EskieMama & Dragon Lady Reads Review: Naked Hunger by Desiree Holt
Naked Cowboy series
His heart has an appetite only one woman can satisfy.
Naked Cowboys, Book 8
Sable Hunter paid her dues caring for suburban pets in West Texas. Ready to get back to her first love—large animals—she’s excited about moving to Saddle Wells to take over for the retiring veterinarian. With a reputation to build, she can’t afford any distractions, and the sizzling heat between her and local rancher Ryan Donovan could seriously mess with her focus.
Ryan earned his stripes the hard way, one bull at a time on the rodeo circuit. Now he’s put his prize money to work raising bulls for competition. He can’t deny he misses the rush of pro riding—until the sweet new vet in town brings a different kind of excitement and makes him want to sweep her into his bed and his future.
Becoming friends with benefits sounds like an excellent compromise to Ryan until he can convince Sable she doesn’t have to choose between career and love. But a costly mistake could destroy her career, as well as any chance for happiness with the man she realizes she loves.
Warning: Contains a woman whose career is taking off, and a man whose career is changing direction faster than a spinning bull. Hang on, ladies, this cowboy’s got a free hand and it’s about to get wild!
Review: 4 1/2 stars
I hate to admit it, but this was my first Desiree Holt book I have read. I keep asking myself why. Talk about HOT, the chemistry between Ryan & Sable was that, from the first time their eyes meet. Sable tried to fight it, with being the new vet in town and a woman at that, she felt the ranchers would not take her seriously around their livestock, she felt she had something to prove. She didn’t have time for a committed relationship and she felt a relationship wouldn’t work out with her with the hours she kept as a vet. Boom! Ryan and her had their first round in the sack and another and another. Could she keep it friends with benefits and not want more. She was starting to question herself if she wanted more with Ryan and if she did could a relationship work with him with her crazy hours, just when she was willing to give him more, KABOOM!!! Ryan goes and does something stupid, I wanted to go through the book and strangle him. But at the end he redeems himself.
If you are looking for a quick, HOT cowboy read I recommend you pick up a copy of Naked Hunger by Desiree Holt. You will be fanning yourself just like I was. I can not wait to read another of Desiree Holt’s books.
I received a free copy for my honest review!
