New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Harper Sloan returns with a passionate and breathless romance about the sparks that ignite when a cautious cowboy and a once-scorned woman open up to each other in the third installment of the Coming Home series.
As the eldest Davis, Clayton has always tried to lead by example. He takes his job as head of the family businesses seriously, making sure the farm and auto shop are running smoothly—along with keeping an eye on his brother and sister. For him, there's a time and place to let go of the control he holds with an iron grip. And with the way he grew up, coupled with disastrous end to his last relationship, he's just fine with his quiet, solitary life.
Most of the time.
What he hadn't counted on was cute, quirky, shy bookstore owner, Caroline Michaels. She's the proverbial woman next door—well, the next town over, that is. Caroline hasn't lived an easy life, but after escaping an abusive ex, she's finally living it for herself. The last thing she ever expected was a one-night stand with Clay Davis, a night she can't stop thinking about.
So when she falls on hard times and Clay comes out of nowhere to her rescue, she realizes just how impossible it'll be to stay away from him. Now all she has to do is convince him to live a little...
Will Clay be able to give up the reins and finally settle down? And, more importantly, will Caroline muster enough courage to lasso him up?
#NewRelease COWBOY UP by @HarperSloan @Pocket_Books @simonschuster is NOW available! #oneclick #hotcowboy #cominghomeseries #giveaway
This Texas girl loves a good cowboy story… and when said cowboy story includes a HOT as HELL one like Clayton Davis, I am for sure all in! Cowboy Up is the latest installment in the Coming Home series by author Harper Sloan, and it felt like just that… coming home. At this point, I am fully invested in this series, in these characters, and in this small town world of ranches, horses, sexy cowboys, and the women who fall for them. With that said though, Cowboy Up can be read and enjoyed as a complete standalone just like its predecessors.
A sexy encounter that leads to more is always a winner, however, this sexy encounter is like no other… the mystery that surrounds their initial encounter is electric! Clayton and Caroline steam up the pages from the get go and it is a wild way to start but honestly, I’m not sure how else it would have worked. The chemistry between these two is crazy good. What starts off hot and heavy turns into a slow churning build towards an inevitable relationship. And once Caroline says she is in, Clayton is more than ready to make her his… the alpha, protective, and yes, possessive, man shines through
I enjoyed the push and pull of Clayton and Caroline’s story… the heavy moments, the sweet moments, and for sure the steamy moments. It is a story that you can’t help but fall for, even the Texas twang that rings throughout, grows on you by the end. A great installment to a great series!
Praise for the Coming Home Series
“Modern Cliterature…Enjoy [this] lusty [passage] adapted from summer’s raciest reads…”
—Cosmopolitan, July 2017 (Kiss My Boots, Book 2 in the Coming Home Series)
“Sloan…hits it out of the park…Maverick is a perfect hero: multilayered, complicated, deeply damaged, yet blooming with the new promise of love. Leighton is appealing and real, as are a strong supporting cast of characters whom readers will be glad to follow into sequels. Sloan enhances the gripping story with country songs that open each chapter. This absolutely spectacular effort catapults Sloan to the top of her genre.”
—Publishers Weekly (starred review for Lost Rider, Book 1 in the Coming Home Series)
“A supersexy second-chance read with a handsome ex-rodeo cowboy hero and the girl he left behind. The characters are well written and the bedroom scenes are hot. . . . Sloan does a wonderful job with portraying the secondary characters, and it looks like Quinn’s story, which is next up, is going to be a good one.”
—RT VIP Salon (Lost Rider, Book 1 in the Coming Home Series)
“Sloan brings plenty of heat to this otherwise very thoughtful, building love story, the first in her Coming Home series…Maverick’s pursuit of Leighton and her slow acceptance ignites the vivid ranch and small-town settings. Contemporary western romances are challenging to write, and Sloan makes it fun to read about realistic ways cowboys can fit into modern society. Readers will look forward to learning how the uncovered family secrets affect siblings Clay and Quinn in future books.”
—Booklist (Lost Rider, Book 1 in the Coming Home Series)
“Engaging characters and an appealing small-town setting; [This] second-chance-at-love romance resonates emotionally…Sloan knows her way around sexual tension and emotional intensity.”
—Kirkus (Lost Rider, Book 1 in the Coming Home Series)
