Law and order.
For as long as Samantha can remember, Hunter - a man as strong as steel, with a heart of gold - has been her hero. It came as no surprise to Samantha when she found out the ranch-hardened cowboy who always protected her from bullies went on to become the town’s sheriff. What does surprise her is how incredibly hot he still is. And how much she still wants him....
Pride and passion.
And lo and behold, Hunter still has feelings for Samantha. The long-smoldering heat of their innocent flirtation has grown into a full-raging fire. But when tragedy strikes and their small-town community is shattered, Hunter vows to do everything he can to keep his childhood sweetheart safe. But can Samantha trust that Hunter has her best interests at heart...and that after all these years, his love is true?

My biggest issue with One Tough Cowboy was the excessive and repetitive sex scenes. They got so redundant that I started skimming them for anything important that may have been moving Samantha and Hunter’s relationship forward, to no avail. It seemed, to me at least, that the author was far too focused on their sexual relationship and forgot to develop their emotional relationship in any way. They couldn’t be in a room together without being all over one another, to the detriment of letting the reader know why they cared for one another beyond have sex.
Secondly, for a traditionally published book, I found the editorial issues in this book to be glaring – even to my untrained eye. There was a lot of who/that confusion, various typos and misused words, and there was one point where an entire sentence was repeated. I was less than impressed with all of it.
On the plus side, the investigation and implications of it were riveting. I needed to finish the book, even if it didn’t work as a romance for me, so I could find out what was happening in Hunter’s county. I would have loved to see the end be a little more fleshed out – it felt awfully rushed and unrealistic in regards to what Samantha had experienced - and have a little more closure, since I’m not sure I can handle continuing this series, but I did understand that storyline was left a little open-ended since One Tough Cowboy is the beginning of a series.
I think the overall storyline was well developed and plotted out well. As for the main characters I think that there could have been a little more of their past history given since childhood. It was very brief. In addition, it seemed to me that the two characters rushed into a romantic relationship a little two fast even though there was connection between them. That might have been what the authors wanted but seemed awkward to me at times.
I really did enjoy the murder mystery crime aspect of the book that they added to this romance book from start to finish of the book that the reader gets to experience. I think that is something unique to this book that not alot of authors have in addition to the normal romance.
I am definitely interested to see what the next book in this series has in store because there was alot that they had in this story it will be interesting to see what they will do to top it.
This book is a must-read for anyone who enjoys a well-crafted, suspenseful romance. I received an advance reader copy from the publisher via NetGalley and this is my voluntary review. I liked the book so much, I purchased a copy for my keeper library.
Because one of the authors is Lora Leigh. Ms. Leigh is an automatic one click for me no matter what the story. She's that good in my opinion.
As to the story, I enjoyed it for the most part.. but to me it was kinda obvious that two people had written it. I know Lora Leigh's writing style... a cock is a cock. I don't recall in any of her books of pulling back and calling a cock a penis, that's just to sissified. Just isn't her style.. the story itself was pretty much a good read and definitely has murder and suspicious behavior, as well as a load of other surprises. I will DEFINITELY be reading the others in this series.
The story was a complicated mix of corruption and trafficking. Since Samantha had only recently returned to her home town, after taking time off from the Detroit police department, it was unexpected when she and Sheriff Hunter were forced to team up and try to get answers to the strange activities in the county. Samantha’s childhood crush on the older Hunter made their reunion so many years later all the sweeter.
I look forward to finding out more about Hunter’s sexy friends in the next books in the series.
