Publisher's Summary

A city girl reins in the cowboy of her hottest dreams in Wall Street Journal and USA Today best-selling author Lauren Landish's wild romance.

As the eldest brother, the responsibility for the family ranch now rests on Mark Bennett’s broad shoulders. He wouldn’t have it any other way - he loves being in charge. Working hard on the land helps him stay focused and keeps him from noticing what’s missing in his life - what he’ll never allow himself to have for fear that one small taste will break his careful control.

But a sweet blue-eyed blonde has just arrived in town, and the attraction between them is undeniably hot. So Mark tightens the reins around his heart - how can he tell her what he really wants?

Events planner Katelyn Johnson’s new gig is the wedding of a rodeo superstar. Right now, it’s tough not to focus on the rider’s tempting older brother. So far, getting beneath Mark’s gorgeously gruff exterior has been a pleasure.

What she needs to do is go a little deeper. But the closer they get, the more Mark pulls away. Katelyn’s not afraid of a challenge, though. Whatever deep desires he’s hiding, she wants in on his secrets.

All she has to do is get past his legendary reserve. With all her body, heart, and soul, there’s nothing she can’t handle.

Cowboy UP & UP & UP

Oh myyyyyyyyyyy! Mark Bennett may just be my favorite brother of them all. Although, I am anxiously waiting to find out where Lauren Landish will lead us with Luke's story.

Honestly this book was soooooooooo deliciously delightful in every way. I enjoyed the hell (sorry Mama Lou) out of it. This series has been refreshing. A new take on the whole cowboy love story. With minimal angst. Those things alone would make the stories LL weaves hot but then you add in Jacob Morgan & Melissa Moran and you've got a panty melting cowboy love story.

Melissa Moran was the perfect Bad Ass Princess. And I'm pretty sure Jacob Morgan could make the ABC's melt your panties as the quiet bossy big brother. Truly I could not stop listening today. I listened to it straight through and as I type I've started listening again.

Worth a credit? ABSOLUTELY!!! Jacob Morgan is pretty much my favorite book boyfriend that he is an auto download for me. I hope you enjoy even a fraction as much as I did.

My only complaint is waiting for the next book to be available on Audible. I don't want to wait. i want it right now or yesterday. As it is this one was in my Audible pre-orders for months. Please release them faster. Please o'please I need more Bennett Brothers and more Jacob Morgan.

Talking about standing by your man!!! 💣💣🔥🔥💋💋

First, Caitlin is one bad a*s heroine. I love that Lauren Landish wrote a story with a female that figured out it was ok to go after what she wanted no matter how naughty. And Mark her love, well you just have to listen.
I sometimes hate all that back and forth in these romance books but none of that here..
Melissa Moran kudos to you for your wonderful narration. I thought Book1 with Aiden narrating was fantastic but Jacob you dirty boy..I mean man...lol.
I loved this book. OK, so it was hot, raw and edgy but I loved it anyway. 😉😉
Jacob Morgan you can stop by for a cup of coffee and read the yellow pages from front to back and I'd still be wishing for more. 🔥🔥🔥🔥
And is the author thinking about Luke getting a book..I sure hope so with the same sizzle of course...

Riding Hard

Oh my! This one! Mark has everything on his shoulders...keeping the ranch running after his father passed, stopping the neighboring ranch from their vandalism and trying to take over their ranch, and above all else, trying to keep his control when he has his hands on Katelyn, the events planner for James and Sophie's wedding. Katelyn is new in town and she wants to experience everything she can. She has led a "beige" life but no more and one taste of Mark and his loving and she knows what she has been missing and she will not let him go. Now she just has to convince him he has to let his guard down and let himself go and be himself with her. This one was so good!

WHOA!!!

I loved this book! Kaitlyn and Mark’s love story was intriguing and sexy. They had me from the beginning and I wanted one more epilogue. I loved all the other characters as well, which always makes for a better story. Melissa Morgan did a fine job as Kaitlyn and, of course, Jacob Morgan was sexy and cute and fun and, I swear, his female voice is better than most female narrators. I may read this one again one day, it was just that good..

Kinky romantics

I loved everything about this book. Thus far, Mark is my favorite brother. He is a man who is scared to show a woman his true self, until this new breath of fresh air comes to town. What is a cowboy to do, but claim her some how. Awesome story with amazing narration.

even better than the first

This book is so different in so many ways but still fits with the lady one. I love the authors ability to write based on the character wehich really allows each one to show to their best measure and makes them so believable.

accepting who you are

I really enjoyed this book. Caitlyn left the comfort of her mundane life to experience more, things she never knew she was missing. I like that she brought out Mark's emotions and broke through the stoic facade everyone else saw. She saw through his walls and broke them down to see what he thought was shameful. She showed him that you really can find someone who accepts all that you are (even the parts you aren't comfortable with ) and loves you even more for them. I really loved their story. I think the only thing I could have used more of is seeing their kinky sides a bit more and earlier on in the story. It took too long for them to get to that in the book.

Ride Hard and keep going

I'd ride hard in the other direction away from this man. At 2hrs 39 mins we start to learn about his extreme needs; it's down hill from there. I'm sorry for such woman who think this is fun and normal, well it might be for the first 3 months, but violence begets violence and soon spanking will not be enough, and where does it end? Full bondage? How can you bring children into the house of a violent man? Been there, done that.

If it wasn't for the beautiful voice of Jacob Morgan, I would've ended the story long before the end when I realized it's got little to do with ranching either.

Find another story. Find another man.
