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.

yep homespun romance

I liked the nice story just like book one. it was nice to have an easy read.
not sure if the hereos problem is warranted and then his secret is found out by a family member which leaves me wondering how his persona and admiration will stay the coarse. maybe book 3 ????

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...

I love a cowboy story with a little angst added in, yet fun times too.
Love family blended in , just a fun enjoyable listen for me :)

Hot Drammatic romance

This book was very different from her previous one in the series. She explores, slightly, the BDSM side of sex. The story has a happy ending. The author explores how our life experiences mold us to the people we are. I thought this was an excellent book although very different from my usual. Narration was excellent.

Still waters run deep

Ahhh, Mark Bennett, the broody, stone cold eldest Bennett brother. Nothing/No-one ever gets under his skin...until he literally runs into ‘her’...the new events coordinator at the resort that’s hosting his brother’s wedding. Can she change the mind of the guy who is against relationships? ‘She’ is Katelyn, and she’s new to town...new job, new life. Katelyn’s coming out of a longtime relationship that was boring...beige...and she wants some color in her life. Can the broody cowboy offer her that color? Can she keep her heart safe?
Another great story in the series and can’t wait on Luke’s story!

Sweet and Sexy!

There were many things I liked about this book. I liked the dynamic between the brothers and their mama. I liked the small town aspect. I liked the build up to their relationship, and for once I liked the inner dialogue the H was constantly warring with. I loved the vulnerability the the H showed, and I loved the narration!!

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.
