Publisher's Summary

A supercouple for Christmas.

Rock 'n' roll cowboy Tucker McKay's muse has left the building. Returning to his roots at his Colorado ranch might be the inspiration he needs, and he's done everything he can to ensure his reputation shines for his eventual return to the public eye, should his muse show up again. Ready to leave town, he's not prepared for the paparazzi frenzy after a starlet falls face down on his lap at LA's trendiest new night club.

America's sweetheart, Mackenzie Bennett's career is on the rocks after a few lackluster movies damaged her studio appeal. She needs something to change, and fast. What she does not need is the firestorm that ensues after an ill-fated spill is caught on camera. Spending Christmas in Colorado with the man she publicly embarrassed is her only option to turn around the bad press.

While a fake relationship might drum up the publicity needed to save both of their careers, a small-town family Christmas may be just what they both need to figure out what truly matters....

Buy Rock Hard Cowboy for a steamy, laugh-out-loud Christmas romance!

Note: Rock Hard Cowboy was originally published as part of the Christmas with a Colorado Cowboy boxed set.

Loved!

This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.

A Hollywood starlet and a cowboy musician. What starts out as an arrangement to mutually help each of them turns into a connection that neither of them truly expected. Real feelings get involved, and things start to get serious when they spend Christmas with his family. But things are never that easy, especially when you’re dealing with Hollywood types (managers, producers, directors). But when it’s the real deal, you can make anything happen ❤️. I loved this short story, the love & family, the second chance. And I enjoyed Stella Hunter & Connor Crais as Mackenzie & Tucker. They did a great job. This is a must have!

Great Christmas novella

I really enjoyed this book. It was sweet and fierce all at the same time. The two main characters, Tucker and Mackenzie, are perfect for each other. Tucker a rocker/cowboy and Kenzie, an actress, clicked when they first met, but a bad story in a magazine caused quite a rift between them. But what happened when they next met changed both their lives.
Wonderful narration by both Stella and Connor. They made the story and relationship so real & believable. Loved it!

Terrific romance

This story was so well-rounded & well done! Witty, sexy, and with all the poignant feels, even for a short audio listen. The male narrator could do better on female voices, and the sex was way too graphic for my taste (other listeners might disagree), but overall, the terrific story made up for any of these things. This is a story that will stay with me long beyond the Christmas season, and I hope the author writes more in this genre.

Short and sweet!

Absolutely adorable and romantic and cute. This was a jam packed story and even though it was short it did not feel rushed at all. It's got me looking forward to more of this authors books.
The narrators were perfectly cast for Kenzie and Tucker.

A Surprise...Really Enjoyed The Story and Narration

This is a new author for me and I’knew to the narrators as well. I didn’t expect to like it as much as I did. 😊. I don’t feel the title or the cover gives it justice...it was so well written, it moved along so well and I loved the characters. The secondary characters were a blast!
A movie star who was thrown into the business young and wants to write (she does enjoy acting as well) and has had some flops so she needs a good movie.
A musician who played in a rock band (wrote songs and still loved and missed his Colorado life) lost his mojo to write songs. Leery of each other but also drawn together and they just fit.
I loved that the angst didn’t draw out forever, and enjoyed the blossoming romance
Well worth the time and listen to two wonderful narrators (his female voice could have eased up). A surprise for me and will look for this author in the future
I received a free audiobook for an honest and voluntary review...it is totally honest

Great Story & Narration🎧 Captivating & Delightful!

Christina Hovland’s “Mile High Matched” series is one of my favorite series and Audible listens, I was happy to see added another book to the series. This book brings us two new characters, Tucker McKay and MacKenzie Bennett. These characters are not set in the same circle as the rest of the series, but there is a connection, Tucker is friends with Brek, a main character from the first book “Going Down on One Knee”. Brek makes an appearance in this book and it was great to see him again. I adored Tucker, his family was awesome too. MacKenzie grew on me as the book went on she is so much more than she first appeared to be. Tucker lost his muse and his band broke so he is quitting rock ’n’ roll and his heading back to his Colorado ranch. He out in a popular night club when a whirlwind lands in his lap, that whirlwind was MacKenzie Bennett, a Hollywood actress with the paparazzi on her tail. Her career is in jeopardy because her latest movies tanked in the box office sales. Falling into Tucker’s lap in the nightclub did not help matters but her PR team comes up with a plan, that will help both her and Tucker’s image, his PR rep agrees. That plan is a fake relationship, so they need to become the next “it” couple, get the press on their side and make their fans happy. They agree to do it and while she has an ulterior motive for doing it not everything goes as planned. I loved how everything played out in this book, the author fit an impressive amount of story into her novella sized book, there is plenty of drama, humor, heartfelt & emotional moments and some hot romance. Christina Hovland, thank you for another great story and emotional rollercoaster ride.

🎧📚🎧 And for the wonderful narration, Stella Hunter and Connor Crais were perfectly casted to bring these characters and their story to life. Their portrayal of the characters is spot on, sounding just as I picture them to sound. They set the perfect tone for the story, captured all of the characters emotions which is reflected in their performance. Both are entertaining storytellers and versatile voice artists. Thank you for another great listen it is always a pleasure to listen to your work.

Perfect holiday teaser!

Leave it to Christina Hovland to make me laugh and fall in love! This novella has all the feels and its swoon worthy hero impossible not to fall for. Meet Kenzie, a movie star trying to pull her career up. Falling into the lap of Tucker, a rock and roll cowboy may be the ticket for her. He has always kept his reputation in tact and he could be the answer to her prayers. These two pretend to be together as a media ploy, but what happens is unexpected. Going to Colorado to celebrate Christams with Tucker's family proves to be the best medicine for them both. Hovland uses humor and pure family love and fun to bring this story to life. Not only are Kenzie and Tucker fantastic, but the family makes the holiday a wonderful celebration.

Narrated by Stella Hunter and Connor Crais, the story flows. Casting is so important and these two fit their characters and brought all the warmth to the story. Their comedic timing is spot on. Hunter nails Kenzie. She emotes her personality letting us feel her love, and her back pedaling guilt. Crais has a charismatic sound and gives Tucker a warmth that is so appealing. Loved their performance.
