Blog tour & 5* review - Kickin' Up Dust by Em Petrova

Kickin’ Up Dust

Operation Cowboy Book 1
July 19, 2016


This Marine follows the rules. This cowgirl is all about breaking them.

Operation Cowboy, Book 1

After losing his best friend and CO, Matt, in combat, Brodie Bell didn't think his spirits could sink any lower. He was wrong. One look at his and Matt's storm-flattened hometown nearly levels him.

Los Vista needs a leader, and as Brodie takes the weight of the world on his shoulders, he comes up with a plan. Merge the two ranches left standing, pray for a good calving season…and keep his hands too busy to get busy with Matt's sexy little sister.

Danica was in pigtails when Brodie and Matt went off chasing glory. Now she's a woman with a broken heart, but if Matt knew of the depraved cravings Brodie ignites in her body, he'd haunt her from the grave.

As they work to mend miles of broken fences, Brodie fights to ignore Danica's tiny cutoff shorts and mile-long legs—and to ignore the "weapon" that's locked and loaded in his Levis. Because the last thing he wants is to dishonor his friend's memory by ravishing the sweetest little cowgirl he's ever laid eyes on.

Warning: Involves a sweet and sassy ranch girl who knows her way around a rope, and a Marine turned cowboy who'd like to tie her down and spank her until she begs for more.

I really enjoyed this emotional, sexy romance from Em Petrova. Kickin' Up Dust is the first book in a new series, and this book gets the series off to a great start with Brodie and Danica's story.  Em Petrova brilliantly balances humour, raw emotion, love and passion to create a book that I couldn't put down. It is sad in places, but there is also a great sense of hope and new beginnings. 

Brodie and his friends return from combat to find their hometown flattened by a recent storm. He also has a difficult task to complete - to deliver the belongings of his best friend Matt, who died in combat, to his grieving family. When he sees Matt's sister Danica, he's stunned to see the beautiful woman she's grown into. Brodie and Danica set about rebuilding their families ranching businesses, and their grief brings them closer together. Brodie is struggling with PTSD and doesn't think he's good enough for Matt's baby sister, but Danica has other ideas.

Brodie and Danica make a great couple, you could really feel the love between them. They were also very hot together, and I enjoyed seeing Brodie's dominant side. I also really liked the back story of Brodie and his friends working together to rebuild their beloved town, and I'm really looking forward to seeing how this progresses in the next book. Kickin' Up Dust receives five stars.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.
