Rhonda Lee Carver
Taking a dirt bath off a bull lands Jace Jackson into the hands of beautiful, smart, sexy country singer Jessa Garvey. In pain and loopy on pain meds, he has no clue he’s flirting with her, and making a big damn fool of himself. Back in high school she rejected him, and although years have passed, sometimes a cowboy can’t forget. When Miss Priss invades his space at Nirvana, he decides to give her a dose of her own medicine and puts her to work mucking stalls. That’ll teach her…
Or will it?
Trading her guitar for a shovel, Jessa is out to prove to Jace that she isn’t the same person she was as a teenager. As far as she’s concerned, he’ll forgive her even if it kills her, or lands her hot and willing in bed with the dangerously handsome cowboy.
She’s in deep.
Forgiveness is granted, but she isn’t prepared for the choices she must make. Has she changed enough? Does the sliver of selfishness remain?
Jessa is a star, tired from tour after tour she needs a break. Never in a million years did she expect to run into the boy, now a man, who years ago asked her to prom. She had turned him down and her friends had laughed but she didn’t come to his defense.
Jace retired from rodeo, is a Nirvana Cowboy. He agreed to do this rodeo for charity. While seeking refuge from fans he literally runs into Jessa. To avoid the twittering following him, he gives her one amazing kiss.
A successful ride on a bull named Suicide leaves him with a bunch of bruised ribs and a twisted knee. Drugged he mistakes Jessa for staff due to her disguise and the antics drew quite a few chuckles from me. As the pain meds fully kick in he loses his balance and falls on her.
This is a favorite scene.
“What do you do here?”
He pointed to her hat. “Staff.”
Before she could answer, his eyes rolled and he bobbed back and forth, then moaned. Just as she suspected, she was no resistance against his weight. Together they sprawled to the floor with him laying on top of her, pinning her underneath his unconscious body. Her legs were spread wide with him nestled in between. “Jace?”
“Hello? Yoo-hoo!” She tapped him on the shoulder. This time she received a deep snore in response.
Oh no. I’m trapped.
She tried pushing him to the side, but he was too heavy. His snoring grew louder, tickling her ear drum. Her limbs were quickly falling asleep. And if this position wasn’t enough to throw her for a loop, his hand came up and grasped her breast. It wasn’t humiliation skittering through her body, but instead was a reminder that she was a woman who craved a man’s touch. A woman who found this cowboy sexy and amazingly virile.
This was the closest she’d been with a man in a very long time.
He jerked and she looked down. He was staring up at her. “Jessa? That’s you,” he mumbled. “You, snob, you. I didn’t like your prom dress.
She froze. So, he does recognize me. Although he was talking out of his head.
“You’re cozy,” he said against her chest.
Jessa knew she should be doing her best to get the brawny man off her body, but she found it quite entertaining. And she had a feeling this wouldn’t be the last time she saw Jace Jackson, not if she could help it.
