Perfect is good. 

Imperfect is even better. 

City-slicker lawyer Jeannette Trenton is about as welcome at the Last Chance Ranch as a rattlesnake at a square dance. She's there to atone for one major mistake. But Jeannette's pretty sure righting her big wrong does not include thinking lustful thoughts about the ranch's new cowhand. 

Zach Powell knows Jeannette's type — a wound-up-tight perfectionist with one eye on her email at all times. Heck, that used to be him. She needs to shake it loose, face her imperfections and allow herself to make mistakes. There's definitely no mistake about the wickedly sexy vibe between them. This gal is gonna have to “cowboy up” — or miss the ride of her life!

I know this series has been going on for a long time, and I joined in one or two books back, and I was surprised at how easy it was to jump into such an established series, and how easy it was to enjoy the character that the author put in front of me. I was really excited to read this book, I love the western ranch setting, and I enjoyed the other book I had read in this series a lot, and in the end I was really pleased with the book.

The book starts out with Zach, who apparently has left a lucrative career behind to start over in a completely new place making very little money and living out of an airstream trailer, complete with solar shower. To say this guy did a complete 180 would be a bit of an understatement. He’s a bit of an outsider because of his newcomer status, but he’s just an genuinely a good guy, and I think the thing I liked the most about him was that he reserved judgement about people until he had all the facts. Plus he’s a super good looking dude who knows how to make a lady happy.

So Jeannette I liked a little bit less than I liked Zach. I liked her a lot in the beginning, she was brave enough to come into a situation where a lot of people weren’t exactly going to get her much of a chance. But she shows up at the Chance Ranch anyways, and does her best to be good to everyone she meets, all while holding her head high. I liked that about her a lot. The one thing that annoyed me about her, was at some point she started to get a little pushy with Zach and what she believed he should be doing with his life, especially since their relationship was suppose to only be for a couple of days. That being said I loved the chemistry they had together, and I also really liked how willing Jeannette was to try new things and to go out of her comfort zone. Especially when it turned out she actually really enjoyed all the things that Zach was introducing her to. 

All in all this is another good addition to the series. It’s a nice and enjoyable read from beginning to end, and I think anyone who liked contemporary romance with a western flare should take a look at this series, because it’s definitely one I have enjoyed.
