"Logan Tate—all six foot three of honed, flexible, and surprisingly inventive and unpredictable Montana man candy—would be totally worth it."
This time around the overall story arc is a charity calendar featuring the town's first responder hotties, including brooding Deputy Sheriff, Logan. He's not exactly receptive to the idea of getting his kit off, even if for a worthwhile cause but it soon becomes apparent that when it's flighty British photographer, Charlotte Foster doing the persuading, he doesn't stand a chance.
"It’s not every day a girl has an orga$m so epic she passes out."
Heartfelt, with plenty of humour and hot and steamy moments, along with introductions to characters we can expect much more from, Heidi Rice has set-up the series well and I can't wait to meet the rest of the Men of Marietta.
Wow - the start of a new series based in Marietta, Montana - I couldn’t wait to read this story! I certainly wasn’t disappointed. It continues on from the Bachelor Bake-off series but you don’t need to have read those stories to appreciate this one. The key elements for this new series are the hunky first responders - cowboys, firefighters, medics, lawmen, pilots, etc - who are to pose for a calendar to raise money to help fund the development of Harry’s house, a community driven project to honour Harry who was tragically killed whilst trying to help an elderly couple. The project is to develop a safe place for children to go before and after school, a place where they can have support, activities and so much more whenever they need it. This first story tells how the idea of the pin up hotties calendar started . . . .
Charlotte (Charlie) Foster is a feisty, independent and very successful photographer who resents any alpha male trying to tell her what she should do. That’s exactly what happened when Logan Tate, a Marietta rancher who also works as a Deputy Sheriff, first spots her taking photographs near to where Harry was killed. He demands she rides into town with him and when she refuses he arrests her! After such an auspicious introduction he actually doesn’t charge her once they get to town but when she turns up at Grey’s Saloon and suggests the first responders pose naked for a calendar to raise funds he definitely doesn’t think it a good idea!
The chemistry between Charlie and Logan is so hot! There is some brilliant banter between them and with the other first responders. The sexual tension is high and there are many laugh out loud moments in the story, too. They are brought vividly to life in the story - and when you consider they’re all going to be posing for the calendar in future stories it is such a shame it is only in my imagination and not hanging in front of me now! It is great to go back to visit the Marietta community and even if you haven’t read other stories based there it is still brought to life brilliantly in this book. For those who are familiar with the location, many familiar people and places are there in this story like old friends. This is a brilliant start to the new series and I really look forward to reading more stories involving these heroic young men in future.
I received a copy of this story via NetGalley and this is my honest review after reading it.
Logan is a man who takes his duty to serve and protect extremely seriously. Which is how he ends up cuffing Charlie to get her out of the cold. He’s serious and responsible and has rather lost the ability to enjoy life. Luckily for him, Charlie could not be more different. She flits here and there, taking photos, moving on, never taking anything seriously. They should have nothing in common, but beneath their tough exteriors, both have childhood issues that are about to come back to haunt them.
I liked both Logan and Charlie, and I particularly liked them together. They definitely bring out the best in each other – well, once they give into their chemistry and get all the awkward tension out of the way.
I loved Charlie’s ideas for the calendar and would have loved to have seen more of the photo shoots and the other guys. However, as this is a multi-author series, I could understand why we only got to see Logan and his brother Lyle. Still, I missed the possible fun. I also felt that because of this not being included in the book, a lot of time gets glossed over towards the end. It is only a short book, so I could also see why this happened, but after the enjoyable build up, it ended up feeling a bit rushed.
Like the ending. That was far too swift a turn around for me. They both have deep issues, but only one of them really works through them in the book. The other one gets worked up over something, takes it a little to the extreme, then suddenly, no, no, it’s all fine. HEA! Hm.
Which is a shame, because the rushed up ending aside, I really enjoyed this. Charlie and Logan are both likeable and their relationship is feisty and fun, with a nice amount of heat. Overall, I love the idea of this new series and found this first book a fitting start.
