In Tease Me, Cowboy by Rachel Johns, journalist Selah is back in Marietta to cover the Copper Mountain Rodeo and catch up with her friends. On a night out with the girls talking about their big regret, Selah confesses her regrets about her high school relationship with Levi. He wanted what she wasn't ready to give...and Selah had big plans. Selah has done well for herself, even if her career is satisfying but not challenging, and not one many people take seriously.
Levi is back in Marietta also. This will be his last rodeo before he retires, and he's got plans of his own now. Getting together with Selah was not part of his plan, but she's going to try to convince him otherwise. Even if it is just for one night. Will Levi indulge in their mutual attraction? Neither one of them is looking for forever, but seeing each other again has brought back all the old feelings. Coming home to Marietta gives them both a chance to re-evaluate their lives and where they want to go. Will it be together?
Tease Me, Cowboy is a fun, fast paced second chance romance. I loved the connection that Levi and Selah have, and the attraction is palpable. Selah is mature, knows what she wants, and is going to go for it! Selah has some issues of her own, between family and her career. Adding a hot cowboy to the mix is not what she expected to be doing in Marietta, and I liked how all parts of Selah smoothly fused together. Levi has grown a lot since his high school days, and in different ways he's still looking for more than Selah might be able to give. I really like the maturity of these characters and how they deal with what's happening.
It was great to revisit Marietta and see some of the characters from previous books. I love the small town feel and the rodeo. Rachel's descriptions easily transported me to a place I'd love to be.
Rich with emotions and entertaining, I'd recommend Tease Me, Cowboy to any romance reader looking for a quick, well written book.
