Cowboy Up by Harper Sloan Blog Tour


New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Harper Sloan returns with a passionate and breathless romance about the sparks that ignite when a cautious cowboy and a once-scorned woman open up to each other in the third installment of the Coming Home series.

As the eldest Davis, Clayton has always tried to lead by example. He takes his job as head of the family businesses seriously, making sure the farm and auto shop are running smoothly—along with keeping an eye on his brother and sister. For him, there's a time and place to let go of the control he holds with an iron grip. And with the way he grew up, coupled with disastrous end to his last relationship, he's just fine with his quiet, solitary life.

Most of the time.

What he hadn't counted on was cute, quirky, shy bookstore owner, Caroline Michaels. She's the proverbial woman next door—well, the next town over, that is. Caroline hasn't lived an easy life, but after escaping an abusive ex, she's finally living it for herself. The last thing she ever expected was a one-night stand with Clay Davis, a night she can't stop thinking about.

So when she falls on hard times and Clay comes out of nowhere to her rescue, she realizes just how impossible it'll be to stay away from him. Now all she has to do is convince him to live a little...

Will Clay be able to give up the reins and finally settle down? And, more importantly, will Caroline muster enough courage to lasso him up?

I push my hands from his shoulders and palm his jaw as his stubble prickles against my fingers while my hands wander up to his hair. His hat falls to the ground with a thud and I know he’s just as lost in me as I am in him, because he doesn’t even make a move to pick it up. He lets out a deep grunt when I mold myself against his body, seeking some sort of friction. The next thing I know, my back is against the door and he’s gripping my bottom. His mouth hits my jaw with a bite of his teeth, making a squeak of pleasure shoot up my throat, and his deep rumble of laughter reaches my ears as he presses me harder into the door with his hips. The heavy bulge of his erection against that spot makes me so desperate for him that I whimper in relief when his mouth finally closes over mine in a wet tangle of tongues.

I’ve never been kissed so thoroughly.

This is the kind of kiss that sets the bar for any that might follow.

The kind that shows you everything you’ve been missing and everything you never knew you wanted. I’m going to be comparing every kiss I ever have to my dark cowboy’s, even though I know there’s a good chance no one will ever compare. The sounds coming from my mouth, the ones being swallowed by his, are nothing short of needy. My hips move in tandem with the thrusts of his, and even though we’re both fully clothed, I know it won’t take much more of this for me to go off like the town’s fireworks on the Fourth of July.

“Fuck, you taste just like apple pie,” he whispers against my lips, breaking away with a gasp.

“Huh?”

“Goddamn, I love apple pie,” he says before his mouth is back on mine, this time with a whole new kind of hunger deepening his kisses.

I’m held captive, enraptured. Then his hands move from my bottom to glide up my torso. He lifts his hard chest off mine and suddenly those delicious fingers are at my breasts. Even if I had big boobs his hands would dwarf them, I’m sure, but as it is he covers both with a firm grasp before adjusting his hold with a deft twist of the wrists. His mouth continues to feast on mine while his huge hands learn my body with slow movements. I tear my mouth from his with a breathy moan when he pushes my shirt up and slips his fingers into the cups of my bra to tweak my nipples.

“Oh, God,” I moan when he does it again.

“I can’t get enough of you,” he rumbles.

“Please,” I beg, not with the slightest clue as to what I’m begging for.

His hips dig even harder into mine as he leans back, supporting me against the door with that connection alone as he pulls my shirt off. The darkness makes me feel more confident than I normally would be, almost half naked with a man—no, a stranger.

“Yours too,” I tell him as his fingers move to unclasp my bra. “I want to feel your skin on mine,” I breathe, taking over the task so he’ll hopefully give me what I want.

I fumble in my haste to feel more of this dangerous arousal he’s creating in my body, but the second my bra is free and dangling toward the floor, his naked chest collides against mine, pushing me into the door with a force that sends the air rushing out of my lungs.

His mouth hits my collarbone at the same time his hands grasp my bottom, sliding me up the door until I feel the wet heat of his breath against my breast.

Then he stops.

Cowboy Up is the third installment in the Coming Home series. I personally feel it has to be read in order to understand and appreciate each Davis story.

Cowboy Up is Clayton Davis’ story. He's the oldest Davis child and the most anti-relationship in the group. It's been a long time since he's thought about his own loneliness, but a one-night stand with an unknown woman has him questioning everything. He never planned on searching out the woman who gave him an amazing night of pleasure but if fate throws them together, he knows he can't walk away again.

Caroline hasn't been with anyone since she's gotten out of her abusive relationship. One night with a sexy cowboy has her feeling sexier than she thought possible and questioning her solitary life. Can the sexy cowboy bring out the bad in her?

This really was the perfect ending to this series. I loved seeing the sweet, sexy side of Clay, and him finding his happily ever after. I enjoyed seeing the progression of the relationships of Maverick and Leighton and Tate and Quinn. Ms. Harper's knack for writing the sexy alpha has expanded to the sexy cowboy. Cowboy Up is syrupy sweet and brought rounds of tears to my eyes. So worth the read!

Cowboy Up is the third instalment in the Coming Home series and gives us the story of Clayton, the oldest of the Davis siblings. Clayton is serious, focused only on work and his ranch. He has no desire for love and a family like his siblings, Quinn and Maverick. When Caroline enters his life, he starts to want things he never imaged he would. Shy Caroline starts to come out of her shell with the support of a strong man like Clay.

Caroline and Clay are a very sexy couple with great chemistry. But there is more to this story than their romance and relationship. Caroline and Clay each have a crazy ex, someone sets fire to Caroline's book shop and Caroline's nutcase of a mother all add trouble to their lives. On the plus side, the life they are building together is beautiful, and Quinn and Leighton (heroines from the previous books) are both pregnant and about to make Clay an uncle for the first time.

There was plenty going on in and around our couple’s lives, which kept me engaged with the story. The romance between good people who deserve something good together is heartwarming. The epilogue is lovely and an excellent end to the story of the Davis siblings.
