Pushin’ Buttons by Em Petrova Blog Tour

Sexual dysfunction. The words make Sibyll cringe, but after one too many failed relationships, she has to face reality. Her O-button is broken, big time. Sick of sitting on the sexual sidelines, she books a week at Boot Knockers Ranch. If a passel of rugged cowboys vying to bring her bliss can’t get her off, nothing will.

Hugh had planned to sit out this week’s rotation of sexual therapy, but when he spots sultry Sibyll, he pulls rank. His bone-deep urge to possess her isn’t enough to coax elusive orgasms out of her body, though. And his resolve to give the lady whatever she needs wavers when she shyly makes a mind-blowing request.

Riggs stepped aside when Hugh muscled in to claim Sibyll, but he jumps at the chance to fulfill her ultimate fantasy—a threesome. But once they come together, all barriers are stripped away, exposing his love for the one man—and woman—he’d break every last rule to make his own.

Sibyll followed her gaze to the door between stage entrance and hallway several feet away. His back was to her and the other dozen women, his shoulders taking up most of the door frame and his white T-shirt molded to a chiseled back. Sibyll outlined his back muscles with her gaze, cutting a path down to a backside hugged by worn denim.

The cowboy pivoted. His face was illuminated by the overhead lights as he talked to the perky Isabel, the ringleader of this insane audition process.

“He has a black eye!” someone whispered.

“From a bar fight? Please let it be from a bar fight!” a woman with a gorgeous head of red hair and thick glasses added.

The cowboy raised his head and stared at the women. Suddenly Sibyll’s muscles tensed to run. She didn’t want to be here, had made the wrong decision. So what if I can’t experience “physical and emotional sensation at the peak of sexual excitation” according to Dictionary.com?

Isabel swooped through the door and pointed at the curvaceous brunette to Sibyll’s right. “You’re next.” Then she returned to the doorway, where she leaned and talked to the cowboy with the black eye.

Dust motes swirled hectically in the lights streaming from the stage. Sibyll tried to follow one with her eyes. Anything to keep from looking directly at that cowboy’s handsome, rugged face.

He was huge—tall and broad and muscled in all the ways that made the knot in Sibyll’s core want to unravel. But it never did.

Maybe if he fights to win me, I could.

He glanced up again, and the group of women tittered. The leggy blonde was led offstage on the arm of a cowboy wearing all black except his shiny silver and turquoise belt buckle.

“Wow, he’s fine. Jenny’s lucky to get him,” the virgin whispered after they passed. They stopped at the door, and the production manager moved to the side so they could pass.

The black-eyed cowboy with the two-day-old dark stubble on his jaw shook hands with both cowboy and contestant.

“You—sexy secretary—you’re next.” The production manager jabbed a finger in Sibyll’s direction.

She looked around herself. A slight girl to her right wore a peasant dress and thong sandals, and the tall, toned girl to her left wore sporty shorts and a T-shirt with an energy drink logo.

“Wh—? Me?” Sibyll pointed to her chest.

“Yep, you.” The production manager whirled back to speak with the cowboy, but he’d strolled through the door and was making his molasses-sweet way across the stage.

He passed the first group of contestants, who froze like a herd of deer in the middle of Highway 495. He dipped his head and positioned a battered brown cowboy hat on it. “Howdy,” he drawled, lips curled in the perfect dose of Southern gentleman and cocky bad-boy.

Feminine sighs sounded in response. Sibyll’s heart thumped as he neared her small group standing nearest to the stage. The closer he got, the more his bulk seemed to take up all the space in the room. Or maybe that was testosterone.

He dropped a wink at the virgin and leaned in to speak to her. “The black eye was nothin’ as glamorous as a kick-ass bar fight. Took a hoof yesterday working with the horses.” He straightened and settled his gaze right on Sibyll.

She stopped breathing as electricity passed between them.

That’s my imagination. I’m so keyed up.

The cowboy cleared his throat but didn’t say anything. Around them, women gawked. Hell, even Isabel the production manager stood with her mouth open, glancing between the huge cowboy and her clipboard.

“Hugh, you’re not filling in today, are you?” Isabel asked.

The man blinked, severing his hold on Sibyll. He shook his head. “Nah, I’m not competin’ today. I’m Master of Games as usual.” He pinned Sibyll again with his gaze. Something dark and exciting coiled low in her belly. What if this man did stand up for her?

I’d choose him in a heartbeat.

Mary Jo – ☆☆☆☆

The author has done an amazing job of developing the premise of the Book Knockers Ranch and the characters in this story.

It gives you everything a reader wants: hot sex, stubborn cowboys, an endearing heroine, and romance.

I can't wait to see what Ms. Petrova has in store next at the Boot Knockers Ranch.

Sibyll goes to the Boot Knockers Ranch in Texas to get some help. A week of trying to find the big O. She has never had an orgasm, she thinks it is broken. But when she gets there and sees the sexy, hunky cowboys, she thinks that the big O is right around the corner. When Hugh and Riggs fight for her, she is so excited. But after two nights with Hugh and still nothing. She gets to the edge but never flies. So what will Hugh do to help her? All the while feelings are beginning to surface. Turns out that her ultimate fantasy is a threesome. And Riggs is all too happy to join in but Hugh is not so much, he doesn't want to share Sibyll. Will Hugh or Riggs step aside and let the other spend the last two days with her? This is a very HOT, steamy, sexy story with stubborn cowboys and a heroine that will learn what she wants and needs is the same thing. This is a first for me by Em Petrova and I loved it and can't wait for more of this series.

I loved this book. I am a romantic at heart and when three people get their chance at love, it is even hotter! Sybill's thoughts as she is trying to enjoy herself at the beginning of the book are wonderfully written, and resonate through a good part of the story. This cleverly sets up many of the misunderstandings that give us the drama we readers crave! The caring alpha male quotient is definitely high in this story. Perfect escapism and highly enjoyable.

I look forward to the next in the series - as there were plenty of cowboy boot knockers in need of love at that ranch.

Shelby – ☆☆☆☆
This story was well developed, had likeable characters, and some seriously HOT scenes!

Welcome to Boot Knockers Ranch, an ideal ranch in Texas, complete with REAL cowboys that help women overcome sexual dysfunctions. (Sign me up!)

Sybill is our heroine and she is trying to FINALLY orgasm.

Lucky for her, not 1 but 2 cowboys are interested in helping her overcome her issue.

Better yet, the two cowboys have a bit of "history" together!

Overall this was steamy story, full of romance, action, and sweet romance.

I'm really interested in the rest of this series :)

I instantly wanted to read this book after reading the blurb. Who can pass up on Cowboys and sex? Not this girl! This was a well written book and the sex was off the charts. It was a one sitting read for me and I loved the ending. I can’t wait for the next installment!

Characters: The characters were well written and you couldn’t help but feel their emotions and at times I felt like I was right there in the room with them. Heck, I wish I WAS there! The chemistry between Hugh and Sybill is amazing but with Hugh and Riggs it was electric!
Sex: Holy hotness, the sex was outstanding. You had M/M, M/F and M/F/M who could ask for more? SO HOT!!!
Religious: No
Would I recommend to others: Yes
More than one book in the series: Yes
Genre: Romance/Menage
Would I read more by this author: Yes

Veronica – ☆☆☆☆
Pushin' Buttons is hot. Prepare to have your knickers soaked ladies! Perfect threesome scenario for me. Two sexy guys who not only want the girl but also want each other. The story has romance as well and I'll confess to shedding a tear or two. Oh - watch out for the practical joke. It is very funny.

I loved reading about the Boot Knockers ranch, a place women can go to fulfil their fantasies, it was fun and steamy and I so want to go there! I fell completely in love with Riggs and Hugh and I wanted to be Sybill.

I'm looking forward to reading book 2 which I hope isn't too far away.

Em Petrova lives in backwoods Pennsylvania, where she raises four kids and a Labradoodle puppy named Daisy Hasselhoff and pays too damn much for utilities. She loves to write gritty characters with lots of heart and is well-known for scorching, panty-soaking erotic romance.
