Counting Cowboys by Lacey Wolfe Blog Tour

Can a hot cowboy convince Lauren to stay in Texas and take another chance on love?

Tucker Carver likes to have fun and has no intention of settling down anytime soon. He handles the business side of Carver Ranch for his family, and on the day he's scheduled to meet with their accountant, he instead meets a beautiful woman who changes everything.

Lauren Ford packed up and moved to Texas to start over after her fiancé had an affair with her best friend. Her father's retiring and has offered to let her take over his accounting firm. When she meets Tucker she's immediately taken with him, despite his reputation as a ladies' man. Knowing she isn't looking for love, or even if she wants to stay in Texas, she decides to have fun with Tucker and keep her feelings at bay.

After one taste of Lauren, Tucker has other plans. Lauren is the woman he wants, but for some reason she's resisting. And it doesn't help when her ex-fiancé shows up in town wanting her to go back to Georgia with him. Can Tucker convince her that his feelings are true, or will he lose her forever?

Lauren stared at the papers in front of her, but none of it registered. All she could focus on was the half naked man. The hot, sweaty, tanned man who was now naked in his shower only feet away from her.

She shook her head and rubbed her thighs. Enough. It wasn't like Tucker was the first sexy man she'd seen. She wasn't blind or innocent, but something about him got her panties moist quick. Hopefully, she could make it through this accounting meeting without ripping her own clothes off and offering herself up to him. She had no doubt he would be an awesome lover. The man worked with his hands all day; surely he knew a thing or two that could please her.

Seriously, enough.

Lauren straightened her back and stared at the stack of papers he'd given her. There were receipts, printouts, and such. Tucker seemed to keep good records, so that would make things easier. She removed her computer from her bag and turned it on. After she pulled up the file for Carver Ranch, she studied it once more to familiarize herself with it.

This was a profitable ranch. Last year had been one of their roughest years, but so far, this year was already better. She was sure once she started to fill in the stuff he'd supplied her with, she'd see they'd come back strong from the previous year.

"Everything there?"

Lauren jumped in her seat.

"Sorry, didn't mean to scare you."

Tucker, now dressed, came over and sat next to her. Whatever soap he'd used attacked her senses in a good way. How did someone get out of the shower, yet still smell like fresh cut pines?

She shouldn't do it, but she did anyway. She let her gaze wander over his body. The black t-shirt he wore hugged his wide chest, letting her get the full view of his muscles.

Lauren looked away quickly. "Yeah, I think this is it." She flipped through the stack. "You're free to do whatever while I do this. I know you've got a lot to do."

"Can I get you something to drink?" He stood, and her focus went straight to his crotch.

Oh God. She glanced up quick to see him smirking. The man knew he was sex on a stick with his sandy blond hair and blue eyes. "Do you have some tea?"


"Uh, yeah."

He winked. "I'll be back."

"Take your time." The farther away he was, the more she could concentrate on her work. She wasn't sure what had come over her, but the sooner she got done with this job, the better. Then she wouldn't have to see him again until next quarter.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This was a sweet fun read with just a little angst. Tucker and his brothers run the family ranch. Lauren is taking over her dad’s business. When Tucker opened the door to see the ranch accountant he was in for a surprise, a sexy woman was at his door and on time too! The sparks are immediate between the two and the story is fast and sweet and lots of steam between the two. When Lauren’s ex shows up things shake up and everyone needs to decide what they really want. This is a great pick me up read, highly recommend.

Genre: Romance

Tucker Carver grew up as a country boy with a close knit family. He likes to have fun, but values hard work and family the most. He hasn't felt the urge to settle down yet.

Lauren Ford grew up with her parents divorced. She's always wanted a close family. After her engagement goes bad, she moves from Georgia to Texas to be near her dad and start over.

When the two meet, they are just drawn to each other, but Lauren's fiancé wants her back. Can their attraction keep the new relationship going, or will Lauren go back to Georgia?

I enjoyed this book. It was a quick, easy flowing read for me. The characters were easy to like and were entertaining. I really liked all of the family dynamics. Lauren and Tucker's romance was sweet, loving, and cute, if not a little fast. I would recommend this book to cowboy and romance lovers alike. I will be looking for the next book in the series for another easy, entertaining read.

This is a very sweet novella, which was perfect for a winter's evening read. The two lead characters are appealing, and the family dynamics work well in juxtaposition with their assumptions about each other. The writing is good, and the outcome as we would desire. As an accountant myself, I am always happy when they are not portrayed as overly boring – and I enjoyed the free financial advice that is thrown in for any cowboy down on his luck!

Lacey Wolfe has always had a passion for words, whether it's getting lost in a book or writing her own. Her goal as an author is to have a romance for everyone, whether it’s sweet, sensual, or spicy. She’s had several books on the Amazon best seller lists. When she isn’t writing, she can be found running, talking to her pets, spending time with her family, or lost in some sort of craft. Oh, and she takes kindly to anyone who feeds her cookies.

Lacey lives in Georgia with her husband, son and daughter, their herd of cats and one black lab who rules the house.
