Kickin' Up Dust by Em Petrova Blog Tour

This Marine follows the rules. This cowgirl is all about breaking them.

After losing his best friend and CO, Matt, in combat, Brodie Bell didn’t think his spirits could sink any lower. He was wrong. One look at his and Matt’s storm-flattened hometown nearly levels him.

Los Vista needs a leader, and as Brodie takes the weight of the world on his shoulders, he comes up with a plan. Merge the two ranches left standing, pray for a good calving season…and keep his hands too busy to get busy with Matt’s sexy little sister.

Danica was in pigtails when Brodie and Matt went off chasing glory. Now she’s a woman with a broken heart, but if Matt knew of the depraved cravings Brodie ignites in her body, he’d haunt her from the grave.

As they work to mend miles of broken fences, Brodie fights to ignore Danica’s tiny cutoff shorts and mile-long legs—and to ignore the “weapon” that’s locked and loaded in his Levis. Because the last thing he wants is to dishonor his friend’s memory by ravishing the sweetest little cowgirl he’s ever laid eyes on.

Warning: Involves a sweet and sassy ranch girl who knows her way around a rope, and a Marine turned cowboy who’d like to tie her down and spank her until she begs for more.

Mary Jo☆☆☆☆
I didn't even have to read the blurb to know I *had* to read this book. I've ready enough of Em Petrova's books to know that this would be one that I would not be able to put down and I wasn't disappointed in this one at all.

This book took all sorts of plot twists and angst and wrapped them up in tidy, or untidy, love story that kept me on my toes from the first page to the last.

Brodie Bell is a Marine, a longtime resident of Los Vista, Texas, and heartbroken because his best friend lost his life before the end of their last deployment. As he and his friends get closer to their hometown, they begin to notice the devastation that a tornado has wreaked on their beloved homes.

Finding the Bell and Pope Ranches still standing, albeit beat up quite a bit, he enlists Danica, his best friend’s little sister, to help him restore their birthrights. However, guilt at every turn slaps him in the face as he realizes that Danica is not the little girl he remembered, she's grown up in every way and he can't help but notice her as a woman and not the sister of the man he called his best friend.

Danica grew up while her brother and his friends went off to be Marines. Now that they are home, she has no problem letting them know how grown up she really is – especially Brodie.

If you have a few hours to devote to reading, I would highly recommend giving this one a go.

The first in a new series, this sets the scene of a town in Texas devastated by a freakish tornado. Returning home to find their town gone, a group of ex-Marines – less their CO – try and pick up the pieces. Here we get Brodie's story (CO Matt's best friend and neighbour), full of grief for his friend and PTSD from all he experienced. And what a moving and passionate one it turns out to be.

Danica, Matt's sister, has been holding it all together, and is more excited than she wishes she were when Brodie returns. She is no longer a young girl, but a hard-working cowgirl, now she just has to get him to see that. As the barriers between them break down, and they rebuild a better future, we cannot help but get invested in them.

If you've read the Boot Knockers series, you may be expecting more sex than story, but this is firmly hot romance. I enjoyed it a lot, and look forward to watching the rest of the team in their endeavours too.

Em Petrova lives in Backwoods, Pennsylvania, where she raises 4 kids and a Labradoodle named Daisy Hasselhoff. Her dream is to find an old pickup and travel small-town USA, meeting new people. Her heroes are hardworking–in bed and out–and she is known for panty-scorching erotic romance.

She also writes lesbian romance as Hallie Knight.
