OMG hot, steamy, and amazing story. I could just close my eyes and picture everyplace you described in your book. I love when an author is so gifted I am transported through their stories. Loved the story line and was so excited there were 3 books in this series. I was not ready to give it up. A fan for life.

On the day Emma learns of her Gram’s death, she also learns that the man who she believed to be her forever was not going to stand up for her. Leaving New York for a small town in Colorado, she takes over her grandmother’s farm. She has a lot of healing to do to get beyond the broken trust her ex left her with. She was not expecting to get tied up by a cowboy at Kinky Spurs.
Shep was hot to rope Emma in from the first time he saw her. When the opportunity presents itself, he grabs the reins and holds on. He’s got a lot on his plate these days after his father’s death and running his own business. Shep is a fixer and he’s determined he’s going to fix the problems that the Blackshaw Brothers have just learned about. And if she’ll let him, he’d like to help fix Emma’s problems as well.
This was a great cowboy story with plenty of interactions with horses as well as some other livestock curtesy of Emma’s Gram. I loved the way Shep stepped up to help Emma when she was in a little over her head. He has had his own heart broken and he is so patient and kind while he waits for Emma to find her way to him.
This is very well written and deeper than I originally expected it to be. While there is plenty of humor, at the core of this story is the love of family and learning to rebuild trust within yourself. Emma’s transition from fear of her own choices to determination to be what Shep needs in his woman was heartfelt.
There are secondary characters all over the place that I suspect will be getting their own stories and after reading this first installment in the series I’m curious to see how the rest is going to play out. This is my first book by this author and I am looking forward to reading more from her.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book provided by NetGalley and St. Martin's Press. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Dirty-talking Cowboy is a hot and steamy introduction to Stacey Kennedy’s new Kinky Spurs series. Shep and Emma are two strong, captivating characters that have blazing hot chemistry that practically sizzles from every page as this couple engage in a red hot and passionate relationship. The relationship has its ups and downs with emotional woes which has Emma and Shep working hard to reach their happily ever after especially since both of them have no intentions of making their relationship a permanent one.
The plot is fast paced and flows smoothly keeping reader’s attention and keeping them in suspense about how this relationship will work out while keeping the heart pumping with the very steamy passion. It starts off with a scene that had me questioning whether I wanted to continue with the book, but it all comes together and after a little twist and the problems facing Shep and his brothers adds to depth of the story and ensures that I want to get to know all of them.
As usual, Stacey Kennedy does a great job of creating her worlds and bringing them to vivid life with well-developed characters that make it easy for the readers to connect with them. I enjoyed reading this sweet, heartwarming story and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series which I believe is due to be released in October.
