The emotional intensity in KISS MY BOOTS is deeply affecting because of the genuineness conveyed in every scene. I felt anxious during serious situations when outcomes were uncertain, while laughter was uncontrollable because of countless conversations filled with quick-witted banter. Harper Sloan managed to keep me fully engrossed while reading the second book in the Coming Home series, as her characters are described so well that they actually feel like they are truly real.
Since her father owned an auto shop that specialized in custom work, Quinn Davis became fascinated with cars at an early age. She has taken over the business and really enjoys her days at the garage, and though she has plenty of interaction with men, she has not dated in a long time. The reason for her disinterest is because of the way her relationship with Tate Montgomery ended. While he only came to stay with his grandparents during the summer months, Quinn thought what was between them could survive when he went away one more time. Sadly, it did not.
When she first hears the man who broke her heart is coming back to Pine Oak, Texas to live, she cannot keep the long-buried memories from being dredged up again. There was a huge reason Tate never returned to the one place where he felt at home, and he hopes Quinn will eventually forgive him. But getting the feisty woman to change her mind about him will take some clever scheming.
With plenty of honest emotions and fiery passionate encounters, KISS MY BOOTS captivates during every believable set of circumstances. From the very start, feelings are expressed with candid openness, and the truth behind any sentiment was easily sensed because of the author’s skillful writing. Harper Sloan has certainly written a winning novel, as I came to strongly care about the welfare of the main characters. Tate proved over and over again that he is someone worthy of being loved, and why he never came back to Pine Oak is cleverly conceived in order to give him another opportunity with Quinn. While she was terribly hurt when he left her never to return and is still suffering, I was very glad she gave him the chance to explain at some point and not drag out their differences for the whole story as some books seem to do. Though trust does need to be built as Tate and Quinn come to know one another again, their desire is even more potent than before. Their love scenes are definitely steamy, and their lusty craving adds plenty of enthusiastic creativity.
There are so many wonderful characters in the Coming Home series, from Tate and Quinn to friends and relatives. I experienced the many ups and downs in their lives, and I also came to know these individuals on a very personal level as new details became known. There were a huge number of moments where amusement was present, as comments would come across as hilarious while actions could be comical, too. I will definitely be recalling some of the more humorous incidents, because they are just too original to forget. It was great catching up with Maverick and Leigh from the first book, and I cannot wait until Clay’s book is released.
I voluntarily reviewed the book from the publisher via NetGalley, and all comments are my honest opinion
