The S-Factor: Sensual and Satisfying


“Care to take those boots for a spin, Miss O’Keefe?”

Jen O’Keefe will agree to just one dance with coolheaded cowboy Drew Laramie. But only for old times’ sake. She can’t risk losing her heart to him again.

Drew left Larch Valley, promising Jen he’d return. When he didn’t, she moved on… Now the childhood sweetheart Jen had stopped waiting for is back!

Review: ♥♥♥♥♥

Jen has just finished signing her life away for a bank loan – or that’s what it feels like – when who does she bump into? Literally. Someone it took her many, many years to get over. But he says he’s home to stay. He wants to bring the ranch he inherited from his dad to life again, and he needs help. Her help.

Jen needs to spend time working on her bakery expansion. She doesn’t have time to chase around doing all the things that Drew needs her to do. So why does she constantly find herself doing these things, and neglecting her own? How many times does she need to get caught kissing him in public before she learns it’s best not to kiss him at all?

How does she feel when she – finally – discovers the real reason why Drew left and never came back until after his dad was dead? What has to happen before she forgives him for deserting her? How do Lucy and Brody fit into this picture?

Another book I read written by Donna Alward was “The Rancher’s Runaway Princess”, featuring Lucy and Brody. I loved it! So when I was asked to review this book, I was not about to say no. It did not disappoint. The characters in Donna’s books are real. They act the way real people act, they speak like real people, they are so real you can almost feel them breathing. Her love scenes are so real you get hot flushes, yet they are very tastefully done. Her descriptions are so vibrant you can almost see the scenery around you. She has a superb command of the English language.

This book is the first in a duet of books called Cowboys & Confetti. The second one, “Her Lone Cowboy” will be out in March. I can hardly wait. The way Donna writes is so realistic and refreshing that to read her books brings pure joy.
