The New York Times bestselling author of Crazy for the Cowboy ropes another sexy Texan in a novel of untamed, passion-filled romance in the Panhandle.… Expert rider Mac Foster’s got it bad for Anastasia Bickford, but he’s fighting it. Not only is she a friend—she’s his boss’s sister, making her the last person he should be lusting after. To make matters worse, she’s creating a name for herself as an artist, and it’s only a matter of time before the world comes knocking at her door. Though Anastasia has a growing reputation for her vivid drawings of a legendary wild stallion they call the Ghost, she’s never seen him. A secret fear of horses has forced her to rely only on photos. Since no one knows the Ghost better than Mac, he can help her overcome her fear by teaching her to ride. But in order to get closer to the stallion, she’ll have to get closer to the man.

Cocktails and Books received this book for free from Galley Sites, NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect our opinion of the book or the content of our review.

In Wild About the Wrangler, we go back to Bickford, TX for the second installment of the Sexy Texans series. This installment picks up shortly after the first book left off and follows Anastasia and Mac, both of whom we met in the first book.

This is a pretty classic friends to lovers story as Mac and Anastasia have been dancing around each other for a while. She asks him for help over coming her fear of horses and that brings their mutual attraction to the front and center. The story that follows shows us the challenges they have in deciding to be together and then the tough decisions that had to be made to stay together.

Wild About the Wrangler is a well written and fun book, and it’s a great book to curl up and snuggle with. Anastasia and Mac are both likeable characters that you enjoy being around. One of the things I liked about this book, was that the conflict between the characters wasn’t manufactured, Mac genuinely felt the way he did and his battle with those feelings was a recurring theme.

Having read the first installment of this series, I slipped seamlessly into this story as well, but I do think it would also work as a stand-alone effort. I am looking forward to seeing what happens next for the folks of Bickford.

I'm a stay home parent and squeeze reading in wherever I can around driving kids around to school and activities. I read a little bit of everything, but really enjoy indie authors and Happy- Ever-Afters. I've been reviewing for Cocktails and Books since January 2015.
