I am so happy to be part of the blog tour for Rachael Anderson's new book, Stick in the Mud Meets Spontaneity. I really enjoyed her book Rough Around the Edges Meets Refinement and this romance is is the same vein.
In Stick in the Mud, we meet Colton, a cowboy who loves what he does. What you see is what you get and he is as steady as they come. He's also giving eleven-year-old Kasja horse-riding lessons (you might remember Kasja from the previous book) and when he meets Kasja's aunt Sam, he's intrigued by her approach to life. She drives a sunshine yellow bug, has a lime green fuzzy steering wheel cover and a summer bucket list that includes riding a bull and having a fling with a cowboy. They are definitely opposites! At one point in the book, they are compared to a tree with roots (Colton) and the wind in the tree branches (Sam). It's pretty accurate!
Of course they have an attraction to each other, but it's complicated. Sam has a job offer in New York for her dream job. She's only home for the summer (hence the summer fling thing). But when things heat up between her and Colton, could she give up her dreams for a possibly forever relationship? Or will he just be a fun summer memory? Could Colton give up his staid way of living to meet her halfway? I really enjoyed reading to find out.
I thought the author did a great job of building the relationship between the two characters. They felt realistic and I loved the ending. A great afternoon read! (Be sure to scroll all the way down to enter the giveaway!)
