WELCOME TO WEDNESDAY

Well , I am on my 4th cup of tea under a fuzzy blanket still in my fuzzy pjs cause I am living on the frozen tundra in Saskatchewan , the mercury has fallen out of my thermometer . The good thing about it being so cold you can curl up with some fun books . Today we are going to review THE DOUBLE D RANCH  by Rochelle Bradley .

                            BOOK BLURB 

 
Longhorns and lingerie...

Much to the chagrin of foreman Josiah, Jessie Davidson wants a romance reduction. But the Double D Ranch hides a secret. Since inheriting the property, Jessie kept her grandmother’s hoard concealed, but now she’s found the courage to purge the unwanted items: steamy novels, thousands of them. Romance has to go! Donating the books is a good thing, right? Not when coupled with a dare.

The dare spirals out of control. The ante is upped when caches of the spicy books, left in barber shops, pool halls, and pubs, challenge others to join the fad. A perverted prankster runs amok playing on the town’s fantasies. Book clubs are formed. Plots acted out. In a town saturated with romance, Jessie finds her love life underdeveloped.

Keep Jessie safe. It’s the promise Josiah Barnes made to Jessie’s dying grandmother. He aims to honor it, even if it means protecting Jessie from himself. Failing her in the past has him on high alert when the Double D becomes ground zero for the arousal avalanche sweeping the town. As a full-support, silent partner, Josiah will do anything to augment the Double D. But when Jessie starts selling handmade lingerie, keeping his hands to himself is easier said than done…

Will she shelve happily ever after like a rejected novel, or open her heart and start a new chapter?

                           MY REVIEW 
    Welcome to THE DOUBLE D RANCH  and the town of Fortuna Texas . Jessie Davidson has inherited the ranch from her grandmother . She has also discovered a hoard of steamy romance novels . When she donates them , she starts finding them all over town and a town caught up in the reading of said novels . Acting them out and just having romance all over the place . As her love life is idle , but there is a spark from a man that has been in her life will bring more then any romance novel  can ever do . 
    The characters were fun to read , there are some really wacky over the top characters in Fortuna Texas . Jessie and Josiah are such a cute couple even though they are just a little na├»ve about the whole love thing . They usually end up doing things on a dare . They are sweet and kind and you really want to get to know them . The person that kept me laughing hard was Desire, she is one hilarious woman, she loves to get people to do things that they normally don't do . Trust me ladies you will snort laughing at what these characters get up to . 
   This is a fun, fast read , you can read it on a cold day like today . I will say just be prepared to laugh your butt off . Between the prankster running around town and the men reading romance novels and trying to act them out . You will laugh so hard . There were just a few things that kind slowed the book down a bit . Jessie and Josiah getting together , it took a long time for them to come together . Even though they had feelings for each other. It kind of dragged a bit for me . I over all really enjoyed the story and the characters . If you want a fun read that will leave you laughing check it out , you will not be disappointed

  1. Thank you for reading the Double D Ranch. I'm glad you enjoyed it. My goal was to take the reader someplace new and make them giggle. Goal achieved.

    Desire appears in the next four books. She's such a fun character. Fortuna wouldn't be the same without her.

    Thanks for the kind words and the review.
