Not only did Cat Johnson give us a bull rider but she gave us an active duty Army bull rider….can you say alpha hot man x 2, all rolled up into one delicious hunk of man flesh? You might as well drop your panties right now ladies, because if you don’t Tucker Jenkins will melt them right off! ~ Guilty Pleasures
One Sweet Ride…
Oh yeah. A single look at the leggy blonde in the stands and Tucker Jenkins is ready to buck all night long. It’s time to forget all about his cheating ex and his usual hands off policy.
One Hot Night…
Becca Hart is an East Coast professor. Not a buckle bunny. But no degree can prepare her for the moves of the sexy bull rider she hooks up with at her first rodeo…or the shock of finding him at her first Oklahoma State University staff meeting.
One Happy Ending…
Tuck knows it’s all about holding on, no matter how wild the ride. Now he just has to convince Becca that a rough start out of the chute doesn’t mean they aren’t a smokin’ combination.
Okay, so there’s no denying I had a fan girl crush on Cat Johnson…I’m sorry but it’s the truth. I flat out love the woman; I read what she writes, I follow her on Facebook, I’ve written to her a couple of times including one time to tell her I was disappointed in a book and she and I had a nice conversation about it, and if I ever meet her in person I’m quite sure I’ll hug her until she has me arrested for stalking. That being said, when she announced her plans for a new series set in Oklahoma I was quite nervous. I have been a huge supporter of her Studs in Spurs series (with the exception of one book) and her Red, Hot And Blue series, and I wondered if she’d be able to recapture the same magic again. Having just finished One Night With A Cowboy, I’m no longer skeptical and I think I love her a little bit more. Not only did she give us a bull rider but she gave us an active duty Army bull rider….can you say alpha hot man x 2, all rolled up into one delicious hunk of man flesh?

When Tucker and Becca meet at a rodeo in Oklahoma there’s an instant connection and some undeniable chemistry. Since she’s returning to New York the next day, they both decide to just give in to their desires and they have a pretty remarkable night. They part ways without exchanging phone numbers or even email addresses. But they both have a pretty hard time forgetting the other one. Imagine Tuck’s surprise when he’s introduced to the new English associate professor at Oklahoma State University where he works in the ROTC program. Their reunion was less than happy but they manage to find a way to be friendly. However when Becca’s job is threatened, Tuck does what he feels he must to save it, despite what it could cost him.
I have to say Tuck is one of those guys that seem too good to be true but when it comes down to it, he’s simply just a really nice guy. Other than being a little stubborn and not very good at communicating, it’s hard to find any faults with him. Just thinking about him makes me sigh. I really liked Becca as well; she’s smart, funny, and a little neurotic at times, but aren’t we all? I love that she didn’t make unreasonable demands of Tucker and that she supported him in the best way she knew how. I also love that despite how they parted she tried to figure out a way to make his time away better. The intimate scenes between these two will no doubt leave you as breathless as they are! They are scorching hot!
One thing I’ve always loved about Cat’s books is that her secondary characters are more than just background. They are there in full force to give advice, be a sounding board, knock the main characters over the head when they need it, be a shoulder to cry on, and to offer support and comfort. This book is no different and I’m already anticipating the next 4 or 5 books in this series because of them.
A Night With A Cowboy is an excellent start to what I know is going to be an amazing series. Variety is the spice of life and Cat Johnson’s Oklahoma Nights series has the potential for so many different types of heroes; military men, rodeo men, and yes…even some hot professors. I get a little thrill just thinking about it!
