Having been a fan of Ms. Foster for years, Shohn was a bit of a disappointment for me. ~ Slick, Guilty Pleasures
This Buckhorn man will have to prove his worth to the woman of his dreams—don’t miss this fan-favorite novella from New York Times bestselling author Lori Foster, available as a standalone ebook for the first time… Originally published as Buckhorn Ever After in 2013
Ranger Shohn Hudson can’t help but notice a few things about Nadine Moest. She’s gorgeous, she’s smart, she’s driven, and… she’s apparently not into him. At all. Shohn’s used to being chased, so having the one woman who matters resist his charms is not what he signed up for.
The last thing Nadine wants is to be the latest notch on gorgeous Shohn’s bedpost. But Shohn is determined to win her trust—nd her heart. Once Nadine learns more about the man underneath his cocky exterior, will she start to crack? Let the battle of wills begin…
I enjoyed the original Buckhorn series by Lori Foster a great deal, and I’ve enjoyed many of the novellas featuring the offspring of those first couples, but Shohn just didn’t have the same feel as the others. Shohn as with many of the other men in this series has a reputation of being a ladies’ man even at age 25, but the minute he sees Nadine when he goes to pick up his cousin’s dog he’s a goner. Mind you Nadine lives in the same town as him, is friends with his cousin, and he even protected her from bullies when they were teenagers, but he never noticed her until this moment. I can get past that, I can understand that people change, grow up, and wise up, but considering the fact that she didn’t want to be one of his conquests, their relationship moved way too fast for me. I would have like to see them get to know one another as adults, have some meaningful conversations, even discuss what they were doing together but instead they go from lust to undying love in the blink of an eye. I enjoyed seeing the couples from the original series including Shohn’s parents, Honey and Sawyer, and especially his Uncle Morgan, and while there was a happily ever after, for me it just came way too quick. Having been a fan of Ms. Foster for years, this book was a bit of a disappointment for me.
