Upcoming Release: Kiss My Boots by Harper Sloan + Review



Coming July 18th!

In this second of the sultry, Western-set Coming Home series from New York Times bestselling author Harper Sloan, Quinn Davis might finally have a shot at her own happily-ever-after—but will she let love in, or will she tell it to go ahead and kiss her boots?

Quinn Davis prefers to live her life quietly. She’s the stereotypical tomboy with two overprotective big brothers who have always been there to protect her, especially from devilishly handsome cowboys with silver tongues. That is, until Tate Montgomery comes riding into town. Their first meeting, however, is far from something out of a fairy tale and only further convinces Quinn that men aren’t worth her time.

The only place Tate Montgomery ever truly felt at home growing up was during the long, sweltering summer months he spent at his Gram and Paw’s farm in Pine Oak, Texas. Now, Tate has returned to his childhood sanctuary seeking a fresh start—but if he’s being entirely honest, he’s not just back for the wranglers and Stetsons. During those summers, Quinn was a friend-turned-young-love who Tate lost when life threw him a curveball and he cut all ties to his past; but all it takes is one glance at the raven-haired beauty he did his best to forget for him to realize just how much he’s been missing….

This book was only okay for me. This is Quinn and Tate's story. Quinn is a car mechanic, owns a repair shop and is the youngest Davis sibling. When she was growing up, she was best friends and then fell in love with Tate. Tate's grandfather lived in their small Texas town and he spent every summer there with him. During the rest of the year they texted and email often. The summer they were 18, they got very serious together. As Tate was heading off to college to pursue his dreams of being a doctor, they made plans to have a real, solid, long distance relationship and stay together forever. But after he left that summer, Tate no longer talked to Quinn any more. He cut off all communication with no explanation. Now, nine years later, Tate's grandfather died and left his home to Tate. Tate moves back to town and becomes the town doctor. Quinn struggles over her past hurt, but she has never gotten over Tate and she still wants him. When he gets back to town, she is already drunk at the town bar when he arrives. Somehow she wakes up the next day in his bed, not remembering anything at all, but that broke the ice between them and got them talking again. Because they never stopped loving each other, it is very easy for them to forgive each other and look towards a future together. 

I read and enjoyed book one in the series, but this one was not quite as good for me. There were a lot of little things that bothered me and added up.

Such as: 

- Golly gee willikers, I had forgotten all the cheesy language this series has. Dadgummit, as someone living in Texas, I KNOW this not what we talk like!

- I didn't love Quinn or Tate very much. Tate is very passive. He seems too laid back and not very much of an alpha. He was not an active aggressor in trying to get Quinn to take him back. He doesn't really pursue her when he gets back to town. Quinn makes it known she's available if he wants her, but she wants him to fight for her and he's still kind of lukewarm. They were both just okay characters for me.

-The book was kind of slow moving. Not much action going on, mainly talking.

- It took until around 89% for me to feel the love between them and believe in it enough to get over their past.

Overall, I liked this book, but I didn't love it. It just lacked something, maybe chemistry. The OW drama and the past separation made it hard for me to love. But it was an interesting story and I still like the series. I am looking forward to the final Davis sibling getting his HEA in the future!
