Peek Inside Against the Wall

The last thing Sophie Smith expects when surveying land for her new golf course is to be yanked atop a stallion by a cowboy. And not just any cowboy—Jake Lodge, the Tribal lawyer opposing her company’s development. But Sophie has banked everything on the golf course's success. She can’t fail, no matter how tempting Jake may be.

Finalizing the details on a high-end golf course should have been a breeze for spunky landscape architect Sophie Smith. But when this born-and-bred city girl is literally swept off her feet by a sexy cowboy on horseback, she realizes country life has some serious (and seriously steamy) possibilities. That is, until she finds out exactly who her smoking hot wrangler really is.

Tribal lawyer Jake Lodge will do whatever it takes to block the development. But Sophie is a distraction he didn't expect. A distraction that makes his blood burn. Two different worlds. Two opposing sides. And when they finally give into temptation, the consequences will shake the foundations of both of their lives…

Each book in the Maverick Montana series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order.

”I caught her. I get to keep her.”

From the moment they first meet, Jake Lodge sweeps Sophie Smith completely off her feet. Literally not figuratively. A hot lawyer/rancher is hard to resist but Sophie gives it her best shot in Against the Wall.

I was introduced to Rebecca Zanetti’s writing with The Dark Protectors, so when I read she was starting another project my interest was piqued.

One of the sexist beginnings to a book I have ever read. One minute city lawyer Sophie is in a deserted forest, the next she is on a horse with a sexy cowboy with only a second of warning.

I read this book a couple years ago and quickly devoured (and adored) the entire series. So, when I saw this book on amazon for $2.99, I didn't hesitate to one-click-buy the little bugger.

And it was almost as amazing as I remember, although not quite the five star I previously had it rat ...more
