He’s the one who taught her to ride. Now all he wants is to ride her.

Six Pack Ranch, Book 1

Blake Coleman is old enough to know that acting on impulse causes nothing but a heap of trouble. But when trouble’s a western-hat-wearing blonde with slim legs that go on forever, what’s a man to do? Wanting the sweet girl next door is just wrong. The responsible thing to do is keep his hands off.

Jaxi has other plans for Blake’s hands, and his heart. She may have once considered him a big brother, but that was a long time ago. She’s all grown up now and ready to convince him that she’s perfect for him. Except he can’t seem to see past the big “don’t touch” sign that’s apparently still hanging around her neck.

When Jaxi ends up living right under Blake's nose, the undeniable heat between them slides off simmer and leaps up to barn-burning levels. However, a few of the younger six-pack Colemans have decided Jaxi’s brand of trouble is worth risking a few busted bones.

That is, if Blake’s finally ready to let go the reins and fight for what he wants…

Warning: Sexy cowboys seducing and being seduced in trucks, pool halls and barns. Droolworthy country charm, a little double-teaming, a few secrets and a whole lot of brothers to look forward to. Anyone wanna go for a ride?

I want to give a Big Thank you to Mariann at Belle’s Book Bag for having this series on her blog. I enjoyed and loved reading Rocky Mountain Heat that I had to buy the second book ASAP. Vivian Arend knows how to write about love, friendship with a sexy alpha male cowboy.

Right away I adored Blake in the prologue. Jaxi is dating his younger brother Travis and he is a snot nose brat to her. While they are away at a rodeo she gets sick but Travis rather stay and party with his friends. Blake is sweet as he is the one to take care of her and brings her home. He just got sweeter while taking her home by gently cover her with a blanket. Blake had no problem punching Travis and telling him what a jerk he is.

I loved Blake’s character as he is your brooding, sweet, dirty talker, bit jealous, Alpha Male hero. They are ten years apart and he started noticing Jaxi since she was 18 and he was 28. He feels like he has no right to admire her as she has been a big part of his family since she was little. He has been scared to be around her all these years for fear on how he would react. Now time has passed and she is no longer the 18 year old he as admired. Now she is older and turned out to be a beautiful woman which he avoids her and is broody when ever around her. All it takes is for his twin brothers to flirt with her while playing pool and now he is going to court and woo her so she can see the real him.

Jaxi comes from a small family, she is the only child and parents worked a lot. The Coleman family took her in and treated her like one of their own. She automatically fell in love with Blake’s big family. All she wanted since she was little is to be a ranchers wife, Blake’s wife. She will do what ever it takes to get Blake to finally notice her as a woman and not the little girl running around in pigtails. Even if she has to go with the twins idea to flirt with them to make Blake jealous and open up his eyes that he wants her.

Blake and Jaxi chemistry is sweet and steamy right from the beginning. Later on their chemistry is a scorcher. I loved every moment when they were together. Their sexual encounters definitely burned up my e-reader. Many favorite sex scenes but oh my the kitchen scene with the peaches and the dining room table scene had me putting my head in the freezer. Vivian Arend is a master at writing some scorching but tasteful sex scenes.

I loved all the secondary characters even the mom and dad. Vivian Arend did an amazing job at having all the secondary characters in one book that never took away from Blake and Jaxi story. They just added more fun to the book and all have their own personality. There are 6 yummy brothers Blake, Daniel, Matt, the twins (Jesse and Joel) and Travis. Jesse and Joel are my favorites and look forward to their story.
Vivian Arend, Rocky Mountain Heat and The Six Pack Ranch series is not be missed. I look forward to reading the rest of this series and highly recommend Rocky Mountain Heat. Blake and Jaxi story is perfect and keeper for me that I will re-read again and again. Vivian Arend is now on my favorite author list that I will buy anything she writes.
