Rough and Ready by Vanessa Vale is now live! + My Review

Rough and Ready by Vanessa Vale is now live!

When a rough-edged bad boy takes on a straight-laced college professor, can they both win the fight of their life?

Reed Johnson grew up on the streets rough and ready with his fists to survive. These days, all his fighting now is done in the ring. With The Outlaw as his coach, he’s way more than a cowboy. That was enough for him, until he meets his new neighbor.

Harper Lane’s running from a dangerous past, but no matter how hard she tries, it follows. This time, she’s not alone. She runs right into the arms of Reed. She’s his now. His to protect. His to save. To do so, he’ll have to return to the life he’s left behind. But the brainy PhD is worth the fight and with her, he’ll be ready for anything. Even something he never thought he deserved. Love.

Intense danger & steamy romance. I liked Reed with his alpha protectiveness and big muscles. MMA hunky fighter and defender of new neighbor, Harper. She’s a professor with a family problem. Well, more like major family drama and a brother that will do anything to save himself. That puts Harper in the sights of a bad guy and his henchmen. I liked that Harper was in charge of her sexuality and her fighting spirit. She didn’t do the easy thing and give in to her family. The romance is kind of insta with Reed enamored immediately. Harper has some destructive sexual habits to help her deal and Reed offers an alternative that turns into a sizzling romance. Not much surprising in the plot or the romance. Not sure why there’s a cowboy theme. The only cowboy element is Reed’s trainer and friend Gray. Good friendship between the story with the MMA guys, and Harper and Emory. Quick, easy read with likable characters along with suspenseful danger.
