If only Callie can keep her crush silent.
Finn O’Donnell can’t believe that the war raging between the ranchers could be as serious as the Hatfields and McCoys, but he soon learns that he’s quite mistaken. Luckily for Finn Callie has just arrived and she’ll protect him from the prowling women. If she doesn’t wind up the object of their war when the feuding clans actually see where Finn’s eyes are glued!
What I liked: Cowboy Boots For Christmas was really fun! I REALLY enjoyed Joe the most. All of the characters were fun and well developed. We’ve also got a great set of characters prepped for the series.
I think my favorite part of this book is how close Callie and Finn are. They barely need to even glance at each other to know what the other is thinking and yet they’re both afraid of committing to the other. It was sweet.
What I didn’t like: There is quite a bit of foul language in this book.
“Callie, wake up.” Finn shook her shoulder. “It’s a nightmare.”
Her eyes flew open and scanned the area. She touched her head and then her arms.
“You’re on my ranch in Salt Draw.” He pulled her up to the sitting position and shifted her into his lap. She was sweating bullets and shivering at the same time. He knew exactly what she’d been dreaming because he’d had the same nightmare too many times to count.
“Finn, I’m not going to die, am I?” she whispered.
“You are not hit. It was a bad dream.”
“It was so real,” she said.
He kissed her on the forehead and held her tighter. “I know. It was probably brought on by all the noise of the evening with the firecrackers and the stampede. I didn’t want to go to sleep either.”
“I hate this feeling. My insides are quivering and my heart is still racing.”
“Just be still and watch the flames in the fireplace. That always helps me. That’s why I chose the room I did.”
“Hold me for a little while longer,” she said.
“As long as you need me, Callie. I’m right here.”
