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….
As I have said previously in my reviews of her books I love Harper Sloan, I have been an addict of her work from the very first time I picked up Axle and the more of her work I read the bigger my girl crush and addiction is. Kiss My Boots is the second in the Coming Home series and I loved it just as much if not more than the first.
We meet Quinn Davis in Lost Rider and I knew instantly I would love her character, she was fun, sexy, sassy, loyal, independent and wasn’t afraid to get her hands dirty! The fact that Quinn wasn’t a girly girl really endeared me to her, I’m a bit of a tomboy myself so reading about one was a refreshing change of pace from some of the fashionista’s I have read about lately. After suffering through her abandonment issues at the hands of her mother she struggles to trust people, throw in the fact that she had her heart broken at such a tender age and she has more or less closed herself off to the thought of love again.
Tate Montgomery has some “splainin to do, after spending every summer since he was 11 years old in Pine Oaks he has built a relationship with Quinn and when things end he leaves her behind with unanswered questions and his own broken heart. I wasn’t sure how I would feel about Tate before I started reading this book but I realised early on that he would steal my heart right along with Quinn’s.
You could tell these two had so much chemistry and unresolved feelings from the very beginning of this story. We learn through this book that things aren’t always what they seem to be and sometimes you have to sacralise the things you love for the greater good.
Kiss My Boots is a beautiful story about a couple getting their second chance at an epic love story despite the odds that were stacked against them. While there were a few similarities between this book and Lost Rider they were few and far between. I have adored this series so far and I’m excited to get my hands on Clay’s story as he is already an amazing character and I know he is just going to get better.
