Brenda has been through enough relationship drama. After her husband was caught cheating at their wedding, she decides it's time to start over. Brenda leaves her fast-paced city life behind to start over on a ranch in east Texas.

Part of her fresh start comes in the form of ranch hand Billy Joe Watkins. Brenda's taken with his gentlemanly, handsome ways. When she meets his good friend and fellow ranch hand, Salvador Rivas, the next day, sparks fly with his overly seductive nature.

Both admit to being ladies men, but claim their attraction and feelings for Brenda are sincere. They say they will do whatever it takes to prove to her they're in it for the long haul. Can Billy and Sal be trusted? More importantly, can Brenda learn to love again so quickly and easily?

This was an interesting story, and one that pulled me in from the word go. Of the three main characters we get to know Brenda first as she tries to get past the blow dealt by her jerk of a two timing husband who got caught with another woman at the wedding reception. On the advice of her best friend Jasmine, the heroine of the first book in the Sensual Awakenings series, Brenda decides to make a fresh start and moves back to the ranch to take on Jasmine's former job. It's a journey she needs to take to find herself as well as her self confidence.

Along the way Brenda meets two hot sexy and sizzling cowboys; Billy Joe and Sal. Both of these men are firmly attracted to Brenda, but are aware that she is getting over issues from her previous relationship. They're willing to wait for her and to work for her. Just what a woman unsure of her appeal needs: two men willing to meet her needs. Once these three characters get together the story explodes and never stops.

The reader plunges head first into this story and it does not let go until the end. The dialogue is fast-paced from the beginning. This is a book I highly recommend you read. I just can't wait to go back and read the first book, as well as any new additions that may come along.
