Cole Jackson and Kyle Harding haven’t got any doubts that Hailey Mathews is up to something, but they ain’t worried. They have their own wicked intentions and the full confidence that one little woman doesn’t stand a chance against two Cattlemen.
Hailey has had enough. Enough of Kyle and his smooth charm. Enough of Cole and his provocations. Not about to trust that either Cattleman has any interest in her other than playing a game, Hailey decides it’s time to show them how it’s done.
However, if things don’t go the way Hailey plans, the consequences might be more than she can pay.
Take two arrogant, self assured, sexy cowboys and throw in one independent spitfire of a woman and its GAME ON!
Have you ever read a book that had you so drawn in on page 1 that you were reading page 401 before you even realized it? If that’s your idea of great story you are going to love Jenny Penn’s second installment in the Cattlemen’s Club series, Hailey’s Game.
I’m not sure what they grow in South Alabama but whatever they’re feeding the men of Pittsview makes them ALPHA male to the max! Take for instance Kyle Harding and Cole Jackson. Kyle is, and has been, in love with Hailey Matthews since high school. He’s patient, considerate and determined in his pursuit of her. Unfortunately for Kyle, his main competition and biggest threat just happens to be his “wing-man” and best friend Cole.
Cole is charm magnified by 10! He also tends to speak before he thinks. Even though he wears arrogance like a mantle, I was drawn to Cole because it was obvious that his attitude was an attempt to mask some deep seated hurt. I won’t say more than that…you’ll have to read the book to hear Cole’s story and see how Hailey goes from being his nemesis to his life savior!
Both men have their work cut out for them when they set their sites on taming Hailey. I have to tell you, Hailey is so neurotic she made me laugh and want to shoot her with a tranquilizer dart all at the same time. Bless her heart, but you know that says something for a story when the reader becomes emotionally invested in the story.
Ms. Penn knows how to create characters that are so different and engaging from one story to the next you aren’t left with that dreaded “I’ve read this story” or “I’ve met these people” somewhere else feeling. I can only imagine the difficulty an author has in creating fresh hero and heroines especially in a series set in the same town. Ms. Penn does it well and consistently.
I didn’t write my review of Hailey’s Game immediately after reading it like a good little reviewer probably should. There is so much to this book that I actually re-read it before writing. Yep, all 423 pages as well as picking up copies of Patton’s Way and Rachel’s Seduction just to get a better feel for what all was going on in Pittsview – at the same time! That was a fun discovery, realizing that all three stories coincide to make for one very exciting summer in South Alabama.
Pick up a copy of Hailey’s Game and prepare yourself to be drawn into the powerfully wicked world of the Cattlemen’s Club. Where the men are men and the women play to win!
