This time I picked: 

Just Because

This SMOKING HOT book popped up on my Facebook feed and it caught my eye! It's a new ebook novella and purchases go for a great cause 

I also just featured this on my Sexy Sunday post. 

It’ll take a wild storm for the princess of Buckhorn, Kentucky, to catch the new sheriff’s eye—and heart—in this scorching new Buckhorn novella…

Kady Kaspar’s sights have been set on Tucker Turley for far too long—and she’s tired of waiting for Buckhorn’s handsome sheriff to notice her. When a heavy storm brings them together, it’s about time to test the waters and see if the intense attraction she feels goes both ways. Because if it does, he’s about to learn how stubborn she can be…

Of all the things Tucker expected to deal with when the rain started to pour, a litter of stranded puppies and spitfire Kady, who’s determined to seduce him, sure didn’t make the list. Yet there he is, bachelor pad overflowing with furballs and Kady in his bedroom. He’s wanted her for years, but given her family’s prestige, he needs to know that she’s serious before he makes any further moves…but will his caution cost him everything?

I have not read a book by Ms Foster in a very long time. 

I know, shame shame. 

Especially since I kicked myself once I read Tucker, wondering why I let that happen. 

Yes, at least for me, Ms Foster's books all have a very common/similar feel to them- but that's a good thing. More like an old friend feel if that makes sense. 

And despite not having kept up with the Buckhorn series, I didn't feel like I really missed anything here- except, yeah, now I want to go and dig out all of the other books I own and get to 'em!  LOL

I found Tucker to be a nice way to spend my afternoon. It was well developed despite the light page count (about 80 pages).

It was also witty and steamy(but not too) and totally romantic. Plus it had puppies!
