in the process of reading ALL her books, presently on 24 of 134 and Maisey Yates, incredibly prolific both Do their books blend together and I don t remember hide nor hair of any particular one Absolutely And yet, I can t quit them Neels and Yates, unlike in every way, share a deep, profound, abiding theme no matter how chaste the Neels romance or carnal the Yates, the connection between hero and heroine is mystical, inevitable, and sacred They are meant for each other their bodies know this before reason accepts and acknowledges Love is a realization arriving in an epiphanic moment In Neels, the heroine believes the hero couldn t possibly love her undeserving self, but she loves him the hero, older, wiser, andknowing, knows from their introduction the heroine will be his wife In Yates, love is an agon, a passion, a difficult birth, many layers of ego, hurt, and lack of faith and hope must be divested for a character,often than not the hero, to admit his love and need for the heroine Once he does, however, his devotion, love, and protection are his sole purpose The Neels and Yates worlds One quieter, on the surfaceconservative the other, created out of the passions of the flesh and a tender antagonism Yates s latest, Need Me, Cowboy Copper Ridge 8 is exemplary of the Yatesian romance ethos Levi Tucker is released from jail, exonerated of murdering his scheming wife While he suffered through the hell of prison, grew soul hardened and fought daily for survival, she enjoyed his wealth on the Riviera He returns to Copper Ridge bent on revenge What better revenge than to show the world his wealth, power, and rub it in his ex wife s face The first step is to build himself a grand house to look down on the town that looked down on him He hires Faith Grayson, proteg architect to design his new home The rest is Yates history Faith and Levi spar verbally Faith breaks free of expectations to reach for the dangerous ex con Levi sets an end to their affair with the completion of the house plans Levi and Faith are lovers, but their connection goes deeper and farther than the bedroom They grow close and intimate Theirs is not a terribly talky romance, but a connection borne of deep sympathy and understanding But Levi s self hatred and sense of unworthiness reject Faith s love Until he doesn t Because he has to see the light of hope, faith, and love and let go of hatred and revenge Waiting at the end of it is Faith.I couldn t help but think of Yates s Need Me, Cowboy as romance allegory for the redemption of the lost man, the lost soul There s a beautiful scene where Levi and Faith ride Levi s horses in the rain Levi strips off his shirt and lets the rain wash off the ugliness of prison Still, Levi has to grapple with what it means to be free echoing the final stanza of Lovelace s To Althea, From Prison, Levi can love only when he gives up revenge, hatred, and hardness Faith, as her name indicates, must be embraced, claimed, kept, and protected I ve made it sound as if the heroine has no say, no will, but Yates knows the genre too well not to portray how Faith must break out of her own prison of perfection, her safety net of family, talent, and career, to risk her heart for the dangerous, difficult Levi The Yatesian lesson love is worth it, the risk, hurt, loss of self And because it s romance, Levi, like a caged bird set free, returns and stays with Faith.A reader not enamoured of the Yatesian ethos may not enjoy Need Me, Cowboy The romance is mystically enacted the connection between hero and heroine doesn t grow organically If that s what you look for in a romance, you won t find it here Yates tends to a romance shorthand of revelation and confession the hero and heroine realize their love, run to or from it, and confess or deny until they don t Yates is an epiphanic romance writer love comes as a road to Damascus blow, wings beating around hero and heroine with declarations written on waving white banners I was happy to dwell in Yates s world and will be again With Miss Austen, we say Need Me, Cowboy offers real comfort, Emma.Maisey Yates s Need Me, Cowboy is published by Harlequin Books It was released on April 2nd and may be found at your preferred vendor I received an e ARC from Harlequin Books, via Netgalley Because I love it, I m quoting the final stanza of Lovelace s To Althea, From Prison Stone walls do not a prison make, Nor iron bars a cage Minds innocent and quiet take That for an hermitage If I have freedom in my love, And in my soul am free, Angels alone, that soar above, Enjoy such liberty

    3.5 stars I m always in for whatever Maisey writes, but I ve really been enjoying this series I really liked Faith and Levi She s sweet and he s gruff and they re both trying to prove something I enjoyed reading how they slowly discovered their similarities The chemistry was great and I was thrilled to see that there were actually some somewhat meaningful conversations Plot wise, it was fast moving since this is a shorter story Of course I would have liked it to be a bitfleshed out, 3.5 stars I m always in for whatever Maisey writes, but I ve really been enjoying this series I really liked Faith and Levi She s sweet and he s gruff and they re both trying to prove something I enjoyed reading how they slowly discovered their similarities The chemistry was great and I was thrilled to see that there were actually some somewhat meaningful conversations Plot wise, it was fast moving since this is a shorter story Of course I would have liked it to be a bitfleshed out, but the time seemed to go at a pace that made sense The last couple of chapters were especially good once Faith really started standing up for herself and the epilogue was sweet and satisfying Overall, it was a quick read and another delightful addition to the series Huge thanks to Harlequin Desire for providing the arc free of charge

    Levi lost five years of his life in prison because his wife was a one heck of a selfish witch However, he had a plan to show the world that he may have been down, but don t count him outyet Hiring Faith to build him the biggest house was just the first step of many Falling for Faith, however, was never part of the plan Faith was really sweet More brainy then feels, she understood logic and numbers and wasn t prepared for the storm of feelings Levi brought out in her I had a lot of fun se Levi lost five years of his life in prison because his wife was a one heck of a selfish witch However, he had a plan to show the world that he may have been down, but don t count him outyet Hiring Faith to build him the biggest house was just the first step of many Falling for Faith, however, was never part of the plan Faith was really sweet More brainy then feels, she understood logic and numbers and wasn t prepared for the storm of feelings Levi brought out in her I had a lot of fun seeing Faith learn about herself and had a blast watching her unintentionally tempt Levi It was like watching the devil and angel on her shoulder duking it out with interesting results The romance was quick and pretty hot Even though it was supposed to be temporary, nothing ever goes as planned Levi was a tough guy who said one thing but his actions showed another He really had a tough time with the age gap too, causing some rather silly arguments against getting involved with Faith But Faith gave as good as she got, leading to spectacular fireworks I ve come to really enjoy Yates characters Whether it s a full novel or a Harlequin story like this book, I ve come to love the quirky and unique personalities And the romances They have so many levels of emotion, I never know what to expect Book 6 in the Copper Ridge Desire series, Need Me, Cowboy easily read as a stand alone Other characters were mentioned with just enough background that I didn t feel lost at all I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book All thoughts and opinions are my own

    The only thing I remember about this book is the hero thinking about the heroine sucking on his penis
