on the investigation and get her parents to let her or at least accept her to continue a relationship with PorterThis was an enjoyable and short book it only took me a couple hours to read because I just could nt put it down I loved the characters I loved how family This was an intriguing novel Thomas captured my attention with the variety of different components in the story Mystery and romance combine in a natural manner becoming part of the lives of the characters I definitely felt for Porter He s a really good guy just trying to find his way Contrasted with Wendy who finds herself stuck between a rock and a hard place ou have a winning pair of main characters I will admit that there were times throughout where they both annoyed me a little I wanted to tell them both to grow up and stand on their own Falling Through Clouds yet at the same time I fully understood where they were coming from Thomas developed them in such a way thatou couldn t fail to understand them As a whole I uite enjoyed this novel It was a sweet read with that hint of something It wasn t my first novel by Thomas nor will it be my last Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review Fantastic conclusion to the Cash Brothers series I m sad to see it end but so happy to see all six brothers find their true loves Porter is the last Cash brother left unmarried He s always been the one least likely to settle down He likes the ladies and has been known to move from job to job as he gets tired of them But he s been dissatisfied with life lately He sees how happy his brothers are and is a bit envious He s got a dream of his own to have his own ranch to raise bucking horses for rodeos To do that he needs a steady job to earn the money for the land he has his eye on He s gotten a job transporting rodeo animals but wonders if that job is in jeopardy when insurance adjuster Wendy Chin joins him on his latest tripWendy is a hardworking woman whose life is centered on her work and her family She s been raised by strict traditional Chinese parents but she longs for a life with a little fun in it She s aware of Porter s reputation since she s been friends with his sister for a long time When he dares her to let loose and have a little fun she can t resist the challenge She doesn t expect the attraction that comes along with the fun She s not happy about it because there s no way it can go anywhere She knows that there s no way her parents would ever accept him The time they spend together the deeper her feelings grow for himI loved seeing Porter and Wendy together They are a terrific balance for each other though both have some issues they have to overcome Porter feels somewhat self conscious around Wendy because he never went to college and doesn t exactly have a successful career going on He also has some trust issues stemming from a relationship a few ears earlier when the woman had used him to make another man jealous He has the occasional worry that Wendy is using him for her job But his feelings for her overpower most of his doubts I loved seeing him introduce her to darts and karaoke I really liked the way that he was determined to prove himself to her parents and show them that he was worthy of Wendy I got really frustrated with his brothers and sister when they were ragging on him about his many jobs and women without noticing that he had changedI really felt bad for Wendy with the situation she was in She s a modern American woman with a great job who is smart and pretty and longs for a chance to have a normal life But she was raised to respect her parents their values and traditions After a disastrous relationship in college she doesn t trust her own judgment so has been going along with her parents choices for her dates The problem is that none of those nice successful Chinese men have done a thing for her Porter is the one her heart has chosen She really wants to respect her parents wishes but the idea of giv. Roughstock to rodeos What he doesn't need is a too serious too smart and too sexy for her own good copilot on the trip When savvy insurance adjuster Wendy Chin joins Porter for the haul she is all work and no play But soon busi.

Ing up her happiness to do so is breaking her heart I was really rooting for her to stand up to themI enjoyed the secondary story of the investigation into why Porter s boss had had several of his bulls disappear while being transported It added a little bit of suspense and action to the story There was also an interesting twist involving the identity of Porter s father that made a great addition to the bookThe ending was sweet and funny as Wendy s parents were treated to a parade of people pleading Porter s case I loved Wendy s reaction and what she did afterward The epilogue was a very satisfying wrap up Compliments will get ou nowhere What about kissesKisses will get ou far very far she murmuredAwwwwwwww Kissing This book ended up being so cute and satisfyingPorter Cash is a bucking bronco riding gadabout Or at least that s what everyone thinks of him Only interested in having a good time never settling for one woman one job or one place But actually he s held down a driving job for months and is saving money to buy a ranch where he can breed rodeo stockWendy Chin is a smart career woman with tailored suits and long work days Her Chinese American parents have seen to it that she go far in the corporate world She is still living with them in a duplex and they are very overprotective and very determined that she marry a Chinese man of their choosing But Wendy wants nothing to do with the boring ambitious executives that her father keeps setting her up withWhen Wendy is assigned to do a drive alone with Porter both are nervous about how the drive might go and neither one expects the sparks that fly between themI liked this book because Thomas actually made a stab at character development here Porter is pegged by everyone as a no good layabout And this reputation cripples him when he actually tries to settle down He has a big family and they all think they know him when really they are pigeonholing him in a roleWendy has the huge struggle of dealing with her parents They are absolutely suffocating It s almost impossible for her to stand up to them because she loves them and doesn t want to be disrespectful of themI have to admit that I am a big fan of books where a hero or heroine has to stand up to their parents for whatever reason and break free to live an independent life I really always enjoy that kind of storyline It was heartrending to see Porter and Wendy be really in love with each other but unable to be together because of her parents stubbornness But Porter is so goshdarn persistent and I really liked how he was determined to fight for Wendy no matter the obstacles in their wayThe book was also extremely romantic and cute When Porter says But Wendy had loosened up and the sparkle of her brown eyes had triggered a few fantasies I was bracing myself for something sexual but riding horses in the mountains together taking a walk through the pecan groves the two of them sitting on the front seat of his truck listening to a Luke Bryan CDAwwwwww That s so cute Another issue that this book deals with is interracial dating I liked this I know so many interracial couples in real life and they are not often reflected in the media And Thomas is pretty matter of fact and straightforward about some challenges that interracial dating might bring That being said the book wasn t perfect I was a bit afraid at the beginning that I was going to be mired in Asian woman fetishizing The first two chapters are full of almond eyes and diminutiveness delicate skin and small breasts and I was like Oh gosh I m going to hate this book Luckily Thomas cuts that shit out and Wendy becomes a very human and fleshed out character in her own right And Thomas was great at pulling on the heartstrings I was genuinely upset when Wendy and Porter were driven apart If I am feeling sad about the characters not being together ou know it s a good romance I cared about the characters and liked them Did she know his dream had changed What good would it do to own a ranch if he didn t have Wendy to share it with He d rather work a ten hour shift seven days a week on an assembly line if it allowed him to come home to Wendy at the end of the dayI really liked what Thomas said about laid back men Even with all the pressures of her job and her boss counting on her to help solve the case of the missing bulls her stress levels decreased in Porter s presenceWhen she reflected back on the men her father had set her up with men with serious drive and lofty career aspirations she d never felt at ease in their company even though she d had a lot in common with them than with PorterThis is exactly why I date chill men Type A men make me nervous and stressed outAnother plus was that Wendy speaks Spanish and instead of writing any dialogue in Spanish and butchering it Thomas just does Wendy talked to the waitress in Spanish or whatever leaving actual Spanish out of it This is a good and smart decision and one I appreciate a lotHow s the sex CarmenNah The kissing and sex isn t very described I wouldn t get to excited This is Harleuin s American Romance line after all If ou want good steamy sex I d recommend Blaze or perhaps Historical I wish the sex and kissing had been descriptive this could have potentially been a five star romance for me but oh wellOh and there was this gut busting line He popped off the bed hair rumpled from her fingers mouth red from their kisses and removed his clothes offering Wendy a full frontal view of his cowboy awesomenessReally Cowboy awesomeness Is that what they re calling it now LOL DTl dr A surprisingly cute and exciting romance from Harleuin s American Romance line I was pleasantly shockedTHREE REAL STARS FOUR ROMANCE STARS With hotter sex this would have been a five star romance. Ness turns to pleasure and Wendy is conflicted Her heart wants Porter but her strict Chinese American parents will never support the match Can Porter find a way to prove to Wendy that when it comes to love he's not fooling aroun.
