Review and Contest: Midnight Ride


Midnight Ride Midnight Ride by Cat Johnson

4 out of 5 Licks

Midnight Cowboys #1

One bucking bronco…

Oklahoma ranch hand Tyler Jenkins is too young, too sexy, and too damn wild to be tied down by any single woman—for more than a few steamy hours…

One hard-working widow…

Widowed rancher Janie Smithwick is too busy paying off her debts to play rodeo with a reckless young cowboy like Tyler—no matter how hot he gets her… 

One midnight ride they’ll never forget…

As a rule, Janie should be dating a man her own age, like her handsome neighbor Rohn—not the twenty-four-year old ranch hand he employs. But once Tyler gets Janie alone—held tight in his arms, pressed against his hard muscled body, burning with desire—the widow realizes that some rules, like broncos, are meant to be broken…

I always enjoy Cat Johnson’s work.  She writes some seriously sexy cowboys and I never miss a chance to read her books so of course I jumped at the chance to read Midnight Ride.  The first meeting between Janie and Tyler was pretty amusing.  Tyler is young and seems like he’s been enjoying the ladies.  He didn’t really come across as a that big of a playboy to me, but apparently Janie has him pegged as one so she’s decided that she shouldn’t mess around with him.  Couple that with his age and she puts him firmly in the no category.  The book moved a little slow for me.  It took literally half the book for them to finally move forward toward a relationship and then she refused to go out in public with him.  It made me like her a little less.  I understand worrying about the age difference, but it felt like many times she didn’t care at all about how she was making him feel.  Eventually things do work themselves out and we get a happy ending.  All in all I still enjoyed the story.  The sex between these two is pretty spectacular too.  The definitely heat up the sheets.
