Circle B Ranch, #7

????? ??? ????:
Early morning feedings, barn clean up, and chasing goats are Knox Bishop’s everyday routine. That changes when a bachelor auction brings him face to face with the world’s most forbidden fruit—his twin brother’s crush.
He shouldn’t tempt her, but the way her body reacts to his makes it too damn easy.
Hadleigh has known the Bishop twins all her life and they’ve never crossed the lines. That is until she fools around with Knox and learns he has a piercing south of the border. A piercing she very much enjoys licking.
She knows his main hobby consists of random weekend hookups, but she can’t get the taste of him off her mind.
Admitting what she feels wouldn’t be so difficult if Kane Bishop hadn’t just confessed his feelings for her too. Now she finds herself wedged between two brothers—one she could break and one who could break her.
**Claiming the Cowboy is a complete stand-alone and can be read without reading any of the other books or spin-off series, but if you prefer to read in order, start with Hitching the Cowboy as the characters and families do interconnect.**

I was excited to read this book – all the tension and hidden feelings between Knox, Hadleigh and Kane had me biting my nails for me to get my hands on this book. And it pains me to write this but this book didn’t do it for me.
The way Knox was handling the situation with awakening of his feelings for Hadleigh as he came to blows with his brother at the beginning of the story, was not a good look for him. He was a hothead, which I get but the whole situation could have been handled a lot better. It’s really frustrating for me because after they laid out all of their feelings I liked the story. I just wish the story started differently I guess.
But now let’s focus on the positive; when you look at it closely, they were perfect for each other. Both had sassy attitudes, were open to try new things and when they came to terms about their feelings it was a great read. But even all of this couldn’t take away the sour taste that the beginning of this story left me so it pains me to write this but this one is getting only 3*.
