*Review* Kickin’ Up Dust by Em Petrova

Kickin’ Up Dust (Operation Cowboy Book 1) by Em Petrova


This Marine follows the rules. This cowgirl is all about breaking them.

Operation Cowboy, Book 1

After losing his best friend and CO, Matt, in combat, Brodie Bell didn’t think his spirits could sink any lower. He was wrong. One look at his and Matt’s storm-flattened hometown nearly levels him.

Los Vista needs a leader, and as Brodie takes the weight of the world on his shoulders, he comes up with a plan. Merge the two ranches left standing, pray for a good calving season…and keep his hands too busy to get busy with Matt’s sexy little sister.

Danica was in pigtails when Brodie and Matt went off chasing glory. Now she’s a woman with a broken heart, but if Matt knew of the depraved cravings Brodie ignites in her body, he’d haunt her from the grave.

As they work to mend miles of broken fences, Brodie fights to ignore Danica’s tiny cutoff shorts and mile-long legs—and to ignore the “weapon” that’s locked and loaded in his Levis. Because the last thing he wants is to dishonor his friend’s memory by ravishing the sweetest little cowgirl he’s ever laid eyes on.

Warning: Involves a sweet and sassy ranch girl who knows her way around a rope, and a Marine turned cowboy who’d like to tie her down and spank her until she begs for more.

I can literally say nothing bad about this book…at all. First, I loved Brodie Bell. He was, quite frankly, a good ol’ boy who had one dream, and that was returning home to work on his families ranch. After leaving the military behind, he, along with his 3 friends return home. Only, home no longer looks the same due to a massive tornado that has literally destroyed everything. Not only that, he’s also the one who has to go to his childhood friend’s home and deliver his belongings. He’s struggling with some PTSD as well and just wants to do the right thing for everyone.

When he see’s Matt’s little sister, well, he’s ill preparerd on how to stay away. Because bascially, as soon as these two were reuinted it was a forgone conclusion that they belong together. Brodie, however, seem’s to think it’s wrong since she’s his friend’s little sister and well Danica thinks that’s just a bunch a BS. I loved the chemestry between these two and this was a super sexy read!! I can’t wait for the next in this series!!
