Book Review: Spurs and Lace with Bonnie Paulson

Spurs and Lace (Lonely Lace Series Book 1)
By Bonnie R. Paulson
Publisher: Captiva Publishing
Published: Jan. 30, 2014

This book is FREE on Amazon.

Amazon Synopsis:

Feuding with his houseguest’s brother and torn between worry and frustration over his twin, Slate MacCallister brings the rural doctor to his ranch in a record-breaking snow storm to save the boy Slate loves like a son. 

Dr. Becky O’Donald is a city girl stuck in Nowhereville, Montana trying to hack down her massive student loan debt. Thrown into a medical nightmare by MacCallister and certain there is more going on with the lonely, melancholy Amelia, Becky is taken aback by the boy mirroring her host down to the dimple in his cheek. 

Closeted on the sprawling ranch, surrounded by white, Becky fights the pull of the country life and the man exuding it. 

Certain he’s with Amelia, the boy is his, and he’s lying about having a brother, Becky denies her heart. But how long can she hold out against the man who rides to her rescue and kisses her knees weak?

My Thoughts:

I liked the feisty protagonist Dr. O’Donald in Spurs and Lace. Becky is not one to let anyone tell her what to do. But when it comes to the man with the beautiful body, she can’t make up her mind.

Slate MacCallister is very handsome and very troubled. Mac, the child he thinks the world of is deathly ill so he goes to town to get the doctor in the middle of one of the worst blizzards the town has had in a long time. He sees the doctor and it’s lust at first sight.

A variety of things push them together and pull them apart so that they never actually do anything more than kiss occasionally, but that sexual tension is there under the surface. The attraction is based mainly on sexual tension though and not on personality characteristics and love. Whether a relationship of this type would succeed is unknown.

One of the things that keeps coming up is Slate’s brother Robbie. He is supposed to be Amelia’s husband. We don’t see him all through the book. This book ends as a cliffhanger and is not resolved at the end. It does suggest that the reader will find out more about Robbie in the next book.

I gave Spurs and Lace 3 stars out of 5.

Thank you to the publishers for providing a copy of the book in exchange for a fair and honest review. A positive opinion was not required. All thoughts are my own.
