"One Sweet Ride...
Oh yeah. A single look at the leggy blonde in the stands and Tucker Jenkins is ready to buck all night long. It's time to forget all about his cheating ex and his usual hands off policy.
One Hot Night...
Becca Hart is an East Coast professor. Not a buckle bunny. But no degree can prepare her for the moves of the sexy bull rider she hooks up with at her first rodeo...or the shock of finding him at her first Oklahoma State University staff meeting.
One Happy Ending...
Tuck knows it's all about holding on, no matter how wild the ride. Now he just has to convince Becca that a rough start out of the chute doesn't mean they aren't a smokin' combination..." ~ From Goodreads
After being let go of her Vassar professorship Becca lands an interview in Oklahoma due to her sister's medling, now while spending one night in the city she also decides to let her hair down and erase her bastard of an ex out of her mind with one night with a bull riding cowboy. But when she accepts the job and find outs her Cowboy is now a co-worker it spell trouble.
I have always loved Cat Johnson's writing, her plots are just fast pace enough so the focus is always squarely on the sizzling romance, the dialogue is fresh and realistic and the characters have both depth and wit and a sexy adventurous side - like honey bear scene... sure gives you ideas! ;) Now the reason I dropped one star of this rating was the phone calls from Becca's sister, they were repeating what was previously covered and it caused me to skip pages.
I absolutely loved Tuck, a bull riding cowboy with spectacular sexual stamina, not to mention a hot soldier, seriously who wouldn't tap that? ;) But he also had that protective side that brought in the romance and the warm and fluffies. I did have one altercation as Tuck was going to a war zone just to save Becca's job, there was dome yelling, I kid you not.
Becca was well over shadowed by Tuck's character, or maybe it was those long phone calls for me, but we got along good regardless. Becca was endearing, sweet but sure came alive around Tucker. There was also a good set of really good supporting characters like Logan, Jace and Emma which are all getting their own chance at love in other Oklahoma Nights novels. Can't wait!
In closing, One Night With A Cowboy is a more slow pace Cat Johnson ride that picks up at the end. So if you enjoy opposits attract love stories with hot cowboys ( just see the cover again ) turn army hottie with lots or creative boots knocking then this is for you!
