In her sizzling new series, USA Today best-selling author Kristen Proby sets the stage for a passionate reunion under the breathtaking Montana sky.
Cara Donovan's summer tutoring job is turning out to be a challenge - and not just because of her troubled 12-year-old student. It's his uncle Josh who's the real problem. If problem is the word for an irresistibly cocky, muscle-bound rancher with a taste for tight Levi's and shameless flirtation.…
Cara is nothing like the wallflower Josh King remembers good-naturedly teasing in high school. This Cara is gorgeous, confident, fun. From the moment the fiery teacher steps foot on his family's Lazy K Ranch, the stubborn playboy is determined to corral her. So what happens when his luscious lover takes over the reins?
The first in a steamy trilogy, Kristen Proby's enthralling novel is filled to the brim with one hardworking family's triumphs and challenges, all the wild adventure of the modern West, and a whole lot of titillating fun.

Boring and a real struggle to finish
So absolutely and completely dull. Boring and uninspiring female lead falls in love with average male lead (..who isn’t ‘alpha’ - yes he’s possessive, but in an insecure way, not a manly, hot caveman way).
I listened to the first half and couldn’t stand to finish it, then months later I decided to try again as I hate to not finish a book - eughh.. really shouldn’t have bothered. Waste of my life.
I have listened to hundreds of books and this is at the bottom of the pile in terms of how good it is. People who think it’s ‘sweet’ or ‘romantic’ really should try some other books as there are many that are a million times better. Kristen Ashley, for example, really develops relationships in her books.
The narration was poor too and made the book seem even more boring than it might have been with another narrator. Their voices sound ok to begin with, but then you realise it’s boring people reading a boring book.
I reallllllllly need to dig out a book that gives you the tummy squiggles and heart blooming surges that a romantic book should. This is not it.

The Montana guys are my current favorites
Listen to Cara, Lauren, and for the Holidays Grace (Baby it's cold outside, starts at chapter 16) over and over! I can't wait for January 27th for Jillian's story. I was sad to find out there will only be three books in the series but excited that Kristen Proby going South for her new adventure. Until then I'll be " satisfied" with the North Western folks. I didn't think Kristen Proby could ever top the Seattle stories but then she melted quite a bit of snow in Montana. I'll have to see if she can bring the spices of New Orleans to the pages of her next region.

WOW Supper Hot Josh & Horses ! Oh Yes Yes Yes :)
Any additional comments?
Loving Cara is the first book in author Kristen Proby’s newest series, Under the Big Sky and talk about one hell of a debut. I loved everything about the book from start to finish.
Cara Donovan and Josh King have known each other for years. They went to high school together and still live in the same small town but despite the geography, they really don’t see much of each other. That all changes when Cara gets a job tutoring Josh’s nephew over the summer. Seth’s mother drops him off at the King’s family ranch and leaves without so much as a backward glance. Zach, Josh’s brother and Seth’s father, is in the Army and overseas for at least another month which means Seth was now Josh and his parents responsibility. No problem, right? Wrong. Seth needs a whole lot of love and attention to bring him out of the anger he’s settled into. He also needs whole lot of help in the schooling department which is where Cara comes in and ends up as Seth’s tutor. Luckily Cara is up for the challenge. Of course that means Cara and Josh will be spending a whole lot of time together and soon the attraction they both feel is too much to deny. Josh can’t believe his high school friend has grown into such a beautiful and smart woman and Cara is in awe of the handsome, sexy, and caring Josh. Sparks will fly and lust will ignite all while helping a young man learn to trust and love again. Will they all get their happy ending?
Man, I devoured this book. In less than a day. Cara and Josh have some serious heat building from the very beginning and it slowly builds at a delicious pace until they both decide to take the next step and holy hell. These two are HOT together! But beyond that, Cara and Josh come together to help Seth, and that’s where they shine. Where Josh is stern, Cara balances him out with a softer side and Seth stands to learn a lot from both of them. Of course there are a few bumps in the road for Cara and Josh, which makes it more emotional and intense and that much better. Along the way we meet Cara’s best friend Jillian, Jillian’s brother Ty, and at the end, Zach, Seth’s dad. All of them are fabulous, complex characters and I suspect we will be seeing more of them in this series and I can’t WAIT!
If you’re looking for a romance with serious heat, loads of emotions and a small town feel, this is the book for you! Thank you, Kristen, for a fantastic book and a series I look forward to continuing!
