Romance Book Review: Brooke Leah's Dakota Ranch Crude
Author: Leah Brooke
This is an old book on my book list, however it can still be purchased as an anthology with Her Dakota Men from Amazon called Dakota Heat Volume 1.
In Dakota Ranch Crude, Sam is always helping her brother get out of trouble but he has finally found trouble that she might not be able to get out of by herself and maybe she doesn't want to. This time the trouble has landed her right smack in the middle of brothers Shayne and Jackson. Jackson is a sweet talking romeo who all the girls in town are after, but once he sets eyes on Sam he knows that she is the perfect woman for he and his rough brother Shayne to share. Shayne falls completely for Sam, but he's worried that he can't be the man she wants. He's nothing like his good looking brother. With the brothers' help Sam gets her brother out of trouble and she just might find the men she's always dreamed of for herself.
Definitely this is a book to check out if you like erotic romance. All the characters are likable and real. At six foot eight, Shayne has a lot of insecurities about being with a woman and not hurting her and Sam and his brother Jackson give him the helping hand he needs.
In Her Dakota Men, Stacy Daniels left the ranch she loved 15 years ago. Not being able to cope with her abusive father, she'd stayed away as much as possible. Infrequent visits to the ranch to visit those she loved caused her heartache, but she couldn't stay away. Wolfe, Travis and Cash Dakota, the foreman's three sons, lived and worked on the ranch and she'd loved them forever. Realizing the futility of loving all three, she carefully kept her love for them hidden as guilt consumed her. She wanted more than anything to stay on the ranch she loves so much with the only real family she's ever known. But if she gives in, loving all three of them the way she does, she'll ruin everything. Not wanting to cause anyone pain, she has no choice but to flee. Wolfe, Travis and Cash Dakota have other plans for her and won't let her go. They've waited for years to be Her Dakota Men.
Dakota Ranch Crude Description:

Her brother's employers, Shayne and Jackson Montgomery, are not what she expected. Jackson, the younger brother is too handsome and charming to resist, especially when he sets his sights on her. He wants her to share her life with not only him, but his older brother, Shayne.
She realizes that the only way is to show Shayne he's not the crude animal he's become convinced he is.
Shayne is hard headed and won't believe it, convinced that he would only hurt her. Can Samantha convince this tender giant that he and his brother are perfect for her?
