Book Description:

Kate Burke is done making bad decisions. Thirty years old and belatedly determined to grow up, the successful travel writer and one-time party girl returns to work at the remote Ponderosa Pines Ranch to reassess her life.

Although her kitchen/cabin staff is lacking and the workload never relents, Kate’s main challenge is Shane Maddox, the ruggedly handsome and doggedly stubborn ranch foreman. Instantly at odds, they battle over everything from ceiling fans to bothersome bats—studiously ignoring the sparks they generate with each confrontation.

They can’t explain their explosive physical chemistry, but after a few frustrated weeks they can’t deny it either. Their solution? Just once. They’ll get past their inconvenient lust and move on.

Kate’s been trying to think with her head instead of her hormones, but is this just another bad decision in a lifetime of careless choices? Has she really changed at all?

Set in the striking and serene hills of southern Colorado, Julianna Keyes’ debut novel offers a sizzling and satisfying tale of unexpected chemistry and the power of second chances. Her characters will get under your skin and into your heart.
Just once may not be enough for you either.

My Review: 
Wow, this was such a great story and I am happy to have been introduced to it by Irresistible Reads Book Tours!

Kate is ready to turn her life around. After spending a little too much time partying and making one bad decision after another, she is ready to slow down and find a stable job that does not have her traveling around. She is determined to make a fresh new start as she starts her new job.  In comes Shane, who is the definition of my perfect man (LOL) but someone who is completely different than the men Kate has usually found herself attracted to. 

The attraction that develops between Shane and Kate is just pure electrifying and they both can feel it. They try to avoid it, but when enough is enough they decide to give it a go "JUST ONCE' with the hopes that the it will ease the tension between them. But is once ever enough? 

This book is filled with a amazing characters with great development! I enjoyed each moment of it and did not want it to end!
