Emma Monroe has returned to River Rock, Colorado, after the death of her grandmother. Now she’s inherited a farm full of abused animals and she’s working as a waitress at the local hotspot, Kinky Spurs. The last thing Emma wants in her life is a man, as she’s still recovering from a recent heartbreak. But when a sensual and powerful cowboy, Shep Blackshaw enters her life, Emma begins to want things she shouldn’t.

Shep knows sex shouldn’t be on his mind. He’s got a world of responsibility on his shoulders. He’s attempting to save his late father’s cattle ranch, Blackshaw Cattle Company, from foreclosure. But Emma’s heated reactions to his touch make ignoring her impossible. She’s the perfect distraction to make him forget that his father’s company is a sinking ship.

While their nights only heat up, soon emotions become tangled into the mix. Shep’s not only giving Emma the hottest nights of her life, he’s also healing her heart. With every encounter, she forgets her heartbreak. With every naughty adventure, she stops mourning the life she left behind. And with every dirty word whispered from Shep’s mouth, she stops thinking of all the reasons why she shouldn’t fall for him. But when the past comes to claim Emma, she’ll need to choose between the life she thought she wanted and the life she’s grown to love with Shep. How will she say no to forever with a dirty-talking cowboy.

[I recieved an arc from Netgalley for an honest review]

 “Do you melt the way you did for me with every man who touches you?”

Dirty Talking Cowboy was an overall good romance read. I enjoyed Emma’s character and really loved how relatable she was. The author perfectly captures the feelings and thoughts someone goes through when faces with overcoming a past love that just wasn’t meant to be. I have been through before and holy crap she captured those feelings inadequate and confusion perfectly. Emma was real and I appreciated that. Shep was sexy, strong and a complete alpha male. I love alpha males who are intense and domineering in the bedroom but for some reason I felt like his extra Kink didn’t really fit him. I have read and loved some intense BDSM books and I know everyone has their own things sexually but it just the one scene where they explored a bit into Sheps kinks just felt forced. His alpha male personality fit with the novel just fine but I felt the author tried to do something more with it that didn’t necessarily work well with this story. Besides that one scene, which you’ll know if you read the book, the sex between Emma and Shep was hot and intense and written well. The relationship between them is a bit inst lovey but their chemistry is off the charts and as Sheps mom says “Their heart. When they know, they know.”

Dirty-Talking Cowboy by Stacy Kennedy is a strong start to a romance series. I am looking forward to reading about the other Blackshaw brothers getting their happily ever afters.
