Longhorns and lingerie... Much to the chagrin of foreman Josiah, Jessie Davidson wants a romance reduction. But the Double D Ranch hides a secret. Since inheriting the property, Jessie kept her grandmother’s hoard concealed, but now she’s found the courage to purge the unwanted items: steamy novels, thousands of them. Romance has to go! Donating the books is a good thing, right? Not when coupled with a dare. The dare spirals out of control. The ante is upped when caches of the spicy books, left in barber shops, pool halls, and pubs, challenge others to join the fad. A perverted prankster runs amok playing on the town’s fantasies. Book clubs are formed. Plots acted out. In a town saturated with romance, Jessie finds her love life underdeveloped. Keep Jessie safe. It’s the promise Josiah Barnes made to Jessie’s dying grandmother. He aims to honor it, even if it means protecting Jessie from himself. Failing her in the past has him on high alert when the Double D becomes ground zero for the arousal avalanche sweeping the town. As a full-support, silent partner, Josiah will do anything to augment the Double D. But when Jessie starts selling handmade lingerie, keeping his hands to himself is easier said than done… Will she shelve happily ever after like a rejected novel, or open her heart and start a new chapter?

First off I want to thank this fantastic author for the chance to read and review her book. It was great getting to meet you and I hope to see you again in the future.  Second, I have to say how amazing this book is. I loved the writing style and I laughed so hard reading this one. I started this book needing a pick me up and this was the perfect book to read. Don't get me wrong the story line/plot is perfection but the humor in this one made the story so much more. 

The other thing that I really enjoyed about this book was that I had no clue what was about to happen. Have you ever found that one book that really held your attention and didn't let go mainly because you wasn't sure what was going to happen, yeah this is one of those times for me. I needed to know what was going to happen next. So much so that I held this book while I cooked at one point and almost dropped it into my sauce. 

There is one thing that kept me from giving this book a full 5 puppies, I'm not of how many times the pov changed throughout each chapter. It's clearly marked but sometimes it's hard to keep up with. It didn't take too much away from the story for me though. Other than that, I loved this book. I really enjoyed reading Jessie's POV, mainly because I connected with her character. 

If you enjoy a great romantic comedy then this is the perfect book for you to read. 

I'm giving The Double D Ranch an Ali's Bookshelf...

Rochelle writes epic dreams. In her mind, they play like a movie with a cast of fun-loving, big-hearted people in a small-town setting.

Born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, Rochelle developed a love of nature, art and traveling. Snowbird grandparents first introduced her to Texas when she was a child. Her fondness for the state grew over the years. In college, she flip-flopped between interior decorating and creative writing. Alas, she chose decorating. She worked as a certified professional bra fitter through college and accumulated many interesting stories and a box full of goodies for her soon-to-be Prince.

She made the long migration to Dayton, Ohio after marrying. Taking an early retirement as a decorator, she accepted the full-time position of mother.

In 2008, when her youngest entered Kindergarten, she decided to get the stories out of her head. Midway through her first novel, hurricane Ike (yes, a hurricane in Ohio) rendered the laptop useless with a nine-day power outage. She didn't give up, but continued to pursue her dream.

She is a member of RWA. Haunted Memories, a contemporary romance, and 2010 Nanowrimo novel, won a contest from Ellechor Publishing House. Against the Laws, a 2012 Nanowrimo novel, was a finalist in the Romance Writers of America Chicago-North’s 2016 Fire & Ice Contest. It took third place in the romantic suspense category.

In 2015, She became a Municipal Liaison for Nanowrimo’s Dayton Region. She has the joy and honor of encouraging and equipping other writers.

Rochelle shares her home with one cat, two high schoolers, three lizards, and her Prince.
