HARD-RIDING COWBOY – A Stacey Kennedy Review


We’re on a cowboy binge! The previous two Blachshaws have been filled with heat and passion; and Nash is no different; with his desire to roping up Meghan every chance their alone and even making sure their alone to do it. But Kennedy throws in a twist with a surprise pregnancy between the ill-fated lovers. In a spin on the Romeo & Juliet familial feud, Nash and Meghan have danced around their attraction to one another their entire lives. While Meghan doesn’t fully understand or support the feud, Nash struggles with it while working on the Blackshaw ranch. He has a deep hatred for Meghan’s father and it could be something that comes between their HEA.

A lot of this book is spent back and forth between Meghan’s ability to handle the two men her life hating one another and her need to be independent. Every time Nash seems to take one step forward, another accident or mishap at the ranch leads him to believe her father had a hand it and pushes them two steps back. The will-they, wont-they makes for entertainment while Nash deals with the mysterious setbacks at the ranch. I kept wondering if Megan’s father truly had something to do with it all. And my heart broke for her thinking he could’ve been guilty.

I would call this a second chance romance only because Meghan and Nash seem to need multiple tries at trusting each other before realizing what it will take to truly be happy. All along their story theirs also a romance for Jenny Blackshaw (the boys’ mother), a stray mama cat and her kittens (#smitten), and Nash’s discovery of how his bull-riding accident truly affected him years ago. Absolutely a romance about overcoming all obstacles including accidents, family feuds, self-doubt, and pride. A wonderful, heartfelt (and sexy!) end to the Blackshaw series!

Megan Harrison is the owner of Kinky Spurs. She’s mortgaged up to her eyeballs and works long days and nights, but she’s living life on her terms, not on her wealthy father’s. She’s done being in the cattle rancher’s shadow. She’s got it all figured out, except for the part that involves Nash Blackshaw. He’s a sexy as hell cowboy whose smile can easily charm her out of her tight jeans. The only problem is—their fathers were business rivals, and Megan and Nash have been taught to hate each other since birth.

Nash Blackshaw, a retired professional bull rider, has responsibilities on top of responsibilities. With his PBR career over due to back injury, and his focus narrowed on heading up the Blackshaw Cattle Company’s Guest Ranch, he shouldn’t have time to think about all the ways he wants Megan. But it’s all he thinks of around the sassy and sweet woman. She might be forbidden to him, but Nash wants to take her for a hard, kinky ride.

But small towns have a way of spreading gossip like wildfire, and not everyone is happy about their relationship. Especially when Megan drops a bombshell on Nash after one heated night between them. As much as Megan and Nash want to forget the old feud between their fathers and lose each other in explosive passion, they can’t escape reality. They are meant to be enemies, and Nash’s sizzling, dominant touch might not be enough to keep them together.
