The Devil Wears Spurs (Texas Kings #1) by Soraya Lane
Synopsis: Introducing the King brothers-three red-hot Texas billionaire cowboys who are wildly devoted to their family ranch…and the women who can tame them.
SHE KNOWS WHEN TO HOLD’EM.
As a newcomer to the great Lone State, Chloe thinks she’s immune to the charms of cowboys-until Ryder King comes along. A gorgeous rodeo star with a gambling problem should spell trouble for Chloe, who’s as quick-witted as she is stunning. But there’s something gentle in Ryder’s otherwise wild nature that gives her pause. And she can only fight her attraction for so long…
IS HE READY TO SHOW HIS HAND?
Texas born, bred, and proud, Ryder has always had a way with the ladies-though not so much with poker. He’s just bet, and lost, a third of his family’s ranch in a game. Can Chloe, the daughter of a card sharp who knows how to play to win, team up with Ryder in Vegas to help him win it back? The closer Ryder comes to getting back the ranch, the greater he risks losing his heart to Chloe. Is he ready to lay it all on the line for her? And can she trust that Ryder is for real-or is one of Texas’s most notorious playboys too good to be true?
Review: I got a taste for Soraya Lane when I read The Cowboy Stole My Heart through NetGalley so I thought to try some more. I liked what I had read and hoped for the best. Now in all honestly I only read book 1 because I wanted to read book 3 and I hate reading out of order. A youngest grandson who gambled and loses his inheritance and a down on her luck bartender who happened to be good at poker didn’t exactly catch my interest so I did go into reading it not expecting much. It was good. The middle was slow but I liked the characters and they carried the story. They were strong and real and Chloe and her back story really pulled me in. The plot was ok, the villain was scummy, which was expected, but her dad making an appearance and Ryder (love the name btw) coming to her defense was just so delicious and added some tense moments where Ryder saw the real Chloe behind the reformed poker player. I enjoyed the story and am diving right into book two, which should show that the series definitely has appeal and so do the King brothers. Yummy cowboys, and here I’ve never really been into the cowboy type but so the King brothers are definitely appealing.
