    Fantastic

    I loved this one! Justin has always been one of my favorite characters in this series and it was fantastic to finally get his story. I don't want to give too much away and spoil the story so let me just say I really enjoyed how the author set this one up and how well it was handled. Phoenix and Justin worked great together and I thought it was great how things worked out for everyone. Definitely a book I would recommend.

    Loved Midnight Heat!

    I have read a lot of Cat Johnson's books and they keep getting better and better. I was looking for something to read, so I decided to look at my back-log of ARC's and spotted MIDNIGHT WRANGLER. Read it and loved it (review to come soon!) and went in search of the next. I was very excited when I saw that it was going to be Justin and Rohn and Bonnie's daughter that was given up for adoption at birth. I was not disappointed in the least! Justin was a great character in the previous book so I was anticipating this one would be rather enjoyable. I wasn't wrong, but what made it not just enjoyable, but awesome, was Phoenix. From the word go she was so lovable and endearing to me-someone who I could see as one of my friends. Unlike her "perfect" parents, Phoenix is scatter-brained, unorganized, and feels like she doesn't do a lot of things right. She knew she was adopted and struggled with her stresses of living up to her parents' imaginary expectations she set for herself. Wanting to go out of the country on a relaxing trip with her best friend, she needs a passport but can't find her birth certificate. After applying for a new one, someone in the vital records office messed up and sent her original certificate that listed her birth mother, Bonnie, and not her adopted mother. Of course, anyone at this point would do what humans are naturally inclined to do...snoop! I was so excited for Phoenix to meet Bonnie and Rohn. You have no idea. I think since I knew what good people Bonnie and Rohn are (loved me some Rohn), I knew this would be a great, unexpected reunion. It had me tearing up. I loved it! And we can't forget sweet, sexy Justin. He was weary of Phoenix at first, but eventually softened and let her come along back home with him. He was there for her when Phoenix needed it. I loved the way they were brought together and the pace. The time alone in the car helped them get to know each other, which I think falls through the crack sometimes in books as of late, and make their affection and love for each other more genuine. Now, Justin is battling some issues with his home life, himself, and I wanted to help him out any way I could and give him a hug and tell him it'll get better. He was a great partner for Phoenix. Oh and there is this part in the book where him and Rohn share a little moment and it was so nice and sweet for those two men and it made me love them both all the more! Sexy nights + sweet love = an addicting read! MIDNIGHT HEAT was a great addition to the Midnight Cowboys series. The secondary characters help make this series pleasurable. I can't wait to read the next in the series!

    A young cowboy makes sacrifies for his momma

    Midnight Heat is the third book in the Midnight Cowboys series by Cat Johnson but it can be read as a stand alone. However, if you're anything like me when it comes to book series you will want to read at least book #2 before this one. Book 2 gives you a lot of background on very strong, a little more than secondary, characters in Midnight Heat. Justin's brother died two years ago and both he and his mother are having trouble moving on. His mother has been unable to function normally so Justin gave up his own place to stay with her. He is feeling the pressure of being the sole breadwinner and the need to give up any kind of social life. At less than 30 years old he feels more like 50. Phoenix is a disorganized first-grade teacher. Due to a clerical error she sets out on a journey where she meets Justin. I really can't say more than that because of spoilers. This was a very entertaining and relatively quick read for me. (Amazon says it is 320 pages.) Justin and Phoenix have an adventure with bumps along the way to their HFN, pretty normal for a romance. What was different about this story for me was not just the concern that Justin has for his mother, but the fact that he was willing to sacrifice his happiness for her. While this seemed a bit strange to Phoenix it was only because he didn't explain to her what was going on. So Justin is not some namby-pamby momma's boy, he is a concerned son. If I were to criticize anything it would be the ending. While there is an HFN I wish there had been just a little bit more. I hope Cat Johnson has a book planned for Colton, the third hired hand who works for Rohn on the Double L Ranch. *****Reviewed for Xtreme-Delusions***** I received an ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.

    Contemporary Cowbown Happy for Now Story

    Strangers, secrets, seduction on a long road trip – can it lead to something more than a fling or are the secrets so big that they outweigh everything else? Justin seems overwhelmed with the hand life dealt him. He is doing his best, or he thinks he is, but he knows that both he and his mother need something to get their lives back on track…thus the road trip for Justin. Phoenix had a stroke of luck, she hopes, when a document that arrives in the mail opens the door to secret information from a quarter of a century ago. Justin and Phoenix meet, realize they need to get to the same destination and share the journey. Well written, full of angst, and yet…I never really connected with 100% with Justin or Phoenix. Justin is caring, can be charming and VERY Responsible. Phoenix seems career oriented, sweet and a bit scattered from time to time. I can see why they were the people they were and why there would be physical attraction but some of their story made me wonder. I have a feeling that I have not experienced what they both had so THINK I would have handled things differently but then…everyone is different so they may be like hundreds of others out there. I wondered if Kim, Phoenix’s friend, will be making a trip to Oklahoma and meeting Colter or if each of them will find their own HEA. I also wonder if Justin’s and Bonnie’s mothers will find romance before the series ends. Happy for now books are okay but I guess I prefer a happily ever after ending. Hopefully all of the characters in this series will get that when the last book is published. Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington Books for the copy to read and review. 3.5 Stars

    Slow burns can be the best

    So this story was a slow burn and build up, but not with a lot of sexual tension, just flashes. That isn't a bad thing, because you really got to see the development of the characters together as a couple. They became friends, and it wasn't driven by their lust, it was ruled by them actually getting to know and like each other. Then, every once in a while, both of them had a flash of attraction to the other, but it simmered with them, rather than dictated them It needed to be that way because our characters were dealing with some pretty big issues and anything else would have soaked the story in too many emotions. Phoenix was tracking down her birth mother while hiding that from her adoptive parents. Justin had a mother suffering so deeply from grief she has been suffering for years with no improvement. Justin himself still has PTSD from his own grief and handling his mother Phoenix and Justin find relief with each other, it blocks out the real world and they find comfort, happiness and an ability to be true to their feelings. While Phoenix eventually shares with Justin what she is going through, he decides it is too much and he is too messed up, to share with her. Things work out in the end, and they are both committed to working things out, It isn't tied up all neat and tidy, but then again, what relationship is? They want to try and work things out, and are committed to doing that long distance. It may seem like an abrupt ending but it fits with our characters. They have lots to work through on a personal level, and decisions for the same, to be able to close everything up nice and neat at this point
