Rebecca Zanetti – Against the Wall



Never challenge a cowboy in the courtroom…

Surveying the proposed site for a high-end golf course should have been a breeze for spunky Landscape Architect Sophie Smith. But when this born-and-bred city girl is suddenly—and quite literally—swept off her feet by a sexy cowboy on horseback, she realizes that the country life has some serious (and seriously steamy!) possibilities. That is, until she finds out exactly who her smokin’-hot wrangler really is.

Cowboy and Tribal lawyer Jack Lodge is desperately trying to block the development. And if that means playing hardball—and being every inch the shark lawyer—so be it. But Sophie is a distraction he didn’t expect. A distraction that makes his blood burn.

Two different worlds. Two opposing sides. And when they finally give into the exquisite temptation, the consequences will shake the foundations of both of their lives…


I have read Rebecca Zanetti before. She writes a great paranormal series, that I have been reading for a while. When I saw that she had a contemporary out and about cowboys; I had to give it a whirl. I’m really glad I gave it a chance. Like so many others I’m a sucker for a cowboy, but I’m also a sucker for a hot Native American (usually in a historical) so I’m really glad she didn’t screw this up! LOL

From the beginning to the end I was absorbed in this book. I could not put it down, it was steamy as all get out but it also had a plot. And the plot was pretty decent. It had a few cliché moments but overall, the story had me just as absorbed as the steamy elements. For Jake and Sophie the sparks start flying almost immediately, Jake literally sweeps her off her feet when he scoops her up while riding on horseback rather than running her over. When they discover they are on opposite sides of a court battle, that should have cooled things off, but instead the flames just increased until there was no other option than combusting in each other’s arms. They had great chemistry and a fun push pull thing going on. As it also turns out Jake likes to call the shots in the courtroom and out of it too! *wink wink*

This book also had great side characters. All of Jake siblings showed up quite a bit and they are getting set up for their own stories, which I cannot wait for! So, if you were thinking about giving this one a try but were on the fence, I definitely recommend it!
