|Mount up is a steamy, tantalizing, erotic and playful romance between Natalie Shea and Luke Reilly.Natalie is a young doctor who moved to Arkansas to complete her residency at Little Rock Memorial Hospital after finishing medical school at UCLA.When Natalie was informed that there was an incoming rodeo injury she couldn’t help herself but think why people would put themselves in such dangerous situations. What she didn’t know was that soon she would meet the man who would totally change her life in more than one way.Luke Reilly is your typical cowboy. He is charming, sexy and knows how to ride.
He has been in the business since he was a young kid. He is a popular guy, loved by his family and friends and desired by all the women in town. When Reilly gets into an accident while at the rodeo he is brought to the ER where Natalie is a doctor. The chemistry between them is instant though Natalie fights to ignore it Luke has no shame in showing his interest in her. There is much more to Luke than the size of his belt buckle.Luke isn’t the type of man Natalie is usually attracted to, but to her surprise her body reaction to his sex-appeal said otherwise. The story develops easily and fast. The characters are fun, sexy and sexual. Melissa Ecker certainly has a way with words, the sex is steamy, and the conversations feel real. The story is short, however it is well thought and developed.
Great read it totally deserves
|Natalie is a doctor at the hospital when a cocky bull rider is brought in after having a fall and a near miss trampling. Every nurse in the ER wants the opportunity to look after this guy and can’t believe the Natalie doesn’t even know who he is.Natalie on the other hand is unimpressed even if she does admire the packaging.Even though he’s in pain, Luke still tries to flirt with the doctor but with no obvious success. When he finds her on the side of the road after she’s run her car into a ditch, he recognizes her straight away and takes her home with him so she can get out of the storm.
The sex is rough and sort of blindsided me to start with as I wasn’t expecting it. I didn’t anticipate Natalie’s reaction to Luke either as she didn’t seem like someone would like to be domineered and manhandled. Even though it was unexpected it didn’t detract from how hot it was at all!As they spend more time together their relationship continues to develop and we get to experience the ups and downs right along with them. The relationship is fiery but at the same time sweet. Their exchanges both in and out of the bedroom are well written and realistic and as other situations arise the reactions seem genuine and right for the characters. This is an enjoyable well written read and I’m intrigued to read more by Ms Ecker.
My responses: Giggling along with a book is always a good sign to me. If those two continued to carry on like that there would be a lot of horses saved ;-). What big hands that man must have! My god, they must be huge to be able to do what he does with them! I have a funny image of Natalie as Red Riding Hood talking to Dave Grohl (in the video for Everlong) like she does to the wolf.
Good read I give it 3½ ♥ ♥ ♥
