The Rawhide Man is about a man determined to get company shares from his enemy. The only way to get this accomplished though is by a marriage of convenience. What was supposed to be a simple business transaction may not be so simple after all.
You get the gist of the story quickly, though I was confused by the first few pages when the author tried to lay the foundation to the rest of the story. The correlations explained to the reader didn't make any sense and though the author tried to give the title explanation in these pages as well, it didn't help clear anything up. There were other smalls mistakes here and there throughout the story as well, along with some weird dialogue and interaction.
- Pg. 59: Jade instead of Jude
- Character 1 ruffles the hair of Character 2, though the scene they are in doesn't fit that type of interaction and wouldn't occur between these types of characters ever.
- Character 2 calls Character 1, 'Rawhide Man' on several occasions. It didn't sound right at all, and you still don't understand why that name is even being used.
Reluctant Father is about a man who finds a little girl, a child he never knew he had, on his doorstep in need of a home. How is he supposed to raise a child? To complicate matters further an old acquaintance is in town that he had hurt years before that could help or make matters worse.
Just as with the first book, you get the gist of the story rather quickly, but this book had some contradictory sections, along with some dialogue that didn't make sense.
-Character 1 explains to the reader that they hadn't started having feelings towards Character 2 until a certain interaction, but later on Character 1 says that it was actually earlier than that set interaction we were told, among other detail changes.
- Character 1 says that Character 2 needs to button their shirt or they will start screaming their head off. That statement alone doesn't make any sense, but it's also not remotely plausible for this character to say that type of thing either.
In both books the male characters have the same hair and eye color, so you could tell the author had a preference here. There was also a character in each book with the same name, so I initially thought these two stories were connected to some extent through this character, but that was not the case, and it caused a bit of confusion initially.
Both books also have sex scenes in them, that may make you a little warm under the collar depending on your tolerance level. I personally didn't mind these scenes because of the way they were presented to the reader.
While The Rawhide Man story got me emotionally, I enjoyed a couple character interactions from the Reluctant Father a bit more because they were not the usual you read in adult books.
I liked reading the stories for what they were, a quick read that didn't require too much effort, and would read another book by this author.
