Bootscootin' Blahniks (The Bootscootin' Books) 


I'm doing two Indie Books Reading Challenges for 2011 - the ABC Indie Fiction Challenge, and the I Heart Indie Books Reading Challenge (more details below). In helping to spread the word about the wonderful selection of Indie books out there, I'm going to be blogging about my progress and reviews. 

My thirteenth review is of Bootscootin' Blahniks - a fun-packed chicklit-country romp...

About Bootscootin' Blahniks

Manhattan apparel designer Roxy Rae Vaughn, who's also a still-in-the-closet, country line dancing queen, wants to be a fashion success story. Tired of being nothing more than a Fifth Avenue up-and-comer, thanks to her elitist parents, Roxy moves to Nashville, Tennessee and opens a boutique in a local tractor supply store, the only retail space she can afford. Short on cash and way, way down on luck, she rear-ends a pick-up truck belonging to a tomato-growin', bootscootin' cowboy who is anything but the perfect fit for her career plans, although he is her ideal dance partner. Can Roxy accept that her best fit is on the dance floor moving to her own style and her cowboy's lead?

Tomato farmer by day and bootscootin' instructor by night Zayne McDonald doesn't give a damn about winning Nashville's heirloom tomato contest, even though his late father did. Zayne wants to honor his father, but what he really wants is to line dance his way to a winner's spotlight. When he and Roxy are discovered by a huge dance show producer, Zayne learns it's partnering with Roxy that's his winning hybrid mix. That is, if he can keep her and the tomato contest away from Beefsteak Jack Baudlin, the toughest tomato man in CMT country.

Review

Roxy is feisty, sweet, capable, and I loved her go-get-it attitude. She's trying everything she can to succeed in the world on her own terms. But when she accidentally runs into cowbow, Zayne, her eyes are opened up to a whole new world. 

Wow! I loved this book. The descriptions are so vivid and colourful it really feels like the reader's going through the same wild rollercoaster ride as Roxy and Zayne. And the love scenes are so sexy that I was getting pretty hot reading them! I fell in love with Zayne myself! It's a funny, sexy, sassy attitude of a read, and I can't wait to get stuck into the next one.

Bootscootin' Blahniks is available from Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk.
