When Clare Stevens walked onto the McCallister ranch, she expected her life to be a certain way. She was the mail-order bride of the owner, and she was to fulfill her duties. Clean the house, cook for his men, and warm his bed at night. What she didn't expect was the beefy cowboy who walked in and literally swept her off her feet.

Cash McCallister didn't have time to date and find a wife. So a mail-order bride seemed the easiest way to find a partner. He thought he'd made a mistake until he laid eyes on the little piece of sunshine that lit up his life. He never imagined a true love like this. He never knew an obsession could take hold so tightly.

When drama hits the farm and their fast love is threatened, can Clare and Cash hold it together?

Warning: This is literally as cliché as it sounds...and just as awesome. It's country living with high-calorie foods and easy sunsets. Come sit on the porch and stay a while. You'll like what you see.

So, this happened. LOL

What can I say? It’s typical Alexa Riley: dirty, full of insta-love and no real characterizations. Strangely, I’ve liked this one more than the others by her I’ve read lately. AR churns romances out but it might be time for her to slow her roll a bit so she can double down on tightening up.

Lassoing the Virgin Mail Order Bride is quite adorable in a cheesy way. AR has been slowly trending to 100% virgin couples and Lassoing the Virgin Mail Order Bride is no exception. Also par for the course here is a “tiny” heroine (check), a virgin heroine (check), a blonde heroine (check). There’s the obsessed hero (check), the hero who grunts “mine” and acts insanely possessive (check), a virgin hero (check, check, check) and no relationship conflict (CHECK!).

I really can’t complain too much, however. Last I checked Alexa Riley had no guns to my head to force me to read her work. I get something out of them, for sure.
