A quick fling can sure heat up a cowgirl's life

A devastating discovery ends Marti Jenkins' engagement. Now she's ready to play the field for a while. A sidestep away from an angry rattlesnake lands her in the office of Whispering Springs' new orthopedic doctor, Dr. Eli Boone. And yeah, he's as hot as she's been told.

Dr. Eli Boone is only in town for six months covering his friend's practice and then it's back to New York City and into the societal world he's lives. A widower for seven years, he's not looking for a replacement wife, but he wouldn't say no to a quick tumble in the sheets with the right woman.

Due to ridiculous challenge he never should have accepted, Eli has to get over his discomfort around horses and learn to ride before he leaves town. He turns to the one person who can help him win the bet, Marti Jenkins.

As he learns to ride a horse, Marti does a little riding of her own...and she doesn't need a horse.

I realized when I began reading that Texas Daze seemed very familiar. After doing a little research I found it must be the first book by Cynthia D'Alba that I read. It was in an anthology titled, When Things Got Hot in Texas. When I reviewed the anthology I stated that “Texas Daze by Cynthia D’Alba is another favorite of mine in the anthology as a minor injury sends a cowgirl straight into the arms of a New York bound doctor.” I gave it five stars then and have not reason to change now. This Texas Montgomery Mavericks book 9 has genuinely likable characters in a believable story-line. Eli is a man who does back down from a challenge. Marti is a strong, independent woman. Both are carrying around too much baggage, so why not drop some of it. Many of the Montgomery Clan make an appearance in the story. Just love this family. Since I first read it before any of the other books in the series, I can clearly say it reads well as a stand-alone. Calling all cowboy romance fans this is a series to fall in love with. The publisher/author gave me a complimentary ARC of the book which I voluntarily chose to read and reviewed. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I really enjoyed this story by Cynthia D'Alba. Marti Jenkins loves her work on her family ranch and injuries come with the job so twisting her ankle in a gopher hole isn't surprising even though it pisses her off. After trying to avoid the doctor for days her mother finally makes the appointment and isn't taking no for an answer. The appointment gets a lot more interesting when the new doctor walks into the exam room. Dr. Eli Boone is working at his friends clinic for six months and then heading back to the big city where he belongs, but meeting Marti is the perfect "pick me up" that he needs. He hasn't been on a real date since moving to Texas and she definitely has his attention. They have no idea that their chance meeting is going to turn each other's world upside down. I was given an ARC from the author/publisher. All conclusions are mine and mine alone.

Author Cynthia D'Alba has written another fun and entertaining novel with Texas Daze, the ninth book from her Texas Montgomery Mavericks series. It is a nicely-paced read, replete with an engaging plot, two well-defined main characters, and a complicated, yet seductive romance. The story takes place in the small town of Whispering Springs, Texas, where finding true love is a bit challenging. Although this book is part of a series, it can be enjoyed as a standalone. Martha Gale Jenkins, aka Marti, is a genuine cowgirl. She loves being a rancher, and has completely immersed herself in her work while she picks up the pieces from a failed engagement. Lots of pain due to an injured ankle brings her to Dr. Eli Boone, the new but temporary orthopedist from New York City. Dr. Boone is smart, hot, and funny, and the attraction they share is undeniable. Marti and Eli are total opposites and they are not looking for a commitment, however, they end up spending time together which evolves from lust into love. Ms. D'Alba has become one of my favorite authors and I always enjoy her effortless writing style. This is an well-written story, and Marti and Eli are interesting, complex and genuine. They are a hot and fun couple, both in and out of the bedroom. If you enjoy a novel with a lot passion and energy, then pick up a copy of this book. Complimentary copy provided.

Texas Daze is a fast paced, fairly quick read if you get addicted to it like I did! This one grabs your attention quickly and keeps you turning the pages until the very end. I loved Marti & Eli, she being a strong heroine is one of my favorite things. She's fiercely independent and deeply rooted in Texas, her friends and family. Eli is a pretty great hero as well, being an upper class doctor doesn't stop him from getting his hands dirty or falling for a cowgirl, not to mention being pretty damn sexy and bringing the heat. I loved this book, read it nearly nonstop until and cannot wait to go back through this series from the beginning.

Marti and Eli have an intense attraction to one another but Marti isn't interested in a relationship and Eli is only in town for a short time. So what do they do? They agree to have fun while they can. However, things don't always go as planned. Marti doesn't see herself doing anything other than working on the family ranch and Eli has his own medical practice in another state. Can these 2 overcome these obstacles and compromise to be together? Or will past experiences keep them apart? Very likable characters, steamy scenes, laugh out loud moments, and lots of chemistry. What's not to love? A great, quick, easy read.

Quirky, fun, sweet, sexy, thrilling and emotionally gripping unexpected second chance at love romance filled with passion and laughter. (two of my favorite things) Marti Jenkins is a sweet, sexy, strong and huge hearted rancher with a bad experience on an almost trip down the aisle. Now focused on her family ranch she is so not looking for love or forever. Dr. Eli Boone is only in town for six mouths to cover his friends practice while he is away. After losing his wife seven years ago he is not in the market for forever either.... Loved this beautifully written romantic journey and the small town it was in.

Marti Jenkins has no interest in a relationship, not after her engagement ended like it did. Enter Dr. Eli Boone, who has come to Whispering Springs as a favor to his friend. Eli isn't interested in a relationship either but he's not adverse to a no-strings relationship. When a patient presents him with a challenge, he turns to Marti for help - and this may just turn not only his life on its head but also Marti's. Can two people from two different worlds find happiness? This is a quick read and Ms. D'Alba makes an effort to provide the reader with a cast of characters beyond Marti and Eli. While this is the ninth book in this series, you do not need to have read the previous books. Marti is intent on demonstrating to her parents that she can manage their ranch while they take a vacation but that doesn't mean she can't have fun. The attraction between Marti and Eli is electric and it is no surprise when they are drawn to each other. Because this is so short, however, it sometimes feels like Ms. D'Alba relies on common romantic tropes to move the plot along. There were moments where I wish I had more insight into how Marti and Eli feel towards each other, rather than being told what they feel towards each other. Despite this, I thought this was a cute read.

Everybody knows everything is hotter in Texas! Marti Jenkins is living life on her family ranch trying to get over a failed engagement. She doesn't want or need a new man. However, all that changes when she meets the temporary "Doctor Hottie" that has all the ladies gossiping all over the small town. Dr. Eli Boone went to Texas knowing his position was a temporary favor for an old friend. After his wife died he's never tried to find love, and doesn't want to. But Marti Jenkins changes everything for him. She's independent, fiesty, and makes Eli realize that he may have a second chance at love. But with is position temporary, will these two allow things to burn hot for them in the Texas sun? I absolutely adored Marti! She's a very independent, loyal, and kind of quirky woman. She's confident and doesn't take anybody's crap.

This is a very fast pace fun read that holds you attention giving the reader something to really smile at. The chemistry between Eli and Marti's is hot, leaving the reader doing some heavy fanning. When a New York surgeon meets a Texas cowgirl sparks fly and gets very interesting. Both have their own fears and will have to deal with a few issues. I really enjoyed the writing as the author pulled me in giving me scenes they felt so real and natural. I also enjoyed when Eli mother came into the picture and how that all worked out. When the foal was born that was a very touching and remembering scene that really touched my heart. I thought this was well written really grabbing the reader. It is a short read but has everything in it that we have come to love from Ms. D’Alba writing. You can’t stop yourself from smiling as you go from scene to scene. The scenes are so vivid you almost feel like you are there. I loved the plot and the way things are worked out as well as the characters. Both are a little bullhead which gives the reader some very good entertainment.

ARC for honest review with no compensation Read Texas Daze from When things got hot and what a great read! ! Cynthia D’Alba always has just the right characters, well developed story line, and bring back others from a former series to complete a new story line with added heat to make you keep reading! Eli an Ortho surgeon from New York is so out of his element in Whispering Springs and Marti a sexy, smart and beautiful cowgirl who is running her parents ranch. Will these two find a way for a HEA even though they are from different worlds or will they just crash and burn????

This was a fun and sexy short story. Dr. Eli Boone was in Whispering Springs Texas for only a short 6 months then its back to New York and a life that he's always wanted. Marti Jenkins has lived her life on her parents ranch The Flying Pig. Ranching is in her blood and what she loves. Meeting the hot new Dr. was not on her to-do list and not after she's sprained her ankle. Sparks fly but you don't date a patient but after she released Eli can't stop himself and asks Marti out. If asking her to teach him to ride because of a wager all the better to spend more time with her. I think I loved Marti more then Eli. She is such a spitfire and with a quick whit that she made me laugh. Eli is very sexy and sweet and knows just what to say to make you sigh. You could feel their friendship growing and I think that's what I liked the best about the story. A must read!
