Ava Pearson needs a job—yesterday. After her husband's death, her life in the city became impossible, and a crisis with her young son caused her to lose her job as a reporter. Now Ava is living in her childhood home again, without prospects, but not without hope. If she can just get enough money to tide her over while she pitches an article to an even better big-city paper, Ava feels she can get back on track. The only problem is…what jobs are available in her one-horse town?
Branson Beckett is successful by most measures of the word. He's the owner of a profitable ranch on the brink of expansion and is now looking for a few good ranch hands to help him out. However, he wasn't thinking of his best friend's little sister when it came to hard labor. No, he'd thought of her in other hard situations, but they usually involved the dark of night and his great big bed. Dreams that had no place in reality.
But Ava is convincing. She needs to get out of her parents' house, and Branson needs her help interviewing his ranch hands. It's a win-win. He'll fix his personnel problem, and she'll write an article about it.
As personnel issues lead to personal pleasure between them, Ava's big city dream drifts away, replaced by visions of a family in the country. In the end, Branson will have to face tough truths about himself, his ranch, and his relationship. And if he fails to see the light, he's going to lose the love of his life.
This novel contains sexual content and profanity.
Some serious sparks!
This is book one in the “Did Someone Say Cowboy?” series and it features Ava and Branson. These two are creating some serious sparks. She’s learning to live again as a widow. He’s learning some very important life lessons as a ranch owner, a friend and a brother.
The story line is good and the characters are fantastic. Branson’s character growth was on point. I’m looking forward to reading about sexy cowboys in the next book in this series.

the cowboy on the cover isn’t even that hot he’s kinda UGLY
The has a hot cowboy and a sassy woman that have sparks from the beginning. Ms. North does a great job of developing characters that are engaging and with the storyline flowing smoothly.
