The firefighting cowboys of Wildcat Bluffs take Christmas VERY seriously...

When Ivy Bryant arrives in town to run the historic honkytonk, she finds herself immersed in traditions that can't be bucked. Luckily, cowboy firefighter Slade Steele has an idea to increase both the honkytonk's income, and his own. It's an offer Ivy couldn't refuse, even if the passion between them wasn't already reaching the boiling point.

Ivy and Slade's love story is legendary--when you add in arsonist cattle rustlers, a runaway Angus bull, and a chili recipe that includes liquor AND chocolate, Wildcat Bluffs will be celebrating a cowboy Christmas unlike any other.

Smokin' Hot Cowboys:
A Cowboy Firefighter for Christmas (Book 1)
Blazing Hot Cowboy (Book 2)
A Very Cowboy Christmas (Book 3)
Hot for a Cowboy (Book 4)
Cowboy Firefighter Christmas Kiss (Book 5)

My thoughts
Would I recommend it?yes
Would I read any more of this series ?yes
would I read more by this author?yes
What perfect story to read doing Christmas or any time you want a cute romance to get lost in to, it shows the love that a town and its people have for each other as well as family , and that some times Christmas miracles do happen, and that all you have to do is believe in them.As for the characters I loved them , loved Slade and Ivy and while it did seem characters moved fast in their romance ,it wasn't about their romance it was also about how a town pulls together and how one little girl just wants her best friend back safe and sound. So if you want a cute and adorable romance then this is this the one for you, I can see it been made into a lifetime movie if they could and would do it right. And I had no problem getting lost in the story without reading the rest of the series . With that said I want to think Netgalley for letting me read and review it .

Series: Sailor’s Grave #3

About the Book


It took years to do it, but I can finally look in a mirror
and see more than just the scars.
If only that were true for the rest of the world.

The whispers, the stares, the pity they’re familiar now.
Except his eyes don’t linger, his demeanor never changes.
Maybe that’s why I trust him
and take the leap to move in with a virtual stranger.
A stranger who might be more scarred than I am.


The day I got a spot at Sailor’s Grave Tattoo Parlor, I had everything.
A roof over my head, an honest living, a few friends.
The times when I went without no longer factored.

Until she comes into my life.
Until I offer her a place to stay.
Until she draws me in with that blinding light inside her,
and almost makes me forget
to keep the past in the dark where it belongs.


About the Author

Drew Elyse spends her days trying to convince the world that she is, in fact, a Disney Princess, and her nights writing tear-jerking and sexy romance novels.

When she isn't writing, she can usually be found analyzing every line of a book, binge watching shows on Netflix, doing strange vocal warm ups before singing in a variety of musical styles, or screaming at the TV during Chicago Blackhawks games.

A graduate of Loyola University Chicago, she still lives outside Chicago, IL, where she was born and raised, with her boyfriend and her fur babies Lola and Duncan.
