Against the Wall by Rebecca Zanetti

Oh yeah! They do it against the wall…twice.

What’s it About?


Surveying the proposed site for a high-end golf course should have been a breeze for spunky landscape architect Sophie Smith. But when this born-and-bred city girl is literally swept off her feet by a sexy cowboy on horseback, she realizes country life has some serious (and seriously steamy) possibilities. That is, until she finds out exactly who her smoking hot wrangler really is.

Tribal lawyer Jake Lodge is desperately trying to block the development. And if that means playing hardball, so be it. But Sophie is a distraction he didn’t expect. A distraction that makes his blood burn. Two different worlds. Two opposing sides. And when they finally give into temptation, the consequences will shake the foundations of both of their lives…

First Impressions

Sophie is out in the forest making notes for her golf course design when she first meets Jake. He literally sweeps her off her feet onto his horse. Yes sir, I’d ride that cowboy! The tension between Sophie and Jake is positively mesmerizing, and not just the sexual tension (which is pretty freakin’ phenomenal). There is also a large amount of tension surrounding the affect her golf course design will have on the local community, and Jake is the lawyer representing the interests of the local Native American Indian tribe. This sets up the scenario for some heated arguments which lead to some more heated interactions between the two.


Points Off

Overall I absolutely loved this book, but it gets two demerit points:

1) At one point in the story, Jake and Sophie are getting to know each other by taking their clothes off and getting intimate on his backyard porch dining table. It starts to rain and they go inside to finish things up. Come on! It’s a sin to deprive the readers of some sex in the rain!!

2) Jake has a daughter. Hear me out! It’s not that he has a daughter that bothers me, but rather that she’s barely featured at all throughout the novel! I think she’s only in like 3 scenes total, and has 2 brief conversations with Sophie. This was such a disappointment because she was actually an adorable little character, and I wanted to see more!

Series: Maverick Montana, book 1. I am so gonna read the next one. Can’t wait to read about Jake’s hunky brothers!

Should you read it? Absolutely! It’s a great contemporary romance with a fabulous sexual connection between Jake and Sophie, not to mention an interesting plot on how their respective jobs could be a detriment to their new-found relationship. Also, Jake looks amazing in both a suit, or riding on a horse. Mmmmm.

Smut Level: In addition to up against the wall, these two find some interesting locales to do the deed. The shower, a garden bench, the front porch. Jake likes to take control and set the pace. Aaaaahhhhh.
