Emily returns to the country after a ten year absence. She’s almost twenty-two and very much a woman. Her first priority is getting into the pants of the three Macintosh brothers that she’s never stopped thinking about over the years. They’ve sure grown up and have to be the hottest cowboys she’s every known.
All three men easily fall in love with her, but aren’t willing to share. With such strong feelings for each of the Macintosh brothers, she could never choose between them. Her mission is to change their minds and convince them that sharing isn’t so bad after all. In fact, it could be down right amazing.
Emily went to the MacIntosh ranch looking for reminders of an untainted childhood, what she found was boys of her youth had grown into the men of her dreams.
It’s been said that you can never go home again, but what if going home was exactly what you needed to heal your soul and in turn heal the aching hearts of the men you never forgot? Emily Rickshaw had never resolved the terror she experienced at the hands of a family friend and had instead turned the anger into rebellion. Likewise, the MacIntosh brothers had each reacted to their own tragedy in equally unhealthy ways. They need Emily to heal the damage as much as she needs them.
Be prepared to have your heart strings tugged at great lengths by this poignant novella. Ms. Espino’s characters are very complex and yet at the same time so very real. Emily’s personal struggles and the boys heartache is so palpable at times as I reader I couldn’t help but hurt for them. You know their actions are motivated by their past.
Don’t get me wrong this book isn’t all gloom and sadness. There are some sexual encounters (both one on one and the ménage scenes) that are smoking HOT! Holy sexual scorchers Batman! Don’t forget your fire extinguisher. Emily is brash, flirty and not afraid to ask for what she wants. And what she wants includes three hot young cowboys.
This was my first book by Ms. Espino and it certainly won’t be my last. I’ve already been scoping out her works in progress to see what I need to add to my TBR. Do yourself a favor and pick a copy of Damaged Cowboys, you won’t be sorry.
