ARC Review: Her Renegade Cowboy by Lora Leigh

Her Renegade Cowboy

Lora Leigh
Series: Moving Violations (Book 3)
Publication: St. Martin's Paperbacks (September 28, 2021)

Description: He will risk his life…

The oh-so-proper school teacher, Lily Donovan has learned, the hard way, that men are not to be trusted. Period. Until Levi Roberts, the new cowboy working at her cousin's ranch, tempts her carefully-built resolve and awakens an all-consuming passion she thought lay dormant. But when she discovers his deadly secret, and her own secrets come to light, Lily unwittingly joins the lethal cat and mouse race between Levi and the man he’s been hunting for weeks.

To save her heart…

Former Ranger Levi Roberts has seen his fair share of deadly trouble during his years as a tough-as-nails operative. The ultimate expert in undercover investigations, he’s been tasked to find a man with a dangerous agenda in town. Routine work has been boring…until he runs into Lily, the prickly school teacher who tempts him like no other. Getting under her skin has been deliciously satisfying for his red-hot desire, but when Lily lands in the hands of the very man he’s been investigating, Levi will have to fight with every ounce of his heart and soul to save her―and to heal the heart he broke.

My Thoughts: This is the third book in the Moving Violations series. The main characters are Lily Donovan and Levi Roberts. 

Lily is now an elementary school teacher but, while she was a college student, she was groomed and assaulted by her psychology professor who was a serial rapist building up to be a serial killer. Lily was almost his second murder victim but escaped and testified against him resulting in his prison sentence. Her role was kept quiet. No one but her sister and a cousin's wife knows what happened.

However, now professor Graham Brisbee has escaped from prison and Lily refuses to go into protective custody. Former Army Ranger and current Deputy Marshal Levi Roberts is sent undercover to watch over her and be on the lookout for Brisbee.

The two fall in love and have lots of hot sex almost before they have a conversation. In between the very descriptive sex scenes both feel guilty about keeping secrets from the other. When Levi's identity is outed, Lily naturally feels betrayed and is determined to have nothing further to do with Levi. Meanwhile, Levi is willing to do anything to apologize because Lily is the first woman he has ever wanted to have a long-term relationship with. 

Then Brisbee shows up, kidnaps Lily's sister and demands Lily come to him. Levi has to find her before it's too late. 

If you like your romantic suspense filled with sex scenes, this is the book for you. 

Favorite Quote:
She'd been hurt, nearly killed, by one man, but she sensed that this man could break her inside, and that terrified her. Terrified her and drew her.
I received this one in exchange for an honest review from NetGalley. You can buy your copy here.
