The Sweet Life by Dakota Star

Title: The Sweet Life 
Author: Dakota Star
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 3, 2018 
Publisher: Limitless Publishing

Alexis takes her job very seriously. As one of the younger account executives, proving herself in the workplace is much more important than having a love life. And now that she’s been assigned a dude ranch account, she’s more determined than ever to show her doubters that she has what it takes.
Unfortunately there’s a tall, hot-tempered, brown-eyed cowboy who manages to distract Alexis from her goal by grabbing her attention…in a non-professional kind of way.
Mitch is the cowboy of her dreams—and also a distraction her career can’t afford.
And the real doozy? He also happens to be the ranch owner’s son, and this little fact alone has the potential to ruin everything for this city girl.

Rating: ☆☆☆☆

When Alexis is tasked with turning around the fortunes of a ranch with her marketing skills, she and her friends head there for a weekend away to experience it first hand.  She discovers her affinity for nature and Mitch, the owner's son.  She loves the charm and the beauty of the place and the time there and Mitch makes her question her priorities and her future.

This started out one way and turned into something else along the way.  I would have liked a little more exploring of this something else as felt a little rushed despite the time lapsed.  I loved the simplicity and serenity of Alexis' time at the ranch.  I loved how Mitch stayed true to himself throughout and gave Alexis the strength to be true to herself.

A sweet romantic read.

Dakota Star lives in Connecticut with her husband and two daughters. Both her daughters have finished college and moved away so her dogs, cats, and retired horse now keep her busy. When not outside hiking or horseback riding, she loves to read and travel. She has worked as an editor, a freelance writer for local newspapers, and an educator at local environmental non-profits like aquariums and The National Audubon Society.
