Resisting the Rancher (Hills of Texas, #2)Resisting the Rancher by Kadie Scott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Resisting the Rancher is the second book in Kadie Scott’s Hills of Texas series. I do not know how I missed the first book so now I need to go back and read that one as well! The stories can be read as standalones but obviously as it is a series of the Hills’ siblings then you will end up wanting to read every single one of them (and there are four out so Yeehaw here comes a weekend spent in Texas!)
Resisting the Rancher is the story of Williams “Will” Hills and Ruth “Rusty” Walker – a cowboy rancher who provides stock to rodeo circuit and a top-level barrel racer who is the daughter of a renown rancher who is a major stock provider as well … the sparks fly, the chemistry is through the roof and then there is the baggage that this hard headed accomplished woman has and we are pulled along a ride of a life time, in Texas style!
Come along and learn first-hand if Rusty will learn to trust and a marriage that started off as a convenience will blossom into something more …

Rusty Walker has spent her entire life trying to earn her tough, ranching father’s respect and approval by learning the business inside and out. But now her uncompromising parent has decreed she must marry if she wants to inherit. Worse, her husband has to be someone who can help her run the business. As if she needs it!

Williams Hill kissed Rusty in a bar in an act of temporary insanity, and lost his heart to her on the spot. Despite the complications to his own rodeo stock business, he agrees to marry the feisty red-head, hoping to woo her once they’re hitched. But she only views him with suspicion and resentment.

Can this soft-spoken Texas cowboy convince his proud wife, who’s never known unconditional love, that she is everything he wants?


Kadie Scott is an award-winning contemporary romance author. She is obsessed with plots that move hot and fast, feisty heroines with sass, alpha heroes with heart, a dash of snark, and oodles of sexy cowboys (or nerd, or billionaires, or guys next door, or bad boys, or…oh you get it). She also writes award-winning paranormal romance as Abigail Owen, so let’s add in sexy shifters!

Abigail grew up consuming books and exploring the world through her writing. She attempted to find a practical career related to her favorite pastime by earning a degree in English Rhetoric (Technical Writing) and an MBA. However, she swiftly discovered that writing without imagination is not nearly as fun as writing with it. Abigail currently resides in Austin, Texas, with her own personal hero (who she totally married!) and their two children, who are growing up way too fast.

Resisting the Rancher (The Hills of Texas Book 2) By Kadie Scott – Review By Melissa Agena

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book! I haven’t read a good country story in a long time! Resisting the Rancher is Book 2 in The Hills of Texas Series by Kadie Scott. Rusty Walker has grown up wanting to take over her family’s ranch. However, the only thing stopping her is her father. Her father resents the fact that she is female and can’t possibly run the ranch because of it. It’s also the same reason why she will never date a man that has to do with the Rodeo circuit. Her father also has a plan for Rusty. Rusty has to marry within the next year to someone that he approves of or she will not be able to take over the ranch. But she is bound and determined to prove that she can do it on her own. Williams “Will” Hill is in the rodeo stock business as well as horses. He is also very handsome. The instant these two eyes meet, something takes over. Instant attraction but Rusty is hell bent on not dating anyone involved with the circuit. But there is something that keeps pulling her back to him and vice versa. Will is ultimately intrigued by Rusty and all of her beauty. What will happen when things are forced between the two? I love the connection that these two have. This book was definitely a page turner! I couldn’t put this book down. The author really knows how to write a story to where you feel like you are there. I can’t wait to read the other books in the series. You do not have to read the first book in order to read this one!

Resisting the Rancher (Hills of Texas, #2)Resisting the Rancher by Kadie Scott
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Second book in the series where we meet the 2nd Hill sibling, Will. I don’t know which one I like the most but one thing is certain: Kadie comes up with the most patient and swoon worthy heroes. Don’t worry if you haven’t read the first book, this one can definitely be read as a standalone.

We get an instalove between Will and Rusty, although Rusty fights it with all her being. Being raised by a single father who didn’t know how to deal with girls, Rusty has been love deprived. Needless to say her trust in men is nonexistent. But Will’s patience and love broke those walls one by one.
Sweet, intense and steamy story that made me want to visit Texas and one of those rodeos (coming from a city girl in Europe) 🙂

Resisting the Rancher (Hills of Texas Series Book #2) by Kadie Scott – Review by Angela Hayes

4 Stars


Resisting the Rancher is the second book in the Hills of Texas Series by Kadie Scott. Ms. Scott is a new-to-me author and I am really happy that I stumbled on her book, because I really enjoyed it and I will definitely be reading more of her work in the future. This is the second book in the series, but it can be read as a standalone, which is what I did. There are characters in this book who had their own story, in book #1- and they have intrigued me enough to want to go back and read their story as well.

This book is a great contemporary/western/cowboy romance. There was drama, chemistry, some emotion, passion, and wonderful characters.

Rusty Walker is quite an accomplished young woman- she is top level barrel racer, a brilliant horse trainer, a masterful rider, and can run a ranch with her eyes closed. But, even as talented as she is- she can’t seem to put a foot right when it comes to her controlling, hard-hearted father. She constantly feels the need to prove herself to him, but he never acknowledges her skills, let alone show her any affection. Rusty wants to take over the family ranch when her father retires, which she hopes will be soon. But instead, he announces that she won’t have anything to do with the ranch unless she marries within the next year. Rusty is shocked- she doesn’t even have a boyfriend, let alone a potential husband on hand. She really wants to be able to put her mark on the family ranch, but she has to face the fact that her dreams may be going up in smoke. What can she do? Because things don’t look good for her, and she may be left with no choice but to leave the only home she’s ever known.

Williams Hill is a cowboy rancher, who is building a business providing stock to the rodeo circuit. He is a gifted horse trainer, and a savvy businessman. While at the latest rodeo, he notices a sexy redhead singing her heart out in the car stopped next to his at the lights. There is a spark of awareness between them, before she takes off when the lights change. Will can’t stop thinking about her but thinks he probably will never see her again. So, imagine his surprise when he sees her at the rodeo- but whenever he tries talking to her, she shuts him down. But as the days pass and they keep bumping into each other, she slowly begins to thaw.

But she won’t allow herself to trust him completely, because she’s been burnt in the past- not to mention having a father like hers has given Rusty quite a lot of issues. When Will discovers who she is and what her father had demanded of her, he makes her a deal she can’t refuse. What is the deal you ask? And does Rusty’s suspicious nature get the better of her and end up derailing their blossoming romance? And will she finally win her father’s respect? All this and more can be discovered between the cover of this great book. You really should uncover all the answers for yourself. It really is worth the read!

Now I am looking forward to reading the rest of this series, if this book is any indication, they are set to be awesome!

Well done!


Thank you, Ms. Scott!

Resisting the Rancher (Hills of Texas, #2)Resisting the Rancher by Kadie Scott
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Resisting the Rancher (The Hills of Texas Book 2) by Kadie Scott is a wonderfully well written contemporary country romance story. The story is a slow burn romance and the relationship between our main characters was a pleasant read. Falling in love with the characters was as easy as the flow of the tale. This story makes you feel warm you and fuzzy and your heart melts and gets invested hoping against hope for a happy outcome. There is a bit of an emotional ride for the main female character and my heart went out to her and the life she had been brought up in. This is one story that you don’t want to miss out on.
