Thunderstruck by Vicki Lewis Thompson
Series: Thunder Mountain Brotherhood #2
Release Date: June 16, 2015
The lone cowboy
Damon Harrison never gets too involved. A cowboy at heart, Damon has turned his commitment phobia into a living-flipping houses. The only exceptions to that rule? His foster family at Thunder Mountain Ranch. And now those “exceptions” have talked Damon into working on a new project with a carpenter named Phil .
Only, “Phil” is a nickname for Philomena Turner. She has a wicked way with carpentry and an even wickeder way of turning Damon’s head. And the chemistry is like a lightning bolt of lust. But Phil wants a family and a home, and no hotshot cowboy-even a tantalizingly sexy one-will change that. All she can steal are a few nights of sizzling passion before she has to set this lone cowboy free …
Review [possible spoilers]:
I’ve been counting the days to read the second book in this series. Vicki Lewis Thompson did a great job in the end of the first book and really piqued my curiosity about Damon and Phil’s story.
Damon and Phil are going to work together on a new project that will take place in Thunder Mountain Ranch, so they start exchanging e-mails regarding the project but they only meet in person when Damon returns to the ranch.
Damon has his demons, just like Cade and Finn, so he keeps things simple in his life. He loves his job, he’s a loner and a commitment isn’t really something he ever wanted or needed.
Phil is a independent, strong and beautiful woman who also loves her job. Due to her choice of career, some men (weak men) are intimidated by her and she hasn’t met her match. Until Damon.
Rosie, Damon’s foster mom, thinks Phil and Damon are perfect for each other and she’s right. As soon as they meet, sparks are flying everywhere. Their relationship started a little too fast but it kind of made sense because they have an explosive chemistry and they bond over their love for their jobs in the construction industry. But there comes a point where Damon has to choose if he needs or wants a commitment with Phil.
I loved both Damon and Phil. I really liked the way they interacted with each other and with all the secondary characters (there’s new additions and I’m hoping that some of them might get a book too!). All of them are really special and I think that’s what makes this series so perfect! It goes without saying that I can’t wait for Finn and Chelsea’s book!!!
Thunderstruck can be read as a standalone because there’s enough background to dive into the story without reading the first book, but I definitely recommend both books in this series. I’m definitely, irrevocably in love with Thunder Mountain Brotherhood Series.
