Review of Golden Opportunity by Donna Marie Rogers

Synopsis: "When a gorgeous little filly shows up at the door waving what she says is the deed to half his ranch, owner James McMillan is incredulous. But sure enough, his brother Reese sold her his half of the Double M during a poker game in Atlantic City. So not only must James find a way to get back those shares, he needs to fight his growing attraction for his luscious new business partner. Angela Roberts has never wanted anything more than the security of a real home. Her dreams come true when half of a Colorado horse ranch falls into her lap. If Reese McMillan is too blind to appreciate what he has, that's his loss, but she hasn't counted on the hostile reception she receives from his brother. James is surly as a bear, and too handsome for her peace of mind. but Angela sets out to prove she has what it takes to help him run the ranch--and ends up losing her heart to both."

My Review: I had high hopes for this one, strong female, cowboy, horses, ranch, Colorado; the makings of something great! While the story had great ideas and lines in it and the characters were fantastic, it was far too rushed. Falling in love within 3 days, doesn't work for me. If Rogers would have taken more time to let the story stretch its legs I would have really really loved this one. I would have loved to spend more time with all the characters.

My Rating: I would love to give this one a high rating, it had so much good going for it but was just rushed way to much.  It earns a rating of Two Paws and a Stump Wag.


  1. Aw! I'm sorry. I hate when a book has all the elements that make a great story but it falls flat.

    1. It is disappointing, but oh well, I guess its bound to happen from time to time.
