Josie Landford is finally free of a twenty-year oppressive marriage and her son has gone away to college. She’s decided that it’s time for her to live out her sexual fantasies with a rodeo cowboy. With that goal in mind, she attends her very first rodeo and finds her ideal candidate in number twenty-seven, Rex West.

Steer wrestler and ranch owner, Rex West, doesn’t know what to think of Josie. He had been married for almost twenty years before his wife left him. He's never had a woman bluntly tell him that she would like to have an affair with him, Rex is not sure what to think of such forwardness. In his opinion, men are supposed to make the first move.

Josie may know exactly what she wants from Rex - scorching sex, but his old-fashioned ideals aren’t going to allow for her to take the lead in any relationship that develops between them. He believes in courtship, even if it is just a short one before going to bed with a woman. Josie would rather try to keep their encounters sexual but Rex’s insistence on opening doors and dinner dates is causing a riot of emotions that she isn’t ready for and, quiet honestly, didn’t anticipate. After their first dinner date, Josie and Rex end up back at her place. Surprisingly, rather than jumping into bed, Josie becomes nervous. She has no doubt that she wants Rex but first she wants to establish some ground rules. Her first rule is that they will not have a one-night stand. The second rule - no strings attached. She lets him pick rule number three, his rule - one night a week. What will happen when their one night a week affair turns out not to be enough?

JOSIE’S HEARTBREAKER is the final book in Sage Burnett’s RODEO COWBOY series. Don’t worry if you haven’t read the first two stories, each of the books can be read independently. I particularly liked JOSIE'S HEARTBREAKER because the main characters are more mature; both have been in long term marriages and have no qualms about who they are or what they want from each other. Rex’s gentlemanly qualities quickly won me over, I was continuously tantalized with his rough and ready cowboy attitude. The combination of the two traits is enough to keep any girl salivating! Josie had a simple affair all planned out; an affair devoid of complicated emotional attachment. Rex turns out to be unlike any man she’s ever known and she’s not sure how to deal with her developing feelings. This is truly a fun tale that will feed your fantasies about cowboys, yet leave you hungering for more.
