How to Rope a Real Man (Catcher Creek #3) by Melissa Cutler #Review

 Title: How to Rope a Real Man
Author: Melissa Cutler
Series: Catcher Creek #3
Release Date: May 6, 2014

Against all odds, the Sorentino sisters saved their family's rundown New Mexico ranch, but the youngest has a dream that just may ruin their hard-earned peace--unless a certain sexy cowboy lawyer changes her mind. . .
Jenna Sorentino is as independent as they come. Despite her wild past, she's grown up enough to keep quiet about the identity of her baby's daddy, go to night college--and hide her plan to escape tiny Catcher Creek. She's also stopped dreaming of happily ever after--except in the case of gorgeous, rugged, Santa Fe native Matt Roenick. Too bad the oil rights attorney acts like he barely knows she's alive. . .
Matt knows only too well that Jenna's alive--in fact, she's driving him crazy with desire. But Matt's got his reasons for resisting her. And when her son's father shows up, those reasons multiply. Trouble is, Jenna's secrets are more complicated than he imagined, and forgetting her isn't as easy as he'd hoped. Matt knows life can be messy as hell. For Jenna, maybe it's time he got dirty...
Five Stars

Hope to Rope a Real Man is my first time visiting Catcher Creek. Wow! Melissa Cutler immediately caught me up with the latest events happening with the Sorentino sisters. This story mainly surrounds the youngest sister, Jenna, and she's helped plan her sister's wedding. The day before the wedding, the situation turns a little desperate. It's good that the lawyer friend she's been crushing on is there to lend a helping hand. Ahh...Matt Roenick! Can I add the words “dreamy” and “romantic” to his description of being a “sexy cowboy lawyer”?
As a newbie to this series, I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this story. Ms. Cutler tackles some sensitive issues throughout the plot. One of these issues centers around Matt, and I appreciate that she offers the male's perspective on this particular subject as the male's emotions regarding this matter are often skimmed in stories. My heart broke for Matt when I found out why he doesn't date single moms. Jenna is a single mom to an adorable little boy, which makes this whole situation entirely sticky. I loved Jenna's mind-set and inner strength from the start. She truly just wants to make a good life for her and her son.
How to Rope a Real Man is filled with family, friendship, heart-tugging realistic situations, and even has a little suspense. Matt and Jenna together? Oh yeah, it gets pretty steamy! Deliciously steamy! Thank you, Melissa Cutler, for creating fun scenes for them!

About the author
Melissa Cutler knows she has the best job in the world, dividing her time between her dual passions for writing sexy contemporary romances and edge-of-your-seat romantic suspense for Harlequin, Penguin, St. Martin’s Press, and Kensington Books. She was struck at an early age by an unrelenting travel bug and is probably planning her next vacation as you read this. When she’s not globetrotting, she’s enjoying Southern California’s flip-flop wearing weather and wrangling two rambunctious kids.


  1. heart warming books are always good esp with great even tumultuous family dynamics. It's the kind that we can relate to the most isn't it?

    1. I totally agree, Braine! When we can connect to the story in even a small way, it makes it an even more satisfying reading experience. Thanks for stopping by!
