Spurs & Stilettos by Ashley Johnson Blog Tour

Hope Trahan has everything she wants and everyone she needs…except her sister and someone who really is deserving of her. Who knew two separate events would turn everything completely upside down? When her best friend drags her down to the rodeo to help clear her head the last thing she expects is to meet a sexy, sweet talking cowboy. That’s not what she came for but fate had other things in mind.
Wesley Tyler owns two national titles and is riding his way to the next. The day he meets Hope, he knows there’s no going back. He soon learns Hope carries ghosts with her she can’t quite shake. She holds things she wishes she could let go of. Wesley just may hold the key to helping her overcome it all. Can he win her over and help mend her broken walls or will her past hold her down?

Review:  ~by April
     I enjoyed this story.  Please 18+ only please due to some sex scenes.  This was well written and I will be reading more from this author.
     Hope is in a very demeaning kind of relationship and finally something dramatic happens and she leaves.  She goes to her best friends, Amber.  I really loved Amber! I believe everyone needs a best friend like her.  Amber pulls her out one night and that is when Wesley shows.  OMG I love this cowboy!!!
     Wesley is a bareback rodeo rider.  He never expects to feel what he does for Hope and he tries to show her.  With the twists and turns that develop in this book, it definitely keeps you interested.
     There were times I wanted to yell at Hope to pull it together.  There were also times I was proud of her for standing her ground.  I think she found some backbone when she did not realize that she had it.  It was nice to see.
     I am giving this book 3 ½ stars.  It did keep me interested and I will be looking for more from this author. I do think that the formatting could use a little bit of work but it is nothing major and can be read around. Thank you

My favorite quotes had to be:
Hope: “I’m so killing you in your sleep.  I hope you know that you hussy.”
Wesley: “….If you were mine Hope, I’d never let you out of my sight and I’d always treat you like the princess you are.  You would be my whole world.”

I’m a bundle of nerves as I step out into the night air. It’s hard to not see him. He’s leaning against his truck. His back is to me and I almost don’t think he knows I am coming until he turns around to face me. My heart drops in my chest as I look into his eyes. We say nothing for a minute. We’re taking this time to rememorize each other, this time without the loud music and bright lights of the club. His hand reaches up and brushes against my cheek. I shudder trying to control myself. I missed his touch so much. I close my eyes praying this isn’t some dream but I open them and he’s here with his hand still on my cheek. “I miss you Hope.” He whispers. I won’t cry. I’m telling myself that. I’ll kick my own ass if I cry. I won’t be weak. “I miss you too,” I whisper almost inaudibly. We go back to not speaking. I can’t believe I’m standing outside in front of him. In front of the man who completely melts my heart. “Can you forgive me?” He leans in closing his mouth over mine and takes charge blowing my mind. I kiss him fiercely. “I can’t think of you being anyone else’s but mine Hope.” He says between kisses.
My name is Ashley Johnson and I live in Lake Charles, La with my fiance and our daughter. I graduated high school in 2003 and graduated college in 2008 with an associates degree in Criminal Justice. Now I just love to read and write and I hope ya'll enjoy it.
