USA Today bestselling author Caitlin Crews returns with Summer Nights with a Cowboy, another emotional romance in her stunning cowboy series Kittredge Ranch….

He doesn’t believe in love…

Traveling nurse Janie Atwood has come to Cold River to uncover old family secrets and maybe, if she’s lucky, find a new home. That the gorgeous, glowering sheriff next door thinks her caring for his elderly neighbor is a nefarious scheme is a bonus. Having never been anything but a good girl, Janie finds Zack Kittredge’s simmering suspicion an excellent reason to try being a little dangerous instead…

She doesn’t believe in squandering it…

Sheriff Zack Kittredge is okay with being… intense. He takes his loner status as seriously as he takes his responsibilities to protect Cold River. And he thinks cheerful Janie might be a threat to the town. But the more he gets to know her, the more he faces the truth—she’s brighter than sunshine and he’s like a moth to her flame. When Janie suggests he could use a few charm school lessons, he surprises them both by accepting. He doesn’t need help. But it’s clear he might need her…

Because the only thing hotter than the summer sun in the Rockies is the forbidden passion that burns between them…

“This steamy tale proves opposites attract.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review) on All Night Long with a Cowboy

It is one of my favorite series and of course yet another magnificent read. Coming back to Cold river and discovering Zack's story with so fun witty character like Janie. A beautiful love story with the wonderful writing style of Catlin Crews makes this one such an enjoyable read! Highly recommended
I volunteered to review an ARC of this book for NetGalley

I love Janie & Zack and how their story played out in such a clever way. It is very entertaining and I had some laugh out loud moments. I enjoy returning to Cold River and seeing how things are going with the couples from the other books in the series but it wouldn't be hard to follow along if you haven't read the series yet. I loved the ending and I had a sigh and smile when I closed the book.

Summer Nights with a Cowboy (Kittredge Ranch #3) by Caitlin Crews is the third book in the authors Kittredge Ranch series and is Zack and Janie Atwood's story. I loved how the stoic by the book Sheriff who meets Janie after she drenches him with her coffee falls had for the traveling nurse taking care of his neighbor Damaris (She's wonderfully funny and caring) . But his spidey senses something is off with Janie other than her smiles and offer to attend her charm school lessons can he find out the real reason she's in Cold River?

Janie Atwood loves her traveling nurse job and when she meets Zack Kittredge when she trips in the coffee shop somehow she knows that his reasons of why he is a loner and intense can be fixed by her lessons. But when he starts digging into why she came to Cold River and rescues her from Hall Hallow he'll be determined to find out but will he also lose his heart to her? When she finds out that her mother once spent time with in the town will she get the answers she seeks?

Zack Kittredge never wanted to take over the ranch and even though he's estranged from his father he loves his meddling siblings and how they are now making their own families all he wants to be is a loner in his house on the hill. But Janie Atwood will change all of that with her arrival next door with her smiles and the way she gets under his walls that he built to protect his heart. He knows that when he'll never let her leave town because he's falling in love with her.

I loved Zack and Janie's story. Each of them has had family drama in their past, and each has some secrets. But, together they find a way to bring out the truth and put things to rest.
Great characters, love the plot, and the conclusion to the series.

A cowboy sheriff? Yep, I’m there, and Zack did not disappoint! The eldest of the Kittredge clan, he carries some prominent scars of his childhood on his soul, so much so, he walked away from the ranch. Not his family, he still loves to meddle (and they with him) and be there for them, just away from his father. Reasons are slowly revealed over time and are heartbreaking, as his parents’ lives are finally explained. Janie grew up with everything but always found she was missing a piece. That was filled the moment she and Zack encountered each other. There two seemingly opposite people connect on a soulful level, giving the other what they didn’t realize they were missing. Strong, stubborn, determined, define them both, but underneath it all, there is a level of empathy that runs deep and true. Zack and Janie work with each other, it is doubtful either could work with anyone else. They have to do some soul searching within themselves to let themselves be happy, before they can be together, and it makes their HEA all the more poignant because of it <3
