Kate loves her ranch. She’s been its
sole caretaker for years, she may be petite but that doesn’t
stop her from doing what she needs to do. Now she faces the
very real threat of losing her ranch to the bank. If that
isn’t enough of a problem someone seems to want to see her
lose her home faster because now Kate has major problems of
sabotage happening all over her ranch! What more can happen??
Enter Ben. He is an ex-Navy SEAL who
wants nothing more than a place to call his own. After hearing
about Kate’s foreclosure issues, Ben comes up with a
solution. He can pay off the foreclosure bill and gain half
the ranch and finally somewhere to lay his weary head.
Now if he can get Kate in the process life would be sweet!
Ben wants Kate with all that he is and he
knows that she wants him too but she’s skittish about being
with a man. Ben is also a little hesitant about being with a
woman as small and delicate as Kate. His first time with a
woman didn’t go too well and since then he’s been afraid of
hurting a woman with his generous endowment again. But love
can help overcome fears right? Ben loves Kate his
“Wildflower” and is willing to do anything to help ease her
fears, while at the same time easing any worries that he may
have about being intimate.
Ben’s Wildflower has an
interesting plot. Who is trying to run Kate off her ranch and
why? When I received Ben’s Wildflower for review, I truly
thought with an ex-Navy Seal I was going to get a humdinger of
a story. I was truly disappointed. While the plot of the
story is interesting, it was not enough to keep me enthralled.
Two major turn offs for me was the over use of the
nickname Wildflower, while Ben giving Kate that nickname is
cute, using it in general conversation or whenever her name is
mentioned was too much for me...it stopped being cute after a
while. The nemesis in the book, Clint, also had a nickname,
his was “little fucker”. When first reading it and all the
things Clint did and continued to do, the nickname for him
fit, completely. BUT I truly and honestly wanted to
throw my e-reader to the ground and stomp on it if I saw those
two nicknames one more time! Major turn off number two was
Ben’s obsession with how endowed he was, which drove me nuts.
Again, my opinion only, but if a man’s penis is so large that
when he gets erect he pokes over the top of his pants then he
need not tuck in his shirt every time he is near the object of
his affection. Saying that Kate is too delicate tells me that
Ben didn’t have much faith in whether or not she can take him
before he even tried. But I know it’s a story so I just kept
reading and didn’t get too worked up over it. Those two things
did drive me to the point of insanity. Despite that, I
continued reading because I liked the characters, main and
secondary. I enjoyed the storyline and wanted to see if Kate
and Ben would get together, if Clint’s evil machinations would
be stopped and overall to see how the story would end. I
found out my answers but I won’t give away spoilers.
Despite Ben’s Wildflower
having a good storyline I cannot honestly recommend this story
to my fellow readers, but I can say that I am more than
willing to give Ms. Lynne another try. Maybe her next story
will be more to my liking.
