About the book
Never challenge a cowboy in the courtroom…

Surveying the proposed site for a high-end golf course should have been a breeze for spunky Landscape Architect Sophie Smith. But when this born-and-bred city girl is suddenly—and quite literally—swept off her feet by a sexy cowboy on horseback, she realizes that the country life has some serious (and seriously steamy!) possibilities. That is, until she finds out exactly who her smokin’-hot wrangler really is.

Cowboy and Tribal lawyer Jack Lodge is desperately trying to block the development. And if that means playing hardball—and being every inch the shark lawyer—so be it. But Sophie is a distraction he didn’t expect. A distraction that makes his blood burn.

Two different worlds. Two opposing sides. And when they finally give into the exquisite temptation, the consequences will shake the foundations of both of their lives…
My Thoughts:
Against the Wall was a fun heat scorching book.  It made me long for a cowboy of my own and I discovered that cowboys can have a very dark and sexy side that all women should experience!

Sophie, needing to help save her Uncles business, heads to Montana to try and win over the local tribe and hopefully start construction on golf course that she designed.  What she didn't count on was a very small town that talks about everything and the town lawyer being more than she could handle.  The story spirals completely out of control with some of the best steamy scenes I have ever read and a wonderful duo that put the spice in spicy.

I really enjoyed this story.  Entangled's Brazen line is quickly becoming one of my favorites and Against the Wall is another great addition.  Sophie and Jake were amazing together.  I loved how Jake was very much the alpha male and I was honestly quite shocked at a few scenes with him.  When I think cowboy I think gentlemanly and down home, but Jake was well he was part aw shucks and part Fifty!  He was very dominate and I have to admit I loved him ha!  Sophie was a great counter to his alpha.  She let him get his way most of the time, but she did have a fire in her that sparked every now and then that gave him a run for his money.  I would have liked to have seen her make him beg just a little bit more, but I can't complain because she was awesome.

I did have a few issues with the overall storyline.  There is something that happens that I can't say, but I don't think this issue was dealt with the right way in my opinion.  I wanted more of a reaction from Sophie in the beginning and it all felt a little reckless.  I wouldn't have minded if this happened at the end of the book as I think it would have fit better.  I wanted Jake to learn from his past not recreate it.  This issue is a big one for me so I am going to have to knock 2 suns from my rating.  My other issue that bugged me throughout the story was the Jake's daughter kept disappearing!  He was the devoted father and that made me love him even more, but that little girl was never around!  Every time Sophie and Jake would start to get hot and heavy I kept looking ahead wondering if they would get caught.  Lelia (Jake's daughter) must have had a spare room at her grandma's house lol!

Other than that this book was a lot of fun and I will definitely check out more from this author!  I am really hoping that we get a few more stories set in this world.  Quinn, Colton, and Dawn were amazing secondary characters and I would love to see their HEAs!
