Done and Dusted
Done and Dusted | Lyla Sage
6 posts | 8 read | 3 to read
She's off-limits, but he's never been good at following the rules. For the first time in her life, Clementine "Emmy" Ryder has no idea what she's doing. She's done everything on her to-do list. She left her small hometown, went to college, and made a name for herself doing her favorite thing: riding horses. But when an injury results in an obstacle she can't overcome, Emmy leaves behind a career, an apartment, and a boyfriend for the hometown she spent her whole life trying to escape. Luke Brooks is Meadowlark's most notorious bad boy, bar owner, and bachelor. He's also the unofficial fifth member of the Ryder family, who spent his entire childhood antagonizing Emmy, the youngest Ryder sibling. It's been years since he's seen his best friend's little sister, but when she walks into his bar and back into his life, he can't take his eyes off her. Brooks takes it upon himself to get to the bottom of why Emmy returned to Meadowlark and what happened to put out the perpetual fire in her eyes. But first, he needs Emmy to take him up on his offer to be friends. An offer that has nothing to do with the fact that he can't stop thinking about her. At least, that's what he tells himself. As things between Emmy and Brooks heat up, it's getting more difficult for him to keep his hands off of her. Can he help her get her spark back? Or will they both go up in flames?

These contemporary western romances were cute enough, but the prose was far too simplistic (bordering on juvenile) to really enjoy the reading experience. The romance/plot felt a bit more developed in the 2nd book, but they are both so short that any strong character development was impossible. I do love the pulpy western-style covers (definitely what convinced me to try), and I could see them being adapted into Hallmark/Netflix-style Rom-Coms.

I‘m not sure why I picked this one up. It wasn‘t on my TBR.. I must have just come across it scrolling on Libby.

This is a cowboy/western romance. It‘s set on a ranch in Wyoming. Emmy is a professional horse rider and has a riding scare so she comes back home. Luke is her brother‘s best friend and she‘s looking at him a bit differently now. She has ADHD and it talks about her triggers and things like that.

I love a slow-burn romance but it's been a while since I've read one that I enjoyed from opening line to the last one.
Her Emmy and Brooks had me hooked. Sage has a great way of writing that really showed through the more I read, even as I tried hard to pace myself, but this one was too good and it gave me what I needed.

3.75/5 ⭐️ My first western romance was a sweet and steamy one. One thing that really bothered me was the male MC calling the female MC "sugar" a million times ?

I've been playing around with some picture editing apps and made this! #LitsyCrafters

What a FANTASTIC small town romance, featuring a successful cowgirl going through a rough patch and struggling to (literally) get back in the saddle, and a hunky cowboy (plus older brother's best friend) who suddenly starts to see her in a whole new light when she takes a break from the rodeo circuit and comes home to Wyoming. Don't let the cover fool you - there's plenty of delectable steam and dirty talk 🤭. Only negative is that it's a debut 😭
