Brock's Hellion by Nicole Austin. What can I say about this other than it is exactly what I've come to expect from Ms Austin and her absolutely fascinating Corralled series. The characters in these books are deep and captivating and so real you feel you know them by the time you finish reading their story. Beginning with Savannah's Vision, Ms Austin takes you on a roller coaster ride of emotions and hot cowboy sex that is impossible to put down.
This story is about Brock and Tink and what a tempestuous ride this one was! Like oil and water these two can't spend two minutes together without being ready to throttle each other. Brock can't stand the smart-mouthed, blonde haired pixie that strikes fire from him with simply a glance. Yet he can't help but feel there's something buried deep inside this little woman that calls to a part of him he's buried so very deep and that he's afraid to let out. The one thing he can't deny is the raging lust that they both seem to feel. What he needs to do is seriuosly avoid this little vixen and yet he find himself getting drawn deeper and deeper into her net as he tries to reach that soft, submissive girl he only catches glimpses of when she lets her guard down.
Tink can't stand Brock. He's obnoxious, demanding and over-bearing and he rubs every nerve she has raw with just a look. Yet there's something inside Brock, something he's hiding that draws her like a moth to a flame and as much as she can't stand him she lusts after what only he seems able to give her. She has to get away and stay away for the sake of her sanity.
This is one heck of a fun read, watching Brock and Tink react to each other like fighting cocks looking for an opening. You can't help but laugh, cry and want to scream in rage as their story unfolds. Once you begin it is impossible to stop and I read this one from front to back in one sitting and I just couln't put it down. These are such very strong and vibrant characters and their stories are so involved and complex that you really hate it when they come to an end. Even before I reached the end I was looking forward to the next book because I just didn't want this one to stop.

A book in the Corralled series.
Brock is cool, calm and in control. Except when it comes to the feisty hellion who pushes all his buttons for the sheer fun of watching his patience snap. Far worse than the intense desire to choke her is the alarming, all-consuming compulsion to tie Tink to his bed and fuck her into next week.
Tink is no wimpy damsel waiting for a big, strong man to rescue her or take over her life. Oh, hell no. She does her own thing, her own way, when she damn well feels like it. The last thing she wants or needs is some overbearing man bossing her around. Though she’d like to torture him with pleasure.
One night of explosive passion—starting with smokin’-hot lovin’ involving three men and one lucky woman—pushes Brock’s restraint past the limit. And hidden behind the cold-hearted bitch, he discovers a woman who longs to surrender to a man she can trust.
Come hell or high water, he’s going to be that man.
