Quinn Davis prefers to live her life quietly. She’s the stereotypical tomboy with two overprotective big brothers who have always looked out for her. Of course, it doesn’t help that her heart has already been hardened when it comes to devilishly handsome cowboys with silver tongues. That is, until Tate Montgomery comes riding back into town. Their first meeting, however, is far from something out of a fairy tale and only further convinces Quinn that men aren’t worth her time.
Growing up, the one time Tate ever truly felt at home was during the long, sweltering summer months he spent at his gram and paw’s farm in Pine Oak, Texas. Now, Tate has returned to his childhood sanctuary seeking a fresh start—but if he’s being entirely honest, he’s not just back for the Wranglers and Stetsons. During those summers, Quinn was a friend turned young love who Tate lost when life threw him a curveball and he cut all ties to his past, but all it takes is one glance at the raven-haired beauty, who he did his best to forget, for him to realize just how much he’s been missing…
Can two people who have stopped believing in love take a chance to find it in each other again? Or will the pain of the past prove too great a hurdle to conquer?

Fun, sexy, and full of feels, Kiss My Boots had me hooked.
Here’s what’s going on. Nine years ago, Tate broke Quinn’s heart when he walked out of her life without an explanation. Now, he’s back for good and he needs to make Quinn understand why he walked away and make her believe he still loves her. There’s no denying that Quinn’s still in love with Tate but she needs to figure out if she can trust him.
I love a good reunion romance and this one had all the right ingredients that had me turning the page. Although this one started out a bit slow for me as Quinn went back and forth trying to figure out if she wanted to let Tate back into life but once Quinn and Tate starting sharing the page, the pace picked up and I couldn’t put it down.
Quinn’s carrying around a lot of hurt and some abandonment issues. She knows she needs to make peace with the past but it’s easier said than done but she’s willing to try because she knows she’ll never love another man. Tate had a good reason for leaving but he still feels like the worst person in the world for having done it. He has a lot to prove to Quinn and her brothers and he’s willing to do whatever it takes.
I liked how real the romance felt. There was a lot of healing that needed to happen and some soul searching that needed to take place and rather than just jumping back into a relationship, Tate waited until Quinn figured things out.
While I enjoyed the book, I’m such a fan of Harper Sloan’s unique voice, I had a few problems.The first being the way Tate treated Ella, the woman he was sleeping with in Georgia. Even though it was a causal relationship to him, she developed feelings for him and he could have handled it with a bit more tact. The second was the conflict. The majority of the conflict was Quinn’s internal conflict. A few outside sources were thrown in, the call from Tate’s father and Ella arriving out of the blue but they weren’t even a blip on the radar.
Overall, I enjoyed this one and can’t wait to dive into the rest of the series.
