Claiming The Rancher's Heir by Maisey Yates BLOG TOUR ! Book Review


First of all I want to start by thanking Harlequin for providing me with an E-ARC and making me a part of this blog tour !

Disclaimer: I am in no way affected by this my opinions are my own.

Now the good stuff, a Christmas romance ! I am a huge lover of cheesy romance when I am in the mood, I don't want drama (or not much of it) I want feels and a HEA (happily ever after). It contains a couple of tropes that are worth mentioning because this is a fun thing to know, a pregnancy after a one night-stand, a bad at communicating and an enemies to lovers romance.  (Now the latter one is my favorite trope, or at least one of them ! and the bad at communication one of my most hated things in books, I hate when things could've been resolved if they had just talked or been honest …)

This is a love story between Wren and Creed, they are both winery owners and despised each other upon meeting one another. They decide however, to put their differences aside when it benefits them in their wineries to work together. There is A LOT of UST (unresolved sexual tension) between them, they can't help but be attracted to each other and  between their banter and barbed comments ultimately end up sleeping together. This resulted into an unexpected pregnancy, Creed wanting to stay in the unborn baby's life proposes a marriage of convenience with no-strings attached. As you can imagine their UST which, by the way, did not in anyway get resolved by their sex-capade. As they get to know each other more and more, they begin to fall for each other. They both suffer however from what I will qualify as, lack of healthy communication between people who are (and even if that was not the case) having a baby. Especially Creed, I don't know why author's do this, what is supposed to be attractive in lack of communication which results in misunderstandings... At least everything was resolved and nicely wrapped up by the end of the book.

The sex scene in this book are STEAMY, really like a LOT. I also loved that they had a palpable, evident chemistry, which is not always the case in these type of romances. The author did a really good job at making the romance not be annoying or lacking. It was an extremely entertaining and fast read which is exactly what I wanted this to be. A perfect addition to my Christmas reads of 2020.

 I really recommend it, if you are looking for a enemies to lover, Christmas read with an HEA this is for you !
4/5 stars
