About the Author
Read an Excerpt
The list of things Jason would rather be doing that day was as long as his arm. In no particular order he'd rather be:
Mucking out the stalls.
Mowing the lawn.
Re-shingling the roof.
Repainting the barn.
Cleaning the gutters.
Having his head examined.
Any of those would be a lot easier than what he was doing now.
How in the hell had he let Luke talk him into this? Stripping down bare- ass naked for a calendar shoot? And for a literary charity? Did that make any damn sense? What books and naked men had to do with each other he didn't know and probably never would. But he'd told Luke he'd do it so here he was, doing it.
"Luke, if this goes viral," Jason muttered to himself, "you're a dead man."
Jason could only hope and pray his mother didn't find out about this. He was number one on her shit list already for moving halfway across the country. If she found out her baby boy was baring all for the whole world to see, she'd fly all the way from Montana to Kentucky just to tell him he'd broken her heart and shamed the family name. And his father would drive there for the pleasure of dragging him behind the nearest woodshed. Didn't matter he was twenty-nine years old. Dad would tan his hide worse than the time he put a garter snake in his sister's underwear drawer when he was seven.
And he'd probably deserve it.
The drive to the Bourbon County Public Library only took about half an hour but Jason managed to stretch it out to thirty-five by laying off the gas. He didn't want to get there early. He didn't want to be late either. What he wanted was to get it over with as soon as possible, and then pretend this whole stupid thing had never happened.
Until the calendars came out, of course, and everyone and their grandmother knew what his ass looked like.
Jason tried not to think about that part as he pulled into the library parking lot. He parked, turned off his truck, grabbed his hat off the seat, and got out, trying hard not to slam the door behind him. He mostly succeeded. His truck, a red Ford older than he was, needed a little extra elbow grease to get the door to latch. Least that's what excuse he gave himself for hitting the door a little harder than necessary.
He was supposed to ask for a gal named Simone. Apparently, she was the photographer they'd hoodwinked into flying all the way down to Kentucky to take his picture. Luke also told him to "be nice," which Jason had taken as a personal slight. When had Luke ever known Jason Waters to be rude to a woman? Not her fault he didn't want to do this, he told Luke. Luke's fault, maybe.
Jason took the library's front steps two at a time. With one hand he opened the glass door and with the other he removed his hat. The librarian at the front desk smiled at him in greeting. He gave her a smile back that he hoped didn't look as fake as it felt. If he'd been on his way to the firing squad, he might have smiled the same way.
He mentally added standing in front of a firing squad to his list of things he'd rather be doing that day.
Unfortunately, Luke hadn't told him where to go once he got to the library, which meant he had to ask. He walked up to the desk and started to make a fool of himself by asking where he was supposed to go to get naked pictures of himself taken when he heard a woman's soft voice behind him.
"Are you Jason Waters?"
He turned and came face to face with a woman who had to be this New York photographer Luke told him about.
For starters, the girl had pink hair. All pink. Cotton candy pink and curling around her smiling face. She also had tattoos on both arms and a ring in her nose. If she was a local, he was Garth Brooks.
"I am, ma'am. Are you Miss Levine?"
"Simone, please," she said. "And I think that's the first time I've ever been ma'amed in my life."
She grinned at him, and even with all the crazy colored hair and the ring in her nose, Jason had to admit to himself she was a pretty lady. Bright smiling eyes. Good full lips. And in her tight jeans and white t-shirt that rode high enough he could see three or four inches of soft pale belly, he could tell she had a really nice figure. Not that he wanted to notice any of that if he was taking his clothes off for her. There was a time and place for enjoying a woman's curves, and naked in front of a camera for a charity calendar was not the time or the place.
"Habit," he said. "If you don't like it, I'll try not to do it again. But if I slip, I apologize."
"It's all right," she said, smiling even wider. He must have amused her though he had no idea how or why. "I kind of like it. Are you ready? I have the room all set up."
Jason took a deep breath and gestured with his hat for her to lead the way.
"We really appreciate you agreeing to be in the calendar," she said as they walked past stacks of books and up the stairs to the second floor. "Can I call you Jason or do you prefer Mr. Waters?"
"Call me whatever you like," he said.
"Luke Bradley was supposed to be our Mister November," she said. "But he's having some kind of surgery, right?"
Jason nodded. Luke had gotten thrown from a bull last month and slipped a disc in his back that needed correcting. He was in a Montana hospital right now, flirting with the nurses. Ah, could have been worse. Jason and Luke had both been pallbearers for fellow cowboys.
"It's nice of you to step in for him," she said. "He said you're prettier than he is anyway."
Jason laughed softly. "That's not saying much."
"He did tell me he's got more scar tissue than regular tissue on his body these days," Simone said. "What's that called? An occupational hazard?"
"You don't ride bulls if you want to stay pretty," Jason said.
"That why you quit?" she asked as they reached a set of dark wood double doors.
Jason shrugged. "Quit for a lot of reasons. Wanting to meet my grandkids was only one of them."
"Well, I read online you were the world champion two years in a row. Nothing wrong with going out on top."
Jason didn't say anything to that. He just opened the door for her.
"Not much of a talker, I see," Simone said as she stepped inside the room and waved her hand at two leather chairs sitting by a window.
"Not much to say," Jason said.
"Well, I'll do most of the talking," she said. "You want to sit?"
She eyed him with a twinkle in her eyes.
"You are the real deal, aren't you?" she asked as she sat down in the nearest chair. He sat in the one opposite her, his dark brown cowboy hat on his knee. "Ma'am? Opening the door for me? Waiting for me to sit before you'll sit?"
Jason only smiled. If his parents had taught him anything worthwhile it was humility. And to keep his damn mouth shut if he didn't have anything to say.
"I was hoping we could talk a few minutes before we started the shoot," she said. "I know it's not easy taking your clothes off in front of a stranger. Especially when that stranger's holding a camera. I thought maybe we ought to get comfortable with each other first."
"Whatever you like."
"First, let me ask ... do you really want to do this?" she asked.
"I said I would."
"That's not what I asked."
She sat back in the big chair and pulled her legs in and crossed them.
"I said I'd do it," Jason said. "And I do want to keep my word."
"I hope Luke Bradley didn't force you into this," she said.
He shook his head. "Luke couldn't force me into a pie-eating contest when I'm dying for pie. We're old friends," Jason said. "That's why I'm hard on him. He's a good man. If he thinks this is a cause worth his time, then it's worth mine."
Simone was still staring at him like he was some kind of alien. Maybe he was to a gal from New York with pink hair and a nose ring.
"These calendars raise a ton of money and awareness for their causes," she said. "You can't find a much better cause than literacy. It's very nice of you to agree to this even if you aren't in love with the idea."
"What gave it away?" he asked.
"You're about to destroy the brim of your hat," she said. "I hope that's crushable velvet you've been crushing for the past five minutes."
Jason looked down at his hat brim. She was right. He'd twisted it so hard it would have torn had it been made of any material other than crushable velvet. He laughed at himself and groaned quietly.
"Never done this sort of thing before," he said. "That's all."
"Getting naked for a stranger and getting photographed is a big deal," she said. "It's not for everyone. And I can already tell you're kind of uncomfortable with it, which makes me uncomfortable. I like willing partners. Not people gritting their teeth the whole time."
"I'm here to do the job," he said. "I don't have to love it."
"This isn't a job, Jason. You're not getting paid."
"Still, I said I'd do it. I'll do it."
She looked at him without saying anything. Then she smiled again. He'd never expected a New Yorker to smile so much. He'd always heard they were tough cookies up there. Simone didn't seem like a tough cookie, though. More like bubblegum.
"Let me show you some of the pictures I've taken for previous calendars so you know what you're getting into. They're not X-rated, I promise. Pretty tame."
She picked up a leather binder from a bag next to the chair and flipped through some pages.
"You, uh, take a lot of pictures of naked men?" he asked.
"I have," she said. "I've done a couple different naked charity calendar shoots. You kind of have to have very special people skills for that job. And I've done a few boudoir shoots with women. And I do some fetish photography myself. I know what I'm doing. Usually."
"Interesting line of work you're in," he said.
"That's pretty rich coming from a professional bull rider."
"Retired professional bull rider," he said.
"Can't argue," he said.
"Have you ever done any modeling before?" she asked.
"Not modeling," he said. "I wouldn't call it that. But you have to get your picture taken a lot when you're on the rodeo circuit. Interviews and that sort of thing. And, you know, some other stuff."
"Other stuff? Like what?" she asked.
Jason didn't like to talk about these things, but he didn't like being rude to a woman, either. And maybe she needed to know this stuff for her job.
"I did a thing," he said.
"A thing? What kind of thing?"
"You know Levi's?" he asked.
"Levi's the jeans? Yeah, I've heard of them," she said. He could tell she was trying not to laugh.
"They had these new style jeans with extra rivets. You know, for rough wear? They thought a bull rider was the right guy to show them off."
She narrowed her eyes at him. "Jason, you were a Levi's jeans model?"
"I guess you could say that," he said. "The ads were in some magazines."
"In magazines? Which magazines?"
"Oh, I dunno. A few of them. Time, I think. Maxim. Details. Um ... Men's Health. People. Is that what you mean by modeling experience?"
"I would say having a Levi's ad in Time, Maxim, People, Details and Men's Health counts as modeling experience, yeah. Anything else? Cover of Vogue, maybe? Calvin Klein underwear model? Victoria's Secret Angel?"
"Ah ... Ford commercial," he said. Simone was, for some reason, rubbing her forehead. "I really liked their new F-150s so I agreed to do a few TV spots for them. I doubt you got 'em in New York, though."
"Levi's and Ford trucks. Those are major ad campaigns, Jason," she said. "Like ... the most major."
He only shrugged. "Paid the bills."
She took a long deep breath. "Well," she said, "guess you're old hat at this then. Makes my job easier."
"Nah. Levi's and Ford wanted me to keep my clothes on. This is brand new to me. Just talk to me like I'm dumb as a box of rocks."
"All right," she said. "I can do that. Well ..." She flipped through her portfolio to a different section and showed him a picture. "I was thinking of posing you like this," she said. He liked how professional she sounded. This wasn't some kind of joke or come-on to her. Just a job. Just a job like the jeans thing and the Ford commercials. "This is my friend Griffin. He was in a calendar a couple years ago."
She showed him the photograph of a tall, muscular guy with a tan, black armband tattoos, and a big grin on his face holding up a book called The Red.
"He an athlete?" Jason asked. He wasn't sure what he was supposed to say. He didn't go around eyeballing naked men that often. Though Simone was right. You could see his side, hip, and thigh but that was about it. Pretty tame stuff.
"Trust fund baby," Simone said. "But he does a ton of charity work. And he coaches a well-known roller derby team in New York. The theme of the calendar that year was Notable New Yorkers, and they were raising money for a new library in Queens."
Jason narrowed his eyes at the photograph. "Am I supposed to smile like that?" Jason wasn't much of a smiler, not when he was naked with a camera pointed at him.
"Griffin wasn't supposed to smile like that. He was supposed to be reading and looking serious. But his boyfriend made a joke off-camera, and I caught him mid-laugh. It was the best shot in the set so we ran it."
"All right," Jason said. "That's not too bad. Mom might let me come home for Christmas after all."
"Conservative family?" Simone asked.
"You could say that."
"And you're doing it anyway?"
"I guess I am."
"You sure about it?"
Was he sure? He'd told himself the only reason he'd agreed to take Luke's place in the calendar was because Luke had asked him. But maybe there was a little part of him that wanted to take a risk, to put a little distance between the person everyone thought he was and the real Jason Waters, whoever the hell that was.
"Sure as I'll ever be," he said.
She gave him that searching look, but didn't question him anymore. She flipped through her album and showed him a few more photos going in the calendar. A basketball player with the ball in one hand blocking the view of his business while in his other hand he held a copy of The Basketball Diaries. A famous quarterback had his helmet across his lap while he read Friday Night Lights.
"Thoughts?" she asked. "Any pose look better to you than the others?"
"The first one's fine. Just get me from the left, not the right. I got some scars."
"Not a problem. I'll get your good side," she said. "You have any questions?"
He shook his head.
"Nothing?" she said.
"Can we get this over with?" he asked.
She looked at him again, another long searching look.
"If you want to call the whole thing off, say the word," she said.
"What word?" he asked, a dumb joke to hide his nerves.
"Hmm ..." she said and smiled. "You own a horse?"
"Of course," he said. "I retired from bulls, not from horses."
"What's your horse's name?"
"Ah, the one I usually ride around the farm, he's called Rusty."
"Great," she said. "Rusty can be your safe word. Anytime you want to call the whole thing off, say 'Rusty' and I'll turn my back and you'll get dressed and leave right away, no hard feelings. It's only April and we don't have to get the photos to the printer for months. We can find another guy to take your slot if you decide this won't work for you."
"It's real nice of you to say all that," he said. "And I appreciate it. But I'd like to just get on with it if you don't mind."
Simone raised her hands in surrender. "You're the boss."
She stood up first, and a second later he followed.
"Bathroom's down the hall if you need to go. Nobody wants to be naked and have to pee at the same time. I've got a changing screen right here," she said, pointing at a three-panel screen set up in the corner. "There's a towel back there you can wrap around your waist. I'll turn my back while you drop the towel and get into position. I'll photograph you at this angle," she said, demonstrating with her own body the position he'd need to stand in while she took pictures. "Side view with your thigh kind of forward. If we're careful, I might not see anything you don't want me to see. Although I hope you won't be upset if I do. It's just a human body. We all have them. Our bodies are nothing to be ashamed of."
He gave her a slight smile as he went behind the screen. He felt stupid hiding to change when she'd be seeing what the good Lord gave him in two minutes anyway. Still, nice of her to try to make him feel more comfortable.
As he unbuttoned his checkered red and black shirt, he heard her giggle. It was a nice laugh, pretty and girlish. He didn't expect women with nose rings to laugh so cute. Clearly he needed to adjust his prejudices.
"Something funny?" he asked.
"Oh, nothing," she said.
"I thought it was funny that I said 'Rusty' could be your safe word," she said.
"And why's that funny?"
"Because," she said, "you didn't ask me what a safe word is. You already knew."CHAPTER 2
Simone knew immediately she'd made a mistake by saying that. Behind the screen, Jason was silent. She couldn't even hear him moving around anymore.
"I'm sorry," she said quickly. "I didn't mean to imply anything. I just thought it was funny that, thanks to certain books and movies that will remain nameless, even cowboys in Kentucky know what safe words are."
Simone held her breath and listened, hoping and praying Jason was still undressing back there.(Continues…)

A new author to me and I have no idea why. This is Jason "Still" Waters' and Simone Levine’s story; Jason is a retired “World Champion Bull Rider”. This was a short, quick read that had me invested from chapter one. It is within the realm of the Original Sinners series but I was able to read this as a stand alone not having read any of Ms.Reisz previous books. Jason and Simone appear to have nothing in common and yet they click. Both Jason and Simone are interested in exploring kink and it is this that initially bonds them together. Jason has been searching for something although he has no idea what that “something” is and is rather lonely. His parents are a nightmare and he knows that they will be horrified by his posing as Mr November for a charity calendar. Simone is the photographer handling the shoot, she is also a pro-sub. It is obvious to Simone that Jason is intrigued and she offers to help him learn about the lifestyle. Jason was a sweet, gibing man searching for the unknown and in Simone it seems he has found what he is seeking. The chemistry between Jason and Simone was intense and I enjoyed reading as the two explored the world of kink. This was a fun, hot read and was easy to read. I received this book in exchange for an honest review from the publisher through Netgalley.
Jason "Still" Waters' life looks perfect from the outside—money, fame, and the words "World Champion Bull-Rider" after his name. But Jason has a secret, one he never planned on telling anybody...until he meets Simone. She's the kinky girl of his dreams...and his conservative family's worst nightmare. This was a fun and spicy read. I liked the change-up since most cowboy books keep it pretty vanilla. I liked both main characters. I recommend. **I voluntarily read and reviewed this book
Oh dear. I have such mixed feelings about this book, it's hard to know where to begin. First of all, I love Tiffany Reisz's work. However, due to some unfortunate content in this book, I feel she has broken my trust; I know a LOT about horses. I've had many of them. I've owned, trained, showed and generally loved them for much of my life. I tell people sometimes (jokingly) that I "grew up in a barn." So when an author describes something about horses or training horses with enough authority that the general reader would take it for fact, and yet I find it false, I have a hard time believing anything else in the book. The whole part about Jason training horses for kids in need is very sweet and shows he's a good guy. However, TR makes a big point, not once but twice about a horse licking a treat off someone's hand. Horses do like to lick tasty things now and then, and they have very specialized muscles in their tongues. However, they do NOT eat that way. A horse would use its lips or teeth to pick up a cookie. Is this a picky detail? Absolutely. However, she also tells us in great detail about dom/sub practices about which I know nothing. I figured they were all true, but now I wonder if I've been just as badly misinformed. Horses are not big dogs. They do not behave like dogs. Another huge issue I have with Jason's training is that he gives a pony to a kid who has never been on a horse before. He doesn't make sure she has some serious riding lessons first. He just says to her that the pony is now hers, and to take good care of it. THIS IS UNCONSCIONABLE behavior. No one would take that much time, effort and expense and just turn the kid loose with the horse. Does she have ANY idea how to care for it? Who knows? Since she doesn't seem to, it made me very uncomfortable. There are plenty of other horse-related details that are faulty, but I'm not going to list them all. My point is, although the basic story is rather sweet. and the characters are nice people, I had such a falling out with the author at around the midway point in the book, I had a hard time enjoying the rest of it. My favorite parts of the book were when Eleanor and Søren show up. It was like visiting with old friends. I loved their humor and their conversations. Sadly, there wasn't enough for my taste. When I got to the very end, I discovered this was previously a novella that had been published with a different title. So, apparently, the author saw fit to expand the story into more of a full-length novel. Perhaps this explains some of her reluctance to flesh out various parts of the book, but it doesn't excuse making up stuff and foisting it off as factual information. There is much to enjoy about the book, and I wish I could have given it 4 or 5 stars, but I just cannot do it. Thank you, NetGalley for providing an ARC in exchange for my honest review.
Picture Perfect is a perfect blend of sweet, sexy, sassy, and naughty! Jason "Still" Waters, former World Champion Bull Rider, now leads a quiet, lonely life on a horse farm in Kentucky. Raised a true, conservative gentleman, he struggles to keep a tight rein on his darker desires . . . until he meets Simone, a quirky, pink-haired photographer (think naked men + calendars!) and a pro-sub and "sub" sub (think Soren!). Simone is sweet, loving, giving, and confident in her own skin. She knows who she is and what she wants and has no qualms about going after it. When their paths cross at a calendar shoot, sparks fly - each recognizing something in the other that causes Jason's darker fantasies to roar to life as he considers whether he can take what he wants and still be a "good" man. He didn't fear climbing on the back of a pissed-off bull dead set on goring him to death, but can he accept the consequences of coming out of the closet as a Dominant? Including losing his family's respect? Picture Perfect is a story of self-awareness and acceptance of ones self - of giving yourself permission to explore your own sexuality freely without worry of condemnation by others. The plot line isn't complicated, but it delivers an encouraging message of hope, love, and peace that comes with embracing ones inner self and finding the strength to overcome fear of adversity. As always, Reisz delivers a story that sizzles with sexual chemistry and desire, but more than that, she opens the door to the heart and soul of these two characters and invites readers in to witness first-hand their inner struggles and turmoil. An appearance by two of the OS masters, Soren & Nora, is sure to delight fans of the series as will the bonus short story "Flogging 101" with a lesson in flogging-done-right delivered by Soren. This is "light" erotica at its best served up with a healthy side of romance and humor! A Must Read!
3 stars This was my first book by Tiffany Reisz but I’m certainly familiar with the Original Sinners books so I was looking forward to this book, especially with it’s captivating book blurb. This story is about Jason, a 29 year old, famous and retired world champion bull rider who is from an extremely conservative family and living in Kentucky. And Simone, a pink haired, tattooed part-time photographer and part-time pro submissive from NYC. They meet at a calendar shoot Jason agreed to be in to help a friend out and one thing leads to another, and Simone finds out that Jason is a dominant who has been fantasizing about dominating, spanking and ordering around a slave but he’s never been able to do anything about it cause he struggles with the fact that he’s been raised to treat women well and he was beaten by his conservative dad if he ever did anything disrespectful to women. Simone decides to help him explore his dominant side in a safe way and they end up forming a relationship and quickly fall for eachother, all the while having some smoking hot, kinky sex. Now although I do think this book can be read as a stand alone, I did feel like I missed some of the book feels by meeting Master S And mistress Nora who are from the other Original Sinners books. I probably would have enjoyed their cameos much more had I read them. I must admit that although this book was interesting, I had a hard time connecting to the MC’s. Jason felt kinda stiff and just lacked the kind of passion I love in my books. And although Simone was a little more emotional, the whole thing between them kind of felt clinical. Their “love” happened so fast I barely blinked too and I just didn’t have enough time to really connect with the characters and that took away for me. They fell in love so damn quick yet Jason was a bit flat and very hesitant yet bossy and Simone, all proud of her sub job and having clients only, threw it out the window in a hot second and fell totally into Jason. I did enjoy the book to a certain extent but I simply couldn’t connect with the characters and ultimately worked to get through it. I wish I had enjoyed it more than I did as I had high hopes but not everything that I come across is gonna be a winner for me. I did enjoy Tiffany Reisz’s writing style and I’ll be giving another of her books a try :) An ARC was generously provided in exchange for an honest review
I hesitate to call an erotic romance by Ms. Reisz sweet, but so much of this story truly is! Picture Perfect Cowboy has a different feeling to it than many of the others in the series…from their meet cute (nude charity calendar photo shoot in a library; OMG, I love it!) to Simone and Jason’s growing relationship (and her tutelage of him into the lifestyle) to all the bits with Cupcake, the therapy pony—this story had so many moments :) (It also veered a bit too close to insta-love for comfort; though I liked Simone and Jason so much—I mean, check out those eyes! And he buys a little girl a pony to help her recover from cancer! Did I mention the calendar shoot for literacy? Plus, they really are adorable together—that I managed to forgive that aspect without too much trouble. It is there, though, so if that’s going to be a deal breaker for you, consider yourself warned.) Though set in the Original Sinners universe, this is one story that really could be considered a standalone. Simone has spent time with most of the series regulars, and refers to a few of them throughout (Nora and Soren make small appearances—and return for the bonus short story at the end) but if you aren’t yet familiar with their stories, you should still be fine here. This book definitely could serve as an intro to Ms. Reisz’s work, as long as you keep in mind that most of her other books have an harder edge to them overall than this one does. Rating: 4 stars / B+ I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
Another great edition to the sinners series and who would have believed that a cowboy would fit into this society. After retiring as a bull rider Jason is finally living the life he wants away from his meddling parents but he is still lonely and looking for something. When he is asked to be Mr November for a charity calander the thought scares him to death but he gets over his fear for a good cause. Somine the photographer helps him with his fear of getting naked after all she is a sub and nakedness is nothing to her, when the session finishes Jason admits he is interested in the world of subs and doms. Simone agrees to go to his ranch to introduce him to the world. As they spend time together she introduces him to her world and they start to fall for one another but do they have any chance at a relationship when they belong in different worlds This is a well written story that drew me in and kept me reading until the very last page now I will go and read more books in this series
Picture Perfect Cowboy was so much fun to read! Sexy cowboy Jason “Still” Waters was raised to be the perfect, conservative southern gentleman, yet he’s at odds with his deepest personal desires. Meeting Simone at a photo shoot, the confident photographer with pink hair flips his world upside down. This unlikely couple finds they have more in common than meets the eye. Their love story is a journey of courage and acceptance. This story is everything I love about romance. And while the heat level is off-the-charts hot, it still shows a sweeter side of the Original Sinners world—though it can definitely be read as a standalone. For readers who have yet to take a chance on BDSM or are new to Tiffany Reisz, this would be a great story to start with. I highly recommend!
You might see BOOK 10 and think to yourself you don’t have time to invest in the series. This can be an intimidating series but have no fear, PICTURE PERFECT COWBOY can be read as a complete stand alone. Simone and Jason’s story has everything I’ve come to expect from a Tiffany Reisz novel. It’s a sad state of affairs when in 2018 that other people are still so hung up on other’s private life and lifestyle choices. Jason comes from a conservative family and has been struggling with his desires that go against everything he was ever taught. When Jason meets the sexy, pink haired photographer, Simone, she shows him it’s ok to be himself and also what he’s been missing. While PPC can be as a standalone, I loved seeing Mistress Nora and Mister S again. It made me remember how much I loved THE SIREN and my need to finish the series.
5 Stars Review by Leah Late Night Reviewer Up All Night w/ Books Blog Southern Charm with a spanking. A little bit of country, A little bit of kink. Picture Perfect Cowboy by Tiffany Reisz, the USA Today bestselling author of the Romance Writers of America RITA®-winning Original Sinners, is freaking HOT! Panty melting HOT! I don’t think I have read a Cowboy with a kinky side before and I am SOLD!! I could not put the book down. Jason “Still” Waters, a retired bull rider is a good ole southern boy but has a kinky side he does not know exactly what to do with... yet. Helping out a friend, Jason finds himself posing nude for a charity calendar photo shoot. Walking into the library all he can think about is his family is going to disown him if they ever see this calendar. Simone has a wild side, not only is she the photographer for this calendar shoot she just happens to be a professional submissive. One look at the “long drink of water” standing in front of her, Simone is parched. Hell, I was parched reading about it. Seeing Jason was not 100% sold on stripping down for a nude shoot, Simone tries a little small talk and finds out he is struggling with letting loose of his kinky side. A 4-day crash course in “kink” and Jason finally is able to be himself and takes to it like a fish to water. I volunteer as tribute!! Simone and Jason both battle with the client vs personal feelings throughout the book. Even Jason’s family brings in a little drama but when you know you know. At first, I was questioning the whole professional bull rider not cutting loose and having fun in between rodeos, most are adrenaline junkies, but the further you read the book the more it makes sense and then it really does not matter because good Lord, you start changing Simone’s name to your own, hahaha! There are parts where you swoon and there are parts where you just melt. Oh, I want a copy of that calendar please
Picture Perfect Cowboy by Tiffany Reisz. A enjoyable story. Great characters, plot and just enough spiciness. I look forward to reading more by this author.
YEE-HAW!! Jason Waters is a man everyone who knows about him admires. A role model, and the perfect gentleman. If only they knew what thoughts and desires run through his head. He’s never admitted to anyone what he truly wants from a woman - that is until he meets Simone Levine, and all his dreams soon become reality! Confession? This is my first Tiffany Reisz book! I know right?! I met her at a book signing earlier this year. Her queue was crazy busy, and everyone was just so excited to meet her – turns out she was absolutely lovely! So, I thought I’d give Picture Perfect Cowboy a try. OH WOW!! I was hooked from the start - her writing just totally pulled me in, and now I understand why people love her books! A definite 5 star read.
Very unique perspective Tiffany Reisz has written many wonderful BDSM books. Picture Perfect Cowboy was wonderful but had a totally different feel and slant to it, which made it an unusual BDSM read. I liked the creative way Simone and Jason meet and how it evolves into an awakening for the hero rather than the heroine. I enjoyed the unique yet sexy storyline, I think readers will be pleased with this romance. I received an advance reader copy via Netgalley.
I loved this decadent romance between Jason and Simone! Simone is a NYC photographer and professional kinkster who travels to Kentucky to capture retired bull-riding champion Jason for her latest calendar project. Friendly small talk reveals that she might know a thing or two about a subject of interest to Jason, though his upbringing has taught him that such interests should never be pursued. Knowing it's time he made his own choices, Jason asks Simone to teach him how to explore his darkest desires in a safe and consensual manner. Simone is more than ready to show Jason that his feelings aren't wrong, they're just better expressed among like-minded friends, and what happens between two consenting adults is simply no one else's business. As they spend more and more spankalicious time together, their feelings deepen and they both find an exhilarating freedom in the intimacy they share. While there's one scene set in Simone's club in NYC, this book is different than the usual BDSM club romance. It focuses almost entirely on just what works for Jason and Simone, their relationship together, and the unorthodox methods they enjoy. Set against the backdrop of Jason's judgmental conservative upbringing and his family's determination to shun everything and everyone they consider deviant, the conflict that Jason has to resolve goes much deeper than just accepting his unusual preferences. He's got to put everything on the line to prove to himself, and to Simone, that he's ready to be his own man. The intimate scenes are as hot as they come, but this romance has a strong emotional foundation that makes it so much more than just a Dom/sub relationship. It's beautifully written with memorable characters and a love story that'll take your breath away. I couldn't love this book more, and highly recommend it for readers who want to experience a little kink in a non-club setting. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.
Tiffany Reisz is the queen of her genre and all things kinky. Her style of written draws you in and you lose yourself in the story. I enjoyed this book as I have all her others, this is a reprint but who cares. Erotica is her thing and she makes it your thing too.
Simone our rainbow haired girl now gone pink is on a job photographing now retired bull rider Jason. What she wasn't expecting was for him to be so demure for a sexy Cowboy. There's something under that mask that Jason wears and Simone can sense it. Through out the session it turns out they both share a love, of something in common. Jason needs a little more convincing good thing Simone is good at this. Good thing Jason is good with ropes. I fell hard for Jason from page one. This story besides the insane chemistry, was so heartfelt. I didn't want it to end. The bonus scene has you grinning like a fool. Tiffany Reisz as always brings you into the the world of Kink that is so genuine and beautiful. This can be read as a standalone even though it is part if the Original Sinners Universe.
Picture Perfect Cowboy is the quintessential Tiffany Reisz book. As touching as it is kinky, she manages to draw out the very best in both emotions flawlessly. It's always wonderful to be back in the world of the Original Sinners, this time as Jason Waters finds his inner Dom with the free-spirited Simone. The brooding cowboy finds that the charming photographer is the answer to his naughty prayers and opens up a whole new world that he anxiously embraces. Their chemistry is apparent right off the bat as Simone takes sexy photos of Jason for a charity calendar. I was caught up in their attraction as well and loved how at ease Simone made Jason feel, having to take off his clothes for the shoot. And as their discussion takes on a more forbidden nature, I felt as if I was getting submission and kink lessons as well as Simone lets Jason in on her lifestyle and why it might very well be his calling. There are plenty of erotic trysts as Simone and Jason become slave and master and it's all done with the right attitude and a great deal of tenderness. Reisz is always respectful of the lifestyle and gives both her readers and her characters the chance to learn about it the right way. And with cameo appearances by two of the most beloved members of the Original Sinners family, who provide the guidance needed to wade through a possible forever love involving Simone and Jason, this extended novella is the perfect taste of what Reisz's series is all about. I loved every word and was thrilled that a bonus short story involving Mistress Nora was included as well. One can never truly get enough of the Original Sinners and this newest treat just has me clamoring for more. Picture Perfect Cowboy is erotica as only Tiffany Reisz can deliver and is well deserving of a solid 5 stars!
I was given this ARC by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Jason is a retired world championship bull rider with a secret. When he meets Simone on a last minute photo shoot for a friend, he feels compelled to share his secret. To his surprise, not only is she into what he's been hiding, but she forces him to let go of his walls and be the man he has always wanted to be. This isn't a book I would typically read, however, it kept me totally interested. I loved the story of Jason being scared and thinking he was a bad person, just to find out that he shared the same kinks as a ton of other people, and it didn't make it wrong. The writing was brilliant. I loved it.
This story between Jason and Simone is cute and hot. We also got some appearances from Nora and Soren.
I enjoyed Picture Perfect Cowboy it's sexy, sweet and has some kink to it. It's about Jason, a cowboy who has kinky fantasies that he's never acted on until he meets Simone. Then they become a reality and with that reality comes self doubt and guilt from his religious upbringing. I loved how the author infused that sense of novelty, wonder, guilt and lack of confidence in what he was doing all while being dominant with his sub. It lent an authenticity to their scenes. I really enjoyed that aspect of it as well as the hot sex. I enjoyed this book and recommend it. ARC provided by author through Net Galley
Picture Perfect Cowboy is book ten in The Original Sinners series by Tiffany Reisz. First, I want to say that for myself, I read books to take myself to places I haven’t gone, to experience things through someone else’s eyes that I know I won’t experience. So, even though I can’t relate to the life style these two enjoy, I thought this book was so darn hot it’s a miracle my e-reader didn’t combust. It was well written and I loved both of the main characters. How could I not? One sexy cowboy and one sweet photographer. These two made for one hot read. Jason Waters was a champion bull rider. He won about every trophy and award there was to win. Until a serious injury made him re-evaluate things and he decided to retire. Now he lives in Kentucky and owns a horse training ranch. Jason is twenty nine years old and was raised by ultra conservative parents. His father ruled with a strong hand, literally. It was pounded into him to always respect others, especially women. That a man NEVER raises his hand to a woman. His older sister was also raised the same way but with words instead of physical reinforcements. Jason has never been able to get interested in any particular woman. The reason is because Jason has a dark secret. The fantasies that live in his head are things that he is sure are wrong. He dreams of being dominant over a woman, of her bowing to his every sexual need, of doing things to her that he is sure are wrong. That is, until he met Simone. Simone Levine is a photographer primarily, but is also a professional submissive. Jason has volunteered to pose for a calendar for charity and when Simone is photographing him, she tells him of her other profession. Jason has never met this woman before, but he is strangely comfortable with her. Can he finally tell someone his secret? Someone that might be able to understand? Someone that might be able to help him understand his own feelings? Simone can’t deny that she is attracted to Jason. But more than that, she can see how troubled he is with his own thoughts and feelings. She volunteers to go home with him and help him. As she lowers Jason’s inhibitions and allows him to finally experience all the things he has only ever fantasized about, she also finds herself falling for him. “She wanted him to order her not to fall in love with him. A simple order to give. Maybe an impossible one to follow.” After experiencing something beyond his wildest expectations, he convinces Simone to stay a few days longer. He wants to explore his growing feelings for this sweet, wonderful woman that has helped him so much. At the same time, the conflict is still happening in his head. That no matter how many times Simone tells him that she enjoys what he is doing to her, that what they are sharing is wonderful, the disapproval of others still plagues him. “You are too good to be true.” “That’s funny, sir.” “And why’s that?” “I keep thinking the same thing about you.” So, while the concept of actually enjoying pain, enjoying completely submitting to someone’s every whim, is not something I could ever accept, I loved Simone. I loved her sweetness, her acceptance of both herself and others. And also the sweet patience she had with Jason in helping him to understand himself. And Jason, yeah, he was one sexy dominant cowboy. He was such a good man and I actually loved that the different parts of himself fought over what was right and wrong.
4.5 STARS! 4.5 STARS! I've come to the conclusion that anything Queen Reisz writes is a must read. My love affair with this phenomenal author began with The Red. I was blown away, shocked, and intrigued. Soon after I jumped at the chance to read The Chateau, which involves Kingsley, a key character in the Original Sinners series. Then finally came Picture Perfect Cowboy. I was immediately drawn to the blurb and it also contains important characters from the OS series. On that note, you don't necessarily have to read the other books in the series to read this one. But I'm hoping to start book one real soon. What I loved about this book was that it was sweet, romantic, and filled with tons of angsty feels. It didn't get as dark and twisted like the previous books I've read. Jason "Still" Waters is a retired professional bull rider who grew up in a conservative household. Afraid of not being accepted by his family, he hides his dominant tendencies. Chance brings Simone aka Spanky, a professional sub into his life, who soon teaches him how to hone his most sexual fantasies and desires #kinkfest Jason and Simone couldn't be more different and that's what made them one of my favorite couples! They're compatible sexually and soon strong feelings arise that scare them both. But will Jason fight for his Spanky or will he allow his upbringing to overrule what he wants? Kinky and everything you love and want from a BDSM book, Picture Perfect Cowboy was off the charts sexy and romantic! All Hail Queen Reisz, she did it again!
Jason feels flawed deep in his soul, no matter his perfect manners, respectful morals, accomplishments and successes. His new Kentucky horse ranch is a new beginning. A reboot in his life. Will he discover the "right" man he secretly wants to be or settle for the man he was raised to be? Simone has grown confidently into her own woman and is unabashedly content in her life in New York. Kink is her community, but she is so much more than that one single definition. Reaching out her hand, might she be open to caring about a conflicted, conservative Montana-bred cowboy? Interest sparks after a naked cute-meet at a library for a fund raising photoshoot. Both opposites attract and like-meets-like deliciousness...instant and curious. Me likey. Still, so much sweetness and thoughtfulness between these two as they built trust on their kink journey, it almost overshadowed the smexy times for me. All that grinning between them, floggers, ponies, and pink champagne giggles. Almost. Nah! Let the free-spirited Tiffany Reisz good times roll on in a safe and consensual kink journey. Only from this author can I feel D/s can be #happykink LOL. Add in that mutual respect thingy and we have one prospective picture perfect love flush in the cusp of bloom. For the first half of the story. Then real life knocks on the door in the form of...well, you'll just need to read that angst all on your own ;) Knottin' more to see here, people, but two kinky, grinning fools, their hopes toward possibilities, and eyes on a box o'toys...please and thank you! 4 solid pink ☆☆☆☆ *ARC received through NetGalley and the publisher for an honest review*
Jason is a retired rodeo cowboy in his late twenties. He's now training horses in Kentucky. He loves his ranch and his horse-training life. But in his personal life something is missing. Something he struggles with a lot. Enter Simone. Some might remember her from the Original Sinners series. She's in town to take naked pictures of Jason for a charity calendar. Jason is not really in love with that idea, but he promised his buddy - who was supposed to be the model, but is now in the hospital. Simone and Jason couldn't be any more different. He's the mega quiet cowboy, and she's the pink-haired wild girl from New York. But they also couldn't be more perfect for each other. She's a pro-sub and he's been secretly dreaming about being a dom, of having a sub or a slave to call his own .... ══════════════════ Well... that was adorable. And erotic. And funny. And beautiful. It was basically everything you would expect a book to be if it was written by Tiffany Reisz. ☺ I loved it! I'm not the biggest fan of the dom-sub thing and of spanking and hurting people for pleasure - so it's a bit weird that I'm the hugest Original Sinners series fan ever! But I just love the Priest and the King and everything in their world. Nora and Søren even have a little cameo! ♥ I just adored this book. Jason is so adorable! And Simone is so sweet and kinky and they both just want this so bad. But her job takes her all over the place and he's in Kentucky - and his family will definitely not be happy about any of this! It's not going to be easy! ► A PERFECT COWBOY was a really sexy and kinky and adorable Cowboy-Baby-Dom romance! Run to your nearest amazon for your own Jason! This one is mine!!
