I had a difficult time with the slang in the dialogue meant to capture the ranching voice. I found it wasn't consistent, only appearing sporadically and I could have done without it as I felt it made the daughter especially seem uneducated (and for some reason was mostly in her dialogue) which she wasn't. It irritated me that it appeared randomly and would have like it to be used throughout the book or not at all.
I don't have anything other than that to gripe about. It was an easy read, fast and kept me intrigued enough to find out who the mysterious person was at the other end of the computer.

The only problem is that when she arrives in British Columbia she finds that not only is Andy smoking hot but he has a temper that matches. He hasn't fallen from his horse, never played online backgammon and has never heard of Kate.
Should she stay or should she leave? She is drawn to Robin (Andy's brash daughter) and wants to be helpful. Can she figure out who was the real Andy the Cowboy and why the deception?
I absolutely loved the premise of Hot to Trot as it promised a little of everything from online chat rooms to dude ranches and soap stars. The only issue is that for most of the story I was annoyed with how crappy Andy was to Kate and how Kate just kept taking it like a doormat. I would have probably skimmed over parts of the story but as it was an audio book I did listen to the entire story. I ended up feeling Hot to Trot was a cute story but I disliked a number of the characters.

This was a cute, quick read. I enjoyed the humour in it and the search to find the out who the real "Andy the Cowboy" is. The one thing that bothered me a bit was the way the characters spoke...this was not Texas, it was supposed to be a ranch in British Columbia, where there are no "howdys, y'alls, or ain'ts"...sorry to disappoint but rural Canadians speak much the same as the rest of Canadians...no drawls included. Besides this small distraction, I enjoyed the story and would read more of this author's work.
