Stick in the Mud Meets Spontaneity (Meet Your Match #3)
by Rachael Anderson.
Audience/Genre: Contemporary Romance, Clean Read.
Publication: June 29th 2015 by HEA Publishing.
Home from college for the summer, Samantha Kinsey steps into her role as nanny for her two favorite little charges. But when she finds herself playing chauffeur more than playmate, her summer outlook quickly turns from fun to bleak. That is, until she drives the girls to a family-owned ranch and meets Colten McCoy—a genuine, hard-working cowboy, who’s as set in his ways as he is handsome. Although he claims he doesn’t need any fun in his life, Sam’s determined to help him find it. But she’ll soon discover that cowboys are about as easy to train as wild mustangs.

Stick in the Mud Meets Spontaneity is about an adaptable girl and a not so adaptable guy. It’s about learning to accept people for who they are and realizing that sometimes who they are is exactly who they should be.

Reviewed by Kelly.

I loved this book for so many reasons!
1) I loved Sam’s character. She is definitely spontaneous. She is a positive person. Her family is very loving. Sam has spunk and an imagination with a fun personality. She is always making the most out of life and inventing something fun to do.Sam is spunky and loves everyone! I wouldn't mind some of her energy either!

2) I loved Colton’s character. He is hard working. He loves kids. He’s honest and has a good heart. Colton also has a loving and giving family. He has flaws like all of us. He just happens to have a fear of heights. Colton can be is funny. He can compromise when the situation isn’t something he likes or wants! I mean really, who wouldn’t want someone who has those qualities?

3) The story has something that has to be worked through. The author didn’t add unneeded drama or immaturity. Sometimes in life there are issues that needs to be talked about; avoiding it is common when you don’t want to feel hurt and afraid of what it might mean. I like the way the author wrote her characters.

4) Both sets of parents taught their children well. In fact, there is something I think I might do with my daughter. Check this out this is her mom talking to Sam there was much more in the conversation but you need to read it. I can't type forever ….
(She) handed the journal to her daughter."You're moving into an important phase of your life where you'll start thinking about the future and what kind of person you'll want to walk down the aisle toward someday. I want you to date a lot- all different kinds of people- and every time you do, I want you to come home and write down the qualities of that person that you liked or didn't like- the qualities that are important to you in a future husband and father. Yes, attraction is important, but I want you to look deeper than that. Harder. Go beyond good hair, handsome faces, and great bodies and into mind and hearts. How does he treat you? Is he driven. Does he care about learning, about improving, about working hard and doing his best? Does he care about you and your opinions and how you feel? Does he have faith in God? Is he a good person? Does he see the real you?"

5) Colton and Sam are so funny together (this is where Colton is trying to teach Sam to ride a horse and gets her to repeat what he says to the horse…..
My name's Sam."
"When I ride you," he continued.
"When I ride you," came her echo.
"I want you to run faster than you've ever run before."
"I want you to-whoa, what?" Sam pulled her hand free and backed away from Colton in an attempt to unfog her brain.
"What kind of sorry excuse for a teacher are you? I don't want Nutmeg to run. I want her to walk. Slowly. Like a turtle."
And then it came. His real laugh. A hearty sound the stretched across the field, over the hills, and into the valleys, filling spreading encompassing until it had wrapped around her in a tight embrace as though saying, I think you're something special.

6) The story leaves you feeling happy. There were times in the book where I felt uncomfortable and sad, like I was Sam and I felt her pain. That’s a five star for me! I love when an author can make you feel the emotions the character is feeling.

7) I enjoyed seeing the other characters from the series and see how they are doing.

8) There was nothing that I didn’t like! Bonus!

Overall, if you like normal drama in life, creating fun things to do, overcoming things about yourself, horses, cowboys, loving families, clean reads, an all is right in the world feeling after you read a book, figuring out what is important in life and finding compromises than this is a story for you!
