Kane Bishop’s content with living and working on the ranch, but something is missing—a family of his own. After his twin brother married the woman he once loved, Kane has moved on and is now focusing on new things. When his best friend’s little sister re-enters his life, the attraction is undeniable, but the timing is all wrong.
He should keep his distance and not tempt fate, but he can’t get her out of his head.
Ivy’s had a secret crush on Kane for as long as she can remember. Although she’s an introverted bookworm who hasn’t dated much, she’s ready to go after him. He might be a six-foot-three, inked, muscular god who’s out of her league, but she wants him to be her first and only.
She’ll risk it all to get his attention, but it won’t be easy since he’s off-limits.
Giving in to temptation doesn’t come without consequences—it’ll either bring them together or tear them apart.

**Tempting the Cowboy is a complete stand-alone and can be read without reading any of the other books or spin-off series, but if you prefer to read in order, start with Hitching the Cowboy as the characters and families do interconnect.**


  • He’s so tempting

    The Bishop family is one of my families to read about and this book is no exception. Kane and Ivy are just perfect together. They are both honest and open about their wants and needs. The authors added in the perfect amount of angst and drama. Ready for Kaitlyn’s book.
  • Loved this one! Soo adorable together!

    By Lexee9
    I absolutely loved this story! I loved how these two came together and built their relationship. Ivy has had a crush on Kane for years and years but since he is 10 years older it has never really been an option for them until now. Kane has finally realized that Ivy has grown up but the first time that these two are together and really feel that chemistry and connection, Kane has a girlfriend. Ivy would love something more but is willing to just have a friendship with Kane. She is on the shy side and social situations with crowds and strangers make her nervous and anxious. I love how Kane and Ivy interact and that she feels comfortable enough with him to be herself. I loved watching these two build their relationship, it was soo adorable and I loved the way that they interacted. It was obvious they were perfect for each other very quickly. They just fit together. I loved how things played out within the story, there is plenty to grab and hold your attention the entire time. I loved the antics that happen and getting to see and catch up with past characters, extra bonus if you have read others in the series for sure. This story was great and I can't wait for the next one! I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.
  • Kane’s Story with his bf sister, Ivy

    By Mamabeaty
    I was so excited when my ARC dropped on my kindle, but ball games putting a damper and my time to read it. But it was so worth the wait. Why can’t I find a man as sensitive as Kane but a freak in bed?!?! And Ivy, the introverted bookworm, yep so me. Can’t wait until the next book is out.
  • Kane & Ivy

    By LoriLynn627
    They knocked it out of the park again. My favorite series of theirs. You can’t help but love the Circle B Ranch and the HOT cowboys who live there. I loved watching Ivy & Kane fall for each other. Their love story is oh so sweet & oh so steamy. Kane is one of my favorite cowboys he’s all alpha in the bedroom and when he’s jealous but sweet at the same time. I also love the glimpses into what’s been going on with the other couples from previous books in the series. Can’t wait until August to read Kaitlyn & Payton’s story.
  • Love Kane Bishop

    By bjohnson.17
    Cue the swooning over Kane Bishop, because that man is sweet as peach cobbler y’all! Ivy is a sweet, innocent girl who escapes real life in fantasy romance. She’s had a crush on her sister’s best friend for as long as she could remember but he’s always been off limits, until now. Kane has always seen Ivy as his best friend’s little sister. But she’s all grown up now and she has caught his eye. Is he going to the be the one to corrupt innocent Ivy? Kane might be a kinky freak but that man is sweeter than I could’ve ever imagined him being. Ivy might be innocent, but Kane is gonna teach her everything she needs to know.
  • Kane and Ivy are 🔥

    By Jen Bemis
    Holy sweet mother of everything.....Kane Bishop is a man on a different level. He has that good southern gentleman side that his extremely dirty side rivals behind closed doors. I thought I was prepared after all of the teasers KF kept putting out there but oh no....there was more! Having thought he was in love with his best friend Hadleigh nearly half his life Kane sat back and watched her marry his twin brother Knox. Kane realized he loved her but wasn't in love with her and that made the situation easier yet at the same time he is ready to find "the one" and settle down. He wasn't expecting to find "the one" in Hadleigh's younger sister, Ivy. From the moment he realizes she is all grown up he cannot get her out of his mind. Ivy has been in love with Kane nearly all her life and cannot believe it when he starts paying attention to her.....the shy little sister of his best friend who lives her life in romance books. She is inexperienced in so many ways and who better to teach her than Kane Bishop.....and teach her he does!!!! These two together are definitely one of my favorite KF couples. Kane exhibits such self control when it comes to Ivy and taking his time with her, always having what she is comfortable with taking precedence over his own needs and wants. He by no means rushes her into anything and just goes with the flow of them getting to know each other on this very different level. I absolutely loved how Ivy is written as a romance reading/listening fanatic and therefore isn't as innocent as Kane first assumes. Watching Kane support her in gradually coming out of her shell and fearing the wrath he may face from Hadleigh....absolutely adorable. This slow burn goes from a spark to full on engulfing flames in the blink of an eye. Well done, Kennedy Fox! You ladies never ever cease to amaze me with the greatness you give your readers.
  • A delicious age gap romance.

    By RowenaB10
    A delicious age gap romance story is the next addition to the Circle B Ranch series. I didn’t think that Kane’s character would top his twin Knox in the dirty category but he did and that spice was needed when he has to deal with his attraction to Ivy. I love how their chemistry sizzles and the growth that Ivy’s character goes throughout the storyline. Of course it wouldn’t be a Circle B ranch story without all the Bishops family entertainment. A definite must read and I can’t wait for Kaitlyn story.
  • Kane and Ivy, yes please

  • Kane and ivy

    By Srosenthal
    This was a really awesome age gap romance between Kane and Ivy. It is #8 in this fun series and can stand alone but to really understand the characters and what happened in the past you really must read Claiming The Cowboy first which is Kane, Knox and Hadleigh's story. (Hadleigh is Ivy's older sister) Ivy is 19 in this story and Kane is 29. She has crushed on him since she was 12 and he has never really noticed her. At the start of this book, it is 2 years after Claiming the Cowboy and we get to meet Hadleigh and Knox's new baby. At the beginning of this book Kane has a girlfriend who he has been dating a few months. Ivy is very quiet and shy. In a world of go getters she is a bit of a wallflower and Kane has overlooked her, her entire life. Until she decides that she needs to take some action and show Kane how awesome she is. This is her story about a wallflower blossoming and how she gets her man. Kane was very HOT in this story. He is such a fun character and you can tell the authors love him. I really loved watching him start to see Ivy and fall hard for her. I adored their scenes together and I fell hard for him as he fell hard for Ivy. It was really awesome seeing Ivy take risks and let Kane in so he can see who she is. I loved watching her try and keep secrets around some very nosy women while she explored things with Kane. I think this was my top favorite book in this series and I loved the glances we see of Jackson as a parent with his twin sons and Kane especially. I received a complimentary early release copy of this e-book from the author prior to release and am voluntarily leaving a review.
