Sexual dysfunction. The words make Sibyll cringe, but after one too many failed relationships, she has to face reality. Her O-button is broken, big time. Sick of sitting on the sexual sidelines, she books a week at Boot Knockers Ranch. If a passel of rugged cowboys vying to bring her bliss can’t get her off, nothing will.
Hugh had planned to sit out this week’s rotation of sexual therapy, but when he spots sultry Sibyll, he pulls rank. His bone-deep urge to possess her isn’t enough to coax elusive orgasms out of her body, though. And his resolve to give the lady whatever she needs wavers when she shyly makes a mind-blowing request.
Riggs stepped aside when Hugh muscled in to claim Sibyll, but he jumps at the chance to fulfill her ultimate fantasy—a threesome. But once they come together, all barriers are stripped away, exposing his love for the one man—and woman—he’d break every last rule to make his own.
Just loved the concept of a bunch of cowboy's fighting over a bunch of women to have sex with them .Too funny.Although this is a working ranch that sells horses this Ranch specializes in helping women.Everyone of the cowboys plays a part.There main goal is to have there women leaving happy and feel good about themselves again and give them anything that they want while they are there.The men are at there beck and call.YEAH!
Just loved all the character's but, I alway pick a favorite on to rave about and my pick would have to be Sybill. She just surprised me the most of all.She arrived at the ranch hoping to get over her sexual dysfunction in not being able to have an orgasm hoping one of these cowboy's will do the trick. Sybill was a bit uptight and had a controlling personality I believe this is part of her problem she just needed to let go.Hugh her gorgeous cowboy was the one just to do that.Instant sparks between the two. Sybill really surprised me the most she had the whole another personality to herself that she kept suppressed but, once she let it come to the surface she was some Hell cat as the men would say...One man couldn't do the trick but two !Who would have thought the stuffy uptight gal is into threesomes ! And I just loved how she came to care for her two cowboy's so quickly they just all fit together.There relationship justed worked and when things come to the end my heart broke a bit for her as there seemed to be no happy ending for her. Sybill was just a sweetheart loving caring and smart and love able all wrapped up into one package.
Have a mention too how much I just loved Hugh and how he kept saying that Sybill heart throbbed him after all the women he has been with one stuffy little librarian type is the one to make this sexy hot cowboy fall in love.He was just cute sexy love-able and bruting and I was just a little bit in love with him myself.Riggs on the other hand was just one love-able sexy sweet cowboy the kind you could spill all your secrets to and go to when you need a good cry on one's shoulder.He was just too adorable.
I just loved it and we are giving it 5 stars.Em is a fairly new author for me and I am just loving her books.This was one great fun read and I am looking forward to reading some of Em's other titles in this continuing series.
Recommended Read to all that love Erotica reads!
Some of our other reviews for Em!
Excerpt Sibyll followed her gaze to the door between stage entrance and hallway several feet away. His back was to her and the other dozen women, his shoulders taking up most of the door frame and his white T-shirt molded to a chiseled back. Sibyll outlined his back muscles with her gaze, cutting a path down to a backside hugged by worn denim. The cowboy pivoted. His face was illuminated by the overhead lights as he talked to the perky Isabel, the ringleader of this insane audition process. “He has a black eye!” someone whispered. “From a bar fight? Please let it be from a bar fight!” a woman with a gorgeous head of red hair and thick glasses added. The cowboy raised his head and stared at the women. Suddenly Sibyll’s muscles tensed to run. She didn’t want to be here, had made the wrong decision. So what if I can’t experience “physical and emotional sensation at the peak of sexual excitation” according to Dictionary.com? Isabel swooped through the door and pointed at the curvaceous brunette to Sibyll’s right. “You’re next.” Then she returned to the doorway, where she leaned and talked to the cowboy with the black eye. Dust motes swirled hectically in the lights streaming from the stage. Sibyll tried to follow one with her eyes. Anything to keep from looking directly at that cowboy’s handsome, rugged face. He was huge—tall and broad and muscled in all the ways that made the knot in Sibyll’s core want to unravel. But it never did. Maybe if he fights to win me, I could. He glanced up again, and the group of women tittered. The leggy blonde was led offstage on the arm of a cowboy wearing all black except his shiny silver and turquoise belt buckle. “Wow, he’s fine. Jenny’s lucky to get him,” the virgin whispered after they passed. They stopped at the door, and the production manager moved to the side so they could pass. The black-eyed cowboy with the two-day-old dark stubble on his jaw shook hands with both cowboy and contestant. “You—sexy secretary—you’re next.” The production manager jabbed a finger in Sibyll’s direction. She looked around herself. A slight girl to her right wore a peasant dress and thong sandals, and the tall, toned girl to her left wore sporty shorts and a T-shirt with an energy drink logo. “Wh—? Me?” Sibyll pointed to her chest. “Yep, you.” The production manager whirled back to speak with the cowboy, but he’d strolled through the door and was making his molasses-sweet way across the stage. He passed the first group of contestants, who froze like a herd of deer in the middle of Highway 495. He dipped his head and positioned a battered brown cowboy hat on it. “Howdy,” he drawled, lips curled in the perfect dose of Southern gentleman and cocky bad-boy. Feminine sighs sounded in response. Sibyll’s heart thumped as he neared her small group standing nearest to the stage. The closer he got, the more his bulk seemed to take up all the space in the room. Or maybe that was testosterone. He dropped a wink at the virgin and leaned in to speak to her. “The black eye was nothin’ as glamorous as a kick-ass bar fight. Took a hoof yesterday working with the horses.” He straightened and settled his gaze right on Sibyll. She stopped breathing as electricity passed between them. That’s my imagination. I’m so keyed up. The cowboy cleared his throat but didn’t say anything. Around them, women gawked. Hell, even Isabel the production manager stood with her mouth open, glancing between the huge cowboy and her clipboard. “Hugh, you’re not filling in today, are you?” Isabel asked. The man blinked, severing his hold on Sibyll. He shook his head. “Nah, I’m not competin’ today. I’m Master of Games as usual.” He pinned Sibyll again with his gaze. Something dark and exciting coiled low in her belly. What if this man did stand up for her? I’d choose him in a heartbeat.
Em Petrova lives in backwoods Pennsylvania, where she raises four kids and a Labradoodle puppy named Daisy Hasselhoff and pays too damn much for utilities. She loves to write gritty characters with lots of heart and is well-known for scorching, panty-soaking erotic romance.

Our Author Interview
What would you have done differently if you were the main character of your book?
I’d book a 2-week trip to the ranch. 1 is never enough, believe me.
What was your inspiration behind this book?
Pushin’ Buttons is a product of my sick mind wondering what would happen if you went onto the show THE VOICE and Adam Levine pushed his button b/c he wanted to seduce you.
Why did you become a writer?
I had no choice. Write or die.
Do you have a favorite author or authors?
I adore Anne Rice and Stephen King. If they ever ask me to do a kinky boxed set, I’m in!
Do you like to write your books in a continuing series?
My books, even if in a series, can all be read as single titles. Often the characters do not cross over. In the case of The Boot Knockers series, though, the same characters make appearances.
If you could date any character from any book, who would it be and why?
Peter Pan. Because he never grows up and gets low testosterone. Also he pulls off a fierce pair of tights.
What kinds of books do you like to read in your spare time?
I’m a literary fiction reader and I adore the classics.
As a reader and writer I think it is important to get to know your fans and make a connection with them as an author who takes the extra step to hear what their fans think and want in their continued writing is continued success and key to selling more books .Do you agree with that?
I talk to my readers daily, and while I do keep an ear to the ground about their current tastes, I always write what I love. I believe the passion shines through no matter what kind of book it is.
Do you cry when writing sad scenes?
No. It takes a lot to make me cry. Like PMS and no chocolate. LOL.
Did you have a Cover Designer?
For self-published books I work with an awesome artist. If the book is through a publisher, I submit a cover art form and their artists are assigned. So far I’ve been very blessed. I’m sort of a cover diva and will really let you know if I’m unhappy about a cover! For instance, I once had a hero on a cover with a mullet. No, the mullet wasn’t part of the story.
Who is your fictional boyfriend or girlfriend crush?
Fictional BF is David Beckham *shiver* and my GF crush is Shakira! Whew!
If you were able to dine and have a one on one with your favorite writer/author who would it be?
Kris Mallory. He writes horror and I adore him. We talk daily on the internet but we’ve never met in person.
Do just re-read your favorite books?
I don’t have a lot of reading time, so I go for what I’m in the mood for. Before I was a writer I would read my faves in a cycle—Diana Gabaldon in spring, Dickens at Christmastime…
Do you ever get in a reading slump like your readers do?
Reading feels like work to me, and I don’t often unplug enough to read. *sad face*
What is the funniest book you ever read?
I heart Bridget Jones’s Diary.
Thanks for having me! Great questions!
