Army Ranger with Benefits
"I've read--and loved--every book in the Men of At-Ease Ranch so far. But I can honestly say that I haven't laughed as hard at any of them as I did at this one . . . " -Panda & Boodle
"Another Ranger book from Donna Michael and another 5 star must read.
I really love the strong caring men Donna writes about. They care for their family deeply and the women they find even more. I'm also a sucker for a series that is written well and ties each character together with little updates on each couple moving forward with each book. This book does exactly that. It would make for a fulfilling binge read." ~Red's Romance Reviews
"One of the major strengths of this book – and this entire series – is the way that Ms. Michaels writes her characters. Vince and Emma are complex and well-developed characters, the kind of people who you read about and want to be friends with. Or, in Vince's case, you promote him to the job of book boyfriend because he's just. that. swoon-worthy. But unlike so many books, the side characters are also a huge part of their story without totally overwhelming it. I recommend this book to anyone who likes a fake relationship story, or to anyone who just likes a well-written, humor-and-heart infused love story." ~Heather, Goodreads
"(...)I loved all of it. I must admit that I was a little afraid going into this book for the sheer fact that I absolutely loved him previously and I had to hope this story did him justice but honestly I don't know why I felt the little bit of trepidation I did because there hasn't been a book that Donna Michael's has written that I have enjoyed." ~Nadine Bookaholic
Their sexy scheme so doesn’t go as planned...
Emma Roberts is done losing her heart to military men who don’t stick around. Desperate to shake up her love life, she launches a plan to get her handsome, dependable crush to finally notice her. And her neighbor’s sexy older brother that just arrived in town is the perfect man for the job.
But there’s a problem.
Emma’s ridiculously attracted to her fake boyfriend.
Former Army Ranger Vince Acardi dropped everything to help his stubborn brother after he’s injured in the line of duty. Instead, he somehow gets stuck helping the adorably hot girl next door land a date with some doctor she’s interested in. Not that fake-dating her is a hardship, and soon, he’s holding her, kissing her, touching her…
There’s nothing fake about the chemistry between them. But Vince is leaving in two weeks, and Emma refuses to risk her heart on another military man. Worse, the good doctor she’s been after is finally standing up and taking notice…
"An absolute keeper shelf series in my opinion (...) this series MUST go on!! Readers of Lori Wilde and Candis Terry will FALL for the Men of At Ease SO HARD!!" ~Lisa Filipe, A Tasty Read Book Reviews
"My friend Lisa suggested I read this series and I am so glad I did. I had the motivation to start reading because of this review, but once I started I couldn’t stop. I read all three books in three days, couldn’t put them down! If you haven’t read The Men of At Ease Rach series you NEED to, right away."
~Defying Tradition, Allisia Wysong
"...I am convinced that this is one of Ms. Micheals best series. From page one forward you will be intrigued. Alpha men are just scrumptious, when written about because they are always the most honest caring individuals in the book. Some writers don't follow this rule, but Donna Micheals follows it to a "T" Read this series if you just want to swoon!!!" ~Linda C
"I am so pleased I have found Donna Michaels' books into my life because they are just like little rays of sunshine. The stories are riddled with delightful humor that makes me smile, there's adorable tender sweetness that makes me sigh, love stories that are easy to believe, passion that scorches the pages bringing heat and spice to the tales, and there are friends, brothers, families with tight bonds, loyalty, and protectiveness that you can't help but admire." ~Books and Spoons

"I have loved Donna Michaels’ Men of At-Ease Ranch since the beginning. It has proven to be a strong series—one with likable characters, deep friendships that come complete with humor, banter and caring, and love stories that are equal parts sweet and sexy." ~Beth at Panda & Boodle
