REVIEW OF: His Kind of Cowgirl

His Kind of Cowgirl

by Karen Rock

TITLE: His Kind of Cowgirl

ARC Received From: Tasty Book Tours and Netgalley

# OF STARS 4

Genre: COWBOY ROMANCE

Pages: 368

Overview:

Would he still love her…if he knew? 

Tanner Hayes smashed Claire’s life to pieces when he chose the rodeo over her ten years ago. And now he’d wrecked her truck! Fantastic. She’d lost her husband, the family ranch was mired in debt, her father was recuperating from a stroke and her son was being bullied. Why not throw a reckless bull rider into the mix?

All she’d wanted was a safe, stable life. But with Tanner back in town—and staying on her ranch—nothing was safe, or under control. Not the feelings she’d fought so hard to forget. Not the son she was determined to protect. And certainly not her long-held secret…

Tammy Review

# OF STARS 3.5

Genre: Cowboy Romance

Pages: 210

Overview:

It’ll take more than a badge to get her to confess her secrets. The River Rogues, Book 2 Kit Wainwright only meant to stop the thief making off with his beloved uncle’s ashes.

But the mayor takes notice of his sharpshooting skills, slaps a badge on his chest and puts him in charge of cleaning up this lawless town. Starting with tracking down the notorious Velvet Grace. Bordello owner Cora Reilly never meant to become a crusader.

A man Kit turning his life around, he once owned a brothel. And she has a secret life that keeps women safe. But is she also the woman, the murdered he was hired to find.

Coincidental Cowgirl

Coincidental Cowgirl

by Jillian Neal

TITLE: Coincidental Cowgirl

SERIES: A Camden Ranch Introduction

# OF STARS 4

Genre: COWBOY ROMANCE

Pages: 178

Overview:

Born and raised on the sunny shores of Gypsy Beach, Hope Camden is struggling to make sense of life on her husband’s family cattle ranch, which is often buried in three feet of snow. She willingly traded in her flip-flops for cowgirl boots, but life on the ranch isn’t quite how she imagined it. Truthfully, she doesn’t understand how anyone survives in a town where the cows vastly outnumber the people, the mailman reads the mail before delivering it, the doctor’s office is in an old mechanic’s shop, and the poodle-grooming beauty shop owner moonlights for the mortuary. Her husband is kind, sweet, and oh so sexy, but the Nebraskan winters may be more than she can withstand.

Born and bred to be a cowboy, Brock Camden is desperate to make Hope love Pleasant Glen as much as he does. There’s nothing better than having his wife in his arms or in his bed. He just has to show her that life on his family’s cattle ranch can be just as magical as their life on Gypsy Beach, if she’ll give it a chance. A shocking twist of fate has both of them clinging tightly to one another, and Brock has to prove that he’ll stand by her side through thick or thin. Will the fiery passion they have between the sheets be enough to keep them warm through the long, cold winter nights?

Reviewed by Tammy:

The book was good. There were areas that will make you laugh out loud. You can feel like you are going threw the things that Hope is. You are able to relate to her in this story very well. I like how the family pulls together to show them what they were doing wrong. The lesson in the story is that you cant expect your spouse to know what is going on without good communication. That you need to take the bad with the good and to give new things a chance.

There’s no shortage of handsome cowboys turning up to save the day, but she puts her trust in local rancher Steve Williams. From the moment she shakes his hand, his warm, calloused grip makes her hotter than she knows what to do with…

ARC Review:

WOW what a way to find out that you almost made the biggest mistake of your life. You find that you can’t settle for what someone else wants from you but what you really want for yourself. Trying to be in a relationship where your partner wants you to change you will never be happy and it will never really work. By finding someone who accepts you for yourself is the greatest thing and that is what we all should try to reach for it is a great beginning to any relationship.

I am grateful to Cheryl for writing a great story of finding ones true self even if it is outside of what you would normally do.
