Awesome Read!!
Nothing But Trouble - a Western Romance - Lisa Mondello

Nothing But Trouble by Lisa Mondello is a great read.  This is a fairly short read, a great choice for those with limited time for reading.  Ms Mondello has delivered a well-written book.  The characters are fantastic and lovable.  Melanie is a sassy, feisty, diabetic zoologist.  Stoney is a sometimes rodeo bull rider and works the family ranch.  Trouble follows when Melanie hires Stoney to guide her into a month-long stay in the mountains.  There is plenty of action, drama, sizzle and suspense to keep any reader happy.  I totally enjoyed reading Nothing But Trouble and look forward to reading more from Ms Mondello soon.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

 

I voluntarily read a free copy of this book that I received from Instafreebie.

Review: Down Home Cowboy (Copper Ridge #8) by Maisey Yates
Down Home Cowboy: A Western Romance Novel (Copper Ridge) - Maisey Yates

 

 

 

 

This Texas cowboy has come home to Copper Ridge to put down roots…but will he risk his heart again?

Asked where he'd be at this point in life, Cain Donnelly would have said anywhere but Copper Ridge, Oregon, living with his estranged brothers. But since his wife abandoned them, both he and his daughter, Violet, are in need of a fresh start, so he's back to claim his share of the family ranch. Local baker Alison Davis is a delicious temptation, but she's also his daughter's mentor and new boss. That makes her off-limits…until she offers a no-strings deal that no red-blooded cowboy could resist.

Alison has worked tirelessly to rebuild her life, and she won't jeopardize her hard-won independence. Especially if it also complicates Cain's relationship with Violet. But with Cain offering a love she never thought was possible, Alison has to find the courage to let her past go…or watch her future ride away for good.

 

 

 

3 ½ ★

 

This is the 8th book in the Copper Ridge series but it can be easily read as a standalone. I have not read any of the previous books and did not feel like I missed something. Which is always good. Most know, that I enjoy Cowboy books among Rockstar and Hockey books , when it comes to romance books, so it was really way to like this book. This was the first book I read by Maisey Yates but I plan on reading more of her books. I liked the writing style it had a nice flow to it and was easy to follow and get lost in. I did enjoy the story and the characters for the most part, some parts were a bit annoying but nothing major that made me want to stop reading. I l liked the back story of the characters and it made us really see why they are the way they are. While most of the story was easy to predict it still was very enjoyable to read. I enjoyed all the side characters as well even if I did not know that from the precious books. I thought they had just the right amount of page-time not too much or little. Overall. Great read and looking forward to read more by this author.

I rate it 3 ½ ★

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Maisey Yates lives in rural Oregon with her three children and her husband, whose chiseled jaw and arresting features continue to make her swoon. She feels the epic trek she takes several times a day from her office to her coffee maker is a true example of her pioneer spirit. In 2009, at the age of twenty-three Maisey sold her first book.

Since then it’s been a whirlwind of sexy alpha males and happily ever afters, and she wouldn’t have it any other way. Maisey divides her writing time between dark, passionate category romances set just about everywhere on earth and light sexy contemporary romances set practically in her back yard.

She believes that she clearly has the best job in the world.

Undaunted: A Western Romance Novel (Long, Tall Texans)
Undaunted: A Western Romance Novel (Long, Tall Texans) - Diana Palmer Garrett Carlton is a cynic with a knack for making money, but not a lot of heart. Kate Martin is an optimist. Despite the many heartaches her young life has endured, she takes pride in the lessons she's learned. Her heart is big, but her pockets are lacking. When these opposites collide it's life - changing. An accident brings them together, but will it also tear them apart? Undaunted is a story of compassion and forgiveness. It takes a little while to get to the reward but the pathway leading there is worth the bumps and bruises. It's stories like this that have kept me a fan of Ms. Palmer's for years. She entertains, teaches and speaks to the heart.

Review: Toughest Cowboy in Texas by Carolyn Brown
Toughest Cowboy in Texas: A Western Romance (Happy, Texas) - Carolyn Brown

Lila Harris and Brody Dawson were teenagers in love, albeit quietly and secretly. But the night he stood her up and she left town was then end of their romance and friendship. Twelve years later, Lila returns to Happy, Texas, to help sell the cafe her mother once ran and still owns. When Brody shows up, they realize their chemistry hasn’t faded after all this time, but can broken hearts be mended?

 

Toughest Cowboy in Texas is a sweet cowboy romance, but not necessarily right for me. Although I’m not a “cowboy romance” fan, I’ve read and enjoyed other books about cowboys (Lorelei James), working on a ranch (Jill Shalvis) and farmers (Alice Clayton). Yet Ms. Brown’s storytelling and subject matter just didn’t gel with me. First, she relies heavily on country music references, and since I absolutely do not like country music, this not only annoyed me, but left me confused as I didn’t understand the references. She used songs and lyrics to help set the mood or explain feelings, all which was lost to me.

 

Second, there were references to events, like one of the town’s folk disappearing years before, which were written in a way that confused me - wondering if it was something from another book/series - and why it was even part of the story since it seemed to have little impact. There was another scene that featured Lila’s former boyfriend, who is her boss, that also felt contrived and unnecessary. Finally, I didn’t care for some of the side characters - like both “mamas,” who feuded with one another and disapproved of Lila and Brody’s relationship. I felt their reactions and snide remarks were over the top.

 

With that, I did enjoy Brody and Lila together. I loved that they were able to look beyond the their pasts, right the wrongs, and work on a relationship like the adults they are now. Both had matured a lot, yet kept their youthful joy. Brody’s work on the ranch gives him responsibility for his actions - something he knows now he messed up in the past. And Lila had to learn to stand up for herself, that she’s normal and not some messed up, crazy teenager.

 

In the end, Toughest Cowboy in Texas will probably hit all the right notes for many. It’s a sweet story about forgiveness and second chances. The main characters are likable, strong, and generous. It’s just the country and western emphasis, along with the side characters and unnecessary scenes that bogged the book down for me.

 

My Rating:  C, Finished It - Liked some, didn't like some

Reckless In Texas, Kari Lynn Dell
Reckless in Texas - Kari Lynn Dell

I really enjoyed this Western Romance that centered around Rodeo's. I received this book for free and I voluntarily chose to review it. I gave it a 4.5* rating. Between the frequent encounters with danger and attempts at normal lives, this book pulled me in. Lots of animals to color this story around these hard working, living on the edge type work of running rodeo's as a family business. I had a couple of late nights or should I say early mornings reading this. Not really for the under 18 readers.
