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.

Our Rating

4 Stars

As much as I try to avoid novellas, I couldn’t pass up a book from the Copper Ridge series, and while it was just under a hundred pages in length, it almost felt like a full story.

 

Holly’s rather attached to holidays, and since her former foster parents will be away until Christmas, she wants to be sure they come home to all the decorations, snacks, and guests they’d usually have planned.  But she can’t do it on her own, and the one person whose help she needs isn’t exactly known for his holiday cheer. Or any cheer at all for that matter.

 

Ryan and Holly both came to Dan and Margie Travers as foster kids, and the Travers treated them as if they were their own.  Now grown, both Ryan and Holly have their own lives, but they haven’t turned their backs on the only real parents they ever had.  But while Holly embraces parties, holidays, and socializing in general, Ryan is a bit of a hermit, usually holed up alone on his fishing boat and certainly never taking part in anything festive.  Holly needs his help, though, and he begrudgingly gives in.

 

It seems an attraction has been brewing between them for years.  For Holly, it started as a teenage crush, and while nothing ever came of it, it’s never quite faded away.  In fact, it’s grown a bit stronger since they’ve grown up.  For Ryan, it was wanting the girl who was too young and sweet for him, and he knew better than to take advantage, much as he may have wanted to.

 

Holly really surprised me.  With zero sexual experience to draw upon, she made the first move.  And when Ryan didn’t reject her, she proposed a bit of an arrangement — a fling until Christmas, at which point they could more or less go their separate ways.  Her approach and almost flippant perspective was not what I expected at all, though I can’t say it was oddly out of character.  In fact, as more of her past and her issues was revealed, it made a lot of sense why she was willing to throw herself at Ryan for a brief fling. What followed was lots of steamy hookups and some very real emotion from an otherwise emotionally vacant Ryan.

 

I expected A Copper Ridge Christmas would be your typical holiday novella — a rushed romance between characters that readers never really get a chance to know very well.  Instead, we get a good look into their pasts, their sad story as foster kids, and the over-compensating adults they’ve become.  On the surface, they are very much opposites, but inside they are more alike than even they realize for a while, and they’re perfect for each other, broken as they may be.  A Copper Ridge Christmas has more substance that your usual holiday novella, and it’s great, quick read.

Tough Luck Hero (Maisey Yates)
Tough Luck Hero (Copper Ridge) - Maisey Yates
4.5 stars

I wasn't really happy with the previous book -- Sierra and Ace in One Night Charmer -- so I admit I was approaching this with lower expectation. Especially since I didn't get enough impression of Colton in the last book.

Well, I'll be damned ... this is definitely my favorite of the series so far, and one of the most entertaining reads of the year!! Even after I slept on it, the only thing I could think about the next day, was how this book as well as the characters of Colton and Lydia amused the hell out of me throughout *hugs book, beaming happily*

Getting hitched under influence in Vegas is a cliché plot. Usually I have trouble in believing why the couple should together. However, I thought Maisey Yates gave a pretty plausible explanation on why Colton and Lydia should keep their marriage for now. Lydia is running as Mayor of Copper Ridge and she can't go through a scandal (since she already told people she married Colton, while she was still drunk *haha*). And Colton also needed to take consideration of his mother's health.

I LOVED Colton and Lydia -- their banters, while sometimes full with barbs and wires, were sizzling and crackling!! Both were quick with their quips!! It was SO DELIGHTFUL reading it!! Especially because Colton and Lydia were actually share similar traits. They were both like to be in control, and it was fun to see when things didn't really come their way.

I thought the progress from adversaries to lovers was believable. I could actually feel the difference in their attitudes and dialogs from the first chapter to the last. They had chemistry and in the end, I believed that they loved one another. Their passion was OFF THE CHART! I was so ready to read their first kiss and actual sex scenes, because the tension was so thick and crackling, I thought it was going to be explosive for sure *lol*

So yes, I really loved this one. I love it when a book can still surprise me, especially when I start it with low expectation. I guess now I'm pretty excited to read Gage's story :)

Tough Luck Hero (Copper Ridge)
Tough Luck Hero (Copper Ridge) - Maisey Yates ARC Review: Tough Luck Hero (Copper Ridge) by Maisey Yates

Living in the moment took on a whole new meaning for Copper Ridge residents Lydia and Colton. A recent round of upsets has left Colton rapidly fleeing and ending up Vegas bound. Lydia unexpectedly comes along for the ride and a little too much fun leads to a predicament that makes for great storytelling. I love Maisey Yates, her stories are a joy to experience because her characters have huge personalities. Whether focusing on gaining insight and working through past mistakes, finding a second chance at romance or waking up married to the most irritating person, she makes the most of irresistible scenarios and heart racing romance. I am a fan no matter what she writes.

Take Me, Cowboy (Copper Ridge) - Maisey Yates

I enjoy reading the friends to lovers plots especially when there's a makeover involved and this was no exception, I liked this story because the h tomboy Anna needs a date for the annual gala because she made a bet with her brothers that she could easily get a date, so she asks her best friend the H Chase who she is secretly in love with and who is a love em and leave em kind of guy to pretend date her leading up to the gala and she agrees to him giving her a makeover which made Chase open his eyes to Anna and I liked how he became attracted her even if she was wearing overalls instead of a dress.
I liked the chemistry between them and I enjoyed it when she made the first move especially when it was done deliberate in front of one his ex one night stands, I liked when she proved to herself that she could look good just for herself and no one else, I liked the angst in the story and their explainations about why the way they were and I liked the ending but I think it would have been nice for an epilogue but I'm hoping there will be another story starring Chase's brother.
