ARC REVIEW The Last Real Cowboy by Caitlin Crews

The Last Real Cowboy (Cold River Ranch, #3)Cold River Ranch #3, The third book, the third Everett brother and hopefully not the last book of the series especially not after introducing Amanda's brothers. This was an enjoyable book and much like the first it starts with unrequited love. Amanda has been in love with her oldest brothers best friend as long as she can remember, but half the time it's like he doesn't see her and the other times he treats her like she's still in school. Brady has done his best to try and ignore Amanda, she's always been hands off. The Kittredge family has been more a family to him than his own, and lusting after his best friends little sister is a big no no; until it's not.

Brady has a lot issues he was the book smart brother who left as soon as he was able because while loved the ranch he hated his father. His father made him feel like the red-headed step child and pushed to the point his brothers alienate him too. His promised year working on the ranch has been spent trying to convince his brothers that his college degree doesn't make him ranch dumb.

Amanda is the youngest the only girl with four older brothers, four very overstepping, overbearing, over protective brothers. So much so that at the age of 22 she's only been on three dates no one is brave enough to stand up to the Kittredge boys and to the Kittredge boys no one is good enough for their baby sister. Fed up of being treated like a child to everyone around her she makes the decision to start living her life no matter what her brothers do or say. She moves out of her parents house and gets second job at the low class bar on the skirts of town and rents one of the rooms above it. Her parents are supportive her brother's on the other hand. Brady was just supposed to watch out for her make sure no one tries anything but then Amanda asks him to teach her all about sex.

Overall it's a great read. I feel like it can be read as a stand alone, I missed reading the second one and didn't feel lost at all. I loved the bonding between the brothers and truths finally coming to light. I mentally applauded Amanda for standing up for herself and her relationship with Brady.

Big Bad Cowboy by Carly Bloom
Big Bad Cowboy (Once Upon a Time in Texas) - Carly Bloom

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

 

I participated in a buddy read that Forever (publisher) put on, so I'm just going to highlight some of my thoughts in this review.

 

If you like your heroes to be beta in the streets and alpha in the sheets with a lot of Little Red Riding Hood references, you'll love this story. 

 

Travis just got out of the army and has to take over the care of his nephew Henry, Henry's mother died of ovarian cancer and Scott, Travis' brother, is in jail. Henry plays a big part in the story and there were often cute scenes with Travis learning how to parent and heart felt emotion as Travis begins to realize that he does want to take on the full responsibility of Henry.

 

Maggie was our loves her small town except for how she can't shake her "Mighty Mack" just one of the guys persona. She sits in judgement of Travis for a little longer than I would have liked, Travis had an alcoholic father and his brother in jail, but I enjoyed how she was strong willed. 

 

This was a pretty steamy novel from start to finish and even though these two get hands on pretty quickly, the way the author structured the story it never felt like insta-lust. If you're looking for BDSM lite, this would be the couple and story for you.

 

Secondary characters were pretty great in this, Claire is Maggie's friend and I enjoyed their friendship (her book looks to be coming up next). JD has been Maggie's friend since high school and even though it starts out with her having a crush on him, his storyline turns out more interesting than just playboy jilt. 

 

Overall, this was cute and fun with enough Stetson talk and imagery to give me a fetish for the look and conversation these cowboys can convey with every adjustment of their white, black, and straw hats. I wished Travis had revealed or talked with Maggie about a secret way earlier than he was finally forced to; the trust between them was too tenuous for me to solidly believe in their relationship for a lot of the book.

 

If looking for a light, fun, and steamy cowboy read, this would be a great choice.

ARC REVIEW Cowboy Tough by Stacy Finz

Cowboy ToughDry Creek Ranch #2, Jace, Cash, and Sawyer are still trying to figure out how they can keep their ranch in one piece and still have enough to pay the taxes which are coming up and on top of all that Jace is up for re-election as Sheriff and this time he has competition. Jace also needs a new babysitter for his boys, even though the oldest, Travis, is old enough to watch Grady they don't always play nice. Charlotte is on the run from her fiance with the help of an organization that specializes in her situation she's trying to get as far away from him and San Francisco as possible she only made it as far as Dry Creek. Charlotte's former fiance cost her everything and now she has to start over. When Jace earns her trust enough for her to confide in him he talks her into staying at least for a little bit and file a restraining order. Charlotte helps around the house, watches the boys when they need it, helps out with the re-election campaign, and she start to find something to help her make money, refurbish and upcycle stuff she found at an old barn. She is well on her way to falling in love with the town, the boys, and Jace now she only needs to stop worrying about what her ex-fiance is going to do when he finds her.

Overall, it was another fabulous read from Stacy Finz. Wonderful characters love Charlotte heartbroken but resilient, Jace hesitant to start a relationship with a woman who has up until now been a city girl and one who might leave him and his boys and they have been through that before he can't do it again. This a a wonderful romance, Stacy Finz has a way with words, she pulls you in and makes you feel like your part of their family. I am really looking forward to Sawyer's book and finding out about what happened to Angie.
