ARC REVIEW Cowboy Braver by Carolyn Brown

 

Cowboy BraveLonghorn Canyon #3, Yay this isn't the last one! Longhorn Canyon Ranch is a working ranch that in the summer takes on some city kids on the verge of being troublemakers and teaches them about ranching and other stuff. We've already seen the oldest of the Maguire brother's find true love and their best friend/foreman find true love, Justin wasn't looking he didn't even think he was ready to settle down but the moment he set eyes on Emily Baker everything changed.

Emily is the events coordinator at a retirement community and one group she deals with heard about the Longhorn Canyon Ranch and their work with kids and asked Emily if she could arrange a special trip for them to the ranch. By all appearances Emily is a city girl but there is more to her than meets the eye. The attraction between them is instant but Emily is determined not to fall for a cowboy. Justin has never felt this way about anyone and he's determined to show Emily he means it. Aside from Emily's family that she hasn't told him about another obstacle is Justin's mother who took an instant dislike toward Emily automatically assuming she's a golddigger.

Overall, this was another really good read from Carolyn Brown. I loved Emily and Justin and all the hyjinks that the Fab Five get into are hysterical. Even though Justin's mom kind of plays the part of the bad guy in this book Emily really is her own worst enemy. The Bonus Book Second Chance Cowboy by A.J. Pine is a book I have previously read it's the first book of the of Crossroads Ranch series and is really good. So as a two for one deal this one is really good one both books are entertaining and fantastic reads.

New Release Review! Hot Target Cowboy (Dark Horse Cowboys #2) June Faver!

 

 

Today, I am visiting a ranch and a cowboy whose loyalty is to his family but when he falls in love...he falls hard and fast! Enjoy & don't forget to add Hot Target Cowboy to your shelves!

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

His loyalty is to his family.
But his heart belongs to her.

 

Eldest son Colt Garrett is the biggest, strongest and steadiest of the Garrett brothers. Colt accepts his responsibilities, knowing his future is tied to the land. Colt has stayed centered-but when he falls in love, he falls hard. He is mesmerized by Misty Dalton, the younger sister of one of his brother's friends.

 

Misty Dalton has held together a family plagued with problems since her mother passed away. But when the threats to her family turn deadly, Misty turns to Colt. If anybody wants to hurt Misty, they're going to have to go through the toughest of the Garrett boys first.

 

Dark Horse Cowboys Series:
Do or Die Cowboy (Book 1)

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

This cowboy romance is a gripping read that warms the heart. Colt and Misty are strong characters that easily enthrall readers with their sweet romance which grips emotions and has them empathizing with the heroine when she faced with a deadly threat and heartache. The chemistry between Colt and Misty sizzles with desire and passion and Colt takes on the protective knight when he comes to Misty’s aid which makes readers pulse pound in excitement.

 

The story has quite a bit of emotional turmoil as Colt must face his family and their opinions while helping Misty with her troubles and the steady faced plot is full of suspenseful events and some excitement as danger stalks Misty and her family.

Some of the dialogue between Colt and Misty is a little on the cheesy side and while Misty’s characters is strong, she’s a bit too naïve. Overall, the author has created an intriguing family atmosphere that catches readers’ attention and ensures that they want to get to know the whole family and this romance is a heart-warming read.

ARC REVIEW Hot Target Cowboy by June Faver
Hot Target CowboyDark Horse Cowboy #2, I never thought I would fall in love with Colt as much as I did. Reading the first book, which isn't necessary to enjoy this one, Colt comes across as cool, comprised, and hard well Colt is but after one dance and one day with Misty Dalton he proclaims that she is the woman he's going to marry. Colt falls head over cowboy boots for Misty and will do just about anything for her, which has his father and his younger brother worried about her. 

Misty dropped out of college to take care of her father when he got sick and has been running her family's ranch ever since but now the bank foreclosing on the ranch and Misty is more determined than ever to save her birthright even if it means selling off everything that's not bolted down. After selling of the horses Misty older, selfish, brother is murdered and then her father's health gives out that same night. Misty at a loss of what to do next allows Colt to help, he takes her and her younger brother home until they can figure out who killed her brother and when her ranch is safe. Misty not wanting to rely on Colt's charity for long takes a job and Colt comes up with a plan to help save her ranch. The murder of Misty's brother was only the beginning and before Misty and Colt can have their HEA they need to catch the culprit.

Overall, great read. I loved the insta-love on Colt's part being such a tough cowboy he has a soft spot for her and her little brother. I liked that as much as he wanted to protect Misty he still let her do things for herself even if he didn't like the idea and I liked that Misty could stand up for herself and even though she didn't want Colt's charity she was able to accept his help but didn't come to rely on him for everything. I love Big Jim and we did get a couple of pages that were from Tyler and Leah's POV (character from the last book) and that was nice to see Colt and Misty's story from that perspective. Beau, Colt's younger brother, was a bit of a pill this book and that kinda pissed me off but I know he's going to get his just desserts in the next book. The suspense part of the book was good I thoroughly enjoyed it, it kind of zig zagged a bit the first half of the book not knowing where it will lead but the conclusion was great.

My first book of the year...sadly an unfortunate start to my 2019.
Devils Unto Dust - Emma Berquist

 

๏ ๏ ๏  Book Blurb ๏ ๏ ๏ 
 

 

Ten years ago, a horrifying disease began spreading across the West Texas desert. Infected people—shakes—attacked the living and created havoc and destruction. No one has ever survived the infection. Daisy Wilcox, known as Willie, has been protecting her siblings within the relatively safe walls of Glory, Texas. When Willie’s good-for-nothing father steals a fortune from one of the most dangerous shake-hunters in town, she finds herself on the hook for his debt. With two hunters, including the gruff and handsome Ben, to accompany her, she sets out across the desert in search of her father. But the desert is not kind to travelers, and not everyone will pass through alive.

 

 

 

 

 

 

๏ ๏ ๏  My Review ๏ ๏ ๏

 

Someone, somewhere said this was similar to Dread Nation...for some reason, I thought no way could it be that boring...but it turns out they were right...this is, unfortunately, quite similar to that book. 

 

I found myself not really caring if the Zombie-like creatures called "Shakes" bit or turned the characters or not.  That coupled with a slow-moving, slightly underdeveloped plot, and the unrelenting harshness of this alternative historical and Devils Unto Dust failed to wow me in any significant way.

Unmistakably Yours, Kristin Holt

I really enjoyed this historical western romance. I received this for free and I voluntarily chose to review this. I've given it a 5* rating. This had a lot of stuff going on. It ended up with three miracles happening in this small town. Plenty of unique characters too.
