25 Reasons to Hate Christmas and Cowboys25 Reasons to Hate Christmas and Cowboys by Elle Thorpe

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Isabel has twenty-five reasons why she hates Christmas. And if I were in her shoes, I might just feel the same way. It won’t be easy to change her mind after so many years of disappointments. But then again, she hadn’t met Johnny West yet. Once Johnny meets Isabel, to say he is interested is an understatement. There is something about her that draws him in close. Johnny is determined to give Isabel twenty-five reasons of his own why she should love Christmas. And if he should get her to love him as well, then that’s a true win.

I’m just going to say it, Johnny had me smiling and giddy from his first moments on the page. He was adorable. Johnny was a gorgeous, well-built, hunky cowboy but the aspect of his persona that truly won me over was his generous heart and considerate nature. Like I said, he was adorable.

I don’t need to repeat all that’s in the synopsis because the author does a great job with that. The premise is pretty sweet and the story well-written. There is a bit of angst, but not much. Overall, this book was a light, endearing read and I enjoyed it very much. I definitely recommend this. I will definitely be reading more from this author in the future.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time torrid it. 🙂

Synopsis:

Billionaires, cowboys, and romance collide during the holidays in this next book in the River Ranch series!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year at the Ford family ranch. Will one cowboy’s homecoming be the greatest gift of all?

He left town and never looked back.
Cody Ford is a Wall Street honcho with humble Texas roots. This holiday season, he’d be content to just stay in New York and not face his family―and dodge their questions about when and with whom he plans to settle down. . .and if he will do so back at home. But his father isn’t getting any younger, and Cody doesn’t want to miss any last chances to see him and the rest of the folks back on the ranch. The last person Cody was expecting to see? His one-time girlfriend, Lexi Murphy, who’s been working as his dad’s new live-in nurse.

She never forgot him. Can she ever forgive him?
Lexi still holds a grudge against Cody. Back then, the college-bound heartthrob believed he was too good for a small-town girl like Lexi. But now Cody can’t help but see her in a whole new light. Could it be that this beautiful single mother with an unbeatable can-do spirit is the one he’s been waiting for all along? That depends on whether Cody can prove to Lexi that, this time, he means business―and if a sudden snowstorm can lend just the right amount of Christmas magic to help move things along.

📝My Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Once Upon a Cowboy Christmas (River Ranch, #3)Once Upon a Cowboy Christmas by Soraya M. Lane

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It’s never too early to start reading Christmas Romances, especially when there are so many and the holiday season isn’t long enough to read all the ones I want. When I read the synopsis for Once Upon A Cowboy, I was excited. Two of my favorites things are Christmas and cowboys. That said, this book had the potential to be a five star rating from me. But unfortunately, the hero was a bit too full of himself for me to love. By the end of the book I did like him, however I didn’t love him and that was a bit disappointing.

Cody moved on from the family ranch right after high school and didn’t look back unless you count the few and far between times he came to visit. He believed he had good reasons which I will not divulge to you because you should read that on your own. I will say that while I understood his reasons for staying away, I didn’t feel they were the huge drama he made them out to be. But that is just my own opinion, and one of the reasons I couldn’t fall in love with Cody. Also, I didn’t feel the connection between him and Lexi. Lexi, I loved. And on her behalf, I was frustrated with Cody. Look, I don’t want to downplay his way of thinking too much just because I couldn’t connect with him. But I can say that his situation was one that I know personally; it never would have even occurred to me to leave the way he did or stay away so long.

The synopsis for this book gives you good insight into the premise of this story so I won’t need to summarize it. You must be wondering why I gave this book four stars after reading how I didn’t like Cody. Well the answer to that is easy. The secondary characters and Lexi are who brought me entertainment and kept me turning pages. I especially adored Cody’s dad. He was such a wonderful addition to this story which takes place the week leading up to Christmas.

Cody and Lexi’s story is the third book in the River Ranch series. I have not read the previous books yet. Because I truly liked Cody’s younger brother and sister, I would like to read their books as well. In addition, there is the oldest sibling, Angelica, still to have her great love story told.

While this was my first book by this author, I would like to read more from her. Even though I wasn’t a fan of Cody, I enjoyed the author’s talent for storytelling; she kept me engaged in the story and that is all I need.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Synopsis:  A Cowboy Under the Mistletoe

‘Tis the season for starting over for one military man turned cowboy in this new novel by the New York Times bestselling author of The Cowboy and His Baby.

Former Navy master-at-arms Jason Clements is down on his luck and calling in one last favor. His cousin has secured him a job opportunity as a cowboy working at Price Ranch in Wyoming. Too bad Jason has never even saddled a horse. If he can keep this job without his PTSD getting in the way, it’ll be a Christmas miracle.

Local busybody Sage Cooper loves Painted Barrel something fierce, but it’s time for her to move on. Since her father passed away, the family ranch feels too big for just her, and there’s no chance of finding a husband in this small town. To the rest of the world, she’s just another local fixture, known for her closet full of ugly Christmas sweaters and being perpetually single.

It isn’t until Jason shows up in desperate need of a cowboy crash course that Sage discovers a tall, dark, and handsome reason to stick around. And with the holidays coming up, Sage is in need of a date for a special event—maybe they’ll turn out to be each other’s best Christmas present.

A Cowboy Under the MistletoeA Cowboy Under the Mistletoe by Jessica Clare

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh, I loved this book so much!
Why haven’t I read this author before now?
If I could give this book more than five stars, I certainly would. This author wrote in a way that tugged every one of my heartstrings. At some point we all say, “every now and then a certain book will come along and once you finish, you are left will long sigh, a huge smile and a feeling like you’ve been awarded something special,” Well that was A Cowboy Under The Mistletoe for me. A truly endearing, heartwarming, poignant story. I am absolutely going to put time aside and read more from Jessica Clare.

Sage and Jason…..
This is a story that you’ll need to experience each emotion your own, so I’m not going to tell you anything that will take away from that. Sorry, no spoilers.

Sage grew up in a small Wyoming town called Painted Barrel. While she is friends with everyone in town, Sage still feels very much alone. Sage made a decision that once the Spring rolled around, she would sell her ranch and move on to a larger town where she can start over and hopefully find love. With her longtime crush (never noticing her for more than his friend) getting married, Sage realizes she needs a change. It’s time.

Jason Clements has a story. An endearingly, heartbreaking story. He desperately wants to fit in, wants to finally call someplace home rather than jumping around from job to job. Employment is something Jason is struggling with due to his PTSD. While Sage had me sad for her loneliness, Jason’s story had my heart bleeding. That said, I really appreciated how the author wrote his struggles so I could experience them with him. I was sad when he was sad. When Jason was afraid, I was scared with him. And when he found love, I was teary-eyed, not to mention, relieved.

This book was so perfect for a Christmas romance.

I don’t want to say anything more other than this is a must read and I recommend you check it out when it releases mid-October. This book will leave you truly feeling warm and exudes that special feeling that is in the air around the holiday season. A Cowboy Under The Mistletoe has all the feels, and then some.

This is my honest and unbiased opinion. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Synopsis:

He’s never even kissed the woman, but her son is clearly, without a doubt, his.

Zach McCoy has been on the rodeo circuit for six years and is making a damn fine living at it. When he comes home, for the first time, to be in his best friend’s wedding he’s got one helluva surprise waiting for him in the shape of a five-year old boy who is his spitting image.

Emma Kipling took matters into her own hands six years ago, before the man she was crazy about took off to join the rodeo. She didn’t care one bit that he was two years older and she was still in high school, she wanted one night with him before he left to compete in a dangerous sport. When he didn’t come back after she found herself pregnant she knew he had abandoned her and her son.

Now he’s back for her brother’s wedding, and by the look on his face, sparks are going to fly. She’s ready and willing to go toe to toe with him and give him a piece of her mind.

Emma's Rodeo Cowboy: Burlap and Barbed Wire (Burlap and Barbed Wire Series Book 6)Emma’s Rodeo Cowboy: Burlap and Barbed Wire by Shirley Penick

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Book six in the Burlap and Barbed Wire series is finally here! I feel like I’ve been waiting for this book specifically. I truly enjoyed all the prior books in the series but from the moment I met Emma, and the constant mentions of Zach, I knew there was a good story there. Well, this book was worth the wait. I absolutely adored both Emma and Zach. Especially Zach. While he is a sexy rodeo cowboy, he is also a gentleman. Zach was kind, sweet, loyal and loving. Without going into too many details, I’ll say I was sad for all he missed. You know, those awful misunderstandings and assumptions we love to hate in our romances? Well this book has that. I’m just so happy everything worked out.

Ok, I will also say that while their circumstances were nothing I’ve ever read before, I thought it to be a bit unbelievable when first mentioned. But as the book goes on, the author does a good job of helping me to believe something so unbelievable could truly happen. And that is all I will say about that, lol.

Emma and Zach are reunited after six years. As you know from the blurb, there is also a little person in the scenario now. I enjoyed the whole dynamic of Zach, Emma and Tony learning how to be a family, how they could make it work. There are a few obstacles in their road to Happily-ever-after. But their love is strong. It always was and that was all they needed. This book is low angst and enjoyable to read. I’m very happy I got to read this series. I definitely recommend the Burlap and Barbed Wire series from Shirley Penick.

This is my honest on unbiased opinion. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

What does a geeky math nerd know about writing romance?

That’s a darn good question. As a former techy I’ve done everything from computer programming to international trainer. Prior to college I had lots of different jobs and activities that were so diverse, I was an anomaly.

None of that qualifies me for writing novels. But I have some darn good stories to tell and a lot of imagination.

I have lived in Colorado, Hawaii and currently Washington. Going from two states with 340 days of sun to a state with 340 days of clouds, I had to do something to perk me up. And that’s when I started this new adventure called author. Joining the Romance Writers of America and two local chapters, helped me learn the craft quickly and has been a ton of fun.

My family consists of two grown children, their spouses, two adorable grand-daughters, and one grand dog. My favorite activity is playing with my grand-daughters!

When the girls can’t play with their amazing grand-mother, my interests are reading and writing, yay! I started reading at a young age with the Nancy Drew mysteries and have continued to be an avid reader my whole life. My favorite reading material is romance in most of the genres, but occasionally other stories creep into my to-be-read pile, I don’t kick them out.

Some of the strange jobs I have held are a carnation grower’s worker, a trap club puller, a pizza hut waitress, a software engineer, an international trainer, and a business program manager. I took welding, drafting and upholstery in high school, a long time ago when girls didn’t take those classes, so I have an eclectic bunch of knowledge and experience.

And for something really unusual… I once had a racoon as a pet.

 

Join with me as I tell my stories, weaving real tidbits from my life in with imaginary ones. You’ll have to guess which is which. It will be a hoot!

Synopsis:

If you can’t stand the heat…

Lam Draeger’s deep wounds from the death of his young son and his subsequent divorce were still healing when he was saddled with his running his family’s cattle and rodeo stock ranch and the responsibility of raising his siblings and keeping them out of trouble. His every moment is devoted to running the ranch and business smoothly. He’s had no time to mourn his many losses or try to rebuild his personal life. And romance? Out of the question, no matter how sweet the temptation.

…don’t fall in love in the kitchen

Single mom Gwen Hobbs is right back where she swore she’d never be – cooking in the kitchen at the Draeger ranch just like her mom before her. But since her fiance and the father of her daughters walked out on her, taking all their savings with him, she’s forced to be practical. So she vows to ignore the attraction that hums between her and Lam and to stop dreaming of becoming a chef. But when Lam suggests she audition for a cooking competition, Gwen realizes that not all her dreams are out of reach, and her growing hopes extend far beyond a professionally tricked-out kitchen.

My Review:

Sweet on the Cowboy (The Draegers of Last Stand, Texas Book 1)Sweet on the Cowboy by Sasha Summers

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Both heartwarming and adorable. 5 Stars!

This was my first book by this author. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the story. Both main characters have had a rough patch. If you’ve read the blurb, then you know that Gwen has two adorable twin toddler daughters and a low-life, deadbeat, ex fiancé. After the jerk leaves her with literally nothing, Gwen moves in with her mother and takes over the position of cooking on the ranch that she works and lives on. It’s time for her mother to have a vacation. While Gwen cooks for the large Draeger family, her mother will take advantage of the time she has getting to know her adorable grand-children. Both she and her mother are happy with that arrangement.

But guess who is not happy?

Lam was not thrilled to walk into his kitchen and find a stranger. It doesn’t matter how attractive she is. She does not have his permission to work on his ranch. So you can guess that Lam is not happy with change. But as he gets to know Gwen and her adorable daughters better, the ice around his heart slowly begins to melt. Lam has a heartbreaking story. While you know what happened, the details are revealed over the length of the book. I was glad with that aspect because part of my enjoyment of the book, and how quickly I was turning the pages, was because I wanted to know the whole story.

Gwen and Lam’s relationship grew slowly over the course of the book. It was perfect, believable, and I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.

Sasha Summers has a talent for storytelling that will pull you in, keep you engaged, and result in the swoon-worthy, satisfied ending we all look for in our romances. I can’t wait to read about the other Draeger siblings when their books become available. This is definitely an author I look forward to reading more of. I absolutely recommend this book. Another fantastic book from Tule Publishing!

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Synopsis:

No, prima donna ballerina Jessica Carmichael isn’t interested in the rough-and-tumble rodeo cowboy she met in physical therapy. In fact, she’s actively uninterested in his cocky smile, and his go-with-the-flow attitude, and how his silly little bets make her work harder than ever to fix her knee. She’d like nothing more than to strangle him, if she wasn’t so busy thinking about kissing him.

Matt Walker’s best hope of getting back in the saddle is charming Jessica into teaching him ballet. He needs to get back on the bronc…even if he has to get there in tights. Only the uptight ballerina lives in a completely different world, one he wouldn’t touch with a ten-foot mechanical bull. But maybe the one thing she needs more than control is to lose control for once—with him.

📝My Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Cowboys Need Not ApplyCowboys Need Not Apply by Robert Tate Miller

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was my first book by Robert Tate Miller. I enjoyed it and would like to read more from this author. I describe this book as a low angst, clean romance. The story was entertaining and the characters were fun and witty, with the exception of Jessica, one of the protagonists. Jessica was not the friendliest. I would describe her as standoffish and pretentious. She is a ballerina brought up in a wealthy household so this has shaped her character. I was not her biggest fan for most of the book however, I appreciated how her character grew and developed into someone I could like as the story moved forward.

Matt was fun and witty, if not stubborn, from the beginning. While he was the complete opposite of Jessica in personality, they had good chemistry and I enjoyed watching their relationship develop. If I’m honest, which I am, Matt was the true hero of the book. It was Matt that helped me to enjoy this story. As I mentioned earlier, Jessica was not very personable as well as difficult to like. But by the end my opinion changed.

Briefly, I’ll tell you that both Matt and Jessica injured themselves doing what they each loved. Both ended up with similar knee injuries and at the same rehabilitation center. It was here they first meet. I won’t go into details because you should experience their relationship without any spoilers from me. While their friendship started off slowly, I enjoyed watching them together. Each had something to teach the other and this helped grow appreciation for their respective careers and what shaped them to be the people they are.

There were times, I wondered how Matt and Jessica would work in the end. They both had completely different personalities; completely different lives. In addition, they lived 2,000 miles from each other. Thankfully, though, they did work it out in the sweetest happily-ever-after.

As I understand it, this trope was new to this author. I want to say, I think he did a great job and I would love to read more, especially regarding cowboys. 😉

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂
