one texas cowboy too many book cover
Carolyn Brown’s New York Times and USA Today bestselling cowboys prove that love is bigger in Burnt Boot, Texas

She’s got too many cowboys on her hands
Leah Brennan has always been the good girl of the Brennan family, groomed to become the matriarch of the clan. When a dark-eyed, tattooed, ponytailed bad boy saunters into her life, Leah knows he’s off-limits-but his mesmerizing gaze makes her forget everything she used to think was important. As town-wide tension rises, Leah wonders if love really can conquer all…

And the whole town’s taking sides
When Rhett O’Donnell roars into Burnt Boot on a hot July evening, the first thing he sees is a beautiful blonde. She puts a little extra giddy-up in his heartbeat, but when Rhett’s desire throws him into the middle of a love triangle and a hundred-year-old feud, he realizes that winning his cowgirl’s heart will be a lot more complicated than he thought.

Praise for The Trouble with Texas Cowboys:
“Touching and heartwarming, and completely believable…[the] characters are hilarious, colorful, and eccentric as ever; what a treat to be back in Burnt Boot!” -Fresh Fiction
“Ruggedly handsome cowboys…a plucky heroine…humorous, heartwarming storytelling…infectious banter…a solid, well-crafted plot…and the chemistry sizzles. One entertaining read.” -RT Book Reviews 4 stars

I was given a copy of this book by Netgalley for an honest review.

What do you do, when you have two Texas cowboys after you? One you know only wants to throw more fuel on the feud with your family, and the other you don’t know what he really wants. Leah meets Rhett when he roars into town on his motorcycle and  stops at the only store in town. Rhett causes quit a stir when he roars into Burnt Boot. When Leah’s Grandmother tells her to not date Rhett, or she will disinherit her, she picks love over her Grandma’s wishes.This is such a great book. If you love a good family feud, hunky men, and a good laugh, then pick up this book. I give ONE TEXAS COWBOY TOO MANY 5/5 STARS.

REVIEW FOR “IT HAD TO BE YOU” BY JILL SHALVIS

it had to be youAli Winters is not having a good day. Her boyfriend left her, everyone in town thinks she’s a thief, and now she’s about to be kicked out of her home. Her only shot at keeping a roof over her head and clearing her name is to beg for help from a police detective who’s as sexy as he is stern….

After a high-profile case goes wrong, Luke Hanover returns to his hometown for some peace and quiet. Instead he finds a bombshell brunette in a heap of trouble. As he helps Ali put her world back together, the pieces of Luke’s own life finally seem to fall into place. Is this the start of a sizzling fling? Or are Luke and Ali on the brink of something big in a little town called Lucky Harbor?

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON

This is a light-hearted, fun romance. I loved the character development, and the story line. Ali is about to lose her place to live and her boyfriend all in one day. The dog of a boyfriend does not tell her that he is not renewing the lease on the place that they are renting together  until he is completely moved out. He lets her know that Luke is coming back to Lucky Harbor to stay for a couple of weeks. He is a Detective with the San Francisco  police department and is recuperating from a bad case. He winds up letting Ali stay there until she finds a place.

When she is accused of stealing $50,000 from the office of her Ex. Luke helps her clear her name. The sexual tension between these two is very hot. I loved the book, and I gave it  5/5 stars.

REVIEW FOR “ALWAYS ON MY MIND” BY JILL SHALVIS

ALWAYS ON MY MINDTHERE’S NOTHING LIKE THE REAL THING
After dropping out of pastry school and
messing up her big break on a reality cooking show, Leah Sullivan needs to
accomplish something in her life. But when she returns home to Lucky Harbor, she
finds herself distracted by her best friend, Jack Harper. In an effort to cheer
up Jack’s ailing mother, Dee, Leah tells a little fib – that she and Jack are
more than just friends. Soon pretending to be hot-and-heavy with this hunky
firefighter feels too real to handle . . .

No-strings attachments suit
Jack just fine – perfect for keeping the risk of heartbreak away. But as Jack
and Leah break every one of their “just friends” rules, he longs to turn their
pretend relationship into something permanent. Do best friends know too much
about each other to risk falling in love? Or will Jack and Leah discover
something new about each other in a little town called Lucky Harbor?

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON

I just finished this book last night, and it was fantastic. Jill Shalvis knows how to great story. The characters and the plot line are amazing.  Leah and Jack have been friends ever since Leah moved into the house next to Jack. He has always been there for here through the hard times, when her Dad was always telling her she would never amount to nothing. He slowly started to fall in love with her and he didn’t know it. She has always loved him, but did not want to mess up their friendship. She wanted to prove that she could make something of herself, and that she was not always the screw up that her father kept calling her.

When she comes back to help her grandmother with her bakery while she recuperates, she ends up telling a little lie to Jack’s mother to make her feel better. Now her and Jack have to start acting like a real couple, but is it all an act or is it real.  In the end they both profess their love after Leah nearly walks out on Jack once again.

I loved this story, with all the laughter and humorous situations that the characters are put in. I highly recommend this book and the others in the series. I give it 5/ 5 stars.

Here are the books in the series.

“ALWAYS ON MY MIND” BY JILL SHALVIS

ALWAYS ON MY MIND

Today, I just started reading ALWAYS ON MY MIND BY JILL SHALVIS. This is part of her Lucky Harbor Series, featuring Jack Harper and Leah Sullivan, who are longtime friends who grew up together in Lucky Harbor. Only Jack does not know that Leah has had a thing for him ever since they were young, but now Leah tells a lie to his Mom that they are a couple so she won’t think she is the reason that Jack can’t find a lasting relationship. This makes his mom so happy that he can’t tell her it is not true, so they continue the lie. Will their friendship suffer, or will LOVE, AND COMMITMENT BLOOM OUT OF THIS LIE.

I am only 38 pages into the book and it is already getting good. So once I finish it I will give you my review and recommendations on the book.  So happy reading.  : )
