GET THE BOOK: A Cowboy For Christmas

Disclaimer: At the request of the author, a Kindle edition of this book was sent, at no cost to me, for my honest review. Book Description:

She's jobless and has a wrongly ruined reputation, so this works out perfectly ... until she meets the cowboy running the place.

Brent built his dream with determination and his two hands; he's responsible for everything that happens there. secretly, he feels responsible that his former partner died. He also doesn't hide his belief that Missy won't stick around. Women tend to take off on him so why would she be any different?

They both have a past that can ruin their future. Can he trust her to stay? Can she trust him with her heart?

My Book Review:

Mix a city girl ... a cowboy ... horses and a ranch together.... and you will have combustible sparks of romance all over the place!

Missy Nelson had worked in advertising in Las Vegas until an unfortunate scene with her boss left her jobless and with a damaged reputation. When a call from her estranged late brother Ben's attorney summoned her to Oregon, she knew this was going to be her chance for a new start. Unfortunately, sexy cowboy rancher and Ben's business partner, Brent Williams thought otherwise. Each had their secrets and mistrust for each other when they first met, but there was undeniable attraction and sexual tension in the air. Determined to learn the ropes and be an equal partner in the ranch with Brent, Missy wants to prove that she belongs at Ocean View Stables. Brent thinks the city girl won't be able to keep up with the ranch lifestyle, other women hightailed it out of there, so what would make her any different? Step inside Ocean View Stables and see if Missy can leave the city behind, and if she can tame her wild cowboy in A Cowboy For Christmas. 

A Cowboy For Christmas was a fun, easy book to read leading into the holiday season. The storyline was well written, and the characters were so much fun to follow. I found myself unable to put the book down, I just had to find out if Missy and Brent could let go of their pasts, and trust each other with their deep held secrets, and learn to just let go and love each other. The sparks that flew between them was very entertaining, I loved how the storyline developed, it had a nice mix of romance and cowboy / ranch lifestyle ... it let my imagination run wild. I wouldn't mind if Santa put a sexy cowboy under my Christmas tree! This is definitely a book that fans of contemporary romance and cowboy romance will surely enjoy!
