Kissed by a Cowboy

Kissed by a Cowboy 

by Debra Clopton    

Contemporary Romance
Thomas Nelson
Book 3 in the A Four of Hearts Ranch Romance series 

This February curl up with Debra Clopton's newest Four of Hearts Ranch Romance series, Kissed by a Cowboy.

Having lived through her parents' divorces, Cassidy Starr knows when the stakes are not in her favor. Divorced herself and humiliated, her faith on rocky ground Cassidy is done with love. Finished. So over it. 

Instead, she's returned to Wishing Springs Texas and the rundown farm she's inherited from her great aunt Roxie. She'll reopen the organic strawberry farm and a Bed & Breakfast --- follow in her aunt's footsteps and remain forever-independent, happy . . . and single.
Rancher Jarrod Monahan's hands are full running the ranch, helping to look after his ailing grandfather and track rustlers on the loose. He's pushed all longings for a family of his own right off of his list of priorities. Besides he was in love once and ran scared and lost his shot. But suddenly the regret of his life has moved in next door with a wounded heart determined to become a spinster . . . and that's not happening on his watch.

Suddenly sparks are flying as Jarod has one thing taking priority and that's breaking down the walls around Cassidy's stubborn heart. He's going to prove that being kissed by this cowboy comes with a lifetime commitment and the matrimonial bliss she's given up on.

And the good folks of Wishing Springs have decided that falling in love has never been so fun to watch.

My thoughts:  KISSED BY A COWBOY is the third book in Debra Clopton’s Four of Hearts Ranch Romance series. The first two books were Betting on Hope and Counting on a Cowboy. KISSED BY A COWBOY does standalone, but previous characters are all the way through the book. 

I loved Ms. Clopton's Mule Hollow series with Love Inspired and was so excited when Thomas Nelson picked her up to write her cowboy romances. But I didn't enjoy any of the books in this series as much as I did her previous books. I still wasn't ready to give up on her and I eagerly anticipated each book hoping it would be quirky and fun and spellbinding 

KISSED BY A COWBOY isn't the same quality of writing that I had enjoyed in her previous book, and it felt rather flat and one dimensional to me.  Cassidy is divorced and I have never been through that but she came across and really focused on her divorce and as such somewhat a man-hater and she treated Jarrod awful. 

I admired Jarrod a lot. He is sweet and caring. I would love a neighbor like him. And of course the towns quirky characters, the vet, and his pot-belly pig, the mayor and his twin, and the beautician ladies all stole the show. 

3 stars. 

I received a copy of this book from the Litfuse Publicity Group in exchange for only my honest review.
