Kissed by a Cowboy was a very enjoyable ending to a wonderful series. This story can be read as a stand alone, but is even more enjoyable if the first two books are read before it.
Poor Cassidy! I really felt for her and all the hurt that she experienced in her first marriage. I wanted her to open her heart to love, but she was just so scared! This frustrated me a bit, but I realized this was a symptom of how hard her life had been up to this point. I still liked her as a character and looked forward to when she would finally be willing to risk her heart.
Jarrod was a wonderful character, just like the other Monahan brothers have been in the previous books. I loved the way he handled things, whether it was trying to break through Cassidy’s defenses or trying to save the family ranch. I really enjoyed his character.
Another fun part of this book was getting to reconnect with the couples from books one and two. I loved reading about what was going on in their lives. This small town and the people in it felt so real to read about and I have enjoyed this entire collection very much.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher, through Litfuse Publicity, in exchange for an honest review.
Kissed by a Cowboy (Thomas Nelson, February 2016)
Cassidy was looking for a home and a place to belong . . . not for a cowboy to steal her heart.
Having lived through her parents’ endless string of “matrimonial bliss gone wrong,” Cassidy Starr knows when the odds are not in her favor. Divorced and humiliated, her faith on rocky ground, Cassidy is through with love. She’s been bucked off that horse far too many times. Instead, she returns to Wishing Springs, Texas, and the rundown farm she’s inherited from her great aunt Roxie. She’ll reopen the strawberry farm and a bed & breakfast and follow in her aunt’s footsteps, remaining forever-independent, happy . . . and single.
Rancher Jarrod Monahan’s hands are full running the ranch, looking after his ailing grandfather, and chasing down a group of rustlers on the loose. He’s pushed his longing for a family to the bottom of his list of priorities. Besides, he was in love once but ran scared and lost his shot at happiness. But suddenly, the biggest regret of his life has moved in next door with a wounded heart, determined to become a spinster . . . and that’s a challenge that Jarrod can’t pass up.
Jarrod sets his mind to breaking down the walls around Cassidy’s stubborn heart. How can he show her that a cowboy’s kiss lasts forever? For the good folks of Wishing Springs, falling in love has never been so much fun to witness.
