Audio Book Review: Once Upon a Cowboy by Lacy Williams


I have really been enjoying listening to audio books for the past couple of years. Recently I began listening to these stories using my phone and the Audible app and it has made it so much easier for me to listen anytime I want to. It has been very fun.

Lately I have begun listening to the Cowboy Fairytales series by Lacy Williams. I have listened to the first two books in the series so far, and I highly recommend them! The narration is very good. I enjoy the narrator’s voice and find that she truly pulls me into the story.

And the story…well these books are combining a couple of my favorite things to read about..fairytale princesses and cowboys. It seems like a funny mix, but the author does a great job of creating seemingly realistic scenarios and characters, which make the events that occur in the books totally believable to me. It has just been such a joy to listen to these stories.

Once Upon a Cowboy is the first book of the series and the two main characters, Alessandra and Gideon, were so easy to connect with. Their backstories were interesting and the attraction that began to bloom between them was perfect. I love fairytale princess novels for the happy feelings they leave me with and Once Upon a Cowboy did just that.

(5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.


once-upon-a-cowboyA princess on-the-run finds sanctuary where she least expects it… After nearly dying in an assassination attempt, Princess Alessandra of Glorvaird escapes to a place no one would ever think to look for her: small town Oklahoma and a ranch staffed by a herd of wooly, uncouth cowboys. One cowboy in particular gets under her skin, until she sees his softer side. She knows this interlude can’t last forever, but that doesn’t stop her from wishing it might… Former Navy SEAL Gideon Hale might’ve rescued the princess from freezing to death, but the soldier doesn’t trust easily-or at all-especially when his gut tells him Alessandra is keeping secrets. But as Alessandra begins to fit into his life, he discovers another side to the princess-one that he can’t help but like. When Alessandra’s enemies close in, Gideon must fight to save the woman who has become so much more than a princess… “Once Upon a Cowboy” is a contemporary western retelling of the Snow White fairytale and Book 1 in the Cowboy Fairytales series.
