NEVER FALL IN LOVE WITH A COWBOY
Jessa Mae Love is done with relationships. No matter how tempting he might be, she cannot–will not–fall for a man like Lance Cortez. The outrageously handsome cowboy is practically a living legend in Colorado, as famous for riding bulls as he is for breaking hearts. What would a big-time rodeo star like him see in a small-town veterinarian who wears glasses, rescues animals, and cries when watching rom-coms? Turns out, plenty.
Raising bulls, riding the circuit, and looking after his ailing father–Lance never stands still for long. Yet Jessa catches his attention, and the more she tries to resist him, the more he wants her. When she agrees to move to the ranch to keep an eye on Lance’s dad, Jessa tells him they have to keep it professional: no flirting, no sweet talk, and definitely no kissing. But with Jessa now living under his roof, that’s easier said than done. (Goodreads)
Hello there cowboy! I think I’m in love with these Cortez boys. They are just the kind of cowboy you want to knock on your door, or sort of break in 😉 I started reading this series in the wrong order, but I instantly fell in love with it and its characters that I couldn’t put the book down and had to know what the first book was about.
“It’s not like he’s a prize. He’s a technology consultant, for God’s sake. Not Chris Hemsworth.”
Jessa is a hopeless romantic, she has had bad luck with men and love, but when she starts interacting with her father’s best friend son, Lance Cortez, she gives love one last chance. On the other hand, the only thing on Lance’s mind is bull riding, at least until he catches a glimpse of Jessa’s curve.
“She couldn’t help it her heart had always been a sucker for romance.”
Jessa is a caring, sweet character, she recently lost her father, and tries to help Cortez senior in all that she can. She’s also very fun and sarcastic along with her book club girlfriends, who are always willing to help her whenever she needs it or is in trouble. And Jessa’s mom is a bonus! Their relationship might be a long distance one, but she’ll always be there for her daughter.
“Hell hath no fury like a scorned woman’s friends.”
Lance is the Cortez’s oldest son, who is trying to focus on himself and his career after taking care of his family for a long time. He can’t have any distractions, especially Jessa. But then things start getting complicated and even though both he and Jessa set boundaries at the beginning, things start getting complicated.
“I’ll pick you up. Six o’clock. Leave Pork Chop at home and wear jeans.”
I am just in love with these books. But I do have to warn you, there is some back story that is mentioned in book one that although mentioned in book two, it is better to know all the facts. So maybe read them in order, unlike me 🙂 Hometown Cowboy, is a fun, romantic book with a story that leaves you wanting for more. Definitely a must-read!
