Review: The Cowboy’s Christmas Bride by Laurie LeClair


May Contain Spoilers

I thought I’d give The Cowboy’s Christmas Bride a go because it’s about a down and out country singer, and the hero is an former bull rider with a young daughter.

Review: Then Came You by Jeannie Moon

May Contain Spoilers

I decided to give Then Came You a spin because the hero is a former NFL player, and because Mia, the heroine, is raising her nephew, Ben. I really enjoyed this one until Mia’s mom dropped in for a visit and then it went off the rails for me. Her mother’s only purpose in the story was to cause grief for everyone else, and to make Mia feel like crap about herself. The drama felt so forced, and I don’t understand why nobody told her mother to take a hike. Like, right now, this instant, and don’t let the door hit you on the way out.

Review: Kane by Sinclair Jayne

May Contain Spoilers

I have to admit that secret baby stories aren’t my favorite, but that was actually what I enjoyed most about Kane. I have been working my way slowly through the American Extreme Bull Riders series, and since Sinclair Jayne is a new to me author, I decided to request Kane from the publisher. I usually enjoy second chance at love romances, but this one didn’t convince me that Sky and Kane are made for each other. There were so many hard stops in their relationship, I despaired at them ever working out their differences.

Review: Austin by Jeannie Watt

May Contain Spoilers

Jeannie Watt is one of my favorite short romance authors. I love her settings, her characters always connect with me, and her writing style is engaging. I was very excited to see she had an entry in the American Extreme Bull Riders series, because she gets cowboys, and she gets the women who love said cowboys.  I breezed right through Austin, and it didn’t disappoint.
