I had to switch soaps because it drove me nuts to smell the stuff. How does one night stick with a man like that?
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
You know, this might be the first Cowboy Romance I think I’ve ever read. And I loved it. It’s no surprise, really, and not because I’m a Texan and I know firsthand how chivalrous, tough, and hardworking real life cowboys are. No, it’s because Faleena Hopkins knows how to write a darn good romance.
Cocky Cowboy was sweet, it was sexy, and in some places it seriously threw me for a loop. I’m talking holy moley, that did not just happen, please say it isn’t so kind of loop. That was a twist I did not see coming, and it’s one of those things that keeps you reading on the edge of your proverbial or literal seat to find out how it turns out.
On top of that, Jaxson Cocker is one hot cowboy. He’s kind of that strong, silent type who would rather spend time with his cows than carousing at the bar, and the kind of guy who, when he does carouse at the bar, still treats women with respect. And the kind of guy who will lay a dude out for being a douche to the girl he’s been in love with since he was 8 when he sees her for the first time after like 20 years!
Rachel was also a fun character to read. She was a girl who knew what she wanted, and was willing to put that aside when she thought it was the right thing to do, but sometimes no matter what you do, there’s always going to be that one guy you just can’t get out from under your skin.
I loved how things from the past were revealed in this book, and how even though this book is about Jaxson, we get to see some of the other family and their crazy antics.
If you’re not reading this series yet, what on earth are you waiting for? You don’t want to miss them.
