Kissed By a Cowboy REVIEW

I LOVE THIS SERIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I could shout that from the rooftops! This is one of my most favorite series EVER!!!!!!! I have gotten so invested in these characters, I just love it! I was so excited, soooooooo VERY excited when I was chosen for this review. I LOVED Counting on a Cowboy so much, I didn't think anything could top it. It may not top it, but Kissed by a Cowboy at least equals it! Cassidy spent the best times of her life at her great aunt's home in Wishing Springs, TX, right next door to the 4 Hearts Ranch. Her parents were both in one bad relationship after another, and her great aunt provided her the stability she needed.  She grew up following the Monahan boys around, especially Jarrod. One evening, she and Jarrod share a kiss. She puts her heart on the line, and he runs off to Montana. She feels jilted so she leaves, and gets married. When her own marriage ends in divorce, she vows she will  never have another relationship for fear of becoming her parents. She moves back into her aunt's home that has been willed to her following the death of her loved one, and makes a decision to live life free from men, just like her aunt. One thing after another leads to her needing Jarrod, and as it turns out the flame that grew from that shared kiss so long as was never fully extinguished.

We have the same cast of characters as in the previous books, but one need not have read the previous books to enjoy this one-even though I do HIGHLY suggest you pick up the others as well because the characters are great! I love the style of writing, and find myself feeling as if I'm really there. I made the comment this book series is like a Hallmark movie series, and anyone who knows me knows how much I LOOOOVE Hallmark movies! There's an element of suspense/turmoil, and the story line is believable. It progresses nicely, and the growth of the characters between the books is well done. Truly one of my favorites!

About the book: 

 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.

  1. I'm adding this to my TBR list. It definitely sounds like a book (and series) that I could get into.

    Thanks for linking up at DEAR Monday.
