Second Chance Cowboy by A.J. Pine

Author:  A.J. Pine
Date released:  February 27, 2018
Rating:  5 Cowboy Stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐🤠

I just love it when a books gives me chills because of the intensity and realness of the book.  This is it you guys.!  My first 5 Star read of 2018 and I am proud to say that this year is starting off great for cowboys.  From the very first page, I knew that I was gonna love this book and its characters.  This story is about love, second chances, and family which really touched me in a wonderful way.  The intensity of their relationship was so powerful and realistic that it made me tingle. 

We have Ava and Jack, high school sweethearts who had the sweetest love ever at the tender age of 18.  Ava makes a huge mistake by sending Jack away and unbeknownst to Jack, she is pregnant. Fast forward 10 years, Jack comes back to town to attend his father's funeral and is surprised to learn that he has inherited a ranch and a vineyard along with his 2 brothers. Looking to sell the vineyard, he enlists the help of Ava, the girl who crushed his heart and renowned grape expert. Ava holds a big secret and when Jack finds out, it's pure gold. Throw in an adorable 10 year old,  a grumpy brother, and a sarcastic brother, you have yourself an emotional, grounded, and entertaining romance .

As far as negatives goes....there wasn't any for me. I loved Jack, the cowboy-at-heart lawyer who did not forget how to get his hands dirty. I adored Ava, a single mom, who was passionate for grapes as much as she was passionate about her son.  Their relationship was realistic, passionate, and grounded and I completely felt their chemistry straight to my core.  There is a scene at the 89% that will absolutely pull at your heart strings. Seriously, Owen is a great kid and a wonderful addition to this story.

Well, you guessed it.   I absolutely loved this book and I loved Ava and Jack together.  The brothers added a nice family dynamic to this along with sweet, little Owen.   It was so grounded, raw, and heartfelt. Go pick this up pronto!!!

Cowboy Up by Harper Sloan

Author:  Harper Sloan
Release date: December 19, 2017  

This is my first review in 2018 and I must say that it started on a sweet note. Cowboy Up is the third installment in the Coming home series and it follows Clayton, the third and eldest sibling to Quinn and Maverick.  We get small doses of Clayton throughout the series and I was intrigued with his character, so I jumped out of my boots when this book was released.  Clayton is portrayed as the head of the family, loves to maintain control, and broody, but here comes timid Caroline and she makes him lose all of his control.  When poor Caroline falls on hard times, Clayton and his large…cowboy boots comes to the rescue and one of the most sappiest couples that I have ever seen or read happens and flourish.
Now I absolutely loved Clayton and his cowboy mannerisms and he most definitely made me swoon. ;)  He developed as a character and I loved him with Caroline and his cute nickname for her.  Their chemistry was off the charts and the …
