The Trouble With Cowboys by Denise Hunter

About the Book:

Only one pair of boots—and the cowboy wearing them—can get Annie out of the mess she’s in.

Annie Wilkerson is Moose Creek’s premiere horse trainer and equine columnist for Montana Living. Money is tight as she tries to put her kid-sister through college and provide for her young nephew. When Annie’s column is cancelled, she’s given first shot at a new lovelorn column—and she can’t afford to turn it down. Only problem is . . . Annie’s never been in love.

Always resourceful, she reluctantly strikes a deal with the town’s smooth-talking ladies’ man Dylan Taylor: She’ll work with his ailing horse, Braveheart, if he’ll help her answer the reader letters.

Working closely with Dylan is harder than Annie imagined, and she quickly realizes she may have misjudged him. But her unwavering conviction that cowboys are nothing but trouble has kept her heart safe for years. And she can’t risk getting hurt now.

The more Annie tries to control things, the more they fall apart. Her feelings are spinning out of control, and her sister’s antics are making life increasingly more difficult. Annie knows she needs to turn the reins over to God, but surrender has never come easily.

When Dylan reveals his feelings for her, Annie doesn’t know what to trust—her head or her heart. The trouble with this cowboy is that he might just be exactly what she needs.

My Review: 

4 Stars

The Trouble with Cowboys, is book three in Denise Hunter's Big Sky Romance series and while characters do overlap between the books, they can be easily read on their own. I have read book 2 also and have the first book setting on my shelf waiting to be read, which I will hopefully soon. This book is so much fun to read and is a nice break from some of the deeper books out there. Denise writes very humorously and many times I was laughing out loud but she also has the emotional side to where you cheer the characters on and get mad at them too.

I really enjoyed Annie's character and her passion to help her sister through college and life. She is a strong person that is willing to put her life on the side to help others. I am thankful though that she does learn to live her own life and allow someone to love her as she deserves.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes a good, clean romance. This is a great beach or vacation read. Great job Denise on writing a great book.

* I received this book from Thomas Nelson through Litfuse Publicity. Thank You!
