Prepare yourselves everyone, it’s my stop on this gem of a book ‘There’s something about a Cowboy’ by the brilliant Rich Amooi! (Whoop whoop!!)
What they say:
Rule #1: No Dating Cowboys.
A fake fiancé doesn’t count, right? Oh boy . . .
Amy Weaver is tired of her dad meddling in her love life. Fed up, she hires an actor to play the part of her fake cowboy fiancé when she goes home for her grandpa’s ninetieth birthday. Sure, Luke Jenkins has got looks, charm, and muscular legs, but this is business, pure and simple. Things are fine and dandy until she finds out he’s a real cowboy, not an actor. Now, she’s stuck between a rock and his chiseled jawline, falling faster than a sack of horseshoes. How the heck is Amy supposed to ignore the sparks between them and stick to her rule of not dating cowboys? All bets are off.
The Review: Oh my wow. What. A. Book! K. Okay. Starting now.
So maybe you’ve heard of a film called The Wedding Date? It’s got Debra Messing in it and Dermot Mulroney (I never knew his name, he’s the guy from My Best Friend’s Wedding and a billion other films, that simply had to do that smoulder look and you’d be absolute putty!) Well that is what this reminds me of, in the best, non cliched, but sometimes cliched, but only when done perfectly, and only ever when it’s warranted (run, run for your lives, I’m not done gushing yet!!!).
So where was I? Oh yes. We meet Amy being dragged by her much younger, full of life and ready-to-have-fun niece into a club that of course has a bucking bronco in it. Amy, in all her drunkenness finds herself in the middle of a dare with the lovely, gorgeous Luke Jenkins (seriously, wow in every way), who is not looking for love by the way. Fireworks ensue!!!
When Amy then gets invited to her grandfather’s birthday (him and the grandmother are comic Gold!), she balks, knowing her dad has plans to (re)set her up with someone he deems suitable, her ex fiancé. A few misunderstandings later and she’s propositioning Luke, offering him money to come and stay for the few days (hence the correlation with The Wedding Date) and pretend to be her (new) fiancé. And so begins a bit of a war between old and new fiance, Dad and grandparents and all in between, with of course our leads constantly denying feelings for each other.
I adored this book. The romance was beautiful, the comedy epic, the vividness of the settings and scenes perfection. Very much my type of read and very much recommended. Thanks so much to Rachel’s Random Resources for the book in return for an honest review and for allowing me to be on this fantastic blog tour.
