My Review

HER TEMPORARY COWBOY is a heartwarming story about a rodeo cowboy who grew up in the foster system and has made his two best friends his family, and a woman with a wonderful family who runs her family's ranch but who feels unheard and unseen. They find themselves dating by her family's assumptions and then mistakenly engaged when two kids witness what they think is an engagement and they never get a chance to explain. Things just get more complicated from there. It's a fun, light story with some delightful characters and a few romantic sparks.

I liked all the characters. There are quite a few of them, but I didn't have any issues keeping them all straight. Both Lucky and Lizzie were equally frustrating at parts. Communication and honesty would have cleared things up between them, but instead they let outside pressure and expectations as well as their own inner doubts fuel things. Eventually they do figure it out, with some cute moments as well as a few sad ones along the way, to a very satisfying happily-ever-after.

I did struggle with this story. I had a hard time completely buying into the premise in how the story unfolded. There was also a lot of redundancy and more telling instead of experiencing the story than I would have liked. I've enjoyed other books by this author, so I think this one wasn't quite right for me, but others won't have the same issues. Regardless, it was still a cute read.

In the end, was it what I wished for? I wanted more from this story or to connect with it better, but it was still a light, fun, heartwarming story. Fans of the genre should enjoy it.
