Getting back in the saddle has never felt so good…

Brett Harrison tried marriage once and isn’t anxious for another round. So when his meddling twin sister sets him up on a dating site, he seriously considers strangling her and cancelling. Luckily for him, he’s too much of a gentleman to act on those impulses, and when he meets Melly Walker, he wonders if it’s time to get back in the saddle.

Melly knows exactly where her previous marriage went wrong. She was dazzled by her ex’s big-city charm and strayed too far from her roots. This time, she’s going with tried and true–a dyed-in-the-wool cowboy. Her first few dates net her more duds than studs, but when she meets Brett, she’s ready to get more than just her feet wet.

The principles of trust and compromise are great in theory, but when Melly discovers Brett has his eye on more than just her curves, she questions her judgment and his motives. Is Brett ready to drop his dreams for something as unreliable as love?

Warning: Contains virtual hat-tipping, real-time kissing and sexy times. Yee haw!

Source: ARC from Samhain Publishing via NetGalley is a fun multi-author series revolving around an online dating site, where divorced and widowed cowboys can search for ladies of a similar background. The website is pretty much the only connection between the three stories, so they can be read in any order without missing anything. I read this one second and as fun and quick as it is, I have to say it was my least favourite.

When his twin sister not only signs him up for a dating site but also arranges a meeting for him, Brett is less than impressed. However, within moments of meeting Melly, he’s swiftly changing his mind. She might be a bit clumsy, but he thinks she’s beautiful and the two of them hit it off instantly. Their chemistry sizzles from the start and it’s all too easy to let things take their course.

Melly’s a nice woman, Brett’s a nice man, they get on well and everything’s all very nice. Until the conflict shows up, which for me was a bit overblown and made to seem so much worse than it actually was. It’s fun enough, but in the end neither it nor the characters were particularly memorable. I enjoyed reading it as part of the series, though I probably wouldn’t read it again.

Nothing Like a Cowboy is out June 23rd!
