Can the bad boy of Copper Ridge, Oregon, make good—and win the rodeo girl of his dreams? Kate Garrett keeps life simple—working hard, riding her beloved horses, playing cards with her brothers. Lately, though, she feels a bit restless, especially when family friend Jack Monaghan is around. Sexy and shameless, Jack is the kind of trouble you don't tangle with unless you want your heart broken. Still, Kate could always use his help in learning how to lasso someone a little less high risk… Jack can't pinpoint the moment the Garrett brothers' little sister suddenly stopped seeming so…little. Now here he is, giving flirting tips to the one woman who needs zero help turning him on. Love's a game he's never wanted to play. But he'll have to hurry up and learn how before the best thing that ever entered his life rides right back out again…
I have a soft spot for “Cowboy Romance” novels, and even softer spot for the Brother’s Best Friend/Best Friend’s brother cliches!! So Bad News Cowboy filled BOTH of those loves!!
Kate and Jack have a comfortable banter that only two people who have been close their entire lives can, a familial banter almost! (Which would make sense because Jack his the third Amigo in her older brother’s trio of Best Friends! And there’s something so relaxing about it, something that I just can’t get over!
I love how they slowly realized that they’ve been falling in love all these years! But even more? I love that Kate helps Jack to come to full realization of himself. The journey these two take – mostly while hiding their amazing chemistry from Kate’s clueless brothers – is everything I love about reading romance novels!
If you’ve ever been a fan of the romance genre in any way? I highly recommend Bad News Cowboy by Maisey Yates!
