A to Z & Review - Cowboy Delight

A to Z Challenge - C

Cowboys

I love to read most contemporary books with a cowboy in it. I'm thinking it's because I'm from Texas and though there aren't many cowboys in the city I'm still drawn to the books.

Melissa's Review:

Lauren Allen is driving several hours to go meet her fiancee's parents. Luck however is not in her favor when her car decides to break down on the side of the road with no help in sight. She hoofs it back towards town and finally sees a diner and stops in. The patrons of the diner are all cowboys eating lunch and super nice. The waitress/owner of the diner lets her cool off and even goes out of her way to help arrange one of the cowboys to driver to the rest of the trip.

The novella itself was pretty good, it satisfied my cowboy urge. It will however bother quite a few readers since it does contain cheating. So if you're okay with that in books, and you love cowboys I'd suggest this novella. If you're not okay with cheating in books, I'd suggest you steer clear.

  1. Oh well darn! I was thinking yes, yes, yes! But the cheating is usually a deal breaker for me. Darn. Though damn where are these diners full of cowboys?!! Totally jealous! lol

    1. I knew some readers have dealbreakers like that, had to mention it since it's a short novella and I'd say 1/3rd or 1/2 of the book is cheating. I'd like to visit that diner as well hehehe

  2. Well, it depends on the circumstances of said cheating... I'll see ;)

  3. I don't like cheating at all, but I don't have problems reading a story with that subject in it. I mean, if it is a characteristic of a certain character and it serves to the story, I follow its course and see where it brings me. Of course, I may very well despise the character all the time... You got me curious, especially because I do like cowboys soooo, guess what I've just got? ;)
