The Last Cowboy

I still had a little twinkle in my heart when I started reading this one. Maybe the first collection was just a fluke! Maybe cowboy season could be a positive experience after all! Maybe I don’t need to start rolling my eyes at the mention of every hunky cowboy forever! Maybe I could read three in a row that didn’t make me steaming mad! Maybe…!

Or maybe not. Let go of this fantasy now, I am warning you.

Claimed By A Cowboy

Fair warning: I am primed to hate this book. I am blinded to any positive aspects this book might have. I will see only its faults, and I will present these faults to you as though they are glaring and insurmountable. I will argue that this is worst book ever written. We’re four weeks into cowboy season and we’ve racked up an 75% suck rate, so I am in no damn mood to be charitable or patient or open-minded. The only comfort my cold, black heart will find in reading this book is being right about terrible it is surely going to be. Sound fun? Yay!

Certified Cowboy

Hey dudes! We’re two books into cowboy month! Actually it will probably go a bit longer than a month because I have SO MANY cowboys in my corral thanks to Harlequin’s leap day cowboy sale. The only thing I love more than cowboy romance novels is not paying full price for cowboy romance novels, AM I RIGHT OR WHAT? Actually that’s not true. The only thing I love more than cowboy romance novels is their covers! Oh boy, what is going on with that pony? Not his best angle. I also really enjoy the cowboy’s face. He makes riding a bucking horse look effortless – like, really, he’s putting no effort into it. He might as well be sitting on a couch. Also is it just me or is he gazing longingly at his own crotch?

Long, Tall and Tempted #3: Cowboy Christmas

We’re almost to the end of this…um…collection, I guess you would call it? Whatever! It’s almost over! And don’t worry, this one is just as gut-wrenchingly awful as the others have been. Oops, I mean ROMANTIC. Oops, no, I meant barf.

Long, Tall and Tempted #2: Paper Husband

Long, Tall And Tempted #1: Redbird

WELCOME TO COWBOY SEASON!!!!

This little guy – I mean, BIG guy! Great big huge guy! So big! It’s a good size! – is more of a romance novella than a romance novel. It’s very short (no offense!!!!), but it comes in a collection of 3, all of similar length (which is fine!), so all together they give the appearance of being a regular-size book. Which is…fine. Look, frankly, it’s not very satisfying. OKAY I SAID IT, ARE YOU HAPPY NOW?!

I love the smell of leather in the morning!

No post today – yesterday was my birthday and I’m still sleeping it off. But don’t worry! Starting next week we’ll be kicking off COWBOY MONTH: all the ass-less chaps, jingling spurs, sweat-lathered animals and testosterone-crazed men you can shake a stick at. There will probably be some ladies hanging around doing lady-things, too. Sex also! Can I get a YEEHAW?
