I love romance and want to see everything work out for the best and add in a little country with a few horses and I am sold. Although I couldn't remember the name of the book that I read, the authors name sounded familiar and the cover had me knowing that I needed to read this book. Kissed by a Cowboy (A Four of Hearts Ranch Romance) by Debra Clopton sounded so perfect to find out if Cassidy could overcome her childhood hurts and build her new life as an adult. With a little help from Amazon and my blog (thank goodness I have that to keep me straight), I found the previous book that I read with Debra Clopton here.
Having lived through her parents’ endless string of “matrimonial
bliss gone wrong,” Cassidy Starr knows when the odds are not in her
favor. Divorced and humiliated, her faith on rocky ground, Cassidy is
through with love. She’s been bucked o_ that horse far too many times.
Instead, she returns to Wishing Springs, Texas, and the rundown farm
she’s inherited from her great aunt Roxie. She’ll reopen the strawberry
farm and a bed & breakfast and follow in her aunt’s footsteps,
remaining forever-independent, happy . . . and single.
Jarrod Monahan’s hands are full running the ranch, looking after his
ailing grandfather, and chasing down a group of rustlers on the loose.
He’s pushed his longing for a family to the bottom of his list of
priorities. Besides, he was in love once but ran scared and lost his
shot at happiness. But suddenly, the biggest regret of his life has
moved in next door with a wounded heart, determined to become a spinster
. . . and that’s a challenge that Jarrod can’t pass up. Jarrod
sets his mind to breaking down the walls around Cassidy’s stubborn
heart. How can he show her that a cowboy’s kiss lasts forever? For the
good folks of Wishing Springs, falling in love has never been so much
fun to witness.
I was so excited to read this cowboy romance and was immediately drawn in and had trouble putting down the book. Cassidy Starr was trying to overcome all of the problems with her past including her parents mistakes, childhood dysfunction, and her divorce. Cassidy was coming back to her aunt's house to start her life over and her childhood friend, Jarrod, lives right across the way. But she has sworn off any help or relationships so she continues to push him away. In order to find out what happens in this push and pull relationship, you need to pick up the book and read it!! I hope that you check this out at your local library or bookstore to see what a great book it is for yourself. I know that you will enjoy it as much as I did!!
