Cowboy Crazy - Joanne Kennedy


She kicked the country dust off her boots a long time ago…Sarah Landon’s Ivy League scholarship transformed her from a wide-eyed country girl into a poised professional. Her job at the Carrigan Oil Company has given her the sophisticated life she longed for, but when she meets her boss’s black-sheep brother, she realizes her roots are showing.

But he’s ready to remind her she’s a cowgirl at heart. Rebellious rodeo cowboy Lane Carrigan is determined to save the Wyoming community of Two Shot from the ravages of energy development, but Sarah’s convinced her old hometown needs a swift kick in the pants from the march of progress.

When a lapsed cowgirl collides with rodeo royalty, it’s bound to be a wild ride—and somebody’s going to end up in the dirt.

My thoughts:
A bit of cowboy loving, I should not say little. These two sure wanted each other at once and went for it. The trouble was the loving part, the passion was easy ;)

Sarah, I could understand her. Who wants to live in a dying town and with memories like that, so she left and created a new persona. Someone successful and from a good background, but she never lied. She is what Lane should be, but again also re-invented himself and threw away he privileged rich boy and tried his best to become a rancher and a cowboy. So they are opposites, however you look at it. But then does Sarah really want to be all prissy?

After having read 2 other books by her I did expect a bit of drama or something, but this was not that kind of book. This was all about the romance. Sarah struggles with her attraction as he is her boss's brother. And Lane really wants her. But she puts up quite the fight, good for her, he should work for it.

There is also a bit about her getting over something in the past and going back home. The town she never wanted to see again. She does have a few issues to deal with.

Conclusion:
All in all making this a sweet (and passionate) cowboy romance. Boy meets girl, the oldest story in the world, and just as lovely as always.

  1. I don't really read books like this, but if I did, there would have to be more to the story than just the romance.

    1. I did think for a moment, I need drama, but that was silly cos it would have been the kind of drama I hate in books. Lol. It was nice just to see them struggle, that is drama enough

  9. Isn't that always the way ... passion's easy to come by but true love takes so much work to maintain -- even in romance novels. Sigh.

  12. Hey hot cowboy, romance Wyoming setting...all about that! I grew up in Idaho and have been to WY plenty of times. I have also been to a few rodeos and met many cowboys and so I know first hand the appeal, aside from the manure on the boots. Sign me up! Ready for a cowboy read!

    1. I do not like manure on boots, makes me scream and run in circles (yes it happens often. My grandparents farm ;)
      Still if there only were a few cowboys around it would be so much more worth while
