Once upon a cowboy - Lacy Williams

A princess on-the-run finds sanctuary where she least expects it... After nearly dying in an assassination attempt, Princess Alessandra of Glorvaird escapes to a place no one would ever think to look for her: small town Oklahoma and a ranch staffed by a herd of wooly, uncouth cowboys. One cowboy in particular gets under her skin, until she sees his softer side. She knows this interlude can't last forever, but that doesn't stop her from wishing it might... Former Navy SEAL Gideon Hale might've rescued the princess from freezing to death, but the soldier doesn't trust easily-or at all-especially when his gut tells him Alessandra is keeping secrets. But as Alessandra begins to fit into his life, he discovers another side to the princess-one that he can't help but like. When Alessandra's enemies close in, Gideon must fight to save the woman who has become so much more than a princess... "Once Upon a Cowboy" is a contemporary western retelling of the Snow White fairytale and Book 1 in the Cowboy Fairytales series.

My thoughts:
I could not really see the fairytale aspect to be honest, I had not guessed it was Snow White. But that does not matter. It was a contemporary romance after all.

This was a short audibook, and I did enjoy that. When it comes to audio short is good, and since it takes me ages to listen to it, it never feels too rushed. Even if they fell in love really fast, but since it took me 3 weeks then they fell in love pretty slow ;)

It's the story about a princess who is on the run after someone tried to kill her. Alessandra was pretty adaptable. She was sweet, she baked, I could not find any faults with her.

She ends up on Gideon's farm, and hey he is a really good guy too. He wants to protect her. They are just good people the both of them. And there is no real drama between them either. They fall in love and they will live happily ever after.

Though there is drama, the whole who is trying to kill her, and her family. And that is not resolved since there are more books out.

Conclusion:
A sweet romance.

I totally forgot about the narrator!
She did a good job, it was nice listening to her

    1. Well since it is so short there is a short drama at the end, it's easy to guess about what

  8. Not my genre, but still, there's something very appealing to me about the idea of a cowboy and fairy tale mashup. If someone manages to work in a fantasy element into this, I'd totally read it! :D

    1. Sadly no fantasy elements just ...well I guess it's the whole someone tried to kill her, she ran, she met cowboys and lived in their house. I guess that makes it Snow White
