Book Blurb: Miss Rodeo Wyoming Jodie Bryce is back from the big city to find that her childhood friend Teague Treadwell's rugged cowboy charm never looked better. But Teague thinks Jodie's success lifted her out of his reach, and now he's got to shed his bad boy image to be worthy of the girl next door.
My Thoughts: Once you start it, you can't put it down. Joanne Kennedy writes a very fun and catchy story that as a reader you easily get swept into. She plants seeds in your head in the beginning of the book and you could not wait to see how it plays out. Yes, she makes you wait until the last chapter to see how that seed she plants plays out. There were so interesting characters in this book. This is just an all around great book. The romance is very clean in this book, she is a shut the door kind of author.
Onto the two main characters in this book, Jodi and Teague. I always enjoy a story where it is two old flames from years ago who can not get past one another and end up in one another's life again. Teague is an all out cowboy and is still very interested in Jodi from the moment she comes back in town. Jodi is unsure, but finds that she is not able to fight what her heart truly wants. Of coarse, there is Courtney who likes to get in between them, since she wants Teague to be her boyfriend.
I think almost anyone who likes romance is going to like this book. As much as I read, it really takes a lot for a novel now to completely sweep me away and this one did so I strongly recommend this book. If anyone has been curious about the western romance genre, I think this book is excellent to get yourself started.
