Tall, Dark, and Cowboy by Joanne Kennedy

Publication Date: November 1st 2011
Genre: Western Romance
Heat level: R
Reviewed For: Sourcebooks

In the wake of a nasty divorce, Lacey Bradford heads for Wyoming where she's sure her old friend will take her in. But her high school pal Chase Caldwell is no longer the gangly boy who would follow her anywhere. For one thing, he's now incredibly buff and handsome, but that's not all that's changed... 

Chase has been through tough times and is less than thrilled to see the girl who once broke his heart. But try as he might to resist her, while Lacey's putting her life back together, he's finding new ways to be a part of it.

My Thoughts: This was a fun read. In the beginning I was a little unsure if I liked Lacey or not. But, I love Joanne Kennedy and I knew she wouldn't fail me. And she didn't. A few chapters in, I started to understand Lacey and was rooting for her to find herself and love all at the same time. Chase also starts out a little unliked. But, I can see why he reacted to Lacey the way he did. But don't worry, it doesn't take these two very long at all to get lip locked and realize they want each other very much.

Besides the hot and steamy romance, there is a lower lining plot. Lacey has left home because her ex-husband has taken advantage of a lot of people. Since he's disappeared, they are coming after her. One man inperticular is after her, and he has a history of hurting her in the past.

This is a book you can easily read in an afternoon. You will be sucked in and when its over, your going to be wishing for more.
