Review of Tall, Dark and Cowboy

Tall, Dark and Cowboy
Joanne Kennedy
Sourcebooks Casablanca
ISBN 9781402251443

   Lacey Bradford is in the middle of a nasty divorce and her ex's men are on her heels. She heads to Wyoming in search of an old high school friend, Chase Caldwell. Chase has changed, alot! He is no longer the geek she remembers; but a fine hunk of a cowboy. Lacey hopes for his help; but he has hardened from bitterness and loss of all he holds dear.
   Chase is determined to send Lacey away; but the attraction he had for her when in school is still buried deep inside of him. Sparks fly between the two and an attraction that neither can deny. As they try to comes to terms with their new relationship, Lacey is also trying to build a new life for herself. As hard as Chase tries to push her away, he has to admit he wants her in his life rather then being alone.
   For the cowboy lovers out there, this is a good story for you. Romance is in the air and practically sizzles off the page. Lacey is a former trophy wife who has some difficulty letting go of her past. She wants to start over fresh and be her own woman; but she has alot of baggage she is carrying. Chase also has emotional baggage he is carrying because of Lacey's ex-husband. Will the two be able to get past their issues and form some kind of alliance together? The storyline is okay; but it did have a tendency to drag a bit. Krystal, Chase's employee, is somewhat of a burden to the story and I have to say I was happy when we didn't hear from her again. She was a bit over the top. All in all this is not a bad read. It is a story of love, creed, loss, and forgiveness. Let's not forget the sexy cowboy!
   I wish to thank Sourcebooks for providing me with an ARC to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review. I was not compensated in anyway except for receiving the book to review.

I give Tall, Dark and Cowboy 3.5 out of 5 stars
