Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Series: Forever Texan #1
Title: Taming the Texas Cowboy
Author: Charlene Sands
Publisher: Texas Born, Tule Publishing

This is a lovely easy cowboy romance with a taciturn hero who thinks he and his family is cursed to not find true love and a heroine who is patience personified, a caring veterinarian who has a magical way with animals. They are both attracted to each other but she’s just about given up on him ever caring for her. When a fire destroyed her surgery and home, however, Maddie Brooks is offered a place to stay and work on the 2 Hope Ranch of Trey Walker. It is meant to be a business only arrangement but love has a way of changing even the best laid plans!
Whilst Trey’s curse beliefs are somewhat tenuous and difficult to reconcile with the ranch-owning, hardworking, rugged cowboy persona and his push me – pull you attitude to Maddie sometimes drove me mad, it is still an enjoyable story to escape into. The characters are great, easy to relate to (and feel like figuratively hugging or throttling at times). Maddie’s interactions with animals are superbly portrayed and the ending great. I enjoyed reading it!
Many thanks to the publishers for gifting me a copy of this novel, via NetGalley, with no obligation. This is my honest review.
After a disaster destroyed nearly everything Maddie Brooks owned, Trey Walker offered the petite redhead shelter at 2 Hope Ranch. A veterinarian, Maddie was smart, sexy, and good with animals… Impossible to resist, yet Trey is convinced he is cursed when it comes to women.
The temporary arrangement Maddie made with Trey was supposed to be strictly business. Easy since Maddie had tried and failed to catch the handsome cowboy’s eye for a year. She thought she was so over him…until he kissed her.
