Once Upon a Cowboy by Maggie McGinnis

Happy Release Day!!!

In this sexy Whisper Creek romance for readers of Kristan Higgins, Susan Mallery, and Molly O'Keefe, a red-hot cowboy uses some Montana magic to give a reclusive beauty her happily ever after.

Yoga instructor Jessalyn Alcott radiates peace, calm, and serenity—on the outside. Inside, she still feels like the broken, desperate girl from the trailer park. She's got dark secrets she can't share, which is why she never lets her relationships go beyond the third date. But when she travels to the Whisper Creek dude ranch for a friend's wedding, Jess is enchanted by a cowboy whose deep blue eyes, dimpled smile, and rock-hard body make it tough to remember why she keeps running scared.

Cole Driscoll has struggled to find his place on a family ranch where he's always played second fiddle. His future might be uncertain, but he's sure of one thing: He wants Jess by his side. Easier said than done. When it comes to getting close, she's full of excuses, and he longs to fix the hurt he sees in her eyes. Now that she's at Whisper Creek, there's nothing he wants more than to break down the walls around her heart and heal her pain with the power of love.

Kathie's Review:

This is the third book in the Whisper Creek Series by Maggie McGinnis. I've read the second one, A Cowboy's Christmas Promise, and loved it. 

You know, we read romance novels to follow the main characters' journey to an HEA. I expect there to be a few road bumps along the way. I want them to earn their HEA. In this book, the heart fail is huge! And dark. Jess had a hard life...like scary, heartbreakingly hard. I really wanted her to get that HEA, that's for sure. 

Once again, Montana is almost a supporting character here. I wanted to breathe the air, ride the horses, play in the waterfall! I also wanted to HARM the bad guys here...

Jess has been hiding from her past but it catches up to her just as she's leaving Boston for Hayley's wedding at Whisper Creek. Hayley was the star of the second book, and we saw Cole and Jess there, too.

I thoroughly enjoyed seeing Jess take hold of her destiny, and stand up for what was right for her. Sometimes we have to hold the alpha male back and just do it ourselves...and I was very proud of Jess. And then I wanted to slap some bad guys, again!

This is one of those books that you might want to read when you have a goodly chunk of time to read. Because you aren't going to want to put it down until that HEA (and what a GOOD one it was, too!) comes together. Yes, I highly recommend this book.

Thank you, NetGalley and Random House Publishing Group - Loveswept, for the opportunity to read this book.
