The one thing that kept me interested in the story was the mystery surrounding the Circle Bar K Ranch. Even though it was a bit cheesy, it was interesting and was nicely woven into the story. ~ Kitty, Guilty Pleasures
Shy computer specialist and amateur chef Tina Hayes travels to Circle Bar K ranch to scatter her father’s ashes in the Tetons of Wyoming. Once there, her father’s old army buddy and his cast of cowboy ranch hands persuade her to stay on as the ranch’s cook for a while. It’s not a hard decision, especially when she meets Wyatt McCabe, a man who makes her heart gallop like no one else. But with so many cowboys to choose from, can Wyatt show Tina that he’s the only one for her?

When I started reading Must Love Cowboy’s I thought that it would be an interesting read about a woman mourning the loss of her grandfather and fulfilling his legacy only to meet a man that brought her out of her shell and showed her what love was really about. Unfortunately, that’s not what I got.
Tina started off sweet and innocent and turned into a shrew within 24 hours. Maybe that’s one of the problems that I had with the story. The timeline. There was no slow romance, no build-up to love. One minute she’s a shy girl, embarrassed to be around so many men, the next she’s being kissed for fixing a computer only to be in the arms of a different man a few hours later only to drop that man for Wyatt just 48 hours later and giving him her virginity.
As for Wyatt, I really couldn’t follow his story. He was brooding and plain ignorant when Tina showed up then, within a few days, he’s telling her his life story … a story that not even his friends or employers knew about him. One minute he’s saving a life and the next he’s accusing Tina of bringing trouble to the ranch. Then, he’s acting this way because he knew that she was the woman that would make him feel again. He just confused me. And, for a man that only had sex one other time, he was supposedly pretty good at it. But, then again, that could have been the reason why he did not know about his deflowering of Tina.
The one thing that kept me interested in the story was the mystery surrounding the Circle Bar K Ranch. Even though it was a bit cheesy, it was interesting and was nicely woven into the story.
Again, unfortunately, Must Love Cowboys just didn’t do it for me. I felt the sex scenes were strained, the verbalization and descriptions of the human anatomy were extreme and not very realistic. There were some scenes that seemed forced, not natural. I would hope, as the series progresses, Ms. Brooks delves a little deeper into her characters, makes them more three-dimensional, likeable; that she has the love build as the characters get to know each other.
