Amanda’s Review – Cowboy, It’s Cold Outside (Twilight, Texas #8) by Lori Wilde

I thoroughly enjoyed this story and love this quaint town of Twilight and all its endearing characters. ~ Amanda, Guilty Pleasures 

Everyone in town knows that Christmas in Twilight has a way of bringing lovers together . . . but will its magic bring this pair from “I won’t” to “I do”?

Wearing a too-tight “Santa Baby” costume held in by a double pair of Spanx, Paige MacGregor runs headlong into a gorgeous, grey-eyed hunk of a long, tall cowboy. And not just any cowboy, but country-western star Cash Colton, visiting Twilight to perform in a charity concert. Most women would melt at his feet, but Paige knows all too much about self-assured men with cocky attitudes, so she tells him to get lost.

Cash is in town, nursing his own broken heart, but Paige has knocked him off his feet. He’s convinced she’s perfect—someone to inspire his music and share his now-empty bed. True, he’s not marriage material, but he’s determined to convince her that they’re perfect together—at least for a while. But what he doesn’t count on is falling in love with the one woman who isn’t about to give him the time of day!

Lori Wilde returns to Twilight, Texas in another Christmas romance for two very deserving individuals ready for love. Cash Colton has come to town to perform a charity concert after being away from music. He’s hoping that this will be a start of something to get his career back in gear after a year of lying low and hoping to get his creative juices flowing again. When he sees a cute Santa Helper his creativity goes into overdrive and he believes he’s found his inspiration! Unfortunately for him, Paige MacGregor is not on the market and isn’t going down that road again with a handsome sweet talker. Can he convince her to take a chance on him?

Paige is in Twilight needing a fresh start after her whole life was upended by a con artist. She’s starting from scratch living on her uncle’s houseboat and working 3 jobs in order to make ends meet. What she finds out her new neighbor is Cash himself she tries unsuccessfully to stay away from him but he’s just too darn irresistible for her. She’s in need of some excitement and gives into his advances and I can see them balancing each other out. She’s stability and has roots and enjoys the simple things whereas he’s larger than life and has a country star music career. They may not look like they would go together at first but there is definitely more underneath their facades. They both have been hurt by their pasts and it took a little bit of trust to let the other person in and reveal their stories to one another. Both Cash and Paige had to do some real soul searching in order to figure out what they want and make a real commitment to going after it, especially when it comes to a loving relationship.

I thoroughly enjoyed this story and love this quaint town of Twilight and all its endearing characters. Not only that but the author brings back family and friends from previous stories and we get to catch up. This is a close-knit community and Twilight has its traditions that are a little strange but you love their good intentions. My only detraction of this story was the overabundance of flowery words and descriptions of love and his musical inspirations. I was a little distracting and could be pared down a bit. Overall a very good story for two characters that get a real chance at finding love for the first time and a great start on a joint redo in life.
