Part Time Cowboy by Maisey Yates
(Copper Ridge #1)
Published by: Harlequin
Publication date: March 31st 2015
Genres: Contemporary, Romance

A one-time bad girl comes home to small-town Oregon in the first in a sexy, heartfelt new series from USA TODAY bestselling author Maisey Yates…

Sadie Miller isn’t expecting any welcome-home parades on her return to Copper Ridge. Least of all from part-time rancher, full-time lawman Eli Garrett. The straight-laced, impossibly hot deputy sheriff glares at her like she’s the same teenage hoodlum who fled town ten years ago. But running from her demons has brought Sadie full circle, ready to make a commitment at last. Not to a man, but to a B and B. On Garrett land. Okay, so her plan has a tiny flaw…

Eli works too hard to let a blonde ball of trouble mess up his town. But keeping an eye on Sadie makes it tough to keep his hands off her. And if she’s so wrong for him, why does being with her feel so right?

My Review

4 Stars!

I really had a lot of fun reading this book.  I had hoped to find a nice little romance when I picked up this book and I ended up getting so much more.  This book was full of complex and compelling characters that I really liked a lot.  This book was actually good enough that I found myself reading part of it while waiting for a show to start at Disney World and while I realize that I may not win any mother of the year awards for that move, I just had to know what happened next in the little town of Copper Ridge.

I loved the characters in this story.  Sadie has a lot of spunk and she is tough.  She has been through a lot in her life and has learned to cope of moving and starting over anytime things get difficult.  When she decides she wants to quit running, she makes plans to move back to the last place that felt like home, Copper Ridge.  She signs a 5 year lease to run a Bread and Breakfast on the same land owned by the Garrett Family.  

Eli has also been through a lot during his life but has handled the stress in a very different manner than Sadie.  Eli likes order and he is the one his family counts on to take care of things.  He is also the same man that arrested Sadie the last time she was in town.  He is not happy about the idea of Sadie running a Bread and Breakfast on the same land he calls home.  

I loved the chemistry between Eli and Sadie.  It was simply incredible.  I liked the fact that both Eli and Sadie approached relationships in an unusual manner and both tried really hard to keep their feelings from getting involved.  The pair were honest with each other throughout the story and their banter has me laughing a few times.  I really liked the pair as a couple.

I would highly recommend this book to fans of contemporary romance.  This was actually the first book by Maisey Yates that I have had a chance to read but I definitely plan to read more in the future.  I can't wait to get my hands on the next book in the wonderful new series. 

I received a copy of this book from Harlequin via Net Galley for the purpose of providing an honest review.

She feels the epic trek she takes several times a day from her office to her coffee maker is a true example of her pioneer spirit.

In 2009, at the age of twenty-three Maisey sold her first book. Since then it’s been a whirlwind of sexy alpha males and happily ever afters, and she wouldn’t have it any other way.

She believes that she clearly has the best job in the world.
