New Release Book Review: Caught Up In A Cowboy by Jennie Marts

About the Book

This cowboy plays to win

Rockford James was raised as a tried and true cowboy in a town crazy about ice hockey. Rock is as hot on the ice as he is on a horse, and the NHL snapped him up. Now, injuries have permanently benched him. Body and pride wounded, he returns to his hometown ranch to find that a lot has changed. The one thing that hasn't? His feelings for high school sweetheart and girl-next-door Quinn Rivers.

Quinn had no choice but to get over Rock after he left. Teenaged and heartbroken, she had a rebound one night stand that ended in single motherhood. Now that Rock's back—and clamoring for a second chance—Quinn will do anything to avoid getting caught up in this oh-so-tempting cowboy...

My Thoughts

Caught Up in a Cowboy is a solid story featuring an injured hockey player returning home to recuperate and finally facing the woman he left behind 9 years ago.

Rockford James and Quinn Rivers still feel the pull of attraction and while time does heal some wounds, it can also significantly impact how a person lives their future life. Being neighbours places them in proximity to one another and gives them the opportunity to finally voice their thoughts and air grievances. Their predicament is whether there is a future for them given Rock is only home temporarily.

I enjoyed reading the book. It’s not a demanding read given the predictability of the story. For this reason, I did think it was longer than it needed to be.
I liked both the Rivers and James family members and I felt they added to this story without every overtaking the focus on Quinn and Rock.

Caught Up in a Cowboy is a commendable start to the Cowboys of Creedence series.
