I've never read any of the books in this series until now and I can tell you that I fell in love with this book. Jasmine being the ultimate friend marries her best friend Ace, so he can keep his farm and land. The reason for this? Because the will stipulated he needed to marry in order to inherit.

So Ace and Jazzy fly to Sin City and get married. The catch? Well they end up being in the news and on papers, so now everyone knows and there plans have to change. Now Ace and Jazzy are trying to make...more

Funny characters and a hell of a lot of Texas twang could only take this book so far before it fizzled out.

Rating: 3.5

It's a romance cliche to end a novel with a wedding. Carolyn Brown dumps that cliche on its head and starts her book with Jasmine King and Ace Riley getting married in a Las Vegas chapel.

They're doing it because Ace has just found out about a stipulation in his grandfather's will that says he needs to be married for a year or his ranch will go to a hated cousin. Jasmine, Ace's be...more

One Hot Cowboy wedding is exactly what this book was! From the very, very and I do mean very hot Ace to the delicious Southern talk right down to the blazing passion between Ace and Jasmine, I adored every second of this book.

It has the makings for a really good romantic chick flick. We have the delicious cowboy, the woman who saves him, the family and secrets that threaten to tear them apart and that big old wonderful feeling called true love i...more

My Review:
A cowboy romance set in the wilds of Texas...one of my favorite things and this book did not disappoint. It was entertaining and fun and just the perfect read as a light, contemporary romance. It helped a lot that I know the part of Texas pretty well where the book was set. When we were dating, my husband (then boyfriend) lived in Altus, Okla and I lived in Lubbock, Tx. One of us drove through this section of Texas pretty much every weekend, so it was fun to go back and "visit" it thro...more

I laughed all the way through. Amusing cowboy hijinks and sympathetic characters. I loved the tropey beginning. The conflict was resolved early in the book, but the vivid setting and quirky supporting characters carried the book all the way to the end.

I really enjoy Carolyn Brown’s books and One Hot Cowboy Wedding is no exception. This is the fourth book in her Spikes and Spurs series and features playboy Ace Riley and business woman turned café owner Jasmine King. Jasmine and Ace become good friends over eighteen months mainly because Jasmine isn’t bowled over by Ace’s good looks and cowboy charm. One day Ace finds out that all he thought was his will be taken away if he doesn’t get married in a week. Jasmine being the good friend that she i...more

Welcome back to Ringgold, Texas! Where the men are true blue cowboys and the girls are smart and sassy and boy are there enough of them to go around. I’ve just finished reading One Hot Cowboy Wedding and I thoroughly enjoyed it. This is the latest release in Carolyn Brown’s Spikes and Spurs series and the story of Jasmine King and Ace Riley. Jasmine is the owner and cook of the Chicken Fry Diner and her best friend Ace Riley, a well-...more

After spilling his troubles to his best friend Jasmine, the owner of the Chicken Fried Cafe, he is shocked when she offers to marry him. The plan is to secretly wed in Las Vegas and return home to resume their normal lives. In one year, the term specified in the will, they will quietly divorce and no one will be the wiser.

Carolyn Brown has a wonderful way of telling stories and she proves it again in this wonderful book about two people who have been absolutely best friends for two years--who now face together the possible loss of Ace's ranch because of a heretofore unrealized caveat in the grandfather's will--so what else can a best friend do but up and marry him and make sure that he gets what is rightfully his. The marriage has to look good, has to come across as genuine, has to convince the distant cousin who...more

Very good book. I love this series with its hot cowboys and spunky women. Ace found out that, due to an unknown clause in his grandfather's will, he has to be married within two weeks or lose his ranch to an unpleasant cousin. He's had no intention of settling down and hasn't been dating anyone he'd be willing to marry. Then his best friend Jasmine offers to marry him. They plan to marry quietly, and continue their lives as before. Then their wedding ends up on the news and everyone in town know...more

Need to settle down? Why not marry your best friend?

I know when I pick up a book by Carolyn Brown I'm in for a treat. I consider her books like little socials with old friends. She brings back characters from the previous books all while introducing new ones. Now don't let that be a deterrent. It's truly a huge family reunion with spicy romance to boot. The words flow and I couldn't put the book down once I started it. I had to know w...more

I've been waiting for Ace and Jasmine's book since we met Jasmine in Red's Hot Cowboy (Pearl & Wil's story). I really enjoyed this book of friends to lovers. Downloaded the ebook at midnight on 4/1 and could not put it down! Read it in about 6 hours.

I also really enjoyed the secondary love story going on with Lucy and Tyson. I'm interested to see if there will be more story for them in the next book.

With all of the secondary characters, it helped to have read the other 3 books in this seri...more

I'm struggling with how to rate this one, because some things in this one irked me. In contemporary romances I expect some type of conversation about contraception. No mention of it at any time, except an "oops, we forgot the first and second time we had sex, but no biggie!" (Quote is mine). Secondly, what's the freakin rush to have babies? (And we are not talking about 1 or 2, we're talking "house-full.") These relationships happen quickly in this series (insta-love!) and I would think you'd wa...more

Ace needs a wife and finds one in best friend, Jazzy. So now what are they going to do? Jazzy's mom wants a big fancy wedding. Jazzy just can't tell her no...but maybe it's time for Jazzy and Ace to both grow and decide what is important in life.

I enjoyed watching this couple fall in love, even when neither thought it was a good idea. I enjoyed their sexual play and being an ice cream lover, oh yeah! great scene. :)

This is obviously part of an ongoing series as the character list is quite heav...more

Ace doesn’t read his grandfather’s will and gets a surprise. Jazzy, his best friend, agrees to marry him for a year so he can keep his ranch. This story is full of hijinks as Jazzy and Ace realize that the love each other. I read another book in this series and was dying to know about Red’s friends. Picking up One Hot Cowboy Wedding, didn’t disappoint. I love the families and their antics. Many of the characters from Red’s book show u...more

ONE HOT COWBOY WEDDING is a passionate story of expectations and what happens when the only terrible secrets are the ones we keep from ourselves. This was a delightful read.

There is nothing like a Brown book to make me think I was born in the wrong country. I want a cowboy in jeans and a hat, and throw in a relative or something too with lots of good sayings. Now that would make the gravy on the chicken..wait, oh I suck at these, lol.

I knew Ace from before (he loves his women), and Jasmine who owns the café. They are friends and that is it. But Ace needs a wife and Jasmine is a good friend. But of course we all know what will happen. Feelings, passion and happily e...more

One Hot Cowboy Wedding: Ace Riley and Jasmine King

Review:

This book can be summed up nicely in that this is a great, fun and light read. This is a feel good novel with sexy cowboys and sassy southern women. Ace is the quintessential feel good cowboy who has dated half the female population of Texas, but has done it in such a way that only a charmer such as Ace can pull off. You can’t not like Ace, he puts all out there along with his barbed wire tattoo to remind h...more

There are two things about this book that I love. It's Carolyn Brown and there are cowboys. Specifically, Ace Riley. I can't put my finger on exactly what I love about this series, but the Spikes and Spurs series is one of my favorite cowboy series out right now. This book was a surprise to me. I didn't expect to like Jasmine and Ace as much as I did. To add to that, I'm not a big fan of the Vegas wedding trope. In my opinion it's an easy way out. But Carolyn Brown added enough twists and turns...more

I want an Ace Riley. Lol. What a great guy.

This was a wonderful read. Loved the characters, the setting, the dialogue... I laughed out loud and even shared some of the sayings/dialogue with my hubby. Lol. This is the first book by Ms. Brown that I've read. Definitely will be adding her to my favorite author list and grab the rest of this series and her backlist. A sweet, fun read.

Ok, so I will say it hadb't started out that bad. I liked the hero and the heroine and where the storyline was going, but honestly the POV kept jumping back and forth between the two, there were times I was VERY confused about who was speaking.

The dialogue started to crumble for me about Chapter two or three. Especially when she meets his family and his brothers are explaining to her why he has blond hair and they have dark hair....WHAT?? WHO CARES?? or just have her notice the difference. I re...more

When Ace’s grandfather passed away, he put in a small (but rather large) request in his will – that Ace get married and stay married for a year or the rand Double Deuce goes to his obnoxious cousin Cole who would rather sell it to the highest bidder then let Ace have it.

Ace confides in his best friend Jasmine all his woes over a hamburger as her diner “Chicken Fried” – she comes up with a solution to all his problems – that they get married! They could keep it a secret; only the lawyer and Cole...more

Review from Backchatting Books

Marriage of convenience plus cowboys – what more could you want? Actually I wanted a bit more in terms of plot and characterisation. Ace Riley inherited his farm from his grandfather on the condition that he gets married and stay married for one year. If he fails to do this, the ranch goes to his cousin. Ace is in quite a tizz as he doesn’t want to lose the ranch but he doesn’t want to be shackled to anyone. Good friend Jasmine proposes a solution by literally propo...more

I read this book because it was easily available at the library. I love romance novels, but I'm not especially interested in the cowboy theme. In short, I wasn't expecting much and even considered the possibility that I would not finish the book. I got a great surprise! This book is full of characters I would like to know, families that I wouldn't mind being part of (yet realistic, because there are disagreements), and fun little vignettes about small-town life. The two main characters are genui...more

My first Carolyn Brown book - loved her! Must look for more of her work. This is Ace Riley and Jasmine King's story. He inherited a ranch from his grandfather and when he signed the forms with the attorney he didn't pay attention to the condition that he had two years to marry or the property would go to a useless cousin that wants to sell it and take the money and run. He has one week to find a bride. Ace and Jasmine are best friends and to help her friend out Jasmine marries him with the under...more

Hi! I'm twenty five years old and movie star gorgeous. The camera added thirty plus years and a few wrinkles. Can't trust those cameras or mirrors either.
