Let me begin by saying this is about as clean as you can get in a contemporary romance, and I appreciate that more than anything else. No sex scenes--although it was alluded to, but no acts happened within the confines of the book. Profanity was nonexistent. Add in cowboys and a hot romance, and you have the perfect light romance.

I so appreciated the humor in this book! So often I read books and barely crack a smile. Either humor is nonexistent or too corny for words. Roxy Boroughs has a great s

Really enjoyed this book! The story was life like and fun to follow! Would recommend this book to read especially for those that LOVE sexy cowboys.

Emily is an Equine Vet and has sworn off cowboys. They always seem to come into her life, break her heart and leave as quickly as they came in to her life. The day she decides to swear off cowboys is the day she meets Brandon! However, Brandon isn't the guy that he leads Emily to believe that he is.

Brandon has a good life going for

Perhaps I should read descriptions before I actually purchase books because I was surprised to find this one so incredibly short (only about 50K words). But it was a nice, quick and very fun read, absolutely worth every minute I spent on it.

Crazy for Cowboy was written almost like a screenplay (possibly a coincidence since the hero is an actor?) in that it’s vivid, descriptive and has every element of a perfect date-night, chick-flick. It’s a throwback to movies like The Wedding Planner (J Lo, M

This is between 3-4 stars. A PG romance worth a cute story. A good beach read. Emily is a veterinarian who had given up dating for awhile because she keeps falling for men who are unreliable. As a big animal vet, these men she falls for tend to be cowboys.

Brandon, a struggling actor playing the part of a cowboy meets and falls for Emily as he is taking riding lessons. Since she thinks he's a cowboy he keeps up the facade, digging himself into a deeper hole as their relationship grows. One thing

This is one of those feel good books.

This book was funny, great and very easy to relate to. I loved that it is set in Calgary, a city I have been to, and I know the surrounding farm areas as well. The main character is a veterinarian, a strong woman, with a broken heart. Not wanting an other cowboy to break her heart, she closes herself of from men. But this one just keeps coming, and he is so different from all the cowboys she has dated.

This makes it such an entertaining light read. Which I en

Crazy for Cowboy had me up turning pages and doing my best to stifle giggles in the wee hours. Brandon Hollister is a yummy hero who tells, what he believes, is a harmless white lie and gets him into trouble on multiple levels including by misleading the heroine, Emily, about his real identity. She thinks he's a real cowboy - something she's sworn an oath to avoid at all costs - until she meets Brandon.

Watching the antics and sparks fly between these two multi-faceted characters was a complete r

What a refreshing short story. It was just sweet, funny, & a wholesome love story. You have Emily who is a lady veterinarian & Brandon who is an actor posing as a cowboy. At first he does it as a gag just to meet her & also gives her the false name of Houston. The next day he runs into her again purely by accident & allows the lie to spin out of control as well as their attraction for one another. Can he fix it & tell the truth when he hears from others that she real loves co ...more

At first I was like, ooooo-kay... then I was like, hmmmm... then awww... wait, what? Noooo! And then finally...wait for it... Yippee-yi-yo-ki-YAY!
Okay... I've had my fun. At first I was a little less interested in the story because of the "pretender" and some of the reactions of Emily had me wondering about her. More often than not I was laughing at her thoughts, actions and reactions. But then it got sweet, then sad, and then it made me laugh out loud (really) at the end. So read this book bec

This cowboy must have used liquor in his lip balm, because she was definitely getting tipsy.

“Take off your shirt.”
Brandon’s brows shot up. “The sight of blood gets you going, huh?”
“Get your mind out of your shorts, big boy. I need something to hold against the wound so I can apply pressure.”
“Why can’t we use your shirt?”
“Excuse me?”
“I was planning on talking you out of it later, but since the opportunity has arisen...”

I rarely review books I've read and that's something I need to address and yes, when I do I copy and paste between here and Amazon UK so if you've already read it there I'm sorry!

I see many links on Facebook for freebies and I do download and read a lot of them - this was one. From the very beginning I spent most of it laughing out loud. It's not an erotic novel, it's a romcom and a bloody good one too. Crazy for Cowboy is the first book I've read by this author and I will be checking out her ot

3.5 Stars

Cute, easy read. The characters are sweet, and aside from a few minor communication and identity issues that they manage to work through, end up falling in love.

After her last boyfriend takes off on her, Emily decides to swear off dating cowboys. Five minutes later in walks in Brandon, who is rehearsing a part he has just landed in a cowboy movie, and Emily realizes just how hard it is going to be to keep that promise. Especially when he is dead set on getting the girl.

Despite not liking the fact that Brandon is pretty much lying to the heroine for a good portion of the book (pet peeve button...), I really enjoyed Crazy for Cowboy. It's a fun romp through the Calgary Stampede scene from the Stampede itself to popular watering holes.

It's a sensual book with Roxy juggling the fact that Brandon's not on the up and up really well in their relationship (spoiler: no sex as that would make him sleazy.) So really, I'd let my mom read this and that's saying something!

First off I loved several aspects of the book (the clean language and romance as well as the humor [Sam was an amazing secondary character along with Jackie]); the characters were very well developed and their personalities showed through. I just wish it would have been deeper by "showing" a little more and "telling" a little less. Other than that, I consider it a great book.

while cute and coy, this story was not at first what I thought that it was going to be. I thought that at first it would be predictable, and to a point it was, but there were parts that I was not expecting.
A nice fluffy feel good read, sure to leave any reader with a smile; even if just for the characters antics. I will say that I loved the ending though with Houston Savage!

Cute and fast read centered around a female vet who has given up on cowboys until a case of mistaken identity proves impossible to pass up. Characters are both fun and adorable. Nothing earth-shattering but a fun couple hours of reading and it was a freebie.

A cute romantic comedy novella between an actor who put his career on hold to take car of his sister & nephew & a dedicated equine veterinarian who always find herself attracted to cowboys. A fun & quick wholesome read.

Cute, sweet story. Very enjoyable for a quick, light read. I absolutely adored Brandon, however crazy his antics. I would've enjoyed a little more detailed "happily ever after" though.
