The first story, TO LOVE A COWBOY, is about a cowboy in love with his boss/business partner's much younger son. The story starts when Roan just gets home from years away at college and a ranch job, and Patrick must face his feelings for the young man. The relationship is great, the sex is incredibly spicy, and the characters are fantastic. The story is only 120 pages though, and though it's a good story it isn't the best cowboy romance I've ever read (that award goes to THE TIN STAR by J. L. Lan...more
It seems I liked things the other readers didn't like.
I LOVED the huge age difference! I'm a sucker for this type of relationship and the fact that they've had pseudo father-son relationship (kind of) makes their romance more forbidden and I liked it! I also loved the pov changes. TBH I'm tired of always predictable 'one chapter - one pov' scheme. Here it was asymmetric, like we're having Roan's pov for some time and then suddenly - a glimpse of Patrick's pov! I think it was original and suited...more
While I enjoyed the story of Patrick and Roan because it had sexy cowboys in it, there was just some parts that took away from the enjoyment of the book for me.
To Love a Cowboy is a sweet story, heavy on the UST, about a Rancher, Patrick, who has been in love with his Best friend and co-worker's son for a long time. After being gone for 7 years the younger man, Roan, returns, making it his life’s mission to seduce the older man he's desired since a young age.

The constant pull and push and the chemistry between these men is what carries the story. Mostly it's about sex. Mostly it's about wanting sex. And the story plays out the way you thought it proba...more

Even if the title is the same of the first story, the book is really two complete stories of about the same lenght.

In the first, To Love a Cowboy, Patrick is a 45 years old foreman of a wealthy horse ranch. He is also the owner of the 45% of that ranch, being an old friend of the boss, and he is also in love with the 25 years old son of his friend, Roan. Roan has a crush on Patrick since he was 14, and he has also managed to sneak an handjob with said foreman when he was 18. But soon after Patri...more

This review is just for the title story, To Love a Cowboy. I did not read the second story, Justice. Sorry...

This was a story with lots of potential. Roan Bucklin grew up on his father's ranch, and has been in love with the ranch foreman, Patrick Lassiter, since he was 14. After leaving home at 18 to go to college and work at other ranches, Roan has now, at age 25, returned to his home to win the man he loves.
Patrick Lassiter is 45, and although he has a pretty good arrangement (i.e. friendship...more
Well, not really good for me.. It was a way to pass time, but both stories didn;t have much depth. Was a little disappointed since I have enjoyed her writings so much when she's paired with other authors... This duo just didn't have much 'meat' to it.. oh well.

The first one, well the age difference would have worked perfectly fine for me, but it seemed kind of weird that the son was still living with his dad, and the guy he was in love with was his dad's best friend.. and his dad was so non-chal...more
I have yet to read Justice and I'm not sure I will anytime soon since it is shaping up as something that is very much not my cup of tea.

As for the To love a cowboy story, I liked it a lot.

It started as sort of a pissing match between Roan and Patrick but as we got to know the characters better their actions made more sense. There was alot of tension and a lot of feelings and it was nice to see them both so honest with their feelings, even if at the beginning it was only with themselves. I also...more
The first story was okay. Not great by any means, but okay. I like the older man thing but this one was a little creepy. Patrick knowing Roan from the time he was 10 kind of gave it the creep factor, though nothing happened between them until Roan was 18.

The second story (Justice) was almost funny and I'm not sure it was meant to be. Once I got beyond the strange .......... very accepting....... town folks, it was okay. From what I understood, the author didn't exactly write it as any type of se...more
Loved this story! It was perfect & has given me seveal day-dreams to enjoy. If you're gonna read a cowboy story, this is the one. It has a May/December theme & it a HEA.
I like the bratty son that comes back to the ranch & the single-mindedness towards the object of his desire.
I like the foreman & his steady way, but he's too stubborn sometimes & it stops him from being happy...but that's what makes a good story.

I loved this short story..Patrick and Roan were so good together...and having a father so lovingly able to talk to his son about everything was such a nice touch x I actually liked the second story Justice...I've read Cattle Valley which is a town made specially for gay people and this has made me want to go back and re-read them x

I liked the setting, enjoyed the characters but felt a little cheated. It's like the author had a great plot, great story that could have easily been a 5 stars but lost it in the second story. I did love the sexy hot cowboy love :)
I only read the first story and loved it. The age difference didn't bother me at all but the use of "older man", "blonde man" and things of that nature were a bit annoying. The smexing was very nice and overall a nice little read.
I enjoyed the first story more than the second. They were both pretty entertaining - I typically love anything with cowboys. It's an easy & quick read.
Sweet romance, one not wanting to admit he's in love, the other knows it but can't seem to convince him, but it all ends happily ever after.
lots of love, this book was great!!
The first story was much better than the second, but if you remove the sex from this book there wouldn't be much left.

"To Love a Cowboy" - 4.5 stars ;

This book includes also the Bonus Novella "Justice" - to be read soon
3.5 stars but I rounded up...Hot and sexy cowboys find love...what's not to like?
Nice older/younger cowboy romance. I didn't read the second story in the book.
This book is in my top 3. It I'd a true love story with ups and downs.
i would not be okay with letting my 20 year old kid date my 40+ best friend o.0
I really liked the first story
