My Review:
A cowboy romance set in the wilds of 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

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

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

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

Love, love, love!!!!!!! Loved it!

It was fun!

It was sexy!

It was playful!

But the ending... Disappointing.

Honestly, I thought it was going to end differently. It was fun, fun, fun... oh. That's it?

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.

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-

What happen in Vegas, was supposed to stay in Vegas.

Without saying a word to friends and family, Ace and Jasmine goes to Las Vegas to get married. Are they in love ? No, they're just friend, but when Jasmine learn that her pal have one week left to find a wife or he lose his ranch to a cousin (thanks to his grandpa's will), she propose to him. They only have to stay married one year and the plan is to divorce after that. But you can bet your ass that fate have a say in it. They're supposed to re

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

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

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

Due to a clause in his grandfather's will, Ace has one week to get married or he loses the ranch he inherited at his grandfather's death. 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. After all, what happens in Vegas stay ...more

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

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.

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. :)

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

Jasmine thought she was only doing her best friend a favour, to save his farm and all, but when their quickie wedding in Vegas goes national, theyll both have to think again..
Now both Jasmine and Aces families want more, and since they have to stay married for a year, theyll have to give it. Can a make-believe marriage become real?
Contemporary romance, feelings and smutty fluff in a great combo.
Listened to the audioversion and the narrator was great as well.

Nothing better in the world than a cowboy. Jazzy thought she was helping a friend keep his ranch but things get complicated real quick. I really do like Carolyn Brown's books!

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
