More like a 3.5 star rating. Oh Goodreads how I wish you had half star ratings.

Take Me Home, Cowboy is the first book I’ve read by Krista Ames. For a short story, I was really impressed.

Ally Kincaid has been away from home for too long. She misses her dad and the family ranch. The more she thinks about it the more she likes the idea of getting away from her city job and overly solicitous boss for just a bit. Excited to be home, she expects to find everything as it always was. Instead, she find

Take Me Home, Cowboy is the first book I have had the pleasure of reading by Krista Ames and let me tell you it sure won't be my last. I absolutely loved this book. It had my attention captured on the first page. Krista Ames did a fabulous job of putting together a great contemporary western romance. I know I'll be on the look out for more books by her.

REVIEW: I have always kept my liking for cowboy a secret but I will no more. This western romance erotica just amplified my liking for men in boots, wrangler jeans and cowboy hats. Take Me Home, Cowboy is a very romantic and erotic read that will leave you gasping for more.

Ally Kincaid is a southern belle with a hint of city girl after having moved to NYC for work. There, she has established a life and a really good job. After a number of bad relationships A

This is the first book I've read by Krista Ames and I really enjoyed it. It's set mostly on a ranch in Freewill, Wyoming. And it sounds like it would be a lovely place to visit. Keep an eye out for the office in the barn! Oh My! *grins* I would prefer it to have more sex for carrying the erotic label, but it is still a SPICY read. The pages are numbered on my review as 70 so it is a short read but I highly recommend it! It's well written and I was wrapped up in it from start to finish. Absolutel ...more

Take Me Home, Cowboy shows us that opposites do in fact attract as city girl Ally butts heads with rancher Matt from the moment they meet. Ally's used to being the apple of her father's eye but Matt now holds a special spot in her father's heart as he admires his work ethic and ability to rebuild his life after a tragedy.

Ally's initial reaction to Matt is one of suspicion that grows as she overhears many conflicting comments from him that bring out the worst in her. She appears a bit elitist at

Like diving headfirst into a bowl of whipped cream, this is a deliciously light and frothy read. It’s ideal when you want a quick and undemanding story, a sweet dessert after something heavy.

The premise is simple: Ally Kincaid hasn’t been home to her father’s ranch for two years. Busy with her life in New York, her father worries that he hasn’t seen her and tells her to come and visit.

At only 76 pages this was a novella that had a lot packed into it. Ally and Matt had immediate chemistry both on the phone and once they met. Matt had reservations since she was the boss’ daughter. She had reservations since he was the foreman of Daddy’s ranch. But eventually neither one let that get in the way. It was interesting to start and end the story in New York with Wyoming sandwiched in between. Ally’

I’ll be honest, I am a big fan of contemporary western romances…and books like Take Me Home, Cowboy are the reason. This is my first book by author Krista Ames and I was very impressed that she put such a delightful twist on old favorite ~ big city girl returns to her roots where she discovers love.

This is a very sweet and touching romance between two people that soon discover an attraction through sexual tension. The author was even able to turn something that normally completely repulses me --

Take Me Home, Cowboy by Krista Ames

Ally returns home for the first time in two years since her mothers death. Her father had left a message for her to come visit. On returning she finds the new foreman is Matt Gentry. With is cocky attitude and southern draw Ally is drawn to him against her better judgement. One sizzling kiss she throws caution to the wind. Hot steamy sex yet her mind wonders what it is that he is hiding. Tragedy strikes the ranch, what secrets will come out?

I LOVED it, Krista did an amazing job with this short story.

Ally lives in New York and after a call from her father, and fighting off the affection of her boss, decides to go back for a visit.

Matt lives on the ranch,as foremen, has for 2 years and in that time has never seen Ally, but he hears her voice on the phone.

They rub each other the wrong way from the start, but when they meet the sparks fly!

The characters were well-developed and simply leaped off the pages, the plot was complex and well-thought out for such a short story, the dialogue was believable and the sex scenes were smoldering enough to keep you begging for more. If you love western stories like myself and haven’t picked up a copy of Krista Ames’ Take Me Home Cowboy, then you’re definitely missing out because this is a great Saturday afternoon read that will quickly warm your heart and put a smile on your face.

Oh my, Ms. Ames. Take Me Home, Cowboy was a huge helping of home-spun enjoyment. I was in love with the story from beginning to end. Ally (a senior editor working in the big city) comes home to her family's ranch and falls for the foreman - hunky Matt. Ahhhh... oh yes, back to the review... sexual tension abounds and Ms. Ames knows how to please. She even makes washing dishes seem sexy. **Reviewer can't help smiling to herself**

Anyway, this little story is filled with heat, romance, and true emo

Take Me Home, Cowboy is a very quick read. I'm always a sucker for a good cowboy love story. Ally and Matt have an instant attraction. Their one love scene was very hot! My only regret was that the story was way too short. I thought that it should have been longer with more of Ally and Matt together. The HEA came too fast for me. But that is why I have a love/hate relationship with novellas. I always want more! It's a sweet story that will make you want to find your own sexy cowboy!

Krista pens "Take Me Home Cowboy", a contemporary western romance filled with sexual tension that totally held my interest. A nice fast read with well developed characters and some steamy love scenes. A must read for all western romance fans.

This review is based on a complimentary copy from the author which was provided for an honest review.

A short story about lust at first sight; a cowboy erotica.

Overall; not a bad short story. I am not a fan of lust at first sight. I like to see a more substantial attraction. I also thought his 'secret' was a little on the lame side. The connection wasn't strong enough for him to feel that degree of guilt.

I really loved this story. It was a super quick read and it only took me a few hours to finish it. I loved the characters and where it took place. The author did a great job at making me believe I was there and going through what they were going through. I am glad that it all worked out in the end. I am for sure going to be checking more books for this author out.
