I'll be the first to admit an unhealthy obsession with cowboys, but Wesley may just be the most perfect cowboy ever. This is the first book I have read by Ashley Johnson, her smooth style makes for an enjoyable read. Once I started the book, I had a hard time putting it down. Hope and Wesley's story is engaging and complicated. I enjoyed every minute of it.

Hope has been deeply wounded by the death of her sister, Karlee, in an accident that she survived. She struggles with survivor's guilt and th

Let me start off by saying that I really have no interest in cowboys but this cowboy really took my interest. This book was a fantastic read. It really stole my heart from the beginning.
First you meet Hope Trahan and at the time she is engaged to Brad, who is a complete douche bag. She tells of her loss of her sister and the toll it has taken on her life. You also meet her best friend Amber who I loved. Amber and Hope have the perfect relationship as friends. Amber is out going and says what is

My thoughts: “Spurs & Stilettos” was a fast and cute read that had its ups and downs for me.


I loved how even after the death of her sister and finding out that her fiancée is a cheating scum, Hope is still able to move on and cover ground she had sworn to never touch again: the rodeo.


While being dragged by her bestie, Amber, to a rodeo circuit, she meets Wesley and sparks fly immediately. Heh?

Hope and Wesley go through a lot of trysts stemming from insecurities (well, from Hope) and miscom

Hope appears to have it all in life. She's getting married to a wonderful man and has the job of her dreams. But don't let appearances full you. She may be engaged to marry Brad, but Brad is far from the perfect man. He gives hope a hard time and talks down to her every chance he gets. You see, two years ago, Hope's sister died in a car accident when she fell asleep behind the wheel of her car while they were driving home from the rodeo. Hope still has her best friend Amber by her side and her v ...more

I have to honestly say this is one of my favorite novels especially when it comes to cowboys. The author had me immediately from the amazing cover, which shows the passion of what is to come in this treasure box that is waiting for its readers to the very last page. Hope has been dealt a very bad hand in life especially when two years ago, when her best friend and sister dies in a car accident while Hope lives. While she believes her life is starting to get back on track she find out that not ev ...more

It is difficult to go through life with one hurdle after another. For Hope the first hurdle, the death of her sister, knocks her down. Still not healed 2 years later, she gets another blow from her fiance the night before being dragged to the rodeo by her best friend.

At the rodeo, she meets champion rider Wesley who is smitten with her from the moment they meet. He pursues her hard despite being busy with his ride that night. Wesley i

Hope has not been able to return to the rodeo since her sister’s death 2 years ago. Never actually getting over the tragic accident that took her sister way to early, she just can’t handle the pain the memories bring to her. That is until her life was turned upside down when she walked in to her house one evening with her best friend. Even though Hope had already been dealt a crappy hand she is determined to not let the bad stop her. She does return to the rodeo only to meet Wesley. Holy Hot Cow ...more

Sassy city girl meets laid back country boy...yes please! It's like two worlds collided here and Wesley and Hope have to learn how to accept each other's lives. Hope still has a lot of emotional baggage that tends to haunt her from the past. Wesley has a job that is dangerous every day.
I love that fate played a part in this story, more than once really. Sometimes people are put in our lives for a reason, and its just meant to be no matter what. Wesley and Hope have a draw to each other and when

I really enjoyed this book. Unlike some authors who use a lot of direct characterization to describe a character's feelings, Ms. Johnson was able to make me feel Hope's emotions- sometimes to the point where I had to stop reading because I felt as uncomfortable as Hope did.
Great story, strong (and real) characters. Would highly recommend!!

I give Spurs & Stilettos 3.5 stars.

Spurs & Stilettos is a contemporary romance. Hope was in a horrible accident that resulted in the loss of her sister and 2 years later; she is still trying to move on. She is afraid of losing anyone else in her life and moving forward that she stays in a relationship longer than she should have. She catches her fiancé in a betraying act and heads out to the rodeo with her best friend Amber. At the rodeo she meets Wesley, who is a 2 time champion and he

Love, Love love myself a good old cowboy, and you cant get much more cowboy than a rodeo man!!! Especially a hot,sweet talking one like Wesley! I don't know what it is about cowboys that make me want to swoon a little bit, maybe it is because I'm a city girl, and there are NO cowboys anywhere near where I live. Or maybe it is the thought of being thrown over a shoulder and dragged into a barn for some fun in the hay stacks, who knows. What ever it is, I am always happy to read a story with a cow ...more
Jackie's Book Review

I found that this book reminded me a little of a fairy tale or should I say the story where the girl meets her Knight in Shinning Armour or Prince Charming only to almost mess it up!

The story centers around Hope Trahan who is engaged to Brad who is a complete loser. Brad is one of the kind of guys that does nothing for Hope's self esteem especially after Hope loses her older sister in a car accident two years earlier. Hope is trying to cope without having her sister in her life and Brad only add

I will start by saying this is not my usual type of reading, but I thoroughly thoroughly enjoyed-loved- this book!! I am glad I did get a chance to read it.
Hope starts out in a bad relationship, one I can totally relate to, but she finds a way out. Brad is a total self-centered ass. The only problem with him, was even after he screwed up and they were apart he just wouldn't go away. He was always trying to cause a scene or trouble, I was so happy when he finally disappeared.

Hope appeared to have it all. The love of a fiancée and best friend who adored her...looks can be deceiving. Brad was anything but what he appeared. He wasn't supportive or compassionate. He was demanding and selfish and oh yeah did I mention he was a lying cheating sick son of a .... Anyway you get the point. Hope came home to find the pig in bed with another woman and I was so hoping she would kick him in the nuts or something to make him suffer but well it didn't happen.

What is it about cowboys? Is it because they are so down to earth? Muscular? Or is it the danger of riding a horse that makes them so appealing? I say it is all of the above. Our girl Hope did not stand a chance once Wesley looked at her with his green eyes and gave her his sexy smile.

These two are on fire. Once again, Fate/Destiny plays a hand with these two. They are drawn together relentlessly. Hope is worried all is moving too fast. She has just broken up from her first love because he was c

This book was a fun read. I love the dynamic between Hope and Amber. But most of all I love Wesley. The ultimate Cowboy with southern manners and all her is a bronco bucking dream. I wanted to kill her ex right alongside with her. I did find some parts of the book that jumped around a little but not enough to deter my enjoyment.

I love the fact that Wesley fights for her no matter what determined to show her what a real man can do for her heart,body and soul. Making her realize that what she had
