makes them fall.

This should have been a cute little romp, and it was for the most part. A veritable salad of tropes: long-term (10 years) unrequited on both sides tossed with the forbidden fruit of BF's little sister a little makeover madness and disapproving parents.

It was ruined for me by the OTT judgmental actions of the H when he finds the h sashaying her rear at a honky tonk. Further spoiled by the jackass actions of her parents when they shunned the H, a man they took in as a surrogate son, because he did

Really couldn't get on board with this one - they both behaved like brats and she was even more so with her condoning of the way he was treated so she could get revenge.

I cannot say how much I loved this book! First off hello Ryan! Who wouldn't want to read a book with a modern day rodeo riding cowboy. I know just the cover alone prompted me to want to read this book...then I read the synopsis. If I was Twyla I would be frustrated to. Not only does the cowboy that she loves not want anything to do with her for fear of upsetting his pseudo family but she can feel it that he wants her back.
The way Becky McGraw draws us unto Twyla's character you just can't help b

Ryan Easter can be an absolute ass. However, I fell in love w/him from the first sentences I ever read. Twyla doesn't let him off easy & that makes this story one helluva a ride. It is in my top 20 of books. U will laugh, cry, or get mad. That is the best part of reading. All the emotions are suppose to be there. Read between the lines of the book because in the end u will love it. :DI have cried my eyeballs out reading the last chapter. I don't wanna see it end. I am so attached to these ch ...more

'Cowgirl Crazy', Cowboy Way book 2 by Becky McGraw is a fantastic read! This is the story of Twyla Taylor and Ryan Easter who both made appearances in 'Hope For Christmas' the novella that kicked off this series as well as in 'Just Shoot Me' book 1 of The Cowboy Way Series. This story grabs you from the very beginning and you won't want to put it down! I absolutely loved Twyla and Ryan. There are several moments in this story that will have you cracking up!

I really try to find some positive in all of the books I read, but this was was ROUGH. This book needed an editor - or a better one - BIG TIME!!! There were spelling errors, improper sentences, dangling thoughts ugh... Sometimes I had to reread a section to try to understand what was being said.

If that wasn't bad enough, the content of the story was ALL over the place. This girl was beyond too stupid to live. I didn't think it was cute or warm or anything this story was supposed to be. (view spo

I'll wait a moment for those of you who don't like harsh language. Go ahead. Shut the page.

What the fuck is this author thinking? Twyla should have had Ryan arrested for stalking. Fuck. That. He's a controlling ass who acts like an entitled baby. Why does she love him? Who knows? And who cares.

Let's be honest: Twyla thinks working at a bar shaking her ass makes her "trash". It doesn't. She's working her own way up to get herself a future that she likes instead of coasting through life. And whe

Another great read from Becky. Wow this story was up and down for just like Ryan and Twyla's tempers lol the way Twyla upped and leafs Ryan and her brother Zack was the right thing to do for her and Heather’s influence helped her find herself, I didn’t like Randy and thank god for the way things turned out because that man is a stuffed shirt.

The most enjoyable part of this series are the real-life situations that happen to the people. That makes the characters relatable to the readers. I enjoy reading this series and highly recommend it.

Good read

Very good story line. Funny, sad, dramatic, lots of hot sex. Our heroine wants to be independent and forget the man she's loved for 10 years. He loves her, but owes his allegiance to her family who thinks no one is good enough. Highly recommend.

Now this my friends is how you write a story, with just enough sass, strong women with a mind of her own, alpha males, murder, love, romance and the list goes on. This is one book that will steal your heart, make you sad and keep you laughing. I don’t even know where to begin there is just so much happening between these pages. You will not be sorry you bought this book and you will want the next book ASAP.

First let me say that I absolutely love Becky’s form of writing. She is able to make everyday life disappear once you start reading her books. This one was just that way. Ohhhhh I did not like Ryan at first. He was just a plain ole ass. But once we got to know more about him and his life, a soft spot grew for him. By the end of the story, he had a place in my heart. As to Twyla, she was nothing but spunky and held her own throughout the story. She was my hero for standing up for what sh

Ryan Easter had a rough childhood until the Taylor family took him in as a teenager. They became the family he never had as their son became his best friend and their younger daughter was also one of his closest friend. For years he had realized he feels more than friends for her but resists her knowing that his best friend Zach would kill him if he crossed that path if her dad did not. So instead he has been having one night stands trying to ease his frustrations

Grammar/editing: A – near perfect

This is the second book in the Cowboy Way series. They each stand alone, but are, in my opinion, much more enjoyable when read in order.

I have not read a 'Cowboy/Cowgirl" themed book since I was a kid who only read Horse stories, I loved these and always dreamed of riding the ranges (Still on the bucket list to do - Ride the Grand Canyon, Muster Cattle over the range)

So when I had the chance to read this book for the Blog Tour, and it was able to be read as a Standalone book I jumped at the chance.

The story is about Twyla Taylor, she travels the Rodeo circuit with her Brother Zach and his Best friend and adopted brother Ryan.

Don't Start to Read This Unless You Have Time to Read it All

Once again Becky McGraw has written a book I could not put down until I finished.
Twyla and Ryan are perfect for each other, Twyla has loved him ten years the only problem is he treats her like a little sister or makes her mad. Ryan has feelings for Twyla but first she's his best friends sister and second he doesn't feel like he can do a lasting relationship and that is what Twyla deserves. So Twyla gives up and leaves, before too long

Ryan and Twyla have been in love with each other for so many years but neither knows about it. Ryan and Zach, Twylas brother have been very overprotective of her and effectively ensure that no men will pursue her. She doesn’t want any other men, she wants Ryan, but as she is his friend’s sister he knows that she is out of bounds for him and continues to resist his true feelings.

There is only so much a person can take and so after one massive argument, Twyla decides enough is enough and moves on
Twyla and Ryan. This story had more meat on it than I was expecting. Twyla has had a crush on Ryan since she was 16. He has been keeping her at arms length because he is pseudo adopted by her family when he was 12 and she was 9 or so. Now she's 26 and has faced her last rejection by Ryan. She goes to the city and moves in with an old friend who works at bar, kinda like Coyote Ugly. They dance but they don't strip. So there's some questionable slut shaming that kinda irked me. I gotta say, I did ...more

What do you do when the man you've loved for almost your whole life doesn't feel the same? When he treats you like a little sister and tries to run your life? Well, if you're Twyla Renee Taylor, you pack up your horse and you leave town, determined to make it on your own. And, if you're Ryan Easter, said man, you pick right up and go after the girl, because she can't possibly make it on her own.
