3.5 stars. Audiobook review. Bell is a saint for turning out how she did with two of the most poisonous and evil people as her kin. I'm genuinely surprised she wasn't messed up but rather a well adjusted adult. The circumstances under which she grew up were atrocious and inhumane. It goes to show that caring for a child is much more than making sure they don't starve. Her connection with Dane was sweet and tender. The growth in the sexy Cowboys is quite staggering. I enjoyed the change in Bell ...more

Her Lucky Cowboy was a heartfelt and moving home town ranch story.

Dane, the youngest and last of the Bowden brothers, was gored by a bull and has permanent damage to his leg. The night of that tragic accident, Dane was saved by a young doctor who happened to be in the rodeo crowd.

Bell was the unwanted, bastard child of a successful man. His mother raised her in a home filled with bitterness and hate, hidden away from everyone. Her upbringing left her isolated but Bell still managed to make

Wow! Ryan wrote an amazing emotional read that had me in tears and looking forward to a fantastic ending. She did not disappoint with this!

I loved the beginning when it starts out where Bell saves Dane for the first time when he was 15 and fell off his horse. Then jumps into present day where she saves his life after getting hurt during a Vegas bull riding show.

I really felt for Bell and the way she grew up. Her father was married and had a daughter when he had an affair and the result was

Her Lucky Cowboy…whoa! I think I might be the lucky one, to have gotten my hot, little hands on this book. I’ve enjoyed the other Montana Men, but Dane is officially my favorite—as I suspected he might be from the start.

Years ago, Dane Bowden was saved by an angel—a beautiful girl that disappeared without a trace. At the end of his championship rodeo career, Dane suffers an accident that leaves him prone…and staring into the same blue eyes that saved him a decade earlier.

I have zero complaints. ZERO! I really liked this story, it was exactly what I needed to read right now. A sweet and sexy romance with a smidgen of suspense. Probably wouldn't consider it a "favorite" like most of my five-star reads, but definitely worthy of the rating.

I very much loved the series, I liked how Dane was careful and patient with bell. He always tried to bring her out of her lonely life it was cute. Dane and Bell together were great, glad they got their HEA and even an adoptive daughter. Can't wait for those kendrick men

Jennifer's Ryan's Montana Men series has gotten some really great reviews. I have some friends who really love this series, and this book in particular. Unfortunately, Her Lucky Cowboy is really not a good fit for me.

I should say that there are some really great things about Her Luck Cowboy. I really love and appreciate that the hero of the story, Dane, is not a jerk. He's a nice guy, albeit one who has enjoyed fooling around with a lot of women. But Dane does respect women, he just wasn't
Dane and Bell. I bought this with another of her books that I hated. But I thought since I had it I should listen...
I ended up really enjoying it! It's like it wasn't written by the same person.
Kind of Bones and Booth story. Bell is a genius with a horrible childhood who grew up to become a applauded surgeon in her mid 20's. She really does come across as super smart, and not just 'cause the author said so. She's cool and collected and short on social skills because of her horribly sheltered

I really liked the premise of this, so I was eager to see how it played out.

I loved Bell and Dane as characters. They're so different from it each other, but it really works. I enjoyed seeing them teach each other things. There were a few sweet moments that left me wanting more scenes of their relationship growing.

My main complaint is that there was a lot going on and things progressed quickly. In less than one month, they start dating, there's an accident, then a death, then they move in,

I decided not to finish this one, at least for now. It was a bit misleading when I read an article about this one. I thought there was a secret baby child between the hero and heroine of this book, but turns out the heroine is the secret baby child. Not the type of 'secret baby child' I like to read. It was just going slow for me.

What an emotional ringer Her Lucky Cowboy happen to be. When I started to read this I didn't expected to be an emotional wrecking ball. Yes, Miley Cyrus Wrecking Ball popped in my head. Rough doesn't begin to describe what I went through as I read through the story. A lot of it stems from Bell's backstory. Oh my, I don't know if we could give an even more tragic backstory. Basically, she's the bastard daughter of Dr. Warwick, who made a mistake when he younger. Too

He couldn't get her off his mind. She stayed there like a ghost haunting his thoughts. Just when he thought of other things, she popped up and became a part of them.

I really wanted to like this more than I did. It started out pretty great, but there were a few things that bugged me a lot. Another reviewer mentioned that it felt like Bell just felt sorry for herself without doing anything to improve her situation, and I agree. There was a lot of telling us how special and different and alone Bell was without actually showing it happening.

The other issue I had with this was the vaguely uncomfortable misogyny throughout the book. Let me be clear: Dane, the

Wow. I finished this book late at night and I couldn’t go to sleep afterwards. I was so emotionally bankrupt that I was physically affected by the story.

Don’t get me wrong, this is a beautiful love story and what I expect from the lovely author. There was just so much heartache and sorrow that I spent most of the book in tears. I tend to get overly emotional with certain content but other readers may not feel the way I do. And that is completely okay. Certain aspects of the book wrenched my

I'll give this one a 3.5. It was my first time reading this author, and while it didn't blow me away, there was a lot to like about this book. I particularly liked the heroine, though she did frustrate me at times. I liked how she handled herself and the hero. Her character really evolved over the course of the book. Growing from a more solitary figure to one more open and comfortable with social interactions and love. I was a little meh on the hero, though, I did feel the connection that they ...more

I fell in love with Dane Bowden in this latest installment of Jennifer Ryan's Montana Men series. This story is full of romance, suspense and family. Once I started reading it I couldn't put it down. Dane is such a great lovable hero, and Bell is a truly likable heroine and their chemistry is undeniable.

Jennifer Ryan's Montana Men series is not to be missed if you are a fan of a great cowboy romance. All of the Montana Men novels can stand alone, but if you love a great fictional family, I

An awesome read.

I really liked the character of Bell, she had a really crappy family and childhood but grows up to be smart and caring without really knowing how to trust or love.

In enters one hot sexy cowboy named Dane, her next door neighbor, who helps her learn to believe and trust. Years ago she saved his life and left him believing in an angel. He keeps searching for his angel and ends up with a bunch of blond bimbos instead.

Having saved his life again she will find that he is going to hold

Damn I adore Jennifer Ryan's hard loving cowboys and Dane is way up on the list of favorites. This is a fantastic story of a young woman who finds herself the center of attention in one cowboy's life. For someone who has never really had anyone in her life who truly loves her Bell is a bit overwhelmed especially when that cowboy has a reputation like Dane Bowden's. Dane is persistent though and treats her with kindness, caring, and love. Just made my heart go awwwww!!!

I definitely recommend this

It doesn’t take us long in Her Lucky Cowboy to learn that our heroine Bell is heroic, a brilliant doctor and deeply if secretly in love with our hero Dane Bowen youngest brother of the Bowen clan featured in the first two Montana Men books. Dane’s tattoo reveals that despite his hedonistic lifestyle Bell has been his literal dream woman since their brief encounter when he was fifteen. Let me start out by stating I loved this book.

I loved this book so much - I didn't like the others as much, but this one really was great. It pulled at your heartstrings, left you sad at the outcome of certain situations and overjoyed with how things turned out in the end. I laughed, I cried, I sighed, I wanted to punch people - a book that gets your emotions involved is a great one, in y opinion.

I got this in a book box.
I really liked this, despite some of Bell's story being quite over the top. It hooked me from the prologue, where they meet as kids, and she rescues him then disappears.
When they next meet, she is a doctor and saves him again.
Now that Dane had met his goal, he took a good look at his life and how he wants the next step to go as he takes over the family ranch. He realized that he needs Bell, and he has to change his ways. He does so with gusto.
Bell had it rough growing

These two were destined to meet again. Dane was the young man that captured Bell's heart years ago riding along the prairie free. Bell was the angel that swooped in and helped him when he thought he would die. She has been in his heart for years. He sees her again thinking that maybe he was dreaming. After being critically injured, Bell will be the saving grace for his life and his future. The two go through much growth together and individually. Dane has the loving, caring come together family. ...more

Let me start by saying I enjoyed reading this book. I loved watching Dane settle into his new role as rancher and Bell learning to stand up for herself. I just thought that this book was trying to be too many things without being fully successful at any of them. The romance, while sweet, fell a little flat for me. And the suspense didn’t really have any mystery behind it. I thought it was obvious who the villain was and that he’d be caught. I wasn’t invested in finding out the how’s or the why’s ...more

Great new friends

Sadly I didn't discover Jennifer Ryan's books until this year and have read 10 or more. This book, like the others had a great story line and characters that you loved and others that just make you mad. It's a fast moving, hard to put down book (I'm reviewing this at 5:30 AM after reading all night). I definitely recommend Her Lucky Cowboy to anyone who loves a great book!

Bell's story was just sad I hate that she was treated like trash by. her family they acted like she didn't exist just because her father had her through an affair. They acted like is had sinned it wasn't her fault she was a child I and I hate the way they treated her.
I am so glad she found Dane and his family they are all amazing and great to her. This story was beautiful. Loved the epilogue!
Great read definitely recommend it! <3 :D
