I Am Not Your Melody by Shoshanna Evers is a first reads win and I am giving my Honest opinion. Big Bad Bill Edwards of Bear Creek Saddle Idaho is a widower. His wife Melody bated life on the ranch. She was leaving Bill when her car was hit by a semi killing her. Bill just inherited his uncle's barand put an ad on line looking for a partner. Allies Crawford answered the ad and bought half interest. He even told her there was a furnished apartment on top of the bar. So Allies left Miami and drove ...more

Another victory for Shoshanna! You can read the summary of the book above. That overview tells you the highlights of what happens in the book. It does not tell you how refreshing this cowboy romance is. I have read dozens and dozens of cowboy romances, many by some of the best authors of western romance. There are basically a few plots, with many twists. Often the hero or heroine returns home after many years and renews a teenage love. Or someone new comes to town and falls in love with the loca ...more

Received an ARC from the author. Absolutely loved it! Out of all her books, this is my favorite. Cannot wait for the next in this new series. Heartwarming, exotic scenes that caught me up in the story and wouldn't let me put the book down. If you enjoy present day cowboys, you will fall in love with big bad Bill.

I realize this is a prequel, apparently, to a new series, and perhaps that explains why it seemed to move so slowly. I couldn't seem to get involved with the characters or the storyline. I'm not sure what is missing here, but something is.

I received a copy in exchange for a honest review.

Confession time... I love the movie You've Got Mail. The whole idea of meeting someone and getting to know one another through emails before seeing each other face to face. There's something about being yourself instead of whatever you think the other person might want. That is what initially drew me towards I Am Not Your Melody. I love the fact that Bill and Allie created this deep bond through emails, a bond that intensified when they finally d

Absolutely loved it! Out of all her books I have read so far, this is my favorite. Cannot wait for the next book in this new, Bunking with the Cowboys BEAR CREEK SADDLE, series. The story caught me from the beginning and wouldn't let go. Well written and unique. I highly recommend to everyone.

I enjoyed this sweet tale of cowboy love though I did have mixed feelings about Bill. Allie has put all her money into being a part-owner of a small town bar and is intent on making her dreams of being a successful bar owner a reality. She drives across country to meet up with Bill, original owner and now partner to Allie, and get started on re-opening their bar. She is broke and must make the bar successful to live. Bill (also known in Bear Creek Saddle as Big Bad Bill) is not expecting Allie t ...more

For a few months, Allie and Bill have communicated by emails. She thought maybe they had built some kind of friendship this way. That is until she drives from Miami to Melody Ranch in Bear Creek Saddle, Idaho, and comes face to face with the big cowboy. It seems like the two of them get along great together on the computer, but not in person. Allie has purchased half ownership of a bar owned by Big Bill, that he inherited from his uncle. This bar is a dream come true for her, but now the way Bil ...more

Shoshanna has a winner in her prequel to Bunking With Cowboys, Bear Creek Saddle Ranch series. I loved it, and am very much looking forward to the upcoming series! This prequel brings Allie Crawford and Big Bad Bill Edwards together. Both of them have been burned badly by romance, and they meet over the Internet, where Bill sells Allie half of his uncle's bar (he keeps the other half) and the bedroom above it in Bear Creek Saddle, Idaho. At this time, Bill owns the ranch, and it is called Melody ...more

I don't usually read cowboy romances. In fact, prior to this story, I only read ONE because it had some paranormal kinky stuff going on in there that I thought was interesting because I've never seen that kind of mixing in genres before.

However, because Shoshanna Evers is one of my favorite authors of all-time, of course I gave it a shot when she wrote this one. To say I was pleasantly surprised is an understatement. What Evers did was put the emotional into my previously prejudiced view of stoi

I am not your Melody is a sweet cowboy romance with a little steam. It starts with Allie taking a HUGE leap in leaving Miami to become partners in a bar in the Idaho, but little did she know that the bar would be so rough or her partner so surly.

Bill is still suffering from the death of his wife Melody, in in return the happy cowboy has turned in to the meanest bear in Bear Creek Saddle...that is until Allie arrives.

After a bumpy start, Allie and Bills relationship changes into something so wond

A modern day western story. Allie buys a bar unseen with all her savings from Bill who she'd developed an online friendship with. Broke and with nowhere to live, she turns up two weeks early to meet 'Big Bad Bill' who is more gruff in real life than his online persona. She's trying to be professional but ends up putting her foot in her mouth most of the time especially after she finds out the bar is in a worse state than she thought. I have to admit that their fighting got on my nerves after a w ...more

I love a story with small towns, sexy cowboys and love in the air. I thought this story was well written and unique, I loved the characters especially Big Bad Bill and Allie. Allie is feisty, trying to make it on her own and start a new life. Bill is set is his grumpy ways, broken from the past and lonely (he won't admit that though). When these two meet fires ignite and they can't help but reach for each other. Loved their passion for each other and their wild kisses. Love the ranch hands, grea ...more

I received an arc for an honest review. I enjoyed this prequel to a new series from Shoshanna very much. I love cowboy romances and this was unique to me. I enjoy reading about small towns but never considered enjoying reading about Idaho. Shoshanna did a great job of making me fall in love with Bear Creek Saddle Idaho (the sign of a talented author) I also enjoyed the chemistry between Allie and Bill, who both were stubborn and guarded with their feelings for each other. I also loved being intr ...more

I am a HUGE fan of cowboy romances and Shoshanna's "I am Not Your Melody" is now in my top five list of favorites!!!! I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED it! Big Bad Bill and Allie's chemistry burns up the pages! If the rest of the stories from the Bunking with Cowboys Bear Creek Saddle Ranch series are as great as this prequel, we are in for wild and wonderful reads!!! Can't wait to read the rest of the series and see what else will happen in Bear Creek, Idaho. I received an advanced readers copy for an hone ...more

Such a fun, sexy and heartwarming start to a wonderful new series. Bill had been hurt in the past and never wanted to experience that kind of pain again. However when Allie blew into his life he couldn’t deny the feelings he had for her. I loved the story and the chemistry between these two is hot, hot, hot. The story pulled at my heart strings and me cheering for a happy ending for these two. I am looking forward to reading more of this series.

Shoshanna pulls you into the lives of Bill and Allie who have conflicting thoughts regarding relationships. Both have been severely hurt in the past and have emotional scars to prove it. The setting is at a ranch in a small rural town that lends itself to simple living. Read as Bill and Allie work through their dark past and strive for a bright future.

I enjoyed this novella. The author, Shoshanna, introduces you to the main characters and a few others. The book is just the start of a series, which I think is a clever idea. Bring in the readers...and keep them wanting more. I like this book more than any other written by this author. I will keep an eye out for future books in the series.

I did get a ARC of this book for a honest review.

This is the start of a new series that I think is going to be great! It is a well written storyline and has characters that have great sexual chemistry. Two souls hurt by love, team up together, but will falling in love with each other spoil everything! I really loved this book and am looking forward to more in this series.

The story had all of the characteristics that I like to discover when finding a good cowboy romance to read:

• One or more HOT alpha males
• Hot chemistry between heroine/hero
• Good story line
• Good backup characters
• Drama
• Romance

I will most definitely be looking forward to reading more of the upcoming Bunking with the Cowboys series.

I was given an Arc of this book, for an honest review. The story was interesting and kept me wanting to know what was going to happen next. I was rooting for this couple from the beginning. They both had issues to overcome and I think they will manage. Very good story. You won't be disappointed.

Sometimes it is hard to trust again, to love again and sometimes you just have to put it all on the line. I love books about love at first sight, overcoming issues and moving on.
