I tried numerous times to get into this story as so many of my Goodreads friends really liked it. I however just couldn't read more than a page or two before I would put it down and pick up a different book. I finally had to admit defeat and DNF.

I'm not much into insta-lust or reading books that do nothing but have the MCs pant after each other (mentally or otherwise). I think if the book hadn't had the first part filled with both of them mentally panting almost within seconds of meeting, maybe

A Cowboy Firefighter for Christmas was a very good read.

Likable and relatable characters with a very entertaining storyline.
I enjoyed watching Trey and Misty connect, from the first moment you know these two belong together.

Overall this was a sweet and fun read that left me with a heart full of happy feels.

Thank you Sourcebooks Casablanca via NetGalley for the advance copy.

A Cowboy Firefighter for Christmas was one of those random impulse buys that I picked up at my local library book sale. I’m a sucker for Christmas-themed romances, but the majority of these stories seem to be novellas. Therefore, it can be difficult to find full-length novels centering around the holiday, so when I do, I always take a closer look. Just the title alone caught my eye. Cowboys? Firefighters? Christmas? What’s not to like? I’d never read this author before, b

I received an ARC of this title in exchange for an honest review and here it is.

This is the first novel by Kim Redford that I've read and it certainly won't be the last, and here's why. What a sweet, lovely town Ms. Redford has created with Wildcat Bluff! She's peopled it with wonderful, quirky, funny and charming secondary characters, a brave, sexy hero in Trey and a smart and sassy heroine in Misty.

I know that romance and fanfic authors don't get nearly enough credit for their work, but I didn't really *know* it until I picked up my first of the genre from the library's display of holiday books. TL;DR: this is the best book I've read in months. It is nearly flawless.

On the very first page, we get our leading lady driving to her vacation on a back-country road when suddenly a half naked golden god of a man emerges from the smoldering brush. Is he our cowboy firefighter? Of course. Does she
This book stole my heart when I found out the little ranch town was a haven for cats - not just any cats, but Hemingway cats (Polydactyls). As Misty explores the town, she finds them everywhere and they each have a special personality. It was a beautiful touch to really make the town unique from all the other western towns I've read about.

Now, Misty is on a mission to find out who has been burning down the Christmas Tree Farms. Which seemed like a bit of an odd job to take on considering she hat

A Cowboy Firefighter for Christmas by Kim Redford is the quintessential Christmas story that I would expect to see as a Hallmark movie. Trey Duval is perfect, I'm not kidding, he practically has no flaws! He runs his family's ranch and he's a volunteer firefighter, everyone likes him and he gets along with everybody. He's not dark and brooding, he has a great family no deep dark past, he is a happy guy. It's almost annoying. (lol) Misty Reynolds, however, isn't. Misty had a tough chi

Misty is a troubleshooter, on her way to a job in Wildcat Bluff to secretly investigate some suspicious fires for a company in the area. But on her way there, she comes across Trey, local firefighter and cowboy, who is actually in the process of preventing the spread of another local fire, and elicits Misty's help. This is the start of some sweet chemistry between the big city girl and the small town boy.

~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for a Wicked Reads~~

This is a good chunky read which is easy to slide into and find a whole evening has vanished! It is really rather fun, not too suspenseful and the Christmas setting adds to the story, even if the leads have reason to hate it. The attraction between Misty and Trey may start due to her first meeting Trey without his shirt on, but develops into something which is both friends and a whole lot more. Their dialogue definitely

This book was a really slow start and then it just steadied out. I didn't exactly love the book but it was a nice quick read with some fun parts.

Trey and Misty as the main characters just didn't grab a hold of me like I would have enjoyed. They just came off a little too stereotypical for me and I found myself rolling my eyes a lot.

It had it's moments and I loved some of the secondary characters at times more than the main characters.

If you like cowboys who just so happen to be firefighters too,

Trey isn't very subtle, "he leaned down so his lips were close to her ear. “Are you hungry for food or something else?” I think Misty would prefer her man to run around naked, "he grabbed his jeans, jerked them on, and zipped up. “You just ruined my best view by covering up your body.” She pouted as she sat up." I really liked this book, Trey was really entertaining and he knew how to treat a lady.

I recommend this book if you love the magic of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, love the magic of Christmas morning, or love a good romance. I did not know what to expect when I started this book. I did not expect to be thrust into a charming small Texas town and become involved with two characters I liked so much This book was a great Christmas surprise. Definitely recommended.

Caveat: I am not the target market for most romance novels.

I loved the idea of this book - the city girl trying to escape Christmas, the country boy showing her new stuff. The cowboy AND firefighter. But the dialogue was super choppy - there were several places where it skipped or repeated as if it had been edited in one part but then not scanned for continuity, there wasn't really a ton of tension between the characters - they kinda just knew they were gonna get together right away, and the lan
