Are you looking for a fun read that will draw you in and put a smile on your face? Then Kissed by a Cowboy is the one! I'm not exaggerating, I found myself smiling throughout this book. Cassidy is a lovable heroine! She is a total klutz and I loved that about her, because I can so relate! Jarrod is the real deal. You want cowboy? You got it with Jarrod Monahan! I really wanted the ranch life feel with this book and I got it. I was also satisfied with the small town Texas feel. Yeah, some of it w ...more

Kissed by a Cowboy was a fun, fluffy read for me. I didn't fall in love with the characters or the story line, but I still enjoyed the read. I really liked the details about the land and owning a ranch. I also thought it was such a cool thing that Cassidy was trying to do - own a bed and breakfast, sell strawberries and peaches, etc. It just seems like such a warm way to live, I wish I could have seen her hopes and dreams come to fruition a bit.

The plot did feel a bit repetitive to me. Jarrod wa

There are so many great opportunities to grin while reading Kissed By A Cowboy, the final book in the Four of Hearts Ranch series by Debra Clopton. From the quirky residents of Wishing Springs to some Monahan brotherly ribbing to Jarrod’s drawling dreaminess, be prepared to smile. A lot. And when Jarrod sets his mind to wooing… well, best have your fainting couch handy.

Jarrod and Cassidy have a history – both would call the other “the one that got away”. This history between them only increases

KISSED BY A COWBOY started off so fun with an awkward moment between two friends who haven't seen either other in a long time. It set the tone for this book full of small-town charm, a cowboy who wants to love a gal, and a gal who is trying to stand on her own. I enjoyed the humor, the swoon-worthy moments, the family relationships with all the heart and teasing, and the small-town feel. The heroine didn't work for me, but I loved the hero and the other characters.

I loved Jarrod through the whol

Kissed by a Cowboy was a very enjoyable ending to a wonderful series. This story can be read as a stand alone, but is even more enjoyable if the first two books are read before it.

Poor Cassidy! I really felt for her and all the hurt that she experienced in her first marriage. I wanted her to open her heart to love, but she was just so scared! This frustrated me a bit, but I realized this was a symptom of how hard her life had been up to this point. I still liked her as a character and looked for

Kissed by a Cowboy tells the story of the final Monahan brother, Jarrod. It was great to visit Wishing Springs again and see characters from the two prior books, especially Pebble and Rand.

Jarrod and Cassidy's story didn't pull me in like the prior two novels did. I found some of the actions to be abrupt and others unrealistic.

I look forward to future novels by this author and recommend this series for readers that enjoy contemporary westerns.

Set in the small community of Wishing Springs, Texas, Kissed by a Cowboy is a fun and entertaining read, filled with comical moments as well as heart-melting moments. What can you expect to find in this story? Cowboys, spark-filled romance, a quirky and loveable supporting cast, cattle rustlers, cowboys, recovering alcoholic, a pet pig named Clover, Thanksgiving in July . . . and did I mention cowboys?

I really love this series. Its packed full of small-town charm, lovable characters and of course swoony romance. This is the third book in the Four Hearts Ranch series, it can stand on its own, but all three books are fun to read and there is a little character overlap.

Jarrod is the oldest Monahan brother and helps run the family ranch. He's a great character and after meeting him in the first two books I was looking forward to his story. Cassidy is just getting out of a bad marriage and has

The ranch setting with wide open spaces and small town Texas community is so well-depicted it made me want to go live there! I liked Cassidy's plan of recovering from her divorce and taking back her life by returning to the place where she was happy as a child and teen and get lost in the hard work of starting a new business and farm. You could tell how severe her emotional issues were with the interactions she had with Jarrod. She kept their relationship rocky as she ran hot and cold- mostly co ...more

The setting of this story is charming and so is every last one of the characters. The premise is simple, but sweet. Romance blossoms softly and old friendships are revived. This contemporary tale is a lighthearted read with a hint of the old wild west.

I enjoyed getting to know Cassidy and Jarrod, but I’m afraid I didn’t connect to them as I would have hoped. Their relationship had some amusing moments, but I struggled believing the two of them and their up-and-down feelings for each other. I app

A hunky cowboy is hard to say no to, but this cowboy, even with his blue eyes and dark hair, is my least favorite of the Monahan clan. He was straight up stalker-ish in his pursuit of Cassidy Starr. No matter how many times she said, no, there he was. Don't get me wrong, I love a hero who goes for what he wants, but he tried a little too much in my opinion. Cassidy is a great heroine, scarred and reluctant, but resilient in her desire to start fresh in an old, familiar place. It's too bad that J ...more

Kissed by a Cowboy is the third book of the Four of Hearts Ranch series. This story really spoke to my heart. I felt an instant connection to Cassidy. I knew exactly what she had gone through and knew those reservations and feelings on finding love again.
I, also, found myself laughing a bit while reading this.
What a fun, sweet, clean and romantic story. I enjoyed catching up with past characters from the other book of the series.

After the last line of page 294 of Chapter 25 I was disappointed to see the title "Epilogue" scroll up because this signalled the end of the book shortly. Awesome storyline !

You know those days when you just NEED a book that will make you giggle until your sides hurt? You just want to smile and laugh and cry and just feel until your family asks what's wrong with you?

I have them a lot. And now that I've read Kissed by a Cowboy, this is absolutely one of those go-to books!

I won't give any spoilers but I WILL say that less than a chapter into the book, I knew I would LOVE it. It was engaging, romantic, sweet, deep,

I received an advance review copy in exchange for a fair and honest review.
Romance, clean.
This was more of a 3.5 for me but I rounded up because I loved all the side characters and the setting. Cassidy's adventure as she moves to the home and land she inherited from her Aunt Roxie is an escape from her hurtful present as she is moving on from a divorce. Her cheating, lying ex hurt her to the point she just wants to be by herself and depend on no one.
Her neighbor Jarrod is something she wasn't co

Holey smokin' pine cones! Make sure the fainting couch is plumped up and you have a fan or two handy...or you could just stick your head in a snow bank periodically if you live in Northern climes...because you are going to swoon over Jarrod Monahan.

He's a take-charge cowboy with a heart for service and his sights are set on Cassidy. Only gremlins from her past cause her to interpret his neighbourly overtures as overbearing. Talk about a confusing clash of wills and a definite lack of communicat

Debra Clopton writes an entertaining contemporary story, and this third in the series was awaited with anticipatory thoughts of fun and relaxed reading. I was not disappointed on that level. I knew with a title such as "Kissed by....." that it might entail more kissing than I like for my reading and reviewing. But I do enjoy Ms. Clopton's stories, so I dove into reading it.

The story is warm and entertaining and the characters realistic, charming, quirky, lovable. The little town has a bit of eve

She's determined to be single for the rest of her life and enjoy her business. But her neighbor and childhood friend, Jarrod keeps popping up to help her. Throw in some match making town people, cattle thieves, and an injured dog and Cassidy is having a hard time sticking to her ground rules.

I always look forward to reading books by Debra Clopton. This is a fun series and I am loving it. This series is about brothers, sticking together, working together and saving their ranch. There is such a sense of home and family in these books. And who can resist a handsome cowboy?

For Cassidy and Jarrod, this is a story of re-connection and a second chances. Jarrod sees Cassidy as his second chance at love and happiness. Cassidy views her return as a second chance at happiness and independence-

Kissed By a Cowboy is the third book featuring the Monahan brothers. I have really enjoyed this series and in a way, I'm sad that the last brother has gotten his HEA. Jarrod is the eldest of the three brothers. He is also the serious one. When he realizes he has a second chance at love with Cassidy, he decides to go for it. Unfortunately, Cassidy has other plans. Coming of a horrible divorce, she doesn't want to ever get married again.

While not my favorite of the three books, I did enjoy Jarrod

KISSED BY A COWBOY is the third book in Debra Clopton’s Four of Hearts Ranch Romance series. The first two books were Betting on Hope and Counting on a Cowboy. KISSED BY A COWBOY does standalone, but previous characters are all the way through the book.

Even though this book is part of a series, they can be read in any order because each book tells the story of how each of the three Monahan brothers found their wives. In "Kissed by a Cowboy," we get to know the oldest brother, Jarrod, who's finally starting to feel the urge to settle down, especially after seeing his brothers in marital bliss. Unfortunately, Cassidy -- the girl he's never forgotten -- associates love with heartbreak and weakness, so it's going to be a challenge for Jarrod to wi ...more

I have loved this series so much. Something about just regular Texas people making their home a small town just warms my heart. These cowboys feel like the real deal, and the women in their lives are just adorable. I loved getting to know Cassidy and Jarrod and watching them create their love story. Their story was so perfect and I closed this book wishing for nothing but the best for this entire family. Would love to see a novella that gives us a glimpse into their lives in the future.
