Down Home Cowboy
Asked where he'd be at this point in life, Cain Donnelly would have said anywhere but Copper Ridge, Oregon, living with his estranged brothers. But since his wife abandoned them, both he and his daughter, Violet, are in need of a fresh start, so he's back to claim his share o ...more

I was coming off the heels of reading two serious toned books and needed a diversion. Maisey Yates' series is the perfect escape for when you need to shift reading gears.
Cain Donnelly needed a fresh start: his wife left him and his daughter to never return. After four years of waiting for her he relocated from his home in Texas to Oregon - much to the displeasure of his daughter, Violet - leaving their ghost behind. Alison Davis is a young divorcee who left an abusiv ...more

Down Home Cowboy all kinds of delicious fun! A growly frazzled cowboy trying to raise a 16 year old and a bakery owner trying to reclaim her life. Both very much set against ever falling in love again but rocking an intense need to see each other nekkid. Mmhm.
Yall, these two were quite the mess of sexual tension, frustration, and a fear of anything 'romance'. Whew! They'd been pretty fucked over by life-- ...more

This is the 8th book in the Copper Ridge series but it can be easily read as a standalone. I have not read any of the previous books and did not feel like I missed something. Which is always good.
Most know, that I enjoy Cowboy books among Rockstar and Hockey books , when it comes to romance books, so it was really way to like this book.
This was the first book I read by Maisey Yates but I plan on reading more of her books. I like
I've always liked Alison and I was excited to see that she got her own book. She's a genuinely good person who needs a little good for herself. Cain is stubborn and stoic and it's delightful to read him fall. As always, the group of friends are fun. Same for seeing Cain's brothers.
Plot wise, it was sort of what I expected: a hefty portion of teenage drama with a side of adult dram ...more

Alison has worked hard to rebuild her life after her disaster of a marriage an ...more
Maisey Yates’ Copper Ridge series has been a bit of a mixed bag for me. I adored Last Chance Rebel, but let’s just say that I did not feel much love for Slow Burn Cowboy. On my other hand, my Guest Reviewer Amy clearly enjoyed Hold Me, Cowboy. So we were two out of three coming into Down Home Cowboy.
And we have another winner.
Neither Cain Donnelly nor Alison Davis are looking for a relationship. But they are both looking for sex. Four years is a long dry sp ...more
It woke her up.
I've read every book in Maisey Yates’ Copper Ridge series (even the spin-off titles), and there's a reason I keep coming back to this small coastal town—aside from the sexy cowboys, that is.
Maisey Yates is a smart writer. Her books have heart and humor—two very important elements when it comes to romance—and they also manage to delve into some pretty touchy subjects in a way t ...more
Caine Donnelly has a fair bit on his good looking shoulders. His family (The Donnelly Brothers); moving ranches from Texas to Oregon; his 16 year old daughter Violet, as well Violet's boss, the first woman he's actually been attracted to in a looooooong time, Alison Davis.
With the incredible skill of making me hooked before I knew it, I was in a world of love, laughter, pain, warmt ...more
Both Cain and Allison have appeared in previous stories, so I was super excited to see them finding their happily forever after with each other, those two really deserve it, if anyone. I just didn't expect them to break my hea ...more

What a sweet story! I really enjoyed both MCs here. Cain, that hottie, yes-stereotypical-cowboy and the damaged and healing Alison. I hadn't read any previous books in this series so I came in completely blind to either character's past. I liked that actually. It was a refreshing change to come at a character like Alison, a woman who escaped a brutal marriage, but had already progressed so far as to be firmly healed i ...more
