I enjoyed the interaction of the couple in this book. I really like how the author was all about showing the female character as a strong knowledgeable woman. Yet, also too stubborn to allow herself the luxury to be vulnerable.
Which for Dr. Samantha Striker it could be very beneficial seeing she is an Emergency Room Surgeon. But as Sam just the woman it could come off as plain stubborn if you didn’t take the time to know her. She is actually a very kind and caring doctor. She at her last hospit

There are some series that I simply become invested in the outcome of the various secondary characters knowing that one day their stories will be told. It’s been that way with The Gallaghers of Montana from the first story. This is a pretty amazing family who has had to face some difficult challenges, yet they’ve always been believable and realistic people to me, and when I can view characters as old friends it’s so much easier to fall into the next story without a l

Captivating cowboy contemporary romance set in Montana!

THE COWBOY AND THE DOCTOR by Eve Gaddy was truly a fun and entertaining read for me. I absolutely love Dylan and Samantha, and I loved watching their friendship evolve to love and passion! A good, fast-paced western romance with a touch of suspense that kept my interest until the very end. It's captivating with an action-packed ending that ties everything up nicely. Ms. Gaddy is a new author for me, and I will

This was an enjoyable romance although I would have liked a little more attention paid to the initial romance. The book is basically in two parts. First there is the romantic attraction between Dylan Gallagher, the titular cowboy and Samantha Striker, the doctor. He’s immediately attracted to the new doctor in town when he meets her at the hospital. Samantha has moved to this small Montana town from Texas after bad experience with romance. Plus, she used to volunteer at a women’s shelter and had ...more
This romantic suspense story is a delightful addition to this series and tells of the romance between the youngest - and only bachelor - Gallagher brother, Dylan and Doctor Samantha (Sam) Striker. He has a reputation for never being in a serious relationship, he’s dated lots of women but never for long and always remains friends with them after they split up. She has made some poor choices for dates in the past and is now wary of going out with any man, doubting her own ability to discern if the ...more

Dylan Gallagher works hard on his ranch where he breeds horses. He's a friendly sort of man who seems to have dated a lot of women all over town. I found this a little unbelievable given that he hadn't ever fallen for a woman. I let it pass but it was irritating for it to be brought up more than warranted.

Samantha Striker is a trauma surgeon from Texas who has a guarded heart. I found the dialogue and her personality to be immature for her work title and age. She is guarded from finding the wro

"Received an Advance Reader Copy in exchange for a fair review"
A good story with great characters and dialogue and so well written, I loved it! I’ve read this kind of plot before, but in “The cowboy and the Doctor” it all flows smoothly and skillfully and you really take pleasure in reading it.
Of course there’s this charming hero, Dylan, you cannot but fall for him. While he’s far from my being my usual favorite kind of hero (the wounded hero), he’s really captivating, a flirt, as we are told. I

I truly enjoyed The Cowboy and the Doctor by Eve Gaddy, the fourth book in The Gallaghers of Montana. Dylan Gallagher does not get serious with any woman he dates. He is too busy working with his horses and his ranch. All things change once he meets Dr. Samantha Striker. After a number of bad relationships, Samantha plays it hard to get, not even falling for Dylan’s heart-melting charm. However, the more time they spend together, the sexier their relationship becomes. A problem arises when Saman ...more

Some of my favorite authors write for Tule Publishing. Eve is one of them! She has shown again how to write a story to pull you into your Reading. Samantha moved to Marietta to work as a trauma surgeon after moving away from a deadly damage. Major Spoiler! She runs into Dylan and goes to visit his ranch. He raises Norwegian Fjord horses and has one that is dangerous. Trouble kicked his manager and went to the hospital and finds cancer.

Eve Gaddy’s fourth Gallagher book, The Cowboy and the Doctor may just be my favorite. I liked the suspense part of the story as much as the romance. In fact, that element was a pleasant surprise that I didn’t expect. The story flows smooth with good guys and bad, along with some awesome dogs and horses. The kind of story that draws you in to the Gallagher world.

Dylan like his brothers is a good guy just not a doctor. He is all cowboy, with his love for horses and dogs clearly showing through You

The Gallaghers of Montana have fallen and fallen hard and Dylan Gallagher is no exception. The last and single son of the clan, the eternal playboy and cowboy finally meets his match in the sweet and hard working ER surgeon Samantha Striker.

The doctor resists, the cowboy persists. The doctor deflects and the cowboy perseveres. Finally the doctor cracks and the cowboy swoops in a heartbeat. And when Dylan and Samantha officially becomes a couple, someone is not happy at all and will go over the e

Two persons neither of which is looking for romance and certainly not love, meet and find just that. Add in a deranged stalker and things get scary. Dylan Gallagher is the last of the Gallagher boys to be single and he rather likes it that way. Sure he’s had lots of girlfriends but nothing that lasted very long. And, all of his exes still like him anyway. Dr. Samantha Sinclair is a fairly new resident of Marietta and she has no desire to be a loser in love again, especially with a guy like Dylan ...more

A nice and easy read with a HEA, but not without a bit of suspense thrown in. Having only read the third book on the series prior to this one, I've found that the author does a fine job of weaving prior characters into her current stories. Within having read the first books in the series did not deter me from being able to follow the story lines from the earlier stories.

Even though Dylan and Sam found their HEA in this story, it ends with an enticing cliff hanger involving the long missing sist

The Cowboy and the Doctor is the latest addition to Eve Gaddy's contemporary western Gallaghers of Montana series. Set in and around the picturesque town of Marietta, this book has that warm and inviting feel I've come to expect from this series. Dylan is the only one of the four Gallagher brothers who is not a doctor — he's a rancher focused on breeding Norwegian Fjörd horses — but his interest in the land doesn't stop him falling for trauma surgeon Samantha Striker when he first sets eyes on h ...more

The Cowboy and the Doctor (The Gallagher of Montana Book 4)
This is Dylan Gallagher and Samantha "Sam" Striker's story.

Circumstances bring Dylan and Sam together. Dylan and Sam are extremely attracted to each other but neither are at a place in their life for a serious relationship. Will they give into this attraction?

This is a sweet, steamy romance with twists and suspense. I enjoyed Dylan and Sam's characters. Oh, I loved Shadow and Trouble.

FYI, contains mature content.  I voluntarily reviewed

The Cowboy and the Doctor is a very good read. The characters are fully formed and the setting is vivid. The reader is able to fully integrate into the story and never feels as if they have missed anything from the other books in the series. I will warn that the reader will want to go and read about the other Gallagher Brothers.

Really enjoyed this book! There is something about the way Eve writes that "speaks"to me. All of her characters come alive for me.... Her descriptions of people, animals, especially dogs, and scenes helps me to see the story as if I am watching a live play! This was a beautiful, sexy, sweet and suspenseful story..... I think Eve's characters act the same way normal every day people would which adds to the pleasure of reading the book!!!
Highly recommended. 😁 !!!!
3.50 It’s the youngest Gallagher brother turn to fall in love. Dylan is known as a lady’s man. He wasn’t a typical player, as all his ex-girlfriends remain his friend. Not quite sure how it pulls that off, must be his cowboy charm.
Dylan falls quickly for Dr. Sam. Sam is cautious, as she hasn’t had the best past where men are concern. Everything is going well for these two until a mysterious stalker enters Sam’s live.
It is an enjoyable read, but nothing makes this story stand out from others wi

Never have I ever

Read a book that was so excessively descriptive about food, thoughts and sex. The repetition and the unnecessary inner monologue just dragged everything. Like literally one of them would have a paragraph if not longer talking to themselves. And the only concept that he’s not a player but he’s dated half the town didn’t vibe with me. Like I don’t care how nice he is if every female say oh we went out for a little but it wasn’t that serious and he’s a nice guy it doesn’t gel well

Just reading along enjoying Samantha and Dylan trying not to fall for each other, and then wham danger and growing fear and I'm going to drop my rating to four stars cause I don't like being scared and it's not fair Samantha was in danger because of good deeds she had done.
But I kept it at five stars because it was that good and it was the good writing that had me enough into the scenes to be scared.
Good reading, good writing, good book.

This was a very intense story.
Dylan is the last single Gallagher brother. Samantha is a trauma surgeon at the hospital who has sworn off men. But there is an instant attraction between the two.
There was plenty of drama in the story with a stalker going after Samantha. Dylan and Samantha are both very stubborn, but really likable characters. They really worked well together. And Shadow was awesome as well. He added a lot to the story.
I love the Gallagher family.

Book four is the story of Dylan and Samantha. I loved this suspenseful read. Sam is wary about going out with Dylan because of her three prior relationships. When Dylan finally gets her to agree to go out, the unexpected happens and she gets a loyal companion in Shadow. It turns out that Shadow is a lifesaver. No spoilers, so grab your copy and get ready to fall in love with the youngest Gallagher brother.

I really enjoyed reading this romance novel. Gaddy done an amazing job in creating the characters and settings for the forth book in The Gallaghers of Montana Series. While I have read many love stories, I still found this to be a book that was hard to put down. The writing, plot line and back stories flow seamlessly together making this a truly great read. **
