Best friends for life. That was their pact.

Feisty, spitfire Hannah Prescott yearns to get the bulls she raises to the top rodeo circuit finals. Being a woman in a male-dominated career means she fights harder for what she wants, and romance plays no part in her goals. But when everything's on the line and her best friend asks her to play pretend, what's a girl to do?

Dani (Dani Reviews Things & Love in a time of Feminism)
This wasnt a bad book. But it wasnt a good book either. It was just, on average, a meh book.

The plot was a bit of a disaster. People thrown in here and there for the sake of drama without it really making sense for the story. Like Tabitha, Codys ex, suddenly showing up out of nowhere, HOURS after a run-in with another ex. And all out of town. What really are the chances of that happening??? Characters also behaved in strange ways, like Hannahs weird leap of logic towards the end. The plot didnt

Laurie LeClair has been a favorite of mine from the time I fell into her Once Upon a Romance Series. Her stories are sweeter than any greeting card, smoother than silk and as addictive as a chocolate cake. The Cowboy's Rebellious Bride highlights the best of Ms. Leclair. She simplifies what humanity tends to complicate. To understand what love is, we have to first find it within ourselves. That message shines brightly with every character she writes. Her tales open up the heart and that is what ...more

The Cowboy's Rebellious Bride (The McCall Brothers 1) - PG13
Violence: none
Language: fewer than 45
Sex: descriptive kissing, disrobing but no details.

There is definite attraction between the two mains, but there are no details.
I think there are more books in this series, but I am tapping out now. I don't really care for the H or h as people. The both do have redeeming characteristics, and I am glad they matured and got their HEA.

Cody used to be in the rodeo but he came home because his family needed him too. He always seemed to be the one everyone could count on. His Grams got sick and he came home and helped with her. When she passed away he stayed because Gramps needed him. He had a strong sense of honor, being there when he was needed and doing right by his family.

His best friend as far back as he could remember is Hannah. Hannah and Cody were always getting themselves in to messes when they were younger and it looks

Awww! A sexy cowboy and his best friend, both with severe relationship hangups, yet neither wants to loose the other, nor do they want to take the next step! Both Cody and Hannah have lost their parents in traumatic accidents, but Cody has always had his two brothers and of course his Gramps and Grams, until her recent passing that is. Seeing his Gramps basically giving up on life is one of the toughest things he will ever have to witness, and only one thing would bring him out of his funk. But ...more

Soaring Up High

This is such a sweet friends to lovers romance! I loved the entire westerner setting. It made the entire book even more charming. I also loved Cody and Hannah. Both of them of been friends since childhood. They have had each others backs since they knew each other. A series of circumstances make them cross the line from friends to lovers. And boy, it is super adorable.

This entire novel had me hooked on the first word. Despite it being a super short novel and quick read, I did not

I did not like this book. I had to encourage myself to keep reading it so I didn't have to put it on my DNF shelf, and I was constantly looking at how many pages were left.

I'm trying to figure out what is was about the book that I didn't like and I can't think of one cohesive reason. The primary one is probably that the story was super dry. I didn't think the main characters, Cody and Hannah, had any chemistry, which is disappointing seeing as they have been friends since they were young. I'm

A charming, light hearted HEA with laughter, love, and bringing family together to create an endearing story. This is a wonderful start to the series of the McCall brothers in Honor, Texas. Throughout the story there are plenty of times were you'll be laughing one moment and the sighing the next. The author's writing perfectly executed the feeling of innocence in small town living.

The Cowboy's Rebellious Bride is a sweet western romance set in Texas. It's the first in a new series by Laurie Leclair and will appeal if you like your romance clean. I struggled a bit with getting into the story though I enjoyed it overall. The pace was a bit slow for my liking and I couldn't get my head around the nickname "Cods", short for Cody. In Australia that's slang for a rather tender part of the male anatomy.

This story is so sweet it'll give you a tooth ache, in a good way. Great character development combined with a romantic story that carries on beyond the marriage makes this romance stand out from the norm. The editing needs work-too many instances of misused words (probably typos) that they began to distract from the story. But a great story it was, nonetheless. I look forward to continuing this new series by LeClair.

Strong family story

I enjoyed this fun story of lifelong friends finding something more. It took a lot for Hannah to realize she could love Cody without fearing she would lose herself along the way. Strong family values and support along with the pet miniature horse added to the enjoyment.

Friends to Lovers is one of my favourite tropes and I thought the story premise was good. However it didnt flow for me, I found the writing style rather choppy and uneven and the heroines mindset at the end of the book illogical. This is the second book I have read by this author and I dont think I will be trying any more. ...more

Best friends find themselves perfect marriage material!

I enjoyed the book, I did it a bit slow starting out as there seemed to be so much going on and too many characters being introduced at once. But its a great story, and a good read. I found myself laughing at the shenanigans the two characters got themselves into, and tried to get OUT of.

Just the right amount of twists and turns

The story had just the right amount of twists and turns to keep it interesting. In the end, and I had to decide whether not to give up on love.

Ok

This was an ok book but nothing really special. It was clean but really nothing of note for me. Since it was free I guess that I cannot complain. I will not add to my read again list.

Cody and Hannah

Found this relaxing, funny at times and enjoyable. The interaction between best friends is special. However, the closeness between besties is can they grow beyond their closeness.

The book was a little "too sappy" for me. There seemed to be a lot of repetition - characters didn't grab me and the story line not very strong and a little unbelievable. But that's me and others might enjoy.

A great read!

This little story hooked me in the first few pages. Unlike so many books as soon as a couple funds love the story is over. This one continues into the problems that can happen after marriage, they problems until they reach a conclusion. Fun book to read!

Hannah and Cody start out as friends and both have to decide if they have something to build a future on. The first book in the McCalls . Looking forward to the next book.

Hannah and Cody..

I found this book, inspiring, funny, and enjoyable to read. Hannah and Cody have been wonderful friend since childhood. They got into trouble and got one another out of trouble, but usually got caught doing a no no. I loved reading this story, it made my day.

True love prevails

Unexpected everlasting love finds a way to bind lovers together, unconditionally. Slow moving and sometimes unrealistic, yet keeps you hoping they find happiness with each other.

Cute little fast read about love and life Not a lot of plot but still cute and easy to read.

This book was an interesting enough read, but it was plagued with poor grammar and word usage. For example, neither the author nor the editor knows the difference between their and there.
