Trust me…the title makes sense…eventually.

I’m sitting back reading CowSex and hubby walks in.

Me: Hubby, how am I going to talk people into reading this book when it’s called CowSex?
Hubby: Is it about his good mooooves?
Me: Ha bloody Ha…
Hubby: Is it uderly sexy?
Me: Oh Geez, STOP. I haven’t even worked out why it’s called CowSex yet?
Hubby: Maybe, he’s all animal in bed?

CowSex
By: Lesley Jones
5 Stars

While Lesley Jones has made a name for herself with the Carnage series, CowSex proves that she can rip our hearts out in a book and she can also write a Rom-Com that is full of laugh out loud moments yet still tells a fantastic story!!!

Gracie Elliott has arrived in Colorado on holiday for 6 months. She made quite an entrance to say! Having just survived a long flight from London, in which she drowned her sorrows with excessive amount of wine. Shed some tears and cha

I wasn't sure what to expect of this book, with having such a different title, but it's Lesley Jones and I Loved her Carnage series( I loved that Carnage had a little mention in this book) so I didn't read the blurb and went in blind! Don't be fooled by the title, no actual cows are involved in this novel! Haha!

This is just what I needed! A proper feel good, laugh out loud romance! I bloody love Gracie Elliot! She's a proper spit fire, who says things as she sees them! As soon as she's in Color

Every now and then you just drop on a gem—a Facebook post catches your eye, you end up spending a couple of quid and before you know it you have yourself a new author to stalk. And in my case you also end up spending more to grab yourself a paperback copy to take to a signing next month (to add to the two others you bought this week for the same reason, shhhh let’s not tell Mr. A). Anyhoo, CowSex—where there’s not a shagging heifer be found, but there is Koa Carmichael.

Loved this book so hard. The banter, the sex, the storyline - every single part of this story had me hooked and I couldn’t stop reading. I had this ridiculous smile on my face throughout and even snort laughed in places.

Lesley has delivered a book that will warm your heart, give you butterflies and a serious case of Book boyfriend envy. CowSex for the win!!

Gracie Elliot, 32, is bound and determined to take her Colorado vacation with her long-time live-in boyfriend or not. So when he bails, she goes alone. Only turns out she’s not hauled up in the snowy retreat by herself.

My expectations on this were way off what the story actually delivers. The blurb suggests a stranded together sexy, romantic comedy. Instead what I discovered is a tale about two people—one crazy and desperate, one with a lot of baggage, who find a reprieve from temporar

OMG I ABSOLUTELY BLOODY LOVED THIS BOOK 😍😍😍 I loved the banter and Smokin Hot Chemistry between Gracie and Koa and omg the phone conversations between Gracie and KOD and even Koa and KOD had me laughing out loud 😂😂😂. Loved how feisty Gracie could be, she is definitely no push over (must be the pink and purple hair😜😜😜). Ooh and I loved having Franggy as the muse for Koa 😍 AMAZING 😉 I just loved the whole plot to this book. Definitely highly recommend this to EVERYONE

Don't let the Title fool you! It's perfect! See that smile I'm still laughing. Fast and hard that's how I fell for Gracie and Koa. Gracie the Essex spitfire uprooted from across the pond (ahh see like my use of proper slang?). She has some bark maybe even some

Reading this book for me is like having a conversation with my best friend, theres something so comforting about reading British slang!
I loved Gracie's foul mouth and sassy attitude, she's exactly how I want to be when I grow up!!
Koa drew me in with his brooding behaviour (let's face it, we just love Aholes!) but stole my heart with his openness and honesty..

So, I have this new book boyfriend I’d like to introduce you to…he’s name is Koa and he is one sexy-ass cowboy. I also have a massive girl crush on an Essex chick named Gracie. I adore these two characters; separately they are great but put them together and they are just amazing. Their chemistry is off the charts but it’s more than chemistry that hooked me with these two; they have a connection and a bond that is so intense. The banter is freaking hilarious and I couldn’t get enough of it.

What can I say?! I absolutely adore LJs writing and this book just proves how diverse her writing can be. I'm not a massive fan of romantic comedy but LJs writing about a girl from the arse end of Essex going to America was always going to have seriously hilarious consequences. Right from the get go I fell in love with Gracie, a true Essex bird!

Hands down one of the funniest books I have ever read. I don’t think I have laughed my ass off so much.
Gracie’s the ballsy English bird, Koa the American. I loved the language barriers so hilarious with her speak it made for great banters. Their chemistry, the sexual tension there were so many things right with this story I could not find any faults. A great read and hopefully look forward to more from the other characters.

For an author who’s the queen of the “ugly cry”, and emotional plot lines, I wasn’t 100% sure how this book was going to play out. I mean, come on, CowSex? What the heck does that even mean? Well you’ll find out but it takes a while and it really has nothing to do with the mating rituals between animals of the bovine variety!

Gracie Elliott is one of those characters you’ll want to be friends with. She’s sassy, vulgar, intelligent and a bit whacky. She also has a tendency to use cockney rhyming

Fantastic writing, well paced story with well developed and likable characters. Even the secondary characters were delicious and gave the story an added dimension.
The chemistry and the edgy but hilarious banter between Gracie and Kao affirm Lesley Jones' brilliant ability to create an unpleasant, albeit sad situation and turn it into a snort-laugh out loud steamy rom-com!

Spoiler-free!!

I loved this book! It was a little different than the "norm" for Lesley Jones, and I found it funny and very entertaining! I loved Gracie and the fact that she's totally a no-nonsense kind of woman. She doesn't really take crap from anyone! She's mouthy. She's pretty brazen. And she seems to be a Carnage fan!

Koa has been screwed over more than once, so he's not really looking for love....and of course, it's gonna get complicated!

I laughed out loud several times with the witty banter and shenanigans, a whole lotta fun with this one! Cheeky British humor mixed with all-American country boy.

His past is all kinds of messed up and she’s just wanting a refreshing escape. When their worlds collide, flirty fun ensues.

A light, sweet read about second chances and quick love.
Gracie is unique and I loved reading her dialogue. Koa will steam you up and maybe just maybe make you angry before he makes you smile.

Mrs. Jones has achieved it again. She has written a novel that will capture your heart and bring some tears. These tears though are mostly tears of laughter, although there will be some of sadness, because well, life! As always Jones writes stories that compare to those of real life situations. Life is messy, beautiful, tragic, but also full of hope and this story touches on all of that.

In CowSex we meet Gracie, who has been in a loving committed relationship for years but finds herself wanting

Once again Lesley Jones does not disappoint. I did not want this book to end which doesn't happen that often. Koa was a gruff even cold bloke(as Lesley and Gracie would say) at the start. Gracie was an independent, smart, and kick butt and take no names girl from Essex, England. As fate would have it, Koa and Gracie meet under unusual circumstances in a small town in Colorado. There was never a dull moment in this book. I loved the British lingo and Koa's reaction. Laugh out loud moments mixed w ...more

With a title like CowSex you're left wondering what the? But all becomes clear as you immerse yourself in Gracie and Koa's story. Leslie Jones brings us a lighter read than we are used to but she still pulls at our heart strings as we follow them on their journey of love and laughter. Gracie thinks she has left her relationship woes far behind when she arrives in Colorado. Koa is hiding from his disastrous past relationships and avoiding anyone that may have th
