Sometimes being a Pennington can be a disadvantage.

Cordell Pennington considers himself a simple cowboy and he doesn’t want to be in Hawaii. He doesn’t even want to be on vacation until he meets Leah Pennington, the manager of The Puanani Resort. What intrigues him is not that they have the same last name or that they are both from Arizona. It’s her habit of vacillating

NhaughtyV says Damn the Zon Save the Reviews
“Why did temptation have to come in a six-foot, brown-haired cowboy with the nicest smile and the biggest heart?”

Cord and Leah Pennington share more than just a last name, they share a desire to escape…one from being only known for their family name and the other from a past they would rather forget. The chemistry between them grows with each passing day, but when a little white lie causes a rift between them, these lovers are left with a choice—to give up and move on or to forgive and take a

4 1/2 Star Review.....

So, where to start? Firstly, I’d like to say I fell in love with this author’s writing when I started reading her Poker Flat and Last Chance cowboy series. Interesting and sometimes complex characters and fun, engaging and intriguing storylines made these books totally addictive and impossible to put down before the last page was turned. Secondly, the author’s writing style. Nothing grabs me more than a great plot where everything flows seamlessly and the dialogue is

Cordell (Cord) Pennington lived in Arizona on his family ranch. He was one of the Pennington’s (translation-rich). But he didn’t like to flaunt it. He found out his high school sweetheart was only with him because of his money. His sister is going to get married and he owes her so she has him go to a small island in Hawaii to check out a potential resort to get married. There he runs into the resort manager, Leah Pennington, no relation. He doesn’t let on that he is one of the Pennington’s. His ...more

One of the very first things that grabbed my attention was Leah's strange behavior. After a while, Cord picked up on it.

In spite of Leah's secret, she still wanted to get to know Cord and he was as anxious to get to know her. Little did she know that Cord was keeping his own secret.

I liked Cord, Phil, and the locals on the island. Being honest, Leah was not my favorite. It bothered me that she didn't fight for herself. She was a bit too timid for my taste. She and Cord had chemistry, but there

Cord is such a likable and caring man to go to Hawaii just to check out a location for his sister's honeymoon. And who wouldn't fall in love with a guy that would do that for his sister? And yes, he is that Pennington! He does get more than he bargained for in Leah, although there is something that is not quite right in her reactions to being touched. Their story is beautiful and heartbreaking at the same time, as Leah reveals her past. A journey to a HEA that is filled with ups and downs, when ...more

Hot cowboy, Hawaiian paradise!

Love LOVED this book! Loved Cords easy going personality, and the sweet way he treats Leah, the hotel manager. These two are so laid back, they could have meandered around and never gotten together if not for cords gentle persistence. Leah has had some bad experiences with men. One that affected her job and career, so she’s extra careful to not involve herself with any relationships. But cord reminds her of home, and he’s so sweet and HOT! How could she resist?

Aloha Cowboy is book one in the Island Cowboy series by Lexi Post. This is Cordell “Cord” Pennington and Leah Pennington’s story.

An entertaining story, wonderful characters, hot chemistry, with some twists and surprises.

I loved how I felt a connection to Cord and Leah and could feel their emotions. Cord's family was a great addition to the story.

It was fun learning about Hawaii. I am looking forward to the other brothers' story. FYI, contains mature content.

Snagging A Hot Cowboy!

Aloha Cowboy: WOW! Loved it so much! Great dialog and wonderful writing. Loved that Cord went to Hawaii to do some investigating and found Leah who was as layed back as him. The worked well together. I loved the challenges that they went through but it made them stronger. Lexi Post did another great job of writing. I fell in love with the characters.

Love in Paradise

Loved the Island setting and descriptions putting you in this tropical paradise along side Cord and Leah as they journey to their HEA. Their thoughts and actions so controlled by each of their pasts, there are a lot of issues they face.
A sweet romance with feelings and a bit of heat.

This is another great story by Lexi Post. A must read.
