Cowboy Summer begins the Blue Sky Cowboys series with a second chance romance that is full of emotions and feel-good moments as Cade and Jess navigate the present while trying to not repeat their painful past.

Jess made a choice to spread her wings in the city, far from her roots in ranching country. She left behind one broken-hearted cowboy who had believed they would be together for life… not just high school sweethearts. And to be fair, Cade made some real

I was gifted this book by a very good woman who is near and dear to my hear, Karen Hackett. I was summoned for jury duty, so I took this book with me to read!

It was an excellent read. There were times I LOL and got some interesting looks from others who had also been summoned. I think Ms. Kennedy may also have some other new readers joining her fan club!

Joanne Kennedy is a new author to me so to say I enjoyed this is a privilege and an honor! I do look forward to reading more of her creations!

This is my first book by Joanne Kennedy and truly loved the story. I really liked the characters, especially the way they seemed real and had problems just like normal people. Cade Walker had been in love with Jess Bailey since they were children. It took Jess leaving him after high school,that made him realize just how much he loved her. It took coming back home for Jess to realize the same thing. Great book

Joanne Kennedy is at it again. Throwing smart, sexy, kind, compelling cowboys at us. This is the story of Cade and Jess, high school sweethearts who went their separate ways after graduation. Jess went to the big city while Cade stayed on a Wyoming ranch. Neither has stopped loving the other -- but it takes them both some time to figure that out, and to save Jess's family ranch. This is a flat-out fun lope of a read, plus you learn about how to give calves medicine. ...more

I loved the multiple perspectives in this book. Not only do we get Cade and Jess, but we get her dad, Heck, and her stepmom, Molly. It gives us a deeper understanding of Diamond Jack Ranch and all its inhabitants. This story sets up nicely what I hope is the second book in the series about Jess’s brother, Griff, and the hardware queen, Riley.

Cowboy Summer!!

Wow!! Cade is one fantastic man!! He’s been through so much in his life but he has always loved Jess through it all. Jess had to deal with her mother leaving but she came through in the end. Great book!!

An ok read... just not my style. If you like cowboys, typical country type books this may be your jam. The author does a really good job with description and narrations.
