What a great collaborative work by three talented ladies! I just loved how these three love stories intertwined.

In Terri Osburn's first off-island effort, a forbidden sort of romance based on secret old crushes comes back to life in "Love Me Cowboy." Claire's best friend's little brother was the star of her real life dreams for one night years ago. When Claire did the walk of shame, sneaking from his bed in the early morning hours, she never thought she'd have to be so close to him again. Now,

I'm loving the new cover for this anthology. If you're looking for a quick holiday read, this is a perfect book for you.

4.5 Stars

Cowboys for Christmas was a very quick read but each novella are long enough you can enjoy each story to the fullest. The overlapping of the three stories making one was well done. With just a hint of a holiday theme, this book can be read any time of the year.

Love Me Cowboy by Terri Osburn shares Claire’s story. Claire grew up a little on the pudgy side, with a mother who never let her forget her shortcomings. This is a second chance romance and was sinfully sweet. I connected with Claire and swooned over her bull riding cowboy. It was fun seeing his unsurety and her growth. I laughed, and swooned. I look forward to reading more from Osburn.

Kiss Me Cowboy by Liz Talley gives us Georgia’s story. Lord the woman was funny. Georgia grew up poor on the

I love Christmas anthologies. This one was kind of unique in that all three authors are telling a story of the same time span and the same characters , each from the perspective of a different character. I read this because I really like books by Kim Law, but the other two authors also hit it out of the park! I had never read anything by Liz Talley before, but I will certainly read more by her now. Terri Osburn also did a remarkable job (as usual).

This is a fantastic compilation of stories by three amazing authors. Each of these stories occur simultaneously while 3 friends are reunited in Texas for the wedding of one. While centered around the holiday season, they aren't really holiday stories. They are however three incredible stories featuring 3 completely sexy cowboys and the women who steal their hearts. I highly recommend this book to everyone.

While not really a "holiday" book, I still enjoyed it. It happens to take place before Christmas, but the holiday didn't really play a huge part any of the stories.

The three stories focus on three friends who are in town for a wedding. Claire, Georgia and Mary Catherine have been friends forever. Of the three women, I liked Claire's story the best. I liked the friends to lovers part of her and Tyler's story. I though their ending was sweet. I felt like George's story was the most rushed and

The perfect read, three cowboys, three girlfriends home for a wedding. This story takes place in two weeks prior to the wedding. Three different POV from three different amazing authors. The stories all blended together, it was like reading one book.

Love Me Cowboy by Terri Osborn. This is the story of Claire, who grew up pudgy and now has lost weight, she still sees herself as fat. She meets up with Tyler again, whom she had a one night fling with many years ago ( she believed it was pity sex)

***ARC through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review***

A delightful & fun holiday wedding tale complete with three women and some hot, hunky and slightly misunderstood cowboys. One wedding, three authors and three POVs make for lots of laughter and warm fuzzies just in time for the holidays.

Cowboys for Christmas was a fun, different kind of love story. Each author puts their own personal touches and make each woman unique.

I think this is the first anthology I have read that flows through the same time frame for the main characters, in such intricate detail. It follows the same days and situations and made I was able to put myself in whichever characters shoes to see their point of view. It really was fun!

Each of these books in this set is enjoyable and well written. These books are about three best friends and the cowboys that steal their hearts. Georgia a tough as nails former pro volleyball player, Claire the sweet school teacher that needs to gain just a little more self-confidence and Mary Catherine an artist that is about to get married. The three cowboys that have caught the attention and hearts of these women are strong men, with gentle hearts. Tyler the bull rider currently home ...more

I received a free copy of this anthology from Kim Law as part of her review team. I am giving my honest review of the book.

I have read books by all of the authors before and was excited to have them all in one place working together to create a great holiday read.

I really enjoyed the idea of having all three stories together in one place so that the story never quite ended - it was fun to see the events unfold from each of the friends perspectives. Claire and Tyler’s story was probably my

My Musings

It's unusual when all stories in an anthology are stellar, but that is certainly the case with Cowboys for Christmas! I have always adored these authors and can't wait to read more of their books. Each story is emotionally charged with engaging characters and a satisfying plot. Although each author's has a different style, these stories flow beautifully from one to the other. Well done, ladies. Happy reading !

Get ready for a sweet and fun anthology filled with hunky cowboys, and three long time girlfriends that have vowed to stand by each other in good times and bad times.
Add to that three talented authors, Kim Law, Terri Osbourn and Liz Talley, and you have a winner.
The three stories occur at one time, all have a thread of second chances , hope , the power of friendship,relationships, love and of course the magic of Christmas.
So , start the holiday season with this feel good anthology. It will leave

"Love Me, Cowboy" was a cute love story revolving around past love rekindling. I liked Tyler and Claire and enjoyed reading how they worked through their misconceptions of the past to find the adults they have become. Terri Osburn has a nice easy flow to her writing that brought the characters to life.

Cowboys for Christmas by Liz Talley, Kim Law & Terri Osburn is a merry, feel good, holiday read. Three girlfriends, three hot cowboys, and one upcoming wedding make for a delightful anthology. While a different author writes each novella on a different girl and guy, they mesh together perfectly. The friends are unique, but I feel as if they are believable as best buds. The individual cowboys are perfectly for winning the hearts of Claire, Georgia, and even Mary Catherine, who thinks she has ...more

Fun! The three books in this anthology all work together to create one story focusing on a different character in the same time period in each book. Claire and Tyler were my favorite couple. I can not image how hard it was to coordinate the overlapping stories, but I loved it.

Each story would work perfectly on their own, but all three together in one book is fantastic. They flow nicely into each other, like a nice three course meal. Enjoy!
