This is not my usual read, as I’m not very attracted to contemporary romances but the fact it was no office story with a billionaire and was about a marriage of convenience, one of my favorite trope in historical’s, i decided to give it a try.
I was graced an advance review copy by Netgalley and the publisher Kensington Books, but here is my true and real opinion.
It is incredible how much hurt people can cause by not talking.
Louisa Fairchild, Lou, had quite a beginning in life, I thought her hars

4.5 stars.
“The Trouble with Cowboy Weddings” is another brilliant novel novel by Nicole Helm, a stunningly moving story about friends turning into lovers, with all its problems, doubts, uncertainties and fears. Great dialogue, characters and lots of showing!
Gavin Tyler is this apparently ordinary guy who shows a deep-rooted loyalty and devotion for the heroine; the dimensions of his huge, secret crush are ever so slowly revealed. S

The Trouble with Cowboy Weddings is the fifth book in the A Mile High Romance series. It tells the story of Gavin Tyler and Louisa "Lou" Fairchild. They have been friends for many years, but they have reached a point in their lives where they need to help out each other. They decide to have a pretend relationship in order for her to keep control of her farm and for him to finally be in charge of one and not be in the shadow of his older brother. Should be easy for them since they've known each o ...more

I will mention up front that I have not read the entire A Mile High Romance series (although I have purchased the first one to begin to catch up), and I was not the least bit lost with THE TROUBLE WITH COWBOY WEDDINGS. Anything I really needed to know from the previous books was explained or mentioned within the narrative or dialogue so this felt like a book that “could” stand on its own if needed.

Louisa or “Lou” and Gavin have been friends since forever. If Gavin mig

The Mile High Series has such wonderful characters. This book is about Gavin Tyler and Lou Fairchild, best friends since they were 9. Gavin is the second son and has always felt second best.

But having good memories of his father and still having his mother and siblings, makes him much more fortunate than others. On of thos

This is a romance set on a ranch but there’s not a lot of cowboying- just a lot of references to living in the countryside and possibly raising cattle. My challenge with probably appreciating this book as much as I could have, is that this is Book 5 in this author’s Mile High series and I haven’t read any of the previous four books. Whilst I was able to read this as a stand-alone, I feel like I was missing a lot of the context, family drama and back story that would have made this book read as d ...more

I was fortunate enough to receive an advanced copy of this & happy to share an honest review. It’s not a secret that I enjoy Nicole’s work. I’ve read a majority of Nicole’s books & while there are a wide variety of great ones with the utmost believable characters as usual, this may be possibly one of her strongest female characters ever written. She has such a deep sad personal history how she’s come to live in her grandparents ranch (secrets reveled) that also serves as her flower farm ...more

It doesn’t always happen, but oftentimes this author is able to give her characters so much chemistry long before they even touch. I love that!

Gavin and Lou have been in the last couple of books in the Mile High Romance series, and I was sure the author would bring them together in a wonderful way. She did. But I didn’t realize just how deep their scars run so this story was quite a bit more serious than I had thought it would be. Don’t worry, there’s still a lot of fun and family, too. One thin

As the middle Tyler brother, Gavin doesn’t always have much say in ranch decisions, but when it comes to his heart, he’s the only authority. He’s loved Louisa “Lou” Fairchild for longer than he can remember, even though they’ve never been more than friends. But with Lou stuck between the proverbial rock and hard place, Gavin is going to help the way any true friend would—with a proposal of a strictly business-like, in-name-only marriage . . . at least to start. Lou can’t believe her beloved gran ...more

The Trouble With Cowboy Weddings by Nicole Helm is number 6 in the Mile High Romance series and is serious romance. This is serious romance. Lou and Gavin have been friends forever but Gavin, especially, wants more but he doesn't think her deserves it. Lou has more serious problems: she was in a fire last year and the right side of her face and upper body were burned and she sees that as an impediment to any relationship. Gavin lives on the ranch next door and come to help Lou rebuild every day. ...more

If they had talked....well, but they didn't. At least not really about the things that count. Even despite that though, Lou and Gavin muddle along towards a wedding. A very practical one at that, of course, because, well, you know - talking is overrated, at least for people who are guided by insecurities and the fear to open up and get hurt. Again. With the meddling help of their family and their wedding date getting closer and closer, Lou and Gavin have to decide whether they want to hide forev ...more

What a surprise to see The Trouble with Cowboy Weddings by Nicole Helm as another installment in the Mile High Series. I was also thrilled to see that Gavin would get his story What a story it is too. Gavin has many of the middle child issues that are commonly known. He is a rancher who technically does not have a ranch; is neither the oldest nor the youngest. However, they are nothing compared to Lou Fairchild’s life struggles.

This is one of my favorite situations being a “friends to lovers” st

So as many readers have I am sure at on point or another you have read a book on marriage of convince, this book has the feel one hundred percent. However the way the author had it played out it just never felt that way. I really found the story was really cute and had a fun feel to it. I really like Gavin he showed he was the strong silence type but also had a soft side. I loved Lou she was such a spitfire and no matter what she face she fought hard but loved even harder.

This is a voluntary review of an advanced copy.

I have not read any of the books in this series but was able to follow the storyline and previous events pretty well. I think it would have been more enjoyable to have read previous books but not necessary.

Lou was pretty prickly and hard to like at first, but you felt for her as she was dealing with scars both physical and emotional from an attack that had her trapped in a burning barn. Gavin had always loved Lou but never told her and she just does

A truly sweet country romance. Gavin and Louisa (Lou) grew up in neighbouring ranches and were best friends. Lou wants the family ranch and Gavin wants to manage it; Grandma says Lou needs to be married. Sneaky old woman was subtly matchmaking while keeping the land in the family. In a short time Lou and Gavin realized they really have what it takes for a loving marriage, not just a convenient marriage. It may have taken twenty years but their love finally bloomed. The Tyler family has tough lad ...more

At first absurd offer turns in pretend dating. Gavin soon realizes the depth of his feelings toward Lou and is scared because he is full of doubt of himself. Will they marry or not? I loved this book full of family drama, and love. Another great enjoyable read.

An incredible Book about love and trust. Nicole Helm hit a jackpot with this book. Louisa "Lou" Fairchild always covered the scarring from her burns on her face, shoulder, and arm even from her best friend Gavin Tyler.
Gavin always felt like he didn't belong not at his family's ranch because that was now his brothers.
When Lou found out that their ranch was in trouble she enlisted Gavin to "marry" in name only so he could run the ranch and she could keep her flower farm. The lessons they both lear

I feel as though I’ve done this series an injustice, as I’ve only read book four, and would probably appreciate the world building and background if I’d read it from the start; I couldn’t help feeling like I was missing certain things along the way regarding the family drama. Also, this story is supposed to be in a ranch setting, and I mistakenly expected more Cowboy references than mere country ones. For the most part it was an enjoyable read, but not up to Ms Helm’s usual standards.

ARC The romance and setting of this book will appeal to readers of Carolyn Brown. The physically flawed female character was refreshing as was her self-consciousness, a real character that women can connect with. On the other hand the fake marriage or the farm is going to the deadbeat dad thing was adding too many round about issues for my taste and drew away from the characters. The secondary Grandma characters added some fun humor.

A beautiful story about two people dealing with insecurities and scars. Sometimes internal scars are worse than the ones that other people can see. Gavin and Lou were endearing characters. This talented author brought these characters to life through her vivid and thought provoking storytelling. I also loved catching up with characters from the previous books. I can't wait to read what this talented author writes next.

Loved this book and fell in love with the characters as well as Gracely Colorado. In fact I loved it so much I read it in a couple hours and can’t wait to go back and start at the beginning of the series. What I most enjoyed about this was that it had a little twist on the typical romance, it wasn’t a woman finding she “needed” the man it was a woman finding the strength in a man to aim for what she wanted and giving him the strength to aim for the future he dreamed of.

I've been looking forward to Gavin and Lou's story!!

Best friends for 20 years, Gavin and Lou have been through a lot together. When Lou faces losing her family's ranch, they decide to get "engaged". Their fake engagement starts to feel all too real.

This is such a great story!! Very emotional with a lot of Tyler family sweetness.

This was another great addition to this series. I feel like Gavin and Lou's story was definitely a long time coming but it was well worth the wait. This is a very emotional yet fun friends to marriage of convenience story but the feelings have been there all along just itching to finally be let free. Gavin jumps at the chance to save Lou but will this "fake" marriage ever turn real? Can their friendship survive this new road they are going down? Very enjoyable story!

I always enjoy Nicole Helm's romance novels.
Gavin has been in love with Lou for years. I thought that was a really cute part of this book. It takes Lou a minute to realize her feelings for him are just as strong but when she gets there it's all-or-nothing.
