Recently, I have had the chance to read a lot of books by Leslie North, so I knew what to expect from this book. As it turns out I was wrong about a couple of things. For one, the hero was a good one and not a douche like I was expecting. He might have done some things I wasn't a fan of, but overall he was solid and he did everything because he thought that it would help the situation. I wasn't sure where I stood with the bride aka Bella. I think that overall I liked her and her character. She ...more

This is my first time reading this author, Leslie North's work and I completely loved it! This is the first book of the series, "Brothers of Cooper Ranch" and it was Sawyer and his Bella's story and what a story it was! These two have to go through turmoil and obstacles to be able to get to have their happily ever after <3 But at the end, they do and I loved every single moment of reading this story and I can't wait to read the next one from this series! :)

Bella and Cooper have blinders on and the only thing they see is business. Plans change when Bella gets amnesia from falling from a horse. She is surprised to learn that her father has cut her out of the family and that Cooper is her husband. How this happened is the story told but the characters just were not fleshed out for me. Quick read but disappointing. "A copy of this book was provided by Relay Publishing via Netgalley with no requirements for a review. Comments here are my honest ...more

The first book in a three book series. This one has Sawyer Cooper at a big city not in the country. He is working at drumming up support for a new business plan he has and he is getting nowhere. Meanwhile, Bella Whitmore not only has the name and business behind her, she just has a father that won’t let her run the family business. He thinks women should be in the kitchen not in the board room. During the night of fancy clothes and high-end drinks, and art. Bella and Sawyer flirt but nothing too ...more

Sawyer and Bella are kindred spirits looking for something to call their own. What they get is a battle as rugged as the terrain they seek to conquer and a love as raw as an undressed wound. Love has the power to break hearts, heal souls and bridge divides. The Cowboy's Forgetful Bride puts that theory to the test. Can newfound romance survive an unforseen obstacle? Guess we'll just have to wait and see. North deals readers another winning hand.

This was an enjoyable read. Bella had an accident and she didn't remember much. Comes to find out she and Sawyer were married. They spent the book trying to work together. I was a little disappointed by the ending. They were together but I hated how they wanted to start completely over instead of continuing from where they were.

I received this as an advanced reading copy.

The characters were interesting and had potential but I found it very difficult to get into. I felt as if the author was only writing the most important scenes so if felt like the pace was jerky and events happened to fast. It felt like it was missing character development and plot development scenes. Although there seemed to be more focus on the plot than on the characters.

For example, the beginning of the book: Opening scene. Straight on to amnesia

“The Cowboy’s Forgetful Bride” is the first story in Leslie North’s Brothers of Cooper Ranch series. It’s a fast-paced, short read that will definitely engage your emotions and provides some truly entertaining bantering between Bella and Sawyer.

It’s hard to imagine waking up one day with no memory of the past month. I try to put myself in a character’s situation to understand them better… and I simply cannot imagine the panic, the fear, the confusion of not knowing

So the story follows Sawyer and Bella. Sawyer is a hunky cowboy who has an amazing business idea. Bella is the daughter of a business mogul who is a complete jerk and doesn't fully appreciate Bella and her brains. He just wants her to be a dumb socialite and marry a man he can leave the company to one day. Things happen, but we don't get to see them because one minute Bella goes to bed and wakes up a month or so later and she is now married to Sawyer in

I received an ARC from the Author. I am giving my review completely voluntarily, because I love Leslie North novels.

The Cowboy's Forgetful Bride by Leslie North this is book 1 in The Brother's of Cooper Ranch series.
I enjoyed this first book in the series. Who doesn't like a really good looking hot cowboy that knows how to do it the right way?
Sawyer Cooper knows what he wants, he reinvented himself as a shark in the business world, but very few know that he’s actually a Cooper of the Country

3.5* ARC Review – Amnesia in Montana
I received the ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review. I have read a few books by this author and like her writing style that I find very easy to read. This book appears to be a new series for her and it might be interesting to see where it goes from there. If it is the Cooper brothers, we really have not met the others in this book so wondering how it might continue.
This is the story of Bella Whitmore, who beyond being a Boston socialite, works

When she finds out that they have been married to each other for over a month and that she's recovering from being thrown off a horse [she doesn't ride horses?] she feels very scared and confused. ...more

When she loses her memory, she ends up married to the one man she has been trying to avoid and her last memory is that of her father’s insulting her capabilities as a CEO and the fact that she is a woman. This memory is from a month earlier at an art show, when Sawyer defended her against her father. She has no recollection of how she ended up married and living ...more

I liked both Sawyer and Bella. I liked the way Sawyer stood up to Bella's father and defended her. There was definitely chemistry between the two of them that grew even after Bella's accident.

The story was pretty faced paced and interesting. The thing that bothered my is that I felt like I shared the holes in Bella's memory. We went from a mildly antagonistic relationship between Sawyer and Bella to them being married and Sawyer being in love with her. What?!

First book in a new series. Great romance. I loved it.

I loved their romance. I loved seeing them together, falling in love again.

I loved Sawyer, how he's always fought for what he wants. First for his life, for choosing what to do, and then for Bella. First he wanted to conquer her, then he wanted to be with her. And after he was about to lose her, he struggled to conquer her heart and make her a part of his life forever. I doesn't humiliate him that Bella has brilliant
