This was my first cowboy romance book and also the first book I have read by Rebekah Weatherspoon. I thought it was a charming romance and I devoured it in one day. The main characters Evie and Zach are so cute and likable, so are the rest of the Pleasant gang. We all need a second family like them to swoop in and lift us up at times of hardship and trouble. Zach’s grandma Leona, the matriarch of the family was another great character, it was so sweet how much she loved and genuinely cared for ...more

Well, I read the teaser chapter 1 and I already adore Evie, and am excited for this book! Now I need the rest!

Ahhhhhhh, a good cowboy romance!

I'm highly anticipating this one.
Rebekah Weatherspoon starts off a new series with a charming (see what I did there?) cast of characters. I want everyone to get their own books: Blaire, Jesse, Sam, Lilah, Miss Leona, EVERYONE. The highlight of this first book for me was the female friendships that Evie had and the unconditional support she received from her friends--Weatherspoon is so good at creating community in her books.

However, there were a few things that didn't work for me here.
- Instead of the usual dual POVs of the

This one-chapter preview is a glimpse into this upcoming novel. I have not read the author before but I can see from this preview why her books are extremely popular. The characters and setting are intriguing. I am looking forward to reading the complete novel.


Thanks to Netgalley and Kensington for the advanced copy!

I had the pleasure of reading the first chapter of this book as an ARC in exchange for a review. This is going to be an amazing book, the first chapter had me mesmerized and I wanted to continue reading.

I really loved the excerpt - the first chapter really left we chomping at the bit to read the rest of the book!

Evie is a great character - someone you can instantly like and want to be best friends with! We haven’t met the hero yet - but I get the feeling he’s going to be epic. Especially if Evie’s been hung up on him for so long!
4.5 stars!

When I heard Rebekah Weatherspoon was coming out with a cowboy romance, I was all in. I didn't even need to read the blurb. I just knew that I needed to read it. The Cowboys of California series kicks off with a modern day amnesia story and second chance romance in A Cowboy to Remember.

You just have to figure out what Yvonne Buchanan 2.0 is going to be like. Reinvention. It's how great women get by.

Evie can't remember what happened, but she wakes up in a hospital bed not remembering

I requested this ARC because I've read almost all of Rebekah Weatherspoon's other books, and I think that for the most part, it's good stuff. A Cowboy to Remember, though, does not rank in the top tier of her works.

The story follows Evie Buchanon, a celebrity chef who loses her memory after an incident, and returns to the ranch she grew up on to recover out of the limelight.

The memory loss plotline really made the romance feel kind of icky to me. Evie reunites with high school crush Zach, but

Rebekah Weatherspoon’s A Cowboy to Remember is everything a good romance should be. With compelling protagonists, witty banter, and a whole lot of chemistry, first-time Weatherspoon readers and hard-core fans alike will be delighted by this novel. The best part? This is the first of a new series, and I already can’t wait to see what comes next.

After chef Evie Buchanan loses her memory after a terrible fall, she finds herself back in Charming, California in the presence of the man who once broke

I received an ARC of this book in return for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Evie is a celebrityety chef that grew up on a ranch. She was friends with three boys one of which she had major crush/hots for. It didn't end on good terms. Fast forward to now when Evie looses her memory and the guy from the past comes to her aid. He looks and feels like a cowboy superhero. I may have fallen in love with him upon first reading about him; He is so charming.

Thanks to NetGalley and Dafina for providing an eARC of this book!

This had a cute premise - Evie, a TV chef, is pushed down the stairs by a reality show rival and loses her memory. She then goes to her childhood home - now a Dude Ranch run by hot cowboy and childhood crush Zach Pleasant - to recover hear health and (hopefully) her memory.

If this premise sounds compelling, I think you'll like this one! All of the characters were sweet and the family and found family dynamics were lovely. I always

I didn't read the fine print and see that this was only one chapter so I'm a little disappointed. But it'a great start. Solid writing and characters that draw you in right away. I was intrigued based on the tidbits we got of Evie's backstory about how she was going to get back home to the cowboys. Then Weatherspoon hits with a helluva twist at the very end of the chapter.

I received a preview of A Cowboy to Remember from NetGalley.

This was so worth the wait, the first chapter captivated me and I was so mad I had to wait for the rest but it was so worth it!!!!! The slow burn longing, amazing chemistry between not only Evie and Zach, but the chemistry and love and history between Evie and the rest of the family on the ranch. I wouldve loved for Evie to cuss Chef Burns out and beat her ass but the ending was perfect I cant wait for the next book

Holy crap, this first chapter is a killer hook for the rest of the book. I can’t wait to finish it. I love basically everything Rebekah writes, and I already tell Evie’s story is going to be dramatic (yes please) and sweet (this girl is trying not to cry because Christmas carols remind her of her dearly departed nan).

Thank you to Rebekah Weatherspoon, NetGalley, and Kensington Books for the ARC. This is my honest review (of the first chapter).

It’s hard to gauge the feel of the whole book based on one chapter but I did like what I read and will read the complete book and update my review once released.
