Zina and Alex are thrown together when her dog shelter is damaged forcing a relocation to the warehouse/farm where Alex is training penguins for an over-the-top wedding.

Both Zina and Alex are reluctant participants in the wedding shenanigans. Zina takes over wedding planning duties when her best friend, Lacey, the mayor of Ido, is ordered on bedrest. That coupled with having to move her rescue dogs over to the warehouse on the wedding property puts her in the thick of things.

Alex agrees to tak

Cute dogs who need rescued, penguins, a slightly grumpy hero, a small town! What more could you want to start your 2021 with?

Her Kind of Cowboy is the second book Dylann Crush's Tying the Knot in Texas. I really enjoyed the first book in the series and was so glad to be able to read the second one.

This one doesn't have as many of the townspeople in it but you get Lacey and Bodie. I really liked them for The Cowboy Says I Do so I was glad for the visit.

Zina Baxter have enough on her plate with her pit bull rescue shelter and even if she's not totally on board with her friend's plan; the new mayor, of transforming their little town into a wedding venue, she wouldn't hesitate to help her with the preparations, even as ludicrous those brides' ideas could be.

""Penguins." Alex rolled the word around on his tongue. "In Texas. For a wedding." Yeah, still sounded just as ridiculous as the first time the attorney on the other end of the phone said it o

Some people cross your path and change your whole direction..

I was hoping that we would get Zina's story and was thrilled that the second book would be about her. Mayor Lacey has landed the wedding of all weddings. The bride from L.A. wants a Winterland Celebration, in Texas of all places. To say that this is impossible is an understatement. And to top it off she wants Penguins headlining the ceremony.

Alex, world traveller is called in from the Antarctica to train and take care of the Penguins.

Only Dylann Crush could combine pit bulls and penguins, laugh-out-loud comedy and profound emotional depth, parrots and painted flowers, and zany small-town charm with heat, heart, and a HEA.

Reading this book was like putting together a (seriously entertaining) jigsaw puzzle-- I saw all the pieces, I knew they *had* to fit together (although I had no idea how!) and once I got started, I couldn't stop. I was already in love with the residents of Ido, and I felt like I was visiting with long-lost

A beautiful book. The story is about Alex Sanders, a man who has led an adventurous life. For now, Alex lives in Antarctica, where he enjoys his single status. One day, Alex receives a unique job opportunity, taking care of penguins in Texas for a wedding. Of course, Alex takes the opportunity to be in his home and thus see his family. Upon arriving in Texas, Alex visits his grandfather and sister to resume the relationship with them. After settling in and preparing his new workspace, Alex meets ...more

Her Kind of Cowboy by Dylann Crush is the second book in her Tying the Knot in Texas series. This is the first time I have read this author, and I am happy to say I really enjoyed this story. Her Kind of Cowboy was a fun read, but what is not to love about it; dogs and more dogs, even penguins, and hot couple who were steamy together.

Zina Baxter, our heroine, is Lacey Cherish’s best friend (previous book heroine), and owner of a dog shelter, as well as Lacey’s right hand in handling weddings fo

I loved getting to know Zina more and boy does she have the weight of the world on her shoulders and it doesn't help that her best friend Lacey is also trying to get her to find love just like she did. Alex is back home after leaving years ago, but it isn't soon enough for his overwhelmed sister becomes quiet the reality check for him on what he left behind. Now Zina and Alex have to work together for an extravagant wedding that leads to laughs, cute dogs, crazy family and friends, majestic peng ...more

I loved this book. With a storyline that was fresh, fun and flirty, Zina and Alex's romance captured my heart and gave me a major case of the feels. This clever blend of wedding craziness, adorable animals, small town charm and a colossal amount of heart are combined to create a couple you can root for, a romance you can believe in and a place you long to visit. Simply wonderful!! This is my independent, impartial review. ...more

I received an advanced copy of this book from the author as part of her street team.

Pit Bulls and Penguins - what else is there to say??? You definitely need to read this story so you can see how these two unlikely animals end up housed together in a warehouse in Texas. The animals aren’t the only unlikely pairing - Alex and Zina work together to pull off a very unusual dream wedding in Ido, Texas. Yeah, yeah, yeah - there are human characters, but the penguins and pit bulls are the big draw!!!

This was such a fun, crazy story! I never thought I'd be reading about penguins at a wedding but Dylan Crush made it all happen in her latest Tying the Know in Texas book, Her Kind of Cowboy. I love the whole idea. Add in heroine Zina Baxter's For Pitties' Sake pit bull rescue and there's lots of craziness to enjoy. I love Zina and Alex Sanders as a couple and enjoyed reading along for their HEA. Plus it was good to encounter Mayor Lacey and Deputy Sheriff Bodie Phillips again. ...more

When Zina's pit bull rescue ends up in jeopardy due to building issues, she takes refuge in what is supposed to be a vacant warehouse. However, she soon finds out that she will be splitting the warehouse for a little while with penguins. Apparently there's some bit wig millionaire who's daughter wants to have a wedding in Texas... with penguins. Needless to say, what ensues is a lot of chaos for everyone.

This was a cute romcom that deals with a lot of animals, two people over their heads, and a

Her Kind of Cowboy by Dylann Crush was not your run-of-the-mill cowboy romance. It involved penguins. Yes, penguins. Alex Sanders was in Antarctica, planning to get out soon: it was cold enough in summer and he wasn't interested in winter. He'd been working as part of a team working on a penguin breeding research project. That was pretty much all he knew about penguins, except for a summer job when he was a kid. Now there was some rich guy that wanted to hire someone to house and train some peng ...more

Her Kind of Cowboy was another fun addition to the Tying the Knot in Texas series. Zina was one of my favorite supporting characters in The Cowboy Says I Do and I was so happy to get to know her character better. Alex was the perfect addition to this crazy town. A self appointed wanderer of the world who doesn't want to be responsible for anyone but himself meets a woman who is devoted to her family, friends and strays and really doesn't know how to tell anyone no. These two opposites on the sur ...more

Her Kind of Cowboy was a good follow-up to the first book in the series. We're in Ido, Texas planning a winter wedding and following their foibles.
It kept me reading but there is often too much going on in her books. Between the penguins, the dog shelter, her and Alex planning the wedding, his sister and her family, his grandpa, her brother etc there wasn't one story or event to focus on.
There were also parts of the story that were completely forgotten about. I'm not sure what happened the inv

Penguins, puppies, love and laughter...a cute read you won't put down! Fate randomly pushes Alex and Zina together for an adventure they won't forget. While Zina rescues puppies, Alex wrangles penguins for a wedding because what bride doesn't want penguins to share the aisle with?! With some mystery about Zina's shelter and laughs about how to actually train penguins this book will have you hooked to their story! The perfect read to take you mind to a small town for some laughs and love! ...more

Crush has brought together just the right amount of crazy in her latest novel and it 100% works. Alex and Zina are a fun slow burn couple, but it is the cast of supporting characters, including the puppies and the penguins, that truly make this novel shine. Perfect for fans of Sarah Morganthaler and Jenny Holiday.

This is the second book in the series was a fast read. Zina is trying to get a specialized wedding off the ground and hopes with the help of alex they can get it done I think if my kid wanted penguins at her wedding in a hot place I would have to put my foot down and my wallet away!! It was fun reading how they dealt with the situation. Enjoyed the humor of this book

Alex doesn't stay in one place too long, but he is forced to go back home, last place, he wants to go.
Zina is trying to run shelter for dogs, finding them homes is hard, especially when she finds more puppies.
Alex and Zina have to work together. She is the reason, Alex is thinking about staying in one place forever.
Loved the storyline, humor.
