This is the second book and though I did not read the first one the author does a good job in setting you up in the story. You are given all of the characters and the backstories. How they met with. Jill and Kim came to Colorado from Kentucky for a two-week vacation. Kim ended up staying and Jill went back home to Kentucky when Mack Montgomery who had started a two-week affair with Kim walks away from her and says things to her that hurt her.
Now months later Jill is marrying Thad and of course

I had not read the first book in this series ("Roses & Rawhide"), so I quickly read it before starting "The Cowboy's Secret Baby". In the first book, Jillie & Mack fall madly in love and announce they are going to get married - even though they've only known each other for two weeks. But at the end of the book they go their separate ways without any explanations.

In the beginning of this second book, Jillie and Mack are reunited at the wedding of their best friends, Kim & Thad. It is ext

This was my first time reading something by this author. This was an enjoyable read. The story was well-written and flowed nicely. The plot was interesting and had some plot twists and turns that made this an interesting and intriguing story. The characters were strong and well-developed. The author did a nice job of bringing this story to life with her vivid descriptions and well-developed scenes. I enjoyed this book and am looking forward to reading more by this author.

The story of Jillie Abernathy & Mack Montgomery. As the title indicates there is a secret baby, but that isn't the only secret in this book. Both characters are stubborn and headstrong. At times frustratingly so! I had not read the prior books in the series, but was able to follow along with the prior characters and story. The book was somewhat predictable, but I did enjoy the story!

I received an ARC from the publisher via NetGalley for my open, honest review.

A complication of misunderstandings and secrets continues in this love story which started in the previous book. I hated how he left things in the previous book and though I thought she should tell him, I almost really didn’t want it to happen. I liked how the author took this couple on an emotional roller coaster ride. Good story

The third book in the Colorado Dreamin' series and the long-requested sequel to Maddie James' first published novel, Roses & Rawhide. A well written story that kept me turning pages. This is Jillie Abernathy and Mack Montgomery's story that I enjoyed reading this story, I found it to be an emotional story. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. ...more

When Jillie and Mack end their two week camping trip with friends Kim and Thad they part ways and not on good terms. They had spent two weeks sharing sleeping bags and much more then he breaks her heart by telling her it was just a fling and it is over. When their friends wedding comes around they are part of the wedding and have no choice but be in each others company. Jillie has a secret to share with Mack and he has one to share with her. What will happen will all secrets are out?

Lucky this book can be read as a Stand-alone to get all the relationships. I really enjoyed the snappy dialogue but I loved the two characters Jillie and Mack. They dont have just sparks they are electric . They pop out the page.

Entertaining story, awesome setting, likeable characters. The H needed to settle down and realize who and what he wanted. The h was no doormat. Interesting inter-play between these two until they both realized that only honestly would work. It did...HEA.

This is the long-awaited story of what really happened between Mack & Jillie! Communication is not the strong suit of either character. He is hiding behind a ranch hand lifestyle and afraid to admit his fears. She is stubborn and afraid of being rejected again. Relationships never really work when there are secrets, even with their chemistry. Their well-meaning friends realize they are good together, and she just has to meddle. Add in miscommunication, now we have the story.

Thank you to NetGall

I read an ARC from NetGalley.com. I had not read Roses & Rawhide (but it is up next in my Kindle), so keep that in mind when reading my unbiased and voluntary review. This is the first book that I read by this author and read it easily as a stand alone, but now want to know what exactly happened on that pack trip that sparked two romances.

Jillie Abernathy and Mack Montgomery had only known each other for 2 weeks and believed that they were in love, so Mack pushing her away and telling her it was

I was excited to be given a copy of The Cowboy's Secret Baby to read. As I started to read I was immediately hooked in. The first chapter, I just ached for the way Mack treated Jillie. I like a good strong cowboy hero, and I liked how Mack was a responsible son and took charge when his father fell ill. However, I think he was a bit of a knucklehead when it came to dealing with Jillie and his feelings.

As I was reading this book, I started to have a Deja vu moment. I felt like I knew these charact

Jillie and Mack had two weeks of scorching romance but it ended when Mack pushed Jillie away. It broke Jillie's heart and she wasn't expecting to see him again until her best friend called her for her wedding. She has a secret of her own but she wasn't ready to share with anyone.
Mack had secrets of his own. He may seem like cowboy in the outside, he is a billionaire oil tycoon. Last summer, he met Jillie and they shared two fantastic time together but he pushed her away and he knows he broke he

Lots of secrets. Misconceptions and stubbornness get in the way of communication. When a simple conversation could clear up their situation, instead the words continued to be unspoken. Sweet and heartwarming story. Thank to the publisher for providing a copy via NetGalley.

This is your typical romance. They fall in love, they fall out of love, they fall back in love again. I loved it. I hadn't read book one in the series but it didn't matter. It was a great standalone with a happy ever after. Could have done with a bit more editing but all in all a good read. ...more
