OK,this was one of those books where the couple was so-o-o annoying and immature that you didn't really care if it ended happily ever after. This couple's conflict had the maturity level of 3rd graders and was boring and repetitive. And Lonny's epiphany halfway through the book that he was in love with Joy simply strained credibility!! Ms. Macomber has written MUCH better books.....

Joy is a city girl who goes to live in a little town. Two years ago she dated Lonny, a former rodeo cowboy but they didn't connect. Now they have a passive-aggressive relationship that is due to their unfinished business, that is, the spark is still alive. And this is the starting point for lots of unbelievable silly misunderstandings.
Main characters bring stupid to a new level. He is delusional, he is the on who decides that he must love her because he hates her. And she gets angry because, on

Sorry to say I wasn’t impressed by this book. Waaaaay too sickeningly sweet with the picture perfect people and their proper, ultra friendly (to the point of sounding ridiculously fake) dialogue. I just couldn’t get into this. The entire premise and delivery felt forced and unrealistic.

The hero and heroine were completely unbelievable, and had nothing in common. Seriously, these two shouldn’t have even ended up together. And Lonny (hero) went on and on about the car “incident” for a full five c

The Wyoming Kid

The Wyoming Kid is a simple romance that could take place in any small town. The western part is on the periphery and I wonder why it is played up in the title. I guess someone in a romance story has to be obtuse to add a little tension. Much too often it is the woman who has to be the idiot. In this story both the man and the woman are downright relationship-stupid. Predictably, the woman is slower to come to her senses, so needs to be guided by her clueless man. Interesting stor

Feel good story

Sometimes you just need a good feel good romance to read. This one fits the bill. Predictable plot - boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl back. But the relatable and likable characters with the happy ending provide the perfect escape from the stress of life. I'm thankful for authors who can create an enjoyable story like this.

I loved this sweet cowboy romance. Easy and light reading. A great dessert of a read. I enjoy Debbie Macomber for the most part. This one was very good and everything I look for when reading a romance.

I love all of the of the stories Debbie has penned

I have yet to read a book by Debbie that was less than a five (5) some were tens.
All I can say is read it yourself you will love it. Debbie is just that good.
My daughter's and friends now read everything she has written.

I struggled to like the two main characters. Their bickering just did not do it for me. Also having dated 2 years earlier and then breaking it off did not seem realistic. Glad I finished it, but not that impressed.

The Kids

There comes a time in ones life you meet someone and your very much a like. That is how the main characters were in this book. In the end they came together.Read and see if you think they will make a life together? I say yes!

Formula is a little thin

Okay, we know all her books follow a pattern so rely on good characters and dialogue to keep us interested. This book missed on both of these.

Margaret A Driscoll
Always fun.

Debbie Macomber always produces the best of escape to romance novels. They may not be classics, but they are always so much fun.
Martha Bratton
3 stars because I did finish it and was amused. It's pretty predictable and Hallmark-Channel-ish. But sometimes that's fine.
Marissa Crawford
I knew going in to it that this book would be overloaded with cheese. And, it was. The reason for only 2 stars is that the book is just not believable. It's like the 2 main characters just woke up and decided they loved each other. Their personalities weren't really explored so I don't understand why these two people think they would be a good match.

I've been reading spicy and erotic romance for so long that it threw me to read a plain vanilla story.

I was not very fond of the characters; I thought the author's use of exposition stunk, and there was no suspense element or villainy to make the plot sparkle.

The way the characters were shown, I could not figure out what either of them saw in the other. It seems each was seeking an ideal of a small-town, family values spouse, and superimposed that ideal upon the other. I'd hate to be around when

In Macomber’s romance novel, former rodeo cowboy Lonny Ellison is accustomed to women throwing themselves at him. But there’s one woman who doesn’t seem to even know he’s alive—Joy Fuller. When they do speak, it’s quick to escalate to an argument that never ends well. Lonny’s sister, Letty believes they like each other but aren’t willing to admit it leaving Lonny to wonder if maybe, just maybe, Joy might consider a life with him after all.

A story that will leave you believing that opposites attr

Debbie Macomber's work is like comfort food. Sweet, enjoyable, know-what-you're-getting goodness. However, I was really disappointed in this story's hero. The hero and heroine had a love-hate relationship, but the hero was too ornery and ignorant for my taste. That said, I ADORED the heroine. I was cheering for her and her "city slicker" boyfriend so badly, lol. One of the rare cases where I liked the second love interest better than the first.

Nice story between rancher Lonny Ellison and teacher Joy Fuller who fuss at each other in the town of Red Springs, Wyoming. A sweet read in a plain, honest, small town setting... Not quite sure how Lonny Ellison suddenly goes from being angry at Joy to paying attention to her and deciding that he actually loves her. Then Joy seems to enjoy the kissing but the way she realizes that she is falling for him is not clear until the very end... she is certainly muddy about her own feelings.
