The book starts out simply enough with Jarod McElroy walking into the local and only Honky Tonk in the area to get a drink and if truth be told to get away from his cantankerous uncle ...more

Brown does a good job with the character development and the sexual tension. She manages to produce an authentic feel to the story with her descriptions of the Honky Tonk (complete with specific country and western songs, lyrics and artis ...more
In the meantime a host of quirky and stereotypical characters are introduced, including 'roundheel' Chigger, with her heart of gold and the heart of a local ranche ...more
As a romance, the book is sweet. It's a cute story. Normally I'd give it 4 stars. The reason I'm docking the book, is because it doesn't deliver what it promises in the blurb. When I go into re ...more
I love this book! I adore a good cowboy romance and this was a good one! It had me laughing and crying...I went through a whole range of emotions.
I completely fell in love with these characters. They were a great "down home" bunch and I must say that I thought Chigger was great. She made me laugh out loud everytime her character came up.
If you enjoy a good country romance then this is one to check out. I am really looking forward to the next one in this series Hell, Yeah....I think it's going to ...more
I've been past the Smokestack restaurant and kept thinking it was out in the middle of nowhere, and if Thurber has a population of 5, then it is pretty much nowhere. I do find it unlikely that there are "woods" out back of anywhere in that area... but there might be a cluster of mesquites, I guess.
The writing was hard to follow. Narration jumped around too much. The names were hard to keep straight at the beginning, since a lot of them end in "Bob". The description (mainly the last sentence) is really misleading. There was very little "action" in their romance.
I was disappointed and won't read the rest of the series.
The two main characters, Daisy and Jarod started off being hesitant about their feelings. I think the tension that was created between the characters felt unreasonable and not genuine reasons to keep people apart. The syntax was incredibly difficult to follow. The conversation jumped around constantly. The multiple people with the middle name bob became slightly obnoxious whenever ...more
Ms. Brown just tickled my funny bone with this book. Except for some scenes with Uncle Everett, I laughed almost all the way through the story! Ms. Brown, you are an absolute wonder and a marvel. Are you and Daisy kin any where down the way?
Jarod McElroy moved down to Texas to care for his Uncle Emmett and help him with his ranch. When Jarod walked into the Honky Tonk, he was just looking for a place to hang out for a while. He did not realize the woman of his dreams would fall into his lap.
Daisy literally falls for Jarod. Now all Jarod can think about is Daisy and finding a w ...more
I think I am glutton for punishment because I want to like these books much more than I am but I can't put them down (or close the file in this case) in hopes that something redeeming will happen. I have noticed with this author that continuity seems to be an issue. Are the boots already off or aren't they. It's only a paragraph apart so why isn't that little thing caught. And does every man she has ever met use a fist to move the lady's chin? Not even a gentle index finger ...more
