Title: Cowboy Up
Series: The Coming Home Series, Book Three
Author: Harper Sloan
Genre: Contemporary Romance
As the eldest Davis, Clayton has always tried to lead by example. He takes his job as head of the family businesses seriously, making sure the farm and auto shop are running smoothly—along with keeping an eye on his brother and sister. For him, there’s a time and place to let go of the control he holds with an iron grip. And with the way he grew up, coupled with a disastrous end to his last relationship, he’s just fine with his quiet, solitary life. Most of the time.
What he hadn't counted on was the cute, quirky, shy bookstore owner, Caroline Michaels. She's the proverbial woman next door—well, the next town over, that is. Caroline hasn't lived an easy life, but after escaping a verbally abusive ex, she's finally living it for herself. The last thing she ever expected was a one-night stand with Clay Davis she can’t stop thinking about.
So when she falls on hard times and Clay comes out of nowhere to her rescue, she realizes just how impossible it’ll be to stay away from him. Now all she has to do is convince him to live a little….
Will Clay be able to give up the reins and finally settle down? And, more importantly, will Caroline muster enough courage to lasso him up?
I'm going to be very honest here and say I wasn't really excited about this book. But I was looking forward to it. I have had mixed feelings on this series. But I wanted to finish this series and read Clay's story. Now that I have finished this book I almost wish Mrs. Sloan had started this series with this book.
I thought that Clay and Caroline's characters were very likable. I will say this their relationship was a bit predictable at the beginning. But it was still enjoyable to read.
I thought Clay was sweet, kind, caring and all around swoon worthy throughout the book.
Caroline, sweet Caroline was just that sweet. At first I was worried she was a bit of a pushover. But definitely found by the end she wasn't.
As I said above this book was enjoyable. And I thought definitely was a good book for this series. But as I also said above I wish this book had been the first book in this series so I could have enjoyed this series so much better.
I'm giving this book 4 Stars out of 5!!!!
