REVIEW : The Truth About Cowboys by Lisa Renee Jones

I had my life figured out.

Engaged to a successful man.

About to make partner at my firm.

Bought a high-rise apartment in downtown Denver.

And then, poof, it’s all gone. Now, like in some cheesy romantic comedy, my car has broken down in the pouring rain on my way to “find myself” in The Middle of Nowhere, Texas. Cue hot guy coming to my rescue and changing my tire. This is the part where we flirt and have a meet-cute, right? That’s how it works in romance novels, and I should know—after all, I’m coming to Texas to write my own cowboy romance. But nope. This sexy cowboy lights into me about not being prepared for the country roads and how inappropriate my high-heeled boots are.

Little did I know, Michael Montgomery would tilt my world into a new dimension with his sinful smirk and his bad attitude. Every time I turn around, he’s there to reluctantly save the day. And every time, I think there may be something to that spark we ignite. But there’s a reason the majority of country songs are about broken hearts. The closer I get to this man, the closer I get to learning the truth about cowboys.

What’s a city girl doing on a country road in the middle of the night?


This isn’t my first read from the author, but it is differently from anything I’ve ever read from her and I LOVED it! A sexy cowboy, who is also a former pro baseball player? SIGN ME UP!

Jessica is a former divorce attorney who is running away after catching her fiancé cheating on her, which is how she ends up finding a little cottage in the middle of nowhere in Sweetwater, Texas. What she doesn’t expect to find is a former baseball player turned cowboy and his super amazing grammy. Jason is trying to save his parents ranch and making sure his granny is taken care of, so when he has a run in with Jessica his world is turned upside down.

I loved the banter between Jason and Jessica. They definitely got off on the wrong boot, but they more time they spent together they started to form a friendship. Jason was possessive of Jessica, he wanted to keep her away from the rest of the workers on the ranch, of course that was due past relationships. The chemistry between them was something that had to build for me. The more time they spent together the hotter their chemistry was.

Lets talk about Granny. She was amazing! She was a fighter. The love she had for her grandson, for the ranch and everyone involved was fantastic. I LOVE the bond she formed with Jessica. Those two literally became instant best friends.

If you love cowboy romances this is a MUST READ!
