Cheyenne and Cooper’s love story in To Tame a Texas Cowboy by Julie Benson, book three in her Wishing, Texas series is emotional and enjoyable.
Cheyenne Whitten was forced to return home to Wishing, Texas after a medical condition forced her to leave barrel racing and the rodeo circuit. But being home with her over-protective mother is stressing her out. Needing to move out and regain her independence, Cheyenne decides getting a service dog is her answer; but the waiting list could take up to five years.
Cooper Abbott lose his fiancée two years ago and all he wants now is to rebuild his life and run his veterinarian clinic; living a calm, stable life. When Cheyenne learns that Cooper might be able to help her, she rushes off to find him. Cooper is gobsmacked by this gorgeous, spirited, redhead and is unable to refuse her. As it happens, Cooper had just picked up a shelter dog to test for trainability, Penny Lane, who attached herself to Cheyenne and responded to her cues. Cooper not only offers to help Cheyenne, but gives her a place to live, away from her mom, and a job. Of course, both insist that neither want a relationship as Cheyenne is focused on her health and returning to the rodeo and Cooper’s heart is still healing. However, the chemistry between them isn’t listening, as it is off the charts, pulling them together. Or maybe that’s the magnetism between them. It seems they are perfect for each other, fulfilling the other’s needs. Of course the magical wishing well in Wishing, Texas could have played a part in this love story.
Ms. Benson wrote a wonderful and emotional story that is definitely not to be missed. She provided a tale rich with sexual chemistry, amusing banter, and endearing character giving Cheyenne and Cooper a chance to find loved and a future together. I highly recommend To Tame a Texas Cowboy to other readers.
