[Kame's Review]: "One Night with a Cowboy"

One Night with a Cowboy by Elizabeth Otto
Publisher: Entangled: Indulgence (May 12, 2014)
Series: Paint River Ranch, 2
Genre: Contemporary Romance

One night is never enough...

Jobless, broke, and struggling to support herself and her invalid mother, paramedic Sophie Miller doesn’t have time or energy for a relationship. Especially with her mother’s clock ticking down. So when the sexy cowboy she meets at a carnival proposes a no-strings, one-night stand, she’s all over it. Until her one-night stand shows up again and turns out to be everything she’s ever wanted.

Tucker Haywood has his hands full running Paint River Ranch and trying to deal with all the changes pulling the rug out from under him. His past has taught him it’s better to keep women at arm’s length, for their sake. Stubborn and temperamental, Tucker doesn’t have a clue how to deal with a city girl who’s scared of squirrels and dirt.

So when Sophie gets under his skin, he has to do whatever it takes to push her away. Even if it means losing the part of himself he never thought he’d find.

Kame's Review:

Sophia has come to Montana to help take care of her mother. She is trying to enjoy a day at the carnival with her nephew when she spots him. Tucker is at the carnival doing business but this woman has caught his eye.

I truly liked Sophia. She had a rather eclectic list of skills. Tucker is the classic never good enough for anyone hero. He seems to take care of many people but feels he is not good enough for anyone. This is the second book in a series; and I wonder if some of his character development is in book 1 - I just didn't feel as connected to him as Sophia.

The plot on this book was all over the place. There are issues with Sophia's sister, her mom's health; issues with Tucker's Mom; Sophia has some personal issues; and then there are the issues between the couple. Some of them are done well, some seem to be just page filler to me, but the good outweighed the bad.

In the end it was a good read; a definite beach read - something entertaining but easy to put down when you want to walk the beach or take a swim. I would try another book by this author and will look out for the next in this series.

I appreciate your points about the story. Sometimes reading all the books makes a difference in how a character is revealed and some times it doesn't like for the hero in this one. I've actually liked a character better b/c I didn't know them in the previous book, but I admit that I read a book recently where the character was likeable in the first book, but less likeable in the second book. I guess it just depends on mood and the way they are written. Love that my namesake was a strong character for you. ;)
