[Kame's Review]: "A Family for the Bull Rider"

A Family for the Bull Rider by Tina Leonard
Genre: Contemporary Romance -- Category

Jack Morgan came home to the Morgans’ Texas ranch on urgent family business—not to get roped into marriage. But he’s finding it impossible to steer clear of his attraction to angelic Cricket Jasper. Now the virtuous deacon is pregnant…with triplets!

The sexy rodeo rider has always been in Cricket’s secret prayers. But she never dreamed she’d be having Jack’s babies! She knows the firstborn Morgan son came home to make things right with his estranged father. Now he’s about to become a father.

What will it take to make a family man out of this wandering rover? Because if three babies and the love of a good woman aren’t enough to settle down this lonesome cowboy, nothing will be!

Kame's Review:

3 Stars as fans of the Morgan family might appreciate

Cricket and Jake barely know each other when they share a night in front of the fire. Jake hoped to see her again, but never imagined he would get a family.

I was sooo excited for this book as I have become fascinated with rodeo and bull riding. I immediately requested all books in this bull riding special series from Harlequin and even though I had plenty of other books on my TBR pile I dove right in. I wish I hadn’t. It was sort of like when you see this fancy dessert you are sure will taste amazing and you realize when you take a bite that it is just a waste of calories. 

I stayed up to finish this book - not because it was that good but I needed to get it done as I was getting annoyed with the plot and characters. This book was nothing more than a wrap up of a series. There was barely any character development for Cricket and Jake. I didn't really like either of them - my goodness I am not sure there is one character I liked in the book. How Cricket treated Jake was deplorable and she is not worthy of being a deacon as far as I am concerned. By the end of the book I did start to enjoy Jake’s character and I felt a scene in the hospital when he finally stands up to Cricket was the best in the book.

However the plot was weak for me, it lacked any detail. Jake’s father’s plan on bribing his son’s into being family men bothered me, and I am happy I didn’t read the other books about this family as I am not sure I could tolerate that plot for four books.

There are three other books in Harlequin’s special bull riding series. I have them all to review, and since they are all by the same author I am hoping the next has better character development and a plot I can really wrap my arms around.

Ah bummer! I've been right there with you on a book disappointing me all around. I do the same thing to just get it over with too even if it means staying up. On to the next and hope its a better bit of development and a more likeable heroine.
