[Kame's Review]: "Nothing Like a Cowboy"

Nothing Like a Cowboy by Donna Alward
Publisher: Samhain Publishing, Ltd. (June 23, 2015)
Series:, 1
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Getting back in the saddle has never felt so good...

A Story

Brett Harrison tried marriage once and isn't anxious for another round. So when his meddling twin sister sets him up on a dating site, he seriously considers strangling her and cancelling. Luckily for him, he's too much of a gentleman to act on those impulses, and when he meets Melly Walker, he wonders if it's time to get back in the saddle.

Melly knows exactly where her previous marriage went wrong. She was dazzled by her ex's big-city charm and strayed too far from her roots. This time, she's going with tried and true--a dyed-in-the-wool cowboy. Her first few dates net her more duds than studs, but when she meets Brett, she's ready to get more than just her feet wet.

The principles of trust and compromise are great in theory, but when Melly discovers Brett has his eye on more than just her curves, she questions her judgment and his motives. Is Brett ready to drop his dreams for something as unreliable as love?

Warning: Contains virtual hat-tipping, real-time kissing and sexy times. Yee haw!

Kame's Review:

Brett’s twin sister has decided he needs to get back into the game, the dating game. She created an account on an online dating site and even set up the first date without telling him.  Now Brett feels he must go meet Melly for coffee as standing up a woman is not the right thing to do.

Brett, I like him a lot.  I actually have a little spot in my heart for any characters who are twins; especially boy/girl twins. He was hurt by his former wife and he is determined to get his life on the track he has always planned. Melly had her own issues she was trying to move past and the circumstances of her failed marriage were rather vague. She started out a strong woman who wanted to change her path, but had moments in the story where I wanted to pinch her. I was so happy that Brett actually told her everything in my head. I enjoyed how they got to know each other. This book is mild on the steam level, but enjoyable.

This novella gave me the feeling it is set in an already existing Donna Alward series.  Nothing too confusing but just a few things I felt I was missing.  I would definitely read another book by this author – and actually I already have one on my Kindle waiting.
