The Cowboy Wins A Bride

THE COWBOY WINS A BRIDE                 CORA SETON
Posted: June 25, 2013



All Jamie Lassiter wants is to marry his best friend’s sister and settle down for the rest of his life in Chance Creek. He’s saved his money, bought into the Cruz Guest Ranch and he’s ready for that wedding, but Claire Cruz is nowhere to be found.

Claire’s too busy leaving Montana behind to care about cowboys or their wedding plans. She’s got plans of her own – a trip around the world. She’ll go as soon as she buys her tickets and she doesn’t care if she ever sees Chance Creek again.

Desperate to change Claire’s mind, Jamie proposes a bet: give him six weeks to convince her to marry him. If he can’t, he’ll pay for her round-the-world tickets himself.

Claire can wait six weeks if it means free tickets and a chance to get a little revenge on a man who once broke her heart. She’s got only one stipulation: Jamie can’t touch or flirt with her – or any other woman – while the bet is on.

Now Jamie’s on the run from a bevy of cowboy-groupie ranch guests, and Claire’s learning she cares about the ranch – and Jamie – more than she dreamed possible.

Maybe it’s time to lose that bet.

As long as Jamie loses it first.



MY REVIEW:


This was a fun is going story. All the characters were enjoyable and you could become fully invested in each of them for the most part. This story revolved for the most part Claire and Jamie and their relationship or non-relationship. These two characters grew up together on Claire's family ranch with her younger brother Ethan who Jamie is friends with. It turns out that Jamie did not have a good relationship with his own parents and spent a lot of time at their home until he finally just moved there and got a job there too. Claire's father even gave him the little cabin that was on the property since he loved the land, horses and ranch in general, her dad just loved him hanging around. All the time he was around Claire he loved everything about her they could talk and she loved the horses and the ranch as much as he did. So, he set his mind on one day marrying her by saving his money and planning for their future. With on minor glitch, he may have forgotten to tell Clair. He did however tell his other friends like Rob, Cab, Luke, etc... They just ended up playing cat and mouse. When Claire left home due to a fight she had with her mother never to return home except for short visits made Jamie question himself and where their future was headed. Yet, when Ethan was getting married and Clair came home to help out just months after her parent’s death (car accident) her life takes a terrible detour and a craziness she or I never saw coming and a lot of it was funny but most of the hidden meaning was sad. If you are a daughter you will feel her pain because we have all been there at least once. Mother and daughter relationship are questionable. There are some very unanswered questions that left me hanging that I did not like. Like what did happen to all the money from her parents account? Do they finally get married? Mainly where is the epilogue? I would give this book a 3.75 stars here is why... Claire's whining for one thing got to be monotonous, no epilogue, and I wanted more. LOL
