MUST LOVE COWBOYS

MUST LOVE COWBOYSCHERYL BROOKS

Shy computer specialist and amateur chef Tina Hayes travels to Circle Bar K ranch to scatter her father’s ashes in the Tetons of Wyoming. Once there, her father’s old army buddy and his cast of cowboy ranch hands persuade her to stay on as the ranch’s cook for a while. It’s not a hard decision, especially when she meets Wyatt McCabe, a man who makes her heart gallop like no one else. But with so many cowboys to choose from, can Wyatt show Tina that he’s the only one for her?

MY REVIEW:
     Tina Hayes was asked by her grandfather via his will to spread his ashes in the Tetons.  Then she was to bring some boxes to his old Army buddy Calvin Douglas.  They were in boot camp together and continued to active duty.  Calvin was a cook and her grandpa a combat soldier.  It was during Vietnam and Agent Orange, leaving a marking on her granddad that never ever went away.  Her grandma was pregnant with her mom when he left, an only child, they only lasted as a couple …

THE ONE THAT GOT AWAYA.J. PINE

How far will one man go for the woman he's loved since high school?

Jamie Kingston has been Brynn Chandler's best friend since middle school. Only once was their friendship tested—when Brynn gave Jamie a single kiss. Since then, they've had an unspoken agreement never to cross that line again, and she’s ready to let go of the past and move on.

But Jamie has loved Brynn for as long as he can remember, and now that he's ready to tell her, she has her sights set on someone else. Knowing this is his last chance, he asks Brynn to go on a two-week road trip. But their time alone brings old hurts to the surface, and Brynn has to decide if the one that got away lies at the end of the journey or if he's been by her side all along.

MY REVIEW:
     One kiss the week before graduation changed the course of this friendship, well not really.  Actually, Jamie Kingston didn’t want his longtime friendship to end the way his parents’ marriage did.  So the d…

THE SEAL'S SECOND CHANCEANNIE CALHOUN
The third in the Alpha Ops novella series that features an alpha Navy SEAL and the girl he thought he'd lost forever.

In high school, basketball star Charlotte Stannard and Navy SEAL Jamie Hawthorn were everything but lovers. They shared a ruthlessly competitive spirit and relentless drive, but Charlie, afraid of the consequences of an unplanned pregnancy at seventeen, drove Jamie away. But now Jamie's back in town for the banquet to honor the basketball coach, and finds Charlie, newly home from a successful career in the European leagues and coaching the girls' team. The flames between them are hotter than ever, but Charlie believes Jamie just wants what he couldn't have when they were kids. Jamie's not just playing to win. He's playing for Charlie's heart, forever.

MY REVIEW:
     This was a very interesting story of two athletes one male and one female.  From two different sides of the tracks.  Charlotte (Charlie) St…
