|I must say that this book just had me, and at times I was not expecting the turns the author took with the characters. I like them because they felt real even though this was just a book. Carly and Austin live in a very small town in New Mexico, they have been in love with each other since kindergarten and since high school, Carly along with everyone else in town is just waiting for Austin to set a date for the wedding. There is just one problem he will not stop being on the rodeo circuit. Now he comes home and she thinks that this it, she’s 29 and they are finally going to settle down the ranch, raise stock. No, in the morning he tells her one more year, tells him no more years she is done she is tired of being number two. The rodeo always is number one and for the ten years, all she hears is one more year. She’s out goodbye! Have a nice life. Later she buys a motorcycle which comes into play after weeks of listening to the town’s people and she goes off and spends a few nights in Albuquerque. Comes back and she still won’t talk to Austin. People this is where I am out because the story takes off in a whole different space I was not expecting. All good, the characters evolve and you even meet Austin’s brother. For me though Carly and her grandparent’s make this story. I liked all of the characters but I am partial to those. A very good book and a wonderful story. I received this book from Netgalley.com and gave it 5 stars. Follow us www.1rad-readerreviews.com|
The Last True Cowboy (Chestnut Creek #1)
THE LAST TRUE COWBOY LAURA DRAKE
Carly Beauchamp has loved cowboy Austin Davis since first grade. Ask anyone in their dusty, backwater New Mexico town of Unforgiven, and they'll say "Carly and Austin" the way some say "big trucks and country boys." But after years of waiting for a wedding ring, Carly's done with being a rodeo widow . . .
Austin never meant to put his career on the circuit before Carly. She's always been his future, his one and only. But now that she's moved on, he's beginning to see where he went wrong, and he'll do anything to win her back. The only thing is, Carly's suddenly acting differently, and she's definitely hiding a secret-one that will test the depth of their love and open up a whole new world of possibilities.
