Review: One Tough Cowboy by Lora Leigh & Veronica Chadwick

39863375
The Cover: One Tough Cowboy‘s cover is simple and to the point: an attractive, male brooding cowboy looking off in the distance. A little too much on the nose for me but I like it and the simplicity of it. 

Basics: One Tough Cowboy was released on January 29th, 2019, published by St. Martin’s Paperbacks and is 304 pages long. Genre wise One Tough Cowboy belongs to contemporary romance, second chance romance and suspense. 

Description: LAW AND ORDER.For as long as Samantha can remember, Hunter—a man as strong as steel, with a heart of gold—has been her hero. It came as no surprise to Samantha when she found out that the ranch-hardened cowboy who always protected her from bullies went on to become the town’s sheriff. What does surprise her is how incredibly hot he still is. And how much she still wants him…

PRIDE AND PASSION. And, lo and behold, Hunter still has feelings for Samantha. The long-smoldering heat of their innocent flirtation has grown into a full-raging fire. But when tragedy strikes, and their small-town community is shattered, Hunter vows to do everything he can to keep his childhood sweetheart safe. But can Samantha trust that Hunter has her best interests at heart…and that, after all these years, his love is true?

Overall thoughts: One Tough Cowboy is a perfect example of a typical Lora Leigh book with new, touches from a new author I have never read before Veronica Chadwick. Leigh is one of the best romance authors in the romance book world, she weaves beautiful stories together and somehow adds other elements to her stories and characters that keep me very invested. 

A lot of contemporary romance books tend to focus just on the romance and relationships of the couple in the book, which is fine for myself and many other readers but that doesn’t always keep everyone interested. Don’t get me wrong I like to read about a couple falling for one another and everything in between that occurs but it can become repetitive and dull. Leigh shines mainly because she has the ability to not only include romance within her books but also keep her readers hanging off each page. 

One Tough Cowboy is the story of Sam Ryder and Hunter Steele, two people who met at the wrong place time, go their separate ways but years later reunite under different circumstances. Sam is older, more mature and settled, she had no clue that Hunter would be so attractive to her now considering he’s older and different than the old Hunter she used to know.  

When sudden deaths threaten the hometown they know and love they find themselves trying to solve the murders while also dealing with their reawakened attraction for one another. One Tough Cowboy by Lora Leigh and Veronica Chadwick is a great contemporary romance and suspense book that will leap off the page and right into your heart and bookshelf, One Tough Cowboy is a must read!

It’s an opportunity to visit and comment, and er… add to that ever growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone.

divider-3I am currently reading three books at the moment! I’m reading Not Just Another Rock Star Romance by Lisa Suzanne, One Tough Cowboy by Lora Leigh and Shadow of the Fox by Julie Kagawa! It’s been a couple of busy days because of Thanksgiving so I’m trying to play catch up! But without further ado here is the break down of everything I’ve been reading lately!

Blurb: I’ve never been able to say no to my manager, which is probably why my band instated the No Bang Oath. When she asks me to star on a new reality dating show right before we go on tour, the last thing I want to find is love. But since it was Kylie who asked, I say yes. Besides, I can’t turn down the exposure for my band.

As I forge connections with the women—including the show’s hostess—I can’t seem to shake Kylie out of my head. When I find myself at the center of a scandal, I don’t know what’s worse: the bad press or the disappointment in Kylie’s eyes.

How do I prove I’m not just another rock star before I hit the road with one of the biggest bands in the world?

Blurb: One thousand years ago, the great Kami Dragon was summoned to grant a single terrible wish—and the land of Iwagoto was plunged into an age of darkness and chaos. Now, for whoever holds the Scroll of a Thousand Prayers, a new wish will be granted. A new age is about to dawn.

Raised by monks in the isolated Silent Winds temple, Yumeko has trained all her life to hide her yokai nature. Half kitsune, half human, her skill with illusion is matched only by her penchant for mischief. Until the day her home is burned to the ground, her adoptive family is brutally slain and she is forced to flee for her life with the temple’s greatest treasure—one part of the ancient scroll.

There are many who would claim the dragon’s wish for their own. Kage Tatsumi, a mysterious samurai of the Shadow Clan, is one such hunter, under orders to retrieve the scroll…at any cost. Fate brings Kage and Yumeko together. With a promise to lead him to the scroll, an uneasy alliance is formed, offering Yumeko her best hope for survival. But he seeks what she has hidden away, and her deception could ultimately tear them both apart. With an army of demons at her heels and the unlikeliest of allies at her side, Yumeko’s secrets are more than a matter of life or death. They are the key to the fate of the world itself.

Release Date: Out now, published October 2nd 2018.
