This cowboy plays to win
Rockford James was raised as a tried and true cowboy in a town crazy about ice hockey. Rock is as hot on the ice as he is on a horse, and the NHL snapped him up. Now, injuries have temporarily benched him. Body and pride wounded, he returns to his hometown ranch to find that a lot has changed. The one thing that hasn't? His feelings for high school sweetheart and girl-next-door Quinn Rivers.
Quinn had no choice but to get over Rock after he left. Teenaged and heartbroken, she had a rebound one night stand that ended in single motherhood. Now that Rock's back—and clamoring for a second chance—Quinn will do anything to avoid getting caught up in this oh-so-tempting cowboy…

A second chance love story that will charm you
I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley and I also purchased a copy.
Up happens when you make a decision when you are a teenager and it turns out to be a selfish one? That is what this book explores. Rockford James gave up the love of his love to explore his dream of the big life of hockey. Quinn turns the tables and has a one-night stand that ends up with an unexpected pregnancy. This is the story of two people meeting up again and overcoming the past while loving a beautiful little boy Max. This was a heart-warming story. There was a few inconsistencies that should have been caught in editing that threw me off. One was how Quinn's dad was to cheap to put in a dishwasher but then Quinn loads the said non-existent appliance with dishes. Also there were a few sentences where a word was missing and I would have to figure it out. A story like this one should have been edited better.
Second Chance Romance!!
Rock and Quinn's story is fun, sweet, sexy and infuriating but I loved it. I really enjoyed getting to know these characters. They were relatable and had real life problems to deal with. The love and caring Rock showed to Quinn and Max was beautiful and when Rock stood up to protect them, I swooned!! If you a second chance romance fan you will love this story!
Wonderful Second Chance Romance
Caught Up in a Cowboy (Cowboys of Creedence Book 1) by Jennie Marts. This is Rockford “Rock” James and Quinn Rivers’ story.
Rock and Quinn’s story was a wonderful and emotional ride. I fell in love with Rock and Quinn’s characters. The supporting characters were great too. Rock walked away years ago from Quinn and broke her heart. He is back home recovering from a hockey injury. Will Rock and Quinn be able to overcome the hurts from their past and find happiness?
I really enjoyed Rock and Quinn’s story and laughed and cried right along with them. There were times that I wanted to knock some sense into Rock and Quinn and tell them to tell each other how they felt! In the end they figured out what was most important to them. I loved the ending and look forward to reading the next book in this series.
FYI, contains mature content. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
