Praise for Cowboy Fever:
“A delightful read full of heart and passion.” —Jodi Thomas, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Somewhere Along the Way
“HOT, HOT, HOT…with more twists and turns than a buckin’ bull at a world-class rodeo, lots of sizzlin’ sex, and characters so real, you’ll swear they live down the road!” —Carolyn Brown, bestselling author of Love Drunk Cowboy
“Joanne Kennedy has an uncanny way to bring characters to life with clever dialog, fun situations, and sexy cowboys all wrapped in one great story. Absolutely perfect!” —Fresh Fiction
Kennedy taps into the timeless, rugged appeal of cowboys with this moderately engaging romance. Former rodeo queen Jodi Brand returns home to Purvis, Wyo., to start a therapy riding clinic. One of the first people she runs into in town is Teague Treadwell, the "roughstock" boy from the wrong side of the tracks, who's now a very successful and very sexy rancher. Their mutual feelings quickly spark to life as Jodi tries to leave her glitzy rodeo queen persona behind and get people to take her seriously while Teague worries about controlling his temper and not turning into his abusive father. A drawn-out suspense subplot and annoying secondary character seriously undercut the main story, but western fans will enjoy Kennedy's take on the Wyoming landscape, beloved horses, and one tough cowboy.
Just too much. Just skipped through the book. Could read few sentences on a page to get what was happening.
