Steamy, sexy, and laugh-out-loud funny, THE TRUTH ABOUT COWBOYS is a new contemporary novel that will pull your heartstrings and steam up your e-reader…
While I was off pitching in the big leagues, my family was back in the small town of Sweetwater, Texas, running the family ranch. Then tragedy hit and I discovered there were secrets that my family kept, problems they hid. I went home, left behind the money, women, and fame. I took over the ranch and took care of my grandmother. I took over hiding the secrets. Then she came to town. A smart-mouthed, clumsy, too-smart-and-too-pretty-for-my-own-good city girl hiding out to write a book. She's right here, on my property, in the cottage my grandmother rented her without my permission, and she sees too much. She knows too much.
Now suddenly my world is spinning, and she's shoving a baseball back in my hand while baking cookies with my grandmother. She's the devil and an angel all in one fiery little package. I decide I'll wait her out. She'll go back to the city. Only suddenly I don't want her to leave, and everything I’ve settled for in my life isn't enough. I want to play ball and I want her, but there's that secret that won't let go, but neither will she.

Jessica and Jason
Jessica, a high-powered divorce attorney, has just had the worst day of her life. After discovering her fiancé with his secretary and then placed on leave for calling a client a lying cheater, Jessica leaves Dallas. Jessica makes a hasty decision to rent a cabin, in the middle of the country, in Sweetwater, Texas. On her way to the cabin, her car gets stuck in the mud and she’s “rescued” by a gruff cowboy. Although she is drawn to the cowboy, she secretly wonders if he’s an axe murderer. She’s drawn to him, but his mistrust is off-putting. Then, she gets a good look at him and realizes who he is...
Jason has no use for a city girl like Jessica. He’s lived the city life and doesn’t want the reminders of what he was forced to leave behind. After suffering the tragic loss of his parents, Jason leaves MLB to return to Sweetwater and the ranch he grow up on. The ranch that is secretly struggling to stay afloat. Even after putting his life savings into the ranch, Jason’s barely able to pay his employees. A return to his MLB pitching career would solve his financial situation, but he vows to never leave his grandma behind again.
Between Martha’s crazy antics, Kelly the hairless cat, and the banter between Jason and Jessica this novel is a hilarious mess! I loved Jessica’s strength, determination, klutziness, and inability to cook. I liked that she wasn’t whiny and didn’t take crap from Jason. She endeared herself to him, tearing down his walls and becoming the best ball girl a pitcher could ever dream of. Jessica’s faith in Jason propelled him to overcome his fear of failure and take a chance on living again. I loved his plans for the ranch and his yoga, match-making granny! The best in opposites attract stories! I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.
Very enjoyable read!
The Truth About Cowboys is one fine read with characters readers will fall in love with. Divorce lawyer, Jessica flees to Sweetwater, TX after her engagement and her job implode. She has rented a little cottage from Martha, who neglected to tell her the cottage was actually owned by her grandson, former Yankee’s pitcher, Jason Jenks. These two are like oil and water...or maybe more like oil and vinegar...which when shaken blend together quite nicely. While the dialogue and situations are cute, clever, sassy, and sexy, the story has a lot of depth. Jessica and Jason have issues with trust and self-esteem which only makes their sparring more fun to read about. Add in the very strong character of Martha, a 70 year old opinionated super talented baker with a knack for pulling strings and readers are in for a real treat. I voluntarily reviewed an advance copy of this book from NetGalley. Most highly recommend.
The Truth About Cowboys will make you have a love/hate relationship with the story. It has a slow burn that will kill you slowly. Some may not like that in a story, and some like me will be begging for more. I had so much emotions running through me as I am not very patient. But good things come to those who wait, and believe me, this is worth the wait!
What am I rambling about? Well that will bring some spoiler alerts. But I will say, you will love Jessica and Jason's story. You will love the side characters (hint hint Martha). But most of all, The Truth About Cowboys is memorable and will stay in your head for days to come!
