Wrangling myself a cowboy was supposed to be a rowdy one-night stand, not turn my carefully cataloged life upside down.
As a librarian, I was used to steamy romance between the pages. But as a lonesome single woman, I needed to corral some trailblazing between the sheets …
Buck Off Ranch seemed like the perfect place to put on my big-girl britches and throw a plot twist in my story.
Mysterious cowboy Tripp Miller was as rugged as he was handsome. After he left me tickled pink at the local saloon, I was determined to live out my favorite Western romance with him as my leading man.
Rope me. Ride me. Satisfy me.
Talk about sore in the saddle!
It turned out, this small town had sparked quite the big adventure.
I was caught somewhere between saving a horse and riding a cowboy or galloping right out of my comfort zone.
I just hoped Tripp was up for the ride because I reckoned I needed more than eight seconds.
I want to be Josie Thatcher when I grow up!
I think I’m ruined for any other cowboy romance because it doesn’t get much better than Josie Thatcher, Cowboy Catcher! This is my first book by Kat Addams and I was roped in by the cover and title, but I enjoyed the entire ride this book took me on because of the humor and heart.
Josie is a quirky librarian who despite her awkwardness, had me laughing on the first page with her inner thoughts. She is lonely without much of a life outside of her books, so she decides to take the bull by the horns and live out one of her cowboy romances. Josie is just hilarious which is great because the cowboy she catches is funny and goofy as well, making them the perfect pair!
Tripp is a book reading cowboy with a tragic past that he keeps hidden, but we still see his sweet and fun personality shine through despite all that. He isn’t the typical love em and leave em cowboy type, and everyone in the small town considers him to be “one of the good ones.” When the truth comes out about his past, it was really emotional, and I wasn’t prepared for the tears! It wasn’t too long before I was back to laughing as Josie and Tripp figure things out.
This was a quick read for me but it packed a lot of punch, and be warned it gets steamy, although it’s only maybe a couple of times which makes sense with the length of the book.
I’m just counting down the days until I get to come back to the small town of Gillibrook and Tripp’s big family for the next book!
What a great start to this new series by Kat Addams, Josie Thatcher, Cowboy Catcher was a delight to read and I love every single page of it!!
I love Josie's character so much, I mean what's not to like? she was super funny with love for fictional characters just like me and she had a great heart. She lived a simply life but had great dreams and fantasies. When she goes to Buff Off Ranch is with a mission. When she meets sexy cowboy Tripp she is ready for her wild fantasies to come true.
I love the connection between Josie and Tripp. They are able to enjoy each other company and their interactions are both entertaining and steamy but also sweet.
Tripp was sweet, charming and completely adorable. I loved how he is able to just let go around Josie. But not everything in him is happy, he carries guilt and when is time to face it , Would he'll be able to it and live the life he deserves? Would he be able to let Josie completely in?
I can't wait for what's to come out next for this series.
The Librarian finds her Cowboy!
This was probably one of the MOST fun reads I’ve had in a while. The absolute brilliance that Kat Addams has when she writes her characters is one of the many things I love when reading her books. In this book, Josie and Tripp are no exception as they are just bursting with personality, humor and a chemistry that was so entertaining to read. I am BEYOND excited to read Emma Jean’s story next!!
