Along Came A Cowboy - Christine Lynxwiler
Summary of the book:
Whoever told their babies not to grow up to be cowboys
didn't see the man in Dr. Rachel Donovan's waiting room.
When Rachel Donovan, a strong—willed chiropractor with
a past, meets Jack Westwood, a bull—headed cowboy
looking for a future, it looks like hate at first
fight. But when the dust settles, it may be love. Can
the chiropractor and the cowboy bridle their growing
attraction, or will love ultimately have free reign?
I've read Christine Lynxwiler before and I loved her books so I figured I'd like this book too. I did!
Rachel Donovan is a strong willed woman who knows what she wants. Although her life is changed when Jack Westwood makes an appearance in her life. They have a history (They were neighbors as kids.) and she does not want him to find out her BIG secret she's kept hidden for fifteen years. Jacks had a crush on her since he was fifteen and has made it known. But Rachel is afraid to get close to him for fear he might find out what happened almost sixteen years ago.
He finally breaks her down and she admits she's attracted to him. Every time she's with him she forgets all her troubles. But she then realizes she can't allow this relationship to go further and not tell him what she's been hiding from the entire town. So she breaks it off with him! Jack agrees to be just friends but inside he cringes at the idea of being "just friends" with the woman he loves.
The only thing I had a problem with in this book was Rachel is SO cautious about what people will think about anything she does. She's so cautious that she almost loses Jack for good because of it. You shouldn't care what people think. Their just people. Their judgement of you is nothing. God's opinion is the only one that matters!
Emily's Rating for This Book:
The next book I'll be doing is a Christmas book. I thought since it's four days till Christmas I'll read and review a Christmas book. The book is called Two From Galilee by Marjorie Holmes. It's the love story of Mary and Joseph.
