Review: Love Drunk Cowboy – Carolyn Brown

Genre: Contemporary romance
Pages: 384
Published: May 1st 2011 Sourcebooks Casablanca

All Austin Lanier wants is to sell her inherited watermelon farm, slip on her stilettos and run back to corporate America. Until the drop dead sexy cowboy next door, Rye O’Donnell, decides he’ll only take the farm if he can get the fiery woman who owns it as part of the deal...
My thoughts:
This book was just sweeter than watermelonpie (now I have never tasted that, but it fits the language in the book. And I also totally made it up, lol.)

Austin is a city girl who inherits her granny’s watermelon farm, and she falls in love with the life. She used to come there every summer as a kid. She is nice and I have nothing bad to say about her. Then we have Rye, her sexy bull riding neighbour. There is chemistry there at once and he wants her so much. My heart went all awww there because he truly falls in love with her at first sight, and I love a man like that.

The book was so sweet and nice, and they took is slow which I loved too. They formed a friendship, they went out on dates, sure it was all during a short period of time but it still felt slow. Above all this book is a sweet love story about a couple that is nothing alike. A city slicker meets a cowboy. But then the city slicker is pretty country after all. A fancy career and nothing else is not perhaps the best thing to have. You also need love and a family of your own. At least this is what Austin will find out; oh and that actually doing some farming is good for the soul.

I liked their courtship dance; I liked the country language thrown in here and there. Maybe because it felt β€œexotic” to me. I liked the sweetness of the story and that there was no big drama, just these two falling in love, and making decisions. Will she stay?

I want a cowboy of my own! This book was easy to read and it left me with a smile on my face. Since this is a series I do wonder who she will write about next. There are some good candidates, and I will definitely read that book.  Until then I recommened this book to you all. 

Sweet and nice with a hunky cowboy on top.

Yes sweet πŸ˜€

    If there is nothing else to read…no, even not then. Sorry but I am like a bear with a sore head today and this book is so not my genre. Of course I would eventually read it. I've read even some Harlequins although I hated every minute of it.

    Cute review! Sounds like a good book. ^.^Did it save it as a draft? Try looking there. That's what it did to Lizzy and Amy…not for me though.

  3. naida says:

  4. Melissa (Books and Things) says:

    Not into cowboys, but you make a good argument for me actually reading this one. Plus the title is too funny.Oh and a HEA for your FF?! *thud* I think I fainted! πŸ˜‰ Just don't tell how Silk manipulated her way to the alter. lol

    Girl..sweet was the correct word for this book. I really enjoyed it too. Rye was yummlicious! Great review and I love your little made up "sweeter then watermelon pie"…lol!Crazy blogger! Took down my post too and comments!

    You've given me a hankering for Watermelon pie even though I don't like Watermelon or pie! (It's pastry I don't like much – yuk) πŸ™‚

  7. Aurian says:

    No, not really my kind of book. I have a few contemporary authors that I pick when tired of the paranormals and need some easy reading. But those are enough.
