Review : Cowboy Town by Kasey Millstead

~Synopsis~
Ever since her parents passed away in a tragic car accident, Eden Cross has been living a quiet, stable and predictable life in inner Sydney – the total opposite of her carefree, relaxed, happy-go-lucky past. Her parents passing and the fact she’s an only child meant Eden was left with her best friend, Jules and Matt, her boyfriend of three years as her only family. That was until she discovered something about Matt that would turn her life upside down. Eden leaves Sydney in a hurry and begins an adventure that takes her across four Australian states before she lands in Pine Creek, Northern Territory.

Jackson Henley has lived in Pine Creek his entire life. He runs a massive cattle and cropping station with his twin brother, Jeremy, which they inherited when their parents retired. He’s had a bad experience with relationships courtesy of The Bitch - Dannika, so lately he’s preferred to play the field. That is, until he comes face to face with the stunning brunette beauty who’s behind the bar at the Cow and Calf. The problem is, she won’t tell him her name, she won’t give him the time of day, and she won’t give him a chance to prove himself.

What’s it going to take for Eden to give Jackson a chance? Does he have the patience to even bother fighting for her? How will he handle the competition?

In the end, will Jackson have what it takes to convince Eden to start living again, instead of just existing?

Cowboy Town is a very sweet love story with ups & downs along the way. Eden (Edie) Cross used to be fun and carefree, but when both of her parents passed away, her freewheeling attitude disappeared. She didn't have anyone except her best friend, Jules, and boyfriend, Matt. Matt was a "safe" boyfriend, but something happens which makes Eden decide to pack up her things and leave on a road trip. She leaves her hometown of Sydney, Australia and ends up driving four states over to Pine Creek, Northern Territory. Her journey had been fun, but she felt different when she landed in Pine Creek. She had no idea what was to come when she decided to stay for a while.

In comes Jackson Henley, half owner of a cattle and cropping station, who is obnoxious, sexy, charismatic and full of himself. At least that's how he is portrayed when he first meets the beautiful Eden Cross. She doesn't make it easy on him, because her first impression of him wasn't a good one. Jackson has to work hard to get Eden's attention and it was really fun reading his different attempts while trying to get her to go out with him on a date. He can be very charming and funny. Will he be able to win her over?  Does he have what it takes?  This story was funny, romantic, mildly dramatic, sad at times,  but all in all it was beautiful and gratifying.  This was my first novel by Kasey Millstead and I'm looking forward to reading the sequel "Sky Cowboy" which portrays the lives of Jeremy (Jackson's twin) and Ava.

A very raw Story filled with angst, anger, resentment and finally forgiveness.
I thoroughly enjoyed this second book of Bella Jewels.
My heart ached for all that happened to Spike and Ciara, Or Danny and Tom cat as they call each other. They were joined at the hip and best of friends.
While never admitting their feelings for one another Spike starts a relationship with Cheyenne, Ciara’s sister.
Cheyenne is very spiteful and is only with Spike to make her sister jealous which just made me furious. They get married and she is pregnant when involved in a car accident that is caused by Hogan attacking Spike and his motor cycle gang Heavens Sinners. It ends badly and Cheyenne dies.
Ciara blames Spike and a lot of hurtful and malicious words are exchanged that can’t be repaired.
 I feel sorry for Ciara as her parents treat her like it was her fault somehow that Cheyenne died.
So Ciara leaves town…….
When she returns and sees Spike, they still can’t be civil to one another but the spark is still there and it’s undeniable.
“I want to save you. I want that friend that I know is in there. I can’t walk away, Spike. I hate you, and yet I can’t walk away.”
After the tension is too much they can’t fight temptation any longer. The sex is sizzling!
Ciara is feeling happy, yet, confused as Spike is treating her like a piece of meat and trying to detach his feelings, which brings me to tears.
When he finally wakes up to himself I feel like screaming halleluiah.
So many Ups, downs, trials and tribulations and a twist at the end of the book had me on the edge of my seat.
This book deserves 5/5 Stars hands down!
Looking forward to Jacksons Story!

Author: Katy Evans
Date of Publication: November 26, 2013
Publisher: Gallery Books
Blog Tour Hosted by: The SUBClub Books


Synopsis
Underground fighter Remington Tate is a mystery, even to himself. His mind is dark and light, complex and enlightening. At times his actions and moods are carefully measured, and at others, they spin out of control.

Through it all, there's been one constant: wanting, needing, loving, and protecting Brooke Dumas. This is his story; from the first moment he laid eyes on her and knew, without a doubt, she would be the realest thing he's ever had to fight for.

I LOVED  this book!! I first want to say make sure you read Real & Mine prior to reading this book. I loved Remy because we finally get a book from his point of view. I have always wanted to be able to get in his head since the first book and I finally got my chance to do it. Couple points I will hit on are: The book goes back and forth between the past and present which was so nice because we get to see their whole love story from start to finish from his eyes. In saying that though I didn't feel like I was reading a repeat of the first 2 books at all. I felt like this was a whole new story all together and even though it's the same situations it is told from Remy's point of view which is just so different and it explains things that happened that we were not aware of in the first two books.  If you have read Real & Mine you must follow it up with Remy so that you can get the whole story from both sides. It is truly an amazing story and so beautifully written. Thank you Katy Evans for giving us all these books but especially for giving us Remy!! This book will always hold a special place in my heart!
5 stars
