In the New York Times bestselling tradition of Jennifer Ryan, Maisey Yates, and B. J. Daniels comes the first book in Sara Richardson’s western contemporary romance series about bull-riding brothers.
NEVER FALL IN LOVE WITH A COWBOY
Jessa Mae Love is done with relationships. No matter how tempting he might be, she cannot—will not—fall for a man like Lance Cortez. The outrageously handsome cowboy is practically a living legend in Colorado, as famous for riding bulls as he is for breaking hearts. What would a big-time rodeo star like him see in a small-town veterinarian who wears glasses, rescues animals, and cries when watching rom-coms? Turns out, plenty.
Raising bulls, riding the circuit, and looking after his ailing father—Lance never stands still for long. Yet Jessa catches his attention, and the more she tries to resist him, the more he wants her. When she agrees to move to the ranch to keep an eye on Lance’s dad, Jessa tells him they have to keep it professional: no flirting, no sweet talk, and definitely no kissing. But with Jessa now living under his roof, that’s easier said than done . . .

Who doesn’t love a good cowboy romance? And I can tell you after reading Hometown Cowboy, I am so excited for this new series from Sara Richardson!
Jessa Mae Love has not had any luck at love… not one bit. Sure her parents never married and she never had the best role models for love, but that doesn’t mean that she’s not deserving of it. So why does she always pick the worst men in the world to fall for? After her father’s death her plans to take over the animal shelter he ran Topaz Falls, Colorado was becoming more of a hassle than a help. With no donations coming in and a facility that was run down, there wasn’t too much she could do to help propel her father’s dreams without having to kind of re-invent herself. The last person she thought she would gain attention from was Lance Cortez, bull rider and family friend who never paid attention to her before.
Lance Cortez has always been taking care of his family, at least since their mom walked out on him as a teen, leaving him to take care of his brothers and dad. Although he’s not old, he’s coming to the end of his career and doesn’t need any distractions from training for the World Championship. So when he notices that his dad is start to need more around the clock attention, he enlists the help of Jessa Mae, his dad’s best friend’s daughter, whom he helps out at her animal shelter. I mean he spends most of his free time with her anyways. What he didn’t expect was to have this pull towards the woman he’s known for most of his life… but she look like that the last time he saw her?
Jessa and Lance can’t deny the pull between the two of them, but they just aren’t right for each other. Jessa is looking for a happily ever after and Lance he doesn’t believe is a love that lasts. But can Jessa be the one girl who can help change his mind?
I loved this book so much. The yummy sexual tension between Lance and Jessa is fun, flirty and sexy. Such a great start to a series! I can’t wait for more of the Cortez brothers!
