BLURB:

A WOMAN NEVER FORGETS HER FIRST COWBOY . . .


As a single mother, Naomi Sullivan is used to doing things on her own. She's finally saved enough from working at the Cortez Ranch to buy a lovely home for her and her little girl. Life is going as planned. But when her high school sweetheart comes riding back to town, this self-sufficient woman feels something she hasn't felt in years: red-hot, unbridled need for the handsome cowboy who left her behind.

Lucas Cortez doesn't plan on being in town long. Yet when he sees Naomi again-the gorgeous girl he never stopped loving-he's tempted to hang up his hat and stay awhile. He's already charmed his way into her daughter's heart, but he'll need more than sweet talk and roses to convince Naomi to give them a second chance-especially when she's hiding a secret that could change their lives forever . . .



My thoughts: 

A single mother, second chance romance, and a cowboy - what more could a girl ask for?!? I LOVED Naomi - her fierce independence, sass, and grit, as well as Lucas and his determination and patience and downright sexiness. There was A LOT going on, but for me it just made the story a page turner. I really enjoyed the focus on small town living (the good and bad aspects of it) and really related to Naomi's relationship with her daughter (once upon a time, I was a single mom to a little girl too), as well as Lucas need for a second chance in life after making a mistake (and how hard that can be to attain when inundated by the judgement of others). I will definitely go back and read the first book in the series and I look forward to moving on with the upcoming ones too. I give Comeback Cowboy 3.5 out of 5 wine glasses. 


An excerpt from Comeback Cowboy:

“I’m so sorry, Naomi.” For whatever reason, her heart had opened to him. Maybe only a crack, but that was all he needed. He stepped closer to her, so that her body was pressed against his. Out in the parking lot, a line of headlights moseyed out to the road, but he didn’t care. He didn’t know when he’d have this chance again. So he took her into his arms because he couldn’t wait. Couldn’t analyze. He had to see. He had to feel her. Had to know she was as desperate as he was.
“Lucas…” she whispered, closing her eyes.
He rested his hands on her hips, urging her closer. “I need to know you don’t hate me,” he said, drowning in the feel of her. His hands slipped down low on her back, until he had her locked in his arms.
“I don’t hate you,” she squeaked. “God, I don’t hate you at all.”
That was all he needed. Holding her tightly in his arms, he lowered his mouth to hers, unable to stop himself, unable to hold back anything. Her lips tasted sweet, so warm and wet. He pressed into them, drinking in the scent of her, the feel of her curves fit so tightly against his throbbing body.
She kissed him back, sighing deeply into his mouth as though letting go of her protests and hesitations.
His tongue sought hers, rekindling that connection they’d always had, electrifying everything else until the sparks of desire flashed all through him.
Her soft moan purred into him as her lips clung to his, and those hands of hers, always delicate but strong, climbed their way down his chest. He’d never regretted walking away from her as much as he did now, gripped by this one small taste of how it could’ve been with her…
