    Great story

    A Tall, Dark Cowboy Christmas was a good 4 star read. Grant is a widower and hasn’t been able to move forward after his wife's death. When he discovers McKenna sleeping in a cabin on his families property he wasn’t sure what to think. He ends up offering her some help. McKenna came to town to see her birth father, with no money she ended up finding an abandoned cabin, where she ends up meeting Grant. She isn’t sure how to approach her birth father and is a little uneasy about it. McKenna ends up working for Grants brother on the ranch. We discover that these two have a lot of things in common. They both have things from their past they are trying to move forward from. My heart really went out to McKenna and her struggles, all she wanted was to be a part of a family. When Grant met McKenna there was something about her that pulled him in, he was feeling things that he hasn’t felt in a long time. When these two connect we get some very hot and steamy scenes. I loved the story but at times it seemed to drag on a little bit. These two had such a great connection and chemistry. I was happy to read their story and see them finally find the happiness they both deserved. If your looking for a great read that tugs at the heart strings 1-click and get started today. This is my first read from Maisey Yates and I look forward to reading more from her. I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book. Reviewed by MAustin from Alpha Book Club

    Down but not out

    McKenna longs for a family, something she hasn't had since she was a toddler when her mother gave her up and she was placed in foster care. Aged out of the system at eighteen, she spends nearly a decade hoping against hope that someone was out there that she could indeed call family. When information about a man who might possibly be her father comes her way, she grabs her suitcase and heads for Gold Valley. Grant is out of hope. He's out of longing. He's...out. The losses he's suffered have made him distant and ornery, not really a good place to be for someone so young who has so much life going on around him. But loss is loss, and grief is grief. Doesn't mean he gets to be annoyingly contemptible. Discovering McKenna was a surprise. Training her on his family ranch was ground-breaking. Engaging with another human on a civil level was amusing. But McKenna wasn't just a match to his cantankerous personality. She was his perfect opposite. Where Grant's well of hope had run dry, hers was overflowing. Hers became his, renewing that longing, that desire for more that he hadn't felt in so long. Their romance wasn't easy though. In no way was it smooth sailing. There was so much pushing away instead of pulling together. There was so much hurt and anxiety over letting go and staying. Like I said, loss is loss, and grief is grief. Both manifest in unexpected ways and can lead to a world of hurt and regret if it isn't acknowledged and dealt with accordingly. And realization is a powerful motivator. Realizing what could be, what won't be, what needs to be, what has to be. When Grant reached this point with McKenna, the significance wasn't lost on anyone aware of their relationship. It was truly time to move forward, to open up again, to love and be loved again. While the focus of this story is Grant and McKenna's romance, the underlying plot is McKenna's search for family. She finds her father, who, unfortunately, isn't the man she deserves to have as a father. His attempt to buy her off is appalling, but meeting one of her half-brothers gave me hope of her keeping some connection to that side of her even if her father doesn't want her. If I could sum up this book in one word, it would be one I've used throughout this review: hope. Life has a way of knocking a person down, but it's hope, more often than not, that pushes them to get back up and keep pressing forward. There's a good amount of determination and will as well, but hope fuels all of that. Coupled with love, it's an echo of what the Christmas season is about, why there are songs and poems and stories (yes, stories upon stories!) written about such powerful and compelling sentiments. It pulls people, like Grant and McKenna, from the pits of minimal existence and thrusts them into lives that are filled to overflowing with long-forgotten or never-before-felt emotions and feelings that they are so deserving of and cherish. This is one I'll hold close this holiday season, not just for the loveliness of the story but the reminder of hope in uncertainty. Ms. Yates knew what she was doing when she penned this story. May it's message ring loud this coming Christmas season. Received from publisher for an honest review
