    Author masterful at demonstrating grief

    I'm not quite sure what I was expecting when I decided to read Brokedown Cowboy - Maisey Yates is a "new to me" author - but there is no way I expected what I got in this book. All I can say is "WOW"! This book blew me away. I was laughing and crying right along with Felicity and Connor as they navigated the transition from friends to lovers, a journey that was fraught with emotion and pain and tears and ultimately love. In Brokedown Cowboy, Maisey Yates gives us an incredibly complex character in our hero, Connor. Connor has been living in the darkness of grief for years, and the author does a wonderful job of showing the reader Connor's life after the loss of his wife. I've never experienced grief to the level of Connor's, but I was able to feel the pain Connor is feeling through the authors words. It was such a realistic depiction of a man who feels he's lost everything - he's drowning himself in a bottle and pushing away everyone who may try to love him for fear of losing him. You'd think he would come across as a jerk, but despite his gruff exterior and his short temper with most people in his life, I really liked Connor from the very beginning - I was rooting for him to dig himself out of the depths of darkness he was living in to join the worlds of the living and loving. Felicity is a woman who has spent her entire life believing that she had to "earn" anything anyone every gave her - its like she has to keep a scorecard to ensure she has reciprocated anything that has been given to or done for her. She's a naturally very giving and loyal person, but her self-esteem is so wrapped up in believing that if she doesn't get what she wants, then she's not deserving of it. As a result, she puts her needs second in every relationship she has - family, friends, lovers. She believes she's not deserving of a man who loves her the way she should be loved; she wants to be loved. Throw Felicity and Connor together in close quarters and sparks will most definitely fly. Felicity and Connor have a searing-hot chemistry that just flies off the paper and has you turning the pages as fast as you can. The sex scenes are detailed. I found they enhanced the story because for Connor, the sexual interactions he has with Felicity are part of his healing process. I found myself crying and laughing right along with the characters in Brokedown Cowboy. From the very first chapter, I was laughing out loud at the humor infused by the author and the sense-of-humor of the characters. From the very beginning, you get a picture of the wonderful relationship between these family members and friends - a perfect example from the beginning of the book: "So," Sadie said, "pizza, pizza that's folded in on itself and deconstructed pizza." "Pretty much," Connor said. "Any vegetables?" Sadie asked. "It's like you don't know us at all," Jack said. This group of people are true family, related by blood or not. They laugh together, they love together, they cry together, and they grieve together. The laugh-out-loud humor may be immediately followed by grieving tears, and then a loving embrace. The wide spectrum of emotions experienced by the characters keeps your heart racing from the first page to the last laugh. Maisey Yates has a hit with the return to Copper Ridge in Brokedown Cowboy Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    This was an emotionally turbulent yet extremely rewarding novel. Yates kept me captive from the first page to the last (and now I’m counting down the days for the next in the series). I laughed and cried in turn while becoming part of the world that was unfolding before my eyes. Yet, the story was also about so much more than simply the relationship between the main characters. Every aspect of the story made it more believable and loveable. Yates has multifaceted character development and complexly realistic characters down pat. The main characters of this novel are no exception. I love how who they are today is built directly upon where they came from. The fact that this isn’t just Connor’s second marriage, but that there’s a big old twist in the relationship makes it more interesting. It also makes it that much more heartbreaking and harder for the characters to come to grips with. I really felt for both of the main characters, if in completely different manners. But these fantastic main characters are backed up with some intriguing individuals in their family & friends circle who truly fill out the story nicely. I really enjoyed the roles that they play in this novel. Yates not only brings her characters to life, she also brings ranching and farm living to life in a big & realistic manner. I loved getting to know these characters better in their home surroundings. This novel was definitely a great addition to Yates’ series. It was heartfelt & funny, while at the same time tackling some very tough and sensitive subjects. It’s a must read for anyone who enjoys a good romance. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
