    WOW!

    I would describe this book with one word – WOW! From the time I started reading, I didn’t want to put this book down. This book covers the story of Jared Cade and Amberley James. Both are carrying baggage placed upon them by their now deceased fathers. Jared’s Dad had told him that the family would need a hero after he passed. He was to be the glue that kept the family together. He had promised his Dad that he would be that hero. Amberley’s Father had told her “If you’re not first, you’re last and if you’re last, you’re not much.” Both Father’s put extreme pressure of them from the grave to live up to their expectations. Add to that pressure, Jared lost his contract with the pro-football Bronco team due a shoulder injury that had made him that hero. Amberley is suffering from a generic eye disease that has left her legally blind hindering her from achieving her goal of winning a place on the EPA Premier Touring team in barrel racing which made her feel like not much of anything. And then they find that their long time, deep friendship might be headed to a deeper level. Their struggle with their personal relationship as well as professional goals and other complications along the way make this book sizzle with both highs and lows emotionally that will have you smiling big or grabbing for the tissue box. It’s a struggle that will have you cheering for the underdog, wanting to slap them when they can’t seem to open their eyes along with the hearts to see what’s right in front of them, and loving the animals that seem to have more sense than they do at times. One paragraph in the book will stick with me a long time. It was referring to what the handicapped or those with disabilities really were. They were described as wounded warriors. Their battle is to not only survive but to thrive. They succeed by their own measures and accept themselves as they were designed. Flaws, injuries, illnesses represented badges of honor worn with pride. They marked you as someone who life tested, and individual facing constant challenges, a survivor who’d never quit fighting. I would highly recommend FALLING FOR A COWBOY and have to all my family, friends and anyone that wants a GREAT book to read. You will want more – going back to read the first book in the series – CHRISTMAS AT CADE RANCE and have you greatly anticipating the next book in the series. This book can definitely be read as a stand-alone book. It is from the Rocky Mountain Cowboy series about the Cade and Loveland families from Carbondale, Colorado.

    Falling for a Cowboy

    I received a free copy of this book through Netgalley and voluntarily reviewed it. Falling for a Cowboy is the second book in Karen Rock’s Rocky Mountain Cowboys series. This book follows Jared, he’s a bit the charmer of the family and everything comes easy to him. And Amberley, a barrel racer who takes a big set back when she becomes legally blind. It’s a story about falling in love and finding your way. Just like the first book this book was a great read. It’s romantic, heartwarming and while it’s definitely a great romance book, it’s so much more than that. It deals with expectations, promises, physical disability and also how hard we can be on ourselves. It’s about winning, following your dreams and fighting for what you want. I liked how this was a friend to lovers romance. Jared and Amberley have been best friends for a long time and now that they’re suddenly feeling more, they’re struggling with how to proceed and whether to risk their friendship for more. I liked how well these two knew each other and their romance was great. They always had each others back. Although I did got annoyed a bit about something Jared did and said toward the end of the book. Amberley handles it great and I only respected her more for it. Both Jared and Amberley were great characters. Jared is a bit of a charmer to whom everything comes easy, except now he has to win Amberley’s heart and he actually has to fight for something. It was interesting to him struggle with that and have to come to terms with his feelings and realize that there are things fighting worth fighting for. I did get annoyed at Jared a few times, but overall it was clear he wanted the best for Amberley and his family and that he really cared about Amberley. I didn’t really care for their competitive spirit tough and felt sad how they let the words of their dead parents influence so much of their life. Although it did feel realistic, it also felt like they were a bit too hard on themselves at times. And while I liked Jared, I think I liked Amberley even more. At the start of the book she becomes legally blind and at first she really struggles to come to terms with it and I really felt for her. I thought her reaction felt very real. It’s great once she starts to work with her disability and realize she doesn’t have to give up on your dreams. she slowly wins back her confidence and also finds something new that she loves doing. She does push herself a bit too hard at times and was so focused on being number one and winning, but once she lets go of that it’s beautiful to see her transform. I also liked how the parts written from Amberley’s point of view illustrated her blindness and also how she handled it. Like how the sounds and smells got more prominent and she imaged how things would look. And also how she moved around and used other clues than her sight. We also get to see the rest of the Cade family again and Sofia and Javi. I was lovely to see how the rest of the characters were doing and I enjoyed getting to see the slight romance story of the Cade brothers mother continue in this book. It’s fun to get to see the already familiar characters from a different point of view. There are also are some new characters and some awesome animals (I really liked Petey) we meet in this book. To summarize: Falling for a Cowboy is a beautiful and heartwarming friends to lovers romance. The romance between Amberley and Jared was great to see, they’ve been best friends for so long and know each other so well and I liked seeing them slowly grow even closer. I liked both characters, but I did get annoyed at times at Jared. But then on the other hand there are some great scenes with these touching gestures and how he is there for Amberley and how her blindness doesn’t change how he feels about her. I did really like Amberley and seeing how she adapted to being blind. I didn’t really care for their competitiveness, but I did like seeing them both change over the course of the book and realize that winning wasn’t all that’s important. While it’s a romance, it’s also deals with a lot of other topics and plot lines and I liked how that enriched the plot. Overall this was another great book in this series and I am already looking forward to the next book!

    ...phenomenally fascinating storytelling.

    Amberley is the kind of heroine you hope to find, but never knew you were searching for. Jared is a walking dream that steps from a imaginative figure into real life. Falling for a Cowboy blends heartbreaking realism with courageously inspiring characters. Karen Rock has created a piece of hope in what seems like a hopeless situation. At her lowest point, Amberley faced her fears. She may have lost her faith but Jared refused to allow her to lose that spark that made her into the woman she was meant to be. Through the tears, despite the fears and because of faith, what began as a tragedy became a triumph. Falling for a Cowboy is phenomenally fascinating storytelling.
