    A Second Chance at Love

    Tough Luck Cowboy was such an unexpected surprise! This enemies to lovers/second chance romance hooked me in right from the start and though this is my first time reading a cowboy romance, I know it won't be my last! This is book 2 in the interconnected standalone Crossroads Ranch series, and can be enjoyed without reading the previous book, Second Chance Cowboy. I really loved both Luke and Lily. The tension and build up between them was so delicious and fun. I loved seeing their oil and water mix and watching all the sparks fly. ;) There is so much unsaid between these two and their circumstances couldn't be more complicated, with Lily being the ex-wife of Luke's best friend. Through it all though, you can't help but root for these two to get their second chance. One of my favorite things about the two of them is that even with the threat of loss looming or the odds stacked against them, they don't give up their individual dreams and hopes (much to the dismay of the other at times). Even though Luke was emotionally closed off and Lily's instinct was to run, I still found these 2 characters very brave and strong. Things move pretty quickly in the book, but considering this has been three years in the making, it didn't feel rushed or like instalove at all. Though I really enjoyed the ending and epilogue (I'm hoping for more details or an epilogue further down the road in the next book or beyond), I was left curious about the future of Tucker and Luke's friendship. Their reckoning was quick due to the timing of their discussion and just didn't seem fully resolved to me. Perhaps this will also be addressed in the next book. I actually have not read book 1, Second Chance Cowboy, but Ava ended up being one of my favorite characters. Her friendship and loyalty to Lily was unwavering and her analogy to being Lily's bra was the best! Everyone can only hope to have a friend like her. I also am very intrigued by the youngest Everett, Walker, and am excited for his book next! *I voluntarily read an advance reader copy of this book*

    3.975 ~> Daddy Issues, Drama, and Distraction Sex

    ✩ ✩ ✩ ✩ 4-STAR ✩ REVIEW ✩ ✩ ✩ ✩ > > Judging a Book by its Cover < < Intense looking cowboy taking up the cover, hay rolls in the background. Synopsis sounds interesting and fun. > > Looking Deeper < < POV ~> Third-person First, I’d like to say that I’m not sure why there were hay rolls on the cover… the Everett brothers run a cattle ranch and winery. At no time were they growing or harvesting hay. Anyways… Luke’s story is the second to be told in this series, his older brother Jack (Jr) received the first one with Second Chance Cowboy. Despite it being the second book, AJ Pine does a good job in filling in any backstory that was needed so new readers (like myself) do not feel left behind or out of the loop. Luke’s been in love with Lily since the day he first laid on her three years ago. Unfortunately, his insecurities got in the way and his best friend swooped in and stole her and married her. Lily never thought that only a few years after saying “I do” she’d be saying “I’m out”. But that’s what she’s done. She’s done with Tucker’s late-night partying and certainly done with Tucker’s cheating. Luke thinks she’s a controlling hag, she thinks he’s an irresponsible party boy that’s to blame for corrupting Tucker. But things take an unexpected turn the day she signs her divorce papers and inadvertently gets herself hired to cater a celeb’s wedding… to her ex. The cast of characters are alright but it seems like there’s a lot of drama to be had at the Everett ranch. Three boys dealing with daddy issues is almost as bad as a sorority house with PMS. Luke and Lily’s chemistry was undeniable but their interactions were occasionally irritating. (Again, too much drama, baggage, issues). Communication was terrible between them and they often tried to solve their problems with sex, which really was not the key to resolution but I’m sure most readers won’t complain. The story flowed well and the writing is smooth. Conflicts could have been easily avoided with more mature discussions. Predictability was on the low end. The conclusion was cute and provided a satisfying HFN / implied HEA ending. I’m sure their story will play out, along with Jack and Ava’s, some more in the background of Walker’s book. .

    Great story!!

    Lily's birthday is spent finalizing her divorce and offering to cater her now-ex-husband's wedding. Talk about starting a book off with a bang!! Luke and Lily seem to hate each other but when they end up being thrust together constantly, they have a chemistry that can only be described as explosive. Luke is a laid-back, reckless rodeo cowboy. Lily is a Type-A, driven chef. They seem so different which is why when they met, Luke differed to his friend. But the more time they spend together, the more their similarities come to light and their hate grows to more than either of them were expecting. I loved Luke and Lily!! I was immediately pulling for them. Even though there was definitely some drama in their story, I felt like this book was mostly light and feel good. I am loving this Crossroads Ranch series and I can't wait to see what happens in Walker's book! *This is my voluntary review of an advanced reader copy*
