  • Second Chance Cowboy

    I received a complimentary copy of this book and I am voluntarily reviewing it. While this is a part of a series and some of the prior characters make multiple appearances, you don’t have to read them to fully enjoy this story. Wes was a foster boy that came and stayed with Emily and her parents for 4 years. Wes and Emily loved to tag behind her father, who was the local veterinarian. The two made plans to both become vets and take over the practice. During their senior year in high school, they went from being friends who helped each other to being in love. That was why Wes’ adrupt departure in the middle of the night right before prom, crushed Emily. In the fifteen years since Wes has been gone, there has not been any word from Wes. Emily did take over her father’s practice but she is working herself to the bone and is exhausted. When Wes shows back up in Shelter Creek can he explain why he left? Why didn’t he contact the family since leaving? Can Emily forgive him? This book is written in my favorite dual POV format. I love that as it gives me that glimpse into the characters’ thoughts. I can more fully understand the characters and their actions during a scene that way. This is a sweet, clean story. I would recommend this to anyone who loves a second chance with a first love.

  • Loved it!

    I loved the chemistry and friendship between Emily and Wes. They were the perfect team, both personally and professionally. Their second chance romance was filled with laughter, tears and lots of animal adventures. I always love returning to Shelter Creek!

  • Second Chances

    Second Chance Cowboy is the fifth book in the Heroes of Shelter Creek series. It is the first book I have read by this author and was fine reading as a stand-alone. It is a heart-warming, second chance romance with all the small-town charm. The people of Shelter Creek were charming and full of warmth. The pacing is perfect, and the plot was developed. Veterinarian Emily Fielding had taken over her father’s practice in the small town of Shelter Creek and needed to hire another veterinarian to help with all the work. Coincidentally her first love, Wes Marlow, returns to town and wants the position. He had broken her heart when he had just disappeared from town after high school without ever contacting her or her family. She was afraid to give him another chance but could not deny he would be a great fit for her practice. Wes returned to Shelter Creek hoping to settle down and start over again with Emily. It was his dream and it had helped him to survive since he had left Shelter Creek. I enjoyed reading this book and am so glad to discover this author. The characters were so genuine, and it was so easy to get lost in the story. Wes was such a great guy, and he gave up so much to raise his younger brother. He really wanted to become part of Emily’s life again but had enough respect for her to allow her the choice. Emily needed someone to help show her how to be fun again, but will she risk her heart again? I received an ARC and am voluntarily leaving a review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

  • A Shared Love of Animals

    Emily put up a lot of walls and Wes's sudden departure without any follow up contact in the fifteen years since started the process. Emily eventually accepts his reasons why, but still holds him at arm's length afraid to get her heart broken again. She seems to have a chip on her shoulder much of the book, thinking that too many of her clients aren't happy that her father left his veterinary practice to a woman. She is overworked and struggling to find another vet to lighten her load when she agrees to let Wes work for her on a temporary basis. I loved his escape artist dog Rex who enjoys watching animals on TV. The messy bald eagle rescue made he laugh out loud. The horse Fancy made me cry over what she endured. It was great to catch up with the people of Shelter Creek, their meddling, romances, and expanding families.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • 4.5 *s - Amazing chemistry leaping off the pages!

    I remember reading the first book in this series and greatly enjoyed it, looking forward to the next installments. And as is my curse, I read so much that sometimes I miss some other books in series until one crosses my path again. I'm so glad that this one did! I absolutely loved it. And I will say that it definitely works as a standalone. Wes hurt Emily when he disappeared all of those years ago, but he had his reasons for doing it. Neither one of them forgot the other. And when they get back together, the chemistry between them simply leaps off of the pages. They're cautious, but still their connection to each other quickly falls back into place. You just cannot replace your best friend and your soulmate so easily. I absolutely loved reading about them and experiencing their relationship. And I think it is better that the two of them had a chance to grow before coming back together again. I don't know that Emily would have ended up so strong and confident in her own abilities, nor that Wes would have ever realized his own true worth without those years apart. It's making this second attempt even stronger than ever, and that's what we all want and need in our life partner. A bonus for me in this book was all of the animals that Wes and Emily have to take care of. I felt like I learned a lot about the care of horses. It's been so long since I've had the opportunity to work with them, and now I want to again. I know this series is not over, yet. I'm going to fill in the blank spots I have missed and keep a closer eye out for even more. Thank you to the author and to Prism Book Tours for a requested review copy. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
