In Take Me, Cowboy by Jane Porter, when Jenny's fiance Charlie leaves her at the altar, she is humiliated and hurt. She left Marietta to make something of herself, to get beyond her family's poor roots. She loves her family but no longer wants to be "one of those Wright girls". Now she is back and the wedding is off.
When Colton sees Jenny walking away in her wedding dress he is awestruck and drawn to her. Jenny has always loved Colton, little did he know. As a friend of his sister, Jenny spent a lot of time around him growing up. Colton left Marietta too though, and they are both only back for a short time. But they keep running into each other and end up spending some good times together. Jenny's feelings for Colton never really went away and now she feels even more for him. Colton is feeling a lot for Jenny too, but is she ready to move on from Charlie? Can they trust their hearts and find a way to make a future together? Or will they go their separate ways again?
Take Me, Cowboy is the 4th book in The Cooper Mountain Rodeo series and we've heard bits and pieces about Jenny in the other books, so it was great to read her story! Jane will draw you into Jenny's life quickly, and her descriptions of small town Marietta and the people there will take you there. I really liked Jenny...she's worked hard to be where she is, but at the same time she's lost part of herself. Coming back to Marietta and seeing Colton again just might be what she needs. Colton is a strong, really likeable guy! Once he sees Jenny that's it for him, he's in love, but at the same time worried about being the rebound guy.
Jenny and Colton have a fast paced romance, but it works well because they are not complete strangers to each other. I really liked how Jane brings in all the family dynamics, they really help us understand Jenny and Colton.
Take Me, Cowboy by Jane Porter is a fun, romantic novella with characters you can relate to. Although it is part of The Cooper Mountain Rodeo series, it can definitely be read as a stand alone. I recommend reading the whole series though because they are all fantastic!
Highly recommended to any romance reader.
