One Night with the Cowboy by Eve Gaddy

Book Blurb:

Meet the Kellys of Whiskey River, Texas, men who have always gone through life, and women, with their father’s legendary charm.

Trey Kelly has it all. Eldest son of Boots Kelly, Trey runs the Kelly ranch, and Trey’s heart is with his “babies”, Kelly’s Champs, the World Champion cutting horses he breeds and sells. Women love Trey and he loves women, but he’s never met the one he wanted for keeps. Until…

Reclusive Ariana Wright‘s lavender farm sits next door to the Kelly spread. Ariana is a smart, ambitious chemist and after the car accident that left her scarred, the success of her new line of lavender-based beauty products is all Ariana is interested in.

Convincing Ariana to take a chance on love is a task that takes all of Trey’s cowboy determination. But can Ariana let go of the wounds of the past and give herself more than one night with the cowboy?

My Review:

One Night With The Cowboy is not only about Trey and Ariana, it's about Trey and his brothers forming relationships together.

I really enjoyed the family dynamics and what was happening with Trey and his brothers, what they had to do and how they were going to do it.  This was actually my favorite part of the book!

As for the romance, Trey is a great guy!  He's open, honest, and when he looks at Ariana, he sees someone he really cares about and wants to be with.  Unfortunately, Ariana has let one person define who she is after the accident, and that person is the one she believes to be right...Doing this has left her reclusive and unwilling to believe anyone could find her desirable.  She kept trying to read more (negative) into things than there was, and it got a little much at times.  I felt for her and what she'd been through, but she really was not moving on. They are both attracted, the feelings are there, but Ariana just can't trust herself or Trey.  I liked how Trey was with her, he didn't give up, he didn't push.   I liked how it all unfolded and who ended up doing the pushing!  Although I had a hard time connecting with Ariana, I enjoyed this book and everything it was about.

The secondary characters along with a strong sub plot in One Night With The Cowboy fit well into the plot, and I am really looking forward to the other books to come in this series.

One Night With The Cowboy is easy to fall into and I'd recommend it to any romance reader.

4/5 stars
