Her rancher boss is looking for the perfect wife…and she wants the job!
Poppy Sinclair kept her feelings for Isaiah Grayson secret for a decade. When her infuriatingly gorgeous Stetson-wearing boss enlists her help in finding him a convenient wife, she threatens to quit. Until Isaiah counters with an interesting proposal: Why doesn’t she marry him? Can she say yes to sharing his life and his bed, but not his heart?
A sweet and steamy romance about two halves finding their whole!
Want Me, Cowboy was such a fun read. Even when I was shaking my head at Isaiah’s obtuseness (90% of the time) or when I wanted to smack him upside the head (50% of the time), I was rooting for him and Poppy to somehow figure out how to be together. Yes, it would have been nice if things could have gone easier for her here–but if things had gone more smoothly, then she wouldn’t have been with Isaiah. (It isn’t explicitly mentioned, but given his particular social/interpersonal issues I’m guessing he’s somewhere on the autism spectrum. Fortunately for him, he’s got a family and at least one friend–Poppy–who accept him and love him as he is, even when he’s behaving in ways that seem counter to keeping people close to him.)
Poppy wasn’t without her own issues either, though, and I loved that she owned up to them and did what she could to counter all of her instincts that were telling her to bail on their relationship once and for all. Though their black moment felt pretty bleak, they both put in the effort needed to come back together with a very satisfying resolution. And that epilogue? Simply wonderful.
I can’t wait to come back to Copper Ridge for another visit–who’s next? 😉
