I don’t know how I came upon Part Time Cowboy by Maisey Yates, but I’m very glad that I did. This was a lengthy, and entertaining romance read that I really enjoyed.
Sadie Miller isn’t expecting any welcome-home parades on her return to Copper Ridge. Least of all from part-time rancher, full-time lawman Eli Garrett. The straight-laced, impossibly hot deputy sheriff glares at her like she’s the same teenage hoodlum who fled town ten years ago. But running from her demons has brought Sadie full circle, ready to make a commitment at last. Not to a man, but to a B and B. On Garrett land. Okay, so her plan has a tiny flaw…
Eli works too hard to let a blonde ball of trouble mess up his town. But keeping an eye on Sadie makes it tough to keep his hands off her. And if she’s so wrong for him, why does being with her feel so right?
Part Time Cowboy is book one in the Copper Ridge series. There are three Garrett siblings – Eli, Connor and Kate and the trilogy will obviously be one book per sibling. This was Eli and Sadie’s book.
I originally wasn’t sure how much I was going to like this one because Eli and Sadie argued so much. I didn’t like Beautiful Bastard because of that. But I quickly realized that Eli and Sadie weren’t arguing because they hated each other or because they just wanted to be mean, but because they simply didn’t understand each other at all. Eli is a control freak. He needs to be in control to feel safe and secure. And with his backstory it’s completely understandable. Sadie is the opposite, she is a free spirit who picks up and moves at the drop of a hat. These two have opposite world views and it takes them a while to get in sync.
The story moves well, and it’s impossible not to fall for Eli and Sadie. And it’s fun to watch them fall for each other. They have great backstories, and they deserve their happy ever after ending. I can’t wait to read Connor’s story next.
