ARC Review: Nobody's Cowboy

Nobody's Cowboy by Debra Salonen

Publisher: Tule Publishing Group, 2014

142 pages, kindle edition
Source: Netgalley

Synopsis (from Kindle):

Austen Zabrinski looks the part -- He's got the ranch, the boots, the hat and even a few head of cattle, but everybody in Marietta, Montana, knows the former golden boy of Marietta High is a wealthy politician, not a cowboy. And even though that nasty scandal in Helena might have knocked him down a notch or two in the polls, what kind of fool would trade access to the falls of power in Helena and a Harvard law degree for a ranch in Western Montana? Possibly one whose new neighbor, Serena James -- the woman they guys at Grey Saloon call "...the Red Hot Llama Mama" -- makes him start to think about what he wants out of life, instead of whats expected of him.

Serena James knows trouble when it hops her fence -- Moving to Montana and deleting her blog seemed like the perfect solution to her online stalker problem. Serena's ready for a fresh start, but when her escrow on her ranch falls through, she has to scramble to find a immediate but temporary safe haven to rent for her herd of 50 alpacas, two llamas and one giant dog. Serena's barely moved in when Austen Zabrinski -- the man her landlord called "my absentee ranch owner brother who lives and works in Helena" -- Hops the fence in need of a lift. Even at first glance, Serena can tell he's nobody's cowboy, but who's to say that isn't a good thing? A little tryst with her gorgeous, sexy, here-today-gone-to-Helena-tomorrow neighbor might be the perfect welcome to Montana.

My Review:

Sometimes life gets hard, but going home is what you need to find perspective in life itself.

Austen Zabrinski feels defeated and powerless after his name is tarnished by a scandal. He's home at his ranch, but doesn't have a clue about ranching -- Petty you don't get a ranch manual -- he is just a wealthy so called politician. He has always had someone else to running his ranch.

Nicknamed by the town folk (locals) as "The Red Hot Llama Mama". Miss Serena James has recently rented the ranch she is on to raise her alpacas. She has moved from Cali to Montana to do a start over and hide from a stalker who found her through her blog.

Austen is more then willing to give a helping hand to his pretty neighbor with her chores when her helper doesn't show up for work. Working close together creates an instant attraction between the pair. They give in eventually to their temptation pretty quickly, after just meeting. But will they be able to keep their new found relationship a secret as to not attract any unwanted attention to Serena as she is still trying to keep a very low profile and Austen who is still trying to avoid any more scandals.

My Rating:
