Blog Tour/Review ♥ Part Time Cowboy by Maisey Yates ♥ #giveaway $25 GC

 Part Time Cowboy by Maisey Yates 
(Copper Ridge #1) 
Published by: Harlequin
Publication date: March 31st 2015
Genres: Contemporary, Romance


A one-time bad girl comes home to small-town Oregon in the first in a sexy, heartfelt new series from USA TODAY bestselling author Maisey Yates…

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?

A Review by Wendy

4 Maybe you Can Go Home Again Stars 
* * * *

We all do stuff growing up...that is how we learn...for good or bad. Sometimes the lessons are not what they should be...but we experience them anyway. We start to realize maybe we need to stop doing knee jerk reactions and living up to how we have been classified from those past lessons...see who we really are for ourselves. That, I think, is the challenge and part of everyone's life at one time of the other.

In this engaging tale, we have the perfect who was deemed wild, carefree and trouble... and the other who decided to have her young actions looked upon negatively by arresting her. Both have history now set in stone...and not complimentary.

Sadie Miller has decided to stop the running in her head and life. It has been quite some time; she has finally decided she will return to the "scene of the Crime" and come home. There is a purpose, though....she aims to establish a B and B. Make it fresh, not dowdy... and plant her roots for good. This was her home... and it will be again.

Eli Garrett has never left Cooper Mountain for good...He had to take up responsibilities way before his time making him into a very  practical, purposeful, focused man. He runs his ranch and also has continued to be the lawman. He is set to handle a campaign, has no time for anything to get in his way and feelings or complications be damn.

We have the perfect confrontation for these two...Sadie's B and B is on Eli's land. Delicious.  We are flies on the wall to both humor, banter, frustration, compassion, hurt and then a coming together. Both of these two have to take the time to work it all out... to breakdown the patterns and assumptions of who they think the other person is... and let their true selves come through. This gives the reader a slow burn and lots of escalating steam. Again, Delicious.

In this story we have a woman who is a strong character and easily liked. She stands tall, no matter what. Eli... is a little more distant but when he finally figures out what is important and what he needs to feel... it all comes together.

This is the first installment and the upcoming books look to be winners if the same heart and care are there...I have no doubt they will be.



USA Today Bestselling author Maisey Yates lives in rural Oregon with her three children and her husband, whose chiseled jaw and arresting features continue to make her swoon. She feels the epic trek she takes several times a day from her office to her coffee maker is a true example of her pioneer spirit.

In 2009, at the age of twenty-three Maisey sold her first book. Since then it’s been a whirlwind of sexy alpha males and happily ever afters, and she wouldn’t have it any other way. Maisey divides her writing time between dark, passionate category romances set just about everywhere on earth and light sexy contemporary romances set practically in her back yard. She believes that she clearly has the best job in the world.
