MUST LOVE COWBOYS is the third installment in the Cowboy
Heaven series by Cheryl Brooks. Cheryl Brooks endows
MUST LOVE COWBOYS with the same erotic splendor she
does with all her books, but "family" is another strong
theme in this particular story. Tina Hayes goes from
being virtually all alone in the world after the death of
her ailing grandfather, to being enveloped by a makeshift
family of hot cowboys.
When Tina travels to Wyoming to give her grandad's old
army buddy his letters, it seems as though fate has
landed her at the right place at exactly the right time.
The people at the Circle Bar K Ranch make her feel needed
and very much wanted. The flirty sexy fun with
cowboy in particular—is a big draw to Tina.
After being focused on school, work, and caring for her
aging grandfather for so long, it is here at the ranch
where she finally gets in touch with her sexual self.
Tina is the kind of self-aware, strong, realistic female
character I enjoy reading about. Although Nick and Dean
are super sexy and entertaining to be around, it's
strong, silent, former-fireman-turned-cowboy Wyatt who
drives Tina crazy. I love the slow burn of desire between
Tina and Wyatt. With each glance and touch, the
sensuality is kicked up another notch until they give in
to their feelings for each other. The chemistry between
Tina and Wyatt is fierce, and I like the friendship they
develop as an important component of the romance.
In addition to the luscious romance, MUST LOVE COWBOYS
offers a tantalizing mystery for readers to sink their
teeth into. The villain and exact nature of his wrong-
doing is ambiguous, but almost from the beginning it is
obvious to residents of the Circle Bar K Ranch that
something is very wrong. I love how Tina is able to work
on the mystery with Wyatt and, eventually, the rest of
the crew. In spite of being swimming in testosterone, all
the men at the ranch respect Tina's intelligence and
opinions. The light-hearted and friendly atmosphere at
the ranch balances out the sense of menace. The
resolution at the end makes sense and Cheryl Brooks gets
there with flair.
MUST LOVE COWBOYS is a smorgasbord of hot cowboys with a
healthy dollop of succulent romance and intriguing
mystery. For your next book-induced vacation, check out
the Circle Bar K Ranch. The romance and mystery are
enough to make this book stand out, but it's the fun,
laid-back attitude and feeling of comradery that makes
MUST LOVE COWBOYS, and this series, extra special. I look
forward to the next book by Cheryl Brooks, and hope to
see Dean or Nick each get their own book.
