"A strong, silent, swoon-worthy cowboy hero and a romance that’s the perfect mix of sexy and sweet!"

Romance Western

THE COWBOY MEETS HIS MATCH is the fourth book in Jessica Clare’s “Wyoming Cowboys” contemporary romance series set in the small town of Painted Barrel, Wyoming. In the previous book, Becca’s longtime boyfriend had ditched her a few days before their wedding would have been. In THE COWBOY MEETS HIS MATCH, it’s been about two years since “the wedding that wasn’t”. Becca is trying to move on, but it’s difficult to when well-wishing townspeople over her sympathy and advice at every turn. She wants to appear like the strong independent woman she is, but all the fussing makes her feel like a loser at times. I appreciate a realistically flawed heroine. Into her beauty salon walks Hank Watson and his 4-yr old daughter Libby and it seems like fate.

I love books set in small towns and this book shows the best and worst things about living in one. When Becca initially asks Hank out on a date, he turns her down because he doesn’t think the offer is legit. If you like strong, silent heroes and single fathers – this is a good story for you. Hank puts off some confusing vibes for Becca, but that’s because he doesn’t have much experience with romance. Becca, and her interest in him, is a little befuddling for this hero. Although he’s a little slow on the uptake, once he gets on the same page as Becca, Hank pulls the gentleman cowboy full court press on her. Hank is the complete antithesis of her ex – hardworking, determined, honest, unselfish, and with the body of a hottie from all his chores. When Becca first meets Hank, he seems like a physical embodiment of the Paul Bunyan myth with his dark beard, stature, and his being a man who recently came from roughing it in the Alaskan wilderness. Hanks courtship of Becca and the bond that develops between them and his daughter is charming.

THE COWBOY MEETS HIS MATCH has a strong, silent, swoon-worthy cowboy hero and a romance that’s the perfect mix of sexy and sweet. The supporting characters in this book help define the two main characters and the dynamics of their relationship. I look forward to reading more about Hank’s brothers in future books. I love Jessica Clare’s books and I eagerly await her next one!

SUMMARY

A cowboy is in over his head in this contemporary Western from New York Times bestselling author Jessica Clare.

Single father Henry "Hank" Watson is a fresh transplant from Alaska to Painted Barrel, Wyoming. He doesn't want anything more from life than to put in a good day's work, then go home to his daughter, Libby. But when Libby needs some emergency work done on her curls thanks to a gum incident, Hank's out of his depth. He takes his daughter into town where he meets Becca, the local salon owner.

Becca's still nursing a broken heart after her ex dangled marriage in front of her, then bailed a few days before the wedding. She's done with men...or so she thinks. When she meets Hank and his little girl, she realizes that they need her help with more than just hair. It's clear they both need a woman in their lives. 

Everyone in town believes Hank is too gruff for someone as sweet as Becca. But what they don't understand is that he makes Becca feel loved. She can see a future with him and his adorable daughter...if they don't move back to Alaska.
