This cowboy's handsome, sexy, and definitely off limits . . .
Walker Everett spends his days at the Crossroads Ranch wrangling cattle---and steering clear of anything that would complicate his already too-complicated life. Until Violet Chastain, the ranch's newest employee, asks him to pretend to be her boyfriend for her parents' anniversary party. She's the most beautiful woman he's ever met and needs his help. How can he refuse?

Violet isn't about to fall for a brooding bad-boy cowboy, no matter how sizzling their chemistry. But she also never expected Walker to go along with the charade. Before long, he's charming her parents at their weekly dinners and kissing her way more than necessary. Spending so much time together tests the limits of their "just friends" relationship, but what happens when their game of pretend becomes all too real?

Includes the bonus story Rocky Mountain Cowboy by Sara Richardson!

A.J Pine Hard Loving ...

A.J Pine "Hard Loving Cowboy" was a wholesome, heartwarming tale about opposites-attract that started off with a kiss. There was just something unique about this series that made it impossible not to finish it in one sitting. The way the author was able to mesh the characters together and not rush their bubbling relationship and pending romance won me over, and it was towards the end when they admitted their feelings for each other. I immediately loved the lead characters Walker and Violet. One hand you have a recovering alcoholic and another, the smart wine expert that dropped everything to help her aiding mother. Overall, a delightful read that left me wanting more.

Typically, I am not the biggest fan of the fake relationship trope but in Hard Loving Cowboy I found that I was loving it! The introduction between Walker and Violet was quite hilarious and completely unanticipated. Neither Violet nor Walker were looking for any complications in their lives. In fact, Violet's life was as complicated as she could handle but when Walker had given her a lift home after quite an eventful day, she found herself in an unexpected predicament. Walker did come to the rescue and they agreed to a ruse that was supposed to be for one night only but both of them found that one night would never be enough. What developed between Walker and Violet was a slow build romance but it had its explosive moments both romantically and personally. There was much that these characters were dealing with and having a relationship was not something either of them felt would be good for them. Despite their reservations, there was something deep inside that called to the other and they just weren't able to stay away from each other. Not only was there an amazing romance in this story but it also exhibited wonderful friendships as well as deep family bonds. Hard Loving Cowboy was not your light and fluffy type of romance, there were dark moments, love that was fought for, and plenty of heat! This review is based on a complimentary book I received from NetGalley. It is an honest and voluntary review. The complimentary receipt of it in no way affected my review or rating.
