Accidental Cowgirl Review...


ACCIDENTAL COWGIRL
By Maggie McGinnis
On Sale October 8, 2013
ISBN: 978-0-345-54875-7
Published by Loveswept



In her Loveswept debut, Maggie McGinnis tells the tale of a city girl who’s running on fumes—and the cowboy who shows her all the good things she’s been missing.

 After being betrayed by her con man ex-fiancĂ©, Kyla Bennett nurses a broken heart. But Kyla's friends have other ideas and when they whisk her off to Whisper Creek, a dude ranch staffed by cowboys so hot they dim the Montana sunset, all Kyla wants to do is hide under a quilt. Then in rides Decker Driscoll. He’s hauling about as much emotional baggage as Kyla, but when he stands close by, both of them want to stay close—and begin to succumb to an undeniable attraction.

 After experiencing personal tragedy, Decker never thought he’d see Big Sky country again. But now that his family's Whisper Creek property is in deep with a Vegas gambler, Decker’s back for the summer—and spending all his time running from “cowgirls” who come to the dude ranch to score some dudes. Then he meets Kyla, a kindred spirit who brings on a stampede of protective feelings . . . and a powerful hankering to sear her with a new brand of love.

By Ashley:

Maggie wove an intense and fast paced novel with this book.  First thing I have to say however is that I truly hope that a second book is in the works because I feel like there is so much to learn about Decker and Kyla. Kyla is a city girl who is struggling with things that have happened over the last year of her life.  Decker is a country boy who is struggling to come to grips with his past.  Their paths intertwine when Roscoe pulls Kyla over when she gets a flat and has car troubles.

The story takes one crazy twist after another and I struggled to put it down each night.  I came home from work and instead of doing school work I finished the book and I couldn't believe how it ended.  Like I said I really hope there is a second book because I felt that the book left off at a cliff hanger.  It was a great ending but it just kind of left you wanting more.

The characters and the writing were both exceptional.  The story held it's own with each and every twist it took.  I would highly recommend this book to everybody who wants a gripping tale of heart ache turned happy ending.

Rating:

5 out of 5 stars
