Okay I read A LOT of books and this one is by far one of the worst I have ever read.

This book sounded good when I read the description but actually reading the "book" made my head hurt. It started off good and then it was like the writer had ADD. One minute the main character was cussing and the next she was saying really juvenile things like snot and girlie-man. For example, the following is from when she is fighting a guy after he attacks her and shoots her dog.

"Take that, you stupid sonofabitch!" Sam screamed at him. "You shot my dog and now you're going to pay, you, you girlie-man!"

Too many people in the story that are not really relevant. Then the writer throws in another man named Luke towards the end, just to take up pages? I don't know. This book had potential to be good but it just wasn't what it could have been.

I don't know why I finished it, maybe I was hoping for it to get better and now my head just hurts.

Good thing it was free. I will most definitely NOT be reading anything from this author again.

When I first started reading, I hoped the story would get better. It didn't; it got worse. Samantha and Isabella, Sam's best friend, sounded immature and slutty, with statements like, "Omigod! You've got the hots for Cheyenne Wells" and "Damn right I'm pissed. Who said he could grow up to be an Aztec God?" There was definitely an overuse of "sh*t." All this bad language didn't just happen in the dialogue but also in the narrative. The book is filled with it. In addition to being loaded with profanity, the characters do a lot of drinking and clichés are overused. Sam seems very self-centered and doesn't seem to have the education it would take for a veterinarian. There were also some facts and happenings in the story I questioned. Would one puppy's rabies shot be enough to protect an adult? Sam slathers her tamales with green chili [sic], but it didn't say anything about her unwrapping them first. Samonella is a bacteria and not a virus. There were missing commas and characters who had no purpose in the story. Even the ending was a let down. It ends so that the reader knows who has ended up with Sam, but the story just stops there. If you are a romantic, you will have to use your imagination if there's to be a commitment or what's to happen beyond the let's-get-together. I feel I wasted my time on this one. It was too trashy for me.

This was an Amazon freebie I picked up because I was in the mood for a cowboy quickie. Turns out this is a sweet romantic suspense story by new author Carolyn Anderson Jones. I enjoyed everything about this story except the title. I was expecting something completely different. Blame it on Lorelei James. What I did get was an interesting group of characters, a mystery and some sweet romance. I encourage you to give this a try. I will be looking for more by this author.

Samantha Kendrick is a large animal vet in a small town in Colorado. Cheyenne Wells is a horse trainer for the biggest spread in the area. Sam & Cheyenne have been fussin' and feudin' at each other since he pulled her ponytail in the first grade and she punched him back. Now years later Sam has to help him find out who has been poisoning the horses in his care and try to figure out what to do with the attraction that has grown between them. After all this time, whoda thunk.

I am usually very forgiving when it comes to free kindle books, but this book was a waste. The only reason I even finished it was because it was almost funny to see how much worse it got chapter after chapter. The entire story was unrealistic from every angle. On top of the grammer mistakes, poor writing, and lack of actual plot development, it was packed full of obvious mistakes about the story line. Anyone with even limited science education or knowledge of horses / farms would easily catch mistake after mistake, such as saying that calves were "foaled" (when calves are born its called calving, horses are foaled), and that Salmonella is a virus (it's a bacteria).

I love new writers! I am always pleased to encourage new writing talent. Cowgirl Up is a great mystery novel while also learning about horses! Even you have always wanted a horse and who dose'nt want one as a child growing up. It has enough spicey romance and mystery to keep the page turning until the very end. It's a real good read!!!!!

I haven't read a book this good that held my attention like "Cowgirl Up" in a very long time. The content kept you into what was happening and wanting to know more. Kept you wondering right to the end. Loved the romance between Sam and Cheyenne. I think a sequel would be great. I'm a Texan and alot of the book hit close to home. Great job!

I was really disappointed with this book. It was just not well written. The story l I be was good and would have been a great read but it was choppy and jumpy. It just didn't flow. Like I said, it would have been a great story but the writing was not done well.

I got this as a freebie on Kindle. Glad it was free because I would have been mad had I paid for it. The storyline could have made for a great read, but it was very choppy. The story jumped around, and the title is misleading. I understand to "cowgirl up" is to put on your big girl panties and deal with stuff, but this was more like a mystery/romance, not someone overcoming anything. She's a vet, who owned a horse in the past and is going to again. She's not particularly a cowgirl. In any case, I think the author could have done a much better job digging more into a few parts of the story and not so much on the characters going out to eat all the time. It jumped around a lot and ended very abruptly. There was at least one major matter to conclude, if not a few other smaller ones. With the introduction of so many miscellaneous characters, it made for a messy read. There was also a mix on the character's personality. Sometimes she was strong, sometimes she was a little immature. Not a personality you would think of for a vet. Sometimes she'd say "oh s*** for really stupid reasons and the next minute she was using dang-gonnit type words. Not very consistent.

From the description of this book, I was excited to read it. While the author did present a romantic suspense of sorts, I was bored. Had we seen the heroine do her job as a vet, I would have felt more connected to her. As it was, we only got a glimpse or two and then a the end when almost an entire page is given to the syringes of muscle relaxers in her pocket and what the medicine does, it was a dead give away to later events. I also couldn't keep the characters straight and agree with other reviewers that the introduction of a new man late in the book was annoying more than anything else.
