Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Brown's sixth Spikes & Spurs erotic western romance (after Mistletoe Cowboy) sets up immediate physical attraction between bronc riders Gemma O'Donnell and Trace Coleman. Both plan to win the national buckle in Las Vegas come December. He needs the money to buy his uncle's ranch, even though his uncle wants to give it to him; her goal is to be the second woman saddle-bronc-riding champion. Thousands of miles and a handful of rodeos separate them from their dreams. On the road, they tumble from her trailer to his in hot scenes, but romance and tension are missing. An episodic stop taking care of kids at a dude ranch pads the book. Gemma's calls and visit home between rodeos help keep series readers up to date, but new readers will be lost. Brown peppers the story with references to country singers, but even popular lyrics can't save this rapidly dwindling series. Agent: Erin Niumata, Folio Literary Management. (Dec.)

From Booklist

Gemma O’Donnell leases her hair salon in a small Texas town for a year to pursue her dream of winning the ProRodeo buckle for bronc riding. She has stiff competition on the circuit, especially from Trace Coleman. The last thing she needs is to be distracted by a strong mutual attraction to him. But the nomadic life brings them together into a sizzling romance. Brown unites them emotionally through a variety of situations, including chaperoning teens and caring for a baby. The rodeo generates enough conflicts to keep the romantic tension going and provides a unique setting and theme, the trials of a woman competitor. But readers will most enjoy seeing Gemma and Trace come together as a realistic couple. Brown fills a gap for readers who want sensual but not erotic romance with a good story and likable characters. Her books will continue to be popular with her fans and with readers of Linda Lael Miller. --Amy Alessio

Anything you can do, I can do better... or at least when it comes to bronc riding.

I know when I read a book by Carolyn Brown, I'm in for a treat. The writing flows and the words leap from the pages. I'm immersed in the world of the characters and tend to finish the book in one sitting. The same was the case for Just a Cowboy and His Baby. I devoured this book in what seemed like no time at all and thought about the characters after I put the book down.

Here's my quandary. I liked this book. I did. But for me there were aspects that tripped me up. I love animals and I tend to talk to all four of mine. When Trace talked to his dog like it was a person, I got him. Totally. But there were moments when he went on a long time. Was this bad? Not really, but it stuck with me and temporarily ripped me out of the story. Another thing was Gemma. She talked to herself a lot, too. Seeing as how I tend to talk myself through things, I could relate to her. What I had a hard time with was her overwhelming determination to be the best. Be the best, by all means, but she went overboard. Everything had to be her way and she had to win. I like strong women, but there's strong, then there's so strong I wanted her to break a bit.

Still, this book has lots of good points. The writing is solid and the storyline is fantastic. I felt the connection between Gemma and Trace and rooted for them to have their HEA. The scenes in the arena are vivid. I've never been to a bronc riding show, but I feel like I have.

If you want a book that's the right mix of sugar, spice and broncs, then this might be the book for you!

Just A Cowboy and his Baby by Carolyn Brown,
I like the plot and the characters Just A Cowboy and his baby. Did not like the swearing and all the sex and sex talk. Thier was a lot of this story I just skipped over. I liked the humor. That Gemma was riding bronks in the rodeo. Thing that made me mad was the guy putting the drug in the drink.
Gemma O'Donnell is a hair dresser who just started riding full time as a rodeo Bronc
riding. Her goal is to be the second bronc riding champion. Gemma comes from a big family and she is the youngest in her family. She has to wear her lucky pink cowboy boots and a few other things that bring her luck.
Her sister-in-law told her fortune that she would get a cowboy and a baby for christmas.
Trace Coleman is leading so far in money and standings. He plans to win the National bronc riding in Vegas this year and with the purse buy his Uncle's ranch. Trace has been watching Gemma for awhile but has not met her or competed against her till now.
He makes a mistake by helping her climb into the shute.
Then Gemma blows him a kiss. She has a hard time getting her mind in the game. Neither one wants the distraction to get in thier way.
Then at a dance after the rodeo someone drugs her drink right after she drinks it Trace asks her to dance. After her two beers she is drunk and Trace takes her to his trailer when he can't get her to wake. He realizes she must have been drugged so he watches her instead of putting her in her trailer.
After that they start following each other to rodeo to another and come close fast.
I like Gemma's personality. I would love to see if Trace's cousins have thier own story.
I was given this ebook to read in exchange for honest review from Netgalley.

I received an e-galley of Just A Cowboy And His Baby from NetGalley for an honest review.

This is the sixth book in the series and the one I was most anticipating. Gemma is one of my favorite characters in the other books and I couldn't wait to get to her story. Let's just say there was absolutely no disappointment with this story.

In fact, it was better than I expected. Talk about unique. How many stories have you read that the heroine is a rodeo cowgirl? I don't mean barrel racing competitor. Nope, Gemma is a bronc rider. And a good one at that. Probably more than anything else, that was my favorite thing about this story. Gemma is the star and she's paving her own way in a man's world. Trace is a great hero for her. He's at the top of the standings as well, and just as fiercely competitive as Gemma. These two have no problem going toe to toe. The back and forth between them is perfect. It makes the story entertaining and keeps you turning the page.

When I first learned of the baby being added to the plot I was a little wary. How would that work in a rodeo setting? Would it come across as cliche? I shouldn't have worried. After reading as many books by Carolyn Brown as I can get my hands on, I should have known she'd handle a situation like these with finesse. There was nothing cliche about it, and she made it seem absolutely believeable being on the circuit with a new baby in tow. While reading about their trials and errors I had to chuckle because I knew the feeling. It was relateable and sweet.

Just A Cowboy And His Baby has humor, romance, sugar and spice. It's got cowboys, cowgirls, adorable babies and a heart-warming story. Don't miss this one or any of the other Spikes and Spurs series!
