Review

"Brown revitalizes the western romance with this fresh, funny, and sexy tale filled with likable, down-to-earth characters." - Booklist

"What an absolutely adorable story... This book will have you laughing so hard you'll develop a stitch in your side and then the next minute you'll be tearing up at how romantic something is. I" - The Romance Studio

"Brown's delightful romance... keeps the reader on their toes. 4 Stars" - RT Book Reviews

Peopled with quirky characters and full of sassy fun, this book will leave readers smiling.

Carolyn Brown knows how to bring small towns and their infamous gossip chains to life in her book.

A fast, funny, sexy read.

Love Drunk Cowboy is right on par with everything else [Carolyn Brown] writes. I was unable to put the book down.

I want a cowboy of my own! This book was easy to read and it left me with a smile on my face.

Fun, witty and easy to enjoy... you can't help but wish for your own piece of country life.

Ms. Brown is able to capture the essence of each character in such a way that you feel like you know them and just have to know what is going to happen next.

Love Drunk Cowboy is the first book in the "Spikes and Spurs" series by Carolyn Brown. It is set in present day Texas with a western theme involving Austin and Rye. Austin inherits her Grandmother's watermelon farm but wants to sell it and return to the city life. All it takes is one look at Rye and she thinks that farm life might be the life she has been missing.

I actually liked this book! I loved Rye and Austin as a couple. They were fun, witty and easy to enjoy. As you read about their journey, you can't help but wish for your own piece of country life just so you can have as much spark as these two!

While at times, Austin acts as though she has forgotten her city smarts, fans of Western Romance will more than likely enjoy this new series. If you are a fan of the author, I am sure you will want to pick up this new series as well. Sit back, turn on the music of Watermelon Crawl by Tracy Byrd, and enjoy the fun new series by an author who brings the spark to the genre of Western Romance!

Love Drunk Cowboy is the first book I've read by Carolyn Brown. I started the book not knowing what to expect. The story was cute enough but I thought the premise was not original. Former country girl turned city girl returns to her roots felt like something I've read before. Austin and Rye's relationship was cute but not hot and spicy. Because Rye traveled a lot, their relationship was conducted mostly over the phone. I think this led to the relationship lacking heat in my opinion. I liked the townspeople who were nice and fun with their gossiping ways. It seems to be standard in these type of books.

Love Drunk Cowboy was just okay for me. The premise was not original. I felt that the plot followed the standard contemporary romance formula. It didn't offer too much in regards to originality and surprises. I felt there was too much dialog and the country-isms were distracting. I'm from the South and know that southern folk speak a certain way, but I don't necessarily want to read it.

If you like cutesy western romance, then Love Drunk Cowboy is for you. It didn't work for me. I guess I'm not a fan of "cute and sweet".

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Austin Lanier is an oil executive in Tulsa. Her mother has always encouraged her to put her career first and focus on working her way to the top.

Rye O'Donnell is a cowboy through and through - he owns a ranch, raises bulls, and rides in the rodeo.

When Austin's grandmother dies, she leaves her a watermelon farm and very specific funeral instructions. Austin goes out to Terral, Texas to carry out her grandmother's wishes, and she meets Rye, who lives across the street from her grandmother's farm. Rye was friendly with Austin's grandmother, and after her death Austin and Rye spoke on the phone, but Austin assumed he was an older man in his 70s, not a 32-year-old hunky cowboy.

Austin's intention is to clear out her grandmother's home, sell the farm, and move back to Tulsa, but it her plans keep leading her back towards Terral: There's migrant workers who depend on working the farm, a watermelon winery that's a surprise to Austin, and she can't stop thinking about that sexy cowboy right across the street.

My thoughts: Love Drunk Cowboy was pretty cute. I liked both Austin and Rye, and their chemistry was good. I loved how various scenarios made it seem that Austin's grandmother was pushing them together from the grave. The townsfolk were friendly and fun (the workings of the gossip mill had me smiling), and I enjoyed reading Austin's struggle between her corporate career and small-town living. While I liked Rye's family, I didn't care for Austin's mother and aunts - they seemed one-dimensional and flat. Austin's obsession with Rye's tattoo drove me up a wall, I think it was mentioned at least a dozen times.

Here is a perfect example of where the cover, book blurb and title of the book made me purchase.

I am not even writing a review for the blog on this one. The first 20% of the book was pretty good and I was thinking it was a winner but it started going on and on and on about the attraction they had towards one another. Seriously nothing else was happening.
Then around 30% I was getting really bored. Austin has a hissy fit because he made a joke about her mother (it was truly in jest) and she flies off the handle at his parents home like a twelve year old. She decides to walk home 7 miles in heels. I rolled my eyes.

I also kept getting confused with her name being Austin and then the story takes place in Texas.

Rye started out to me attractive and cowboy hunky but then he went all wussy. Here is an example: "He slapped his thigh and turned around three time in the motel room. She cared enough to worry about him!"
I like my cowboys alpha. Not giddy like a school boy from a 1950's movie.

I figured I had read enough and stopped at about 40%. It takes a lot for me to stop reading a book but I couldn't put up with the old fashion immature characters. I don't mind "sweet" stories but this one was over top.

Nah. This couldn't hold my interest for more than a few minutes at a time. In the end I decided I had many much more interesting and promising looking books in my to read pile. The front cover and comments on it look more promising than the story actually is.
