Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In this first book of a new cowboy trilogy, prolific author Brown (To Trust) makes plenty of amateur mistakes. Milli Torres returns to her grandfather's Texas ranch only to find that the next door neighbor is the man who fathered her child during a one-night stand two years ago. Beau Lucky Luckadeau is too dense to connect the scrappy cowgirl to a woman he's convinced was only a drunken hallucination. When Beau finds out he's the father of Milli's daughter, the requisite romancing begins. Stock obstacles hinder the relationship, from Beau's gold-digging fiancée to Milli's overly dramatic five-hour flounce off before a country song convinces her to turn around, but the conventional outcome is never in doubt. Shifting points of view and flat characters make this a decidedly subpar addition to the genre. (Sept.)

I had a feeling the book was going to be bad when it opened with the heroine shooting at the dirt near the hero's feet. She was mad because he was offering to help get his prize bull off her family's property. This is a modern day story... not an old west story. People today don't just shoot at each other without facing consequences. Still, I decided to keep trying with the book. It only got worse.

The heroine is the mother of the hero's child, but she never tells him he is the dad. She "doesn't want to share" her daughter and "doesn't want her daughter to have a daddy." She wants to keep the child for herself... as if she has the right to make such a decision. That is basically her attitude through 3/4 of the story. She was more concerned with what she wanted than with her baby's right to know her daddy. More concerned with doing what she wanted than with the fact that he had the right to know and love his daughter. When it all comes out, he is angry but forgives her right away. She takes her daughter and runs off in the middle of the night with the intention of hiding from him forever... WHY? Not because she fears for their safety in any way, in fact he treated them both with total adoration. She runs off because an ex-boyfriend had cheated on her before and she doesn't want to risk that the hero might do the same. Total selfishness. I can't enjoy a story with such an unlikable heroine.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I found the writing to be stilted and disconnected for the first half of the book. Then it seemed another author took over the writing for awhile and then the bad writing was back again.

I seemed like Ms. Brown couldn't go 2 pages without putting in some phrase like 'belongs out here like a horse apple in a church social punch bowl' or 'didn't know straight up from backwards on a sunny day'. She also loves to use the word 'harelipped'. I don't understand why she made all the characters sound like some hick backwoods country people who lived 200 years ago.

This story just didn't flow. And don't get me started on the typos. This story also could have benefited with a few more section breaks. She would be talking about one character and what was going on in their mind and continue right on to another character with no break.

I had a terrible time trying to finish this book. I'm just glad I got it from my local library and didn't fork over $6.99 for it.

I love westerns (historical or modern), but I definitely would not recommend this book to anyone.

The title itself is nice, short, and to the point. However, how many times do I have to read that exact phrase throughout the entire book, mainly spoken or thought by the same characters over and over again. Okay, we understand. He's unlucky in love, hence the title of the novel. However, this is only the beginning. You hear the same words or thoughts repeated over and over again, by more than a few characters. I'm sure we understood the point after the first couple of times. There's too much repetition in this book and, while I understand it to be an important literary device, there is a limit before repetition becomes too much.

*Warning: May Contain Spoilers*

This novel revolves around the couple who engaged in a one-night stand two years ago. The male, Beau Luckadeau, ended up drunk (with a low tolerance for champagne) after his girlfriend chose his cousin over him, so he has no reason to remember the woman he slept with... meaning he spends two years alternately looking for her and deciding that she was just a dream.

Enter Milli Torres, the virgin who was clear-minded when she had the one-night stand with Beau and left the next morning before he awoke. She bore Beau's daughter, Katy. Milli's in Texas to help her grandparents for the summer, as her grandfather just had surgery. She recognizes Beau, but Beau does not recognize her. Despite the growing obviousness that her family knows now who Katy's father is, she refuses to tell Beau the truth until she's "cleared this all out in her head". She's downright selfish, unwilling to share Katy with Beau... even after he finds out the truth.

Milli is a single mother who is staying on her Grandfathers ranch to help him while he recovers from a broken hip. The story begins with Milli having a confrontation with Beau who owns the neighbouring ranch. Milli remembers Beau they had a one night stand some years before, but he does not remember as he was drunk.
This is a very poorly written story. Milli constantly has a bee in her bonnet, and is totally self absorbed and selfish, while Beau just comes across as a dense idiot. The dialogue is so unrealistic, it was like reading a story set in the old west. As for the supporting characters they were no better in fact all the characters in this were just so shallow. Beau's girlfriend Amanda stuck out like a sore thumb in this, she was totally unbelievable, a five year old would have seen through her in five minutes. This is not a book that I would recommend.
