Escaping her life in Manhattan, Cassandra Horn is headed to Wyoming. Cass works as a personal assistant to Rose Gramercy, a demanding and successful fashion model. That's not the reason Cass has left Manhattan for Wyoming. Her reason is Rose's boyfriend, actor Ken Wallis. Cass has two weeks to figure out what to do about her current situation, while staying at her family's cabin. Her getaway doesn't go as planned, and Eli finds her crashed car off the side of the road. Eli doesn't have time for unexpected company, let alone injured company. Things go from bad to worse when it's revealed that Cass has no memory of where she was going or who she is. The snow is falling pretty hard, with no end in sight, and it looks as though they are stuck with each other until it lets up. Eli and Cass are instantly attracted to each other, but neither let's on. Cass is strong, confident and gorgeous. Eli is a ruggedly handsome cowboy and as the days pass, they become closer. Sparks fly and feelings grow. Cass' memory is still patchy but she is slowly remembering. She loves the life she's been living with Eli, but somewhere in her memory there's a man...and he's not Eli.
I LOVED EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS BOOK ! 💕 AN AMAZING STORY WITH WELL WRITTEN, LIKEABLE CHARACTERS THAT WILL KEEP YOU INVESTED UNTIL THE VERY LAST PAGE ! UNDENIABLE ATTRACTION AND INTENSE CRAVING THAT COULD NOT BE DENIED ! ! ! AWESOME READ FROM START TO FINISH ! ! !
It's that time of year again when I want to read all things Christmas (and I even find myself more inclined to just veg out in front of the tv watching cheesy movies as well), so I was excited to be able to guarantee a copy of this book and dive right in to the holiday spirit. Unfortunately, this book failed to completely live up to my expectations.
First of all, it was severely lacking in the Christmas spirit. Eli doesn't have fond memories of the holidays, so he just has no intention of celebrating, and Cass is not really in a position to do much to bring Christmas spirit to the ranch since they're snowed in through the holiday. Even after Eli begrudgingly allows Cass to use Maria's decorations to add some festivity to the ranch house, the spirit is still lacking, so it didn't really feel much like a cheesy Christmas novel to me.
Second of all, it didn't fall into any of the classic tropes that I tend to associate with holiday romances (and I fully understand that that will be viewed as a positive thing by some people, but I personally want my holiday stories trope-y). Because Cass has lost her memory and is basically helpless after her wreck, Eli doesn't really get mad at her for ANYTHING. He doesn't tell her to stop feeding the dogs table scraps, he just cleans up the huge messes she makes in the kitchen, and he doesn't even resent her just a little bit for taking his bed which leaves him sleeping on the too-short-for-him couch. I think I would have enjoyed this story better if she'd been mildly banged up, but still stuck at the ranch because of the snow, and they'd been at each other's throats first: she's annoyed because she's trapped on this ranch with a strange guy instead of alone at her family's cabin, and he's irate because she's less than useless on a ranch and just adding to his already full workload for the holidays. (That would be classic holiday romance trope.)
So those were the problems I had with the story. But the story wasn't all bad. For one thing, Eli is a truly good guy. He is so worried about not becoming a #MeToo story for Cass, that he doesn't even want to let her know that he's attracted to her. This led to some frustration on my part because he just needed to tell her, but it also made me like him more and hope for him and Cass to eventually hook up. And once things started moving along in the romance department for Eli and Cass, I started to enjoy the story more, but only as a standard romance (it still didn't feel holiday romance-like to me).
Overall I give All I Want for Christmas is a Cowboy 3.0487 stars because it didn't satisfy my holiday cravings at all, but the romance itself was decent.

Christmas Romance Cliché #7 if I'm not mistaken. Jessica Clare gives us two likable characters in an angsty slow-burn romance. I smiled at the appropriate places, said "Awwww" at the ranch animals and tutted at how many rom-com issues could be averted if people would learn to speak. to. each. other. But I had fun doing it.
3.5 Christmas stars. Worth reading. I'll probably grab the next book next Christmas :)
