Loved these characters!! Rock is just so hunky and a very giving person. Quinn is a single mom but very independent and her son, Max is her number one. Max just steals the story, I just fell in love with him.
This story will leave you smiling, ok I did shed a tear or two. I highly recommend this book.
Caught Up in a Cowboy is book one in the brand new series, Cowboys of Creedence by Jennie Marts. I have read several of Jennie’s books and never fail to fall in love with her characters. I was especially excited about this new series and it most definitely did not disappoint.
Rockford James and Quinn Rivers had grown up together, their ranches neighboring each other. They were high school sweethearts, each other’s first loves, first everythings. They knew each other so well, they could finish each other’s sentences, always knew what the other was thinking. Rock had an early on talent for ice hockey. As soon as he strapped on his first pair of skates, he knew it was where he belonged. So, it wasn’t a surprise that he was offered a hockey scholarship. He can blame it on being a dumb, immature kid, but his ego was bigger than his brain. He thought he had the world by the tail. That he was more important than this little town he grew up in, and that bigger things awaited him. So he left the love of his life behind when he went off to college.
Quinn had loved Rock with everything she had. He owned her heart, and then he broke her heart. She was young and stupid and thought she was getting even when she had a one night stand. She thought she could make him jealous and that he would come back. But instead, she ended up pregnant. That was nine years ago. Now she had an eight year old son, Max, who was the best thing in her world. He made it all worth it. She still lived on the ranch with her Dad and brother. Max’s father wants nothing to do with them. That’s fine with her. She thought she was doing fine, until Rock came back, bringing with him all those old feelings she thought she’d gotten over. It turns out, that she’d never really be over him, never really stop loving him.
“They said that forgiveness could set you free. Whoever the elusive ‘they’ were. But had they had their hearts broken by the guy they thought they were going to spend the rest of their lives with? It sounded so easy.”
Rock is now in the NHL and is one of his team’s best players. But he’s been injured and sent home to recuperate. He’s not that same kid that left here nine years ago. He has always known that giving Quinn up was the worst mistake of his life. Now is his chance to get her to forgive him, maybe give them a second chance. While getting to know Quinn again, he also had the chance to get to know her son, Max. He was a fantastic kid and he fell in love with him as much as he already was with his mother.
“You still have it, you know. No matter where I’ve been, or what stupid decisions I’ve made, my heart has always belonged to you.”
As Quinn and Rock spent time together, Quinn was slowly able to forgive Rock. But what happens when he’s able to go back to the team? Is there room in his life for them? Or will he leave them again, just like before? Now it’s not only her heart she has to think of but her son’s as well.
What a great start to this series! Little Max kind of stole the show for me. He was amazing. Rockford was everything you could hope for in a cowboy/hockey star. Sexy, swoony, sweet, especially with Max. But also he has the temper to go with it. Don’t cross him and ESPECIALLY don’t hurt the people he loves. Quinn is doing her best to hang on, raising her son, helping with the ranch. She had long since given up on finding love again, especially with Rock. Will these two get their second chance at love? Or will this just be a short reminder of what they could have had before real life returns? I really enjoyed this and can’t wait to see what comes next with this series. I loved both of these families and the ways the two ranches have come together. I especially hope to get some glimpses into Quinn and Rock’s lives in future books!
Right from the start, Quinn and Rock met back up. It was hilarious, yet at the same time there was a lot of other emotions mixed in too. You see, Rock broke Quinn's heart 9 years ago. They were High School sweethearts who planned to spend their future together. But when Rock pursued his hockey career, he left Quinn in the dust. And with Quinn feeling bitter and upset, she had a one night stand which left her pregnant and alone. As years passed, Quinn and Rock ran into each other but it was always a tense and brief hello. But not anymore. Rock suffered an injury while playing for the NHL and he's back home on an extended break.
Through a fun turn of events, Rock found himself back in Quinn's life. And the chemistry between the two of them was definitely still there. You could feel it every time they were near each other. Even if Quinn still held her anger in a death grip, ha! And while I loved watching the tension between them build, I also loved how easily their friendship restarted. It was filled with honesty, teasing and it all felt so simple and heartfelt. Ohhh and I loved, loved, loved how quickly Rock and Max bonded. Max is Quinn's eight year old son and he was seriously the most adorable child ever. He made me laugh and smile so much. I loved how much heart he brought to the story! And while I watched them all interact, I started to imagine what they would be like. As a real family.
So while Quinn and Rock grew closer, I got Quinn's uncertainty. She'd been left and heartbroken by him in the past. And everyone knew that once Rock was healed, he was heading back to the NHL. Quinn tried her hardest to protect her heart, but Rock was persistent.... I loved that about him! Just you wait and see all that he does, sigh. But Rock definitely had some growing up to do and I loved how much he progressed as the story unfolded. He gained so much wisdom and insight being back home and I was so proud of him. It left me with a lot of faith, and I could easily see Quinn and Rock getting their happily ever after. Well that was until a different variable stepped in......the suspense was a lot of fun! I can't say anything more, other than I was impressed with how it all played out!
Caught Up in a Cowboy was such an adorable story! There were a few cheesy moments in the beginning, but it was definitely warranted. All I can say is birthday party and pirates.....it made me laugh and smile. And if you're a fan of families playing an integral part in stories, you're in for a treat. I absolutely loved both of their families and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that their brothers will get their own stories down the road. So if you love second chance romance, with family thrown in the mix, definitely check out Caught Up in a Cowboy! It was such a cute story and I'm looking forward to the future books in this series!
