Jason and Meg have a past, one that Jason abandoned thinking it was for Meg's own good. His family is trouble, and because of that he is convinced that he will bring only trouble to anyone he cares about.
Meg hit a bump in the road with her career, so she goes to work at her cousin's ranch (where Jason happens to work) to try to sort out what her next move should be....and to try to get some resolution or answers from Jason as to why he left her so suddenly before.
Of course there is drama when Jason's brother shows up to cause trouble. But that portion didn't overtake the story. It really did a great job of following Jason and Meg as they figured themselves, and each other, out again.
While Jason and Meg’s story is a romance with all the twists and turns involved in sorting out that emotion – it’s also a coming into her own power story for Meg. She’s always been the one to stop fights, never question a decision she doesn’t like, rarely stands up for herself and is indeed a loving, timid kitten. And as we all know, one day kittens grow up. Meg has her moment of enough is enough. She’ll find the courage to redefine herself, to do what is right for her and to get answers from the man she loves, even if he is a stubborn, hardheaded bull at times.
I enjoyed The Cowboy Rides Away on many different levels. It has a little bit of everything that makes a romance a perfect read, for me. Stubborn people, issues to be dealt with, coming into power and touches of danger along with the sexiness. Yep, everything that makes any Jeannie Watt story an auto read for me. I would recommend this story, and the series, for any Romance reader who enjoys a deeper story, believable events, likable characters a touch of danger, and a satisfying ending.
*I received an e-ARC of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley. That does not change what I think of this story. It is my choice to leave a review giving my personal opinion about this book.*
Meg Marvell is the middle child, and she has felt stifled her entire life. She has carefully moderated her behavior, so when cowboy Jason Mann shows an interest in her, she’s secretly delighted. They share a fiery courtship, until Jason abruptly dumps her and leaves town. When she sees him in the local watering hole, she tries to avoid him at first. But then, she is determined to confront him and find out why he left her.
I really liked Meg. She is struggling to overcome her passive nature, and instead of sitting back and waiting for things to happen, she grabs the bull by the horns. In this case, she takes a summer job at her cousins’ ranch, working side by side with Jason. She is going to get to the bottom of their break-up even if it kills her. In order to move on with her life, she needs closure on his desertion. She also needs to assure herself that she’s not the mousy woman who just sits on the sidelines watching everyone else enjoy life. She is going to break free!
Jason I wasn’t too enamored with. His family has issues, and instead of dealing with the drama, he walked out on them, vowing to never return home again. The only problem? They aren’t quite so willing to let him go. When they are short on money, they disrupt Jason’s life, forcing him to pack up and move on, hopefully to somewhere they won’t find him. I just wanted him to say enough is enough and tell them to shove it. Instead, he lets them ruin his relationship with Meg, and when his brother turns up in town, he’s willing to let him ruin it again. Argh!
I find Watt’s writing extremely readable, and I love her depiction of ranch life. I liked the secondary characters, and look forward to catching up with the Marvells in the future.
