Finally, I have to mention the playlist in the back of the book. I'm a huge fan of all music and have a tendency to connect songs to stories. I loved listening to these songs after reading Drawn to a Cowboy and remembering Sage and Jade's journey to their HEA. I only wish I had known about it up front so I could have listened before I read it. The playlist really gets you in the country frame of mind and helps with some of the song references throughout the book.
I loved the premise of the chance meeting of two people, who really were predestined to be together. It's not an instalove story but definitely a mutual attraction that grows rapidly. The hero, Sage, was born and bred in the city but always longed for the country life. Through a chance stay with his family as a child, he fell in love with the dude ranch that his parents took him to and the people there that eventually became the family of his heart. Returning every summer the young Sage impressed the owner, Hank, so much that he left the ranch to him after years of working together. However, greed and deceit threaten Sage and his beloved ranch and his past keeps his heart behind some pretty high walls.
Jade is the granddaughter of movie cowboy royalty, as well as an artist that was tossed out of a commissioned job by a corporate takeover. Upset and cursing a blue streak, Sage sees the crayon-red haired beauty at a gas station and offers her a job at his ranch, painting for the various buildings. Both characters question their sanity about the arrangement: he could be a crazy serial killer and she could be a psycho. However, Jade always dreamed of having a cowboy of her own, so she decides to take a chance.
Life at the ranch is filled with push and pull between Jade and Sage. The secrets that are revealed I truly did not see coming. Ok, I saw part of them, but the twists at the end made the story that much more enjoyable. There are great secondary characters in the story, Spencer, Sage's twin is a foodie coming off a failed marriage. Norma and Clay the couple that has worked at the ranch for years, and Norma's unsolicited advice is a great addition. Jade's friend, Lark, her vagabond mother, Jinxie, and her grandparents, Tex and Bonnie are all excellent secondary characters.
I found a richness in the character development and backstory that really enhanced the story for me. The story was well paced and fun to read. Ms. Flowers use of language is unique and I loved some of her phrases, like "my lower thinking cap." lol I want to paint in a barn and be interrupted by a sexy cowboy to the point where I would never look at a paintbrush the same again. The story has chemistry, a great plot and the corresponding twists, as well as some very sizzling sexy scenes. I am eagerly anticipating Spencer's story.
Sage is the cowboy with a working ranch. He's hot and a great boss. He doesn't know what he's getting into with Jade. The cover pic alone is enough to make me swoon! They are opposites on the surface. She's the artist who went to France to learn her craft; he's the guy who returned to Hank's ranch. However, his ranch is not typical, as he offered a playground for kids, zip lining, and gourmet meals, and a dream that it could be so much more.
I enjoyed how free-spirited Jade was and willing to drop everything when she was inspired to create her art. Sage seemed to have the same passion for the ranch. And then there were the stories of Hank and his heartbreak as well as a bit of a mystery of Jade's mother. There was a legal battle brewing for the ranch that had quite a twist. There were some fun secondary characters, and it seems as if Spencer, Sage's twin brother, will have his own story.
My one minor peeve was Jade's early self-talk which I thought was a bit much. However, I like that it contrasted with who she became as the story progressed.
Note: I initially read this as an ARC (advance reader copy). I enjoyed it enough to 1-click a copy!
What an amazing ride (pun not originally intended) this story contains!! The attraction between these two is combustible; but our cowboy does not want to get into a relationship especially with an “employee”.
The play on words in the title will give you an indication of the clever wordsmithing Ms. Flowers exhibits. Past hurts, current needs, and a heart-warming relationship will draw you completely into this story
