"Wondering about the direction of their relationship and finding out who was causing potentially fatalistic problems on the ranch keeps this story interesting till the very last page." - RT Book Reviews
"MUST LOVE COWBOYS is a smorgasbord of hot cowboys with a healthy dollop of succulent romance and intriguing mystery. For your next book-induced vacation, check out the Circle Bar K Ranch. The romance and mystery are enough to make this book stand out, but it's the fun, laid-back attitude and feeling of comradery that makes MUST LOVE COWBOYS, and this series, extra special." - Fresh Fiction

Tina is an IT specialist who travels to the Circle Bar K ranch in Wyoming after her grandfather dies. She's there to meet her grandfather's good friend and deliver some personal items to him. Even though Tina works in IT, she's a whiz in the kitchen and really derives joy from cooking. She's super shy, introverted, and a virgin. She's always had a thing for firefighters, not cowboys, but that changes when she meets Wyatt, who works on the ranch.
Coincidentally, Wyatt is not just a cowboy, but also a former firefighter. I'm not sure why this detail was included (other than to relate to Tina's fantasies), because not very much is said about his firefighting days. Wyatt has a traumatic past and that drama just seemed really unnecessary to me.
At first, Tina hooks up with one of the other ranch hands--not Wyatt--but she doesn't have sex with him. Then things change and she stops seeing the other guy and immediately hooks up with Wyatt and does have sex with him. Now, I don't always mind when the plot moves along quickly, but this whole book takes place over the course of a week or so, if I'm remembering correctly. That's just insane! Declarations of love and marriage proposals after a few days? Really?
Not to mention how quickly Tina's sex life moves along. A week ago, she was a shy virgin, but once she meets Wyatt, it's a sexual free-for-all, basically. I'm not buying it.
I'm bummed writing this review because I really liked the first book in the series, Cowboy Heaven. That one was SO raunchy and blatantly over-the-top. It was complete smutty fun. The other one, Cowboy Delight (book 0.5, a novella), was okay too even though I didn't love it. Must Love Cowboys, though, is definitely missing that fun, crazy vibe of the first book. There's a mystery subplot that was so random to me and I honestly didn't care about the resolution.
I had been looking forward to reading this book, but I was disappointed by it and truly had trouble finishing. I recommend books 1 and 0.5 in the series, but unfortunately not this one.
I’m going to preface my review by saying that I am a big fan of Brooks’s writing, and have been ever since discovering her Cat Star Chronicles. With that said, I apologize in advance if I get a little fan-girly in my review because I’ve read most of her books at least twice and several of them many, many, many more times than that. Even though I haven’t yet had a chance to reread any of the books in the Cowboy Heaven series, I absolutely adore this cantankerous group of cowboys and cannot wait to saddle up for another ride, especially with Wyatt at the reins.
While I was one of five women in my family who rallied together to care for my grandfather in his final year, there are so many ways that I connected with Tina’s character that it’s not funny (and no, I’m not going to enumerate them). Suffice it to say, much like Tina, I too would have loved and hated the situation she found herself in when she arrived the Circle Bar K ranch…all that hot, muscled cowboy goodness. Yummy and intimidating. Fortunately for Calvin, Tina’s manners were so well ingrained that she found herself unable to refuse the invitation to spend the night on the ranch, thereby enabling her to sound the alarm in the middle of the night when she realized that he was likely having a heart attack. In some books, this would seem like a contrived scenario that set the stage for Tina to extend her stay at the ranch. However, considering the reason why Tina was visiting Calvin and the fact that the man was nearing seventy, Tina’s presence felt fortuitous rather than forced. Being that she has spent the past two years of her life as her grandfather’s sole caretaker, her swooping in to save the cowboys from their own inept attempt at cooking breakfast the following day fell in-line with what we had already learned about her character. So it was no stretch of the imagination that she would agree to remain on as the temporary cook while Calvin was in the hospital. Much like Angela in Cowboy Heaven, Tina finds that a bunkhouse full of cowboys is fodder for many a fantasy and she, too, soon finds the one cowboy she wouldn’t mind be rode hard and put up wet by – even if he did intimidate the heck out of her in the beginning. And it doesn’t hurt any that Wyatt McCabe is a former firefighter – Tina’s ultimate fantasy man. But can what started as a bunkhouse fling, really go the distance?
As expected, Brooks did not disappoint in the chemistry department between Tina and Wyatt. I enjoyed her initial attraction to Dean and Nick, but her responses to Wyatt made it easy to accept the speed at which the relationship develops. Yes, things progress VERY quickly between Tina and Wyatt, but with the constant interaction between Tina and all the cowboys, it felt like more time passed than really had. That, along with my knowledge that relationships often develop quickly in this author’s books, kept me from feeling like it was rushed. Now what really surprised me about Must Love Cowboys was the romantic suspense angle. I was not at all expecting the mystery that cropped up surrounding Calvin’s heart attack, but found that part of the storyline to be a seriously exciting bonus to the book. A mystery, sexy cowboys, hot sex, and romance made Must Love Cowboys an excellent addition to the Cowboy Heaven series and has me already looking forward to my next visit to the Circle Bar K ranch.
