Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Stock characters and a predictable plot mar Kennedy's second contemporary western romance (after Cowboy Trouble). Charlie Banks, a perky Rutgers graduate student and devout PETA member, leaves New Jersey for Wyoming, expecting to research a genuine horse whisperer. Instead she finds handsome but inarticulate cowboy Nate Shawcross, whose ex-girlfriend advertised a dude ranch, took the customers' money, and skipped town. The supposed contrast between Charlie's animal rights activism and Nate's career vanishes by chapter three, when Charlie decides that "aybe horses didn't mind being ridden... like Nate said." The rest of the story--Charlie falls hard for Nate, copes easily with his quirky uninvited guests, puts her city smarts to work helping him handle his avaricious ex--would be a better fit for a much shorter book.

From Booklist

*Starred Review* When graduate student Charlie Banks is assigned research on horse whisperers, her PETA-inspired belief that riding a horse is tantamount to animal cruelty threatens to affect the objectivity of her study. Still, given no choice by her supervisor, Charlie heads for Latigo Ranch in Wyoming. A dyed-in-the-wool New Jersey girl, she finds nothing to like about the wide-open spaces of the Equality State, especially because the actual ranch bears little or no resemblance to the picture-perfect paradise in the brochure. The last thing rancher Nate Shawcross wants at Latigo is a meddling woman, and an uninvited one, at that. Burned by his former girlfriend, Nate is happy with his horses, the only living things he can trust. After an initial altercation, Charlie is set to leave, but her car breaks down, and there’s nothing she can do but wait until the parts arrive. A stubborn city girl meets a stubborn rancher in this novel about how opposites, even those with preconceived notions about each other, attract. Kennedy (Cowboy Trouble, 2010) has written an entertaining and humorous romance. --Shelley Mosley

"Okay, disclaimer: I'm not one to read romance novels.
Another disclaimer: But I love books about cowboys.

I was hesitant to post this review because I'm still slightly embarassed by the fact that I read a romance novel, but I totally enjoyed this book and it would be unfair not to. It was decently written, wasn't uncomfortably raunchy/subversive and there was even some character development there. That's all I expected, or wanted, from this so I was happy.

Every time I felt like Charlie was being annoying, I just forced myself to think of the awful Anastasia and her "inner goddess" and suddenly everything was okay. (Yes, I hate 50 Shades that much.)

All in all, a fun and quick read. I'd check out her other ranch romance novel for a vacation weekend or something."

I liked this book but can't say it's a keeper. Nate came across to me as not having much back-bone and let Sandi run over him too much. There were multiple things that Sandi was telling him and doing that he just took as truth. He never questioned Sandi even though she had left him and cleaned out the bank accounts in the process. He just kept making excuses for her. I didn't get it and it took Charlie and the others to make Nate stand up to her. Like I said, not much back-bone. I like a strong male character lead in my books and this one just didn't cut the muster.

Joanne Kennedy set a high bar with her debut novel, Cowboy Trouble, but she's easily surpassed it with this one. Though at the beginning it appeared to be a simple story of New Jersey PETA activist meets strong, silent Wyoming cowboy, every time I thought I knew where the plot was headed, Kennedy threw in a plot twist, deepening the emotional impact as the heroine (and the reader) discovered a bit more about that silent cowboy. And, oh, was it fun watching him learn to express himself verbally. Filled with laugh out loud moments and what I've begun to think is Kennedy's trademark - a cast of captivating secondary characters - One Fine Cowboy is a book for the keeper shelf.

City girl meets country boy has never been quite as funny and endearing as this story about Charlie and Nate. I fell in love with this book about a couple navigating a deepening romance even though they share opposing views about ranching and horses. Joanne Kennedy has once again surprised and delighted readers with another romance woven with humor and a ton of heart. I loved the twists in the story that made this book much bigger than your everyday romance novel.

Charlie comes to Wyoming under the pretense of Horse Whispering on a dude ranch according to the brochure. She did not know Sandi Nate's ex girlfriend lied about the way the ranch looked. It was almost in shambles. The first think Charlie wanted to do was go right back home. As shocked as she was she could not get a refund as Sandi cleaned out the checking and savings account and left town to go to Denver. Nate was broke and needed help with the clinic he had no clue it was to take place. With Charlie's help he just might make it if he can convince Charlie to stay.

The book was good the thing I did not like is poor Nate being led by Sandi and believed everything she had to say as truth. He never questioned her after she cleaned out their accounts and left him. When she comes back for a few days he is lead again by her as she takes over. It takes Charlie and Doris, another student that shows up for the clinic, to get Nate to face Sandi.

I liked the relationship between Nate and Charlie and the other support characters were fun to get to know. I did like seeing Lackaduck back into the book from the earlier books and some characters that was named before bounce around in the book.

Review originally posted at Romancing the Book

This is the first in a series of cowboy books by the very talented Joanne Kennedy. The books focus on rough, tough and devastatingly sexy cowboys and the woman who are in someways their downfall but also their saviors.

In One Fine Cowboy we meet Nate, a sweet,kind, caring cowboy who loves his ranch and has worked hard for what he has, but he also is a bit of a grump and the not so polite kind. This impolite manner was brought on by his common law wife, she not only took everything he had, every last cent withdrawn from their bank accounts, she also took their beloved daughter when she left. To top it all off she changed his ranch into a horse whisperer learning school without telling him (of course pocketing the cash).

So here he is with the first of many “students” showing up ready to learn. Charlie is the most gorgeous creature he has ever laid eyes on but fun and sexy Charlie has a different approach to life and also horses, one that makes them bump heads one more than one occasion. However, the truth of his ex wife’s dealings come to light and forces Charlie to not only find some way to keep herself busy whilst Nate comes up with a way to raise the money to give back to her the deposit in order for her to have her car fixed so she can return home, but it also forces her to try to fight off the strong attraction between her and Nate.

She fails miserably, falling head over heals in love and in bed with Nate. Amongst all this there are the new students showing up on their doorstep and low and behold Nate’s ex common law wife Sandi. She shows up demanding the ranch be sold and she wants half the sale or he will never see his daughter again.
