Review of Kiss the Cowboy by Julie Jarnigan

This post may contain affiliate links.

Kiss the Cowboy is inspirational romantic fiction from Redbud Press that is a light, simple read. It's not very long. And I'll admit that it's twaddle. But every once in a while I do enjoy these not very thought-provoking easy reads.

From the book's description:


What if your competition for your dream job…was your dream man?

All Lucy Pickett needs to become executive chef in one of Dallas’s finest restaurants is to pull off the high-profile wedding she’s catering. So what if she’s forced to share duties with Dylan Lawson, a modern-day chuck-wagon cook? So what if he’s got rugged looks and cowboy charm? None of that is going to knock her off her game. Until she learns the restaurateur is considering Dylan for the position she wants. Game on–and it’s a winner-take-all event!

Dylan Lawson finally has the opportunity he’s been waiting for to prove he can do more than just be a ranch hand. The only thing standing in his way is the fiery chef fighting for the same position. Will the heated competition scorch any chance they have for love?

There isn't much character development here. The story is pretty predictable. There is the typical pattern of short romances- boy-girl meet, love each other secretly, have some sort of conflict or personal problem that keeps them from accepting their feelings, and finally resolve to live happily ever after. Although the story line is pretty redundant, it works in a romance. And Kiss the Cowboy fits this typical pattern.

If you're looking for an easy summer read and enjoy a clean romance, Kiss the Cowboy is one you may want to look at. You can read more about the book at Redbud Press and find the author- Julie Jarnigan- here. You can find Kiss the Cowboy for purchase on Amazon, Barnes and Noble (for Nook) and iBooks.

I give this one 3.5 stars and a G rating.
