REVIEW - The Cowboy Next Door (This Old House #3) by Roxanne Snopek

The Book
Release Date: 27 January 2015

Love’s worth more than being right

When single mother Leda Plett - who’s doing just fine on her own, thank you very much – goes next door to retrieve her wandering pooch, she doesn’t expect to find the neighbor’s handsome brother lounging about like he owns the place. She certainly doesn’t expect him to go after the deadbeat who abandoned her. She’s not looking for a know-it-all white knight with long, lean muscles and a sexy smile. He’s hot, but she’s already been burned.

Rodeo-star turned agent Eric Anders is used to managing people, especially irresponsible males, and he can’t stand it that some jerk has left Leda high and dry. Clearly, the boots-and-sundress wearing mouthy mama needs someone on her side. He could change her life, if only she would let him! And it has nothing to do with the fact that her sparkly exterior hides a spirit that is as sweet as it is strong – and irresistible.

In fact, Leda is more mature than her years. She feels the weight of her mistakes, and wants only to make sure her daughter doesn’t suffer for them. Eric’s hot gaze makes her weak in the knees but Leda’s track record with men is as bad as it is short. Can she trust the cowboy next door?

When Eric’s well-intentioned actions inadvertently reveal a shameful secret from Leda’s past, he realizes she never needed him at all. As he watches her rise above the humiliation, he knows he must find a way to make it up to her, or risk losing the one girl he now can’t live without.

My Opinion  5 STARS
**My thanks to NetGalley and Tule Publishing, for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

It is a wondering old dog named Jackson that ultimately brings together our love interests.

Leda is a woman who we met in A Sweet Montana Christmas and who is not afraid to say her mind, she also uses made up swear words in order to save her young daughters ears from her own fowl language.  She makes the most of a bad situation and has a good outlook on life.

Eric is only staying with his brother Chad on the farm that they inherited from their grandfather.  When Leda makes her grand entrance, I think he is smitten with her there and then, but it is the dog that keeps bringing them together.

Eric wants to help her, being a protector, however she also shows him that she can look after herself.

Loved the chemistry between the two and the words that came out of Leda's smart mouth :)
