Shelves: romance , oh-my-heart , reviewed , kindle-ebook , adult , meh , own-ebook , read-in Rating: 2. It seems like Ive been reading a lot of Harlequin romance this year and while some have been amazing, some not so much.
And Im afraid Hired by the Cowboy fits the second category. Everything started super well with Hired by the Cowboy. Or as well as it could start. Asking a girl you just met to marry you so you can save your ranch is not among the things considered normal, or believable.
But Donna Alward did a pretty good job on making it as believable as possible. You wouldnt Rating: 2. Mostly… Anyway. Alex is resistant at first. Sure the guy saved her from eating dirt when she fainted in the middle of the sidewalk, but does that mean she should run to his arms like a crazy woman?
Sure he is super polite and gah! Duh, no! So Alex eventually agrees to marry Connor. Because she needs that security he is offering for her soon-to-be-born baby, and a little for herself too.
Everything goes great from there. They are attracted to each other but fight it, both too keen on keeping things platonic and on the safe side of friendship. Yes, another but. And this is where everything went to hell for me. The book was going okay until this point, with some great parts here and there and then…blah.
It was inevitable that the fall out would happen. It was predictable, it always is. I was expecting it, but gee it was disappointing. One second everything was okay and the next Alex was flipping out and threatening to leave and crying and what?! Woman, get a hold of yourself, please! And then it was over. It felt just so out of place to me. Like it never happened. I was already disappointed with the book. Hired by the Cowboy was cute and sweet and okay.
It still could have been better…. I wish it had been.
