Book Review: Last of the Red Hot Cowboys

This one of the few books I've received an Advanced Readers Copy via Netgalley. When I saw COWBOYS I immediately requested it, but it took me a little while to get into and I'm not really sure why. Even though I was happy with the outcome of this book I probably won't be clambering to get the rest of the series when it comes out. Sad three stars for this story.

Last of the Red Hot Cowboys by Tina Leonard

Synopsis: A sexy cowgirl gives a rugged Texas loner the ride of his life in USA Today bestselling author Tina Leonard’s seductive new series.

Ava Buchanan dreams of a career on the rodeo circuit. Winning a spot on a one-of-a-kind team would be her ticket to the life she’s always wanted. Ava won’t let anyone stand in her way—not even a stubborn cowboy whose slow-molasses smile and red-hot swagger set her senses aflame . . . and whose talents as a trainer could make her a star. Rodeo might be a man’s game, but Ava knows the right woman’s touch can tame the wildest heart.

Trace Carter believes his mayor’s plan to raise the town’s profile has disaster written all over it, and he won’t allow the Hell’s Outlaws Training Center to be dragged into the fiasco. Yet watching Ava’s delectable body on horseback proves too much of a temptation, and his fantasies stray to her riding skills outside the arena. Soon Trace is fighting like hell to rein in his unbridled desire for the petite brunette before it becomes a passion hotter than the Texas sun.

Review

This story has some hell raisin' women and the alpha males that were put on this earth to make their life a living Hell. Or maybe it's the other way around. I loved the two main characters, once they actually got around to recognizing their relationship potential / destiny but it took WAY too long and then the book was over.

Three girls are selected for a bull fighting training team by the town's mayor, Judy. I wasn't really sure what to make of Judy, I mean her Saturday night special with the local sheriff just to keep her in control was a little too feminist to me. Not my kind of story arc.

They guys are retired military SEALs, I mean come on this had the makings of a GREAT story but it just fell short for me.

Other than the main couple, I loved that this is placed in Hell, Texas. Fictional place, but perfect name for the town in this story.

What was the last book that you read with high hopes only to be let down in the end?

  2. Such a shame when it can be so good and falls short. I just read Wild Heat and it was such a bummer for me too. I mean hello firefighter hotshot and a fire investigator. Should have been good but so cliched. Hope your next read makes up for it.
