Review: A Cowboy and a Promise (Blackstone Ranch Book 1) by Pam Crooks

Her determination fuels his desire

When her dying friend pleads for help to finish a renovation project, Ava Howell can’t refuse, even though her promise means leaving her new career and familiar life in New York to travel to a remote ranch in Texas. She’s good at what she does, and the ghost town vacation resort would look great on her resume, but it means tangling with the ex-military cowboy who is determined to stop her as soon as she arrives.

Beau Paxton needs to sell the land and ghost town to save his family’s struggling ranch. He’s a formidable enemy to Ava’s determination, but the harder she works, the more his attraction for her grows. He doesn’t want to set aside his plans so she can succeed at hers, yet he finds himself doing just that...

Will a promise bring a city girl and a sexy cowboy together? Or will a broken one drive them apart?

My Review:

She was a risk for anyone to love. 

Ava Howell has lost everyone she ever loved.  Her most recent loss was her best friend Erin, who was working with her aunt in Texas, turning an old ghost town into a resort.  Ava had never been to Texas, on a ranch or seen a ghost town.  Everything would be new to her.  Blackstone Ranch would soon become a place close to her heart.  And, a certain cowboy, Beau Paxton, will be the one to make Ava believe in love again.

This is the beginning of a new series and it is already off to an incredible start.  Ava and Beau’s story was so good.  The angst between the characters in the beginning was fun to read, but when Ava started giving in to Beau’s requests, the story got even better.  I especially loved how the story wrapped up.  I can’t wait to read the rest of the books in this series.
