Review: Marry Me Please, Cowboy (The 85th Copper Mountain Rodeo, #3) by Sinclair Jayne


She has her eye on the prize. He has his eyes on her.

Former soldier, now rodeo cowboy, Huck Jones doesn’t believe in love or marriage. Still, a promise is a promise, and he’s prepared to honor his fallen team leader’s wish to walk his sister down the aisle in Marietta, Montana. When the groom bolts moments before the ceremony, Huck offers himself as her alternative groom.

Barrel racer Willow McBride hates the cowboy code, and the soldier code is even more annoying. She’s pregnant, not helpless, so when her late brother’s sexy friend offers himself as a sacrificial husband, the answer is a resounding no. She wants love not duty. Plus, the 85th Copper Mountain Rodeo is looking to be her last as a competitor, and she intends to win.

Huck may no longer be a soldier, but he still believes no man—or woman—should be left behind. He’ll need to woo the beautiful, stubbornly independent cowgirl and change her mind. Failure is never an option.


My Review:

Huck is my kind of hero.

I couldn’t get enough of this book.  Huck is the ultimate romance hero.  He is a tough guy, former soldier turned cowboy.  But he also has a soft side and wanted to do what was right.  That included fulfilling the wishes of his team leader who died in combat.  He was to walk Jace’s sister down the aisle when she got married.  But things didn’t go as planned and from what Huck could see, Willow’s fiancé wasn’t worthy of marrying.  But he stood firm to his promise. 

Willow just wanted to give her baby a stable home, and that meant marrying her baby’s father even if they weren’t in love.  But as the story unfolds, we see Jake for his true colors.  He was self-centered and a control freak.  I love how this book played out and how Willow and Huck finally ended up together.  I thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it.
