Nothing Like a Cowboy ( by Donna Alward

Nothing Like a Cowboy Getting back in the saddle has never felt so good…

A Story

Brett Harrison tried marriage once and isn’t anxious for another round. So when his meddling twin sister sets him up on a dating site, he seriously considers strangling her and cancelling. Luckily for him, he’s too much of a gentleman to act on those impulses, and when he meets Melly Walker, he wonders if it’s time to get back in the saddle.

Melly knows exactly where her previous marriage went wrong. She was dazzled by her ex’s big-city charm and strayed too far from her roots. This time, she’s going with tried and true–a dyed-in-the-wool cowboy. Her first few dates net her more duds than studs, but when she meets Brett, she’s ready to get more than just her feet wet.

The principles of trust and compromise are great in theory, but when Melly discovers Brett has his eye on more than just her curves, she questions her judgment and his motives. Is Brett ready to drop his dreams for something as unreliable as love?

Warning: Contains virtual hat-tipping, real-time kissing and sexy times. Yee haw!


Nothing Like a Cowboy is a sweet story about two hurt people trying to trust, again. Brett’s twin sister, Manda, created a profile for him on a cowboy dating site. Unbeknownst to him, she set him up with Melly, a divorced, twenty-something, looking to date a rancher. After his own divorce, he isn’t so sure about going on the date, but decides that he doesn’t want to be rude and stand her up. Sparks fly when Brett and Melly meet for coffee and they set up another date.

Both of them have a hard time trusting because of past hurts from their divorces. Certain circumstances lead them both to question the other’s motives for dating each other. Mel is the most stubborn of all and won’t listen to reason. I feel like she was really harsh, but understand where her hurt was coming from.
In the end, it all works out and they both find their Happily Ever After. This was a cute, quick, read that is great for a summer afternoon.
