REVIEW - Cowboy Up - Harper Sloan

TITLE - Cowboy Up
AUTHOR - Harper Sloan

Released Dec 19th


New York Times bestselling author Harper Sloan returns with the third in her sultry, Western-set Coming Home series, in which the eldest Davis sibling Clay may have finally met his match—but will he be able to give up the solitary, quiet life he’s built in the name of love?

As the eldest of the Davis clan, Clayton has always tried to lead by example. Along with taking his job as head of the family business seriously, he is also determined to keep his brother and sister in line. Clay is known for being serious, silent, and stoic—completely in control of his life. And with the way he grew up, coupled with a disastrous end to the last relationship he was in, he’s just fine with his quiet, solitary life.

What he hadn’t counted on was Caroline Michaels. She’s the proverbial woman next door—the town next door, that is. Caroline hasn’t lived an easy life, but after escaping from an abusive relationship, she’s finally living for herself and no one else. The last thing the quirky, shy bookstore owner expected was a steamy one-night stand with Clay Davis.

When Caroline and Clay meet, the connection is instant, both falling into one heated night of passion before parting ways—both driven by their own reasons to deny what they clearly wish didn’t have to end. It isn’t until Caroline falls on hard times and Clay comes back into the picture that they realize just how impossible it will be to stay away from each other.

Will Clay be able to give up his rootless existence in favour of finally settling down? And, more important, will Caroline want him to?

Johnaka's Review:

“The final Davis sibling, 5 stars”

Clayton Davis never thought he would settle down and become a family man. In a way he already raised his kids (siblings) and if he hadn’t found the woman to settle him down by now then he didn’t have much faith he ever would. Or so he thought until he met sweet Caroline. In Caroline he found that he wanted it all and it would be easy to do. But what happens if someone doesn’t want you to be happy and tries to take it all away?

Caroline…sweet sweet Caroline. She’s been to h*ll and back and most importantly lived. Ever since then she’s been putting one foot in front of the other and trying to find her place. Which is slightly tricky for the shy girl. One night she decides to live a little outside her normal and that’s when everything changes. She knew Clayton when she was younger and had a crush on him then. Not much has changed aside from the fact he’s looking at her now. Can she manage to get the guy she always wanted?

I loved how both Caroline and Clayton accepted immediately that they were meant to be and never questioned it. There was never that stupid moment of I should walk away. They knew that they were meant to make it out on the other side, and I loved it. Maybe because that’s because that’s how I see love. You hold on for dear life and don’t even think about getting bucked off. We got to see the other Davis siblings and their spouses and watch the family grow which was awesome. I loved getting caught up on all of them and seeing everyone happy.

Take a chance on the Davis’ and watch everyone become a little bit strong with the love of their partner. As far as I am concerned Sloan knocked it out of the park again with Cowboy Up.
