Review: A True Cowboy Christmas

Today I'm excited to share with you all my thoughts on A True Cowboy Christmas by Caitlin Crews. Below you will find out about the book, author and my thoughts. I recieved this book for review from the publishing company in exchange for my honest review. I want to thank them for letting me read and review this great book. 

A True Cowboy Christmas by Caitlin Crews
Genre:  Adult, Contemporary, Romance, Holiday, 
Published: October 30th 2018
Publisher: St. Martin's Press
Format: e-arc

 Gray Everett has a heart of gold but that doesn't mean he believes in the magic of Christmas. He's got plenty else to worry about this holiday season, what with keeping his cattle ranch in the family and out of the hands of hungry real-estate investors looking to make a down-and-dirty deal. That, plus being a parent to his young and motherless daughter, equals a man who will not rest until he achieves his mission. Now, all Gray needs is the help of his lifelong neighbor. . .who happens to have grown into a lovely, spirited woman.

For Abby Douglas, the chance to join forces with Gray is nothing less than a Christmas miracle. Much as the down-to-earth farmer's daughter has tried to deny it, Abby's been in love with stern, smoking-hot Gray her whole life. So when Gray proposes a marriage of convenience as a way to combine land--and work together toward a common cause—Abby can't refuse. But how can she convince Gray that sometimes life offers a man a second chance for a reason. . .and that their growing trust and mutual passion may be leading to true and lasting love?

 A True Cowboy Christmas is book one in this series and I'll say right now I look forward to reading more. I haven't read a book by this author before but it won't be my last.  I really enjoyed her writing style, though I will say at times I felt like she was holding back a little, but it didn't take away from the amazing story. I needed more of this book once it was finished and that tells me that I really connected with the story and it's characters. Normally I don't read Christmas stories before December, but I agreed to read this one because it sounded fantastic and I was right. 

The character Abby really made this story the perfection that it is. I really loved her character so much and her humor cracked me up. I will say that there wasn't much Christmas in this story but for me that was fine, because like I said above I like to read most of my Christmas reads in December. For a Christmas story, this book is filled with a lot of angst, so honestly it doesn't have the full joyful Christmas story that I'm used to. 

I was hooked right away when reading A True Cowboy Christmas, honestly it only took me the first page and then I couldn't put it down. I just had to know what was going to happen next. I will admit though I wasn't sure how I felt about the other main character throughout the most of the story. I loved Abby but not Gray right away. In the end though I loved his character just as much. It just took me some time to warm up to him. 

All in all this is a great read, but be warned there is a lot of angst. If you enjoy those type of reads this is the perfect book for you.
