Cowboy it's Cold Outside
Twilight, Texas #8
Lori Wilde
10/31/2017
Avon Books
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Pages: 400
Format Read: eBook
Source: Purchased


Wearing a too-tight “Santa Baby” costume held in by a double pair of Spanx, Paige MacGregor runs headlong into a gorgeous, grey-eyed hunk of a long, tall cowboy. And not just any cowboy, but country-western star Cash Colton, visiting Twilight to perform in a charity concert. Most women would melt at his feet, but Paige knows all too much about self-assured men with cocky attitudes, so she tells him to get lost.

Cash is in town, nursing his own broken heart, but Paige has knocked him off his feet. He’s convinced she’s perfect—someone to inspire his music and share his now-empty bed. True, he’s not marriage material, but he’s determined to convince her that they’re perfect together—at least for a while. But what he doesn’t count on is falling in love with the one woman who isn’t about to give him the time of day!


Even as I write this review I keep playing the song Baby, It's cold outside! Really puts me in the holiday spirit. Of course when I read this it was 88 degrees out so...

Unfortunately I missed this one last year and forgot to read it. But with the next book in the series, The Christmas Key coming out on October 23rd I figured I better get going. And what a stroke was it that I that it was a wonderful title and we have a challenge about a title?

I worked out perfectly! 

Lori Wilde is a favorite of mine so I was happy to sit down and get into Cowboy, it's Cold Outside. Believe me when I said not only was the song playing in my head as I read the book I kept call the book by the song title. 

Crazy! Perfect cleaver title! 

I really enjoyed both Paige and Cash. I felt for him. He didn't have the greatest roll model in a parent but lets be honest even the worse parent is a parent that we love. Just happens that way. Might now like them, but love is different. As his mom might not be terrible but she wouldn't have won a prize either.  

Poor, poor Paige. Talk about bad luck, she had plenty. She really has bad taste in men, Cash not included. What kind of romance would this be if he sucked. She's a giver and has given everything she has with no a lot of return. 

Throughout the story I felt bad for her. Her past has made it that she was having trouble seeing or believing in a future. They do say Christmas is the time for miracles. If anyone needs one it's Paige. 

I do believe you'll enjoy this fun, romantic story with a ton of holiday cheer. I know I did. The good part is that the weather is slightly more normal for us so when I read The Christmas Key it will probably be in the mid 60's. Closer to winter weather. 

If you've read Cowboy, it's Cold Outside or any other book by Lori Wilde I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading! ♡
