Review: To Tame a Wild Cowboy by Lori Wilde

One minute, Rhett Lockhart is a love ‘em and leave ‘em bull rider with a slow, sexy smile, a swagger, and not a care in the world. The next, he learns his free-wheeling days are over: a baby has been abandoned in the hospital, and there’s no question: he’s the father. But from the first moment he gazes into his daughter’s eyes, he knows the moment has come to say ‘no’ to no-strings. It’s time to grow up.

Standing in his way is the baby’s foster mother, Tara Alzate, who doesn’t quite believe Rhett is ready to change his ways. Still, she’s not immune to his considerable charms. So when he proposes a marriage of convenience and shared custody, against her better judgment, she says “I do.” Can Tara tame this wild cowboy and make her own, long-buried dreams come true?

I so love visiting Cupid, Texas. Such wonderful characters live here. Up this time is Rhett Lockhart and Tara Alzate. 

I totally loved Rhett. He's such a great guy even if he's not sure he can be. When he finds out that he has a child as scared as he is he decides to be there for his daughter. Since he has spent most of his life running free fatherhood isn't something that comes easy to him. But he does what needs to be done even if it takes him a while to figure out what that is. 

Tara at time rubbed me wrong. I just couldn't handle her at times. She feels she smart and better at everything than everyone else. She treats Rhett pretty horribly. Yes, her heart is broken thinking she will lose the little girl she's come to think of as her own and I get that, but this woman really needs to either get laid or something. 

I had a hard time liking her for most of the book. The funny part is that Rhett seemed to get her. Yeah, she hurt him at times but he seemed to deal with it. I guess if he didn't mind why should I. 

For the most part, this is a really good story. So many good emotions are felt throughout the book. I laughed, I cried and I even yelled. We all know who I was yelling at, don't we? Not to worry, Tara isn't the only person I thought was shit. I didn't care for the Judge either. All this "your a bull rider, it's dangerous. Either stop doing what you do or lose your child crap. So would she act the same way if he was a cop, firefighter or soldier?  All those jobs carry risk too. 

Can you tell I really liked Rhett? Ha! It shows, doesn't it? Even with all the crap, I didn't care for I still really enjoyed the story. I guess sometimes you really need the crap to make a good involved story. 

So have any of you read this series? She has other series and books too that are very good. I'd love to hear your thoughts.
