Review: Cowboy Tough by Stacy Finz

Sheriff Jace Dalton’s plate is piled high even before he discovers a stranded motorist just a few miles from his home. With two lively young boys to raise, a challenging reelection to win, and a hefty tax bill due on the ranch, all he wants at the end of the day is a shower and a cold beer. But the woman in the packed SUV clearly needs his help—and though she’s a stranger, Jace finds himself wanting to turn her haunted look into a smile . . .

Fleeing her abusive boyfriend, Charlotte Holcomb thought she’d escaped before she lost everything, but more heartache was to come. Now, sidetracked by a brewing storm, Charlotte has to trust the handsome sheriff. Just one night, she tells herself, before she’s on her way again. But when gentle Jace and his kids offer the kind of sanctuary she never imagined possible, it’s hard to say goodbye. Soon the two wary strangers are becoming friends, and longing to open their hearts to more—if they can move beyond the pain of their pasts . . .
  
Right away this book will break your heart for Charlie. What happens to hear is just so wrong. You really need to read the book to get the full picture of why. Something's is better to be read fro oneself.

Like with the prior book I totally loved this one. These three cousins are so much fun to read about. Up this time is Jace. If you've read the prior book than you already met Jace and his sons. Jace is fighting so hard for what is left of his grandfathers legacy. It might turn out to be a losing battle. 

I really enjoyed him in the first book, Cowboy Up and was waiting for more. Cowboy Tough all made me want even more. I guess it's the mystery of what happened to Sawyer's sister. I wonder if we'll finally find out what happened to her in his book. 

Okay, enough about that we haven't even gotten to that book yet. Back to Cowboy Tough. I think my favorite part of this book is the way Jace treated his boys. Even when they were a handful he showed them love to go along with their punishment. 

He's a wonderful dad and sheriff and the two didn't need to treat him like they do. Or I should say some of the people. Not all. You'll have to read Cowboy Up to know what I'm talking about. This is why I love series. They are like a ball of yarn that's knotted. 

Since you know kinda what's going on in Charlie's life you really feel for her. She's full of a ton of emotions and she really doesn't know who to trust. I don't blame her for not trust or want to bring trouble to Jace and his boys. 

It's really sweet to see how Jace and the boys show her how it's to be with around good people again. It's been so long for her that she forgot. She learned a lot about Jace through his boys. You can tell a lot about a man by how he treats the weakest people around him. 

I think the most heartbreaking part is around the last half of this book. Again, you'll need to read it to find out why, but I  really liked how the author handled her becoming her own person again. As a whole, this is a wonderful story that I didn't want to end. I really enjoy these people even if they are only on paper. Do yourself a favor and read the series in order. There are only two books so far and you'll really get to know what's whats if you do. 

Have any of you read her before? What do you think of her books?
