Review: Secret Nights with a Cowboy by Caitlin Crews

A man holding on...
Riley Kittredge has always known exactly what he wanted. His land, his horses. His woman. He met and married Rae Trujillo far too young, and their young love combusted right after they said their vows. But their passion has never managed to burn itself out. Yet when Rae shows this time, it's not a night of pleasure she demands, but a divorce.

A woman letting go...
Rae should have moved on a long time ago. She knows she and Riley just don't work. They might make great lovers, but that doesn't make a marriage. And now Rae wants a new life, complete with a baby. But when her husband offers to be a father, to give her the family she's always secretly desired, she and Riley will both have to face demons from their past—and choose love over fear at last.
Second chance romance isn't always my cup of tea. I kinda feel been there done that. But I still read them. I know, I can't help myself. If it sounds good I have to give it a try. 

I have to start off with the fact that both Riley and Rae need a swift kick in the butt. They both have tunnel vision in their hurt and anger so they can't see beyond it. You just want to yell at them to step back and see the big picture. 

They've let their pasts eclipse the here and now. 

I understand they both have past issues, but the one thing for me that means so much is the fact that they both stayed married. Something has to be there for that to happen. They are both young and could have started over so something stopped them. 

I will say at times this isn't an easy book to read. I often got frustrated by it. I liked them both but at times when they are together, it was hard to like them. I will have to say this is a very emotional book to read. With all that you still couldn't put it down because you needed to know if they worked it all out. Yes, I know because it's a romance they would, but you still wondered with these two. 

So this is one of those books that I didn't love but still enjoyed it. It's not the first book in the series but I don't think it made much of a difference with this book. I do usually like to read them in order but sometimes that doesn't happen. Have any of you read her?


  1. I like a second chance romance if done right. This sounds like a good book.

    1. I do too! I just don't want to spend the whole book looking back.
