Review: Her Kind of Cowboy by Dylann Crush
Alex Sanders ran as far and fast as he could from his hometown--all the way to Antarctica. But a job opportunity as the penguin handler for an over-the-top wedding jerks entices him back. Being home means he can finally help his overwhelmed sister wrangle their unruly grandpa--at least until the next opportunity comes around and he can hit the road running again. The last thing he expects to find in Texas is a shot at love...
Once Alex crashes into Zina's life--literally--there's no denying their chemistry. But are their feelings for each other enough to keep Alex in Texas for good, or will he follow the march of the penguins back to the South Pole?
Her Kind of Cowboy is the second book Dylann Crush's Tying the Knot in Texas. I really enjoyed the first book in the series and was so glad to be able to read the second one.
This one doesn't have as many of the townspeople in it but you get Lacey and Bodie. I really liked them for The Cowboy Says I Do so I was glad for the visit.
Lacey, you meet in the first book and get to know her somewhat. You get enough to want to know more. Alex is a new character and one for the most part I really enjoyed. Together these two work. There is an easy rhythm to them that makes for a seamless relationship. For most of the book, there are no rocky moments.
Sometimes that doesn't work but with this book it did. I liked that there wasn't a ton of conflict. Instead what you got was a plain "getting to know you" type of book. I really enjoyed that. I liked how in each chapter we learned more about them and they got closer and closer.
Lacey is the sweetest. Her biggest problem is that she feels the need to take care of everyone. She also has an issue with the word no, even with it needs to be said. Her big heart with the dogs and just so wonderful and the way she came back to take care of her brother just shows you what a good person she is.
Now Alex is slightly different. He too is a good person but has some internal conflicts that he doesn't know how to deal with. He's running from something that makes it impossible for him to settle in one place for too long.
You finally find out why and might think to yourself, really? But it works with the book. The realization of why is only a blimp in the story. My favorite part is the ending. So romantic and loving. It shows you what kind of guy he really is.
As a whole, this is a great story and wonderful addition to Tying the in Texas series. It makes me what more. Again I will say I don't understand the cowboy in the title. Are they saying if you are from Texas you are a cowboy? In that case, it needs to be explained. Have you read this author?
