ARC Review: Kiss Me Now, Cowboy by Dylann Crush

Forzas aren't quitters. That's the motto professional bull rider Justin Forza's dad has drilled into his head since the first time he climbed into the bucking chute. After a serious injury, doctor's orders are to stay out of the arena. But if Justin can win one more championship, he'll be able to continue the family legacy, set himself up for life, and finally confess his love to his best friend Emmeline.

Emmeline Porter lives by one rule: never date a bull rider. She's seen the damage a bad ride can cause. As a last resort to stop Justin from returning to the rodeo circuit, she convinces him to take a trip to Paradise Island, a tropical haven off the coast of Texas. She hopes cutting Justin off from the pressure his dad is laying on him will give her best friend the clarity he needs to walk away for good.

The close quarters and island adventures put their friendship to the test, and it's not long before real feelings surface and threaten to sweep them both away.
I love starting a new series. We get a whole set of new heroes and heroines and a new place to be. Dylann Crush is a newer author for me and I've been really enjoying what I've read so far. Up to and including Kiss Me Now, Cowboy. 

I enjoyed both Justin and Emmeline. They are wonderful characters and they brought a lot to the story. The idea for the story is very cute. I like how the author got them together so that they had private time with each other. I enjoyed the friends-to-lovers part of this story. 

You can see their friendship turn into something more. You'll like how it progresses. Not too fast but also doesn't wait till the very end. You feel like it's happening in real-time. 

Watching how they work out their issues and come together is fun. This is a very easy read. I will say that at times I wondered if Emmeline really knew what she wanted but saw that even as she's confused she still loves him.  

This is a great, fun summer read that starts off this new series very well. You'll enjoy this easy feel of it and how smooth it reads. Have any of you read her?
