She’s a cutting-edge travel blogger—he’s a fishing guide with strong ties to their small hometown.

She thought they were arch enemies—he always thought they’d end up together.

Autumn grew up in her parents’ fishing resort in backwoods Oregon, listening to wild travel stories from around the world. Now she’s broken free and living her dream as a travel blogger, that is until her mom talks her into coming home and writing a blog about the Rugged Resort. Autumn’s very surprised to find Cory still there. He was the thorn in her side growing up, and now he’s buddy-buddy with her parents. She plans to write her blog and hit the road, but Cory has other ideas.

My The Cowboy Kiss review:

The Cowboy Kiss is a sweet and very short contemporary romance in which two childhood friends meet up again after six years apart. Cory knows he only has a few days to sweep Autumn off her feet, and apparently, he manages to do so – even if that happened off page.

Even in a short story, I think it’s possible to show a little bit more of what the characters are thinking and feeling, and I was not really satisfied when The Cowboy Kiss Ended.

The writing is quite good, though, and if you’re in the mood for something very short, The Cowboy Kiss might be just what you need. It was a little bit too scattered for my liking, but that doesn’t mean it has to be the same for you.

The Cowboy Kiss quote:

She wondered if her blog readers would have a clue that hog meant a big fish, although it might be funny if some city slickers mistakenly thought people out in the sticks in Oregon caught hogs on a fishing line.

  1. I love short and sweet. Seriously. Sometimes that’s exactly what I need!!! And right now, it’s only $.99!!! How can I go wrong with that! 😉

  2. Scattered…? I wonder what that means. *checks dictionary* Oh my okay, it must have been confusing a little, then? I remember you liking Cowboy books though, so I’m glad this was pleasant nonetheless 😀 Happy New year, Lexxie!

    • Yes, a little confusing, and I guess just too short in some ways. Interesting enough that I would like to read more from the author, though 🙂
      Happy New Year, Lola!

  3. Some times sweet and short is just what we need 🙂 This is a new author to me, I don’t think I’ve heard of her before.
    Thank you Lexxie! I hope you have a very Happy New Year!

    • This is even shorter than most novellas, though, Kim, only 30 pages! I think there’s a follow-up novella (around 100 pages) that might help me get some closure 🙂
