Review & Excerpt: KISSING HER COWBOY by Adele Downs

We are celebrating the new release of Kissing Her Cowboy by Adele Downs with a review from Paulette and excerpt. This short romance story is only 99 cents, too!

Kissing Her Cowboy

Kissing Her Cowboy is a short story about injured bull rider Trey Woods, and Daisy Phillips.  Daisy had to leave the police force in Philidelphia due to an incident and she is trying to start over in Texas. The only hitch is it is for the mounted police and she is skittish around the large creatures.  Daisy is Trey’s new student and in teaching her to be comfortable with the horse, the two get comfortable with each other.

Despite being only 32 pages long, Downs does a good job hooking you in to these two characters.  They both have had problems with their initial jobs and are struggling with getting over that.  You feel their discomfort and that is what makes it all the sweeter when this troubled pair get together. If you are looking for a cute quick read, Kissing Her Cowboy makes for a great choice.

Excerpt from Kissing Her Cowboy:

“Oh, Lord.” Treymont Woods kicked up dust on his boots as he sauntered from the stables to the woman who just had to be his new riding student. Her flaming red hair swooshed from one side of her shoulders to the other as she watched his stallion, Big Blue, canter inside the corral. Her hands, knuckles white, clutched the fence and every muscle in her tall, slim figure looked tighter than rail posts. Before he could get to her, she pivoted toward the parking area, moving her feet like she was fixin’ to run.

“Hey there!” He called out as a distraction. By the time Trey reached the woman’s side, he could hear her breathing like she’d raced a Texas mile. Before he could introduce himself, she turned to him with wide green eyes and shouted, “He’s huge!” Pink splotches bloomed under the freckles on her pale skin.

She licked her bottom lip and shook her head. “No, no, no, no….” and started backing away. “I can’t do this. Keep my deposit. I’ll figure something else out.”

Trey lifted his hands in mock surrender. “Okay. No problem. You don’t have to ride if you don’t want to.”  Her jeans looked too tight for riding, anyway, and that white blouse would be smudged inside five minutes. Hadn’t the woman ever been to a ranch before? 

She stopped moving then and frowned at him, causing twin lines to form above her nose. Her adorable nose, now that he’d gotten a decent look. In fact, everything about the woman seemed downright appealing, despite her reaction to Big Blue. Who in their right mind wouldn’t love the greatest horse that ever lived, on sight?
