Review: The Cowboy’s Honor by Amy Sandas
Sourcebooks Casablanca, 2019
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Hours before her wedding, Courtney Adams receives a beautiful love letter from her fiance. The only problem is that the love letter wasn’t written to her. *womp womp* So, as any self-respecting girl would, she pulls a Rachel Green, hikes up her wedding dress, and climbs right out the window. Leaving her family and all of Boston’s elite behind, Courtney follows a friend out west to Montana. Everything was going (not so) great until a super grumpy cowboy mistakes her for a mail-order bride. And then she sort of accidentally marries him. Ooops. I really hate when that happens…
In a perfect comedy of errors, Dean Lawson finds himself with a fancy Eastern wife he never wanted. But, before he knows what hit him, Courtney is challenging him at every turn and bringing his stubborn, broken heart back to life. Except their marriage of (in)convenience was only supposed to be temporary…
I don’t know why it took me so long to read a Amy Sandas book but I can’t wait to go back and frantically read everything she’s ever written. I thought The Cowboy’s Honor was fantastic. Courtney is brave and opinionated and willing to claim her own happiness. Dean is a cantankerous cowboy after my own heart. But the best part of The Cowboy’s Honor is the yummy way that Dean and Courtney battle and bicker back and forth before finally (FINALLY) admitting how they both feel. I don’t know what it says about me but gahhhh I really love it when a couple can’t stand one another at first.
All of that said, I wouldn’t have minded if these two had moved a little faster. A few times I was definitely like Kiss! Kiss! Kiss! Kiss! Not yet? Boooo. Also, considering that everything was soooo all Dean’s fault, he could have cooled it a few times with his jerky attitude. But you know how grumpy cowboys do…
The Cowboy’s Honor is the second book in a series called the Runaway Brides (the first is called The Gunslinger’s Vow) and it releases on 2/19. But you can pre-order it now! Thank you, Netgalley for allowing me to read an advanced copy.
Happy Romance Reading!
