The Comeback Cowboy PDF/EPUB ¼ The Comeback  PDF/EPUB It isn t easy for a man to get back in the saddle after he s lost his competitive edge But fallen rodeo star Ty Boudeau refuses to give up his shot at the World Championship Even if it means taking lessons at a glorified dude ranch from a woman who can rope a steer better than a manAs owner of Cowboy College, Adele Donnelly makes it a rule never to get involved with her guests Especially not a famous and footloose cowboy whose life is all about traveling the rodeo circuit But Ty is than just another handsome faceand getting pregnant with his baby wasn t in Adele s long term game plan Because men like him can t be tied down And she s not used to family sticking aroundWhy should Ty be any different Should she give the cowboy a chance to be a championship daddy I received this book through the Harlequin Ambassador program, in exchange for an honest opinion Review I never know what to expect with plain old romance books as I prefer romantic suspense sometimes they re corny or overly sappy, but sometimes they surprise me This is one of the times I was surprised, because I wasn t actually expecting to like this one very

exchange for an honest opinion Review I never know what to expect with plain old romance books as I prefer romantic suspense sometimes they re corny or overly sappy, but sometimes they surprise me This is one of the times I was surprised, because I wasn t actually expecting to like this one very much at all I m going to skip my usual overview because the synopsis above gives you plenty of information, I would just be repeating it 1 Character Development I actually fell in love with these characters First we meet Ty, who s kind of a celebrity on the rodeo scene, but he s extremely sweet and humble, as evidenced by the fact that he agreed to check out the Cowboy College in the first place He s not a jerk at all and not too proud to ask for help Adele is the woman who runs Cowboy College and Ty is sort of smitten with her right away She s a no nonsense person who can rope just as well as any of the guys in the sport Her childhood was rough, with her parents divorcing and her mom trying to bed any cowboy that came along that s why she swears she would never date Ty She doesn t want to be like her mom and she s not looking for just a short fling I loved how tough she was, and such a smart businesswoman I also liked how Ty never gave her any grief about teaching him he knew this woman would be able to help him figure out what was preventing him from riding and roping to the best of his ability The only secondary character we see through the entire book is Pop, Adele s grandfather I loved him, he may be old but he knows his way around a horse and he gently suggests or pushes, at times Adele into doing the right thingas he sees it anyway I also liked Ty s rival, Garth Maitland Although Garth had taken the win due to Ty s shortcomings in the big competition, he didn t rub his face in it It was nice to see them be competitive, but Ty was able to put his hurt from losing aside to see what a great guy Garth was and that there was no reason they couldn t be friends when they re not roping that is 2 The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly First, The Good Absolutely loved the characters and the story line As I said, normally I like a littleconflict or action with my romance novels, but maybe I just needed a break from all of the close calls, action sequences, and death This was just a nice, light romance and it was refreshing to me after some of the depressing books I read The Bad I m disappointed about the cover model for the paperback The following quote is directly from the book Reaching across the counter, Ty removed his cowboy hat, and an unruly lock of sandy blond hair promptly fell across his tanned forehead pg 15 of paperback The guy on the cover, while deliciously gorgeous, does not look at all how Ty was described in the book That was really disappointing to me I can make up my own yummy images in my mind, but I feel like the cover should have done a better job of trying to match the character The Ugly I HATE how the synopsis on the back of the book gives away a major plot point All I can say is Why You don t need to give away the whole story to get people to read the book It annoys me, because this major plot twist would have been really fun to discover on my own, but instead I made the mistake of reading the synopsis first Major bummer 3 Romance Sizzle Or Fizzle Oh sizzle There was definitely sexual tension between Ty and Adele from the beginning, but the romance wasn t rushed or forced in any way Adele had her fears about dating anyone, much less a guy that would be away most of the time with the rodeo circuit It was really sweet to see their relationship bloom and evolve as the story progressed 4 Uniqueness Of Plot Not really all that unique, but that didn t make me like it any less As long as you take it for what it is, a nice, light read, you won t be disappointed 5 Final Thoughts I m really glad I got the opportunity to read this one The romance was sweet and not rushed Adele and Ty made a really cute couple Although I had some problems with the cover and the TMI too much information synopsis, I m not going to detract from my overall rating because I did enjoy the story a lot Definitely a nice little romance that anyone could enjoy If you would like to readof my reviews, make sure you visit my book review blog, Bookerella The hero Ty has come to the heroine Adele s ranch in order to try and

minute of it, as she and Ty spend time together she relishes helping him and also realises she is falling for him Ty also falls for Adele, he admires her strength and skill, but he is so focused on his rodeo career that he doesn t know what kind of future he can offer Adele Adele is wary of relationships after watching the disaster he mother made of her life, and she also doesn t want to hold Ty back from what he could achieve When I first read the blurb of this book I literally guffawed, and thought Cowboy College Come on This, to me, seemed so cheesy and stereotypically American that I thought it would end up being a bit silly, but I really enjoyed this book I loved the setting and the backgrounds of both characters, which caused them to meet Their relationship develops beautifully, and feels very real I adored the heroine s strength and intelligence, she is really inspiring up until the last few chapters The hero is also wonderful, Ty is so full of charm, yet also very sensitive, I couldn t help but love him.But there are two things this book didn t need and kind ruined it for me Firstly the heroine s mummy issues are a little frustrating, especially when her mother turns up Secondly, the accidental pregnancy plot just seemed to be crowbarred in and rather cheapened the rest of the story, plus Adele s decision to keep it a secret was at complete odds with her character.But despite these things I really loved this book It s a great romance that takes place in an interesting and fun setting Originally posted at This was a free book from Tell Harlequin, I really enjoyed reading this one When I started it I couldn t put it down the characters were great and they are seem real enough I found this Author to be real good I love the way she writes and I will be looking intoof her books. The book starts out with much promise, as Ty and Adele have instant chemistry Even though both have reservations about their relationship, it is obvious to the reader that the pair are good for each other, both romantically and on the ranch.Ty is easily a rather likable guy, as he is able to humble himself enough to seek help for his career, as well as put aside his own competitiveness for the sake of the concerns of others Adele, on the other hand, never really seems to mature beyond who is s The book starts out with much promise, as Ty and Adele have instant chemistry Even though both

humble himself enough to seek help for his career, as well as put aside his own competitiveness for the sake of the concerns of others Adele, on the other hand, never really seems to mature beyond who is she is introduced in the beginning as She uses the demise of her parents marriage and her mother s promiscuous behavior to validate her avoidance of Ty, and later, her lies to him Even when her mother comes to make amends and change her lifestyle, and she learnsabout her parents marriage, Adele still continues in her own bad behavior Her behavior is also rather hypocritical from what she claims to want from life.The ending was a disappointment simply because Adele never really changed her behavior she only did what she was supposed to thanks to her meddling grandpa If she had actually managed to make herself stop telling lies without being cornered into it, I likely would have liked her This romance novel starts with a rodeo champion down on his luck because his horse, his partner, died Ty Boudeau is blaming all his troubles on the new horse, so in a last ditch effort, he goes to a rodeo training facility to work out.Right off the bat, their troubles start He knows what he s doing He s a star after all He just needs her to work with the horse.Adele Donnelly, owner of the Cowboy College, doesn t agree, seeing deeper issues She forces him to do things her way, all the while This romance novel starts with a rodeo champion down on his luck because his horse, his partner, died Ty Boudeau is blaming all his troubles on the new horse, so in a last ditch effort, he goes to a rodeo training facility to work out.Right off the bat, their troubles start He knows what he s doing He s a star after all He just needs her to work with the horse.Adele Donnelly, owner of the Cowboy College, doesn t agree, seeing deeper issues She forces him to do things her way, all the while fighting a growing attraction between them because she knows all about fickle cowboys.What I liked about it was that it touched on how complex talent is, and all the ways that you can get up in your head and mess with it Like in the movie Bull Durham where the star pitcher s mental coach convinces him to wear a ladies garter belt to keep his mind distracted so his body can pitch His conflicts, their causes and his struggles, read very real to me.Then there s her She s a strong woman without being pushy She knows her business and is confident in that fact She s not cowed by his celebrity either At the same time, she has a vulnerable side that leaves her open to helping him.The ending is the weakest part of the book, but I found enough good to outweigh its influence in my judgment of the read as enjoyable.It s a powerful, emotional story with a lot going on that can be related to circumstances outside of the rodeo, circumstances that affect most of us.I received this book through the Tell Harlequin program, and completed the requested survey This review is my opinions above

characters, including her grandfather and a few of their other guests, are a great addition Ty and Adele were good together, and it was fun to see their relationship develop in spite of her reservations and their reluctance to get involved.But possible SPOILER They did get unexpectedly pregnant and I strongly disliked how Adele chose to handle the situation I realize she had what seemed like valid reasons, but it didn t change my reaction and that turned the rest of the story into a just reading until the end for me.I will likely look for Ms McDavid s other stories, as I quite enjoyed her style otherwise I really liked this book a lot My Description Ty has to go to Cowboy College to refresh his rodeo skills after losing a scholarship He meets Adele, the co owner of Cowboy

then the next, he slugs him, TWICE hide spoiler Regardless, A sweet summer read Romance is in the air, and so is the HEAT While I really enjoyed most of the book, the final 10% was awash in manipulative secrets masquerading as self effacement, and I hate that shit It s a wicked shame, as it was a fairly unique contemporary western until that point The heroine was a genre busting athlete and successful businesswoman who helps the rodeo champ hero reclaim his calf roping prowess Heroine as coach Hero willing to listen to and learn from a woman Amazing This would ve been a 4 star book, easy I thought it well wri While I really enjoyed most of the book, the final 10% was awash in manipulative secrets masquerading as self effacement, and I hate that shit It s a wicked shame, as it was

between the hero and heroine as well as the rich cast of supporting characters But lying to your man to hide your pregnancy for his own good That s what twats do I don t like twats It s a standard Harlequin shortcut, so YMMV It s a major no no for me This was a very good read The sex was minimal, which almost makes it a sweet romance I enjoyed the secondary characters, including the grumpy grandpa Ty was stellar as a hero, and the details about the cowboy lifestyle added a lot of depth I agree with most of the other readers that it fell off a bit at the end when Adele made the decision to break up with Ty and keep her pregnancy secret I actually felt it was a bit out of character for a woman who d been so strong, independent, and smart This was a very good read The sex was minimal,

would definitely read another book from this author
