SYNOPSIS: After drinking a bottle of wine, Harper tells her business rival that she recently got engaged. Once the hangover wears off, Harper realizes she now needs a fake fiancé or to admit she lied. Wanting to avoid the backlash, she asks her childhood best friend for a favor. She can pretend she’s not in love with him, but her traitorous body reveals otherwise.
Ethan Bishop will do anything for Harper, even if it’s crazy and means risking his heart. Pretending to be engaged to the woman he’s always loved proves to be difficult—especially when repressed feelings bubble to the surface. He only wants to help, but everyone in his life sees through his façade.
It’s hard to know what’s real or fake when their private moments turn intimate. When they cross the line and fall between the sheets, the truth is undeniable. Just as they feared, their friendship’s no longer the same. However, one thing’s certain—there’s no going back now.
Kissing the cowboy is Book 5 in the Circle B Ranch Series!
Kissing the Cowboy is a complete stand-alone and can be read without reading any of the other books or spin-off series, but if you prefer to read in order, start with Hitching the Cowboy as the characters and families do interconnect. Suggested for mature readers only.
REVIEW: Well, Ethan was an absolute delight. Seriously, SWOON. The way he cares for and supports Harper is a damn dream. Him and Harper has been friends their entire lives, so they’ve shared almost everything with one another. Well, EXCEPT those pesky feelings they’ve both developed for one another. It’s always interesting as the reader having the insight that both characters are totally in love with each other, yet not having any way to help them along. You just have read and see the wild journey they go on to figure it all out. And I do love a good fake relationship romance, let me tell you! Plus, Harper is a great female character. She’s so driven! Romance reads like these are great, because you know the characters belong together. They deserve that HEA and it’s fun watching them find it.
Thank you to Kennedy Fox for the eARC in exchange for an honest review!
