Review: A Cowboy Kind of Thing by Reese Ryan
A COWBOY KIND OF THING
WELCOME TO THE WEDDING
A Cowboy Kind of Thing by Reese Ryan is the first book in The Texas Cattlemen’s Club: The Wedding miniseries with Harlequin Desire. It sets up what is sure to be another fantastic Texas Cattlemen’s Club series by six amazing romance authors.
There are certain books that ensnare your attention right away. For me, A Cowboy Kind of Thing by Reese Ryan was one of those books. The two leads, Dionna Reed and Tripp Noble, were utterly enthralling from the first page, the first word. Not only were there internal thoughts ringing true, to me, but their chemistry was both immediate and electric. In fact, by the time I hit the 25% mark, I was already shipping them together and the book had barely even begun. Their banter was fun, their dialogue engaging, and their attraction palpable.
In the story, Dionna is in Royal, Texas, to help her friend start planning for her wedding—except her friend quickly informs her that she isn’t coming. She’s stuck on a film set and won’t be able to make it. And to make matters worse, her fiancé also can’t make it, as he’s extending his book tour, but his cousin and best friend, Tripp, will be filling in for him. Which means Dionna and Trip have to work together to help out the two people closest to them and help them achieve their dream wedding.
Is that not a fun premise? It instantly set the story in motion, giving Dionna and Tripp the chance to all but leap off every single page. And they did. They were brilliantly written and whether alone or together, they were fun, dynamic, and absolutely charming. Tripp, having somewhat of a reputation with the ladies, was the perfect hero to compliment Dionna’s more serious side, and both were able to bring out something new and delightful in the other.
A Cowboy Kind of Thing had me smiling all throughout my reading of it, and toward the end, I was so invested, I was tearing up in a couple of spots. I really enjoyed the characters and the story, and I can’t wait to read what comes next in the series.
Read this story if you love forced proximity, opposites attract, working together, a loveable cowboy who thinks the heroine is off-limits to him, a career-minded city girl who thinks the hero is a player, and a story that has a sense of community, family, and friendship woven throughout.
A cowboy and a career-focused city girl can’t agree on anything—until they fall into bed...
