From friends to lovers…what could possibly go wrong?
For this week’s edition of Thursday Throwback, I took another look at Take Me, Cowboy by Maisey Yates, the first book in the bestselling author’s Copper Ridge Desires series that released in April 2016. I first read the book years ago, but after recently purchasing a print copy of Yates’ The Rancher’s Wager, I was delightfully surprised to find this book as a bonus read.
Have you read Take Me, Cowboy by Maisey Yates? It came out years ago, but if you missed it, you’re in luck because it’s still available in e-book and it’s freshly available in print as a bonus read in the back of the author’s most recent Harlequin Desire release, The Rancher’s Wager. But be forewarned, this book has some steamy-hot, seriously well-done love scenes between two people who deserve much more than they let themselves believe they should have.
Anna is a character who has kept herself apart from everyone out of fear of never fitting in, of never being the kind of girly-girl that men like her best friend Chase pursue. Chase has kept himself at a distance from people out of fear of getting too close and losing everything. Then comes Anna’s bet with her two older brothers: find a date for an important charity event hosted by the West family, or pay up. With her pride on the line, Anna enlists Chase’s help to become more desirable to men, not realizing her quest, along with her newfound attraction to Chase and his to her, would complicate the platonic friendship they’ve always had with each other. Now, thanks to the bet, Chase’s idea of a fake relationship, and Anna’s newfound boldness, Anna and Chase embark on something completely new, completely foreign to them both: sex between friends.
If you like your romance hot and steamy, and your relationships complicated and shiny, Take Me, Cowboy by Maisey Yates is a great book to revisit, or to check out for the very first time. I’ve read it twice now and I seriously appreciate the way Maisey presents her characters, develops their stories, and brings us along on their journey to love. So, so good.
TAKE ME, COWBOY
From USA TODAY bestselling author Maisey Yates
This sexy rancher is her best friend…but can he be more?
She’s just one of the boys, but with a new business in Copper Ridge, Anna Brown needs to change that. Her brothers bet she can’t land a date for a fancy charity event. So Anna turns to her best friend—the hottest bachelor in town—for advice.
Rancher Chase McCormack wants in on that gala. If Anna takes him, he promises to turn her into a lady. But the makeover reveals what he’s long suspected—Anna’s irresistible! Is his best friend prepared to be taken—heart, body and soul—by her very own cowboy?
