Thanks go to the publisher and Net-Galley for the complimentary copy of Forever my Cowboy by June Faver. I voluntarily agreed to read and review this book prior to publication. My opinions are my own, and no one has influenced them.
Forever my Cowboy is an emotionally charged romance with engaging characters and a great plot. The pacing is excellent and kept me enmeshed from the first page to the last. Ms. Faver adds an authentic feel of Texas ranching, and that helped pull me into the story. The adorable little ones contributed as well.
Jennifer LaChance’s character took a little time to pull me in because she isn’t immediately lovable in the beginning, but Ms. Faver redeems her and had me rooting for her well before the end of the tale. At first, she came across as lacking empathy since she didn’t take into account the hero’s grief. However, her desire to do right by her late brother’s children is admirable and had me warming to her character.
Cade Garrett is an interesting hero. At first, he makes a snap judgment regarding Jennifer, but he soon realizes his mistake. I enjoyed his character and quickly wanted him to get the girl, and his adorable niece and nephew. He’s not an alpha male which is what is normally found in this genre, and it was a refreshing change, giving the story a touch of difference.
The romance between Jennifer and Cade takes some time to heat up, since the plot places them on opposite sides regarding the children. The couple do have a good bit of chemistry as the story progresses, and I wanted them to find their happy ending.
If you enjoy western contemporary romance with characters that will touch your heart and a plot that offers more than just a love story, then you will love Forever my Cowboy. There are several suspenseful scenes that I enjoyed a lot. The whodunit it quality is excellent, and I wasn’t sure who the culprit is until close to the climax. Happy reading!
