Rule #1: No Dating Cowboys.

A fake fiancé doesn’t count, right? Oh boy . . .

Amy Weaver is tired of her dad meddling in her love life. Fed up, she hires an actor to play the part of her fake cowboy fiancé when she goes home for her grandpa’s ninetieth birthday. Sure, Luke Jenkins has got looks, charm, and muscular legs, but this is business, pure and simple. Things are fine and dandy until she finds out he’s a real cowboy, not an actor. Now, she’s stuck between a rock and his chiseled jawline, falling faster than a sack of horseshoes. How the heck is Amy supposed to ignore the sparks between them and stick to her rule of not dating cowboys? All bets are off.

My Review

This is not my first rodeo with Mr Amooi….sorry could not resist! For those who know me and speak to me. I always bang on about Mr Amooi and how his book Five Minutes late got me out of my reading slump…if you didn’t you do now! Mr Amooi’s books never let me down and this book is just the same!

I always fly through his books, I got this done in one sitting, when I open the page (or turn the kindle on) I am done for. His writing is magical, it sucks me into the story and the journey I get to go onto with our two star crossed lovers.

This book had all the lovey feels, I mean who would not love a cowboy! Especially one as hot as Luke! There is more than meets the eye with this hot diggory guy, and his eye is firmly on Amy, our heroine of the book. She is shutting herself off from love and is working in a hotel where she does not want to be. She has forgotten her dreams, and in walks Luke, could he be the one that helps her. But first…he is a cowboy and he has to be her fake fiancé!!

This book is fun, the fake fiancé was fun to read, the meeting of Amy’s family, the hilarious grandpa and grams. Aunt Barbara who wants to share all her lotions and then the standoffish dad and the ex Nathan who keeps turning up like a bad smell. Everyone had a part to play, and they played it well. Plus with the miscommunications and secrets you know only then the story is complete and it is no different here! And the banter is a hoot and gave me a good giggle, the flirting was steamy and left Amy quite breathless at times!

Being set in Julian, California sounded awesome and I felt like I could picture the town clearly and it is somewhere I would love to visit. I have already told the boy I want to live in Texas so this place would be perfect!

So we can all tell where the story is going..but that does not matter. Who cares if you know the end already, it is the adventure we go to with them and you know what you may guess the ending but Mr Amooi always gives you more than you thought.

I can never and will never get bored with his books. Each time I see his name on a book I want, so much, in fact, I think I may go and treat myself to a few more… I mean I do deserve it, I have been good already so far this year!!

This book had me smiling throughout with the comedic aspect as well as the love, I mean I do love a happy ending and a good romance book.

It still amazes me how well he get into a woman’s psyche (yes I know I said that last time!) but his portrayal of women is spot on in my mind. He gets the angst, the love, the need and desire spot on, and add in a mans’ point of view in this book and you are onto a winner in my eyes.

Each book I read, I fall in love more and more with the different characters but the magic of his writing and stories that are told. I love the covers of the books they emanate fun and cute perfectly which is exactly what this story is. Wow, this is a lot of gushing but it is so thoroughly deserved!

For me Rich Amooi is an author that delivers time and time again and I urge you all to go and check out his books!

So if you do not believe me what has been said so far on the tour?

Chick Lit Central says

This was my first experience with a Rich Amooi read, and after reading There’s Something About A Cowboy, it won’t be my last! Amooi created characters who are strong and well defined, with quick witted banter that flowed easily between Amy and her potential love interest, Luke.

Rae Reads book blog says

There’s Something About a Cowboy instantly pulled me in with witty writing that had me smiling throughout. It really is a brilliant feel good story and I loved every moment!
