3 cowboys...2 weeks...1 wedding!

Three all-new stories by Kim Law, Terri Osburn, and Liz Talley

Claire, Georgia, and Mary Catherine couldn’t be more different, but they promised they would be there for one another no matter what. And when they all gather in Holly Hills, Texas, for Mary Catherine’s Christmas wedding, they’ll find they have one thing in common: hearts that are about to be branded—by unforgettable cowboys.

In “Love Me, Cowboy” by Terri Osburn, wallflower Claire would be more excited about the wedding if it didn’t mean running into Mary Catherine’s brother—the bull rider she once had a scorching one-night stand with…

Ivy League volleyball coach Georgia never wanted to see Holly Hills—or another cowboy—again. But a sexy veterinarian is making her rethink her vow to never marry a Texas man in “Kiss Me, Cowboy” by Liz Talley.

Claire and Georgia both think that Mary Catherine is getting hitched to the wrong man, despite how perfect he is. And in “Marry Me, Cowboy” by Kim Law, a local rancher with a wild reputation gives Mary Catherine a glimpse of what might have been—and what could still be...

I loved the way these three authors intertwined three fun love stories into one. I thought it was a cool way to showcase these two weeks. It gave it a three dimensional feel. We get to see how the other characters viewed the others, or viewed different situations, or even noticed things you didn’t think about. Each of the three stories starts on the first day they step onto the scene. I will admit that by the third story, Mary Catherine’s, I was rushing through a lot of the details because I felt like I knew what was going on by then. I just wanted to get to the good stuff! And by good stuff I mean the cowboys. haha

In “Love Me, Cowboy” by Terri Osburn, Claire was a character who was sweet but really needed to stand up for herself at times. And Ty… Oh, Ty. He was fun and sweet and really hot! These two could’ve been together for YEARS if they’d just found the courage to talk honestly to each other.

Georgia in “Kiss Me, Cowboy” by Liz Talley had a few hang-ups regarding her past and Holly Hills, the town these stories take place. She’s one of those hard candies with a gooey center, that girl. I liked her, but she could be stubborn. Reed was just the sweetest guy you’ll ever meet. But get that guy alone and DAMN! Let’s just say he knows what he’s doing when it comes to women. And he’s not even a ladies man! I’m glad these two found each other and fell instantly for one another. They’re perfect. :)

It really felt like this book really revolved around Mary Catherine from “Marry Me, Cowboy” by Kim Law. All of the stories begin with them getting together for MC’s wedding. And a lot of the times Claire and Georgia worried about what was going on with her. MC had the most intriguing of the stories. She was getting married in two weeks and she was having a little trouble keeping her feelings for Jax, the guy who broke her heart at 18, buried. And he is having trouble staying away from her. They’re an emotional mess over each other because years can’t really come between what they have. But what about the fiance, you ask? Well, lets just say that while he’s nice, he’s no Jax. This story keeps you on the edge of your seat right until the end.

Cowboys for Christmas was a fun, different kind of love story. Each author puts their own personal touches and make each woman unique. They all have a distinct voice but still manage to make it mesh really well. If you’re a fan of friends, Texas, cowboys, romance, and crazy small town folks, then add this to your TBR. :)
