BLOG TOUR: One Tough Cowboy (Review + Giveaway)

First in a brand-new series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Lora Leigh and Veronica Chadwick about one man’s pursuit of justice—and unbridled desire. 


For as long as Samantha can remember, Hunter—a man as strong as steel, with a heart of gold—has been her hero. It came as no surprise to Samantha when she found out that the ranch-hardened cowboy who always protected her from bullies went on to become the town’s sheriff. What does surprise her is how incredibly hot he still is. And how much she still wants him…


And, lo and behold, Hunter still has feelings for Samantha. The long-smoldering heat of their innocent flirtation has grown into a full-raging fire. But when tragedy strikes, and their small-town community is shattered, Hunter vows to do everything he can to keep his childhood sweetheart safe. But can Samantha trust that Hunter has her best interests at heart…and that, after all these years, his love is true?

One Tough Cowboy is the first in a new series from Lora Leigh and Veronica Chadwick. I was a little wary to read it at first because in the past I've found Lora Leigh's writing style to be slightly confusing. However, I'm a sucker for cowboys and western romance is one of my favorite sub-genres. Add suspense to the plot and I've got my next weekend read!

Samantha was the wild child who looked to Hunter for protection. He's older and strong enough to fight off her bullies. Fast-forward to the present, Hunter is the sheriff of Deerhaven and Samantha has come back to town for her aunt's funeral. Now an officer herself, Sam won't rest until she discovers the truth behind the suspicious deaths of Deerhaven residents, including her aunt's.

The corruption in their small town was just a theory. When Hunter and Sam start working together the stakes are raised and learning the truth is even more dangerous. On the surface, the story seems like a typical small-town romance, but after meeting the determined hero and heroine of the story you know that you're in for a fast-paced romance with a side of action. The dynamic between Hunter and Sam is hot enough to melt the pages! I loved how they worked together on, and off, the case even when they didn't get along. It was like their relationship was inevitable even before there was sexual attraction between them. Readers who enjoy Donna Grant's Heart of Texas series will definitely dig One Tough Cowboy.

One Tough Cowboy is not a predictable story. Not to say that there are a lot of plot twists and turns, but it unfolded in a unique manner that kept me wondering where it was going. I can't wait to see where the next book in the series takes readers because it looks like it's going to be an enjoyable ride!
