The Billionaire Cowboy by Mandy Baxter

I have such a hard time with novellas, and I wish I didn’t. I don’t know why but I would rather sit and read a slow paced super long novel then a really good novella, I mean there is only so much character development you can do in such a short amount of time (the exception to this of course is novellas that go along with a series). But since I really love Mandy Baxter (aka Amanda Bonilla) I went ahead and gave this one a shot, plus I love a good cowboy. So right of the bat I will tell you what I didn’t like and why I gave this a three star. It literally all comes down to length.

Plus I always love a man in uniform, and this book promised me a hot U.S. Marshal so it was a pretty easy sell for me to try out this book. I went back and forth on my feelings for Harper. I loved that she was smart and that she was ambitious. I loved that her job was such an important part of the story, being a political reporter always makes me think about House of Cards, which I love. I think it’s ingrained into reporters that they should push limits to get the story, so it totally made sense to me that Harper was always pushing back against the rules in order to find out the truth. But on the same hand, I sometimes really wanted to shake her. Harper ends up in protective custody after a witnessing a murder of a member of congress, and it’s pretty clear that someone is out to silence her as well. At first I found her antics to be enjoyable, but there were a couple of instances later on in the book where I started to get annoyed with her, like did she have […]
