Once Upon a Cowboy by Maggie McGinnis

 I love this series, I loved the book just before this one, so when I saw this book I knew I had to read it. I have to admit in Hayley’s book I was super interested in what was going to happen with Jess and Cole, they seem to avoid acting on the attraction that they have for each other, which can only mean pent up tension and a great payoff at the end. So Jess was super interesting to me. She has more of a past then the other two women in this series, Kyla and Hayley, so in a lot of ways she was more interesting to me then the others were. She has such a hard history, her past is so sad, you can’t help but feel for the her and especially for the girl she used to be living in an impossible situation. I will say that I love her grandfather for doing the best he could, he really saved her. So while you get told Jess’s past in flashbacks throughout the book, her past is certainly not in the past, when the book starts and she is heading out for Hayley’s wedding, her past suddenly shows up in her mailbox. Cole in an interesting character. He is of course the hot cowboy that you remember from the other books in the series, but you finally get a good glimpse at him in this book.

So Hayley is in town for a wedding, but normally she lives in the big city where she takes care of the world’s most pampered pets, which it turns out isn’t really her favorite clientele. Hayley meet Daniel, who is also a vet, but a rural country vet, the kind of vet Hayley wishes she could have been. The two of them have a connection decently quick, and it turns out Hayley is able to really help Daniel out, since he’s got a lot going on in his life. But she lives far away, and he’s in the middle of a custody battle with his in-laws over his twin girls. Needless to say they have some obstacles in their relationship. I really loved that Hayley takes so well to Daniel’s daughter. You could tell how much she wanted them to like her, and she tries so hard to make sure that they do like her and she does right by them. She’s just genuinely a nice girl. I loved some of the scenes she and Daniel have together with animals, when she’s helping him out. I thought that the two of them got some of there best get to know you talks […]
