MOBI ☆ One Lucky Cowboy ´ Carolyn Brown

One Lucky CowboyJane Day is on the run from the paid assassin who had been her fiancé In Wichita Falls Texas she meets Nellie Luckadeau a spitfire of an old lady who desperately needs someone to work on her ranch But Nelli I have enjoyed this author’s Lucky Penny Ranch series so I grabbed this one when I saw it I didn’t realize it is a re release from 2009This story does not flow well The writing is not cohesive it jumps around and is missing pockets of info right from the beginning Characters are dropped in without explanation as to who they are or how they fit in the story Jane Day is a running away from less than ideal circumstances She somehow ends up getting off her bus and meeting Nellie Nellie needs a driver and hires Jane a complete unknown for the job She takes Jane back to her ranch where her grandson Slade is understandably concerned However how he expresses his unhappiness is rude condescending and obnoxious I’m assuming the “banter” between Slade and Jane is supposed to be funny but it was just mean irritating ridiculous and asinine Nellie and her sister Ellen I think are supposed to come across as full of life entertaining old ladies I liked Nellie but wasn’t crazy about Ellen’s character Ellen is made out to be a major partier who drinks too much repeatedly and gets behind the wheel to drive And the family jokes about it Nope Not ok in any way shape or form I didn’t enjoy any part of what I’d read to this point So I’m not going to finish it I will be looking much closer at pub dates for this author in the future and sticking with newer releases I voluntarily reviewed a copy provided by NetGalley and the publisher

Nce Jane to leave he pours on the charm to make her spill what she's up to She's happy to play along but she's not going to let this hot hostile cowboy run her off his land when all she needs is a lucky brea Where to beginwhile there are scenes of this book that are amusing and somewhat entertaining there is a great deal of it that is just plain awful The dialogue is stilted and unnatural What I am assuming is supposed to be banter between the main characters doesn't sound like the way two adults with two brain cells to rub together would talk There are some genuinely amusing moments between Jane and Slade but then the very next moment there are inane catfights in parking lots and Walmarts no less that make you wonder Who are these people and what Jerry Springer show did they escape from? Was the author going for a hardworking salt of the Earth kind of thing with these characters? They're wealthy and they've got good old fashioned values? Not likely Both of the main characters of this book Slade and Jane prove that having money obviously does not give you tact or knowledge or class for that matter They argue like middle schoolers Seriously I was waiting for Jane to tell Slade I know you are but what am I? The heroine has a few tirades where she says Nobody calls me white trash and I found myself thinking Well stop acting like it And did we really have to read about the lyrics to every song they heard andor danced to? Or the plot lines of the films they watched? Or the scenes where Jane and Slade dance and the rest of the people present all gather around them to watch and cheer It's the type of thing a pre pubescent girl pictures because she thinks it sounds dreamy romantic and sweet Then she hopefully grows up and realizes how tacky it all is Honestly the characters of this book secondary as well as primary prove to be tactless ignorant low class people who are chugging down too much heart stoppin food and massive amounts of liuor all so they can end up at the wedding ceremony barefoot and pregnant no less and head on over to their double wide trailerwhoooo weeeee Instead of charming they're along the line of slack jawed yokels that tip toe dangerously close to the line of Deliverance hmmm there are several references to a pigI'm just saying Yikes There's the happily ever after every girl dreams of
