I was absolutely captivated by this sweet but intense cowboy romance. Jennifer Ryan delivered an emotional and sensitive second chance at love story that had my attention the entire way through.
Eleven years ago Ford Kendrick broke Jamie’s heart when he sent her away with his good intentions. She returned as a wounded warrior who had some pretty intense issues. I had to love both of these amazing characters just so so much. I took to Jamie right away and rooted for her to overcome her adversities so she could be with the love of her life. I loved Ford for being so sweet and persistent and standing by Jamie when she felt so alone. These two characters and the gripping mystery that surfaced had me enthralled.
The writing was absolute perfection on this one. Jennifer Ryan spun a beautiful story for these amazing characters and I loved watching Ford and Jamie get their second chance to be together. They both worked at the relationship even when it was hard at times. At heart I felt this story was about courage, trust, and true love. On an emotional level I feel like His Cowboy Heart is one of the best books that I’ve read in a while. It doesn’t get any more romantic for this reader.
