Kissed by a Cowboy by Debra Clopton

Cassidy was looking for a home and a place to belong . . . not for a cowboy to steal her heart.

Having lived through her parents’ endless string of “matrimonial bliss gone wrong,” Cassidy Starr knows when the odds are not in her favor. Divorced and humiliated, her faith on rocky ground, Cassidy is through with love. She’s been bucked off that horse far too many times. Instead, she returns to Wishing Springs, Texas, and the rundown farm she’s inherited from her great aunt Roxie. She’ll reopen the strawberry farm and a bed & breakfast and follow in her aunt’s footsteps, remaining forever-independent, happy . . . and single.
Rancher Jarrod Monahan’s hands are full running the ranch, looking after his ailing grandfather, and chasing down a group of rustlers on the loose. He’s pushed his longing for a family to the bottom of his list of priorities. Besides, he was in love once but ran scared and lost his shot at happiness. But suddenly, the biggest regret of his life has moved in next door with a wounded heart, determined to become a spinster . . . and that’s a challenge that Jarrod can’t pass up.
Jarrod sets his mind to breaking down the walls around Cassidy’s stubborn heart. How can he show her that a cowboy’s kiss lasts forever? For the good folks of Wishing Springs, falling in love has never been so much fun to witness.

My Thoughts:
I was glad to be able to return to Wishing Springs as this book is filled with second chances. This is the third book in the series, but don't worry if you haven't read the first two, it can be read as a stand alone, which is perfect, but I absolutely recommend the first two books! You'll read this book in the first sitting if you have the opportunity, especially with the weather being awful depending on where you life. I love the story line about a man, Jarrod who knows exactly what he wants and who he wants and will go at great lengths to get her, despite her own stubbornness.  I loved the character dynamics between Jarrod and Cassidy. This is one of those books that you don't want to miss! Overall, I just loved this book because it isn't a romance novel, but the characters deal with some difficult life stuff, which we can all relate too, which makes this book more real life and I loved that. Thank you to Thomas Nelson for providing me a complimentary copy for review. I give this book 5 stars for content, strong story line and real character connection to the reader.
