What would it take to tame a wild cowboy?
One minute, Rhett Lockhart is a love ‘em and leave ‘em bull rider with a slow, sexy smile, a swagger, and not a care in the world. The next, he learns his free-wheeling days are over: a baby has been abandoned in the hospital, and there’s no question: he’s the father. But from the first moment he gazes into his daughter’s eyes, he knows the moment has come to say ‘no’ to no-strings. It’s time to grow up.
Standing in his way is the baby’s foster mother, Tara Alzate, who doesn’t quite believe Rhett is ready to change his ways. Still, she’s not not immune to his considerable charms. So when he proposes a marriage of convenience and shared custody, against her better judgement, she says “I do.” Can Tara tame this wild cowboy and make her own, long-buried dreams come true?
To Tame a Wild Cowboy by Lori Wilde is a super sweet yet sexy read. The tough one nighter cowboy soon hangs up his hat to become the father his baby girl he needs. That alone had me eating up cowboy, Rhett Lockhart. The fact that he’s quit his bachelor ways to do what’s right for his child melts my heart. I was hooked. He was the bait, and my falling for him was unstoppable.
Lori Wilde created a unique twist to hot cowboys like Rhett. Most of them are forced to reckon with the consequences of their one night affairs. Yet this hot man, instantly vows to do everything for his baby girl. He took responsibility seriously enough without needing a push. He owned up to his actions.
Then, there’s single mom, Tara. She is his baby girl’s adoptive mother. However, she does not think Rhett will do anything but party. A part of her hopes the wild cowboy does in fact settle for the long commitment. Before too long, both end up with in heated situation that could lead to a happily ever after. Only they will have to put their fears aside, and let their hearts guide them.
Lori Wilde creates a beautiful story. I could not stop rooting for both characters. Especially, for Rhett. I wanted him to prove to Tara he could be what he said he would be. A daddy for his little girl. Overall, I was swept away with every page. Humor, romance, and hope were major themes. I recommend it to all.
