Billionaires, cowboys, and romance collide during the holidays in this next book in the River Ranch series!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year at the Ford family ranch. Will one cowboy’s homecoming be the greatest gift of all?
He left town and never looked back.
Cody Ford is a Wall Street honcho with humble Texas roots. This holiday season, he’d be content to just stay in New York and not face his family—and dodge their questions about when and with whom he plans to settle down. . .and if he will do so back at home. But his father isn’t getting any younger, and Cody doesn’t want to miss any last chances to see him and the rest of the folks back on the ranch. The last person Cody was expecting to see? His one-time girlfriend, Lexi Murphy, who’s been working as his dad’s new live-in nurse.
She never forgot him. Can she ever forgive him?
Lexi still holds a grudge against Cody. Back then, the college-bound heartthrob believed he was too good for a small-town girl like Lexi. But now Cody can’t help but see her in a whole new light. Could it be that this beautiful single mother with an unbeatable can-do spirit is the one he’s been waiting for all along? That depends on whether Cody can prove to Lexi that, this time, he means business—and if a sudden snowstorm can lend just the right amount of Christmas magic to help move things along. . .
Once Upon a Cowboy Christmas by Soraya Lane is a magical second chance story. Two young people are brought together again and given another opportunity. These character are charming. I could not help but to love them. They were really easy to like. There was a fiery storm in the form of a single mom and one time love, Lexi. Lexi has every reason for distrusting and resisting the hot cowboy, Cody. Cody left her and never came back. That takes a toll on any young girl. Now, time has gone by and they’re both stuck together. Another storm is brewing and they might just survive it.
Each character had an inner battle to figure out as well, as what they want to do in the future. Cody wasn’t sure about his. I kind of was not sure if I would like him. He sounded like a coward for running off…but then he grew on me. The more I knew about him, the more I liked him. The same for Lexi.
Soraya Lane has created a beautiful plot. Characters that I can relate to. Ones I will never forget. The plot was juicy and full of both secrets and spice. Overall, this contemporary romance was a must read.
