Cowgirls Don't Cry by Lorelei James, 304 pages, read by Nikki, on 05/08/2012

Ok! Hold on to your boots here while I explain this wild dramatic story! Jessie McKay married Luke McKay, a cowboy that works on his large family ranch. Jessie’s husband Luke was anything but faithful during their marriage. Luke died in a car accident and 2 years later Luke’s younger brother Brandt approaches Jessie asking for help in raising his young son he fathered while he was married to her. The mother of the young boy has to serve time in jail for 2 DUI’s. Jessie agrees on a few conditions…one being that Brandt sleeps with her and only her during the duration they watch her dead husbands illegitimate son.

This was my first ever romance book and boy was it all I expected and more!! Typically romance books don’t interest me one bit, but this one actually had a really good story line that I liked, plus a few love scenes that were shocking but oh so enjoyable at the same time! This book was actually the 10th in the Rough Rider series. I did not read the other books in the series, but was able to follow along with all the characters without having to read the whole series.
