When the love of his life is injured in combat, Ryan Michaels promises himself he won’t let any more time go by without ensuring she knows that he loves her. His problem? Ashley still sees him as the goofy high school kid that followed her everywhere.
Ashley Reynolds returns home to Redbud Trails, Oklahoma, a wounded veteran, with her Military Working Dog at her side. She’s concerned about her aging parents and doesn’t have time for a relationship–especially not one with a college dropout like Ryan.
But as Ashley dives back into the life she left behind, she discovers there’s much more to Ryan than she thought… there’s a man of honor and integrity. Will she open her heart and let Ryan in?
My daughter had a dentist appointment today and I figured I could get most of this read while waiting for her. With Love, Cowboy is a short sweet novella with a hard working, humble hero. I really liked Ryan, he is the type of guy I hope my daughters end up with. Although he’s more of a fairy tale prince than what you are likely to find in reality. I’ve yet to come across any guy who is as selfless, kind, thoughtful, patient and giving as he was.
Due to the length of this story we don’t get a lot of time to connect with and understand the characters. I had a little trouble believing that Ashley never once opened one of Ryan’s letters but hung on to them for all those years. Even still I enjoyed reading this sweet story of devotion and love.
For those who enjoy sweet clean romance this is worth reading.
