A Real Cowboy by Sarah M Anderson

Now that she’s found him, how can she let go?

Producer Thalia Thorne’s career is on the line. She’s promised to lure James Robert Bradley back to the
limelight, no matter what it takes. But once in Montana, she sees that J.R. has built a new life for himself—as a real-life cowboy—and Thalia finds it hard to resist the man he’s become….

Then a blizzard strikes. Suddenly they’re alone, with only body heat to keep them warm. When the snow melts, she’ll have to choose: go back to the big city—or sacrifice everything for the man she can’t let go.

My thoughts:
Thalia is a producer from Hollywood. She has volunteered an old actor for an upcoming movie. She has no clue where to find him so goes to the man agent who spills all to her. Off to Montana she goes to hunt for James Robert Bradley. When she finds him he is all that she remember from her crush years ago. When J.R. and Hoss, his ranch hand, noticed her one of them is not thrilled to have her on his property.

J.R. is mad as hell with this woman being here how did she find him. Thalia hurries to tell her story and the answer is a flat out no. He quit the business and doesn’t want any part of it now. Thalia is not going to take no for an answer and ends up staying for dinner to J.R.’s surprise.

Can she convince this crush of hers to take the job to save her own job? Can she stop herself from falling for the man she really wants?

A lovely read that took me away from the first page.  The story is so well written you can’t help but want to turn the pages and find out what is going to happen between Thalia and J.R.  To what length will she go to win over J.R. and save her job.  The characters work wonderfully together.  The secondary characters are just as good.  You love Hoss and his mother.  The banter between them all is heart warming.  You can’t help but fall in love with each of them.

The best part of the book for me what the blizzard scenes.  The closeness the two share and the realization that Thalia likes J.R. for himself and not for the actor he once was.  Blows the reader away how she opens this rugged man up to love.

A highly recommended read.
