When I requested 🎧︎A Cowboy Kind of Love for, I did not know it was the sixth novel in the Heart of Texas series. Fortunately, it works well as a standalone. However, now that I have been introduced to this world, and its characters, I have an intense need to read the previous books in the series. In this installment, readers are treated to a second chance romance filled with suspense and passion.

Who wants to rodeo again?

Jace Wilder has been rebuilding his life since the love of his life, Taryn, up and left town unexpectedly. But when she mysteriously returns, Jace’s dependable world comes crashing down. Taryn is hiding a dangerous secret, and no matter how hard he tries, Jace can’t stay away―especially when Taryn is at risk. And especially when the attraction he thought he’d buried long ago is back and hotter than ever. Will he be able to trust Taryn again?
Taryn Hillman’s world fell apart one horrifying night, and it’s never been the same since. When she sees a small chance at untangling herself, she takes it, though it means returning to Clearview – and seeing Jace again. But when he vows to protect her, will Taryn take a chance, and this time, never let him go?

🎧︎A Cowboy Kind of Love is Jace Wilder and Taryn Hillman’s story. At the start of the story, Jace struggles with a broken heart. The love of his life left town without saying goodbye, and with no means of contacting her. Since then, he’s been drinking himself into oblivion, trying to numb the pain. The situation worsened whenever an anniversary of an event in their relationship came around. At the point when he recognizes he needs to take control of his life and move on, Taryn returns. When she explains the reason for her sudden disappearance, Jace scrambles to provide the help she needs.

Taryn left with her family five years ago for an unknown location in the middle of the night. She returned to Clearview, Texas, seeking help to escape her hellish life of the past five years. She didn’t intend for Jace to get involved, but circumstances caused her to seek his help to escape the hellish situation, which will place them and their friends in danger.


Tarryn’s heart was in the right place regarding her family. Loyal to a fault where they are concerned, but her blind loyalty placed her in a precarious position. Even when things stared her in the face, she held on, hoping for a change for the better.

The chemistry between Jace and Tarryn sizzled and popped. They made a great team. Their romance felt authentic. Despite the years apart, they easily picked up from where they left off. Their feelings for each other never faded. Although it surprised me that Jace never once questioned the veracity of Tarryn’s story concerning the reason for her disappearance.

I loved the bonds of friendship portrayed in the story. Jace friends never hesitated to offer their help to Tarryn, despite the danger involved. This fast-paced and engaging story kept me on my toes. The story delivered lots of suspense and jaw dropping twists. One of those twists shocked me beyond belief.

Rebecca Estrella did a great job in narrating 🎧︎A Cowboy Kind of Love. The story features a vast array of characters and she handled them well. I loved her male and female voices and how well her tone captured the scenes, especially the emotional ones. This is my first time listening to her and I would definitely listen to her again. 

🎧︎A Cowboy Kind of Love was a satisfying read.  A story that took the reader on a journey of suspense and a second chance love story. Perfect for fans of cowboy romance.
