Book Review: A Cowboy to Remember by Rebekah Weatherspoon

With a headline spot on a hit morning show and truly mouth-watering culinary skills, chef Evie Buchanan is perched on the edge of stardom. But at an industry party, a fall lands Evie in the hospital—with no memory of who she is. Scrambling to help, Evie’s assistant contacts the only “family” Evie has left, close friends who run the luxury dude ranch in California where Evie grew up. Evie has no recollection of them—until former rodeo champion Zach Pleasant walks into her hospital room, and she realizes his handsome face has been haunting her dreams . . .

Zach hasn’t seen Evie in years—not since their families conducted a campaign to make sure their childhood friendship never turned into anything more. When the young cowboy refused to admit the feelings between them were real, Evie left California, making it clear she never wanted to see Zach again. Now he refuses to make the same mistake twice. Starting fresh is a risk when they have a history she can’t recall, but Zach can’t bear to let go of her now. Can he awaken the sleeping beauty inside her who might still love him?- Goodreads

I had read the excerpt for this book through Netgalley some months ago and was pissed because I got sucked into the book and didn’t realize that it was a excerpt. This book takes your attention instantly and you just want more.

I liked this book but I didn’t love it. I liked the fact that the author took her time to build up the characters not just Evie and Zach but everyone. It was such a relief to see that the author didn’t rush the overall story. But with that being said, this book is slow. A whole lot of nothing happens for a very long time and I am not talking about the romance. Nothing really happened and with that being said the romance wasn’t spectacular either. It was hard for me to believe Evie and Zach and that was disappointing.

However, with that being said, I loved Zach’s brother and I hope that book two is from his brother’s point of view and his love story.

Overall, not a bad beginning to a series but there needed a bigger spark and much more investment to keep things going and going as strong as the beginning of the book was.

Enjoy this Quick Five© with Addison Moore:

 

You worked as a therapist on a locked psychiatric unit for a long time before becoming a author . . . what made you decide to give up that career or put it on pause to become an author?

I loved my job on the unit. No two days were ever alike. Unfortunately, due to budget cuts, the unit eventually closed and thus, I was out of work.

You run a full household (Four children, husband, two dogs) how are you able to still be creative and productive regarding your writing?

 I have no time whatsoever to do anything, lol! That’s actually true and yet somehow things still get done. I file that under miracles.

What is it about paranormal romance that gets the blood going for you as an author and reader?

The element I love most is that anything can happen. In reality we’re limited in just about every capacity but in the paranormal world there are endless possibilities. I love that.

Was it easy for you to transition your writing style from young adult to adult romance?

 I wouldn’t say that I transitioned more than I’m doing both now. I still have a YA series to complete (The Countenance) and I’m still very much interested in doing other projects. I like having my feet in both pools.

 Finally, what is influencing you for your second “Celestra Knights” series?

Actually Celestra Knights was just a gift to my readers so they could finally hear Gage and Logan’s voices after all theses years. Ethereal Knights was Ethereal rewritten through the boys’ eyes. I’m not sure if I’ll continue but if I do it will be a slower endeavor. I am moving Skyla and her friends forward into a New Adult series that should debut later in the year and the name of that series is Celestra Forever After. I have a few jaw dropping surprises in store for readers and of course there will be adult adventures and I think that will be fun!
