My Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars
A year's worth of novellas from twelve inspirational romance authors. Happily ever after guaranteed.
Kelsey vowed never to love a cowboy again. But then she meets Brent.
After a cowboy broke her heart, Kelsey Wilcox traded in her boots for flip-flops and a bistro on the beautiful sandy beach of Corpus Christi. Two years later, still not believing in happy endings, she is about to endure a weekend of torture at her cousin's beach wedding. Not only will she be forced to watch yet another wedding, but her great-aunt and her two best friends---aptly nicknamed 'the matchmaking posse of Mule Hollow'---are coming to the wedding, and Kelsey is sure to be on their radar.
Brent Corbin has had his share of bad luck with women and isn't looking for love or looking forward to the weekend of wedding festivities as a groomsman for his friend. When he sees a commotion on the beach and what appears to be a mermaid in distress, he doesn't hesitate to dive to the rescue. His attention is instantly captured by the woman he's saved and it turns out they're part of the same wedding party. But the instant Kelsey spots his soaking wet boots she wants no part of him.
Thrown together through the weekend and with the meddlesome encouragement from the matchmakers, Brent is determined to pursue Kelsey and change her mind about cowboys. Sparks fly at this August wedding as Kelsey and Brent dance a rocky Texas two-step toward a beach wedding of their own.
Once again, I was rewarded with a cute meet from this series. Kelsey's cousin is getting married on a beach in Texas and when Kelsey tries to do something heroic, she finds herself being rescued by a tall, dark, and handsome cowboy. The only problem is, she was jilted by a cowboy and never wants to date one again. I absolutely loved the way they met and the way the sparks flew--not completely in a good way.
I could understand Kelsey's feelings and they were made clear throughout the course of the story. She's a great character and fiercely loyal. Brent is determined to prove that all cowboys aren't bad and I love the creative ways he goes about proving it.
With the help of the adorable, yet crazy, matchmaking posse, this sweet, clean romance is sure to make a reader swoon. I loved the humor, the setting, and the fun characters. It kind of makes me want to own a ranch on a beach.
Content: mild romance (kissing); very mild religious elements. Clean!
