Review and Giveaway: LOVE DRUNK COWBOY by Carolyn Brown

111221562From the back of the book:

She’s a self-made city girl…

High-powered career woman Austin Lanier suddenly finds herself saddles with an inherited watermelon farm deep in the countryside. She’s determined to sell the farm, until drop-dead sexy neighbor cowboy Rye O’Donnell shows up…

He’s as intoxicating as can be…

Rancher Rye O’Donnell thinks he’s going to get a good deal on his dream property – until he meets the fiery new owner. Rye is knocked sideways when he realizes that not only is Granny Lanier’s city-slicker granddaughter a savvy businesswoman, she’s also sexy as hell…

Suddenly Rye is a whole lot less interested in real estate and a whole lot more focused on getting Austin to set aside her stiletto heels…

I really enjoyed this book. I especially loved how Rye fell for Austin almost instantly. It was funny to read this inner thoughts. The chemistry between Rye and Austin is off the wall – these two practically burn the page. Another part of the book I liked was Austin’s struggle between city-girl and watermelon farmer. I felt that her struggle was written pretty realistically and I was happy that she didn’t make a rash decision, but really let both lives have a fair chance. Of course, with a hot cowboy like Rye waiting for her as a watermelon farmer it wouldn’t have been a really hard choice. My only complaint, and it is a silly one, was that sometimes I had trouble remembering just by their names with one was the girl and which one the boy. Austin and Rye are both masculine names in my head and it took some getting used to. (This complaint has no bearing on if the book was good or not – it just bothered me!) There is a whole cast of funny characters that help keep the story interesting and fun.
