Cowboy Up (Coming Home #3) by Harper Sloan
Release Date: 19/12/17
New York Times bestselling author Harper Sloan returns with the third in her sultry, Western-set Coming Home series, in which the eldest Davis sibling Clay may have finally met his match—but will he be able to give up the solitary, quiet life he’s built in the name of love?
As the eldest of the Davis clan, Clayton has always tried to lead by example. Along with taking his job as head of the family business seriously, he is also determined to keep his brother and sister in line. Clay is known for being serious, silent, and stoic—completely in control of his life. And with the way he grew up, coupled with a disastrous end to the last relationship he was in, he’s just fine with his quiet, solitary life.
What he hadn’t counted on was Caroline Michaels. She’s the proverbial woman next door—the town next door, that is. Caroline hasn’t lived an easy life, but after escaping from an abusive relationship, she’s finally living for herself and no one else. The last thing the quirky, shy bookstore owner expected was a steamy one-night stand with Clay Davis.
When Caroline and Clay meet, the connection is instant, both falling into one heated night of passion before parting ways—both driven by their own reasons to deny what they clearly wish didn’t have to end. It isn’t until Caroline falls on hard times and Clay comes back into the picture that they realize just how impossible it will be to stay away from each other.
Will Clay be able to give up his rootless existence in favor of finally settling down? And, more important, will Caroline want him to?
4 Cowboy Up stars on Goodreads
The oldest Davis sibling, Clay, is perfectly content to stay on the ranch and take care of his horses. After being burned once he doesn’t want to deal with the hassle of a girlfriend and he doesn’t trust the female population all that much. Famous last works. Caroline falls into Clay’s life and all of a sudden he’s not so sure of his perfect lonely life.
I really liked that we got to see his internal struggle of wanting Caroline but having a hard time trusting a relationship again. Soon though we were watching him be the one that needed to convince Caroline to give them a chance and I really liked that switch in his characters.
This was such a lovely story and I really enjoyed the read. I wasn’t expecting to like Clay much as I didn’t really click with him in the other books in this series. But I ended up loving him surprise, surprise haha This series is such a lovely read perfect for the Christmas holidays.
