I really enjoyed this Western Romance. I received this book for free and I voluntarily chose to review it. I've given it a 5*rating. Both the heroine and the hero in this story are seriously independant and able to care for themselves. However, they soon found themselves able to lean a little bit on each other when needed. I didn't see this ending coming tho but was a nice surprise. What a nice bunch of characters there were in this also. Makes me want to look at cowboys a little more. ( )

"Cherish Me, Cowboy" by Alissa Callen is book one in the "Wildflower Ranch" series. This is working cowgirl, Payton Hollis and Cordell Morgan's story.

Payton is a no frills kind of girl. She is determined to save her home, Beargrass Hills ranch. Payton has no time for men.

Cordell shows up in Marietta and he appears to be a city boy but looks can be deceiving. He is also dealing with issues from his childhood.

Payton and Cordell due to circumstances and a crusty old man they end up spending lots of time together. They are extremely attracted to each other. The intimate scenes are closed door with great tender and passionate moments.

This is a sweet romance with lots of surprises. I really enjoyed Payton and Cordell's character. I loved Henry. ( )

Dedicated cowgirl Payton Hollis works hard trying to save her ranch and enduring a very long drought. All the pressures land squarely on her shoulders and she's determined to succeed. When the mysterious and oh so handsome City boy Cordell Morgan shows up unexpectedly Payton's world is turned up side down.

A beautiful love story. This book is very well done and leaves you with a smile that stays with you for a very long time. ( )

Cherish Me, Cowboy has the distinction of being part of not one, but two series of cowboy/cowgirl themed books by Tule Publishing. It’s the second book in the Montana Born Rodeo series and the first book in the Wildflower Ranch series (all of which are written by Alissa Callen). Tule books are always a fun read, and Cherish Me, Cowboy is no exception.

Payton is a cowgirl down to her bones – after the death of her parents, she’s had to be. Times are tough, with drought playing havoc on her ranch. She doesn’t need a man to slow her down but when on the way home from a wedding she needs to do farm work, she ties up her dress and gets down to work. Cordell, a man looking for some land for cattle to graze on, just happens to drive by and offers to lend a hand. Payton helps him to sweet talk neighbour Henry for the land (there may have been a cookie bribe involved), but there’s a catch- Cordell needs to live with Payton at Beargrass Hills Ranch while he gets himself organised. That sparks off an attraction between them and as they fall in love, secrets will be revealed. But will either of them let down their guard to reveal their feelings?

Cherish Me, Cowboy is a sassy read. Payton doesn’t take any guff from anybody, be it her friends or Cordell. She’s got a spine of steel but Callen demonstrates her vulnerability in subtle ways. Plus, she’s not afraid to act girly (even though Payton hates strappy sandals with a passion – give her boots any day). Cordell is a worthy hero – he’s kind and good in a crisis. Plus, he’s not afraid to take Payton’s would-be suitor, Rhett, to task when he goes off the rails. (I thought Rhett was rather cute despite being easily led to run with a bad crowd. Obviously all he needs is a good woman and a story of redemption, which is in Her Mistletoe Cowboy, book two in the Wildflower Ranch series). But of course he’s got secrets – quite a few to go through in this book. Some of the later reveals seemed pretty jam-packed into the pages, but it didn’t feel incomplete. Henry, a grumpy old rancher hiding a talent for matchmaking was also a standout in this book. I loved reading his interactions with Cordell and Payton – he’s gruff but you know he would do anything for either of them.

I think Tule books are going to be one of my go-to reads for holidays. The stories are light, but they never fail to entertain. The plots are multi-layered and you get a happy ending. What more could you wish for?

Thank you to Tule Publishing for the eARC. My review is honest and unbiased.
