Rule #1: No Dating Cowboys. 
A fake fiancé doesn’t count, right? Oh boy . . .

Amy Weaver is tired of her dad meddling in her love life. Fed up, she hires an actor to play the part of her fake cowboy fiancé when she goes home for her grandpa’s ninetieth birthday. Sure, Luke Jenkins has got looks, charm, and muscular legs, but this is business, pure and simple. Things are fine and dandy until she finds out he’s a real cowboy, not an actor. Now, she’s stuck between a rock and his chiseled jawline, falling faster than a sack of horseshoes. How the heck is Amy supposed to ignore the sparks between them and stick to her rule of not dating cowboys? All bets are off.

I am now kicking myself for not purchasing and reading books from this author years ago when I first spotted them while scrolling through Amazon, for it turns out I now have another author that I really really like, based on There's Something About a Cowboy. 

I've read quite a few of these hire a fake date books in the past perhaps 6 months or so, and thus sort of knew the basics of who Amy would end up with - but what I couldn't have predicted was how enjoyable the journey was. 

It is clear from their first meeting that there is considerable chemistry between Amy and Luke, and as the story progresses you forget that money may be exchanging hands at some point as everything felt quite real. 

Except Luke is sworn of dating, and is definitely not Amy's fiance, and Amy is currently trying to avoid dating cowboys but she's not convinced Luke is a real cowboy, and she's not really dating him either! 

The book really gets going once they get to Julian, and the big family gathering, and we get to meet Amy's family members.  One thing is for certain Luke looks, sounds and feels  all cowboy. And boy do I love a cowboy in fiction! 

I was utterly hooked on Luke, and just wanted to get to know him for fully.  Amy's grandparens are lovely but her father is a rather interesting character who is determined to get Amy back with her ex Nathan.  

They are a family that loves food, and Amy is an excellent pie maker together with Luke being a barbecue expert,  well lets just say its a book that made me quite hungry. 

There is plenty of comedy, all starting with a bucking bronco, and Rich Amooi had a way of drawing me into the story and had me turning the pages and devouring his words incredibly quickly.   It was a sheer pleasure to read this book. 

There really is just something about a cowboy, and this book is a great example of just why I love them so much..  What I definitely know is this won't be the last book from Rich Amooi that I will read. 

Thank you to the author for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
