Product Description

Product Description

When Sarah Collins loses her only sister in a car accident, she's surprised to learn that guardianship of her two nephews and infant niece has fallen equally to her and her brother-in-law. Sarah's not ready to be a parent, but can she trust playboy Raif Manning to do the job?

Raif, an illustrious photographer, is ready, willing, and eager to give up his wild bachelor lifestyle. He's just purchased an old, rundown farmhouse in Kansas and his number one priority is to restore it as the perfect place to raise his new family. Raif knows that he has to have a proper home for the kids if he's going to convince Sarah to give him sole custody.

But when Sarah shows up on Raif's doorstep he's completely unprepared. The house is in shambles, the kids are running amuck, and what's worse? As soon as Raif gets an eyeful of the sexy Sarah with her sassy attitude and completely transparent suit of armor, he falls hard and fast.

Little does Raif realize that while he's trying to find a way to lure Sarah into bed, she's finding her way into Raif's heart and helping him realize his dreams.

**Warning: Contains explicit language and erotic sex scenes**

Firstly, this is not an erotic romance, so the warning of explicit sex scenes is redundant; there is just one scene of semi-sensual lovemaking. Also, it's not a romantic comedy - full stop. The only slightest funny thing in this was a 10-minute water fight.

It was a tale that I thought I would love, but despite the blurb, Sarah hardly spends any time with the kids whose welfare is supposed to be her paramount concern as 1) she's only at the ranch for a week and 2) they don't like her, so stay out of her way and 3) Raif ends up leaving them at his sister's house for most of the time and 4) they only manage one brief encounter in the whole tale, and maybe one or two kisses. Which kind of makes a total mockery of the title. In fact, I got the impression the author loved the title, and tried to make a tale work around it - which it didn't.

Additionally, there's absolutely no evidence that he's a cowboy - he's a photographer by trade, which he's given up to look after his nephews and niece. He's not even a playboy, as his exploits were from over a year ago, during which time he's been pretty much on his lonesome.

This could have been really good, as sparks did fly between the leads, but it needed a faster pace, over a longer period of time, the kids needed to spend time with Sarah, and the sex needed to be hotter and more frequent. From what the author told us of Sarah, I had a 'yeah, right, really. Hmmm...' moment when reading the epilogue, which came a year later.

Not great, only OK for a one-off read if you've not much else available, which is a real pity, as this author can be really good.

3.0 out of 5 stars Misleading 2 May 2012
By Anne TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The title of this book is misleading - the character Raif is not a cowboy, he is a photographer (no cowboys in the book). Also, it seems to imply that there will be lots of sexual activity, an impression backed up by the warning in the synopsis. This is not the case either. The book and the title seem to be divorced from each other (I preferred the real book to the one conjoured up by the title though).

This is the story of Sarah, a rich young woman, who has joint guardianship of her dead sister's children (although she hasn't seen them much, something which is imperfectly explained) with Raif. She visits him to check that he will be a suitable father for the children before she signs them over to him. There are the usual misunderstandings until Sarah changes her first less than favourable impression and she and Raif find that they have a lot in common after all.

This is a bit superficial. I didn't quite understand how the children eventually came to like Sarah when they never seemed to spend any time with her. I was not sure why Sarah would want to stay in the house when she had had such a pampered life. It was difficult to know why Raif felt such an obligation to the children.

The book didn't live up to the expectations in the title and the synopsis - although this was a good thing. The characters were weak and the plot was full of implausibilities - not a good thing. This is a pleasant enough quick, romantic read but nothing special and no particularly memorable.

This book was enjoyable.... I love Western romantic story lines, with big burly guys showing off their ripped bodies... ooooh.... this story was full of humour..... like most Western story lines I have read in the past.... but didn't find the 'Comedy' as in the headlines... perhaps I was waiting for something really stupid to happen, I don't know..... Its a very good read for a romantic Western though.

3.0 out of 5 stars It is just okay maybe less 2 Mar 2012
By AvidReader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book is fast. It is a few days from 'hey I'm here to see the kids' to 'HEY...so now we are in love lets do it in the barn'. I don't normally mind that but this time I wanted more out of the story. If you're gonna give me a sex book by all means lets get to it but if you're gonna make me think about the welfare of three young children then give me more of the family dynamic. I didn't hate the book but it could have been so much more than what it is. I was left really feeling nothing for the characters and not really caring about the kids. The baby was only in the story once and there was no real bonding between them. It was not far fetched enough to be a fantasy or made up story but it wasn't real enough to make me care. If that makes any sense. I wanted to know more about the father/daughters relationship. It not enough to tell me about his playboy ways and how hes changed I want to really see it. I wanted to see the father/daughter reconciliation and the kids adjustment to having her there. It is okay but it really could have been great.

5.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 bue ribbon - Romance Junkies review 31 Dec 2007
By C. Dionne - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Sarah Collins has plans for her life and those plans don't include becoming a guardian to her infant niece and nephews following her only sister and her husband's deaths in a car accident. She loves the kids, just isn't prepared to be a parent but isn't about to simply hand them over to her brother-in-law Raif either - not without paying him a visit and seeing for herself that he is ready, willing and able to handle the job and leave his playboy lifestyle behind.

Renowned photographer Raif Manning is more than willing to settle down and assume guardianship of his niece and nephews. He's bought a house near his sister in Kansas, where he intends to raise the children and he's hard at work restoring the old house into a home.

Sarah fully anticipated arriving at Raif's home, seeing that the kids are in good hands and signing over full guardianship to him, only when she arrives it's obvious that the house has been sadly neglected and it's filthy. There's no way she can in good conscious leave the children in such conditions. She's put off this visit and dealing with the legalities involved with guardianship of the kids for three months and now the kids have bonded with Raif and view her as the `wicked witch.' It shouldn't matter, she's only there to make sure that they're being cared for properly.

She has no desire to uproot them from the stability they've found with Raif but she isn't willing to allow them to be raised in such substandard conditions either. Sarah doesn't learn that Raif had just bought the house until after she goes on her uppity tirade. Sarah's determined to stick around and watch as he starts to get the house cleaned up and see how he is with the kids but Raif has some stipulations of his own - if she's going to play social worker then she can stay in the house with them - that way she won't miss a single thing. Neither of them anticipates the emotional attachment they begin to develop for each other. While Raif knows his desire and affection for her are far beyond just an infatuation, Sarah has a fiancé and life in California that she longs for but she'll soon discover that her neat and orderly life isn't all it's cracked up to be and sometimes you have to go with your gut instinct and allow yourself to fall in love - even if you know the man you fall for isn't going to meet with your father's approval.

Kelly Wallace tells quite a charming tale with COWBOYS MAKE BETTER LOVERS. At first Sarah struck me as an uppity snob who believes that she knows what's best for everybody but as I read through the story I began to see the cracks in her persona and found her to be genuinely likeable. Raif is downright brutally honest and that's something which Sarah isn't used to with her father or her fiancé. There's a chemistry present between Sarah and Raif right from their very first meeting that sizzles the pages. Add the emotional factor of deciding the fates of the three children and you have a story that will keep you turning pages anticipating the upheaval that Sarah and Raif experience while trying to maintain a stable front for the kids. This is a wonderful feel good story and while it does have children involved, it's Sarah who really does a lot of `growing up.' Beautifully written Ms. Wallace.

Story line was fine, but the story moved along too slowly. I had hoped for more depth in the story and with the characters.

I liked how Raif showed Sarah no matter what she thought of his home, he could be just as good of a parent to the kids as she can. Some of the dialogue in the story is funny too. This was an okay book to read just once.
