This was a quick read with a sweet story, although I personally would have liked to see a lot more of Kennedy & Kye much earlier on.
All in all a nice sweet read.

Cowboy Redemption features Kennedy, Ava's sister from an earlier book in the series. Kennedy was the sister we loved to hate. She was jealous of Ava and she didn't hesitate to bully her.
In This book, however, we see a totally different side to Kennedy. She's grown up, and I must say, I really like her. She meets Kye at a retreat for people that are sent there instead of juvenile detention or in the adults' case, jail. Kye is an ex football player that couldn't handle his alcohol. Alcohol made him angry and aggressive.
Kye's connection with Kennedy is instant, only neither of them have the nerve to act on their feelings. After a while, they realise they can't fight their feelings any longer and decide to take things further. Kye and Kennedy are like a normal couple, they are great for each other, but they can argue like the best of them. That's what makes them so real, that it's not all hearts and roses, and it definitely isn't smooth sailing for this pair. I loved this couple just as much as any other of Kasey's cowboy couples. Never a dull moment in Pine Creek, that's for sure!
This is Kasey's sixth book in the Down Under Cowboy series, and I have loved each and every one of them. She has the knowledge and the ability to draw us in to these books and have us falling in love with these Aussie cowboys in no time. They are easy books to read, and not too long in length, so her books are usually read in one night by me. I get hooked and can't sleep until I've finished.
If you haven't read the previous books, I highly recommend that you do. This book can definitely be read as a stand alone, but you will recognise the characters that have featured in previous books better, if you read the others.
I believe Kasey has one more book to write in this series, and I will be sad that it has come to an end. These cowboy books are fun to read and very addictive. I have no hesitation in recommending them to all my reader friends.
By: Kasey Millstead
Kennedy Crawly (Ava’s sister, h from book 2) was always bitchy & mean-spirited towards her sister when they were growing up and even for a while thereafter. It was easy to hate Kennedy as she did & said some deplorable things. But we did notice in the last book or 2 that she was back home in Pine Creek and getting along with Ava & Ava’s group of friends. In this book, we see that she has been on a road of redemption and working through how she behaved in the past. She also recognizes her triggers for making bad decisions & bad behavior. She currently works at second chance retreat work camp for wayward teens & adults.
Kye is a former professional footballer who ended up at the second chance retreat work camp. He likes Kennedy & she likes him, and they do begin dating, but are taking things slow at Kennedy’s request, in order not to trip her triggers. Kye is a patient & honest man, who is an all-around good guy. He wants to stay in the Pine Creek area instead of returning to his previous life and thus takes odd jobs, so that he can stay near Kennedy.
It was good to see Kennedy’s transition from the person she always had been to the woman she is today. There was redemption for her and Kye both. I wish there had been more from Kye’s POV, so that we could get a better feel for him and the depth of his character.
Though this entire series is set in Australia, I think this book has more Aussie-slang than the other books. Personally, I love it and try to imagine someone talking with the Aussie accent. I love that Kasey Millstead has given this to readers who may never be lucky enough to travel to Australia themselves.
There is one more book left in this series, Cowboy Endings, but I don’t know when that book is due to be released.
The act of Kennedy’s redemption, in my opinion, is two fold - she first needs to seek forgiveness from those who she destroyed by being malicious and then she needs to become the person she wants to be; someone who is not insecure, jealous, or resentful. The first step seems easy enough because Kennedy is surrounded by a family who easily forgives, but where the work comes in is when she has to fight to stay on the right path and push herself to be better.
Kye Austin knows a thing or two about seeking redemption as well. He unequivocally destroyed his future by feeling larger than life, but he’s brought down to earth by his mistakes and must do what he needs to do to reclaim the man he used to be and should have been before his success went to his head.
A relationship between two people who are both working towards being better people and making up for their past misdeeds seems to be a huge risk, but, on the other hand, it might just be what they need to guarantee their redemption.
I’m a bit torn on how I feel about Kennedy and Kye’s story. There definitely is growth on Kennedy's part throughout the text, but I felt like the changes were told rather than shown, and I wanted to experience her self revelations and her healing of relationships a bit more to truly understand how much she has changed. I understand that a few years have passed since she decided to change her life for the better, but I just couldn’t grasp the 180 degree change because I wasn’t provided the foresight to do so.
The chemistry between Kennedy and Kye is definitely there, and Kasey Millstaed does a great job of taking things slow in order for Kennedy to not repeat the same bad behaviors. Kye is extremely patient with Kennedy, which proves the type of man he is and what he wants to have with her.
Once again, the characters from the previous books in the series are present in Cowboy Redemption, and it’s great to catch up with them and see how much their lives have changed, and I can’t wait for all of their epilogues in Book 7.

3.5 poison apples
Watch as these two work together and separately to overcome their past demons. It is not an easy ride, they have to work at it. Watch as they fight to be worthy of the other. Read the heartache that tears them apart, the friendship that binds them together gets stretched almost to the breaking point. Nothing worth having is ever easy and Cowboy Redemption proves that point.
Kasey Millstead lulls you into falling in love with her characters. Her writing makes you feel the emotions and makes it almost impossible to put down that book at the end. I want to dive back in to the world Kasey has created for all of us. I was sad when I hit the last page, heartbroken that I was no longer in Kennedy and Kye’s world.
