Steal Me, Cowboy
December 29, 2013
Rainey Brown is on the cross country trip of a lifetime-her lifetime. Chasing after her boyfriend of four years, she is tired of being put off when it comes to the big question every committed girl dreams of hearing-heck-what any girl worth her salt dreams of hearing.
But on her way to Montana, Rainey breaks down-literally and figuratively-in a small town and meets Beck Hartnett, cowboy slash restaurateur. Instant chemistry sparks, but surprisingly nothing happens-probably because the entire story is only 102 pgs.-except some sizzling attraction. After about a week of working in the local beauty shop to earn money to pay for her broken down car, Rainey reluctantly leaves to “surprise” her boyfriend in the next town.
I can’t really tell you what happens-but I’m sure you can guess-because I just hate spoilers. But what I can say is that I absolutely loved reading Steal Me, Cowboy. I originally picked it up because…well for one I won a copy of it…and two, I just loved how there was a baseball player in there as well as a cowboy since it closely resembled my early attempts at love (at one time I was in love with a baseball player but dropped him when I discovered cowboys). True story.
As with all really good short stories, the closer and closer I got to the end, I was wishing that there were some missing pages that would magically appear and make the story draw out. But of course, there wasn’t.
Regardless, I love these chick lit type stories and I miss reading them.
