3 starsHow to Wrangle a Cowboy was an OK read.While I enjoyed the storyline and the relationship between Lindsey and Shane, my enjoyment was affected by how wordy this read turned out to be. It felt like the inner dialogue went on far too long to be realistic and o.m.g did Shane jump to conclusions and in a negative way. I found myself frustrated and talking to my kindle telling Shane to go talk to Lindsey instead of jumping to assume the worse sighWhat I did love was the secondary characters, e [...]
Reviewed for herding cats & burning soup.Cowboys! I love cowboys. And I was kind of digging the set up on this one. After her long estranged grand dad passed away Lindsey's come back home for the funeral only to find out she's now the new owner of a sprawling family ranch. Even worse? She's gotta deal with the ranch foreman who just rubs her wrong. She's sure he's trying to con her grandmom. And his feelings aren't much more friendly towards her and her intentions.

Kennedy writes romance that’s real and characters that capture your heart. Her vibrant descriptions easily transport readers to this fantastic area where families stick together and working the land still means something. The plot of the novel is very character driven, creating an emotional yet extremely fun tale that I couldn’t put down. I loved feeling as if I were part of this story while I was lost in its pages. Cowboys are a breed apart. Kennedy definitely proves that with this novel. S [...]
Shelly's review posted at Guilty Pleasures Book ReviewsThis being book 3 in the Decker Ranch series, had me a little leery about reading it out of order, but I found I had no problem reading this as a stand alone even though it was part of a series. Lindsey has her life turned upside down when she finds out her Grandfather left her his ranch, with foreman included. The last time she saw him she left things in a bad way and feels guilty she never had a chance to get her forgiveness from him and l [...]
This book had really good promise and started out interesting enough for me. Then, about halfway through it started to get rushed and choppy. I liked the characters, especially Cody, and the storyline had some interesting plot points. But, there seemed to be something disconnected in the writer's style of writing.

To read this review and others like it check out my site at homelovebooks Ah cowboys, in the words of the Dixie Chicks, cowboy take me away. I love cowboys, maybe it is because I grew up in Texas and I met my husband on a farm with cows and horses, who knows, but I love em. So when this book popped up, I was ready to go. Unfortunately for me, this book just did not work for me at all. So the number one reason why this book didn't work for me was basically the writing style. The author often used [...]

If hearing of the passing of her beloved grandfather wasn't shocking enough for Lindsey Ward, hearing that he left his ranch to her was enough to knock her world off of it's axis. The last time they saw one another things were definitely left on bitter terms, and for that Lindsey has carried a lot of regret, and frequently thought she should make amends with her grandfather. But now that he is gone she won't get that opportunity, which is almost more than she can bare, especially since the perso [...]
Reviewed at Keeper BookshelfThere were moments when I enjoyed How To Wrangle A Cowboy. Moments. Yet the rest of the time spent in this world involved wanting to toss a Kindle against a soft surface (so I wouldn’t break it for the next book!), needing to have a serious talk with Lindsey about her convoluted ways of coming to the conclusion that Shane is a con man, and Shane’s inability to see the good in any freaking thing around him aside from his son. I just…(insert sigh) it could have be [...]

Marie's Tempting Reads Netgalley ARC Review:How To Wrangle A Cowboy by Joanne Kennedy was one of those books that had me smiling, scowling at the characters every now and then, and had me sighing in contentment. It was sweet, sexy, frisky, and downright fun! Shane and Lindsey were some seriously wonderful characters. Both had issues they needed to work out, and when they were in the same vicinity of one another sparks flew and tempers soared and soon, so did their passion! I really enjoyed this [...]
This book was difficult for me to stick with. It felt disjointed and forced and to be honest, I really didn't feel any attraction between Shane and Lindsey other than we are told that they are attracted to each other. They both were irrationally stubborn and refused to listen to each other or give each other the benefit of the doubt. There were many eye rolls on my part as I read this story.Both Shane and Lindsey jumped to love so fast that it didn't feel believable. Then, they both have trust i [...]
What a wonderful story of heart, perseverance, and romance. Although I have not read the other two in the series, I did not feel I had missed anything. Lindsey and Shane were both so scarred and scared of loving in this book. With the love of Lindsey's Grandmother, Shane's little boy, the people from the park, and of course the animals, you have a story that will melt your heart. I have to say, it was one of the most uplifting stories I have read in a very long time. I did love the bit of humor [...]

Review Posted at HarlequinJunkieLindsey Ward is stunned by the fact that her late grandfather has left his ranch to her. She wasn’t expecting him to include her in his will, not after she made the worst decision of her life — choosing her fiancé over her family. However, the moment she takes control of the ranch, it seems she might not be able to keep it when someone blackmails her. By making her believe they have more of a claim on the property. Read More
I can never get enough of cowboy meets heroine books and this one has just what I love to read about them. The Sparks that fly between Lindsey and Shane, are heart stopping, sigh worthy and at times funny. I enjoy a tried and true story with a twist and this one delivers. It is the first book I've read by this author, but definitely plan on searching out more by her. This book was provided through Netgalley for my honest review.
I loved the chemistry between Lindsey and Shane, "she purred. “I was thinking you’re more of a man than I’m used to.” He flashed a predatory grin that told her she’d been right." Our girl sure is feisty, “it’s not a hobby, Shane. It’s a mission. And I’m doing it. I’m not letting any man stomp on my dreams, not ever again.” She kicked at a stone with the toe of her boot. “A hobby. Thanks for taking me seriously.” I enjoyed this book I loved Shane.
DNF @ 50%I really tried with this book, but I had to put it down at halfway and can't bring myself to pick it up again. I really didn't like the way the heroine had no respect for the hero's work and loyalty to the farm, and I'm not particularly fond of the hero either. It just didn't grab me and reading it turned into a chore. Sorry, but this one just didn't work for me.

I liked the story but I gave it 4 stars because there was a lot of unnecessary silliness in this book. I just rolled my eyes and read on. Like I said I liked the story but I felt she could have left those lines or paragraphs completely out.
What an awesome book I thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish this books is sweet, sexy, downright frisky, and o so much fun!
Loved it!! I Love all of her books! Every one I have read I've read in 1 sitting cuz once I start I can't put it down! She is one of my favorite authors!!
