Promise Me, Cowboy - Review

Review by Marlene Engel

Five years ago, Sage Carrigan found herself staring down the barrel of a gun when she made the mistake of sleeping with Dawson O’Dell.  They met on the rodeo circuit and he had failed to tell her that he was married.  Until one day, when he asked her to come back to his bed, his wife found them in a compromising position.  Shortly after that encounter, Sage got hurt during a rodeo and decided to not only say goodbye to the rodeo scene, but to cowboys altogether. 

Sage, now twenty nine years old and living in Marietta, Montana, owns and runs a chocolate shop.  It’s a far stretch from her rodeo days and not what her father wanted for her, but she needed to get away from the rodeo circuit.  The day she walked away from the rodeo, she also took with her some secrets.  One of those secrets being Dawson O’Dell.  She had thought that Dawson was tucked nicely into her past until he comes strolling into her chocolate shop.  It’s hard enough keeping secrets in a small town, but with Dawson in the area will the secrets that Sage has tried so hard to hide make their way to the surface?  And now Dawson is talking about quitting the rodeo scene and making Marietta home for him and his daughter. 

Dawson is more determined than ever to prove himself to Sage.  He has waited five years to apologize to her and would do anything to have her love him again.  But can she forgive him for what he’s done to her in the past and believe the promises he’s making to her now?  

Promise Me, Cowboy is the third book in the Copper Mountain Rodeo Series.  It’s an easy read full of love and emotion.  I really enjoyed this book.  The story was so well written and the characters were relatable.  The author had a way of making me feel like I was right there in Marietta with them.  I highly recommend this book (and all of the books in the series).   They are all fun, easy reads that you will not want to put down until you reach the very end!
