The Truth About Cowboys (Texas Heat #1) by Lisa Renee Jones

Jessica was a successful divorce attorney on the fast track to partner in her law firm. It all came to crashing halt when she discovered her boyfriend has been cheating on her. On leave from her job the only thing Jessica has going for her is a book deal to write a woman’s guide to divorce. Leasing a cabin from a woman she discovered on craigslist seems like the ideal situation to escape from it all. Jessica isn’t prepared for the torrential rain, muddy impassable roads or arrogant men who stop to help.

Jason has enough on his plate without a clumsy woman getting stranded on his road. He quit baseball to return to his family ranch after the death of his parents and found the ranch struggling to survive. When he discovers the woman, he rescued setting up home in his office, thanks to his meddling grandmother he’s stuck with Jessica for the time being. Jason has been hurt before, and he has no intention of letting this woman gather information on him to sell to the press. Both have been hurt before, and trust doesn’t come easy. It doesn’t help that sparks fly when they’re together.

This is a light-hearted romance. Martha is the grandmother we would all love to have, she bakes, is a shoulder to cry on and isn’t afraid to discuss sex. Jessica has enough reasons to be a stereotypical divorce lawyer, watching her parents repeat marriages, her own failed relationships, but she doesn’t allow this to close her off to love.

Issues I had were pretty minor, I felt Jason’s trust issues overwhelmed the story at times, and Jessica put up with his baseless accusations for too long. Overall this is a fun, lighthearted read that is easy to follow. An ideal book to while away an afternoon.

I received an arc of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
