Enter Presley Walker: Holiday’s own Cowboy Casanova and the perfect tutor for a good girl looking to go bad. He’s got charm in spades, and he’s always seemed like a terrible idea waiting to happen.

About the Author

The book is about:
Cowboy Charming tells the story of Dixie King, a naive preacher’s daughter that loves helping people in her community. When her friend, Charlie, asks her to help manage a festival in their small town, she is partnered with Presley, the town’s famous playboy.
Dixie is appalled by the charms of the cowboy. Little did she know that he is looking to settle down – and she is someone that he might consider.
But, wait! This is not just a small town romance. Presley and Dixie will also partner up to unfold the mystery of who is bringing an invester to take over and modernize the town.
What drew me in:
I was attracted to this because of one thing: I am a sucker for romance. And sometimes, I feel the need for some cowboy loving.
Characters & connections:
Dylann Crush was able to give a set of likeable characters, especially with the two leads. Reading their banter put a smile on face.. I loved the bad boy/good girl dynamic that they had.
Everything I liked:
The best thing about Cowboy Crush is the overall mood of something light, fun, and sweet. There’s a lot of flirty banter, but there were heartwarming moments, too. Though there was quite a few push-and-pull moments, their love story is still a great one to watch unfold.
In its entirety, Cowboy Crush brought me to a great experience and it did not felt like I was lost even though it was the 3rd installment of the series. I loved the writing style of the author, so I’m eager to find out if her other works would appeal to my tastes, too.
