The Trouble with Cowboys by Denise Hunter

The Trouble with Cowboys (A Big Sky Romance, #3)
The Trouble with Cowboys by Denise Hunter

About the Book: 

Only one pair of boots—and the cowboy wearing them—can get Annie out of the mess she’s in.

Annie Wilkerson is Moose Creek’s premiere horse trainer and equine columnist for Montana Living. Money is tight as she tries to put her kid-sister through college and provide for her young nephew. When Annie’s column is cancelled, she’s given first shot at a new lovelorn column—and she can’t afford to turn it down. Only problem is . . . Annie’s never been in love.

Always resourceful, she reluctantly strikes a deal with the town’s smooth-talking ladies’ man Dylan Taylor: She’ll work with his ailing horse, Braveheart, if he’ll help her answer the reader letters.

Working closely with Dylan is harder than Annie imagined, and she quickly realizes she may have misjudged him. But her unwavering conviction that cowboys are nothing but trouble has kept her heart safe for years. And she can’t risk getting hurt now.
The more Annie tries to control things, the more they fall apart. Her feelings are spinning out of control, and her sister’s antics are making life increasingly more difficult. Annie knows she needs to turn the reins over to God, but surrender has never come easily.

When Dylan reveals his feelings for her, Annie doesn’t know what to trust—her head or her heart. The trouble with this cowboy is that he might just be exactly what she needs.

Meet Denise: 

Denise lives in Indiana with her husband Kevin and their three sons. In 1996, Denise began her first book, a Christian romance novel, writing while her children napped. Two years later it was published, and she’s been writing ever since. Her books often contain a strong romantic element, and her husband Kevin says he provides all her romantic material, but Denise insists a good imagination helps too!

My Take:  This another great installment in this series but don't be afraid to read it if you haven't read the other books, this book stand well on it's own.  
All Annie has ever seen from cowboys is how they leave over and over.  So she has a wall built up already when she is forced to work with Dylan, who has issues of his own.  This is a romance but takes a refreshing approach of a romance based not on lust but on friendship.  This is a Christian romance so God has a presence in the relationship but it's not a hitting over your head with the Bible presence but more subtle.  I found the whole approach taken in the book as a nice change of pace from your run of the mill romance.  
I recommend this book if you like Christian romance books but are looking for a slight different take. 

I received a review copy of this book from Litfuse group in exchange for my honest review.
