One of the most notorious cowboys in Cold River, Jensen Kittredge always has willing women with sweet smiles vying for a place in his bed. So when the prissy high school librarian sidles up to him in the most disreputable bar in town with a scowl on her face, he has no idea what to make of it. Much less the attraction he feels toward the bespectacled creature who wants something from him… but not that. Yet.
Someone gets burned…
Harriett Barnett doesn’t care for dens of iniquity— or the insolent cowboy she certainly shouldn’t find attractive. But one of her students needs her help, and if she needs to corral the infamous Jensen to save him, she will. Trouble is, the town’s favorite Kittredge brother is a lot more than she bargained for. Harriett’s happy little life is orderly and neat, just how she likes it—until Jensen blows it all apart with his particular brand of addictive passion. Can a modern-day schoolmarm really tame the wildest cowboy in town? Or is Harriet headed for a terrible fall?

Author: Caitlin Crews
Genre: Modern Western Romance
Published: August 24, 2021
Publisher: St. Martin’s Press
My Rating: 4.5 stars
All Night Long with a Cowboy is the second title in the Kittredge Ranch series and talk about opposites attract! I absolutely loved Harriet. She’s not exactly what she seems. She could easily stand in for the role of old-time schoolmarm in any Western movie, but behind that librarian look she’s perfected lies the soul of one very stubborn, very determined woman. And she will get what she needs from Jensen… or maybe even more than she went looking for, which was his help with a troubled teen.
Jensen plays the part of the good times cowboy with perfection. He rarely lets the world see beneath the surface he’s created. Within lies a heart that is as big as the hills but has been harmed along the way. This seemingly playboy cowboy and the supposedly dowdy librarian should not set sparks off of each other… but do they ever, in their banter, in the sizzling chemistry between them, and perhaps most importantly in the heart where love, a forever kind of love, could bloom if they’re willing to take the risk.
All Night Long with a Cowboy has to be my favorite of this series (and yes, I did unintentionally read them out of order). With a slow-burn romance, some healing of old wounds, a bit of transformation, and a whole lot of stubbornness this couple will win your reading heart easily. I had an amazing time in this world and would not hesitate to recommend Harriet and Jensen’s story, but the entire series to any reader who loves a solid romance, a good storyline, sizzling chemistry, and watching two unlikely people fall in love.
