Rodeo cowboy Boone Telford feels like he’s running out of time to make his mark. By his age, his father was an All-Around-Cowboy multiple times and his siblings are all highly accomplished in their fields. Boone vows that this is his year to stand out and finally be a champion as long as he remains focused, but a beautiful masseuse he met on a quick detour to the beach has given him a glimpse of a happy life that doesn’t involve buckles or prize money. Is loving Piper and settling down on his family’s Montana ranch giving up his dreams and destiny? When he pulls into his home town of Marietta, he knows it’s now or never, and he probably needs to let Piper go. 

Masseuse Piper Wiley is doing the one thing she swore she never would–following a man who’s chasing his career from town to town. The daughter of an Army colonel, Piper’s lived all over the world, but has always craved permanence and belonging. Meeting Boone was unexpected and powerful. Love at first sight. But can she convince her cowboy to finally come home and make his mark with her?

My Rating:  4 stars

I’m frankly a bit conflicted on Cowboy Come Home, mainly with Boone.  I understood his frustration at coming from a family of a successful parent and siblings – you might even call the Telford’s a family of overachievers.  I got that he wanted to make his own mark in the career he’d chosen, yet the way he treated Piper once arriving in his hometown of Marietta was far less than stellar and not what I expect from a Marietta cowboy to be frank.  I had real trouble connecting with Boone, and even his actions at the ending of the story couldn’t save this cowboy in my eyes.  I felt Piper was the stronger, even more mature of this couple.  She went into her relationship with Boone with eyes wide open, yet she also hoped for far more from him eventually.  Still, she had a plan, a goal and even with the treatment she received from Boone at times she still held on to that dream of belonging somewhere, with someone.  I liked Piper, she got some raw deal moments from Boone… and I hope that Boone is worth it for her in the end.  Of the two, it’s Piper that I wanted to see happy… with or without Boone.

I enjoyed Cowboy Come Home, I don’t want to give a different impression – I was simply disappointed in one character but that didn’t take away from the overall enjoyment of the story.
