Former golden girl McKenna Benjamin is now a single mom with a toddler struggling to eke out a living on her small Montana ranch, which was recently damaged by wildfire. She may be down, but no way is she out. And she’s definitely not going to turn to her wealthy I-told-you-so family for aid. McKenna considers herself a lucky survivor and is committed to making it on her own even if her neighbor’s sexy horse trainer is the one offering to help.
Horse trainer Brodie Collins needs a part-time assistant, but when his boss suggests hiring McKenna, Brodie is skeptical. The McKenna he once knew would never stoop to hard work, but Brodie soon realizes that ten years has utterly altered McKenna. Gone is the entitled beauty – replaced by a confident, determined woman, and Brodie finds himself falling hard.
Can this cowboy break down the protective barriers and win McKenna’s trust and her heart?

Genre: Modern Western Romance

Publisher: Tule Publishing
My Rating: 4.5 stars
Sometimes we have to live with the actions of our youth, even when the person has changed the memory of “how they once were” lingers on far too long – especially in a small town with a very active gossip. Once Brodie would have been considered a geek, a kid who enjoyed things beyond his family’s ranch. Also, once upon a time, McKenna would have never, ever lowered herself to hard, physical work. The princess, the rich family’s daughter, she knew what she wanted and it wasn’t this small town. Life happens. People change. And that is a lot of what HER COWBOY BOSS brings to readers. Yes, sometimes people can change for the better, they can do far more than anyone ever thought – and sometimes, that’s hard to convince people who knew them “back then”.
I completely enjoyed McKenna and Brodie’s romance. Sure, they had a rocky start, some stumbling blocks along the way but they proved to each other that it wasn’t what was that matters – it’s what we are now and how we react to this person now that truly matters. We’ll run into some familiar faces once again but HER COWBOY BOSS was an enjoyable journey with two people who work together well in the present and their future.
