Emmy Lou King’s whole family is legendary in country music. When she lands the opportunity to sing the American Football League anthem and serve on one of the AFL’s anti-drug charities, she’s sure she can handle working with Brock Watson even though she’s barely recovered from their breakup—and she’s never loved anyone else.
Brock Watson is feeling the pressure. From dealing with his father’s declining health, keeping their ranch running, staying in game-ready shape, and his dedication to the charity that changed his life, there’s no time for anything else. Emmy Lou included. After six years, he’d like to think she couldn’t mess with his head anymore. But one look, one smile—and he knows she’s as dangerous as ever. He can’t resist her—he never could.
The more time Emmy Lou spends with Brock, the harder it is for them to keep their distance.

My Rating: 4 stars
The Kings of Country series continues with the second title, Song for a Cowboy, and a second chance for two people still in love with each other to get another chance to get love right this time – but it’s not going to be easy, and they’re going to have to work hard to find their way to their happy ending this time around.
I adored Brock and Emmy Lou’s romance, and while you “could” read this one as a standalone, I’d still suggest starting with Jace to get the full dynamics of this country music family and the people who enter their lives. There are folks to love and cheer on, and one person, in particular, to loathe on sight – you’ll get the differences sorted out real fast.
There was a time when Emmy Lou and Brock seemed headed for a perfectly lovely future but that seemed not to be. Now, years later, they’re about to be together for a special event and will discover that some emotions, like love, never really go away especially when the love never died but was badly bruised along the way. Life apart has changed them somewhat, Brock’s certainly had his hands full during those years. Yet there is still that spark between them, and it’s up to them to follow their hearts or let the past or others get in the way of their happiness.
I easily fell back into this world full of believable people, situations that I could certainly see happening, and the love, devotion of the King family shines through as always. We’ll see familiar faces once again, get caught up with Jace and Krystal (Emmy Lou’s twin) a little bit, and watch as two people who really do belong together work their way back through potholes, speed bumps, and sharp turns on that road to happiness. I had fun here, and I don’t want to give much away. Although I will always dislike Cici, I just do not see a situation where I will tolerate that woman. There are certainly intriguing hints at what may be coming, and I’m definitely watching for those developments. In all, Song for a Cowboy settled in my heart and gave me a really good, emotional, satisfying second chance romance for two deserving people. Can’t ask for much more than that!
