About the book:

From “a fabulous storyteller” (Carolyn Brown, New York Times bestselling author) comes a western romance about a cowboy who isn’t afraid to break the rules.

All designer Ivy Serrano wants is a fresh start. But instead, her Meadow Valley homecoming includes an electrical fire, a trashed custom dress, and a very handsome fireman who knows how to push all her buttons. Lieutenant Carter Bowen may set off sparks of his own, but the last thing Ivy needs now is town gossip . . . or to risk loving another firefighter.
New to small-town living, Carter is determined to prove himself, both at the station and at the fledgling dude ranch where he volunteers. That means no mistakes, no distractions, and definitely no Ivy. Yet there’s something about the sassy shop owner that he just can’t resist. As things heat up between them, Carter’s more certain than ever that she’s the one. But can he convince her they have a future worth fighting for?

Cowboy to the Rescue by A.J. Pine is a prequel novella in the contemporary romance Meadow Valley series. As with most romance series each book will change main characters so the can be read as a standalone or in any order. The books of the series however do give updates on the previous characters for those that follow from the beginning.

Coming from a  firefighting family the very last thing Ivy Serrano ever would want would be to fall for a firefighter herself knowing all too well the danger they face everyday. However, when a small electrical fire breaks out in Ivy’s new shop in walks Lieutenant Carter Bowen and as determined as Ivy is to ignore the handsome Lieutenant sparks begin to fly between Ivy and Carter.

Coming in at just over a hundred pages Cowboy to the Rescue does have a very fast pace to the  relationship with some insta-love. However, for those that don’t mind a quick pace this is a lovely little novella that opens up and introduces the Meadow Valley series which seems like it will be a nice place to find love. This first set of characters were likable and from what we see I think the rest of the series also shows promise.

I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.

About the Author:

A teen librarian by day and a romance writer by night, A.J. Pine can’t seem to escape the world of fiction, and she wouldn’t have it any other way. When she finds that 25th hour in the day, she might indulge in a tiny bit of TV where she nourishes her undying love of vampires, superheroes, and a certain high-functioning sociopath detective. She hails from the far off galaxy of the Chicago suburbs.
