TLC Book Tours Book Review: Slow Burn Cowboy

Author: Maisey Yates
Title: Slow Burn Cowboy
Publisher: HQN
Publish Date: April 18, 2017

Book Blurb: If Finn Donnelly makes a plan, he sticks to it. After his brothers left Copper Ridge, Finn stayed behind, determined to keep their ranch going by himself. And when he realized his feelings for Lane Jensen were more than platonic, he shoved that inconvenient desire away. It was easy…until it wasn't. Suddenly his brothers are coming home to claim their share of the property. And Lane is no longer just in his fantasies. She's in his arms, and their friendship is on the line…

He's been her buddy, her handyman, her rock. But until that one breathtaking kiss, Lane somehow overlooked the most important thing about Finn Donnelly—he's all man. They're right together, no matter how much his volatile past has bruised him. Finn wants to hold Lane's body, but he doesn't want to hold her heart. But Lane is falling fast and now she's got a plan of her own…to show Finn there's nothing hotter than friendship turned to slow-burning love.

Review: Maisey Yates is one of my favorite Harlequin authors, so I was super excited to read her latest book. (Oh and I'm a sucker for cowboys too)

I love the friends to lovers trope and that's what we've got here. However the story is a bit slow going, which is a bit of a shame because the characters are so great. Finn is a typical alpha male cowboy. You can tell Maisey writes Harlequin Presents novels. (That series is where the alpha male originated)

This is a wonderful mixture of the guy who wants the girl, but not commitment and the girl who wants a relationship.

Finn and Lane are wonderful and if the pacing of this story were just a little bit better this would be a perfect read.

Rating: 4 flowers
