Blog Tour 'Bad News Cowboy' by Maisey Yates

Today I’m really excited to participate in the Blog Tour of ‘Bad News Cowboy’ by Maisey Yates. ‘Bad News Cowboy’ is an adult romance and the third book in the Copper Ridge Series, but can be read as a standalone. Check out the tour page for more tour stops.


About the Book:
Can the bad boy of Copper Ridge, Oregon, make good—and win the rodeo girl of his dreams?

Kate Garrett keeps life simple—working hard, riding her beloved horses, playing cards with her brothers. Lately, though, she feels a bit restless, especially when family friend Jack Monaghan is around. Sexy and shameless, Jack is the kind of trouble you don’t tangle with unless you want your heart broken. Still, Kate could always use his help in learning how to lasso someone a little less high-risk…

Jack can’t pinpoint the moment the Garrett brothers’ little sister suddenly stopped seeming so…little. Now here he is, giving flirting tips to the one woman who needs zero help turning him on. Love’s a game he’s never wanted to play. But he’ll have to hurry up and learn how before the best thing that ever entered his life rides right back out again…

This book is available at Amazon, IndieBound and Barnes & Noble.

My Review:


In June I read the second book in the Copper Ridge series called ‘Brokedown Cowboy’. I completely fell in love with that book and the way the author wrote the story. So when I saw the sign- up for the blog tour of ‘Bad News Cowboy’, the third book in the Copper Ridge series, I signed up as fast as I could. I was so excited when I saw that I got a spot in the tour and I started reading as fast as I could.

Just as with ‘Brokedown Cowboy’, I was hooked to ‘Bad News Cowboy’ from the very beginning. I just love books about cowboys, country life and falling in love, and this book was all that. This book is about the Garett brothers’ little sister Kate. Kate is in her twenties and has always been protected and cared for by her two big brothers and their best friend Jack. Now Kate is trying to figure out what she wants with her life, but change is really hard for her.

Kate is definitely not your average twenty three year old woman. She never wears make-up, she doesn’t even remember when she wore a dress for the last time, she works hard and spends her days with her horse and playing poker with her brothers and their wives. Kate really didn’t think much about love and guys. But somehow that is changing.
I really loved Kate’s character. I loved how ‘original’ she was and how she learned about her feelings. I especially enjoyed how she interacted with Jack. It really made me laugh at times.

Jack seems to be this fun-only, and a new-woman-everyday kind of guy. But that’s not all he is. Jack has had a hard life, being disappointed by the people who should love him the most. Now he is angry all the time and just tries to forget. But Jack was has always helped taking care of his best- friends little sister Kate, and this is something he still really wants to do. But somehow he can’t look at her the way he always did.

The romance between Kate and Jack is just really addicting to read about. There are so many reasons why Kate and Jack are not suited for each other, but still I was really rooting for them. I remember reading about Kate and Jack in ‘Brokedown Cowboy’, and hoping there would be more coming for them. And boy did Maisey Yates her me. Because this book is just really sexy and above all toe curling romantic.

What I love most about the Copper Ridge series, is the way these books are about the same town and the same family. But most of all I like they can totally be read as a standalone. I never read the first book in this series, but I really don’t feel like I haven’t got all the information. I really want to read the first book sometimes, but it’s not necessary to understand the following books.

This book was just great and I can’t wait to read more books by Maisey Yates. I really recommend this book and the series. 

My Rating:
