Review 'Part Time Cowboy' by Maisey Yates (Audio)
A one-time bad girl comes home to small-town Oregon in the first in a sexy, heartfelt new series from USA TODAY bestselling author Maisey Yates…

Sadie Miller isn't expecting any welcome-home parades on her return to Copper Ridge. Least of all from part-time rancher, full-time lawman Eli Garrett. The straight-laced, impossibly hot deputy sheriff glares at her like she's the same teenage hoodlum who fled town ten years ago. But running from her demons has brought Sadie full circle, ready to make a commitment at last. Not to a man, but to a B and B. On Garrett land. Okay, so her plan has a tiny flaw…

Eli works too hard to let a blonde ball of trouble mess up his town. But keeping an eye on Sadie makes it tough to keep his hands off her. And if she's so wrong for him, why does being with her feel so right?

My Review:

For ages I’ve been wanting to listen to more audiobooks. Somehow I still didn’t do it. But since I signed up for a view audiobook tours, I decided I definitely needed to start listening to more audiobooks ASAP. So when I saw the first book in the Copper Ridge series available on, I decided to start with that one. I read the second and third book in the Copper Ridge series a while back and loved it, so this sounded like a great ‘first’ audiobook for me.

‘Part Time Cowboy’ is the story of Sadie Miller and Eli Garrett. Sadie moves back to Copper Ridge after being gone for the last ten years. After moving from town to town for years, Sadie now signed a five year lease for running a Bed & Breakfast on the Garrett land. From the moment Sadie and Eli meet each other again they are surprised by the attraction they feel for one another. Especially since they really don’t seem to like each other.

‘Part Time Cowboy’ definitely was a fun story to listen to. I love stories about small town life, and Copper Ridge definitely is a fun small town. The main characters Sadie and Eli are fun. Sadie has been running for her past for years, and it was fun to hear how she slowly got used to being back in her childhood town. Eli was a little more difficult to like. I did like him almost immediately, but he was definitely pretending to be much harder and tougher than he really was.

After a lot of arguing between Sadie and Eli at the beginning of this book, which got a little too much if you ask me, the romance started getting better and better the further we got in the book. The chemistry between Sadie and Eli was really fun. I could definitely feel that chemistry and I loved listening to their story.
In the end I would have liked this book just as much with a little less sex scenes. There were just to many of those at the end, and I began losing interest in them. 

I really enjoyed listening to ‘Part Time Cowboy’. Lillian Thayer had a nice and calm voice and I particularly liked how different she could make Sadie and Eli’s voice sound. It never got boring listening to her voice. Yes, ‘Part Time Cowboy’ really made for an easy to follow, fun audiobook. Doing housework was never so fun!
