Review: Cowboys & Kisses by Sasha Summers

Title: Cowboys & Kisses
By: Sasha Summers
Series: Teens of Black Falls Texas #1
My Copy: Ebook from Publisher
BookWhisperer's Rating: 

Allie had big plans for the future. Falling for a cowboy wasn't part of it.

1. Get out of Black Falls Texas - aka Redneck Hell
(Graduation was eight months away. After that, she was out of there.)

2. Avoid Wyatt Holcomb at all costs.
(Except he was everywhere and kind of hard to ignore since he was hot-and a really nice guy.)

3. Avoid her parents.
(Shouldn't be too hard to do since her father hated her and her mother pretended nothing was wrong.)

4. Stop thinking about Wyatt.
(Which would be a lot easier if he wasn't so sweet... and he'd keep his shirt on.)

5. Decide what she really wants.
(Instead of holding onto the past and the guilt.)

I absolutely adored this book!  I started it less than 24 hours ago and now it is completely finished and wonderfully etched into my memory. 

Allie’s family moves to Black Falls, Texas and she could honestly care less about anything that is happening around her.  After a tragedy, Allie has gone from the perfect daughter to the smart mouth, fly off the handle, and cannot do anything right daughter.  She is flawed. But once she meets Wyatt, her flaws seem to dissipate, even though she avoids any contact.  Wyatt’s amazing strength, love, and character pulls Allie into the light and she slowly realizes that she cannot blame herself for everything.

However, while Wyatt is handsome and brilliant, he is just as flawed as well.  You find that they become each other’s crutch throughout the story; someone to rely on and comfort.  It is beautiful to see these characters grown with each other while drama is ever so present.

I will have to give the award to the most amazing side character goes to Dax, Allie’s twin brother.  Always hilarious with his witty remarks, Dax brings a new dimension to the story.  While he misses Allie’s best friend just as much as she does, he tries his best to pull Allie back up on her feet.  He is a loving brother that has his own little story on the side.  I really hope that one of the books in this series is about Dax and Molly.  While Allie and Wyatt’s characters and love stole the show, Dax and Molly brought just as much as light and drama to the forefront.

What a WONDERFUL review! Thank you so much for the book-love. I admit, Dax has a special place in my heart too. He and Molly play a much more central role in the next book - so yay!
Thanks for making my Tuesday awesome!
