Romancing the Conflicted Cowboy (Sage Valley Ranch Book 1) by Crystal Walton

An out-of-place writer risking everything to stay. A conflicted cowboy afraid to risk letting her. And one little arrangement about to become more complicated than either bargained for.

For romance author Callie Claston, visiting a Texas dude ranch to save her career makes perfect sense. The harebrained idea to romance a veterinarian who thinks sending her into cow patty landmines is the art of subtlety, however, might qualify her as crazy. Then again, little does he know how much a challenge fuels her. Until it collides with a dream she never expected to be real.

Single dad Reed Allen has at least two reasons—both with smiles just like his—for trying to run off the intriguing city girl hiding a secret. But when he reluctantly agrees to help Callie with her research, knowing he should stay guarded around her does absolutely nothing to prepare him for the moment when he can’t.

Can a writer who’s never found her own ever-after and a cowboy who lost his too soon restore enough faith in love to start a new chapter together?

I am always happy to see a new book by Crystal Walton.  This is not only a new book but the beginning of a new series!  That is definitely a happy, happy thing.

This book has lots of tender moments but also has many amusing moments as Callie stumbles her way through dude ranch living.  I loved that Callie was able to laugh at herself in those embarrassing moments.  She owned her bumbles and held her chin up.  It made her a fantastic character.  Callie is an author and I loved how she described writing as not just a dream but as something that she just had to do.  It lived within her.  

There was a great build up of chemistry between Reed and Callie.  I loved their interactions and their conversations- especially the heart felt, emotional ones.  Reed is trying to fight his interest and his attraction to Callie but he sure isn't very good at it!  Thank goodness!!  haha.

I really enjoyed this book.  It was easy to settle in with and over before I knew it.  I cannot wait to see what comes next!!  I hear the title for the next book is Falling For The Younger Cowboy.  Sounds interesting for sure!

This book is only $.99 right now so grab it up!  It's also on Kindle Unlimited if you have that.  Happy reading!
