Blog Tour: Slow Burn Cowboy by Maisey Yates

Author: Maisey Yates
Publisher: Harlequin
Date of publication:

In Copper Ridge, Oregon, a cowboy’s best friend might turn out to be the woman of his dreams… 
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.
Also includes a bonus Copper Ridge novel, Take Me, Cowboy!

Slow Burn Cowboy is the seventh book in the Copper Ridge series and the second one that I have read.  I thought this one did a much better job as a stand  alone novel as it introduces a lot of new characters and didn't rely on a lot of back story.  This is Finn and Lane's book.  They have been best friends for 10 years, but lately, they have booth been having trouble denying their feelings for each other. 

I did enjoy this one for the most part.  I liked Lane and Finn.  Their relationship felt comfortable and the leap from friends to lovers wasn't so hard to buy into.  There was also very little angst and that was refreshing.  More than the romance, I liked the story-line of Finn's brothers coming back home. Each of them seem to be looking for something and they are hoping that the ranch their grandfather lef them will hep provide that.  None of them really grew up together, so it will be interesting watching the brothers' relationship develop over the next few books.

The only thing that I didn't care for in the book was the long passages of inner thought in the middle of a conversation.  Who does that in real life?  Sometimes, I forgot what they were talking about.  I also didn't care for the way Lane rambled on and on over everything.  I get that it was supposed to be amusing, but it got old after a while.  

Despite that, I do recommend this pone.  It's a cute friends to lovers story and a pretty quick read.  I look forward to the next one.
