AJ Foster has been in love since she
was five years old. Too bad her dream cowboy has only seen
her as his little sister’s best friend, and therefore, a
little sister for her entire life. What he and everyone
else have not realized is that AJ is determined to get what
she wants. She just has to wait until the timing is right --
when she is home from college taking care of her mother who
has broken her leg.
Cord is stunned when he notices little
Amy Jo at a bar and before he knows that she is also “AJ,”
he's asking those around him who the hottie is. He is
further surprised when she actually propositions him. She
is relentless and he finally gives in to a short-term
affair. AJ doesn’t want a short affair, but she will take
what she can get.
The fun and games might just be what
they both need. But what will happen when their time is
up? Will either have learned anything about the other's
heart? Or will they have just had a great affair?
Cowgirl Up and Ride made me cry, which isn’t a
bad thing. It means I was so involved in the story that I
was upset with something in this “fiction world.” I
thoroughly enjoyed this story and I’m now searching for any
other stories that Ms. James has written about this extended
cowboy family. She also did a wonderful job of weaving the
characters' histories through the story. I thoroughly
enjoyed Cowgirl Up and Ride and think if you
like contemporary western romances, you will, too.
