Cam McKay joined the military as he knew the family ranching life was not for him.  When a career ending battle injury sends him home, he finds that law enforcement might just be the niche for him.  The only question is, can he give up enough control to let himself have what he really wants in life and deal with the lingering PTSD issues from his time overseas? 

Domini Katzinski had to grow up fast.  As an orphan in the Ukraine she has been in charge of all of her decisions since age 11.  She has seen so much destruction in her life, even in the relationships of those around her, that she only wants short-term relationships.  Or at least that is what she thinks.  Will she finally meet her match in Cam? 

Once Cam figures out that sweet sexy Domini might just be what he has been looking for will he be willing to play by her rules or will he take charge, deal with his demons and get what he really wants? 

Sigh...I have been waiting for Cam’s story for a few books now, and the wait was definitely worth it.  I thoroughly enjoyed how Ms. James tied this ‘non cowboy’ into the rest of the family and dealt with all the issues that would come from being injured while serving our country.  Domini was just the type of strong woman he needed to move to the next stage of his life.  I think Shoulda Been A Cowboy is the best of the seven Rough Riders books to date and can hardly wait for the next one. I think little sister is due for her own book. Therefore I “Joyfully Recommend” Shoulda Been A Cowboy
