The Cowboy’s Pregnant Fake Fiancee, Mary Sue Jackson and Leslie North

The Cowboy’s Pregnant Fake Fiancée by [Mary Sue Jackson, Leslie North]

Genre: Romance, General Fiction (adult).

Well, like many others in these weird times, the uncertainty of life has affected my reading, and sometimes I’m finding it hard to concentrate on a story. I usually avoid this type of read, scarred in memory from the old 60’s/70’s M&B mum used to read. Of course M&B has moved forward and as I liked the sound of this I gave it a try. It turned out to be just what I needed, a sweet romance, some humour, a little angst and an easy to read story.
Dean, in the spotlight at the top of his game for a few years now, but I could still feel his need to prove to himself he made his own life, and his insistence that unlike his dad no-one was changing it. He’s got a real chip on his shoulder about his childhood home and the lady his dad married after Dean’s mum died.
I could understand him, he’s got no deep hidden corners, he’s a charmer, a grafter and that’s worked well for him. Injury has sidelined him for a bit and he’s just bought a ranch in the town where he met Marley for a one nighter. Usually he can move on easily, but somehow Marley has stayed in his thoughts. Then he learns of the consequences of that night….
Marley, she was so sweet, such a genuine lady, and always out to please her mum, to live up to what feels like impossible expectations. She veered off that track though when she split with Trevor, and mum and her friends haven’t forgiven her for it.
I loved Marley, but her mum was a true horror. I didn’t understand why she was so controlling, it was clear she loved Marley, thank goodness Marley’s sister was far more independent, and she was such a great help to Marley.
I felt their dad was a cop out, didn’t understand how he could just sit back and let his wife be so awful to Marley. Still, folks are weird, and though this is booklandia, real life has folk like that too.

I loved the day to day stuff, the town and their little battles, her ex and his blind insistence they would get back together, and of course Marley and Dean together. It was clear they were suited, they had a very hot attraction for each other, but also respected each other. Still, Dean’s lived a long while alone and being a couple calls for some changes to his life, but he didn’t always see it.

Stars: Four, a sweet romance, some humour, a little angst and an easy to read story.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
