Review by Jasmine
Jesse has no problem attracting women, but all they want is a relationship, marriage, family the works. Angela, his best friend's baby sister, is the only woman he never thought of as girlfriend material. That is, until she gives him dance lessons and he discovers beneath her prim, repressed shell is the sexual temptress he's always wanted.
Angela is attracted to Jesse, but their relationship can't be anything but complicated since he's engaged to another woman, or so she thinks. When Jesse reveals the truth behind his "engagement," and his feelings for Angela, will the flames of desire still burn hot, or is Angela just after a bad boy?
Sex and sin never went together so well.
Casual sex...or, everlasting love…
Angela has been in love with her brother’s best friend, Jesse Burke, since she was seventeen years old. Unfortunately, Jesse has never treated her like anything more than an unwanted little sister. That is, until Lydia, the woman he’s supposedly engaged to convinces him to take dance lessons from Angela to cure his two left feet and increase his sensuality. What starts out as a challenge, turns into intense sexual attraction, and eventually, one last fling with her brother’s best friend. Angela knows that Jesse isn’t the marrying type, but more the love’em and leave’em type. Therefore, when he agrees to let her become the other woman, she can barely contain her excitement. Their first encounter of unbridled, scorching hot sex is enough to arouse the most frigid woman. But, will Angela and Jesse be able to handle the crossover from friends to lovers because there is definitely no turning back now?
Cowboys Don’t Dance is similar to a feel good movie or soap opera. It has every thing from the conniving witch to the damsel in distress. The witch is someone you love to hate and can’t wait for her to get what she truly deserves. While... the damsel is someone who might look strong on the outside but is being torn apart on the inside. She’s in love with someone who might never lover her back. And it can't be complete without the ruggedly handsome hero who finally sees the light at the end of the tunnel and takes a risk on love.
This book had me engrossed from page one and I hope there will be a sequel that involves Angela’s brother Beau. The characters came to life on the page and made me feel like I was a part of the small town in Texas. There were times I wanted to weep for Angela and slap Lydia for being such a vindictive witch. There were also times I couldn’t help but laugh at the antics the characters exhibited in the book. Definitely a great book.
If you’re looking for a book that is full of drama that will make you laugh and cry, uninhibited, hot scorching sex, intense passion between the two main characters, and a good cowboy brawl, then Cowboys Don’t Dance is the perfect read for you. However, be forewarned, this book is not for the faint of heart. The sex scenes are hot enough to set your e-reader on fire and contain some sexual play with toys, a stripper pole, and a romp in the hay. I would definitely recommend this book to my friends. Bravo Ms. Lyons and Ms. Denis! You’ve hit a home run with Cowboys Don’t Dance.
