FALLING FOR A BOSSY COWBOY by Karen Baney Book Tour Giveaway

My Review: 

After reading the first two books from Karen Baney's Vargas Ranch series, Falling for a Real Cowboy and Falling for a Shy Cowboy, I wanted to have the opportunity to read the third addition, Falling for a Bossy Cowboy. Even though this is a series, they each can easily be read as a stand alone. I loved getting to know Derin and Madison. It was fun watching the two interact with one another. I thought their story was fun and entertaining. There were a few scenes that made my eyes tear up and others that put a smile on my face. My favorite of this series. 

I had the opportunity to listen to the audio version of Falling for a Bossy Cowboy. The narration was done in variety of voices, making it unique and different from most audiobooks I have listened to. I thought it was a nice touch and an interesting performance. I did not want to stop it until the last word was read.

I am giving Falling for a Bossy Cowboy five plus stars. I believe readers who enjoy reading clean romance with the opposites attract aspect, will like it as much as me, if not more. I will be on the look out for releases from Karen Baney in the future. She has earned herself a new fan. This one is definitely not to be missed. 

I received a audio version of Karen Baney's Falling for a Bossy Cowboy from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
