BOOK REVIEW- Cold Heart, Warm Cowboy by Caitlin Crews *
Ty Everett ran off to the rodeo when he turned eighteen and has been riding bulls ever since…until his last fall causes partial amnesia and he must return to Cold River Ranch to figure out what comes next. But how can he pick his next move when he can’t remember how he got here in the first place—much less the beautiful woman who appears at the ranch, claims she knows him, and warms his cold heart for the first time since he woke up in the hospital?
Rodeo Queen Hannah Monroe gave up her crown for Ty Everett, and her innocence. What she wants from Ty now is a divorce. But Ty can’t remember her—or their secret wedding, or even the son she never meant to hide from him—and Hannah is torn. How can she leave the man she can’t forget and still loves despite herself? And even if she’s willing to start over, what will happen when the truth comes out? AMAZON 4
Emotional, Explosively Emotional. Those are the words that I would use if I had to compact it into just a few. And there was plenty of angst to go around. Neither one of the main characters had experienced a delightful childhood either. They both carried pain and more pain. And when they re-meet again the pain just goes on for both of them. But they also have some interesting moments too. It's not all pain or I wouldn't have continued being interested in the story. It was about some pretty complex people though.
It was interesting to watch the three brothers together. Ty was hiding who he really was, even with what he could remember. Hannah was beginning to see that. She also observed the youngest brother, Brady hid as well. She saw the business man, the powerhouse that he really was. And how often he stuffed it down around his brothers, especially Gray. Gray was pretty much..what you saw was what you got. Even though from all accounts he had changed for the better after marrying Abby.
It was a fight almost every step of the way. It left me wondering how any things could or would work out for Hannah and Ty. And also how Ty was going to find out about his son. I just knew it would be in the worst way possible and I didn't know what his reaction was going to be.
The book comes to an intense ending, in keeping with the intense nature of the whole book.
