Book Review: Runaway Cowboy by Keira Cole


   Runaway Cowboy (The Bonifay Family, #2)Runaway Cowboy by Keira Cole
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Well first off, this is the first time I have read a cowboy story, but I do love watching western movies.  This is the First book I have read that is written by Keira Cole.  I do like her style of writing, very easy to follow. I like how she builds the characters and we begin to care for the people in the story.
The main story is about Rebecca, she has 3 other sisters and one brother, the brother is going away and he wanted another man there, their parents were killed a few years ago and they have a ranch in Texas to keep going.  One of the sisters is married and her husband is leaving to go to the war. So enters Jesse, strong good looking cowboy but with self-esteem issues, he had a poor upbringing. So this is part of his personal issues. He does have a heart and doesn't want to hurt Rebecca.
To me the story is good, simple and sweet with some sorrow in it as well.  I am not big on the sex part of the story, but the love story is nice, and yes I have to say I skipped the sex scenes. But I really loved the story.
I do think the writer could have developed the characters even better, but it is a good start and I hope she writes more about each sibling as I loves stories that have a book for each sibling.
I would definitely keep reading the whole series.
This book didn’t take me long to read, it was interesting.
I did receive this book for an honest review from Netgalley. 
What it says it is about on
The second book in the Bonifay Family series by Keira Cole, following Come and Get It 

As one of the youngest Bonifays, Rebecca suffered the most when her parents died, but with the strength of her close-knit Texas family behind her, she came through it and now helps run the Bonifay ranch and her own horse rescue operation. She’s also matured into a sexy and beautiful woman with an itch that needs scratching. Setting her sights on Jesse English, the dark cowboy who’s recuperating at the ranch, Rebecca decides it’s time to stop letting her older siblings call the shots and start taking charge of her own desires. 

Jesse is a drifter through and through. Orphaned at a young age, he’s seen the worst of state care and foster homes, and he knows better than to put down roots in any one place for long. Scarred by his drug-addled father, he knows he’s not good-looking enough for a woman like Rebecca, and with nothing to offer her, he just wants to get healthy at the ranch and move on before he gets hurt again. 

As Jesse begins to heal and Rebecca makes it more than clear that she wants the moody and ruggedly handsome cowboy to be her first, he has to fight every impulse he has as a man to keep her at a distance. But there’s no denying the headstrong beauty or the raging passion building between them, and as the two struggle with their conflicting needs they discover a stronger connection that just might give them both the chance to mend their damaged hearts. 

“Absolutely adorable and very hot!”
