Her Favorite Cowboy
by Mary Leo
Genre: Contemporary Romance/ Cowboy Romance
Gage Remington needs a place to start over, and Durango, Colorado, is it. By reconciling with his rancher grandfather while attending the annual Zane Grey conference, Gage hopes he can begin repairing past damage. It doesn't occur to Gage that his heart needs fixing, too, until he meets gorgeous doctor Cori Parker. And he's sure his troubled past will send the single mom running.
Since her husband's tragic accident, Cori's been focusing on her family. Though she's deeply attracted to the banker-turned-buckaroo, Gage is a wild card, and Cori can't let anyone bring her life crashing down again. Still, she realizes Gage's finally ready to be the man—and the cowboy—he always wanted to be. But will Cori be part of his future, or one more regret from his past?
I tried really hard to finish this one. There were lots of things wrong with this including a male "hero" who I didn't like at all. He was obnoxious, stalker-ish, and had a terrible personality. The female character was so wish washy. There were several minor details that bothered me including a medical issue scene at the beginning of the book. As someone in healthcare, things didn't add up. And then there were what felt like timeline discrepancies. Gage's grandpa was a jerk and the only character I really liked was nine year old Hailey. I made it to about 23%, then skimmed til 43% before I just had to give up.
