About the book:

One cowboy. One cowgirl. One ranch.
Who will win the Double Deuce by the Fourth of July?

Adele O'Donnell knew that Double Deuce Ranch had to be hers the second she walked onto the property. Freshly divorced, she sees it as the perfect spot for her and the kids to start a new life. Remington Luckadeau was always a carefree playboy...until his suddenly orphaned nephews became his responsibility. The Double Deuce Ranch would be the perfect place to raise two boys. But some fiery woman is fighting him for it, and Remington is not sharing-no matter how the sparks fly when he and Adele are together.

My Thoughts:
The premise for Talk Cowboy to Me caught my attention right away because it promised a fun antagonistic romance, and with Carolyn Brown, I can almost guarantee I’ll have a good time!

Remy Luckadeau and Adele O’Donnell want the same property, and must work and live together for one month to prove they’re the right fit for a beloved ranch. Remington and Adele see the Double Deuce Ranch as a perfect property to raise their respective children.   For Adele moving off her ex’s ranch means starting a new life with her two daughters, free of the man that so easily tossed them aside. Remy is left with the care of his two young nephews when his brother dies, and wants them to have the down-to-earth upbringing he had. Neither is willing to give up without a fight let the competition begin, and the sparks fly!  

There are definitely sparks of attraction between Remy and Adele, but both are cautious, with good reason. Adele has much more to risk than her heart as a mother of two, but Remy brings out emotions that even her ex-husband couldn’t. Remy has been a tried-and-true-player, only interested in a one-night stand or at the most a weekend, but he’s dealing with much more than a fleeting attraction with Adele. Working side by side he’s come to admire Adele: her feistiness, work-ethic and big heart.  The O’Donnell’s and Luckadeau’s start off with an adversarial relationship, the girls against the boys, but soon working together they form a grudging respect; actually begin to like each other.  Before they realize it, neither can picture life at the Double Deuce without each other, one big blended family. 

I love the way Carolyn Brown depicts ranch life: minding cattle, farming, cooking and canning, sipping sweet tea on a porch swing while watching the sunset after a hard day of work.  It sounds like an old-fashioned, simpler way of life, and it appeals to this tired city girl. 

Carolyn Brown captured my heart again with this sweet, sassy Southern romance.  I laughed and swooned in equal parts while reading, and I was thrilled how everything worked out!
