Crazy About a Cowboy (Tying the Knot in Texas #3) by Dylann Crush
Publication Date: May 25th 2021 by Berkley
Jasper Taylor is in a bind. The farm that’s been in his family for generations has lost most of their pecan orchard when a twister swept through leaving them with a fraction of pecans to sell. With his town of Ido becoming a premier wedding destination Jasper wants to fix up the old barn and make it a rustic wedding/event venue to make ends meet. Ido winning “Most Romantic Small Town in Texas” would help guarantee success, which is why he agrees to become hospitality host to the judge: Miss Lovin’ Texas, Delilah Stone.
Beauty queen, Delilah Stone has just thirty more days until she can hang up her pageant career for good and focus instead on the projects close to her heart: Helping empower girls with confidence through classes and mentoring. First, she must get through staying in Ido, and they don’t seem to stand much of a chance in the competition. However, as Delilah gets to know the people and tours all the attractions they’ve set up, the more she warms up to it. A big part of that is the sexy farmer showing her around: Jasper Taylor, not to mention his family. The Jasper family and the townsfolk of Ido resurrect her childhood longing to part of a bigger family.
All the romantic events Jasper and Delilah embark on make it impossible to ignore the instant attraction they feel for each other. “The farmer’s son and the beauty queen” sounds like an opposites-attract romance, but Jasper and Delilah basically wanted the same thing: to belong. A relationship between Jasper and Delilah is a little inconvenient since they don’t want any hint of impropriety for the contest, but it wasn’t a big source of conflict. There was also someone trying to sabotage Ido in the contest and a bit of drama surrounding that, but mostly this was just a sweet, feel good romance!
A farmer’s son must convince a beauty queen that his town is the most romantic small town in Texas, all while making sure his rival town doesn’t sabotage the competition—but can win her over without falling head over heels?
While locals know Ido is the most romantic town in Texas, it still has some tough competition from larger, more well-known towns. But when the neighboring town is disqualified from the running, Mayor Lacey Cherish thinks they may finally have a fighting chance…with the right hospitality host, that is. Desperate to save his family farm by garnering more tourism, Jasper Taylor agrees to take on the role. He will do anything it takes to win Ido the title, even if it means catering to a beauty queen’s every whim for a month.
When the panel comes to evaluate the town, former beauty queen-turned-reluctant-judge, Delilah Stone, receives a less than perfect welcome. Everything that could possibly go right goes wrong, and Delilah is more convinced than ever that Ido doesn’t stand a chance against the competition. While it could just be a series of unlucky coincidences, Jasper thinks the root of their misfortunes may be a figure from his past who he hoped was out of his life for good…
Now it’s up to Jasper to show Delilah just how romantic the town of Ido can be, even if it means losing his own heart in the process.
