Cocky in a Cowboy Hat
by Em Petrova
This is book number 3 of the Crossroads series, but you can absolutely enjoy it as a complete stand-alone. If you’ve read the previous books in the series, you get to see the main characters in both make appearances here. If you haven’t read the other books, when you’re done with this one you’re going to want to go back and read those too.
Aidan Bellamy is a confirmed bachelor, but when he falls for Liberty, he falls hard and fast. He is a strong and self-sufficient cowboy, but is also incredibly compassionate toward her. Liberty is still trying to move on from a nasty divorce and an ex-husband who still take great joy in making her life miserable. After she loses her chance to win her dream ranch at auction, Liberty really has no back up plan. When Aiden impetuously offers her a job she just as impetuously accepts. There relationship was wonderfully entertaining, and they have scorching hot chemistry. As usual, Em Petrova writes terrific dialogue and banter that really captures the personalities of her characters.
As much as I really enjoyed the first 2 books in the series, I loved this one even more. I really was sorry when it ended because I enjoyed the characters so very much. The good news is we also get to see who the next book in the series is likely to feature, and I can’t wait to read it!
