Author: Cora Seton
Genre: Contemporary Romance
This is totally not the type of book that I would normally read. I've just not had much interest in regular romances. I'm more into paranormal romance or even sci-fi romance. So imagine my surprise when I loved it! This book was recommended to me by Lexxie through the COYER challenge. Yes, I added and read the book after starting the challenge. So much for cleaning out my e-reader huh? But I'm so glad that I read this! It is book 4 in the Cowboys of Chance Creek series but I didn't find any part in the book that was lacking due to not reading the previous books in the series. The title of the first book is so funny I'm dying to read it: The Cowboy's E-mail Order Bride. Yes, that's right I think I'll read more. Even if it's only Cora Seton.
The concept for this book sounds cheesy at first... a reality show where a broke person competes against a billionaire. But it's not like it sounds at all. Bella is tricked into going on the show and Evan is doing it as a last chance to keep his company. The competition between the two is fierce as well as the attraction. Bella and Evan were very believable characters. Despite the whole billionaire thing Evan was relatable and I found myself torn between rooting for Bella and Evan to win the contest. Both of them bring a lot of phobias and issues from childhood to the table and seeing them overcome their fears was great.
The Cowgirl Ropes a Billionaire had me up half the night and I think I finished it in record time! It had me laughing so hard at times and also made me cry a few too. My favorite part other than the ending was the golf course part of the competition. I was also really excited about the geocaching competition because I geocache! I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a good romance. It was a fun read and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
