A year’s worth of novellas from twelve inspirational romance authors. Happily ever after guaranteed. As far as Kelsey Wilcox is concerned, her last cowboy was the last cowboy. Kelsey Wilcox has had enough of cowboys. After the last one broke her heart, Kelsey traded in her boots for flip-flops, and the open range for a bistro on the beach. Her life on Corpus Christi’s gorgeous beach might be a little lonely, but at least it’s heartbreak-free. At least until her cousin’s beachside wedding bucks Kelsey right back into the rodeo. When unlucky-in-love Brent Corbin packed his groomsman’s tux for his friend’s wedding, he brought his boots and belt buckle with him. Brent isn’t exactly looking for love, but when he sees what appears to be a mermaid in distress, he jumps right in to rescue her. So Kelsey finds herself plucked from the sea—and certain-drowning—by a gorgeous groomsman . . . in soaked cowboy boots. She’s quick to say thanks, but no thanks. Brent dedicates the weekend to pursuing Kelsey—and Kelsey spends the weekend trying to deny an obvious match. She’s as stubborn as a wild horse, but Brent’s determination may tame her yet.
After a rodeo cowboy broke her heart, Kelsey Wilcox decided to trade in her boots for flip flops and move to the beach. Two years later she has to endure an entire weekend at her cousin’s beach wedding. Brent Corbin has had plenty of bad luck with women and he isn’t looking for love at all this coming wedding weekend. when Brent rescues Kelsey he thinks that maybe this woman can change his mind but Kelsey wants nothing to do with him. Being a part of the same wedding party the two keep getting thrown together and Brent wants to learn more about Kelsey but she won’t give him the time of day.
I am not a huge cowboy fan but I have to admit that this wedding novella was actually pretty cute. The matchmaker relatives that were thrown into the story where pretty funny and lightened up the story a lot. I think they kept everything pretty entertaining and lots of fun to read. This novella only kept me entertained for the comedy. I didn’t get attached to the characters at all. Brent and Kelsey actually seemed to bore me a lot, I was glad for the minor characters to keep me a little more entertained.
