    perfect western romance

    The Last Cowboy had all of the elements necessary to create the perfect feel good western romance. The backdrop for the story was Jackson Hole, Wyoming near the Teton Mountains. McKenna had me longing to see this picturesque country side. Next, she stirred in sexy, heart weary rancher, Slade McPherson. She introduced Dr. Jordana Lawton, a woman who could see through his stubborn exterior. Then, she sprinkled on a villainous neighbor, an estranged brother, disaster and a couple of beautiful horses. The Last Cowboy grabbed me at page one and held me till the final page. The characters had depth and the plot moved quickly. The storyline was believable and the romance felt fresh. The sub-plot to the novel dealt with horse training and McKenna's knowledge of the subject was apparent. I found it to be interesting and it made ranch life burst to life. This was the perfect read for a rainy day and I enjoyed it immensely. McKenna left the door wide open for follow up stories to this tale, and I'd be happy to go back again. I want to thank netGalley and Harlequin Publishing for the ARC, in exchange for my unbiased review.

    This book revolves around two characters and their involvement i

    This book revolves around two characters and their involvement in endurance riding. Jordana was a doctor who enjoyed endurance riding as a hobby and dreamed of entering a race but knew she needed training first.  She asked Slade, who is a champion endurance rider, if he would accept her as a student at his endurance school in Jackson Hold, Wyoming. He didn't want to accept her but finally did.

    Most of the story describes horses, their movement and endurance riding which the reader needs to know in order to understand endurance eventing which is the main focus in this book.  This information is very detailed and accurate however a bit boring for the average reader - whether you are interested in horses or not.

    I found the equine descriptions interesting since I have owned many horses over the years. My absolute favourite horse was an Arabian mare. I never competed, just rode for fun but my all time high was when we were galloping across the fields. 

    This story did remind me of those adventures so I enjoyed that part of this book.  Again, I will say that this book is not for everyone.

    This book was hard to read and rate but I finally decided on this.

    Description of horses and events - 4 stars

    Story line - 2 stars

    So I decided to go with an overall rate of 3 stars
