Cowboy In My Pocket was a fun, although highly outlandish, story telling. Packed full of quirky characters, you can't help but laugh at the crazy, stereotypical situations, the over the top circumstances and the convenient bought of amnesia that makes this whole story believable.
For a purely fun and flat out entertaining cowboy read, check out this contemporary romance, Cowboy In My Pocket.

I really liked this book. I have to say that it took a turn that I was not expecting and made for a lot of twists and secrets throughout the book. The main characters had such great chemistry and really sparked ;). The book also had the perfect amount of humor to lighten things up throughout. Great read.Was this review helpful?

Cowboys, amnesia, runaway brides, marriages of convenience, mistaken identity, huge white stallions with room for two, cover models that don't match the characters they portray...the cliches of the romance genre, you say? In COWBOY IN MY POCKET, Kate Douglas takes these tried and true conventions of contemporary romance novels and uses them to create a satire that can be enjoyed as humor--or felt deeply as any serious contemporary romance. When Michelle Garrison, Manhattanite and ace category romance novelist, has a manuscript rejected for lacking a sense of setting, she is pressured to go to a Colorado dude ranch to soak up a little atmosphere. When a car accident causes her to lose her memory, she falls into a marriage to save the ranch scheme by too gorgeous to be true, marriage-shy Taggart Martin. From there on, Ms. Douglas has found a way to have the reader say, 'Oh, no, not that one,' as each convention of the genre lines up for exposure. Yet, as you read on, you find that you begin to warm to Tag and Michelle and secondary characters Coop and Lenore and want everything to turn out all right. It takes a very special writer to write a book that can draw the reader both intellectually and emotionally. Ms. Douglas is that kind of a writer. What starts out as an exploration of the conventions of romance turns into a sensual and emotional original that shines--and, in its way shows why these tried and true conventions still work. This book is available in both electronic and paperback versions. Whichever version you prefer, get this book. Special order it if you have to; it's worth the wait.Was this review helpful?
