## Albeit short (80 pages), this little novella packs quite the punch. It was sweet and sexy and overall just a fun read. Both hero and heroine are likeable characters with tons of chemistry. It's always a good sign when I'm smiling while reading. I will read again for sure.

Hot!… and a good story, too! Lauren is a high-powered NYC business exec who just saw her job disappear without warning. All these years, and all she leaves her office with is one cardboard box? Stunned hardly captures her mood when her secret heartthrob and London counterpart, Gavin, suddenly appears and offers his condolences. His advice? She should take some time for herself to sort things out. She should take the key to his empty seaside Texas vacation home for a few days, just to get her head together. Oddly, and against her normal judgment, she takes him up on his offer and heads south. And that is where the fun, the heat, and her future begin. I enjoyed this book very much. Well done. A complimentary copy provided by author/publisher for an honest review.

This was a sweet story with a lot of heat.  The characters had good chemistry and the characters all around were lovable.  The premise for the story intrigued me right away and the author wastes no time in diving right into it.  There was no point at which I was bored at all and it all focused on the relationship between Gavin and Lauren that started at work and what they each had planned for their futures which suddenly seemed different than they’d originally thought. This book was hopefully just a taste of what’s to come.  I can’t wait for the next book in the series.  I want to see more of Gavin and Lauren, as well as learn more about his brothers.  The Shadow Maverick Ranch is looking so good! White Collar Cowboy is a fun, compelling story that I read in one sitting.  It left me satisfied, happy, and eager for more!

4.25 stars: WHITE COLLAR COWBOY is the first instalment and novella in Parker Kincade’s adult, contemporary, western  Shadow Maverick Ranch romance series.  This is Gavin Mathis and Lauren Delgado’s story.  Gavin, along with his twin sister, are the eldest Mathis siblings and he is about to take over the reigns at the family’s Shadow Maverick Ranch. The focus of the storyline is the building relationship between Gavin and Lauren. A friends to lovers storyline, the reader is pulled into a story where Lauren must make a decision about her future, now that she is unemployed.  Enter Gavin Mathis-a former colleague and the man she has crushed on for close to twelve years. When Gavin offers his house on the beach for a weekend to relax, Lauren is quick to accept not realizing that Gavin too, may have had plans of his own. The world building introduces Gavin’s close knit family of five siblings who will be working together towards a common goal-in this-there is the potential for five more storylines. WHITE COLLAR COWBOY is a quick and erotic read that will pull you in from the very start. The sex scenes are sensual and arousing; there is never any question that our couple is attracted to one another. The storyline is well paced for a novella and there is none of the ‘rush to the finish’ of some short stories. Parker Kincade has written an captivating storyline about two people who have loved one another from afar and have been given a second chance for a happily ever after.  I can see  myself becoming addicted to the storylines from the Shadow Maverick Ranch.

For a novella White Collar Cowboy never makes you feel short changed, it's a complete story that fully immerses you in the romantic getaway of former co-workers turned lovers. It's a straight forward story that has no Big Misunderstandings but instead relies on internal conflict stemming from issues every couple faces. Issues of work and long distance relationships, along with unnecessary feelings of guilt, weigh on this couple as their sensual time together solidifies their burgeoning relationship. Lauren spent over ten years devoted to her job to the exclusion of having a life. When she's sent packing she's left feeling lost but committed to finding the life she's denied herself. When given the chance she jumps at the gorgeously sculpted hunk of manliness that offers himself to her without reservations. She's a strong-willed heroine, smart but whose emotions have her jumping to conclusions first before her brains have her doing the right thing. Seeing her unwind during her two weeks with Gavin made for an entertaing and sensual journey of exploration for them both. Gavin is a wonderfully drool-worthy hero devoted to his family which inadvertently causes Lauren to lose her job. Guilt has him wanting to make things right but his unrequited attraction has him wanting to claim her when he offers her the peace and tranquility of his beach house. He's a super sexy hero who's a true romantic and good at taking care of others as seen by the subtle yet loving words and deeds he showers Lauren with. He's loyal and honorable and I'm still dreaming about him. From start to finish this was an entertaining read that didn't drag me through the emotional wringer but instead lulled me into the comfort zone. The characters were likable and never acted in ways other than believable. The sexual interludes were super steamy and took up a large portion of the story while still allowing for the characters to bond on a personal level. This wasn't an earth shattering read but it was enjoyable and has me wanting to read more from Ms. Kincade and I recommend it to those looking for a little afternoon delight.

Parker Kincaide takes us from the board room to the barn in her 2014 release White Collar Cowboy. Lauren is anti-no-nonsense heroine who has the world by the tail, or so she thinks until an unexpected twist occurs. Now she’s unemployed with nowhere to go except straight to the one man she’s always wanted but never thought she could have. The premise is a little different than the average Western but the author does a great job of merging the two together for an enjoyable read. I enjoyed the description of the scenery of Galveston Island. It’s not often that a location will have a role in a romance. That little detail sets the book. Characters are interesting and believable. The story is well done and I enjoyed it. Heat level: 3.5 Rating: 3.5

This was my first Parker Kincade novel and has made me into an instant fan. I’m totally addicted to Cowboys, but when you add brains and tattoos, I’m a complete goner! I’m not going to tell you what happens; you need to read the book. But I will say, that Ms Kincade is right up there with some of the BEST authors of Cowboy romance I have read!! So looking forward to book two!!

I love Parker’s writing style. She has a way of pulling you into the book. Immediately I was hooked. I could not put it down. I love books like that whether it may be a novella or novel. I loved the main characters. They are realistic and I was right there feeling all of their emotions and intensity from their careers and being lovers. And as far as the lovers part of the story? I was so wanting to be Lauren! I fell in love with the business man that wants to go back to being a cowboy. What I love most about Parker’s writing is that her stories are realistic. I feel like her characters are real people, living in the real world. I am a PK fan now and will be reading everything she writes!

This was a really good story about Gavin and Lauren.  Gavin didn't realize a decision that he made would effect Lauren's job.  Lauren has no clue about why she lost her job.  Gavin offers Lauren a place to stay and relax until she figures out what to do.  Lauren doesn't realize that Gavin will be at the beach house.  Sparks fly between these two and I was hoping that they would be able to work everything out once Lauren found out what happened with her job.  I enjoyed this book and am looking forward to reading the rest of the series!
