Annie Grissom prefers to spend her time with dogs rather than people. She trains dogs for movies, and she’s perfectly happy to keep on doing just that. But, then, a charming cowboy worked his way into her life. She’s not sure how he captured her heart, because it was supposed to be just for fun and end when the movie wrapped up. Now she’s pregnant with his baby, in love, and uncertain he wants her in his life. Dustin Worthington has always been a drifter. He drifts from one cattle farm to another when he gets tired of the same old scene. He craves adventure, but a sweet dog-trainer is in town working on a movie not far from him. He finds he can’t resist her and starts to question his future plans. Could he settle down in one place for the rest of his life? The Cowboy and His Baby is a sweet and spicy romance that kept me up all night reading. I absolutely loved Annie Grissom and her love for dogs. Her character captures your heart right from the beginning. She’s anything but a typical heroine from her red hair to the freckles that cover her skin. And who can resist a charming cowboy with a sense of humor? Certainly not me. Dustin Worthington put a silly grin on my face right from the start. Peppered with interesting characters, this novel keeps you engaged throughout. It will be tough to set this novel aside, so you might want to grab a lazy Sunday afternoon and read from beginning to end. Lose yourself in this romance, you’ll be happy that you did.

It was supposed to be a fling as far as Annie was concerned. However, she walked away pregnant. Furthermore, she has no intention of letting Dustin, a ranch hand with an ungainly reputation know. She is determined to get back to work as an animal trainer, including all the traveling to the various movie sets she works on. Yes, life will go on and she will be a good mother. Dustin let his guard down as far as Annie was concerned. Always a man who loved to flirt, he always held back. But with Annie, things were different. She got under his skin and now has simply disappeared. He has no idea why and definitely was not aware that she is carrying his child. I have read and enjoyed other cowboy romances with a baby, as it is a repeated trope. This one was no exception. For one thing the dynamics in this book were excellent. For starters, Annie’s relationship with her dog Spidey was absolutely wonderful. I also enjoyed Annie and Dustin together, especially when Dustin goes to whatever lengths necessary to prove how he feels about Annie. While it may have been weird for Annie to just leave Dustin, her reasons were understandable, although I kept saying: Talk to him! If you love animals, and how they enhanced the lives of our primary characters, then this book might just please you. For a quick and enjoyable read with a warm conclusion, be sure to pick up a copy of this delightful read by Jessica Clare. Many thanks to Berkley and to NetGalley for this ARC to review in exchange for my honest opinion.

3.5 stars--THE COWBOY AND HIS BABY by Jessica Clare is a contemporary, adult, stand alone, cowboy romance story line focusing on twenty-nine year old, ranch hand Dustin Worthington, and professional dog trainer Annie Grissom. Told from dual third person perspectives (Dustin and Annie) THE COWBOY AND HIS BABY follows the building relationship between twenty-nine year old, ranch hand Dustin Worthington, and professional dog trainer Annie Grissom. While on location in Painted Barrel, Wyoming, professional dog trainer Annie Grissom met ranch hand Dustin Worthington, the man with whom she would fall in love. A quick courtshi, and one night of $ex ended when Annie came face to face with Dustin’s past, a past that wasn’t finished with our story line hero. Fast forward to present day wherein eight months would pass before Los Angeles based Annie would see Wyoming ranch hand Dustin again, a very pregnant Annie who had yet to tell Dustin about the child they conceived. What ensues is the rebuilding friendship and relationship between Annie and Dustin, and the potential fall-out as Annie believes she interrupted Dustin’s future plans, and in doing so, sets the stage for our heroine to run, yet again. Annie Grissom trains dogs for Hollywood movies but struggles with a direction in her life. Meeting Dustin Worthington meant a few days of $ex and fun, never thinking that Dustin would be part of her future. Dustin Worthington was biding his time in Painted Barrel, Wyoming until the day he would set sail around the world but Annie’s return meant a different future for Dustin, a future that included a child and perhaps a wife. The relationship between Annie and Dustin is one of immediate attraction but Annie knows her time in Wyoming comes with an expiry date. There are definitely some issues of miscommunication and a lack of trust, issues that will send Annie running at the first and second sign of perceived problems. The $ex scenes are passionate and intimate, without the use of over the top sexually graphic language and text. The world building focuses on the up and down relationship between our story line couple, a relationship that saw several months apart without any information or history revealed. Annie’s mother is over the top-her advice and support of her daughter is questionable as to the intent or desired results. Annie’s friend and rep for the American Humane Society Katherine offers more negative advise and warnings; and Dustin’s ex is a piece of work, who in reality, would be fired for the things she says while at work and on the job. THE COWBOY AND HIS BABY is a story of miscommunication, doubt and mistrust; of lies and deceit; of attraction, romance, and falling in love. The premise is engaging; the romance is passionate; the characters are charismatic and sassy. I question some of the reality including the actions of Dustin’s ex-there is no way she would be allowed to say the things she does at work without repercussions or losing her job: and Annie’s lack of a spine regarding Dustin’s past was a bit disconcerting under the circumstances but such is the nature of romantic story lines, otherwise there would have be no conflict to resolve.

The Cowboy and His Baby is a contemporary western romance by Jessica Clare. Jessica Clare is a pen name for romance author Jill Myles. I’ve not previously read any of the author’s books under either name, but I found this novel to be very enjoyable. Annie is a dog trainer working on a movie set when she meets local cowboy, Dustin. The two begin a lighthearted romance that turns complicated when Annie finds herself unexpectedly pregnant. Dustin and Annie have some heavy thinking to do, but the overall feel of the story is still light. The Cowboy and His Baby is a quick, fun read. The main characters, Dustin and Annie are both well-developed and relatable. The dialogue is fresh and funny. The romance is sweet. Nothing to dislike. This is a 5 out of 5 star read. I was given the opportunity to read an advance copy of this book as part of Penguin's First to Read program. However, the opinions expressed in this review are 100% mine and mine alone.
