Aidan loyal Cowboy by Cathy McDavid 4 stars Thier is really two stories in the ebook I was given to read by Netgalley. The first is Aiden Loyal Cowboy. Aiden is a hard worker he is a Vet. and helps runs his family horse business. Aiden broke up with Flynn in collage after his dad died leaving the ranch in a mess. Now Flynn is living back at the ranch next to Aiden after her divorce. They ended up eating dinner at same place and ended sleeping together. After Aiden made excuses and left. He did not call her but after running into 3 weeks later apolgised. Flynn was pregnant but she was not getting married just because she was having a child. Flynn wanted to be first with Aiden and wanted his love. Aiden did not want Flynn to move to another town. He wanted her to marry him. Aiden wanted to be with her but was too busy to spend all his time with 'Flynn between his Vet practice and running the ranch. Something had to give. I liked the characters and could understand both points of views. Want to also know what Aiden's brothers are up too. Can't wait to read the next book in the series. I was given this ebook in exchange for honest review. 07/03/2012 PUB Harlequin American Romance Family Plan by Cathy McDavid Family Plan is the bonus book included in the ebook I recieved. 4 STARS It was copywrited 2008. I enjoyed it. Great strong women characters. Jolyn Sutherland has come after being on the road for 9 years in the Wild and Wooly West Equestrian show. she rode bareback and jumped a wagon full of mock settlers. Till the last show when they missed and she almost lost her leg. Jolyn while she was having surgery after surgery and physical therapy got her contractors license and is going into business in her own small home town. Chase Raintree is the town vet. He is an old friend of Jolyn and even kissed once. He married her best friend from high school. Now divorced and single father. He hired Jolyn to build his new vet clinic. Mandy his Chase's 8 year old daughter well their is a chance he wasn't but he did not want to have DNA testing done to find out. Jolyn mom has been trying to push Chase to get the testing done because their is a chance that Mandy is her grandaughter. Steven Jolyn brother had a affair with SherryAnne after she was only married three months. This was a animal friendly story. I admire Chase willing to raise his daughter by himself and not wanting to take an easy out.
Aidan is indeed the Loyal Cowboy. Cathy McDavid gives readers a heartwarming story and American romance that will stir many emotions. Between Ace and Flynn it's hard to discern who is the most stubborn, but their almost constant arguing is highly amusing. McDavid puts her characters in real situations and makes it obvious that neither of them are perfect. The most enjoyable aspect of Loyal Cowboy is the growth Ace and Flynn undergo. They learn to work together, overcome past hurts, and understand the importance of sacrifice all for the sake of their baby. The emotions that spill from the pages are genuine and gets readers involved in the pending decisions in their lives. Between the fights about their future McDavid allows Ace and Flynn to experience very intimate moments. These moments shudder with love and excitement adding to the overall romantic feel of the story. Loyal Cowboy features a sexy vet whose love for animals and duty doesn't outweigh his love for family. A truly lighthearted story that will lift spirits and give a whole new meaning to happy endings! **BONUS STORY: The Family Plan - 4/5 The Family Plan is the perfect bonus story following Cathy McDavid's Aidan: Loyal Cowboy! With themes revolving around family and of course, romance, The Family Plan is a story to not overlook. In this work, McDavid puts much emphasis on family ties and loyalty. Jolyn has finally began building up her construction company, thanks to her longtime crush and local vet, Chase. Unfortunately, growing closer to Chase may give her mother more ammunition to meddle in to Chase's relationship between Jolyn and his young daughter, Mandy. McDavid really hits the nail on the head when it comes to dramatic storytelling. From irresponsible or pushy mothers to budding romances with big obstacles, readers will enjoy not knowing what may happen next or the surprise at what comes. The Family Plan is an optimistic story where everyone may have their differences, but in the end they put them aside to make way for a happy ending.
