Overview

It's Christmas in Copper Ridge, and love is waiting to be unwrapped…

Falling for a bad boy once is forgivable. Twice would just be foolish. When Sabrina Leighton first offered her teenage innocence to gorgeous, tattooed Liam Donnelly, he humiliated her, then left town. The hurt still lingers. But so does that crazy spark. And if they have to work together to set up her family winery's new tasting room by Christmas, why not work him out of her system with a sizzling affair?

Thirteen years ago, Liam's boss at the winery offered him a bribe—leave his teenage daughter alone and get a full ride at college. Convinced he wasn't good enough for Sabrina, Liam took it. Now he's back, as wealthy as sin and with a heart as cold as the Oregon snow. Or so he keeps telling himself. Because the girl he vowed to stay away from has become the only woman he needs, and this Christmas could be just the beginning of a lifetime together…

Another great read from this series. (Plus, aeaser excerpt at the end for book one in a spin-off series, and a bonus novella that is a prequel! It's like getting a surprise Christmas present from Maisey Yates!) Christmastime Cowboy is a second-chance romance/enemies-to-lovers hybrid. Practically my catnip! Liam and Sabrina were close in high school--friends, and she hoped, something more--until he rejected her (crushingly, though at least in private) and left for parts unknown, never to return...until he does. And of course they need to work together on a project for their respective workplaces--so you know where that is going, right? Liam and Sabrina had a lot of issues to work out--within themselves, with their families, and in their relationship. Though it felt like slow going at times (is there anything worse than those relationship-with-an-expiration-date plots? So. Much. Angst) they both eventually got to somewhere at least close to where they needed to be in what felt like a realistic way. I loved seeing Liam's interactions with his family (Must. Read. Books 1 & 2, dang it. ASAP) and seeing Clara again, this time as Sabrina's friend and coworker. Grassroots Winery (Sabrina's workplace) is also providing a springboard to the next series, since Olivia lives in Gold Valley. Can't wait for book one! (Though, okay...waiting will give me time to get to Finn and Cain's books, at least. I'll get right on that!) Rating: 4 1/2 stars / A- I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

The last Donnelly just may be down for the count! Liam has always been the hardest to read and the most standoffish, even with his family. We've been getting hints that something happened with Sabrina back when they were teenagers that left it a bitter subject for him, so it's fun to finally get their story! The Copper Ridge characters are always a joy to read and the plot is always thick with family love and angst. Sabrina Leighton has never forgiven her teenage crush Liam Donnelly for rejecting and humiliating her all those years ago when she put her heart on the line and offered herself to him. Hurt and anger has festered and even though she has told herself she despises him, she still finds herself comparing every man she meets to how he made her feel ... and being let down when nothing ever comes close. She's being forced to work with him to get a new tasting room project completed before the Christmas festivities begin, but she's so not happy about it! Liam Donnelly had a nightmare of a childhood and left it scarred and feeling like he wasn't good enough for a goodhearted person like Sabrina, so when her father offered him a free ride to college just to leave his daughter alone, he took the opportunity. He went on to prosper and make a lot of money ... and now is back in Copper Ridge playing his part at working the ranch with his brothers. It's obvious every time they run into each other that the draw and attraction is still there, so eventually they agree to act on it and get it out of their systems while they are being forced to work together on this project ... but when all is said and done, will either of them be able to walk away?

I feel like I've been waiting for Liam's story forever, but it was definitely worth the wait. I loved Sabrina. She's loyal and stronger than she thinks and I loved being in her head. Liam has always been stoic and stand off-ish and stubborn and he was those things in this story as well. Together they have a long history, a lot of feelings, and a crap load of chemistry. Their banter and button pushing was fantastic and the best part was reading them work through everything. It all felt realistic. Plot wise, it was what I expected. The breakup/angsty parts weren't too long and I love seeing the other Donnelly brothers and their families. The ending was perfection and the epilogue was exactly what I wanted to see. I'm pretty sure this is the end of this series, but I'm excited to see what Olivia does as the beginning of the new one. **Huge thanks to Harlequin Books for providing the arc free of charge**

Christmastime Cowboy is book ten in the Copper Ridge series by Maisey Yates. This is my first book by Maisey. I was unsure about jumping in to this series on book ten. There was obviously some missed history on the other characters but it wasn’t difficult at all. Enough information was provided to help me to piece together everything. Liam Donnelly left Copper Ridge when he was twenty years old. He had been living on the Grassroots Winery property working for the Leightons. He and Sabrina Leighton had gotten close over that last summer. She had gotten closer to him than anyone else ever had. He knew she had a big crush on him. But he was broken. He could never be what she needed or deserved. So when her father offered him money to leave, he took it, and bought himself a college education. Over the thirteen years he had been gone, he became a successful business man and made millions. But he still always felt empty inside. And he never forgot Sabrina. Now he’s back, living on the ranch that was left to him and his three brothers. He has seen Sabrina around town a couple of times but she avoids him like the plague. But now he is going into business with the winery she still works at. His farm will provide the cheese and they are opening a wine tasting shop in Copper Ridge. The goal was to have it open by Christmas when all the festivities begin. So Liam will be spending a lot of time with Sabrina over the next few weeks. Sabrina Leighton was thirty years old and was working at the winery which is now owned by her sister-in-law. She knew she was going to be spending a lot of time with a man she had convinced herself she hates over the next few weeks. But she is a professional. She can do it. Thirteen years ago, her innocent, naïve, seventeen year old self had fallen in love with Liam. She offered herself to him only to be turned down. Then she discovered what her father did. Now thirteen years later, she still aches from that awful day. She hates Liam for humiliating her. And she never forgave her father for what he did. But one look at Liam and she knows that she still hasn’t gotten over him, even after all these years. “Apparently it was only Liam that could make her feel like this. She had kissed other men. Had gone on dates. Had tried. She had tried to want someone else. She didn’t. She never had. Another way that she felt irrevocably scarred by Liam Donnelly.” As Sabrina and Liam spend time together, at first things are pretty strained. But eventually, secrets are revealed. And we begin to understand Liam a lot better for his actions. The same goes for Sabrina. “There had been other kisses. Other women since then. But until now he hadn’t realized that there had been a whole part of himself left untouched. A part of himself that only Sabrina had ever come close to.” Liam and Sabrina finally decide to let each other in. They enjoy each other’s company so they agree to a fling just until the opening of their store. But Liam has to wonder if that will be enough. If he will ever have enough. “Sabrina deserved it. He wanted to give her things. And he didn’t even know what exactly he wanted her to have. Just more. Sometimes he felt like he wanted to give her everything.” I have been wanting to read a Maisey Yates book for a long time now. I have to admit, though, that I struggled a bit the first half of this. The only way I can think of to describe it was that it was a bit wordy

Maisey Yates does a great job with the romance between Liam Donnelly and Sabrina Leighton. Liam was Sabrina’s first love and she could never forget him. He couldn’t forget her either. Their happy ever after was well done.
