Cowboy, It's Cold Outside: A Twilight, Texas Novel by Lori Wilde

Everyone in town knows that Christmas in Twilight has a way of bringing lovers together . . . but will its magic bring this pair from “I won’t” to “I do”?

Wearing a too-tight “Santa Baby” costume held in by a double pair of Spanx, Paige MacGregor runs headlong into a gorgeous, grey-eyed hunk of a long, tall cowboy. And not just any cowboy, but country-western star Cash Colton, visiting Twilight to perform in a charity concert. Most women would melt at his feet, but Paige knows all too much about self-assured men with cocky attitudes, so she tells him to get lost.

Cash is in town, nursing his own broken heart, but Paige has knocked him off his feet. He’s convinced she’s perfect—someone to inspire his music and share his now-empty bed. True, he’s not marriage material, but he’s determined to convince her that they’re perfect together—at least for a while. But what he doesn’t count on is falling in love with the one woman who isn’t about to give him the time of day!

Cowboy, It’s Cold Outside is book eight in the Twilight, Texas series by Lori Wilde. First, I want to say that this is my very first book by Lori Wilde. So yes, you can totally read this as a stand alone. There are characters that I am sure have been the focus of previous books in the series but it didn’t detract at all from my enjoyment of this book. And, enjoy it I did. This is a beautifully written, sweet, lovely book. I highlighted so many quotes that I can’t decide which ones to give you. I sighed, swooned, laughed and ached for these two characters. Cash Colton is a country music star that has hit a road block. One year ago, his relationship ended with his girl friend, his band broke up, and his favorite guitar was stolen. And, he stopped hearing the music. A year out of the country to try to find himself doesn’t seem to have helped. He’s come back to Twilight, Texas as a favor to his best friend, Emma, to play in a charity event. It’s December 2. When he arrived at the play house to see Emma’s play, he is greeted at the door by a woman in a sexy Santa Baby outfit, and one look into her eyes, and the music came back. Paige MacGregor certainly isn’t where she thought she would be at this stage of her life. She lost her father eighteen months ago and now has her Grammie in a nursing home. An ex-boyfriend who unbeknownst to her was a con man, has taken everything she has to her name, so now she’s trying to put the pieces back together working three jobs and just trying to hang on while living on a houseboat. When Cash walks into the play house, she felt the world tilt. The connection was like nothing she had ever experienced. But, Paige knows all about suave men who know how to smooth talk a woman. There is no way she is falling for that again. Cash may be used to women falling at his feet but she won’t be one of them. But Cash doesn’t discourage easily. Paige is his muse. Whole songs are exploding into his head every time he sees her. He would somehow convince her to give him a chance. The problem was that Cash never has really committed to a woman and Paige is most definitely not a short term type of woman. But, when their lips finally did touch, everything Cash thought he knew about love changed “When he’d kissed her the world had shifted. It was as if he’d been wearing a blindfold all his life and someone had yanked it off to reveal a lush, beautiful garden full of wondrous things.” “When he kissed her it felt as if she was returning home after years of wandering aimlessly through the world, not even knowing she was searching. And now finding it all the same.” Try as she might, Paige falls and falls hard. But can she ever really fit into Cash’s world? Can she just enjoy the time he is here and let him go when his time is finished? The music Cash is writing is his best work ever. But it’s completely different than what he’s known for. He’s sure that this is the direction he is supposed to take but what will everyone else think? “When I see your face the world fills with music.” I loved every page of this book. These two were perfect for each other but they had so much to work through before they could truly move forward together. Despite everything she had been through, Paige loved everything about Christmas and her sunny attitude filled the pages. And Cash, well, he pretty much had me from the first page. If I have one complaint, it’s that I wanted a little more in the epilogue.

Cowboy, It’s Cold Outside is just the holiday romance I was hoping to read this season! Cash is the kind of cowboy I can get behind (haha, behind pun intended!), with his tight faded jeans and cowboy boots. “The guy was a uterus magnet who turned normal, rational women into blithering idiots.” He’s trying to be anonymous, ditching his trademark beard and hat, but that doesn’t really work, even in the small town of Twilight. His life is a literal county song; one he couldn’t have written any better. As a musician, he’s used to the fans and paparazzi following him everywhere. But after the breakup of his band, he’s really looking to avoid all of the notoriety. For me, Cash’s character feels fleshed out and real. I kept picturing Garth Brooks as Cash. I have no idea why, other than that he’s really the only county singer that I could think of! I especially appreciate how Cash’s character evolves throughout the novel. By the end, he stands up for his convictions, making difficult decisions that have real impact on his life. Paige, on the other hand, is not really a character I would want to be friends with. She is a major people-pleaser, seriously lacking in self confidence, working three jobs to get by, trying to clean up the mess that is her life. “Don’t let her tough act fool you. She’s all soft and squishy on the inside.” While reading the novel, I wanted to shake some sense into Paige due to her lack of self confidence. She doesn’t necessarily let people walk all over her, standing up for herself when it’s necessary. But most of the time, she has a real difficult time saying no and does’t really fight for what she wants. By the end, she has found her confidence and redeems herself. For most of the novel, I found Cash’s story line much more interesting than Paige’s. Reader beware: Cash and Paige are a love at first sight couple. From their initial meeting, the sparks are flying between these two. The romantic scenes are more behind closed doors, but it was during these scenes that the characters really get to know each other personally. To me, this emotional connection is much more intimate than reading sex scenes. Cowboy, It’s Cold Outside follows the typical romance patterns. But that’s why I read romance, for the happily ever after. The witty banter between the characters is quite enjoyable. Ms. Wilde does an excellent job with the dialog in the novel. Often times, it is quite hilarious! I especially reveled in the non-cursing curse words. Cash uses McDang instead of something more offensive. I’ve always believed that there are a lot of words in the dictionary and curse words are not necessary. I appreciated the musical terms and definitions that headed each chapter. This really serves to tie Cash’s love of music into the story. Additionally, the chapter headers give the reader a sense of what will happen in the book without giving away the story. For example, "Finale: Movement or passage that concludes the musical composition." is the last chapter header. I enjoyed Cowboy, It’s Cold Outside a lot. With all of the characters in the novel, I didn’t even realize this was the 8th book in the series. I can easily see myself reading the other books in this series. And I look forward to doing so.

I loved both Paige and cash. Both carrying bundles of past emotional baggage as well as an attraction as bright and hot as the sun. Definitely a book to savor !

Cowboy, It's Cold Outside is cute, heartwarming story set around the Christmas holiday. This story is filled with love, laughs, a few insecurities and cute dog that adds to the laughs. Paige is trying to rebuild her life after being the victim of a conman that took everything from her. She is determined to never fall for a pretty face again. Cash is a popular country-western singer who has also had a rotten string of events happen. His girlfriend left him for his bestfriend, his band broke up and his favorite guitar has been taken. He doesn't believe in love and commitment but when he sees Paige, he finds inspiration for his song writing and a whole lot more. Of course, fate and matchmaking friends have a different plan for them. I was lucky enough to win this book from the publisher in a Goodreads contest but the review is my own thoughts and feelings.
