Emily moved to Fly Creek because she needed a fresh start. She's still grieving and can't heal from the loss of her fiancé Drew. She's existing, but living is out of the question. After three years she's still not ready to let anyone in. That changes when gorgeous cowboy Adam moves into town and shows an interest. Emily doesn't know Drew was Adam's cousin and she also has no idea he is on a mission. What will happen when she finds out? Adam promised Drew he'll make sure Emily will find happiness again. His stay in Fly Creek is temporary until he's fulfilled his cousin's last wish. He doesn't like small towns because they remind him of his past too much. He planned to befriend Emily, help her and move on, but never counted on falling in love with her. Drew was keeping secrets and now Adam isn't telling Emily the truth either. She deserves more, but will there be a right time to explain everything? Adam doesn't intend to do anything with his feelings, but the attraction is strong. Can he resist it? Her Cowboy's Promise is a wonderful romantic story. Emily went through something incredibly traumatic that made her lose everything she held dear. Fly Creek offers her some comfort, but she can't get over Drew's death. She's a talented and kindhearted woman and deserves happiness after everything that happened to her. That immediately made me care about her and I couldn't turn the pages quickly enough to discover if Adam would keep his promise to his cousin and light up her world. There's plenty of chemistry between them, but Emily is far from ready to love again and that made incredibly interesting reading. Jennifer Hoopes's writing has a nice easy flow. I loved her detailed descriptions of Fly Creek and its inhabitants. She makes the town come to life in a great dynamic way. Even though Her Cowboy's Promise is a story about sadness and trying to move on after a terrible loss it isn't a heavy story. Because of the attraction between the main characters there's plenty of lightness. The story has many different sides and I was intrigued by the secrets Adam is keeping. Her Cowboy's Promise is charming, sweet, captivating and enchanting. I really liked this amazing story.

Wow! What a powerful and emotionally charged story! Just a forewarning, have some tissues close by for this one. It is definitely a heart string pulling kind of book. My heart broke for Emily and also for Adam. I can totally understand her pain throughout this book. After such a devastating and sudden loss, I am not sure I would be better off than Emily. The writer made you feel her pain and suffering as well as wanting to start living again. Ms. Hoopes really got to the deep heartache and heartbreak for Emily and Adam. Their emotions were raw. But somehow they found the strength to continue on and find a reason to live. I loved the town and it's supporting characters. They were the sweetest trying to protect Emily in their own way. What a great small town to live in where people actually want to know you, care for you, and help. I have read other small town stories before where the people in it were awesome, but this town seemed to be "more." And I feel that added a lot more to like in this story. I sincerely hope we get more from this town. Levi and Piper, to me, both need their own happy ending. This is my first read by Ms. Hoopes, but will not be my last. I received this book in exchange for an honest review from the publisher through Netgalley.

Tragedy caused artist Emily White to move to Fly Creek, Wyoming, three years ago. She’s opened up her own gallery there but kept herself emotionally disconnected from the world until Adam Conley enters her store. He, too, has moved to the area but his motivation is to fulfil his promise to his cousin regarding Emily. She’s totally unaware of his connection to her dead fiancé but both are very aware of the instant attraction between them. As emotional barriers are broken down, will love find a way to help the two of them find romance together or drive them apart forever? Packed with emotion, this story journeys from devastating grief, through love, deception, courage and romance. It involves fighting the past to move on to the future and is written in a way that draws the reader in and makes this such a memorable story. It is the first in a new series, with a brilliant, caring community that I can’t wait to read more about in future, I’ll certainly be looking out for more by this highly talented author and have no hesitation in highly recommending this book. I requested and was given a copy of this book via NetGalley and this is my honest opinion after choosing to read it.

Entangled Publishing’s Bliss imprint is all about sweet romance, family, everyday men and women, and small towns, with caring if not nosey and pushy townspeople. Her Cowboy’s Promise encompasses all that and more. After the heartbreaking death of her fiancé Drew, Emily White left everything she knew including her family and friends to escape the pain. She moved halfway across the country and started over. It’s been three years and she’s only living a shell of a life. She doesn’t socialize outside of greeting and interacting with customers at Painted Glass, her art store. She doesn’t eat out. In fact, she doesn’t go out at all. The townspeople of Fly Creek, Wyoming seem to understand that she has a past and is carrying the weight of the world on her shoulders. They’re happy to sit back and wait for her to come around. Adam Conley managed to escape small town ranch life and never wants to look back. His desire not to be a rancher earned him a finance degree and jobs in New York and Chicago. But he still isn’t happy. His cousin Drew made him promise to look after Emily and to make sure that she’s happy and moves on with her life. It’s this promise to Drew that finds him where he doesn’t want to be, as a ranch hand at Sky Lake Ranch in Fly Creek, Wyoming. For weeks, Adam has been in town, interacting with people to get a feel for Emily. When they finally do meet, sparks fly and neither is prepared. Emily hasn’t felt anything for anyone since Drew’s death. She simply hasn’t wanted to really live. But Adam makes her want to touch a man and step out of her self-imposed exile. Adam wants to fulfill his promise, but he doesn’t know how to handle his sudden feelings for a woman he knows he can’t and shouldn’t have. Together, Emily and Adam set out on a journey of self-discovery, healing, forgiveness, and ultimately love. Her Cowboy’s Promise is a very impressive debut from new author Jennifer Hoopes. This story is heartbreaking at times, so be sure to have tissue handy. But it’s also about healing and moving forward. Surprisingly for me, I didn’t hate the small town, nosey citizens. They actually added to my love of the story. In fact, all the characters are great, from Piper who wants to be Emily’s friend, but is like a steamroller when given the chance; to Shelby, owner of Sky Lake Ranch who’s like a mother hen and grizzly bear rolled in one. Adding to this amazing cast of characters are Levi, Adam’s older brother, Dan, Adam’s friend and another ranch hand and Polly Brooks, Piper’s grandmother. Her Cowboy’s Promise is a definite bookshelf keeper. Jennifer Hoopes has earned her place on my auto-buy author list and I can’t wait to return to Fly Creek. **Received a copy from Entangled Publishing and voluntarily reviewed. I also personally purchased a paperback copy.**

jennifer hoopes' debut novel, her cowboy's promise, runs deep with emotion and the aftermath of grief. adam conley only came to fly creek to fulfill his promise to his cousin. he needs to make sure emily white is done with grieving and back to living a full and happy life. but from the moment their eyes meet, adam realizes that this task will be more difficult than he expected. for one, emily's grief still consumes her. it's been three years and you can still feel the pain and loss that exudes from the inner depths of her spirit. and secondly, when their eyes meet there's a spark. he's supposed to make sure emily has moved on, not fall in love with her. but from the moment their paths tangle it feels inevitable. and adam knows that he will only cause emily more pain when he reveals everything he has been charged with by his cousin, to her. when emily meets adam she's startled to realize that the protective shell she's kept around her is starting to feel too small. since losing dylan she's been afraid to let anyone close, because that kind of loss would be impossible to come back vfrom again. the thing with adam confuses her, but she can't stop herself from seeking him out. it's as if he has the perfect amount of pushiness combined with the best amount of breathing room needed to keep her skittish self on an even keel. there's a lot of emotion in this book, but it's centered on healing: life after loss; love after loss; finding yourself and the right place to call home. falling in love sets both adam and emily free. they can mourn and grieve; love and heal; live and forgive. **her cowboy's promise will publish on july 17, 2017. i received an advance reader copy courtesy of netgally/entangled publishing (bliss) in exchange for my honest review.

This is one hell of a debut novel! I could not put the book down. Even a day later, it's hard to put words to this story. My review won't do it justice, just read the book. It's tender, overflows with sadness yet hope, you watch Emily unfold like a flower under Adam's prodding; breaking through the protective walls she's built to keep herself safe. There are great laughs and lots of down home meddling by the women folk and some bitter memories from Adam. And there is deceit, and some not forthcoming communication that upends mainly Emily but Adam as well. Emily moves to Fly Creek Wyoming from back east after losing the love of her life in a canoeing accident. She was in the boat with him, they had their future planned. She feels as though she failed to save him and still has waking dreams of the incident after 3 years that paralyze her. She's an artist, she opens a gallery, lives in a tiny loft upstairs and keeps to herself. She's totally isolated socially. The towns people accept that, seeing her pain. She meets Adam Conley when he walks in to her gallery one day to pick up a painting she did for Sky Lake Ranch. Adam just got hired on as a ranch hand for the season. He's actually there for another reason, known only to him, to keep a promise he made to his cousin Drew, Emily's fiancé, to make sure she was happy and moved on. Adam has a deadline, he's only there until September and while he's at home on the ranch and his skills are being put to good use, he ran from a small town because of the gossip and same life. Went to college and took a job in NY in finance and business, suit and tie and all of it. He's rocking those boots and jeans though ladies... Adam slowly draws her out, Emily is slow going and is still terrified of water. She finally goes over to the ranch one day and she starts opening herself up to life a little. Still protective, but allowing herself to experience things. Adam still hasn't told her after a period of time and they grow very close.The dialogue gets heavy now and then and both of their inner dialogues and so well written. Adam's brother gets out of the Marines after 14 years and after taking care of some business in their hometown, joins Adam and Sky Lake. Emily finally coming out of her shell, Adam knows he still needs to tell her the truth about Drew, he stalls a little too long and their world implodes. Especially Emily's. Right back into her shell and isolating, she doesn't know yet what's going on, the truth that Adam has come to tell her, so she has little to go on. It's one of those breath holding moments when she finally lets him talk to her. This book is a debut novel. I have to tell you it's so well written, so close to the bone, you'll be moved and pulled in many directions reading this. The plot line was great. The dialogue so real, her pain and grief radiates up off the pages, as does her happiness when she starts to come back into her own. Adam was a peach and despite the fact his cousin pretty much sent him on the impossible task. Truly I wouldn't want to be him. He adores Emily and is torn. You can sense his emotions too, he's so careful with her. Long and the short of it.... read this book. Today. You won't be able to put it down either and end up like me, a tad speechless. Amazing story Jennifer! **arc from NetGalley and Entangled in exchange for a fair review**

Tough review to write. This is a fantastic story. It's well written with very well developed characters. The only thing that kept this from being a 5 star read for me was I thought it focused just a little too much on Emily's grief and guilt rather than the developing relationship between Emily and Adam. After three years it seems to be too all consuming. I have to say this story is a bit heavier than most of the Bliss titles I've read still it's a book worth reading and one I would recommend to everyone.

He teaches her how to breathe. She shows him how to love. Her Cowboy's Promise is a story that screams emotion. From heartbreaking grief, to emotional reawakening, Ms. Hoopes tale is one of courage, devotion and second chances. A tragedy changes the course of two peoples lives, but a promise has the power to heal their broken hearts. I am new to this particular author, however anytime a story lingers on the mind for days on end, it's obvious she made an impression.
