Loved the story of Brent and Kendall, a second chance romance. Brent left Marietta four years ago to travel to Australia after his father dies. He has not returned home to take care of his mother. Kendall his first love is still there and she is not going to loose her cowboy again. Kendall has now become a strong woman and knows what she wants. Loved how Brent sent her on dream trip to Europe, to find her happiness. Brent and Kendall soon find out that home is the best. A well written book that I could not put down, I highly recommend everyone take a visit to Marietta Montana. I received this book from Net galley for an honest review.
Kendall and Brent have been separated by circumstances and by his sacrifice. Now he's back home in Marietta and afraid that he'll give into his love and desire for this cowgirl. This is a touching story. I liked these characters. I felt their pain, but I didn't want them to give up on love and a HEA. It was noble of Brent to give Kendall the chance to expand her horizons, but now is the time for him to go after the woman he loves. Good intentions can't take the place of love. Alissa Callen has a wonderful touch for romance. I was pulled in to this emotional story. The setting is perfect. Going back to Marietta is always enjoyable. This is where family and friends love and support you. Kendall and Brent are perfect for each other. I love their intense chemistry and their forever love. Hold Me, Cowboy is a heartwarming story that made me smile.
