Madi hasn't had sex in ten years. So, she decided to fix it by renting a cabin with a guy she randomly flirted with. But because of the snowstorm, she is now stuck and needs the help with the cabin neighbor. Sam, the cabin neighbor and Madi's nemesis, decided to help her with her problem. And now they decided that twelve days before Christmas is all they need to get it all out of their system. I actually like this book. I'm not really a fan of the cowboy lead, but it was the only Christmas romance audiobook that was available in the library. So, I tried it. And I was pleased with it. The story is the haters-to-lovers trope, so it has a generic story line. But I like how for a short book, they have good character developments. I also like the back stories of the characters. Very well done, and quite unique. I would say. The steamy scenes are a plus too. I like them. And I love that both characters are consensual about it. Not the lady saying 'no', but the guy still keeps going at it. So I really like that they were both proactive in the story. Pretty good stuff. And it's a quick read. The audiobook is four hours, so if you're not into those long books, an just want to read all day, this book is a good one.

Welcome back to Copper Ridge when you fall in love just as quickly with the town as the characters that Yates develops for her readers. The scene development is vivid and really brings this small town to life. The plot was sizzling hot and a lot of fun, while also emotional and at times shocking. I enjoyed seeing this other side of Maddy and learning about her history. It was shocking yet really allowed me to understand who she was and how she became the person that we've come to know throughout the series. Her hard edges are quite interesting and add so many dimensions to who she is. And the way that she interacted with Sam? (Who's definitely swoon-worthy all on his own in all his damaged cowboy glory). The two of these two were explosive together. This was a fantastic addition to the Copper Ridge series. It adds a lot of background to characters that returning readers have come to know and love and is a great introduction for those new to the series. Please note that I voluntarily reviewed an ARC copy of this novel.

When twelve days of Christmas that was meant to be all fun and games turns into so much more, and that more takes hold of your heart and pulls all these other emotions into the front and center and suddenly you have to deal with life in all its glory and condemnation, yet all you want is someone to hold you... I have been waiting for Sam's story because I had a feeling it would be something emotional - and oh, was it ever. It starts all lively, witty and sexy. The passion is steaming up the windows and nothing is held back. But when the intended weekend turns into the twelve days before Christmas, things get heated in all different kinds of ways. The deeply emotional, shattering, heartbreaking truth that comes to light after Sam and Maddy start to share their deep, dark secrets had me at tears. The raw honesty, the realness of the scenes, the feelings of not being enough and not being accepted, the multiple losses Sam has had to face, the humiliation Maddy had to live with, I felt for them and I mourned for them as the scenes unfolded in front of me like a big movie screen. And it's not just one moment of honesty, the whole second half of the book got under my skin and I still feel the ache I had for both of them. Hold me, Cowboy is an intricate tale where pleasure and pain of life, love, and living dances a wild passionate tango without cutting any sharp curves or taking any brakes. It hit me in the heart and left me in wonder, a marvel of a tale if you dare to let it affect you. ~ Five Spoons

What a fun read! From the first page, I was hooked, feeling empathy for Madison and her ruined plans, and smirking at Sam and his determination to keep Madison at arm’s length – a determination that doesn’t last long. They really steam up the sheets in their first encounter together and both realize very quickly that what they’ve shared isn’t the norm though they aren’t quite sure how to deal with that, other than to admit they want to keep seeing each other. Sam comes across as a sometimes gruff but reserved man, though sparring with Madison reveals him to contain a lot of passion (as does his time with her in bed). He’s a very talented metal sculptor, though he knows that he’s holding himself back from creating the art that calls to him. Keeping himself emotionally contained is something he’s done for so long that Madison brings out feelings in him he’s not prepared for. As for Madison, she is also a quiet and contained individual, for good reason. At the tender age of 17, she was seduced by an older man (her married trainer). Believing he would leave his wife for her, she was instead cruelly rejected when their affair was discovered and became an object of scorn in her town. It’s affected all her relationships, including friendships since, and she’s been a rather lonely woman for a long time. She’s very sensitive to being an object of gossip and wants to keep things with Sam a secret, especially since they don’t have plans to continue their affair after Christmas. Sam is just fine with keeping things a secret, as he too has his own painful history. The story has some really emotional moments, as they both reveal to each other some of the devastating events that happened in their pasts. I loved seeing them go from antagonism to deep affection as they open up to each other. Their connection deepens quickly but so do the doubts about whether they can (or want) to translate what they have into something more permanent. Despite some ups and downs, they do find their way to a delightfully happy ending ( Sam gives good grovel!) and I plan to visit Copper Ridge again very soon.

Maisey is one of my go to sorbet authors and I love her Copper Ridge series, so I was quite eager to get my hands on this. I liked Maddy and Sam well enough. They're both so brash and used to being unchallenged that it was amusing to see them push each other's buttons. And I would have been thrilled if it would have stayed the fluffy little morsel it started out to be... ...but then the drama happened. And there's a lot of it. Of course there's the usual push and pull, but thankfully that all happens in one scene. They both have serious amounts of baggage and I guess I wasn't quite expecting that. Especially with that cover and the synopsis. Overall, it was another piece of the Copper Ridge puzzle. I'll read anything from that series. **Huge thanks to Harlequin Books and NetGalley for providing the arc in exchange for an honest review**
