Omg!!! I loved this story.  Paige and jake along with the Grady family-Ben, his brother who has never acknowledged that Jake has grown up or that his singing is serious, Gabe-his half brother who they are giving him a share of the Grady legacy.  Cissy, his mother who must own up to a huge mistake resulting on Jake agonizing about not being a Grady.  So many twists and turns keep the reader glued to the book-was hard to put down.  I loved the relationship that bloomed between Jake and Paige-the trust, dreams and love they build.  Awesome story!!!  7 stars

I loved it. It was a WONDERFUL pick-me-up as it put a big old goofy sappy smile on my face! You really do need to read the first book in order to get maximum enjoyment out of the second one; however, if it's been a while since you read the first one (like me) or you just like to read out of order, the author does a spectacular job in providing a recap of what happened with Jake and Ben and Gabe in the first book so you have a good idea of what's going on, even if it takes a bit to get there. The setting, as with all of Ms. Braemel's books, is spot-on. It's the tiny attention to detail that really makes you wonder if the author has actually lived in Texas, from the food that is eaten to way the houses are built to the descriptions of the scenery. It's a true Texan cowboy setting without being all "aw, shucks, ma'am" and corny cowboy romance. Paige is by far my favorite part of this book. It has been a long time since I read a book with a strong female lead that I liked as much...where I felt like I would truly like her as a person if I met her. She actually reminds me of a friend of mine with her tipped hair, piercings and stylish clothing, but her ability to meet a challenge head-on and rise above it, no matter what, was amazing and I loved how she knew just the way to handle Jake without creating drama. However, that being said, this is Jake's story. This book starts with Jake and ends with Jake. He goes through a lot during the story in finding out who he is both literally and figuratively and there is a lot that happens between him and the people in his lives. There is so much depth to him and so much love inside him to give to his family and to Paige. It's wonderful to read. The story is full of twists and turns that weave together to create a truly awesome story which will have you tapping your e-reader faster and faster to find out what happens next. The developing relationship between Jake and Paige is really romantic, sweet and HOT. I considered this both erotica and vanilla romance because of the detail that goes into the sex scenes even though it is pretty vanilla sex, but when done right like this one was, there's nothing wrong with a classic vanilla! The bottom line is that this is a great book and if you like Ms. Braemel's writing style and liked Slow Ride Home, you will greatly enjoy this one as well. If you live in Texas, you will love all the little details that are put in that will remind you of all the things that make our great state GREAT. The only thing that I felt was lacking was a little cleaner editing job as I spotted a lot of punctuation and syntax errors, but it's not glaring enough that it's distracting. Two thumbs up, Leah! Great job!

Certain books are able to capture your heart and not let go, and No Accounting for Cowboys was definitely one of those books for me. I knew going into this one that it was going to be very emotional given how the first book, Slow Ride Home, ended for Jake, but boy did it have its own share of surprises too! Jake is a character with quite a lot of hidden depth, and so much love in his heart. I think that Leah did a fantastic job with not only his development, but with Paige's too. He really goes through so much in this book both mentally and emotionally, and I was happy he had Paige's calming influence to help guide him. Paige... now there is one super strong female character that is rarity these days. She has gone through quite a lot in life herself, but she has managed to stay true to who she wants to be despite any mold people want to fit her in. I thought she had an amazing knack for being the calm in Jake's storm, and she just has this quirky personality that is impossible not to love. The chemistry between these two is off the charts good, and boy did they know how to steam it up! Not only was Jake one sexy singing cowboy, but I loved the way that these two were just so cute together and how they complemented each other so well. Overall, I think that NAFC has a great plot with plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing on what is going to happen next. It was romantic, but so very heartwarming too. I think this is the type of romance that will leave you with a smile on your face and tears in your eyes in the very best way. *A review copy was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review*
