The golden cowboy of Wrangler's Creek returns home to Texas to discover some old flames never fizzle…

There are plenty of things Garrett Granger hadn't counted on losing—his child to miscarriage, his wife to another man and the family business thanks to a crooked CFO. He also hadn't counted on moving back to the family ranch, where he's met by another surprise—former flame Nicky Marlow, who is renting his grandmother's old house.

Nicky's been rebuilding her shattered life since her husband's death two years ago. But Garrett's timely arrival in Wrangler's Creek doesn't automatically make him the missing piece of the puzzle. Even if he does seem to adore her two-year-old daughter… Even if seeing him again stirs up old feelings Nicky would gladly keep buried, forcing her to wonder if moving forward has to mean leaving everything behind…

No Getting Over a Cowboy was more of an experience to me than reading a book. I was right there in the middle of the story, observing, feeling and sharing the events that had me smiling, laughing, and even broke my heart a bit. The characters felt like my friends that I was visiting, and I was sad to leave them behind. The whole story is written with such vivid images and invites the reader into the world created by the author, a world of friends, lovers, family, life, love, and heartbreak. But most of all it is a world where you can face your inner demons and troubles, learn from the past experiences, and grow as a human being, to reach your potential. I loved the characters, the whole ensemble of the people from the ranch hands to the widows, the family and friends and town folks. They each have an important role in the development of the story and they carried that responsibility well. Garrett Granger as a hero was drool worthy for sure, handsome, sexy, kind, considerate good guy, who means well even when occasionally stepping on toes of others. He is a complex character who had conquered his past the best he could, he wasn't afraid to show emotions, as clumsy as some of the attempts were. I adored him, simply said. And Nicky Marlow was definitely his soul mate. Nicky had endured so much in her childhood, the memories still haunting her day and night. Her ability to face them step by step and scream on the face of the demons hunting her had me in tears. There's a brilliant metaphorical scene where she and Garrett get the ultimate reward from their battles with the past, where the frame of their pain crumbles down and give them freedom from the pain. This series is getting just better with each unique installment. There are danger and threats, loving and lies, betrayal and secrets, the whole tale resembling life in its caricature way of exaggerated personalities and life events they face. I adored every moment I got to spent with them in that chaotic way of life at the Wrangler's Creek, Texas. I'm looking forward to the next opportunity for a visit! ~ Five Spoons!

Favorite Quotes: ‘Panties in a Bunch ‘Cause Your Car Won’t Start? Use Camel-Tow!’ That’s what was printed on the magnetic sign on the door of the tow truck. ‘I used to diaper both of you boys.’ Garrett hoped like the devil that she didn’t want to do a boxers check to see if she recognized his equipment. Roman had had a bad attitude since birth. According to their mother, when he’d come out breech, he’d immediately kicked the doctor in the balls. Your aunt had h-o-t p-a-n-t-s, and I don’t think Loretta meant they were really short shorts. There’s a really hot cowboy unclogging a toilet... Never thought of that as hot, but he managed to make it look spellbinding. He’s got an audience, too. I think a couple of the women are hoping for a butt-crack showing. My Review: I know I am late in my discovery of her talent, but No Getting Over A Cowboy was my fourth of many more to come Delores Fossen reads. I adored the amusing visuals her clever words generated in my skull. I always enjoy her humorous and witty observations and descriptions, odd characters, and intriguing storylines. Her stories are typically active and eventful with several subplots containing long-buried secrets, humor, intriguing mysteries, adult romance, cute kids, endearingly flawed protagonists, quirky characters with mysterious agendas, and unpredictable and highly satisfying conclusions. I barked aloud several times and frequently wore a smirk on my face as I read this delightfully busy second chance romance with the most eccentric collection of widows the south has ever produced, and that is saying something.

4.5* This is the second book in the Wrangler's Creek series and it's the best of the two. I'd say it's a second chance romance. Garrett Granger and Nicky Marlow had a brief romance seventeen years ago that ended when Garrett meet his ex-wife Meredith. Nicky has come back to Wrangler Creek to heal and to help others heal after the deaths of their spouses by forming a Widows Retreat. The last thing Garrett wants or needs are a bunch of women in his grandfathers run down house especially Nicky Marlow. This new grown up version of Nicky Marlow and her three year old daughter Kaylee. Who brings up the ever present memories of his grief over his lost daughter. This book is full of laughs, very quirky people, sadness and heartache with a twist of suspense. I loved all the characters and the story line. The author did a great job with Kaylee. I loved her spunk and imagination. I can't wait for Roman's book. *Book Obsessed Chicks Review team

Yet another winner when it comes to writing style, plot, and excitement. I have loved everything that Miss Fossen has written and this is no exception. This book incorporates many characters from her other novels, such as Cassie, and it makes it stand out as an exceptional story. Garrett Granger has had a tough life. First with his father, and then losing his daughter, and then having his wife cheat on him. Now back on the ranch working with his family he has been working hard to make it grow even more then it already is. But now, when he is finally making things prosper and is moving on with his future plans everything changes in a moment. The moment when he runs into an old acquaintance, an old friend, an old flame, and the one women he deflowered then left for his wife. Nicky Marlow has had a tough life as well. First with her father, then her cheating husband, and then having to raise her daughter of her own. Now she is finally getting on with her life and her own emotional healing. The first step is opening the widow house. A home for the widows in her support group, a place where they can all heal together and hopefully find happiness along the way. The only downside to this great idea of hers? It is on the land of a man who took her virginity and then broke up with her a month later. This was an excellent read with numerous secrets that in a normal book would be rushed to get out. And yet Ms Fossen managed to extract all of the secrets from her wonderful characters without making it feel rushed. This was a read you will not want to miss out on. That I can definitely promise you. Disclaimer: There is sex in this book, as well as some hilarious characters with completely different personalities. ~ A Book Obsessed Chicks Review Team Selection.

Garrett Granger was all set to expand the pond near his great-grandfather’s house, acquire more cattle, when word comes that some women, widows, have invaded the dilapidated house. And the widow in charge is none other that Nicky Marlow, whom Garrett dated all but one month eighteen years ago, back in high school. Garrett had dumped Nicky for Meredith, who became his wife, now ex-wife. Nicky also has her little daughter Kaylee along, which aggravates Garrett’s feeling of loss; he lost his daughter. Nicky says she’s not moving from what will be The Widows’ House, Garrett says she’ll stay there over his dead body. Well, not really, however there is literally a skeleton in the closet! There’s no getting around it: NO GETTING OVER A COWBOY is a fantastic book! Delores Fossen pulls all the stops: there is a lot of drama, much comedy, quite a bit of mystery, a wonderful romance, and even a burgeoning second romance! Ms. Fossen has such a way with words that I don’t believe I will ever forget the jaw-dropping description of the ancient, garish Granger house. Garrett is still heartbroken over his failed marriage, he’s rather cynical, but Nicky doesn’t need any more worries and heartache than she already has, and she intends to open her refuge for widows whether Garrett likes it or not; he’s not the only one making decisions. But both Garrett and Nicky have secrets, and they’re not the only ones! There are many characters in NO GETTING OVER A COWBOY, and Ms. Fossen has everyone fully fleshed out, a lot of them are truly memorable, and even if nothing much happened, those extraordinary characters would have made this book worth reading: the Ellery sisters, and the drop-dead gorgeous, utterly irresistible, single dad bad boy Roman Granger, Garrett’s brother, whose story I am dying to read! The story is very complex, and as multifaceted and colourful as a kaleidoscope: there is absolute mayhem, side-splitting humour, a sexy-sweet romance, and a great suspense: I hung onto Ms. Fossen’s every word! I'm not usually crazy about children in romances, but little Kaylee was just perfect, she stole my heart! NO GETTING OVER A COWBOY hits all the right spots, and the super talented Delores Fossen has outdone herself big time with this book, and that is saying a heck of a lot! Absolutely fabulous from the first page to the last! ~A Book Obsessed Chicks Review Team Selection
