Not My First Rodeo 2 Boxed Set by Donna Alward, Jenna Bayley-Burke, Sarah M. Anderson

In Donna Alward’s Seducing the Sheriff, Cassidy’s first foray into online dating is an unqualified disaster. Witness to a bank robbery, she’s now in danger. Sexy sheriff Joe Lawson is willing do whatever it takes to protect her, even if that means hiding her away in his secluded mountain cabin.

In Roping the Rancher by Sarah M. Anderson, all Tommy knows is girls his own age don’t do it for him. Carly has no interest in being anyone’s cougar, but when Tommy says he’ll do whatever she tells him to, she can’t resist the chance to take what she wants from a man with no strings attached. But no one said anything about scarves...

In Jenna Bayley-Burke’s Captivating the Cowboy, aspiring designer Jules is about to head to New York. Before she leaves, she’s going to help widower Slade Weston find the perfect ranch wife, but finding his forever turns into schmexytimes. Jules doesn’t want to be a wife and mom, and Slade isn’t moving across the country. It’s just a fling, until she’s not sure where she truly belongs.

4.5 stars I always find rating anthologies difficult. It's like buying a cd of music. You might love some, but others maybe not so much. All three stories in this anthology were good but I found Roping the Cowboy the most emotionally satisfying. They are all linked through the dating site which is for people who have been married or in a permanent previous relationship. The first story, Seducing the Sheriff, by Donna Alward, is fairly lighthearted. Cassidy is not sure if she's ready to date again after her first marriage but she has put her profile up on the site. In the meantime, at the eating place she works at, she witnesses Sheriff Joe Lawson's date with a setup by his sister totally crash and burn. When she is present during a bank hold up, she recognises the bad guy from the dating site. So of course she needs protection and Joe is her man...or at least he will be. A nice little story, a little warmer than Alward's usual stories. The second story, Captivating the Cowboy by Jenna Bayley-Burke, starts out with a lot of similarities to the first one. Jules works at her uncles restaurant and for the past few months she's been watching Slade Weston come in with a different date every Friday night. Everyone knows he's ready to find a new wife and mother for his two children after losing his first wife a couple of years ago. Jules is ready to leave town. She has big dreams of becoming a fashion designer in New York. But she likes Slade and is quite prepared for a fling before she leaves town. We can all guess how that is likely to go. This was a nice story but it was a bit big for a novella. There was a lot of family time and a couple of things that didn't get resolved that would have strengthened the story. I kept feeling like it was part of a series and wondering when we would get another characters story. I think the couple getting married in this one were in the first anthology which I haven't read yet. Roping the Cowboy was my favourite of the three. When it started out, I wasn't sure. Tommy is only twenty two and a bit of a manwhore but once we get to know him, I liked him a lot. Carly, like the other heroine's in this anthology, works in the restaurant he brings his dates. He's not eligible for but his father's romance in the first anthology was through the website. Carly is eligible, being a divorcee in her thirties and assistant manager of the restaurant. An unlikely pairing at first the romance was really sweet and emotional. I got a little misty at one point. Overall, a nice selection of warmish novellas. If you like cowboys and real life heroes and heroines and a warmish heat rating you will enjoy this. I requested this ARC from netgalley for an independent review.

I have enjoyed this novella boxed set. Seducing the Sheriff: This was a very good and beautifully written story for Joe and Cassidy. If you love strong protective men with a heart of gold, then you will love Joe. He was so gentle, tender, sweet to Cassidy - definitely heartmelting and swoon worthy. Cassidy is trying to be strong and rebuild her life. The connection she had with Joe was so special. I loved their interactions. They just had a genuine connection and was comfortable. This novella had quite the punch with their love story. Captivating the Cowboy: This was a fun quirky story. First off, I love the name Slade, it fits a strong, tough cowboy perfectly. Jules and Slade were a fun couple with their no strings and seriously hot scenes. But what I loved were Jules' scenes with April. They were very heartwarming and sweet. I loved Jules and Slade's connection and how strong it grew quickly. This was my favorite novella of the set. Roping the Rancher: This novella packs the heat for sure. Tommy and Carly really fire up the pages. This is probably the fastest paced story in the set. But it covers quite a bit of emotions and topics. I loved how gentle and understanding Tommy was with Carly. He was very mature for his young age. He just made the story for me. Carly was a great lady determined to be independent and not need anyone else to help her. She was strong, but vulnerable in her personal life. And when you find out why, it makes you like Tommy all the more. I received this book in exchange for an honest review from the publisher through Netgalley.

A great compilation of stories each involving a dating site and addressing how difficult it is to meet that special someone when life gets hectic. Each of these authors put there own special spin on the theme and we end up with 3 great stories to entertain us. I definitely recommend this one! Seducing the Sheriff by Donna Alward - If witnessing a bank robbery isn't proof that dating just doesn't work for Cassidy doesn't know what does. Now being protected by the very sexy sheriff - that might just work out fine! A little humor, a little suspense makes this a good read. Roping the Rancher by Sarah M. Anderson - A great story that proves the heart wants what the heart wants and age differences shouldn't matter. Carly's no cougar but when the much younger Tommy keeps coming around it gets harder and harder to resist him. Captivating the Cowboy by Jenna Bayley-Burke - For the last ten months Slade Weston has been on one bad first date after another. After losing his wife more than two years ago he's ready to move on with his life. Running a ranch and raising two small children doesn't leave a lot of time for dating so he signs up with to help him along. Strangely though none of the women the site sets him up with have any appeal. Not like the sassy charismatic waitress at the local diner!

Fantabulous!!!! What an amazing collection of stories!! Fans and ice water required. Ladies these are over the top; hot, sexy cowboys, strong women and the story of how they each come to meet. All based on a little web site called Not My First Rodeo. (NMFR) They're stand alone stories, the common denominator is the web site and the characters are either divorced, widowed or "it's complicated" And they are cowboys and hot damn these women have written the hottest stories and the perfect cowboy, I can't say enough about them. My problem is I can't decide if I like Sheriff Joe more than Slade, they both had their own attributes. I'll leave it at that. This book deserves a huge shower of stars and I want more! I want more of these wonderful little stories that keep you glued to the pages and enthralled right in with the characters. Sigh. Love. I just loved it. Applause all around for Donna, Jenna and Sarah!! **arc from NetGalley and Entangled in exchange for a fair review**

Seducing the Sheriff by Donna Alward 4* I first read this story last June and I enjoyed re-reading it. It is an entertaining story, which kept me hooked (despite having read it before) with a HFN ending. Would have preferred a HEA ending which could perhaps have been achieved with an epilogue several years down the road. Captivating the Cowboy by Jenna Bayley-Burke 5* Jules can't wait to shake off the dust of the small town she lives in and return to her home town of New York where she plans to study design. However hooking up with a sexy Western brother weeks before she is due to leave is not one of her better ideas. A sexy read. Highly recommended. Again an epilogue would have been a nice bonus. Roping the Rancher by Sarah M. Anderson 4* Carly is 37 whilst Tommy is 22. I am not a fan of large age differences, particularly the cougar scenario. Personally I couldn't bear to be with anyone that other people would think was my son or my parent. I would think that Carly would be forever trying to look, act, dress young and fear that he would leave her for a younger model. Having said that, the story line was both interesting and sexy. I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley I was not compensated for my review, and I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own.

Never has a compilation come along that varies in ideas but is so obviously meant to end up together. Donna Alward, Jenna Bayley Burke and Sarah M. Anderson embrace the power of what it means to be a woman with these tempting stories of danger, risky behavior and heartwarming humor. Cassidy gets more than she bargained for in Seducing the Sheriff. From online dating to in need of protection, never would she have suspected that she'd find a love match along the way. Donna Alward brings the funny but combines a hint of danger with her always captivating and heartwarming formula. With Roping the Rancher, Sarah Anderson seduces her readers with her tale of an older woman and a younger man. A little taboo, but a whole lot of sexy. Carly releases her inner vixen and finds out what happiness means. Captivating the Cowboy by Jenna Bayley Burke - Jules has big dreams that do not include letting rancher, Slade tie her down. Will the heart win out over the ambition? A simple story of how powerful an emotional love can be.

LOVED this collection of books! Each is a stand alone story the length of a novella or short novel, so they're meaty enough to have a substantial story within them. I felt invested in the characters and wanting them to have a HEA. While I loved all the stories, the first one, Seducing the Sheriff, was my favorite. I loved how the characters were thrown together and how they interacted. I was sorry when it ended and would love to see the characters continued in a future book. Fans of the genre will love this book. Put this at the top of your TBR as it's a must read for this summer.
