Overview

Take Me, Cowboy by Jane Porter

When Jenny Wright's fiancé leaves her standing at the altar in a Vera Wang bridal gown she can't afford, she's humiliated and heartbroken. To have Marietta hero bull riding champ Colton Thorpe witness her shame – makes the rejection even more devastating.

Jenny and Colton grew up in the same rough neighborhood and they both left home right after school to pursue big dreams. Now they're both back, with Colton as the celebrity chair for the 75th Copper Mountain Rodeo, and Jenny in disgrace.

Sexy, rugged Colton didn't get to be a national champion by chance. He's a man that takes risks and goes after what he wants. During the rodeo weekend, Colton makes it clear he wants Jenny. Flustered but flattered, Jenny finds it difficult to resist his charm. But what happens when the rodeo ends and Colton leaves town? Will she dare to dream again?

A nice quick love story, a great read for a rainy afternoon, a plane ride or a quiet evening at home. Well written, well edited, with two likeable characters who rediscover one another at just the right time. I enjoyed each word and each minute spent with these characters. I will be reading more of the author's books!

This is one of those books I can read several times and it never gets old. In fact i have read it now 4 times. One time when it was released, then before book 2 and 3 in the series came out as a refresher for my old mind and then just last night. Folks who know me in romanceland land know that I love Cowboys and I have a thing for Montana and Marietta in particular. This book is the beginning of the series and it just sets the tone. It just says something to me and hey it's got cowboys. WIN WIN. This book had me from the moment I started reading it until the very end. We have a beautiful bride who not only is being stood for all intents and purposes but also is losing her livelihood as well. Snooty Charles was not worthy.. as the saying goes.That jerk of a fiance, well if only I could backhand the man through the computer he would end up in New Zealand that is for sure. BUT enter Colt the cowboy...the long hidden crush. Sizzle, crackle, pop there is chemistry even as she stands there in her wedding dress. That is when you know this is a book that you can not put down. I like the fact that we get to see these two grow back together in friendship and watch it develop into more. The author shows us their past and how it leads into their future. I invite you take a Chance on Love with this couple.

This is a great addition to the Copper Mountain Rodeo series. This one has Jenny Wright returning to Marietta to marry her boyfriend of three years who is also her boss and from a well to do family. Whilst Jenny has never hidden her less salubrious childhood and family, he uses them as a reason to call off their wedding, suggesting she may be a gold digger. Local man, Colton Thorpe, is returning home to visit when he spots Jenny in her Vera Wang bridal gown, reminding him of a dream princess. They actually grew up near to each other but he doesn't immediately recognise her, unlike Jenny who had a secret crush on him even though he was four years older than her and left the town when she was only fourteen. Their attraction is mutual but their failed relationships make them both initially reluctant to dream of a HEA together - but maybe fate has other plans for them!?! This is a lovely, relatively short, story with a jilted bride and her hot teen crush finding out that romance does exist and is well worth waiting for. It is an easy read, exploring how the past can impact on present day relationships and interactions as well as showing that even when you think things are at their lowest ebb there is always hope for a much happier, love filled, future if only you are prepared to take a chance on love. I just have to comment on how impressed I am with how this author manages to pack so much emotive writing into even a novella, helping the reader experience the feelings and emotions of the characters through her skilled wordcraft. I have enjoyed quite a few books set in Marietta, by a variety of authors, and have to say they are a brilliant series and I have no hesitation in highly recommending this and every one in the set. Thanks to the publishers for gifting me an ARC of this novel, via NetGalley, in exchange for my honest review.

"Take Me, Cowboy" by Jane Porter is book four in the "Copper Mountain Rodeo" series. This is Jenny Wright and Colton Thorpe's story. Jenny is back in Marietta to get married but the groom changes his mind right before the wedding. She flees from the church and Colton is back in town to be the honorary chair at the Copper Mountain Rodeo. The rodeo is celebrating their seventy-fifth anniversary. Colton ends up rescuing Jenny as she flees the church. She has always had a secret crush on him. Colton and Jenny have both experienced hurts from previous relationships. They start spending time together. There is an undeniable attraction and chemistry between them. Will they walk away from this attraction or is it too intense to walk away from? This is an excellent quick read. I love Jane's style of writing. The reader could feel the characters' emotions and visualize the surroundings. This is a flirty, passionate, and heartwarming romance with some steamy scenes! This novella is great for a quick escape. I look forward to reading more books by Jane Porter.

I loved loved this book! Marietta is a town just like my hometown, so it was very familiar and nostalgic. And I love me some cowboy stories!
TraceyReid More than 1 year ago
This was my first Jane Porter book and I really enjoyed it! Even though Jenny has been left at the altar by a self-centered jerk, she has not given up on a happily ever after. She is determined to reclaim her happiness and her life. When a childhood crush, Colton, shows an interest, Jenny jumps at the chance to move on with a good man. These two characters jump off the page, take your hand and pull you right into their story. I couldn't put it down!

I loved this story by Jane Porter. "Take Me, Cowboy" is the fourth book in The Copper Mountain Rodeo Series. It is the story of Jenny & Colton. Jenny was jilted at her wedding by her fiance just moments before the ceremony was supposed to begin. Colton was driving his pick-up truck down the streets of Marietta, Montana and saw a princess bride standing on the street corner. He offers to help her, but she says no, and goes on her way. Later, he comes to her aid when her ex-fiance, Charles, shows up drunk. It doesn't take long for the feelings Jenny had for Colton when they were younger to appear again. He doesn't want to hurt her, but there is a chemistry between them he can't deny.

After being told you she wasn't good enough to marry and them being left at the alter, Jenny decides she is going to spend time just living and enjoying every minute of it. This includes getting up close and personal with bad boy Colton Thorpe, who makes Jenny feel things she never has before. Jane Porter brings us back to Marietta, Montana with a story that is full of emotion and hot cowboy goodness. I've never been disappointed with a story by Jane and Take Me, Cowboy is no exception. I loved Jenny and Colton and definitely recommend it for anyone looking for a great read.

It's Jenny Wright's wedding day.  She's standing in a wedding dress she can't really afford and hours before the vows her fiance slash boss jilts her.  Colt Thorpe, rodeo star extraordinaire, has just come into town when he sees a beauty on a corner in her wedding dress.  He doesn't know her identity and upon learning about the jilting but stops to talk to her even as his mind tells him to not get involved with another woman. (He's recently divorced.) I'm not sure where or how to start describing how amazing this novella is.  While Charles Monmouth was jilting Jenny and telling her why, my chest hurt.  I haven't been jilted before but I felt as if it was happening to me.  I wanted to reach into my computer, backhand Monmouth to get him to stop talking and get Jenny away from him.  I wanted to stop reading but because I wanted to know what was happening next I couldn't.  I was so happy when Jenny realized that she was better off without Charles and a strong person on her own.  I'm so glad she owned up to who she was; past and family included.  I love that Colt was Jenny's childhood crush and that as an adult he was still a bad boy, but one with a heart of gold. I do wish the novella had been longer, but I'm sure we'll see glimpses of them in other stories as we travel to Marietta, Montana.  Jane Porter has once again written another fantastic story you don't want to miss.

This is the fourth book in The Copper Mountain Rodeo Series.    The stories are written by different authors but contain the same characters, although the main character changes with each book. I LOVE Jane Porter and she did not disappoint.     This is a one sitting read.  When I was done I was like WHAT?  That is it??  I want more!   I have to talk about Colton…Oooo La La!  He is the typical bad boy.   The girl all the girls has crushes on and the boy that knows the girls want him.     But he also is a bad boy with a HUGE heart.  He approached Jenny on the street when he sees he upset and doesn’t let up.   Although his heart has been broken and he doesn’t want to let anyone in, I enjoyed watching him open up and let Jenny in a little at a time. Jenny was an entertaining character..  I had a hard time with how she handled being left at the altar and how she accepted Charles’ reason for not being able to get married.    But I loved that her high school crush was the one who rescued her.    I also loved that she stood up for her parents, even when her upbringing was not the best, when their “class” was attacked.  I felt that Jenny was a character that managed to come into her own by the end of her book and  step out of all that was expected of her and instead be what she wanted to be.  I love that this is a series.  Each book can be read alone, but has hints as to happen in the other books.   I highly recommend Jane Porter’s Take Me, Cowboy.  As a matter of fact I highly recommend the whole The Copper Mountain Rodeo series.

As one hundred and fifty guests sat in the church waiting for the ceremony to begin, Charles was informing Jenny that he no longer wanted to go through with the wedding.  Jenny grew up in Marietta and had a difficult childhood.  Charles, on the other hand, came from a rich family in Illinois.  Their worlds couldn’t be more different.  Although he knew that she came from a modest background, now that they were about to get married he was starting to think that she may be marrying him for his money and could no longer go through with the wedding. Colton Thorpe was driving when he saw a beautiful woman in a wedding dress standing at the bus stop.  Sensing that she could use a ride, he pulled over and offered his assistance.  Colton was a few years older than Jenny, grew up on the same street, and had a bad reputation, but Jenny had always had a crush on him.  Recently divorced, he was back in Marietta to chair the 75th Copper Mountain Rodeo.  Although Jenny turned down Colton’s offer to drive her home, it didn’t take long for their paths to cross again.  It also didn’t take long for the feelings that Jenny had for Colton as an adolescent to resurface.  But when Colton makes it known that he wants Jenny just as much as she wants him, will she allow the pain that Charles caused her to affect her future with Colton? Take Me, Cowboy is the fourth book in The Copper Mountain Rodeo Series.  I really enjoyed this book and fell in love with Jenny and Colton’s characters.  There’s just something about the way Jane Porter writes that makes you feel like you are a part of the story.  Take Me, Cowboy is a must read for anyone who loves hunky cowboys, a strong female character and an amazing story!  I definitely recommend this book to everyone!  Although it’s not necessary to read the three previous books in the series to get the story in this book, it is definitely recommended as several of the characters have been introduced in the previous books.  Once again, another amazing book from the very talented, Jane Porter!

Can't say enough about Take Me Cowboy by Jane Porter.  I loved this book and the other books in the Copper Mountain Rodeo series.  I loved the characters especially Jenny and Coltion.  Great character development and dialogue between the characters.  I have read other books by Jane  Porter and enjoyed them.  I would totally recommend this series to anyone who enjoys a good romance.

Take Me, Cowboy was such a pleasure to read. I was hooked on the story from page one. I felt an immediate connection to the heroine Jenny. The novella opens with what is supposed to be the happiest day of her life, her wedding. But things don’t go as planned, and after she is jilted she takes off down the street in her Vera Wang dress. Jenny is rescued rather reluctantly from Colton Thorpe, the town golden boy who is in town for the rodeo. Jenny has been crushing on Colton every since she was a pre-teen and friends with his sister. I don’t like to give spoilers, so I will just say this…….LOVE this story! Jane Porter is an auto buy author for me, but that being said, she always makes me love her work a little more with each book. She has the ability to pack in so much emotion and depth to her characters no matter the length of the book. I seriously could have read another 100 pages about these characters. I did not want it to end.  Take Me, Cowboy is the 4th book in the Copper Mountain Rodeo series. If you haven’t read the 1st 3 books by Megan Crane, Lilian Darcy and CJ Carmicheal, you won’t be lost. But those 2 books are awesome too and I recommend reading them all.

The story of Jenny and Colton took me right in. Jenny was left at the alter by her rich boyfriend, her school days crush Colton, rescues her. This is a short sweet romance but a good story. This is part of the Copper Mountain series, but stand alone books. Loved this story.
CatmomJD More than 1 year ago
This is a classic Jane Porter style romance. The kind I love and always look forward to reading. This story ranks right up there with my other favorites. Dumped right before the wedding, Jenny Wright finds out her fiance thinks she is a gold digger. After running from the church in her beautiful Vera Wang gown, Jenny is crying on the street corner when a familiar face from the past pulls up in his truck to see if she is ok. He doesn't remember her, but she will never forget the bad boy Colton Thorpe. The crush she had for years still ignites a fire inside her. He is freshly out of a bad marriage and doesn't trust women and thinks all they want is his money. He'll settle for a night or two and then move on. He doesn't ever want to get married again. Life on the road, riding bulls in rodeos, is what he wants, and it's not a place for a woman. After spending time with Jenny, Colton might change his mind. But, can they both move past their bad relationships (especially Jenny's being very recent)?

Jenny's been dumped by her fiancée, lost her job, and just about broke, but she's not a gold-digger. She's a self-made woman who came from nothing, but has risen above and tried to do right by her family--always doing for others. Standing on the corner in her wedding gown, a cowboy stops and offers her a ride. Colton is the bad boy cowboy Jenny always had a crush on as a young teen, growing up down the street from him. He never noticed her, and doesn't realize who the jilted bride standing on the corner is, but he can't but want to help her. Having vowed to never marry again, falling in love is not on his list of things to do while in town for the rodeo. Jenny and Colton discover what they thought of each other in the past, and how their lives would turn out in the future is nothing like the fireworks they're experiencing, as they spend more and more time together. What started as lust after heartbreak, turned into love, but can it be the type of love that lasts? Can they find a way to make a life, and a home in the hometown both abandoned? Take Me, Cowboy is the next installment in the Copper Mountain Rodeo series by Montana Born books. It's another winner from acclaimed author Jane Porter!

Take Me, Cowboy was a wonderful story. After being left on her wedding day and then accused of being a gold-digger, Jenny Wright is left to pick up the pieces and move on. Having to face the gossip from the town as well as dealing with her family and friends. Then her school crush, Colton Thorpe, enters the picture. I loved the storyline with this book. The internal emotional struggles both Jenny and Colton have to deal with were intriguing. I didn't want to put it down. I was desperate to get to the end to see how everything worked out and to find out if Colton could see the real Jenny underneath her tough exterior.
