Poppy Sinclair has been in love with Isaiah Grayson for a decade. He hired her as his personal assistant at the urging of his then fiance, and she's still with him even though the fiance isn't. Isaiah has never seen Poppy as a possible girlfriend, but asking her to interview possible brides for him is the last straw. He doesn't see the problem, but each blonde bombshell who applies is yet another stab to her heart. When she throws her resignation on his desk, he knows there is a problem now. How can he possibly find another assistant to make his life run as smoothly as Poppy did? Isaiah Grayson doesn't see the world like other people do. For him, everything is black and white, and ordered numbers. Emotions are for other people, so when Poppy quits rather than continue interviewing brides for him, he is genuinely baffled. When she finally tells him why she quit, everything he knew about her is flipped upside down, and he finally sees her as the beautiful, sexy woman she is. Can Isaiah convince Poppy to marry him, even though he doesn't love her? Yes, he cares for her, and respects her, but he gave his heart away once, and doesn't think he has it in him to do it again. He'll even resort to blackmail, if that will get him his bride, but can Poppy settle for less than everything? I liked this story. Poppy spent most of her life in foster care and went directly from that to working for Isaiah. At first, she simply loved that he took a chance on an 18-year-old, then she fell for the man. Isaiah, for his part, is clueless. He doesn't see that Poppy dies a little every time he dates a woman so completely opposite to herself, and he believes that choosing a bride is something she should be able to do for him. Who knows him better than she does? Readers who love a boss/assistant romance, or a multi-ethnic romance, or just a romance that sizzles, will like Want Me, Cowboy. I received this book free from the publisher, but the opinions here are all mine!

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Isaiah and Poppy’s story in Want Me, Cowboy by Maisey Yates, part of her Copper Ridge series. Isaiah is not an easy man to get along with. One might say he could have been on the spectrum. For the past decade, Poppy worked and kept her feelings for him secret. When Isaiah decides he needs a wife he enlists Poppy to find one for him. After interviewing applicants that would never qualify or get along with Isaiah, Poppy decides to quit. Especially since she could not stand by and watch him marry another. With the threat of losing Poppy real, Isaiah offers her an intriguing proposal, why not marry him. She could tolerate this frustrating man and ran his life as it was. The problem Poppy foresaw was whether or not she could share his life and bed, but not his heart or receive his love. Poppy struggled with lying to his family; maybe it was because she was a foster child with no real family. I was not surprised that Isaiah’s family welcomed Poppy with open arms, accepting her and believing that Isaiah really loved her. Poppy was also quite innocent which surprised Isaiah but at the same time brought out his inner caveman. Poppy needed to be accepted and loved by Isaiah before she could be happy and create a family with him. Feelings and love were foreign ideas to Isaiah, part of his being on the spectrum, and he recognized that he needed to come to terms with this before he could love Poppy as she deserved. Ms. Yates wrote a wonderfully emotional and moving story filled with sexual chemistry, fun dialogue, and endearing characters that is not to be missed. I highly recommend Want Me, Cowboy to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

Want Me, Cowboy floored me in the best possible way and I wanted to start reading it AGAIN right after I finished it. Poppy and Isaiah, as characters, were endearing and lovable, with their smarts, intelligence, and ability to shine within their professions they impressed me, but it was the brokenness, the vulnerabilities, and aches in their souls, the fear of losing control and getting hurt, that made both of them so attractive, so appealing, so easy to relate to. They have known each other for ten years, they have worked closely together, they were colleagues and friends, but there were possibilities to so much more if they dared, if they found the courage, if they took the leap, and just jumped into the unknown, still holding on to each other tightly. The journey they take on the pages of this book is an inner struggle they have to win. The ardent passion they feel for each other surprises them, confuses them, until it takes over them. I admired and adored that Isaiah wasn't the perfect male, who has everything under control. I loved that his social awkwardness was part of the story, his difficulties not only to deal with people but to communicate with them just made him even more lovable to me. Poppy's life hasn't been easy either, going from foster home to another, her life had turned up to be a challenge of trust, knowing everything could be wiped away tomorrow without explanation. Together, these two didn't only heat up the pages into an inferno, they taught valuable life lessons while they grew as people and as a couple, as friends, partners, and lovers throughout the story. I love this series more than most, and this addition, that can easily to be read as a standalone novel, is just so perfectly done, an unputdownable experience filled with love and passion, that I consider it a must read! ~ FIve Spoons!

I don’t think I even read the synopsis of a Maisey Yates book any more. I just see her name and I’m in. I really liked Poppy and Isaiah. She’s sassy and he’s gruff and in their working together for 10 years, have forged a friendship. Oh, and their chemistry? It’s off the charts. There were a few scenes with the family, but this is mostly all Poppy and Isaiah. Plot wise, it was good. The shortened story didn’t feel rushed and the bursts of drama were quickly resolved. I really enjoyed reading these two navigate their issues and find their happiness. Overall, it was a quick read with characters I really enjoyed. I am eager to see who gets a story next. **Huge thanks to Harlequin Desire for providing the arc free of charge**

A sweet and steamy romance about two halves finding their whole! Want Me, Cowboy was such a fun read. Even when I was shaking my head at Isaiah's obtuseness (90% of the time) or when I wanted to smack him upside the head (50% of the time), I was rooting for him and Poppy to somehow figure out how to be together. Yes, it would have been nice if things could have gone easier for her here--but if things had gone more smoothly, then she wouldn't have been with Isaiah. (It isn't explicitly mentioned, but given his particular social/interpersonal issues I'm guessing he's somewhere on the autism spectrum. Fortunately for him, he's got a family and at least one friend--Poppy--who accept him and love him as he is, even when he's behaving in ways that seem counter to keeping people close to him.) Poppy wasn't without her own issues either, though, and I loved that she owned up to them and did what she could to counter all of her instincts that were telling her to bail on their relationship once and for all. Though their black moment felt pretty bleak, they both put in the effort needed to come back together with a very satisfying resolution. And that epilogue? Simply wonderful. I can't wait to come back to Copper Ridge for another visit--who's next? ;) Rating: 4 stars / A- I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

3.5 Stars! WANT ME, COWBOY by Maisey Yates, is the fifth book from her COPPER RIDGE series. Although I was able to enjoy this story as a standalone, I definitely plan on reading the earlier books in this series. The secondary characters have a lot of personality, and I would like to learn more about them. The cover is pretty, and it perfectly depicts the couple’s relationship at the end of the book. Personal assistant Poppy Sinclair has worked for rancher and businessman Isaiah Grayson for ten years. She has also been in love with him for ten years. So when Isaiah decides to settle down, he asks Poppy to find him a wife. After interviewing potential candidates, Poppy kind of freaks out and quits, which results in Isaiah offering her the opportunity to marry him. Isaiah believes he is not capable of love or emotion, so a marriage with companionship, sex, and babies is all he can offer. Poppy wants love and family in her life, since growing up in the foster care system provided nothing but heartache. This is a very interesting romance, although slightly repetitive at times. Isaiah is good with numbers and is only able view the world in black and white. Love and emotions are a gray area, which he really has a difficult time navigating. Poppy understands Isaiah’s shortcomings and is able to help him fill in the emotional gaps he is missing. Their sexy times are hot, due to Isaiah’s dominance and Poppy’s innocence. Overall, a solid read. LJT for RJ

From the moment that Poppy Sinclair met Isaiah Grayson her whole world shifted, one look from him and her heart hit overdrive... but unfortunately for her the instant sparks weren't returned. She has spent the last ten years of her life pining after him, working alongside him day in and out, and wishing that one day he could be the keeper of her heart. But that little hope has just been dashed because he has decided he wants to get married, and it's her job to help him find a bride! Want Me, Cowboy comes brimming with heart and heat! The moment you delve between the pages of this one the temperature will start to rise and your heart will feel a squeeze. I really enjoyed my time with these characters, the chemistry between them was palpable, at times you could feel the sparks radiating from the pages. I must admit though Isaiah really challenged me, I had a hard time finding attachment to him at first, he was so stubborn. But I held out hope that he would come around, and without giving too much away I will say he redeemed himself... just have patience. Want Me, Cowboy is a short, sweet, and highly satisfying story, highly recommend!

It's always a treat to read a western romance by Maisey Yates. Want Me, Cowboy is no exception. In fact, I enjoyed it more thoroughly than any other book I've read from Maisey Yates because it features an interracial romance! I was so excited when I saw the cover, reading the story was the icing on the cake! I loved the dynamic of Isaiah and Poppy. The years of their long friendship shows in the way they work together and know how to read each others' moods. That's what makes this story so captivating, because as well as they know each other they still get it wrong. It's endearing and heart-wrenching at the same time because you want to see them find their way to each other, but they let overthinking get in the way of possibly finding true happiness. The story moves quickly but I didn't feel as though anything was left out. Maisey Yates hit all the right marks for a full, enjoyable romance: drama, introspective musing, explosive confrontations, and tender moments. Cooper Ridge fans will love this addition to the series! Want Me, Cowboy encompasses the everything you'd expect from a Harlequin Desire title. Family, secret desires, and in this case a smoking hot, wealthy cowboy! *ARC provided in consideration for review*

Great connection! She's feisty, he's grumpy and set in his ways, but together they somehow work really well! We didn't get quite as deep into this Copper Ridge story as we usually do when they are a longer book, but I really enjoyed the characters. I hope to see more of them in future books. Poppy Sinclair has been secretly in love with her surly boss for the decade she's worked for him, but a riddled past has kept her from making it obvious. She can't hold her temper now though when he's demanding she interview women to make him the perfect cookie cutter wife! Isaiah Grayson isn't sure why Poppy is so mad at him, but if she's going to threaten to walk out on him, he's got to figure out a way to make her happy enough to stay. She doesn't like interviewing wife candidates? Then maybe she should step up and offer to be one herself!
