Cowboy, Take Me Away, Kathleen Eagle

Her camera didn’t lie.

When photographer Skyler Quinn first fixed her lens on gorgeous cowboy Trace Wolf Track, she liked what she saw but didn’t give it much thought. Until everywhere she went—the rodeo, the Double D Wild Horse Sanctuary— there he was, and the heat between them built to the boiling point.

As a widow struggling with debts and loyalties from a former life, Skyler needed to stay focused, especially if she wanted to achieve her dream of becoming a mother. Was Trace a fatal distraction, a mere summer fling? Or did this younger man—so deep, so passionate—hold the key to a future that would make all her dreams come true?

The Review:

“He knew who she was, but not really. He remembered how they’d come to this moment, but not really.

That in itself explains this book. Sometimes you know what you have, but not really. You know how you got there, but not really. But you know you belong there. Kathleen Eagle is smooth and subtle in unraveling a story of two people who for once take the wild card, and find that their hearts were already working and way ahead of them.

The bold and direct writing is left in the dialogue, as Skyler and Trace battle words full of wit and flirt. Much of which leave the imagination reeling, since there is a clever double meaning behind everything they say. Stuff that will have readers giggling like a school girl in one breath, and barking out in laughter in the next. These characters mesh well, they enjoy each other and therefore the story is enjoyable.

The story does lack one thing for me, and that is rodeo tension. I hope to see more cowboy related stories by this author, but I hope next time the action scenes—those eight seconds—are drawn out to the max, of course this is no reason not to miss out on this sweet romance.

If you are a reader who wants some angst and heartbreak, this isn’t the book for you. This book is cute, fun, and all about taking that wild chance,  and letting instinct take it’s course.

Two words: Cowboy up.

  1. I almost got this book too from Netgalley. I do love this author. She writes a great cowboy, doesn’t she?

    Great review

  2. Yeah. I really liked Trace, a lot. Kari has suggested some other books by Eagle. I’m buying them this week. I’m excited to read more of her.
