Review of Her Cowboy Sweetheart by Cathy McDavid

He’s been a good friend

But can he be her sweetheart?

At Sweetheart Ranch, single mom Carly Leighton finds a fresh start, and a friendly neighbor in former bull rider JD Moreno. Neither are looking for love—Carly must think first of her son, Rickie, while JD is recovering from a career-ending balance disorder. But when her former in-laws demand access to Rickie, Carly turns to JD for support and finds he is becoming more than a friend in need…

**My thoughts**
Carly and JD are both new to the Sweetheart and Powell ranches. So if you have followed this series at all, you already know that they are destined to be together, because that's how the Sweetheart Ranch works. But they both come with an awful lot of baggage. Carly left a very abusive husband, who has relinquished all rights to their young son. JD was recently diagnosed with Meniere's disease, which is a rare and chronic disease of the inner ear causing vertigo and can lead to hearing loss. So they both have had to start over in life. Carly is trying to make it as a single mother. JD is trying to come to terms with his diagnosis and finding a way to stay involved with the rodeo life, even though it is too dangerous for him to ride anymore.

The two have become fast friends, and their attraction to each other is undeniable. You want them to become more than friends, because you know they are just meant to be. Each one brings out the best in the other one. But life of course conspires to make things even more difficult, namely Carly former in-laws, who desperately (and rightfully) want to have a relationship with their grandson.

This story reminds us how best friends can make the best partners in life. Family and close friends are extremely important. And listen to those gut instincts. (I always talked about the importance of the Mama Gut when I was teaching.) It also reminds us that you can be strong and learn to trust again. 

I do so love this series and am looking forward to more!

Thank you to the author, publisher, and Prism Book Tours for providing me with a requested review copy. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
