Early Review: Falling for the Cowboy, Kennedy Fox

“I didn’t get your name,” he says.

“I didn’t give it to you.” I walk around him, set my plate down on the table, then march back upstairs.

Falling for the Cowboy is the final story in Kennedy Fox’s Bedtime Reads- think of them like quickies. Full length, standalones that are 100% bingeable- read ’em in one sitting.


Blurb:

Never trust a man who wears nothing more than a cowboy hat and ripped jeans who asks if you’d like to save a horse and ride a . . . well, you get the picture. 

That should’ve been enough for me to walk away. 
I’ve been warned on several occasions about southern men—with their sexy accents, charming manners, and the ability to easily get any woman in bed—which is something I’ll be avoiding. 

Being a professional photographer has many perks—traveling around the world, calling all the shots, and working with subject matter that isn’t bad to look at—but Colton Langston with his washboard abs and baby blue eyes, could care less about my current project. He’s trouble, I know it, and he’s
determined to make me work for every single photo.

When I’m forced into riding lessons, I get way more than I ever bargained for, and by the time my trip is over, I’m in too deep. Being with him was thrilling, but falling for him was unpredictable. 
And ignoring him will be impossible.


Cowboy is bittersweet in many ways, while Keeping Him was an end to a Kfox era, (the Bishops) Cowboy is like the cherry on top as we make our way back to the Bishop ranch one last time.

Presley is a photographer first, but ultimately a Bookstagrammer and jesusfuckingchrist, how perfectly meta. Colton works for the Bishops on the ranch, doing cowboy things, and being sexy as fuck, obviously. I don’t know how Brooke and Lyra did it (dragging me kicking and screaming), but I now have a bit of a thing for cowboys. Thanks for that, y’all.

“Watch out for those cowboys though. They’ll rope your heart with one end then tie you up with the other.”

A strict “no sexy times with the guests” and a gorgeous red head with curves that demand you buckle up and hang on make for a hot, tension powered, quick read with a satisfying happily ever after.

“So you’ve never ridden before?” I ask.

“Not a horse,” she quips. Instantly, the thought of her riding me enters my mind, but I try to push it away. I can’t help imagining my fingers digging into her thick hips as she takes me whole. Fuck.

Presley is doing what she wants, living her best life, but Colton throws a horseshoe into the mix, and suddenly she is torn between chasing her dreams and allowing new ones to root- ones that don’t involve her solo adventures around the country/world.

The playfulness between these two makes it impossible not to root for them from the start. When they finally stop fighting the pull they have towards each other, it is sweet and sultry.

She looks up at me and I place my finger under her chin. I know I shouldn’t kiss her, I shouldn’t make a move, but when she licks her lips, I can’t deny the way I feel. I slowly lean in and watch her eyes flutter closed and it’s all the permission I need.

When you learn that Colton is going to be that guy that will support his woman’s dreams, her ambitions, will refuse to hold her back from taking on the world- it is stupid to deny how utterly perfect he is.

I feel like I’m falling for Colton all over again, to be honest.

Falling for the Cowboy is a sweet, fun romance with trademark Kennedy Fox steam that makes you swoon.

Early Review: Falling for the Playboy by Kennedy Fox

I have read every book Kennedy Fox has written, and I will continue to read every book they write. Even if they have baby fever and make so many Harry Potter references it makes me groan (WITH LOVE of course).

42374121

Falling for the Playboy is their newest release (November 15th) and in typical Kennedy Fox fashion, it busted my slump, made me giggle and swoon. The second book in their Bedtime Reads series, standalone, full-length novels that reads fast (think: insta-lust) with plenty of romance, steam, and fun.

“What about the rules?” she asks, sitting back on the bed. Pulling the blankets down, I slip between the sheets. “If you learn one thing before this trip is over, Olivia, it’s that I don’t play by the rules.”

Olivia and Maverick are complete opposites, and of course, this is why they work so well together. Olivia, who is so organized she probably alphabetizes the canned goods in her pantry, and Maverick, who lives with no regrets: Forced together on a road trip, Miss Priss and the Playboy push each other and eventually steam roll down boundaries set up to safe guard their hearts. Both Olivia and Mav (that’s his nickname now, I said so) have a sad story lurking, making it hard for both of them to take that leap- though Mav surrenders first to his feelings and really? It’s fucking adorable, and I was full of fluttery feelings.

I could love her if she’d let me. If she’d tear down her walls and let me inside, I’d give her everything.

Rachel Meadows, Olivia’s employer, is a bitch. But I like her, she provides character growth for Olivia and truthfully? As selfish, and demanding and critical and overbearing (and and and), I low key want to know her story.

I liked seeing Vada and Ethan again (Falling for the Bad Boy), it’s always fun revisiting past characters, even briefly, and I cannot wait for Falling for the Cowboy– the third and final in the Bedtime Reads set.  Why? BECAUSE WE’RE GOING BACK TO THE RANCH- if you’re a regular Kennedy Fox reader, you know where that is. If you have no clue what I am talking about, start hereand you’re welcome.

Olivia Carpenter is my girl, and I’m going to do whatever’s possible to prove it to her.

Final thoughts? I loved Falling for the Playboy. I enjoyed far more than I did Falling for the Bad Boy (which wasn’t bad, I just didn’t connect to the story or the characters as well as I did with Olivia and Mavvy-Mav). One thing to remember? The Bedtime Reads are supposed to be short and sweet, so to speak. So yes, lust and love happens fast, and there is much less drama (if any), there isn’t much for the couple to fight against except their own fears which are typically easily overcome. Basically, as I mentioned, the perfect slump busters. Kennedy Fox has a certain kind of charm to their writing and even when sweet and funny aren’t your style (I admit it, I like to be emotionally and mentally tortured while reading romance)- they still find a way to hook you in, and I ain’t even mad about it.
