"Cowboy Delight" [Cowboy Heaven Series, Book 0.5] by Cheryl Brooks (aka Samantha R. Michaels)
Authors' Book Description : Stranded on a Texas highway while traveling to meet her fiancé’s parents, beautiful pharmaceutical sales rep Lauren Allen accepts a ride from handsome widower Steve Williams. When stormy weather forces them to spend the night at his ranch, sexual attraction ignites, and Lauren becomes convinced she is engaged to the wrong man.
My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars. Lauren is driving through Texas (by herself) on her way to meet her future-in-laws when her car breaks down. From that point on one calamity or another gets in the way of Lauren getting to her destination. During that time, Lauren meets Steven, which makes her question what she truly wants for her own future.
I wasn't disappointed with this novel but I didn't love it either. For one, while I enjoyed the quickly growing relationship between Steven & Lauren, along with their many erotic scenes, it was hard to get around the fact that she was cheating on her fiancé, even if she felt that her fiancé was a bad choice for her. Second, while I understand it is a novella and I expected it to be short, I found the ending to be too rushed and full of things that didn't completely matter. Nevertheless, overall, I found it kinda cute.
I would recommend it only to those who are fans of Ms. Brooks or like reading strong erotic romances!

“That’s just a coincidence. I bet he’d be haulin’ ass down here if he knew you needed him. Aside from that, you could’ve gotten a ride to Houston with any of those guys in the diner.”
“Yeah, right,” I snorted. “A ride and what else? No, thank you. I don’t need that kind of help.”
A frown furrowed his brow as he aimed his startling blue eyes in my direction. “Then why did you agree to ride with me? I’m no different from the rest of them.”
I had to swallow before I could answer. Drooling over a man can be inconvenient at times. “Kate didn’t seem to think so. In fact, she vouched for your character in glowing terms.”
I hadn’t seen a man blush since high school.
Avoiding my gaze, he checked his side mirror. “Yeah, well, don’t believe everything you hear. You never know what it’ll take to make a guy snap.”
“Snap?” I chuckled. “Are you that irritated with me already?”
“Irritated isn’t the word I would choose.” He stared at the road ahead, practically growling out the words. ~ within Chapter 2
