Almost a Cowboy by Em Petrova Blog Blitz

Utah Davies is a recluse by choice, shunning his family and denying the ranch that needs his care. His personal life is a broken fence-line of past failures, neglected relationships, and The One that got away. After his father’s death, Utah is summoned home and faced with a secret in the form of a dozen or so more siblings he—and the family—had no idea existed. A clause in the will states he must find the family scattered across the country and unite them all for the reading. Trouble is, he has no clue where to begin.

Until he comes face-to-face with the old flame that burned his heart to ash.

In the July of their love, journalist Caroline Wilks refused elopement with Utah. After that, she made a series of bad decisions starting—then ending—with a nightmare marriage to a drunk. But when hunky bad-boy Utah struts back into her life, the only peace from the soul-deep throb she’ll get is between him and a mattress. He refuses to believe she’s nothing more than a hard-nosed journalist known for digging up more dirt than the family coon dog, but she knows better—or does she? And how can Caroline take the time to help Utah find his scattered family when she has a feature story due by the end of the month? Maybe the human interest piece is standing right in front of her in the dark, brooding cowboy.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

Almost a Cowboy is an excellent read. There is so much passion in this book (with plenty of steamy scenes) but it's also a great story. I loved travelling from State to State with Utah to meet his siblings for the first time. Utah's struggle with what his father had done and the reactions of the brothers and sisters as they also come to grips with their father's actions was fascinating.

The relationship between Utah and Caroline is melt your knickers hot but also a little up and down as they each struggle with their own issues and because the story is written from the point of view of each of them, we get to experience the relationship from both sides.

I recommend Almost a Cowboy. It is an original, well written story which I really enjoyed.

Ms. Petrova has a talent for using an unusual event to tell a wonderful story. She does not shy away from the unconventional, and gives the reader pause for thought. This novel certainly does that. It deals the sins of the father being visited upon the son and the opportunity presented by a once lost love returning to his side. Both stories combine in a most satisfying way to entertain and seduce the senses. The love and passion blaze a trail across the page, baiting the reader into wanting a happy resolution.

This author has made it onto my 'Must Read' list, which doesn't happen easily, but is most definitely deserved.


 Em Petrova lives in backwoods Pennsylvania, where she raises four kids and a Labradoodle puppy named Daisy Hasselhoff and pays too damn much for utilities. She loves to write gritty characters with lots of heart and is well-known for scorching, panty-soaking erotic romance.
