Home for a Cowboy by Amy Aislin Release Blitz

Las doesn’t date seasonal workers. Marco’s on a three-month contract.

Lassiter Windsor-March has been planning for his future for as long as he can remember and he knows exactly where that future lies: at his family’s ranch in Wyoming. What doesn’t lie in his future is a summer fling with one of the seasonal workers—they never stick around.

Even if one of those workers is the college crush he’s invited to work a summer job at the ranch.

Marco Terlizzese is as laissez-faire as Las isn’t. He might not know where he’ll be once his contract with Windsor Ranch is up, but he knows three months is plenty of time to get his long-time crush to agree to go out with him.

Amid a starry summer sky, their chemistry ignites as feelings deepen, forcing Las and Marco to decide where they truly belong.

Home for a Cowboy is about giving love a chance and discovering where you belong.

Tracing the Little Dipper with his eyes, he hugged his arms to himself, chasing off a chilled breeze that snuck under his hoodie despite the fire, and comforted himself with the possibility that maybe Las was at home right now, wherever home was, gazing out his bedroom window, or perhaps lying on his back on top of a sleeping bag next to his tent, blinking up at the same stars as Marco.

And on Marco’s face, a slack jaw, wide eyes, open staring. “How is this real?” His tone was reverent.

“It’s even better at sunset.” Las kept his voice just as soft. “The sun goes down right over there, behind that mountain.” He let a smile curl his lips. “But if we came at sunset we’d be walking back in the dark and I remember a certain someone is afraid of what lurks in the dark.”

Marco did a slow pan toward him. “I don’t know what you’re talking about.”

If Las’s mountains and stars couldn’t convince Marco to stay, he wasn’t sure anything could. Las would keep losing tiny parts of himself to Marco until he didn’t have anything left to give.

It would be worth it. Marco was worth much more than a broken heart.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This book is a love letter to Wyoming and the cowboys who live there. It’s a new adult, coming of age romance and I loved every moment of Las and Marco’s story.

City boy Marco doesn’t quite know what he’s doing when he agrees to spend the summer after college working on Las’ ranch, but he immediately falls in love with life in the Wyoming wilderness. Las might be attracted to Marco, but he refuses to let himself fall for someone who won’t stay in Wyoming beyond a single summer.

I love the way Marco grows into himself in this book. He struggles to meet parental expectations as he falls in love with a life that they won’t understand. I love the way he quietly finds his place in the world and I love the way he and Las come together. Las feels older and more certain in himself, but he is also attempting to carve out a life for himself without dishonouring his family’s ranching tradition.

These boys are sweet and sexy and thoughtful and gentle. The author captures the chemistry between them perfectly and I love the slow build sexual tension in the first half of the book. This story is beautifully written and it made me smile.

This is the first book in a new series, and I shall definitely be looking out for future installments. I loved the world around Windsor and the engaging people we have met so far. I am already hopeful of certain individuals getting their happily ever afters!

Whilst Las and Marco have very different backgrounds, specialisms, and even interests, they are actually very similar in their love of the peace and quiet. We learn this as we see how comfortable Las is on his family ranch, where he intends to live out his days. We also see Marco find himself in the same open Wyoming spaces. The transition for Marco is almost smoother than Las believing that it is even possible for this man he cares about to love the place as much as he does.

The plot cleverly gives them both points of interest to examine, as well as ensuring that they can spend a good amount of time together. Full of little touches which are designed to draw us into the haven they are creating together; I felt, even if I didn't experience, the wonder of the open skies, the joy of watching wildlife in its home. It heightens the senses, so that once they are close, it feels very intimate and incredibly romantic as well as deeply passionate.

The switching between hot and steamy, and then family, work, scenery is intense and makes a desire to keep turning the pages almost impossible to resist!

Now to be patient and wait for book two...
