Cowboy Strong by Carolyn Brown


A rugged Texas cowboy and the girl next door find a fake engagement feeling all too real in this heartwarming romance from a USA Today bestseller.

Alana Carey can out-rope, out-ride, and challenge even the best Texas cowboy. But she does have one soft spot – and his name is Paxton Callahan. With Pax back in town, Alana's old feelings have returned with a vengeance. But she barely has time to process her attraction for the hunky cowboy before her father falls ill. All he wants is for her to marry and settle down before he passes away, and Alana isn't about to break a dying man's heart.

Paxton Callahan has been in love with Alana since... forever. Now that he's living right next door, the electricity between them is about to set the whole Texas panhandle on fire. When Alana presents him with a crazy proposal – to pretend to be her fiancé so her father can die in peace – Paxton can't refuse. But as the faux-wedding day draws near, Alana and Paxton must decide whether to come clean about their charade or finally admit their love is the real deal.

Includes the bonus novella Sunrise Ranch for the first time in print!

This story had a lot of potential. Alana and Pax had a history and while you don't really know what happened when they were younger, you can see that they have a genuine friendship that could be a lot more.

It was frustrating to watch them fight their attraction for most of the book. Then, when you incorporated the cancer, unknown relative, and unplanned life circumstances, you were just kind of given a miss-mash of things. I really wanted to like this story, because I love a good friends-to-lovers story. Probably if they had not fought their feelings for 80% of the book, it would have been more successful.
