Book review: Hold Me Cowboy by Maisey Yates


HOLD ME COWBOY by Maisey Yates

(Cooper Ridge series) 

Release date: Nov 8, 2016

Hold Me Cowboy is the latest book in the Cooper Ridge series and is Sam McCormack and Madison West’s story. He’s a sexy and gruff cowboy/blacksmith/ artist. He finds Madison a prickly ice princess snob. They’re both damaged, living in hurt and trying to keep people from getting close to them. They have a general irritation and dislike for each other but that gives way to scorching heat and passion. This is not your typical feel good, sweet, romance read. They each have emotional damage from their pasts that they have not been able to let go of it. It starts off as just a weekend of sex, then extended to 12 days with the end to be at Christmas. Their arrangement leads to healing and love. It is set around Christmas time but it is not a heartwarming holiday story. Hold Me Cowboy is well written. Though I didn’t really like the characters or feel a connection for them, I think they were perfect for the type of story that was told. And honestly, not every relationship is built around sweetness and romance. This is the first book by this author for me. I will most likely check out the earlier books in the series as those characters were mentioned in this story and I’m curious about them.

This book will be released November 8, 2016 from Harlequin Desires.

I received a copy from Harlequin via Netgalley for an honest review.


Stranded with a cowboy for Christmas…from New York Times bestselling author Maisey Yates! 

Oil and water have nothing on Sam McCormack and Madison West. The wealthy rancher has never met a haughtier—or more appealing—woman in his life. And when they’re snowed in, he’s forced to admit this ice queen can scorch him with one touch…

Madison had plans for the weekend! Instead she’s stranded with a man who drives her wild. A night of no-strings fun leaves both of them wanting more when they return to Copper Ridge. His proposal: twelve days of hot sex before Christmas! But will it ever be enough?


New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Maisey Yates lives in rural Oregon with her three children and her husband, whose chiseled jaw and arresting features continue to make her swoon. She feels the epic trek she takes several times a day from her office to her coffee maker is a true example of her pioneer spirit.

In 2009, at the age of twenty-three Maisey sold her first book. Since then it’s been a whirlwind of sexy alpha males and happily ever afters, and she wouldn’t have it any other way. Maisey divides her writing time between dark, passionate category romances set just about everywhere on earth and light sexy contemporary romances set practically in her back yard. She believes that she clearly has the best job in the world.
