Cold Heart, Warm Cowboy by Caitlin Crews
Cold River Ranch Series (Book 2)
St. Martin’s Press (July 30, 2019)
Ty Everett ran off to the rodeo when he turned eighteen and has been riding bulls ever since…until his last fall causes partial amnesia and he must return to Cold River Ranch to figure out what comes next. But how can he pick his next move when he can’t remember how he got here in the first place—much less the beautiful woman who appears at the ranch, claims she knows him, and warms his cold heart for the first time since he woke up in the hospital?
Rodeo Queen Hannah Monroe gave up her crown for Ty Everett, and her innocence. What she wants from Ty now is a divorce. But Ty can’t remember her—or their secret wedding, or even the son she never meant to hide from him—and Hannah is torn. How can she leave the man she can’t forget and still loves despite herself? And even if she’s willing to start over, what will happen when the truth comes out?

Cold Heart, Warm Cowboy is a true cowboy read. Ty is all cowboy, with the swagger, bravado, and complicated feelings. A second chance at romance that had me rooting for this couple. Ty is a bull rider who has taken pride in his bad reputation but is suffering from a lost of 2 years of memories due to a run in with a bull. No one expects much from him and he hides behind his fake smiles and people pleasing ways. Hannah also hides behind her smiles. I absolutely adored how she could turn on her Rodeo Queen personality during confrontations and get her point across. This series is on the three Everett brothers and their very different personalities. They had grown up with a father who pitted them against one another. With their father now deceased, the brother’s relationships with each other is a work in progress and the healing has begun. Wonderful series and am eager to read Brady’s story next.

Head over to Caitlin’s website and read an excerpt from Cold Heart, Warm Cowboy:
The Cold River Ranch Series
Three very different brothers, kept at each other’s throats by their bitter father for most of their lives, are forced to come together after the old man’s funeral to decide the future of the family legacy in the Colorado Rockies, Cold River Ranch.
Little do these tough, hard cowboys know that it isn’t just the ranch they stand to lose… but their hearts.
