One Good Cowboy by Catherine Mann

One Good Cowboy (Diamonds in the Rough #1)
by Catherine Mann

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Age category: Adult

From Ex to Eternity?

To inherit his family's empire, Texas cowboy-turned-CEO Stone McNair must prove he has a heart beneath his ruthlessly suave exterior. His trial? Finding homes for his grandmother's rescue dogs. His judge? Johanna Fletcher, the woman whose heart he broke.

Sure, Johanna can handle a week traveling the country with her ex-fiancÈ to fulfilll his dying grandmother's request. She and Stone want different thingsóplain and simple. But there's nothing plain about Stone, or simple about the heat that still flares between them. One week may not be long enough.
My Thoughts:

At the beginning of One Good Cowboy, we come to find out that his grandmother is dying and she has decided to task each of her grandchildren to see if they are up to the task of taking over. Stone is the first to face his trial. Now he has to find homes for his grandmother's beloved dogs. Easy peasy. Wrong! Oh no, his grandmother has lined up potential clients, but he has to meet them and drag his ex-fianceé, Johanna, with him. Basically, this is a matchmaking scheme his grandmother concocted.

Johanna broke things off with Stone, because she didn't feel adequate with his lifestyle. However, we find out that she never inform him. Of course, there were other issues in the relationship that neither one felt the need to share with one another. During this adventure, they start to learn things about one another. Thoughts of reconciliation start to bubble.

I enjoyed One Good Cowboy. I love how the dogs played a roll in the story. When they about to deliver each dog to the potential new owner, Stone shared a little bit about their history. Which open doors to rekindling the relationship between Stone and Johanna. At certain points of the story, I felt bad for Stone, because he always viewed himself the boy who "no one wanted him." Of course, he felt like crap when Johanna dump him. The more Johanna got to see the real Stone, the more she realize she made a huge mistake. Overall, I thought this story was a fun read and an eye-opening experience for Stone and Johanna. So, if you love reunited loves, you might consider reading One Good Cowboy.
