Author: Annie Rains
With its thriving military base, Seaside, North Carolina, is teeming with heroes of all stripes. But, as the bestselling Hero’s Welcome series from Annie Rains continues, it takes a cowboy to rescue the town’s newest resident from heartache.
After a bad breakup leaves Julie Chandler completely devastated, she comes to Seaside seeking a fresh start. A talented, compassionate yoga teacher, she has developed a program to help alleviate the effects of PTSD, but getting a bunch of bullheaded Marines into downward facing dog might be impossible. So Julie’s shocked when one of her first students dives in headfirst—and almost tempts her to take down her walls with his easy smile and electrifying touch.
Ever since Texas cowboy turned Marine pilot Lawson Phillips lost a crew member in a helicopter accident, he hasn’t been able to fly. When a psychologist orders him to attend, of all things, a yoga class, Lawson’s outraged—until he finds out Julie is the instructor. She’s beautiful, graceful, and completely guarded when it comes to his advances, but he’s determined to find out what makes her tick. Because underneath Julie’s hard shell is a woman Lawson knows he could fall for—and he’s not ready for the ride to end.
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
2 out of 5 stars
Welcome Home, Cowboy isn't a horrible book and I can see other people really loving it, but this story just wasn't for me. While I really liked the premise of this story and the author's writing style I just didn't connect with either of the two main characters and as a result I just wasn't able to really get into their love story. Also, I felt like the author should have gone more in depth when it came to the incident that caused Lawson to suffer from PTSD, as well as what happened in Julie's past relationship. Both things are important to the storyline, but I felt like they were kind of glossed over and not sufficiently fleshed out. But as I stated at the beginning of the review, I have to admit while this story just didn't work for me personally, based on the things I did like I can totally see other readers really loving this romance, so don't let my dislike of this book scare you away. Lol.
