3.5 out of 4 stars
Let me start by saying that this book was wayyyy outside my comfort genre. I am not a big cowboy person and the idea of picking up a cowboy book made me a little nervous. Though I will say: “Thank you Cat Johnson!.” This Oklahoma Nights novel was quick, painless, sexy, and intriguing. Now I will say that this is the first time I’ve read a book by Cat Johnson and there are two other novels before this one. However, I think that this book works just as well as a stand-alone as it does in a series. Her characters developed beautifully through the story and I was very sad to see it end at what seems to be the beginning of their relationship.
I found a few things very interesting during this novel, the main one being abuse by a woman to a man. Typically abuse in books (or talked about in general) is a man abusing a woman but Cat Johnson shows that this is easily turned around. During the story Jace (our leading male) has a thought that he is more abused by his ex then he is by the bulls he rides; and it broke my heart! I also found our leading lady intriguing but in a less positive way. After being in love with the same man for what seems like her whole life; he’s married to another woman and soon to be a father. To get back at him she’s decided that her useless virginity has to go; and any cowboy at the rodeo will do.
Put together by a broken car, no money, a brother/friend, and a rodeo competition Three Weeks with a Bull Rider showed me that cowboys can be sexy and this genre is not to be ignored.
I got my copy of Three Weeks with a Bull Rider by: Cat Johnson from Mamma D’s personal collection. This review is my own personal views and opinions (no payment involved). The picture and book description were taken off of Cat Johnson’s website which can be found by clicking on the hyperlink in the picture. Happy reading!
