A Jeri Release Day Review: Rocking the Cowboy by Skylar M. Cates


Rating: 3 Stars out of 5

This was a cute, what I like to call, a throw away read. It kept me fairly entertained, there was no big angst, the sex was fairly hot and the romance tried. But overall I wasn’t emotionally connected to the characters and it left me wanting a little more.
Jed is running the family ranch and has since his father took off to become an entertainment manager in LA. Specifically the manager of Remy Sean, up and coming Disney star. But as the years pass and Remy becomes more and more popular until he is mobbed at a concert. Overwhelmed with anxiety, he goes off to hide at the ranch. With Jed, who barely remembers Remy but who Remy couldn’t forget.
So, that was part of my issue. How could Jed hardly remember Remy when it was Remy’s career that his father left for. Jed just sees this as a means to an end. His father gets to send his biggest client to the ranch to relax and Jed will get his father to sign over the other half of the ranch and guarantee his father’s presence at his sister’s wedding.
Overall Jed was so blah. He didn’t even really perk up when he and Remy got together. He really was a wet blanket.
I get that Remy needed the time on the ranch, but it seemed to dull his sparkle. There was so much there that could have been used to make the story more interesting. More playing, more banter, more longing looks. Just more.
I won’t remember this story in a week, but it was ok.
Cover art: Aaron Anderson.  The cover is eye-catching and splashy! A perfect combination of cowboy and rockstar.
