One of the constants in my life is that I will love Joanne Kennedy's western romances. That is no different with Cowboy Tough. I loved it.
Cat was one of those characters that I made an instant connection to. She was smart, independent and very easy to relate to. She's also quite strong. I've been reading a lot of weepy heroines lately and she was such a nice departure from that. Mac was equally as amazing. He was tough as you would expect a rough and tumble cowboy to be but he also was very kind and sweet. And he's a mama's boy which this Italian girl loves.
I loved this book. It's a pretty standard western contemporary romance but it's done very very well. It almost broke me out of my reading slump...until I got the flu and went right back into slumpage. The chemistry between Cat and Mac was amazing. I really wasn't expecting them to have such great chemistry but they did. They were perfect. I also loved the bits of humor. I've had a bit of a rough month so any chuckle I could find was welcome and appreciated.
