This Texas cowboy has come home to Copper Ridge to put down roots…but will he risk his heart again?

Asked where he'd be at this point in life, Cain Donnelly would have said anywhere but Copper Ridge, Oregon, living with his estranged brothers. But since his wife abandoned them, both he and his daughter, Violet, are in need of a fresh start, so he's back to claim his share of the family ranch. Local baker Alison Davis is a delicious temptation, but she's also his daughter's mentor and new boss. That makes her off-limits…until she offers a no-strings deal that no red-blooded cowboy could resist.

Alison has worked tirelessly to rebuild her life, and she won't jeopardize her hard-won independence. Especially if it also complicates Cain's relationship with Violet. But with Cain offering a love she never thought was possible, Alison has to find the courage to let her past go…or watch her future ride away for good.

My Thoughts:  Maisey Yates delivers another hot sexy cowboy romance in Down Home Cowboy.  While it can easily be read as a standalone, Down Home Cowboy is part of Yates Copper Ridge Series, each of which features swoon-worthy cowboys and the ladies they love.  I've not had a chance to read them all yet, but I have read several, all of which I have thoroughly enjoyed.  

In Down Home Cowboy, we meet Cain Donnelly, one of the Donnelly brothers.  He and his daughter Violet have moved back to Copper Ridge from Texas, after his wife walked out on them several years previously.  Cain has never been good at relationships and isn't interested in one now, convincing himself all his focus and energy has to be on Violet, but then he's really having a difficult time learning how to deal with and relate to his brooding teenage daughter.  While he isn't interested in a relationship, it's been quite sometime since he shared a bed with a woman, and that is something he is missing.  The only problem is that he hasn't found a woman yet that peaks his interest, that is until he sees this beautiful red-head while out one night with his brothers.  

Low and behold, when he drops his daughter off at her part-time job in the early morning, who does he run into, but the same beautiful woman he saw at the bar.  This woman is Alison Davis, owner of the local bakery and his daughter's new boss.  As the story progresses so does the undeniable attraction between Cain and Alison, and things get even more complicated.  They strike an agreement of sorts and Alison tries to help Cain with his relationshiop issues with Violet, all the while, whether they realize it or not, they both help each other deal with their own issues, both physically and emotionally, which proves to be quite the entertaining read.

Down Home Cowboy is a really great story filled with hot romance, characters you can't help but love, and is something than contemporary romance fans will most definitely want to check out.
