BLOG TOUR: My Cowboy Promises by ZA Maxfield

Thanks to Enchantress of Books Blog Tours for hosting this blog tour. I'm sharing my review of ZA Maxfield's My Cowboy Promises today. Happy reading!



A real man needs a real love…

To become the man he’s meant to be, one cowboy will have to be the man he never wanted anyone to know he was…

Ryder Dent is a true-blue cowboy. A devoted son, husband and father, but one who is living a costly lie. When they were both young, Ryder and his closest female friend Andy thought they’d found the perfect solution to both their problems—she was single and pregnant, and he was secretly gay—so they got married and raised Jonas together.

When Ryder gets hurt at a party, his son’s new pediatrician comes to the rescue. The connection between Ryder and Dr. Declan Winters is sudden, powerful, and undeniable. Ryder loves Andy and the family they’ve created together—but they both need more. Can they pursue their hearts’ desire without destroying the life they’ve built and losing the son they love?

This was my first ZA Maxfield book and I look forward to more of her work. It started off pretty slow for me, but that was due to situational setup. There were several elements to the conflict so it took time to build. When the poo hit the fan, it REALLY hit, but I liked the resolution. The story was very family focused in multiple ways which I loved and appreciated. The characters stayed true from start to finish and, including flaws, were very endearing. I didn’t always love Andy, but she came through in the end, as did the men. Overall, it was a very sweet, compelling read.

Bottom Line:

My Cowboy Promises is a complicated story about love and the significance of family. It’s a pretty awesome and emotional read!
