Carolyn Brown ☆ One Lucky Cowboy Ebook

E's drop dead gorgeous grandson Lucky Slade is sure he can spot a con artist a mile away He's determined not to let some upstart like Jane fleece his grannyWhen his signature intimidation methods don't convi 25 but have to remove for the racism homophobia and promotion of drunk drivingI have read enough Carolyn Brown to not at all be surprised by the style Lots of women doing the women's stuff and men being men The fact the MMC Slade knows how to do basic cooking is pretty progressive in Ms Brown's world Slade is a a Luckadeau and lives with his eccentric grandmother who raised him She has brought home Jane to help with the cooking and driving He is worried that Jane is a conning grandma and in on respect he is right She is untruthful about who she is because she needs somewhere to hide out for 6 weeks Jane and Slade fight a lot and Grandma works hard to push them together In the end it is not grandma's meddling but the two of them running from her dangerous ex that makes them hop into bed with each other As a story it was a bit all over the place and not as relaxing a read as some of her other recent books But what made me cringe was the references to people's skin colour only when they were not white Add to that the mocking of one young man by suggesting he is not manly enough and might have needed starch for his wrists That was when I was out

Reader Ú One Lucky Cowboy ☆ Carolyn Brown

One Lucky CowboyNce Jane to leave he pours on the charm to make her spill what she's up to She's happy to play along but she's not going to let this hot hostile cowboy run her off his land when all she needs is a lucky brea Where to beginwhile there are scenes of this book that are amusing and somewhat entertaining there is a great deal of it that is just plain awful The dialogue is stilted and unnatural What I am assuming is supposed to be banter between the main characters doesn't sound like the way two adults with two brain cells to rub together would talk There are some genuinely amusing moments between Jane and Slade but then the very next moment there are inane catfights in parking lots and Walmarts no less that make you wonder Who are these people and what Jerry Springer show did they escape from? Was the author going for a hardworking salt of the Earth kind of thing with these characters? They're wealthy and they've got good old fashioned values? Not likely Both of the main characters of this book Slade and Jane prove that having money obviously does not give you tact or knowledge or class for that matter They argue like middle schoolers Seriously I was waiting for Jane to tell Slade I know you are but what am I? The heroine has a few tirades where she says Nobody calls me white trash and I found myself thinking Well stop acting like it And did we really have to read about the lyrics to every song they heard andor danced to? Or the plot lines of the films they watched? Or the scenes where Jane and Slade dance and the rest of the people present all gather around them to watch and cheer It's the type of thing a pre pubescent girl pictures because she thinks it sounds dreamy romantic and sweet Then she hopefully grows up and realizes how tacky it all is Honestly the characters of this book secondary as well as primary prove to be tactless ignorant low class people who are chugging down too much heart stoppin food and massive amounts of liuor all so they can end up at the wedding ceremony barefoot and pregnant no less and head on over to their double wide trailerwhoooo weeeee Instead of charming they're along the line of slack jawed yokels that tip toe dangerously close to the line of Deliverance hmmm there are several references to a pigI'm just saying Yikes There's the happily ever after every girl dreams of
