The Trouble With Cowboys by Denise Hunter

About the Book
Only one pair of boots—and the cowboy wearing them—can get Annie out of the mess she’s in.
Annie Wilkerson is Moose Creek’s premiere horse trainer and equine columnist for Montana Living. Money is tight as she tries to put her kid-sister through college and provide for her young nephew. When Annie’s column is cancelled, she’s given first shot at a new lovelorn column—and she can’t afford to turn it down. Only problem is . . . Annie’s never been in love.
Always resourceful, she reluctantly strikes a deal with the town’s smooth-talking ladies’ man Dylan Taylor: She’ll work with his ailing horse, Braveheart, if he’ll help her answer the reader letters.
Working closely with Dylan is harder than Annie imagined, and she quickly realizes she may have misjudged him. But her unwavering conviction that cowboys are nothing but trouble has kept her heart safe for years. And she can’t risk getting hurt now.
The more Annie tries to control things, the more they fall apart. Her feelings are spinning out of control, and her sister’s antics are making life increasingly more difficult. Annie knows she needs to turn the reins over to God, but surrender has never come easily.
When Dylan reveals his feelings for her, Annie doesn't know what to trust—her head or her heart. The trouble with this cowboy is that he might just be exactly what she needs.

My Thoughts
Another Big Sky Romance hit! When I met Dylan Taylor in the first book in this series, A Cowboy's Touch, I was pretty intrigued so I was super excited when I found out he'd be getting a story of his own! I loved Dylan's cocky hero persona, he was just one of those guys you can't help loving and it was cool to get a look at his more serious side. His attitude really reminded me of Richard Castle (from ABC's Castle) but the Christian version.
Annie was a pretty cool heroine and I really admired her for all that she did for her sister even though Sierra often didn't seem to care. I probably would have lost my cool much earlier on. It was a little annoying how she stereotyped cowboys (especially Dylan) but she did have a justified reason to and she did end up getting over it so all's forgiven.
It was really fun to revisit with the characters from the first two books and see where their lives were at. All in all I think this was my favorite of the series-I absolutely loved it!
