Book blurb:

Las doesn’t date seasonal workers. Marco’s on a three-month contract.

Lassiter Windsor-March has been planning for his future for as long as he can remember and he knows exactly where that future lies: at his family’s ranch in Wyoming. What doesn’t lie in his future is a summer fling with one of the seasonal workers—they never stick around.

Even if one of those workers is the college crush he’s invited to work a summer job at the ranch.

Marco Terlizzese is as laissez-faire as Las isn’t. He might not know where he’ll be once his contract with Windsor Ranch is up, but he knows three months is plenty of time to get his long-time crush to agree to go out with him.

Amid a starry summer sky, their chemistry ignites as feelings deepen, forcing Las and Marco to decide where they truly belong.

A note from Amy Aislin:

Home for a Cowboy is about giving love a chance and discovering where you belong.

Teaser:

Tracing the Little Dipper with his eyes, he hugged his arms to himself, chasing off a chilled breeze that snuck under his hoodie despite the fire, and comforted himself with the possibility that maybe Las was at home right now, wherever home was, gazing out his bedroom window, or perhaps lying on his back on top of a sleeping bag next to his tent, blinking up at the same stars as Marco.

And on Marco’s face, a slack jaw, wide eyes, open staring. “How is this real?” His tone was reverent.

“It’s even better at sunset.” Las kept his voice just as soft. “The sun goes down right over there, behind that mountain.” He let a smile curl his lips. “But if we came at sunset we’d be walking back in the dark and I remember a certain someone is afraid of what lurks in the dark.”

Marco did a slow pan toward him. “I don’t know what you’re talking about.”

If Las’s mountains and stars couldn’t convince Marco to stay, he wasn’t sure anything could. Las would keep losing tiny parts of himself to Marco until he didn’t have anything left to give.

It would be worth it. Marco was worth much more than a broken heart.

Review:

This book didn’t read like the usual cowboy romance for me. Yes, it set on a Wyoming ranch and there’s one loner young cowboy as one of the leading men. But besides (learning to) horse-riding, there were also star-gazing, hiking and camping, and a bit of hockey. I guess I still hang up over the last Amy Aislin’s book (I read) and HOME FOR A COWBOY served as some sort transition from her hockey world to the cowboy world on “Windsor, Wyoming” series.

The story centered on Marco and Lassiter, fresh out of college and on summer break before continuing on with their life’s plan. The leading men had built a rapport off page and through alternate POVs we learned what’s transpired when they looked back on that period. Marco was an easy to like character with his open and pleasant personalities. Las – I think – was an acquired taste with his brooding nature and hot and cold treatment to Marco.

What I loved about this book was the cosiness with which Las and Marco relationship developing – I mentioned earlier the stargazing et al – the laid-back pace shaping the sort of romantic courtship that won this reader over. I wasn’t too crazy with the whole misunderstanding or quick to judge phase, but happy that either characters didn’t let things fester too long and even took time to reflect and mend the fences so to speak.

As the start of a new series, I felt HOME FOR A COWBOY is up to par, setting the premises and potential characters for the upcoming stories to follow (after this). I definitely look forward to the next installment of this series.
