★★★★ 5 "Choose Love" Stars ★★★★
I received an arc of this novel via the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
Laney Delaney was living the dream. She had a fabulous fiancé and a career as a couture wedding dress designer. But after catching her (turns out, not-so-fabulous) fiancé cheating and being accused of upstaging one of her brides at a wedding, Laney finds herself with no boyfriend, no job and no plan.
After some serious soul searching, Laney is determined to start over. She embarks on a design career that takes her from a Rodeo Drive boutique to a flea market stall, but it’s worth it—even if it means she has to suck up to her childhood nemesis for help.
At the same time, three very different men vie for her attention: a masseuse/screenwriter with an unfortunate reputation, a stable fireman who just doesn’t spark a romantic flame, and the fireman’s ridiculously hot co-worker whose illicit under-the-mistletoe kiss still burns Laney’s lips.
Professionally and romantically, Laney is on the verge of reinventing her life and finding her true passion—but can she learn to trust again and believe in herself?
What would you do if your fiancé cheated on you (and then married the woman he cheated with)? Or if, if you lost your job because your boss is much more worried about her and her husband’s status than her employees? These are the things that Laney Delaney faces in the novel Frosted Cowboy. It’s pretty clear from the get go that Laney is facing some really tough things in her life. But fortunately for her, she is (kind of) able to handle these things with humor and a lot of grace. On the other hand, she can’t seem to get out of mishaps as her dating life if plunging (she consistently picks the wrong men) and her new career venture is putting her on the “out” list. Will her life evet become normal again? Or is she destined to live a life of spinsterhood?
I LOVED this book. Everything about it is smart, funny, and fun. This is chick lit at its finest and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Throughout the story we are taken on a journey through Laney’s life as she dives through hoops and obstacles. Readers will cringe at some of her dating mishaps and laugh out loud at her personality and wit. This is truly a great book and I cannot wait to see what Charlene Ross writes up next!
