Title: One Texas Cowboy Too Many
Series: Burnt Boot Texas #3
Author: Carolyn Brown
Genre: Romance, Western
Blurb: Leah Brennan is a member of the Brennan family. One of the feuding families of Burnt Boot. She is sweet, thoughtful, quiet, and nothing like her feuding kin. She would love nothing better than to see an end to the feud between the Brennans and the Gallaghers. Since she was in school she has always had a crush on Tanner Gallagher, but being a Brennan she knew that he was the untouchable, off-limits too the likes of her. But when Rhett O’Donnell rides into down on a steal horse, her crush on Tanner, her feelings for him seem to take a back seat and the only person she can see is Rhett.
Rhett wants nothing to do with the feud between the Brennans and the Gallaghers, but he wants to have something with the sweet, sexy Leah Brennan, who is innocent and unassuming. There is something about her that calls to his soul, makes him want to spend time with her, protect her and help her in any way that he can.
But when the feud takes a turn from the Pig Wars, to the Shit Wars, and Leah finds herself in the middle of Rhett and Tanner, both looking for her attention, she is beginning to wonder if she could have one cowboy too many on her hands.
Thoughts:I love how Carolyn started the story as a love triangle that changed in a very short time into an intense bond between Rhett and Leah. It became clear to Leah after several stalker like moves that Tanner was trying to use Leah’s crush on him to cause more harm to the Brennan family and he along with is cousin will do anything to break Leah and Rhett apart.
For those of you that have read the other books in this series, you will know that the Brennan-Gallagher Feud is worse than the Hatfields and the McCoys, and seriously, if you thought that the Pig Wars were funny, wait till you get a load of the Shit Wars! I mean this book should come with a warning: “Watch out for flying toilets!” In the end, Rhett and Leah get a HEA, it might seem a little quickly due to the turn of events, but for me, it just seemed that these two were a perfect match in every way.
I really enjoyed this story, I have enjoyed this entire series and I truly look forward to the next story in the Burnt Boot Series to see what other problems the Brennan and Gallagher families get into.
