“Yates does a good job with the small-town she has created. With a lot of friendly faces and some good humor, I’m sure this new series will be a hit for many.” ~ Under the Covers

PART-TIME COWBOY is my first book but author Maisey Yates. I was interested in trying her work because I just love small-town romances and was looking for something to read after Lucky Harbor. Yates has the small-town feel down pat with the one-time bad girl heroine returning to her childhood town of Copper Ridge. In the opening scene, she also has the clique “Everything is hopeless” scene where the heroine is driving in and she experiences car trouble. There’s some talking to herself, talking to her cat, which is all swell and cute. Then comes the quintessential grumpy cop hero who finds her and doesn’t offer much but some help.

Sadie and Eli actually know each other well, but since she left town ten years ago, things have been a little strained between them. For me I thought the problem lay in the writing style. I guess the author and I didn’t mesh well. In the first page, there’s a lot of “she did this, she did that” that I noticed immediately and as the story went on, there’s a lot of blabbering. Then I realized it’s because I didn’t get along with the heroine. Her mind was just all over the place and it began to grate on me.

Eli, on the other hand, is a little less intense. He seems more grounded and developed while Sadie is desperately trying to figure out her life. While I think it would’ve been a little more boring if the story was told from Eli’s POV, I just couldn’t find myself connecting with Sadie and her disjointed thoughts.

Yates does a good job with the small-town she has created. With a lot of friendly faces and some good humor, I’m sure this new series will be a hit for many. Unfortunately, I think I’ll pass on the next one.
