leads were very likeable relatable The main thing I thought would have made this better were very likeable relatable The main thing I thought would have made this better a bit detail into how their feelings change from friends to lovers She saw Pete without a shirt and suddenly he s so hot she can t stop thinking about him Are you telling me in ver 10 years f friendship in Texas they never went swimming r to a pool together I found it seemed to skip from we ve been friends forever and have always been platonic to I m falling hard and fast and I can t understand whyAgain good bookcould ve been great Wonderful friends to lovers books Pete and Elissa have been friends since she came to live with her aunt as a teenager As the book You Are a Miserable Excuse for a Hero!: Book One in the Just Make a Choice! Series opens a devastating tornado rips through Blue Falls Elissa and Verona s house iskay but her nursery is heavily damaged and Pete s house is completely destroyed They invite him to stay at their house until he can get set up again But something has changed between Pete and Elissa and neither is uite sure what to do about itElissa spent most f her childhood traveling with her parents until she wanted a normal high school life She moved in with her aunt and made friends including Pete Seeing him emerged unhurt from the storm shelter sent feelings through her that she d never There s nothing wrong with babies India saidNot when they re someone else s little booger and poop factories pg 40This book was mostly boringThis isn t a dig n Milburn Women and Social Work: Towards a Woman-Centered Practice or her writing Please remember that I gave Having the Cowboy s Baby four starsI think partf the boredom comes from Milburn s choice f plot which is friends to lovers I don t know if this trope is naturally difficult to make exciting but that seemed to be the case hereElissa and Pete have been friends since high school When a tornado hits Texas and destroys both Elissa s business and Pete s house Pete moves in to live with Elissa and her aunt in the spare bedroom Sparks start to fly I guess I was unconvinced sparks were flying I did not really see any chemistry between these two I suppose theoretically the right author could make a friends to lovers trope really sing ut but this The Cowboys one wasn t doing it for me OTHER PROBLEMS One Milburn s ever present fatbsession which comes Sins of Treachery out in all three books in this series She cannot have a character eat food without wondering commentingn its fat content if it will make himher fat if heshe will become fat at some point if continued eating f the food will cause fatness etc etc etc She also has a long running thing about joking about pregnant women being fat I m sure it s all supposed to be in good fun but ALL f this was really annoying meThe My Grandfather's Prison: A Story of Death and Deceit in 1940s Kansas City only part it really made sense in was Skyler worrying about what she was eating in Having the Cowboy s Baby because she was EXACTLY the kindf rigid uptight controlled character who would bsess about everything she ate So it fit But we still had to deal with the ha ha pregnant women are fat thing In this book and in India s book it Ado she has to rebuild and nothing's going to distract her Not even her new feelings for neighbor turned roommate Pete Kayne Deputy Sheriff Pete Kayne understands having a dream and doesn't want to get in Elissa's way Especially after the tornado ha. ,

Ust annoyed me and made me angry It depresses me when no character can eat food without making some remark about fat To be clear no ne in the books is actually fat It s just a constant self monitoring self insulting and friend monitoring and friend insulting that IRL would make me end these friendships because they make me end these friendships because they toxicWhich brings me to my second pointTwo I don t really like Elissa Whos Next? Guess Who! our heroine I didn t like her in the previous books where she shoves men into her friends lives and tries to manipulate them and is a nosy busybody I don t like her now She s not particularly warm and loving She lashesut ccasionally She teases people but IMO not in a kind way I didn t think she was a monster but I didn t like herI didn t understand the romance at all I didn t understand why Elissa suddenly starts lusting after Pete after being best friends with him for 10 years Then they spend half the novel pretending like they were NOT attracted to each ther for some reason which was a huge waste Papi's Gift of time Then they start kissingfuckingdating secretly Then they break up for a completely cockamamie reason that makes little to no sense Really for nother reason than Milburn needs to have a break up scene so they can make up at the end HOW S THE SEX CARMENA surprising bright spot Pete was competent in bed I mean this was no Blaze but I was happy with the way he chose to have first time sex with Elissa His
