Country Courtship and Texas Two Step reviews

hot flash
The Texas Two-Step romantic comedy series is a reader favorite. All of the stories in the series are sweet, charming and emotional contemporary romance. Each story in the series stands alone, but all Texas Two-Step novels and novellas feature love stories about members of the Nelson, Murphy or Palmer families — and sometimes, more than one!

When Kelli Palmer meets Bobby Gray Nelson at a family get-together, their attraction is immediate. But Kelli's kid sister already has dibs on Bobby Gray.

Bobby Gray Nelson never takes no for an answer, a resolve that made him a rodeo champion.

But Kelli is standing her ground.

Now Bobby Gray must do something he's never done: woo the woman who's already claimed his heart, and earn permission to place his brand on hers.

Country Courtship is the third sweet romance in the Texas Two-Step contemporary romance series from USA Today bestselling author Kathy Carmichael. Previously titled: Kissing Kelli

Like most women, I find rodeo stars and cowboys attractive. I am not a buckle bunny by any means, but perhaps if I ever saw Bobby Gray Nelson in person, that might change. I met Charlie's brother in Chasing Charlie where Bobby Gray was being the overly protective brother. This time, Bobby Gray is the one in trouble. Woman trouble.

He thinks he is chasing the beautiful "Dr. Princess" to make an impression on a business associate, but when Dr. Kelli Palmer plays hard to get, and his charm is not enough to sway her, Bobby Gray finds his emotions are equalling his stubborness in getting what he wants.

I love the way Kathy Carmichael brings characters to life. They are well developed, attractive, intelligent and a lot of fun. The reader loves to be included and wants to stay around them. You never know what will happen next.
Both Kelli and Bobby Gray are fiercely loyal to their families. Both are strong and intelligent. Formidable opponents. And the electricity when they get close to each other!

Kick off your boots and get comfortable. Kathy Carmichael is going to take you for a wild ride.

Chasing Charlie, Texas Two-Step Series Book 1 FREE EBOOK
Raised in a family of rodeo champions on a South Texas cattle ranch, Charlie wants only one thing: to avoid thrill-seeking cowboys.

Davis Murphy, cowboy wannabe and one of Dallas's most eligible bachelors, needs a pretty and witty faux fiancée so his widowed mother will marry her longtime gentleman friend.

Charlie, his local librarian, seems the prefect choice.

Charlie's first reaction is to run, but she's promised herself to step out of her plain-jane routine.

When Charlie accepts, Davis's plan is set. But now Charlie's sweet ways are challenging his bachelor heart.

When you combine two very strong personalities, who each think they have a life plan, add in some family dynamics, (aren't they all dysfunctional?) and try to plan a last minute wedding, you can not help but result in a humorous read. 
Charlie thinks she needs to take some small risks to liven up her boring life. Her life plan is about predictability without risk. Davis has taken the responsible road and wants to experience adventure and adrenaline while pursuing his dream. All he has left to do is convince his mother to marry the man of her dreams. To that end, he has to convince her she is not deserting him.

A plan is hatched. Without really understanding how, Charlie finds herself smack in the center of it.
Davis could choose any woman he desired. Why her? I laughed at the references where Charlie was his mother's typie and Davis was proposing to her brothers. It seemed so true. 

With well developed characters I was drawn to and a nicely paced plot, this was a fun read.
I did receive this book for my honest review without compensation.
