3.5 stars-- Cowboy, It's Cold Outside (Twilight, Texas #8) by Lori Wilde

Christmas and cowboys? Well, maybe not an actual cowboy but a sexy country singer giving back? Um, yeah, yeah that'll work real nice, too.

Cowboy, It's Cold Outside left me smiling.

The Gist: Cash is a big country star and he's in Twilight for a friend's benefit concert. Should be a simple gig. Sing a little. Do a little good. Christmas it up a bit. Keep his mitts off one of Santa's Helpers. Yeah, that last one. Blunder. The spunky small town girl with a big heart totally knocks his world sideways.

Cash is a captivating hero. You can't help but like him. And feel for him. He's wandered his whole life and really has no one to call his own. It made me ache for him. And Paige has had some hard knocks in life but keeps going. She's a fighter through and through.

And they were so fun together. His free spirit and playfulness. Her solid roots and realness. It was the perfect balance and brought out the best in each of them. It was fun watching them hang out and hard not to smile over them. And I worried over them, too, as they dealt with all the things life had handed them over the years.

I loved the Christmas in a small town setting, too. The cheer and comfort. It was just good for the heart.

There were two struggles, though. There was an...abundance of words. So many words. Some parts too flowery and others that could have been easily edited down and not lost any of the feels. And a personal pet peeve of mine when a heroine messes up but then the hero apologizes. I really needed a bit more from the heroine there at the end.

Overall, though, Christmas fun was had and I enjoyed spending time with Paige and Cash. They really were a cute couple.

Wearing a too-tight “Santa Baby” costume held in by a double pair of Spanx, Paige MacGregor runs headlong into a gorgeous, grey-eyed hunk of a long, tall cowboy. And not just any cowboy, but country-western star Cash Colton, visiting Twilight to perform in a charity concert. Most women would melt at his feet, but Paige knows all too much about self-assured men with cocky attitudes, so she tells him to get lost.

Cash is in town, nursing his own broken heart, but Paige has knocked him off his feet. He’s convinced she’s perfect—someone to inspire his music and share his now-empty bed. True, he’s not marriage material, but he’s determined to convince her that they’re perfect together—at least for a while. But what he doesn’t count on is falling in love with the one woman who isn’t about to give him the time of day!
