3 stars-- Shoulda Been a Cowboy (Copper Ridge 0.5) by Maisey Yates

Note: I accidentally deleted 6 months of the blog so this is a repost. All comments on the original posts were unfortunately lost. Sorry!

Shoulda Been a Cowboy, indeed. Hes a mechanic, though. Still pretty dang sexy and worth a lick 😉
The Gist: It's been 15 years since Jake and Cassie's high school friendship was put on hold when he left town unexpectedly. He's come home to deal with his father's estate. She happens to rent one of the buildings he's planning on selling. Oy!

I enjoyed Jake and Cassie. The supposed 'good girl' and the 'bad boy'. They bicker and give each other a little hell since they're on somewhat opposing sides where the property she rents is concerned. What they're in agreement on? Well, the mutual exchange of many orgasms. Yes, indeed. They're fun characters and nice together. Had some steamy scenes and some funny ones as they dealt with childhood issues and some undeniable attraction.
“Muffins aren’t manly?”

“Well, I don’t get a lot of men in here ordering them.”

“Well, screw that. Muffins are delicious.”

She lifted a shoulder. “Fair point."
Shoulda Been a Cowboy was a short read and nice for a busy weekend but not one that'll really stick with me I don't think. There was some pretty questionable editing, too. But overall a fun quickie.
There's not much about his teenage years that Jake Caldwell can be proud of. Except maybe for keeping his hands off cute, kind-hearted Cassie Ventimiglia. She was the only one who saw him as more than a tattooed rebel who couldn't wait to leave the ranching life behind. Now he's back in Copper Ridge to sell his father's property-and staying right above Cassie's coffee shop. And out of nowhere, the girl he's never forgotten is offering a whole lot more than fresh-baked muffins...

Jake's dark, smoldering appeal hasn't changed one bit. But Cassie has. Following everyone else's rules didn't quite work out. Time to ask for what she's always wanted...and what Jake's more than happy to give. A wild, hot romance that could make a one-time bad boy realize he's back for good.
