One thing that is so evident when picking up a Katie Lane book is the reader is in for some ride. Such is the case with The Last Cowboy in Texas by the uber talented Katie Lane, who has the reader in stitches and questioning ones sanity by then end of the story.
There is a whole lot going on in Bramble, Texas. This time around, hometown girl, Starlett Brubaker is living the high life as a country music sensation. Only thing is, Star is surrounded by people in her family who use her fame as their own and now, Star is going through a crisis when she can't seem to write songs as easily as she could before. When Starlett lived at the Hen House, geeky friend, Beckett Cates was so important to her, but times change and so do people and they all moved on, or so it seems.
When Beckett re-encounters Star at one of her concerts, he shakes his head in disbelief at how she looks and acts. This is not his Starlett. Her unreal hair, eyes and her now lanky appearance are not what he fell for back in the day, but when he finds she is in danger, the now buff, ex-Marine turns heads when he saves Star from a near kidnapping. Star is shocked to see her "Becky" has changed from geek to the hot man who saves her. Confusion ensues on both ends when Star realizes she can no longer pine after Beckett's brother, who is happily married, by the way. Beckett thought Starlett to be selfish and flighty, but little by little his notions are changed and his attraction to her comes out again and when they both are together, sparks fly.
The pressure of her country music lifestyle is taking its toll on Star and her only respite is when Beckett is around. Her head is clear and she is able to write some songs. She believes Beckett is her muse, but is he more?
Wow, I couldn't put this book down. Katie Lane is the cause of many sleepless nights for me and always for a good reason. The Last Cowboy is Texas is the last in the Deep In The Heart Of Texas series, and while sorry to see it end, I am so happy with the outcomes in this tale. All the wonderful characters are in certain places in their lives, where the reader can sigh with relief and smile that they all get their HEA's. Starlett has her big dreams, but can her big dreams include the one and only man her knows her best? Pick up your copy of The Last Cowboy In Texas by Katie Lane to find out!
