shoudve_been_cowboyThompson’s fourth Sons of Chance story: “Should've Been a Cowboy” leaves readers wishing for a real cowboy

“Should've Been a Cowboy” by Vicki Lewis Thompson (contemporary, Harlequin Blaze, June 2011, 224 pages, $4.99): Party organizer Tyler O’Connelli is on the fast track to her dream career. She’s so close she can almost taste it. But when she returns to her family and sees her one-night stand, Alex Keller, all done up in his cowboy gear, her self-control is stretched to the breaking point.


Alex left behind a career as a DJ to join the Last Chance Ranch as a marketing director. When Tyler shows up, it throws him. He hasn’t forgotten about their night in the hay loft a year ago. But they’re worlds apart. She’s a busy career girl, and Alex is a cowboy. That doesn’t stop the heat that builds between them.



This is the fourth book in the Sons of Chance story, and the author spends a great deal of time trying to juggle all the previous characters. Fans of the series will enjoy seeing familiar faces, but new readers will have trouble navigating the awkward inclusion of everyone else’s story.


Tyler and Alex’s story packs some heat, but their relationship is stuck in either one of two modes—either they’re ripping each other’s clothes off in awkard locations (on top of a cold, wet rock?) or they’re allowing the smallest misunderstandings to completely derail their budding relationship. This will leave the reader frustrated Alex and Tyler never just say what they mean. Despite this, readers will find themselves wishing for a real cowboy of their own.


“Cowboy Up,” the fifth Sons of Chance book, is scheduled for release in July; “Cowboys Like Us,” the final book in the series, will be out in August.


Sarah M. Anderson's book reivew of the contemporary tale Creed's Honor by Linda Lael Miller.
