Book 1 of Cherry County Cowboys
LGBTQ, Western Romance

Dr. Grayson Taylor is convinced that a summer fling with the bartending cowboy is a quick remedy to mend his broken heart. Soon his plans to return to big city lights for a dream career don't seem as attractive as the cowboy with dimples lying in his bed. When Grayson's charred past reappears, can he learn that forgiveness costs less than pride and admit he is the one who needs to be healed?

Cowboy Izaac Scott drove into town with little more than boots on his feet, a well-loved baseball cap on his head and a cross-country journey on his mind, but he's not sightseeing. He's running from the ghost of a first love. Will the doctor be the one to help Izaac realize that true love can heal the past or will the cruel spurs of life jab him in the heart again?

YE-HAW! Gimme some angsty, cowboy love!

Grayson returned to his family's ranch after a bad breakup with his boyfriend. He went home to try and figure what his next move would be. He didn't expect to meet a sexy bartender that he had instant chemistry with.

Izaac has been running from his past since he was young and only planned to stay in the small town for a while, until he decided it was time to move on. But his plans changed when he met Grayson.

I loved these guys together. Even though they had some issues to work past, they were great together and a pleasure to read about. They were fun, sweet and sexy. I especially loved Izaac and the way he opened himself up for Grayson, after years of shutting himself off.

There was a lot of drama in this book, especially in Grayson's family. A LOT. They were a very loving and supporting family, but they were all on board the drama llama train. That's not an exaggeration. I could list all the problems, but I don't want to spoil. Let's just say that just about every angsty plot device you can think of was probably in this book. Every time I turned the page there was something new.

While all the (unnecessary) angst started to bug me by the end, I did finish the book in one sitting. So I guess it didn't bother me too much, eh? I was definitely engaged and wanted to know that Grayson and Izaac got their HEA.

SPURS is my first read by Jules Dixon and it certainly won't be my last, especially if there's a sequel on the horizon.
