A brand-new sweet and steamy contemporary cowboy romance series from USA Today bestselling author A.J. Pine. Holding out for a Cowboy features:
- Second chances at success—and at love.
- Childhood sweethearts who broke each other's hearts and are now determined to be friends. Not so easy.
- Finding out how to do whatever it takes to live the life you want.
Casey Walsh and Boone Murphy had a bright future together until tragedy tore them apart. Now, more than a decade later, the beauty school dropout runs Meadow Valley's family tavern and steers clear of the boy who once stole her heart—no small feat in such a small town. When Casey's car breaks down on the way to an important interview, she's rescued by none other than Boone himself—on what was supposed to be his wedding day...
Boone Murphy was finally going to put Meadow Valley in his rearview mirror, even if that meant selling his business and leaving his family's horse ranch behind. It also meant leaving Casey Walsh. Except when it came time to say "goodbye" to his hometown and "I do" to his new life, he couldn't do it. Now he's back home and his only dream is winning back the girl he's always loved...

Holding out for a Cowboy is a fun, heartwarming, feel good romance and just brings their love full circle. ~ Amanda – Simply Love Books
Holding Out for a Cowboy launches the first in a new series and a return to the small town of Meadow Valley. The second chance story reunites high school sweethearts Casey Walsh and Boone Murphy when Boone rescues Casey from an auto accident and he looks like a runaway groom riding a tux on his motorcycle. It’s been 12 years since they broke up so long ago and they’ve kept a comfortable distance from one another, living and working in their small town. Casey hopes to jumpstart her cosmetology career and with his help she got to her interview in time. Now she just needs a way to pay for it. Boone tried to get married but he just couldn’t do it. Now he has to figure out a way to get back his auto shop. In the meantime, he’s working at his friend’s ranch and hopes this new friendship with Casey will be the start of something new.
I love second chance stories and Boone and Casey are able to get theirs after a few more bumps in the road. Starting anew as friends may also means taking a few more chances and live outside their comfort zone. With the help of their friends, which are a hoot with their antics, Boone reveals the progress he’s made with his personal growth and isn’t the same man he was as a teen. Casey and her parents also make strides in their relationships because it isn’t always easy to ask for help and keep a loved one in the dark. Casey and Boone have come a long way and the spark and love for one another never went away; it just needed a jumpstart. Fans of small-town romances will absolutely adore this story. Holding out for a Cowboy is a fun, heartwarming, feel good romance and just brings their love full circle.
