In the tradition of Carolyn Brown, Jennifer Ryan, and Maisey Yates comes the fourth book in Sara Richardson's western contemporary romance series about sexy bull-riders.
Can this cowboy be tamed?
Everly Brooks is finally living her dream. Renting a farm in Topaz Falls, Colorado, is the perfect antidote to her high-stress life back in San Francisco. It's the ideal place to raise chickens, grow veggies, and run her farm-to-table restaurant. There's just one problem: her new landlord. Mateo Torres is a handsome-as-hell bronc rider who oozes charm, melts hearts-and plans to kick Everly off the farm . . .
Mateo has dreams, too. He'd bought that land as an investment, so he could take care of his mom and sisters, which means Everly has to go. Unfortunately for him, this former big-city girl is just as stubborn as the broncs he rides. When his trailer floods and forces him to move into Everly's farmhouse, things between them really start to heat up. Sure, living under the same roof might not be the best way to settle their dispute over the land. But when two rivals share everything-from heated words to scorching kisses-it's definitely the hottest.

Cowboy book boyfriend alert!!!
WOW!! Just WOW!! I love to find these kinds of stories, full of love, passion, awesome characters and one beautiful happily ever after!! True-Blue Cowboy captivated me with the beautiful soul of Everly, and the golden heart of Mateo. And I’m so happy with the outcome of their love story.
Everly was a lawyer back in San Francisco but her bright future was ruined and she was forced to start all over again. Three years later she is living a simple and quiet life in a small town in Colorado, running a farm and a cafe, and building a great and meaningful relationship with the people in town. One of her friends set her up with Mateo Torres, the sexy cowboy in town. And it was a disaster of a date—Well, kind of… But things got complicated when Mateo purchases the land where the farm, the house, and the restaurant is and he has plans very different from the plans Everly’s.
I cried and laughed and sighed with this book. Everly cares so much for her friends and the people in the town. She has found happiness and a true meaning in life in what she does in the farm and the restaurant. But she hasn’t completely moved on from what happened all those years ago in San Francisco—and her parents don’t help either, UGH—but Mateo *SIGHHHHH* came with his crazy plans and destabilized everything for her!! IN A VERY GOOD WAY!! But at first, it didn’t look like it, and that was what kept me stick to this book.
I loved the plot of True-Blue Cowboy, the characters were simply amazingly developed and the conflict in their story was greatly built and beautifully solved.

If your best friends had to pick four words to describe you, what would they pick?
It depends on the friend. Ty Forrester would call me relentless. Charity Stone would say I’m hardheaded. Levi Cortez always tells me I’m the most reliable one of the bunch. And my best friend—Everly Brooks—well…she’d call me sexy. Just kidding. I think she’d say I’m loyal.
What are you passionate about?
The people I love. I live for them. After that my greatest passion is competing on the back of a bronc.
Describe a typical Friday night.
When I’m not out on the circuit, my Friday nights belong to Everly. I take her out to dinner or cook for her because she’s always cooking for everyone else (and because I’m a true romantic). When we’re done with dinner, we do whatever we feel like doing. Sometimes we meet up with friends at the Tumble Inn and other times we go sit on the porch under the stars. After that we go to bed. But we never get to sleep early.
What are three things you enjoy doing in your free time?
I love helping out around the farm Everly started and will do anything she asks except for deal wih Walter the Duck. That’s all her. Riding isn’t just my job, it’s something that keeps me sane. In my free time I’ll take one of the horses out on a long ride up the mountain. And, as you’ll discover when you read my story, I love to dance.
What’s the last song you listened to?
Last night Everly and I danced to the song Meant to Be by Bebe Rexha (featuring Florida Georgia Line) on the front porch. It’s her favorite.
I recently read the novel Señales que precederán al fin del mundo (Signs Preceding the End of the World) by Yuri Herrera. It’s a powerful, mythical story about a young girl crossing the border from Mexico into the United States. It blew me away.
If you could go back in time and change one thing in your life, what would it be?
I would’ve gone looking for my brother sooner so we could’ve had the chance to make amends before it was too late.
What are you looking for in an ideal mate?
There’s nothing like a woman with an adventurous spirit, a huge heart, and a genuine confidence. My soulmate also happens to see the best in people and in the world, but she’s wise, too. And confident enough to let other people be who they are. Her long golden-brown hair and captivating smile could stop traffic, but she doesn’t pay any attention to how stunning she is. She’s real and genuine, not afraid to get her hands dirty but she likes to dress up sometimes too. She’s as multifaceted as a rare diamond and I’ll spend the rest of my life discovering every delicate angle.
