    1. Free on Kindle, glad I didn't pay for it--- Uneven at best, it's strangely paced, and the leads are off-putting (i.e the 'banter' ain't funny) no matter what situation they are in. Plus, the author likes to name-drop the strangest products and movies's like she mixed up her book notes with her shopping list.

    2. One Lucky Cowboy (Lucky) Carolyn Brown  A woman on the run. A granny with a plan and a suspicious yet attractive man. One Lucky Cowboy is not an average Carolyn Brown novel. Jane and Lucky are complicated. Love may not be on their minds but Granny Nellie make sure is on her agenda. Jane has danger on her mind. Lucky has suspicion in his heart. Nellie has romance on her mind. Who will be the victor in the end? Ms. Brown brings her signature humor to the table while cooking up her own personal bl [...]

    3. I have big, big problems with this book. It took only one chapter for this story to go from pretty good to now I’m not so sure how good it is. Then things really fell apart.I liked the beginning of this book, meeting the characters, learning about why the heroine is hiding from her fiance. I didn’t even mind the sniping and snipping between the hero and heroine. In the beginning anyway. That’s another story that will come later. The main problem with this book for me that started early is [...]

    4. Where to begin.while there are scenes of this book that are amusing and somewhat entertaining, there is a great deal more of it that is just plain awful. The dialogue is stilted and unnatural. What I am assuming is supposed to be banter between the main characters doesn't sound like the way two adults with two brain cells to rub together would talk. There are some genuinely amusing moments between Jane and Slade, but then the very next moment, there are inane catfights (in parking lots and Walma [...]

    5. DNF@20%I’ve read and enjoyed a few Carolyn Brown books over the last few years, but sadly this was not one of them. I had no idea this was a reissue of an older book (2009), but that wouldn’t have stopped me from reading, since I’ve already enjoyed another in this series – Talk Cowboy to Me.No, it was the messy writing and awful characters that did that. Too many POV shifts in every scene, new characters being dumped in a heap on my head without any lead up or introductions, time jumps t [...]

    6. This was truly a wonderful story. I can’t remember the last time I chuckled while reading a book. This is a story of mystery, intrigue and family. It does have a happy ending, but only after many twists and turns. Intimacy is done well and tastefully. I would say it could have been condensed some but overall I would recommend it.

    7. I did not expect to love this book as much as I did. In fact, I had no idea what to expect when I began it. It looked good, had cowboys, and a woman on the run from an assassin. Seemed interesting. What I ended up with was the cowboys and the assassins, plus so much more.Quick bit about the story: Jane leaved right before her wedding when she discovers that her fiance is really an assassin hired to kill her before her 25th birthday when she will inherit her family's oil business. She gets off a [...]

    8. This might have been a good book and was not without charms--but there were so many things about it that were just so unlikable. First of all, I really didn't like Jane--she kept saying she wasn't white trash , but then behaved like nothing but--really annoying. There seems to be a contest among romance writers lately to see who can come up with the most obnoxious heroine--if Ms. Brown didn't win, she surely made it to the semi-finals. The cat fights with the alpha male's other trashy girlfriend [...]

    9. I definitely had read this book before, but didn't remember until it was too late. I read of couple of reviews prior who complained about the first half v second half of the book and that the flow wasn't there, I say: romance novels are, as a rule, governed by convoluted circumstances. This book was certainly convoluted, and the beginning was fun-I enjoyed the characters' banter and chemistry, but really it lost me at the end-the last few chapters were pretty terrible, and I ended up actually no [...]

    10. I would have given this book more start because of the story line - but just could not bring myself to do it. I will start by saying that the "idea" of this book is a good one. The plot would have been good if the author could have not jumped and repeated so much. Actually it got pretty annoying and I don't understand why I didn't just go with my gut and put it down! The language was awful! I don't understand why authors seem to think that they need to use bad language so much, actually I might [...]

    11. A very lacklustre romance. The dialogue was stilted, the situations incredible, and the book was at least 50 pages too long. The characters were very one-dimensional and the number of coincidences and near-misses were so contrived, it was a struggle to finish reading this book. Highly UN-recommended don't waste your valuable time!

    12. My favorite characters of the trilogy are Ellen and Nellie. Funny old ladies. Slade was a bit of an ass and Jane wouldn't put up with that. Which is great, I've noticed a lot of books have a hero that's an ass but still gets the girl to fall for him. What's wrong with a nice man?

    13. This book isn't really worth the time you take to read it. The plot is a little stunted and doesn't flow well. The writing is ok, very repetitive. The chemistry between the two lovers is good. But its so hot and cold and hot and cold it gets annoying.I would say don't read it.

    14. Maybe I’m being mean, but I think I know why I got this one for free. It was like reading a Harlequin story written by a six-year-old. Blah.

    15. At the middle of the book the story line got to be pretty ridiculous. The two stars are for Nellie & Ellen who made me chuckle a couple of times. Good thing it was a free kindle book.

    16. This book was terrible. I had a hard time even finishing it. There were just too many over the top silly conversations.

    17. Jane is a sassy independent gal with tons of spunk who meets her match in gruff, straight-talking cowboy Slade."One Lucky Cowboy" was first published in 2009 and has been updated just a touch. The first third of the book seems to include as many colorful Southern sayings as Brown could cram in.However, as a native Texan who delights in the descriptive turn of phrases, I found them to be a bit much at the start of this one! And, at one point wondered if one or two had been thrown in at the last m [...]

    18. 3.5 starI was pulled right into this story. The story has laughs, pain, anger, secrets, and heartbreak. If you have not read the below I would recommend reading those books(s) firstLucky in Love (Lucky, #1)This is Jane and Slade (Lucky Slade)’s story. Jane is on the run from her ex fiancé who happens to be a paid assassin. She never planned on staying in one place long. When she meets Nellie who is an older woman that needs help on her ranch Jane agrees to stay and help out. Jane knows she do [...]

    19. Jane Day rolls into North Texas on a Greyhound bus and ends up getting a job at a local ranch. Nellie Luckadeau takes Jane in to be a cook and helper at the Luckadeau ranch. Her grandson, Slade, is sure that his grandmother Nellie has made a big mistake in hiring Jane. He's afraid that Jane is a drifter, thief, or just a dishonest person. Jane is really running away from her ex-fiance and stepfather who had a devious plan that was uncovered literally right before the wedding. Now Jane has to sta [...]

    20. Nellie picks up a woman at the bus stop and hires her to help her on the Double L Ranch. Once they get there Slade, has another idea and tells his grandmother she is a con artist. No matter what Slade says ,Jane Day is staying for the whole 6 weeks. She is on the run.They each fight like cats and dogs with a few happy times in-between. The bickering between the two gets annoying a few times but it moves the story up a bit. They are doing to push each other’s buttons. What I liked best is watch [...]

    21. I received this book via Netgalley and this is my honest take on this book.While I enjoy the writing of Carolyn Brown, this is not one of my favorite books. It's an older book and her writing style and character development has vastly improved since the original publishing of this book.The continual nit picking and bickering that goes on between the couple is over the top. I take it that this couple enjoyed the bickering that went on between them, but it's not for me. While the story line was go [...]

    22. Well, this is a book that I feel failed to live up to it's potential. What should have been a storyline full of pent up passion, humor and a slow simmering romance fell flat. I can enjoy a couple that bickers and spars with each other but this was TOO MUCH! The way that the hero carried on in this book turned him into a real jerk and I never felt he was sorry for any of it and this made me really dislike him. There where some humorous moments in the book from secondary characters. These were tru [...]

    23. I really enjoyed this story, not sure if it's a rewrite or not as old reviews were so diverse.Jane is on the run from her ex and stumbles into some good luck and a happy new home. She and the cowboy clashed like crazy, their banter hilarious. She's not a simpering needy woman but a little spitfire that he doesn't know what to do with.Great bit of suspense in the latter half of the book, wondering how it would work out kept me glued to my kindle.Great story, amusing characters, all round I recomm [...]

    24. ARC - I voluntarily offered to review this book with no obligations and my opinions are honestJane found out that her fiance is a hired assassin.Of course, Jane run as fast as she could.Slade thinks that Jane is just trying to swidle his grandmother.Sparks fly, and now they have to find out if there is more than just some sparks.I loved the storytelling + the charactersThe storytelling + the character's build were awesome!

    25. This book will touch all your emotions. It is funny, exciting, romantic, scary, and full of surprises. I loved the banter between Slade Luckadeau and Jane Day aka Ellacyn Jane Hayes. Carolyn has written another winner that will make you not want to put the book down. I also liked Slade's grandmother, Nellie. What a fun character. I received an advanced copy of this book and I willingly chose to write an honest review.

    26. Being a fan of Carolyn Brown I enjoyed One Lucky Cowboy very much. Slade and Jane are like oil and water. The bantering between them is non stop some to the point of being very humorous. Their road to a happily ever after is bumpy and filled with suspense. This is a great standalone cowboy romance that will keep a smile on your face and the pages turning.

    27. A author who knows how to write a cowboy story. I found this to be well written and perfectly paced pulling me in from the start. One I didn't want to put down. Jane is a spitfire that only a cowboy like Slade could love regardless of their backgrounds. Twist and turns to keep your interest. You will not go wrong on getting this book.

    28. Jane Day is on the run from the men in her life, who want her dead. When she comes to live (hide) on a ranch, Slade Luckadeau is having none of it. The chemistry and banter between the two main characters is fun to watch ignite and I genuinely enjoyed this book! Keeps you on your toes all the way to the end, and even then you'll want to read it again!

    29. I'd have given this five stars had the author paid more attention to detail. It's the inconsistencies that robbed this story of that rating. I did not like having to go back and search for an earlier detail just to make sure that I'd paid attention.
