“UNTAMED COWBOY was ultimately a sweet story.”
~ Under the Covers

I think this was my first Maisey Yates book but I’ve been tempted to pick up her books for years now.  In my quest for trying to read cowboy romances this year, I couldn’t pass this one up.  I absolutely adored the premise of UNTAMED COWBOY.  Kaylee and Bennett have been best friends since high school.  They went to college together, both became veterinarians and now own a practice together back in their small town.  Kaylee’s crush is now a full blown obsession but Bennett has never seen her as anything more than his best friend.  But now it’s time for things to change or for Kaylee to move on with her life.

I’ll be honest, there were some bumps along the way for me.  I found some parts of the writing to be repetitive and I also thought that Bennett could come off as a bit of an asshole at times.  I guess he’s a typical clueless man but that also made me feel like he didn’t really see Kaylee as a love interest and maybe the outcome was out of convenience?  Obviously I didn’t feel like that all the time, but he did have his moments where I wasn’t so in love with him when it came to the relationship aspect.  What I did love about this was Dallas.  Bennett gets an unexpected surprise sometime into the book and everything about how that shook his life was so adorably sweet.  I loved how Dallas connected with Kaylee and how he fit into the family.

The one thing about cowboy romances, or any small town romance, is the family aspect.  The Dodge family is the perfect example of that.  This is the kind of thing that I love to read about in the summer!  The siblings are all different but you can feel the unity and the love.  They’re there for each other but also bust each others’ balls.

UNTAMED COWBOY was ultimately a sweet story.  Untamed?  I’m not sure if the title really fit.  I found Bennett to be the most bland out of the brothers without much needing to be tamed about him.  But while I can’t say I have much love for the hero, he did grow on me and I was happy to get to their HEA.  Will I continue with the series?   I could be tempted to read about another sexy cowboy from the Dodge family for sure because I thought Wyatt and Grant definitely have lots of potential.  We shall see.

About Maisey Yates

USA Today Bestselling author Maisey Yates lives in rural Oregon with her three children and her husband, whose chiseled jaw and arresting features continue to make her swoon. She feels the epic trek she takes several times a day from her office to her coffee maker is a true example of her pioneer spirit. In 2009, at the age of twenty-three Maisey sold her first book. Since then it’s been a whirlwind of sexy alpha males and happily ever afters, and she wouldn’t have it any other way. Maisey divides her writing time between dark, passionate category romances set just about everywhere on earth and light sexy contemporary romances set practically in her back yard. She believes that she clearly has the best job in the world.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.

His character seems like he might ruin the story for me. I don’t like the idea of not being sold on the romance by all involved.

Thanks for the review, I’m not a fan with an author is repetitive and romance doesn’t flow.
