I was in the mood for a good cowboy romance. I have read amazing reviews for Maisey Yates’ previous books and Good Time Cowboy sounded like it would be right up my alley. I was expecting a light, fun, cowboy romance but what I got was so much more. Good Time Cowboy is a gorgeous story about two people with deep emotional scars with a palpable and deep connection to each other.
Lindy is a rigid divorcee vineyard owner partnering with the sexy owner of the ranch next door, Wyatt, to enhance both of their businesses. Somehow, Yates made Lindy both uptight and completely relatable. I loved Lindy and even though we have completely different backgrounds and personalities, I related to her on a personal level. Lindy is so self-reliant and contained, it was an absolute delight watching her open up.
Wyatt was an interesting character. He gives off the easygoing cowboy act but his demons were actually much more serious with bigger roots. I think his character development was pure gold if a little rushed at the end. My favorite part about him is his unwavering support and respect of Lindy as both a person and a businesswoman.
One of my favorite parts of this book was the more mature ages of the characters. Lindy and Wyatt are both well into their 30s and I felt like I was reading about adults. They both had established businesses and responsibilities, their relationship was important but not the only thing in either of their lives.
Overall this book was a delight and I can’t wait for the next book in the series. This was my first Maisey Yates novel and it sure won’t be my last!
