It takes true grit to build a billion-dollar dynasty like the Ford family ranch. But when it comes to finding love, all it takes is one handsome cowboy to steal a woman’s heart in Cowboy Stole My Heart by Soraya Lane. 

As one of the heirs to the River Ranch fortune, Mia Ford is practically Texas royalty. But that doesn’t mean she’s some pampered princess. She can saddle up and ride a horse as well as any man, even a hard-working cowboy like Sam Mendes. For years, she’s harbored a crush on the strong, silent horseman. But how can she make a move when she’s his boss?

Sam Mendes is through with love—or so he thought. Still recovering from a breakup, he’s doing everything in his power to resist Mia Ford. It’s bad enough she’s the kind of beauty who drives men wild with desire. It’s even worse she’s got him so worked up, aching to kiss her lips, when he’s supposed to be working her ranch. Is this lovestruck cowboy willing to risk losing his job—and breaking his heart—to win the girl of his dreams?

So the first book of 2018 that I got stuck into was Cowboy Stole My Heart by Soraya Lane, is a contemporary Western romance, and is also the first book in the River Ranch series, and I grabbed it because mainly because of the storyline, but also because I love a good Western.

The story is centered around horse trainer Sam Mendes and ranch owner Mia Ford, but this story is not just about cold feet, and rich families, this book also covers child abuse and survival, and so many other painful things. It's also about trust, admitting when you are wrong, and surprises.

I though the story was okay, but the flow was a little slow at times, and I found the lagging a little frustrating. I wasn't taken with either character, and found them to be annoying at one point or another throughout the story, the plot didn't overwhelm me, but found it likeable nevertheless.

I give Cowboy Who Stole My Heart 3.5 stars


Her eyes were dancing, her lips were parted, her hands were slowly dropping away from his chest. But instead of closing the distance between them, instead of hungrily tasting her lips against his, he took her hands, stepping back and squeezing them.
“You take all the time you need,” he said instead, hearing the husky note of his own voice. “I’ll be out here.”
He walked out, ducking back through the door and out into the bright sunlight again. Goddamn it! What the hell had he just done? He’d always prided himself on being able to keep his shit together, and he’d let himself get way too close to Mia.
