In this brand-new series from award-winning author Rebekah Weatherspoon, a charming cowboy and his sleeping beauty find their modern-day happily ever after . . .
With a headline spot on a hit morning show and truly mouth-watering culinary skills, chef Evie Buchanan is perched on the edge of stardom. But at an industry party, a fall lands Evie in the hospital—with no memory of who she is. Scrambling to help, Evie’s assistant contacts the only “family” Evie has left, close friends who run the luxury dude ranch in California where Evie grew up. Evie has no recollection of them—until former rodeo champion Zach Pleasant walks into her hospital room, and she realizes his handsome face has been haunting her dreams . . .
Zach hasn’t seen Evie in years—not since their families conducted a campaign to make sure their childhood friendship never turned into anything more. When the young cowboy refused to admit the feelings between them were real, Evie left California, making it clear she never wanted to see Zach again. Now he refuses to make the same mistake twice. Starting fresh is a risk when they have a history she can’t recall, but Zach can’t bear to let go of her now. Can he awaken the sleeping beauty inside her who might still love him?
First time read from Rebekah and I couldn’t wait to start A Cowboy to Remember. I honestly couldn’t tell you if I’ve read a romance where one of the characters suffers from amnesia, so I jumped right in to see if it’s a trope I’d like or not.
I have to say that only after reading a couple chapters, Rebekah truly sucks you in with her writing. I simply couldn’t stop reading, but I did learn that I’m not really a fan of the amnesia aspect of Evie and Zach’s story.
Before I talk about how amazing Evie’s character was, I wanted to touch on Zach. I didn’t connect with him as much as I hoped. He actually wasn’t really my favorite and I had a million questions like why he stayed away from Evie for nearly 10 years. And after Evie’s horrific accident, he was so quick to swoop in and hope to pick up where they left off 10 years ago … yes, Evie has lost her memory and any recollection she has of Zach is that he pops up in her dreams. I wasn’t really okay with the way Zach went about things.
I absolutely loved Evie’s character, I can’t even imagine everything she was going through. Her reactions to losing her memory and just trying to grasp her new reality seemed very real to me. I was able to connect with her on the emotional front and just trying to figure who everyone was and what they meant to her before she lost her memory.
I did enjoy this story and can’t wait to read more from Rebekah! I can’t wait to read the rest of the series.
