Nicole Helm’s Rebel Cowboy is a genuine story with real-life issues. In order to get money to keep her ranch afloat, Mel Shaw takes on a job helping NHL Star Dan Sharpe getting his Montana ranch up and running. This contemporary western/sports romance is suitable for adult audiences.
Rebel Cowboy was a realistic and heartfelt novel. At times, I felt it dragged a bit, but I found it an enjoyable read. The characters are likeable. Mel is doing everything she can to keep her family's ranch running. She is dedicated and hard working. Dan is considering his life after hockey and decides to restore his grandparents' Montana ranch. He is smart. I like that he is not flashy. I like the llama. I also appreciated that he does what he feels is right for him and not what others expect him to do. The two characters have an appealing chemistry. The story has some interesting twists.
