Utah Davies is a recluse by choice, shunning his family and denying the ranch that needs his care. His personal life is a broken fence-line of past failures, neglected relationships, and The One that got away. After his father’s death, Utah is summoned home and faced with a secret in the form of a dozen or so more siblings he—and the family—had no idea existed. A clause in the will states he must find the family scattered across the country and unite them all for the reading. Trouble is, he has no clue where to begin.

Until he comes face-to-face with the old flame that burned his heart to ash.

In the July of their love, journalist Caroline Wilks refused elopement with Utah. After that, she made a series of bad decisions starting—then ending—with a nightmare marriage to a drunk. But when hunky bad-boy Utah struts back into her life, the only peace from the soul-deep throb she’ll get is between him and a mattress. He refuses to believe she’s nothing more than a hard-nosed journalist known for digging up more dirt than the family coon dog, but she knows better—or does she? And how can Caroline take the time to help Utah find his scattered family when she has a feature story due by the end of the month? Maybe the human interest piece is standing right in front of her in the dark, brooding cowboy.

My Review:

The book Almost a Cowboy was a little different it did not hold my interest as much.  Probably because the characters Utah and Caroline were having sex every time they got together.   I did enjoy the story line and that held my interest.

Utah was brought back to his family ranch to hear the reading of the will.  He was the only one that could hear what the lawyar had to say because he knew a secret that his dad had.

Caroline was Utah's fiancee back when they were young.  They were going to run away together but Caroline did  not show up.

Em Petrova is a wonderful writer and I enjoyed the book.   I give this book 4.5 stars. Only because I had skim over the sexual parts.

Em Petrova lives in backwoods Pennsylvania, where she raises four kids and a Labradoodle puppy named Daisy Hasselhoff and pays too damn much for utilities. She loves to write gritty characters with lots of heart and is well-known for scorching, panty-soaking erotic romance.
