Kyraryker’s quotes

"She thought it over, but couldn’t see any immediate loopholes other than the threat of her inner slut emerging, and she could darned well control that little bitch."— Susan Elizabeth Phillips

The Cajun Cowboy - Sandra Hill

"It never occurred to me that you would cry over me."

"And why is that?" she asked contrarily. Clueless… the man is clueless. I cried a river over you, baby. "Do you think you're the only one who was hurt over our breakup? Do you think you can holler at me, and my feelings won't get hurt? Do you think I don't feel bad that you feel bad? Do you ever even goddam think?"


This quote is perfect, because especially the hero, our main couple's relationship suffered from a lot of miscommunication and misunderstandings. If they had taken the time to think or talk, they could have fixed things pretty early, was mildly annoying. But really, where is the fun in reading about well adjusted people? ;)


If Cajun cowboys are your thing (and if they're not, the description of this hero will make you want them to be) then this is pretty close to a must read. The humor crosses over to slapstick a couple times, which is not my favorite, but not overly hokey. I was also not a fan of the characters saying something and then a few sentences of their  inner thoughts (most of the hokey humor can be found here) immediately following. This broke up the flow of the story for me. This is a little older but I think it has aged well, no problems there. 

The leads had hot chemistry and I'll never tire of reading and thinking about our hero in his scuffed boots, tight wranglers, snap button cowboy shirt, and beat up cowboy hat.
