Cowboy Series

Release Date:  October 15th 2013

Crawley only had one dream in life; grow up and marry the boy next door, Jeremy
Henley. When she was twenty, her dream was crushed by her nasty, vindictive,
deceitful sister Kennedy. Unable to handle the hurt, Ava fled.

Henley is a Sky Cowboy in Australia’s Northern Territory. Along with his twin
brother, Jackson, he is Pine Creek’s finest catch. Jeremy doesn’t give a damn
about that, he only cares about the most beautiful woman he’s ever seen; Ava
Crawley. After years of waiting for Ava to show an interest in him, an
opportunity presents itself and Jeremy takes it. Then, Ava up and leaves for
France. No explanation. No goodbye. Nothing. She doesn’t come back for three
years, and when she does, Jeremy has a baby son.

Will Ava and Jeremy be able
to overcome the pain of the past and give their love a chance? Or, will Ava
lose her life just as she’s starting to live her dream?

A Review of Sky Cowboy by Kasey Millstead 
Reviewed by Wennie Conedy
3 out of 5 stars

Reviewer Note: An ARC copy of the book was provided in exchange for an honest review. Sky Cowboy follows the first book of the Down Under Cowboy series, Cowboy Town. Set in Pine Creek, a small town in Northern Australia, the book tells the story of two people who are strongly attracted to each other, yet can‘t seem to find the right time to get together.

Ava Crawley had a dream, and his name is Jeremy Henley. Little did she know that Jeremy’s dream mirrored hers. They had one memorable encounter, and Ava started to allow herself to hope that her dream may come true; until Kennedy speaks up. Shattered by Kennedy reveals, she packs her bags and leaves for France. When she returns three years later, she finds out that some things haven’t changed while others have had a dramatic change of circumstance. Will she allow the past rule her future, or will she find herself strong enough to stand up for herself, and fight for what she knows and feels is right.

Although part of a series, the book can stand alone, removing the necessity of reading the first book. Sky Cowboy is a light and quick read. There is some angst, but not overly so. The writing is crisp and clear. Ava’s character was fully developed – I understood her motives, reasoning and actions. I even understood Kennedy’s motivation. I had some difficulty understanding Jeremy. Though he claims that he has been in love with Ava for most of his life, he took his time in wooing her. In spite of this, he does redeem himself thus securing their happily ever after.

If you are looking for a short quick read, a little bit of angst, a hot Australian cowboy, a girl who discovers the independent and strong woman in her, this is the book for you.

“Hey, Jeremy,” I slur.  The alcohol was definitely bringing out my
inner bravado.

“Hey Ava.”
He smiles at me and I melt.  I
feel like I could slide right off the stool and pool on the floor in a big
alcoholic puddle.  “What’s going on?” He says
nodding towards the Patron.

“Nothing much.” I slur again and then use
my fingers to shove my tongue back in my mouth and wipe away any escaping drool
at the same time. 

“Want some company?”  He grins cheekily and all I can do is stare
at his mouth; hypnotized.  I’m pretty
sure my tongue is hanging out but I can’t do anything about it.  My reflexes are too slow and besides, Jeremy
is just too delicious.

He chuckles, snapping me out of my reverie,
and slides onto the stool beside me.

As we finish off the bottle of tequila
together, we start to flirt.  Harmlessly
at first, but then things start getting heated.
I shift in my seat as he blows in my ear and whispers something that I
can’t make out.  It doesn’t matter
though, it’s still hot as hell.

“I need to pee,” I slur.  Wobbling as I stand, I make my way slowly
outside, towards the ladies room.  Once
there, I use the facilities and try to give myself a pep talk.  I need to calm down.  Focus.
Sober up a bit so I can enjoy Jeremy and actually remember having this
time with him in the morning.  I wash my
hands and walk out, running smack bang into a hard wall of warm solidness.

“Sorry,” I giggle before looking up into
the hypnotizing clear blue eyes of Jeremy.
He grips me around the waist and pushes me back into the wall.  His hand travels down my leg, pausing at my
knee to lift up.  Automatically, I curl
my limb around his waist.  He leans in
and I smell his sweet, warm, alcohol induced breath as it mingles with mine for
a split second before he touches his lips to mine.  I moan involuntarily and then gasp as he
grinds his hardness against my softness.
His tongue sweeps in and teases mine in an erotic dance.  My hands dive into his soft chocolate brown
hair and I grip and tug causing a deep groan to rise from his throat.

“Get a room, Henley,” a voice calls as they
walk by.  I immediately drop my leg and
push him back slightly.  We’re both
panting heavily.  I try my hardest to
focus.  I’m so turned on its
unbelievable.  I would have let him take
my virginity right then and there if we hadn’t been interrupted.  But, we were.
I take a deep breath and stumble back inside ignoring him calling my
