That's when I saw him--the cowboy--across the smoky room.
I'll never forget that night. It was like a romance novel, an old Broadway musical, and a John Wayne Western rolled into one. Out for a quick drink with friends, I wasn't looking to meet anyone, let alone a tall, rugged cowboy who lived on a cattle ranch miles away from my cultured, corporate hometown. But before I knew it, I'd been struck with a lighting bolt...and I was completely powerless to stop it.
This isn't just my love story; it's a universal tale of passion, romance, and all-encompassing love that sweeps us off our feet.
It's the story of a cowboy. And Wranglers. And chaps. And the girl who fell in love with them.
A quick read but a cute one. Ree Drummond has made a name for herself as "The Pioneer Woman" and her salt-of-the-earth, down home recipes. But before her move to the Wild West, Ree was a high-heel-wearing, vegetarian, big city snob. What flipped her lifestyle 180 degrees? Love. And this is the story of that love.
This reads like a squeaky clean romance novel (I couldn't even tell when they first did more than kiss...) but it's all true. And very sweet. Ree falls like a sack of potatoes for her Marlboro Man and doesn't stop thinking about him from that moment on (exhausting what goes on in this woman's head, I tell you!). And her Marlboro Man is just as smitten.
