This is my honest review
Rating: 4 Stars - LOVED

Can’t Resist a Cowboy is one of those feel-good stories featuring a cowboy and a very sweet heroine. Levi Haywood came home from Afghanistan to work on his family’s ranch, Paint River Ranch. Carrie Lynn is back home in Greenbrook, Montana temporarily to visit her father.

Since their family ranches neighbor each other, Levi and Carrie grew up together. I loved that aspect of this story. Not only do they share a childhood history together, but they were also sweethearts. When Carrie turned 18, her father sent her to live with family in the city where she could receive better care for her health condition. At the same time, Levi went into the military. It’s been a few years, but seeing each other again brings back so many memories and unresolved feelings.

“Everything he’d done, and everything he’d do now, was for her benefit. Because, God, he probably still cared about her more than he should.”

Right from the beginning Elizabeth Otto shows both Levi and Carrie working through their personal struggles, as well as, their struggle to reconnect. It’s not so easy for either of them. Both are dealing with things physically and carry emotional pain with how things ended with them in the past. Levi and Carrie go through a lot of hardship, but they are also shown as two people who understand and lean on each other for support when it counts the most.

I haven’t read the previous books, but Levi’s brothers are in this one, and now I’m quite curious about them. With plenty of touching scenes and a slow build-up to a second-chance romance, Can’t Resist a Cowboy is a delightful read!
