Author: Valerie Comer
Genre: Christian Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 8, 2020
Adam Cavanagh’s rodeo championship tastes like dirt after a competitor’s critical injury, but going home to his family’s Montana ranch isn’t much of an improvement. If not even the coveted trophy earns his stepfather’s respect, what will it take?
Riley Dunning’s quick thinking is all that’s keeping her body, soul, and principles together, but demanding a kiss from a hunky cowboy to deter the weirdo following her might be taking things too far… especially when the cowboy comes up with a risky plan that might offer them both stability. If it doesn’t backfire completely.
Will a fake engagement give Adam and Riley the leg up they each need, or will the cost to their hearts be too high? Because neither believes the other will want to marry them… for real.

Oh my do I love a good cowboy story. Maybe it’s because I’m from Texas but cowboys, ranches and romance make a great combination. I am excited about this new series and it promises to be a bumpy yet exciting time for readers. Adam is definitely a cowboy with his many successes in rodeos. It was hard to read about why he stopped what he loved doing. I think he blames himself a little for the accident that he witnessed. It was hard for him to see his friend injured without knowing if he was going to be okay.
The dynamics of Adam’s family is chaotic at times with a step father and step brothers. Adam has a plan to win back the ranch that was his dads but I knew right away trouble was ahead. Riley is in need of rescuing and running into Adam may be just what she needs. I did chuckle at the scheme they planned because let’s face it, deceiving someone is never good. Oh you can read the story and find out what Adam and Riley have planned but beware of the emotional tug on your heart. Yes I cheered for them to stop the charade and fess up. I wanted them to realize that only bad will come from lying.
I liked when Adam had a look at himself and realized he called himself a Christian but he sure wasn’t acting like one. Riley isn’t much better with her need to run away from her problems back home. I really liked how the author presented characters who were willing to be deceitful for monetary gain. They have a hard lesson in front of them and it makes for a great reminder that the “ the love of money is the root of all evil.”The author delivers a great story about forgiveness, integrity and love. I loved getting to know the characters in this series and can’t wait for the next installment.
I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion.

More from Valerie
Four years after I began publishing farm romances, I added my first cowboy romance series to the lineup. “It’s not that different,” I told myself and anyone who would listen. “Ranches are almost the same as farms. A few more horses, a few less random other animals!”
Ah, but cowboys are deemed more attractive than farmers! Maybe it’s their uniform. You know, a Stetson. Plaid snap-front shirts under denim jackets. Well-worn jeans. Cowboy boots. That combo looks better on a book cover than the stereotypical farmer in a straw hat, overalls, and rubber boots!
Whether focusing on cowboys, farmers, or gardeners, all of my green clean romances feature engaging characters, strong communities, and deep faith. Are the characters perfect Christians? Nope. No more than you and I are. There’s always room to grow.
In Marry Me for Real, Cowboy, the first story in my new Cavanagh Cowboys Romance, Adam decides a fiancée is just what he needs to impress his stepfather. Not that Adam wants to get married any time soon, but surely it won’t come to that! But… how long do you think it will take for him to realize that he’s living a lie and not trusting God to handle his future? What will his path be to resolve his lack of faith as well as move forward both in romance and in his relationship with his stepdad? You may have to read Marry Me for Real, Cowboy and find out!
