One Fine Cowboy - Joanne Kennedy

His hears is as wild as the horses he trained...Nate Shawcross is perfectly content to spend his days training wild horses.  So when a beautiful greenhorn unexpectedly shows up for a seminar from the famous "Horse Whisperer" of Wyoming, all Nate wants to do is send her packing...  The last thing she expects is a lesson in romance... Graduate student Charlie Banks came to the ranch to learn about horse communication, but when she meets the ruggedly handsome cowboy, she starts to fantasize about another connection entirely... Nate needs to stay focused if he is going to save his ranch from foreclosure, but he can't help being distracted by the brainy and breathtakingly sexy Charlie.  Could it be that after all this time Nate has finally found the one woman who can tame his wild heart?

The dynamics between all of the characters that come to the ranch is great.  There are so many different personalities.  You have an old time cowgirl Doris that comes from her own ranch and has been around the block a time or two and takes no guff from anyone, just tells it like it is.  Then you have Phaedra, a teenager that is a little to in to her heavy eyeliner and black dress-code.  A gothic cowgirl, with a little chip on her shoulder and a daddy complex.  Bring in her dad, Taylor, a well known cowboy actor to round out the bunch of unlikely students, that become fast friends and help Nate and Charlie find their way not only away from trouble (by way of an ex), but to happiness and love, not only in each other, but in the ranch.

Notable Quote:
“I never thought I’d have to say this”, Charlie said. “Never in a million years.” She took a shaky, deep breath. “But—shut up Nate.” (Charlie says to Nate, and it is extremely funny cause she gripes at him almost the whole book cause he doesn't talk at all)

4 1/2 out of 5 is my rating for this book. I really enjoyed the characters and the differences that make them all so....human. A real feel good book that has some laugh out loud moments as well as some feel good moments. A definite must read.
