Review- The Cowboy Singer by Paula Tiberius

The Cowboy Singer
Paula Tiberius

April Connors figured her love life was on hold now that she was about to have a baby on her own. Meeting country singer Jimmy Wick may have made her giant belly flip, but she was filing him under a big “as if.” No man in his right mind would fall for a gal this pregnant. Jimmy was not in his right mind. His ex-wife was petitioning for full custody of their four-year-old daughter and his only saving grace besides playing music was his new ‘friend’ April. But she had just been knocked up, dumped and stranded, and was hellbent on getting her life together just as his was falling apart. They were both caught off guard by the unstoppable romance that would sweep them off their feet.

April moves home to Austin and the safety of her grandmother's house an almost broken woman. She is six months pregnant, alone, afraid, and completely unprepared for motherhood. Just when she thinks she couldn't be more confused with where her life should head... she is introduced to Jimmy Wick. 

Jimmy is a hard working country music artist, divorced father. When he meets April she is like a breath of fresh air in his life. He is tired of fighting with his ex about seeing Summer, his daughter, and just wants to be a good father.

As Jimmy and April finally decide to give in to their attraction, everything that could possibly happen to tear them apart does happen. Avery's father decides to show up on April's doorstep and Jimmy must decide if me should move from Austin and follow Summer halfway across the country.

The Cowboy Singer is a delightful debut novel by Paula Tiberius. She just drops you right into the action. The story line is straight forward and to the point which can be a refreshing change from the over driven plots with too many twists. The writing is simple and with minimal sex I am inclined to call it a Mature YA. It was a fun, captivating, entertaining, and not thought provoking; which can be a good thing when you just want that good, easy, escape my life for a few moments book. 

I'm giving The Cowboy Singer by Paula Tiberius 4/5 Stars.
