ONCE A COWBOY by Linda Warren is a story overflowing with emotional twist and turns that grabs the reader from the first page and doesn’t let go until the end. I was completely taken over by the characters in this book I actually felt that I was in the story feeling everything Alex and Brodie were. I loved all the characters, even the secondary ones, because each person brought something unique to the tale making the story unfold with even more power. This is a wonderful book and one you don’t want to miss.
