Cowboy Up is a thrilling non-stop romantic ride. Dalton is a complete gentleman, full of compassion and warmth. His emotions reach down into his heart. I loved the character of Sierra. One can almost share in the pain she experiences, with her father throughout her life. I found the read captivating and full of life. The refreshing characters lift from the pages and jump into the reader's heart. CJ England fashions a wonderful story with a panorama that one can visualize. The way she composes the interaction with Sierra, and Dalton, is beautifully done. This poignant tale is one that hooked the reader from the first page and held on to the very last page.
