Date Published: 25th October 2018
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Rule #1: No Dating Cowboys.
A fake fiancé doesn’t count, right? Oh boy . . .
Amy Weaver is tired of her dad meddling in her love life. Fed up, she hires an actor to play the part of her fake cowboy fiancé when she goes home for her grandpa’s ninetieth birthday. Sure, Luke Jenkins has got looks, charm, and muscular legs, but this is business, pure and simple. Things are fine and dandy until she finds out he’s a real cowboy, not an actor. Now, she’s stuck between a rock and his chiseled jawline, falling faster than a sack of horseshoes. How the heck is Amy supposed to ignore the sparks between them and stick to her rule of not dating cowboys? All bets are off.

This is my first Rich Amooi book but it certainly won’t be my last! This really was a fun and food filled romcom with a good dose of humour.
There’s Something About A Cowboy came at the perfect time for me, as I’m suffering from a bit of winter fatigue, you know the days are short and dull and the nights are long and freezing, it’s easy to feel miserable but this book certainly cheered me up.
I’m going to admit something now, I’ve never read a book with a cowboy in it, ever! They’ve never really appealed to my but when I read the synopsis for this and saw the colourful and fun cover I had to read it (even though I’m meant to be taking a break from blog tours).
Amy is a great character, independent, clever and headstrong. Mix that with Luke who has the three Cs, charming, confident and cocky, well sparks are bound to fly!
Another thing I liked was Amy wasn’t the usual twenty to thirty year old heroine, she’s forty five and Luke is actually younger than her which made a change. My only real issue with the characters, was Luke seemed a bit too perfect, I would have liked to see him have a few more flaws.
It does follow the traditional romantic comedy storyline but Rich Amooi really makes it his own, with plenty of humour and a little swearing (shout out to the bull called Dip S**t, it made me giggle so much).
I’d recommend this to anyone who loves a great romantic comedy, perfect to banish those winter blues!
