GOOD TIME COWBOY Synopsis:
In Gold Valley, Oregon, forbidden desire just might turn into the love of a lifetime…
When Lindy Parker lost her cheating husband, she gained a vineyard. She’ll do anything for Grassroots Winery, including teaming up with the hottest devil she knows, rancher Wyatt Dodge. Wyatt is her ex’s friend and has an ego as big as the bulls he rides. But in spite of that, disciplined Lindy has always wanted him…
Lightning struck Wyatt Dodge the first time he saw Lindy Parker. But there were two problems with that: she was married to his friend, and Wyatt doesn’t do strings. But now Lindy is free, and the two of them can finally explore the heat that’s burned between them for so long. But can Lindy make this good time cowboy decide on forever?

SASCHA DARLINGTON’S REVIEW
If you’re looking for an intelligent read with all of the feels, check out Good Time Cowboy by Maisey Yates, the latest entry in the Gold Valley series.
In the previous two novels, it was apparent that Wyatt and Lindy were going to come together at some point. They seemed literally combustible, rubbing each other the wrong way, exchanging barbs.
In Good Time Cowboy, however, they become fully realized characters, both of whom are dealing with a lot of baggage and both of whom have ruled out future marriage–Lindy because she was hurt by her divorce and Wyatt because he thinks he understands himself well enough to know that he wouldn’t want to commit to marriage.
Lindy and Wyatt begin working together on a project that would attract attention to Lindy’s Grassroots Winery and Wyatt’s dude ranch, Get Out of Dodge. The more they work together the more obvious it is that they will have to deal with the unspoken attraction they both felt five years earlier when a single glance made them feel something they’d never felt before. Because Lindy was still married, they never acted on the intense moment.
Good Time Cowboy is everything you would want in a cowboy romance—heat, characters who are more than just walking, talking sexual projectiles, and situations that will make you laugh and situations that will have tears streaming down your cheeks. The drama felt real as did the characters. Yates obviously cares about these characters and gave them believable backstory so that they felt like real human beings with real, unapologetic foibles.
While Good Time Cowboy is the third in the Gold Rush series, it can be read as a standalone and works amazingly well as one.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
She wasn’t sure what was worse: letting everyone know just what an idiot she was, or letting them continue to believe that she was a heartless gold digger.
She had a feeling that public opinion on her was split down the middle.
But Wyatt thought that Damien was an idiot.
Which was perhaps why she felt even the tiniest bit charitable toward him. Was perhaps why she wasn’t so completely opposed to going on a trail ride with him today.
She ruminated on that while she got dressed. She found a pair of nice jeans—much more casual than she would normally wear—and a dark-colored button-up top that wouldn’t show any dirt she might pick up during the ride.
She pinned her blond hair back in a low bun and looked at her reflection critically. She was hardly recognizable as the person she used to be. The person she’d been before she had started dating Damien.
She was sleeker now. Much more sophisticated.
She used to be proud of that. The distance she had put between herself and what she’d been. Now, it felt a little bit like a poisoned chalice. After all, she was partly who she was because of Damien. And she… In the end, she despised what he stood for. What he could allow. What had been acceptable to him.
He had asked her one time to forgive him. Had told her that she was making a big mistake throwing their marriage away over a physical relationship.
He had said that sex didn’t matter.
But sex had mattered when she’d been a twenty-year-old virgin, cautiously giving him her body. He had said that it meant the world then. And that even though he had been with a couple of other women they didn’t matter, not in light of what sex between them meant. Because he’d said that with her it had been love. It had been everything.
After being married to the man for ten years she was supposed to believe that sex could also be nothing. As long as it was shared with someone else. Even though he had made vows to her.
She had wanted to scream. She had wanted to cry. To let her inner trailer park out, throw something at him, call him a string of foul names. But she hadn’t been able to. She’d been frozen. Frozen inside the body, inside the image that they had created together.
She hadn’t shed a single tear. Not then, not after.
She had simply told him no. That there was nothing left for them. That there would be no future for the two of them. Not after a betrayal like that.
He had gotten angry after that. He had blamed the dissolution of their marriage on her.
And after that…he had told her there was no other chance to get back with him. That he was leaving her for the other woman. That he was in love with her, and it didn’t mean nothing. That she was the most important relationship in his life.
