All that just for the heroine Evie to get her memory back and leave…. man listen.

I loved the idea of this story, black cowboys in California OWNING their own ranch…yes more of that please.

BUT, this romance… it was boring as the day is long. I read no chemistry between Zach and Evie. I mean for the most part, the sexual tension between them was cute and kind of hot but I just wasn’t interested in whether they would end up together.

I feel like the story took a turn to dull and monotonous as Evie was on the ranch trying to gain her memory back. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed the interactions between her and Zach’s family but for me, it bogged down the romantical parts of the story and wasn’t that what we were here for? Eh, I guess. This also leads me to a gripe I have with the story in general. Why the heck pretty much all of Zach’s family was in contact with Evie when Zach wasn’t. Like I get not wanting to deal with a man when he broke your heart… Oh, I understand that on the real, I do. But I just thought that was some weird family flexing going on when Zach found out AND then for his own family to be treating him like he purposefully did what he did towards Evie pissed me off. Like listen, if my family can’t support me in my screw ups, then I wants no part of them. To me, it just wasn’t realistic, and I didn’t like it.

Also, at times during reading, I felt like the author wanted us to know these characters and the story surrounding them was a Black story. I get it but it felt at times a bit forced and not authentic.

All and all, this read as a first in the series kind of book and that’s fine...and... we do get a HEA. I’ll invest in the other books as there is room for progression in Cowboys of California.
