Jenna's Cowboy by Sharon Gillenwater ~ 5/5 stars + Favorite!

Jenna's Cowboy
Sharon Gillenwater
The Callahans of Texas series, #1

Revell -Publisher
About the book:
Can you ever get a second chance at your first love? Jenna Callahan Colby thought she was content. A partner on her father's successful ranch, she is surrounded by family and friends. But she never expected to see Nate Langley back in town--the first guy she ever noticed, the one her father sent away all those years ago. And she never thought the attraction they felt would be as strong as ever. Jenna's cowboy has some healing of his own to do, though, after two tours of duty in the armed forces. With the help of good friends, strong faith, and a loving family, he hopes to put the horrors of the past behind him--and become the man Jenna deserves.

My review:
This book will really touch you. Nate’s struggles with PTSD will make you think more about the people who risk their lives to defend our country. I had never spent much time thinking about the side-effects of war and the stress that a person would be under in those situations. Jenna’s Cowboy made me even more appreciative of people like Nate who so bravely fight for us. The patriotism in these books is truly inspiring. I loved all the characters in this book! Jenna may have been hurt in the past, but she is willing to try to love again. And Nate is all too willing to be the one to help her heart heal. I am definitely going to be reading the other books in this series.

Available January 2010 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
