Publisher's Summary

Bella Chatham will lose everything - her veterinary practice, her animal shelter, and even her home - if she can't find another source of income, fast. So when her best friend signs her up for the hot new reality television show, Can You Beat a Billionaire, Bella accepts the challenge and hopes against hope she can win the $10 million prize. If she doesn't, it's bye-bye pet clinic and shelter, bye-bye Chance Creek, Montana, and hello to marriage to the billionaire for a year! Evan Mortimer, billionaire, can't believe he's reduced to competing in a television contest to win a wife. Unfortunately, it's the only foolproof way to secure his position as head of Mortimer Innovations. At least he'll be able to dump his "spouse" at the end of the year; he's much too busy to be tied down to a country bumpkin cowgirl. Bella doesn't expect her adversary to be handsome - or funny, or compassionate - but Evan's all three, and he's proving a tough competitor, too. When they end up sharing a tent - and a sleeping-bag - her body betrays her with a longing so deep it cuts her to the core. Still, this cowgirl must stay strong. If Evan uncovers her secret fears, he'll use them to win the contest - and then he'll own her for a year. She'll be out of luck, out of cash, and stuck being Mrs. Mortimer until he kicks her to the curb. Too bad she can't decide which is worse - winning the show and losing Evan forever, or losing the show and only being his temporary wife. Evan can't believe he's falling for the one woman who doesn't want him. This cowgirl's not impressed by his money, his name, or his inability to sleep in a tent with her for an entire night, but every look and touch she gives him sends his desire through the roof. With a director determined to use his claustrophobia to make him look like a fool, and an adversary so sexy he can hardly see straight, he'll need all his savvy to come out on top.

Disappointed.....

I had high hopes for this book given I share the heroine's love of animals and the premise of the story was interesting. I don't like spoilers, but I will say that I found myself saying out loud, "Why is Bella so flaky and dumb?" There were just too many flip flops in her personality... It didn't come across as realistic. And supporting character, Madeline was downright rude, snarky and totally unrealistic. As a director, she would never keep her job being that rude and unreasonable. It takes a lot for me to write a negative review about a book, but this one had enough holes to make me do it. Also, the audio performance was not good. The narrator's cadence and penchant for dragging out syllables had the effect of nails on a chalkboard.

The Cowgirl Ropes a Billionaire

Would you consider the audio edition of The Cowgirl Ropes a Billionaire to be better than the print version?

Hearing it read out loud makes it more like watching a movie in your head.


What other book might you compare The Cowgirl Ropes a Billionaire to and why?

This one is very similar to all the other books in this series.


What about Amy Rubinate’s performance did you like?

It was good. She was able to perform each character very well by having a different voice for each one and was very consistent with this.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Evan and Bella finally realize their feelings was a great scene. It was like "finally"! However, when Evan went to Bella's shelter was a great moment. Don't want to spoil it for those who haven't read the book.


Any additional comments?

I've enjoyed this series and getting to know the many characters. I've got the next one ready to listen to.
