The Wedding Crasher and the Cowboy by Robin Bielman is an adorable, “rivals to lovers” story set in an amazing little town!
Crashing a wedding was not on Kennedy’s plans but when her ex and future groom has second thoughts, she has to help.
Maverick is responsible for his ranch so when he finds his old college nemesis, Kennedy, trying to ruin his business, he has to stop her and keep an eye on her. The thing is he likes what he sees.
Maverick and Kennedy used to antagonize each other in college but when they start spending time together, they find that they have more common things than differences. Their relationship is sweet and fun, but it has a time limit. Kennedy has to go back to her life as an ER doctor and Maverick needs to move forward leaving his past behind.
I loved Maverick as a character. He is solid, caring and smart. He has lost his ex girlfriend in a tragic way but you can see how he slowly moves on. Kennedy is curious, funny, strong but sometimes a little over the top. I liked how Maverick handled their rivalry with humor but Kennedy sometimes pushed too much and she was a little overdramatic towards the end.
The time they spend together and their dates are entertaining and great to read.
Also, I was really charmed by the small town life and the setting. The secondary characters are wonderful and I would love to see more of them.
My biggest problem is the wedding crashing theme. It’s a little unbelievable to rush to convince an ex to get married. It would have worked better if she was just a guest who ran into her old frenemy.
The Wedding Crasher and the Cowboy is a feel good story with an idyllic setting! This is a lighthearted love story, perfect for fans of uplifting small town romances!
