I was given Nobody's Cowboy by Net Galley for an honest review.Serena moved to Montana, with her beloved animals, to get away from a cyber stalker. She has a new start, a new job and her wonderful animals that all she needs, at least that is what she thought until she met Austen Zabrinski. He has his own troubles but they are easy to forget when he is with Serena and her animals.I was rather excited to read Nobody's Cowboy, I mean the cover made the book seem like it was worth the time and the b [...]
I got this free from .I downloaded a bunch of new books. A few of the reviews said this was a decent read. I got about 73% into the book and I had to abandon it. The book starts off with Austen getting stuck in the field and he walks to Serena's house, his new neighbor. Austen was a douche from the start. Austen lives on a family owned farm, hiding out and pretending to be a cowboy. The author never really took the time to fully try and explain the circumstances as to why he chose to leave the b [...]

Austen Zabrinski's might own a ranch, wear a cowboy hat, and ride a horse, but he is miles away from being a cowboy. Having bought the ranch as a tax-incentive and political show-piece, the place has turned into his safe haven as his world came crashing down. Trying to pull himself up and decide what to do next, Austen's life takes an unexpected turn when he meets his hot, new, alpaca-breeding neighbor, Serena James. Inexplicably drawn to the strong and fiery beauty, Austen can't help but wonder [...]
I really liked this book at the beginning. I thought that it was a great love story between two great characters. I liked how they met and got to know each other, it really did seem like they were meant to be together. Unfortunately, the book lost my interest about halfway. I did finish reading it, but was kind of disappointed; I was expecting more. It got a little boring because nothing substantial (or really interesting) happened. For example, someone in the book has a stalker. I thought that [...]
***I was given an ARC in exchange for my honest opinion***We first met Austen Zabrinski in Cowgirl Come Home, (book #2 in the Montana Born Fair series and also book #1 in The Big Sky Mevericks series ).Austen is Paul's brother and I didn't like the way he treated Bailey and to be honest, I didn't like him at all and I wasn't sure how I'll feel about him as a hero of a book but I'm happy to say that he redeemed himself in Nobody's Cowboy.Austen Zabrinski moved back home to Marietta, Montana after [...]
Austen Zabrinski has come to his ranch in his hometown of Marietta to escape the fallout of the scandal threatening his political career. He has the ranch and all the trimmings, but has mainly used it as a "boys" vacation in the past, and will be the first to admit he is not a cowboy. Serena James has to scramble for a new place when funding the ranch she planned on buying falls through too close to the arrival of her Alpacas. Paul Zabrinski's ranch (next door to Austen's) fits the bill perfectl [...]

While riding, fate steps in and he's at his neighbor's place asking for help.Serena's starting over with her alpaca breeding business, hiding from a cyber st [...]

I was so excited to see that Austen got his own story, I thought he was such a "PITA" , when we first met him in Cowgirl Come Home. I just knew there was something true buried inside him. When he first met Serena, "Serene", there was an immediate chemistry between the two. While reading this story my family was wondering why I was laughing so hard." Communal toiletAusten is redeeming himself already." I really enjoyed learning so much about the alpaca breed.This is first book in the Big Sky Mave [...]
I loved this story, The cute Alpaca's, the ranch life , the family what they were like when they were kids and than as adults, oh and yes the hot romance, and how the storys end is wrapped up, no cliff hanger here, but I do admit it really made me want to read the rest of the series to find out what happens with Austen's sisters. And I just have to read more from this author I love her style of writing. I would recommend it to all who love to read romance and don't mind a little humor thrown in. [...]
Loved this story!! Austen Zabrinski has returned to Marietta to lick his wounds after his political career he had worked so hard for blew up. He doesn't know what his future holds but for now he is content hiding out on his ranch. Serena James came to Marietta for a fresh start and get away from a stalker. When she meets Austen there is an immediate attraction but his current notoriety won't help her stay under the radar. This is a fun sexy story that was very entertaining. The writing and story [...]
I like the family featured in this Big Sky Mavericks series, and I'm looking forward to sister Mia's story.Austen is a great beta hero. He analyzes everything, and isn't one for jumping in---although he jumped into intimacy with Serena fast enough!I loved the alpacas in the story, and ended up watching alpacas and baby alpacas on YouTube. A fun read, just wanted a bit more, which isn't unusual with any novella.
This was a fun story to read. Serena and Austin made a great couple, but the Alpaca's were pretty great too. Serena is trying to hide from a stalker, and Austin is trying to hide from a political scandal. The way they interacted with her Alpacas was really touching as well.I highly recommend this story. It was fun reading it. I will probably be reading it again just to experience the Alpaca birth scene another time.
SPOILERS BELOWLost a star because every character in the book coerced the heroine into meeting her biological mother who had been stalking her online. No one respected this woman's right to not speak to someone who had terrified her into moving several states away. Making the whole thing seem like a big misunderstanding really pissed me off. Online stalking deserved to be taken more seriously than that.
I absolutely loved Nobody's Cowboy! I wasn't fond of Austen when we met him in Cowgirl Come Home. He did completely redeem himself pretty fast in this book though. Austen and Serena had an instant attraction to one another that really held my interest throughout the book. I also enjoyed how they bonded over the alpacas. I thought the book was well written and flowed really well.
I really enjoyed Nobody's Cowboy. I was surprised at how much I liked Austen Zabrinski. And I found the matching with Serena James was a perfect fit. I may have liked both characters individually but I think that as a pair they were irresistible. Nobody's Cowboy had me laughing and smiling while reading and rooting for Austen and Serena to get their happily ever after.
ChangeJust couldn't get into the story. I was kinda bored with the story. It was a okay read from the beginning.
read/review for a honest opinion for tuleLoved this book. enjoued the characters and dialogue. looking forward to reading more by this author.
Austen Zabrinski and Serena's romance. She raises alpacas and he is recovering from a nasty political scandal in Helena,MT. Even though exonerated from wrong-doing he decides not to return to his old lifestyle. He & his twin sister, Mia are planning to set up a lawyer shop in town with Mia concentrating more on people cases and AZ on financial ones. The story had a great start but fizzled a bit for me by the end.
EnjoyableWell written interactions among the siblings and the friends and neighbors. Not over the top sugar coating or perfection, just some real life thinking, with those close strong to butt in.
Love this storySerena and Austin come from two different lives. They are both at a struggling point when they meet. They work so well together. His family is so wonderful and she blends well with them. Love them and the families.
ReviewI loved this story and the characters but I read this story after the last book. It is a great stand alone story.
A Great Read!!I enjoyed this book very much. I loved the characters and the story. I recommend it to all. So don't wait get started on it today!!!!!
Nobody's Cowboy by Debra SalonenAusten Zabrinski looks the partHe’s got the ranch, the boots, the hat and even a few head of cattle, but everybody in Marietta, Montana, knows the former golden boy of Marietta High is a wealthy politician, not a cowboy. And even though that nasty scandal in Helena might have knocked him down a notch or two in the polls, what kind of a fool would trade access to the halls of power in Helena and a Harvard law degree for a ranch in western Montana? Possibly one wh [...]
This is another story in the superb Big Sky Mavericks series and I have loved every one that I’ve read - this is no exception! Whilst the stories have many of the same characters appearing in them, they each contain their own romance so it isn’t essential to read them in order as the stories make sense on their own. That’s actually a good thing as for some reason I had missed reading this, the second story in the series, but had read many of the others already!The stories are set in Mariet [...]
Serena James wasn’t a loner, really. She just grew up on a farm, homeschooled with her adopted family. It did teach her though that she knew honesty. Also that she didn’t have time or energy for liars or fakes. Life has a way of throwing curve balls at you though and when she gains a stalker she runs with her Alpaca’s to Montana and it’s there she is going to start her Alpaca farm. Austin Zabrinski was always in the limelight. There was nothing he liked better, after all he was the Harva [...]
