Cowboy Karma (Cowboy Cocktail Series)

This was a first Mia Hopkins read for me. I love Cowboys and the plot of the book piqued my interest. Cowboy Karma here I come….
Harmony Santos has one of the crappiest days she’s ever known. On her birthday she is dumped by her long time boyfriend who also happens to be a doctor where she is employed. Can you say bonus? Taking pity upon her sad state her sister, Melody (I love the names of the Santos sisters) invites her out for drinks. Harmony takes her up on this offer forgetting that her sister is happily married along with all the other happy couples that are out enjoying themselves. That was candle on the crap cake of her birthday. Single, miserable, surrounded by jovial wedded bliss Harmony felt she was being punished. That was until she ran into one hot, sexy cowboy.
Lucky Garcia has had a crush on Harmony for as long as he can remember, he just wasn’t prepared to actually have to opportunity to make his fantasy dream girl come to life. Life hadn’t been easy for him or his family, but he worked hard and if there was one thing he was good at, it was loving someone. He was faithful, loved his family and he knew when he fell in love with “the one” he would love her hard. On the rodeo circuit he had yet to make it big. He had to provide for his family and he wanted Harmony, but he worried if he could be enough for her.
Life is short, there is never a good time for anything. Don’t be afraid to give. Don’t be afraid to say what’s in your heart. Don’t ever be afraid to love. (My favorite paraphrase ever.)
I really enjoyed the story that developed between Lucky and Harmony, watching the characters grow, but the book could have been longer. I would have loved to have known even more about Harmony’s life and work, perhaps some uncomfortableness at work around her ex.
Mia has an excellent voice for her characters so I was definitely craving more. With that being said, when I began reading Cowboy Karma I was unaware that it was part of a series. You can pick this book up and read it as a standalone and not feel like you’re missing out on the punchline, I did. You could also go back and read the first books in the series before picking up this one. I enjoyed it so I will be looking for other Mia Hopkins titles.
