Promise Me, Cowboy by CJ Carmichael

Promise Me, Cowboy (Copper Mountain Rodeo)


Sage Carrigan never meant to be the other woman. Unfortunately, bronco rider Dawson O’Dell neglected to mention he was married the night he invited her to his bed after they’d both placed first in their rodeo events. When his wife walked in on them – Sage was deeply hurt and humiliated. 

After an accident in the ring the next day, Sage decides she’s quitting the rodeo–and cowboys—to become a chocolatier in her hometown ranching community, Marietta, Montana. 

She’s doing just fine, but then Dawson shows up —five years later, with a little girl in tow. He’s here for the Copper Mountain Rodeo hoping to win big. But he’s also got plans of settling down with his daughter and buying a house—the very same one that Sage has been dreaming about. 

He says he’s here for her and he’s making lots of promises. But can he keep them?


Promise Me, Cowboy was too short. I knew where it was heading and it wasn't going too bad, but then it just all of a sudden resolved everything and ended.

Sage fell for Dawson when she was on the rodeo circuit. It wasn't an instant thing. They were friends until finally they tried to be more, only to have Dawson's wife barge in on them. Sage of course runs and never hears from him again until he shows up in her town.

Dawson obviously didn't want to be married. You knew he wasn't just cheating on his wife and I thought it would end up he wasn't married at all. It didn't and yes he definitely should have told Sage. Even if he wanted out of it he shouldn't have done anything until he was divorced, or at the very least been upfront about it. Then when he does come back is he single? Nope, not yet. Not cool. Just leave Sage alone until you can be with her. You know she is upset that she was the other woman. You know she hates that and still you pursue her again before you are free and clear. Really I did like Dawson even though I really shouldn't with his cheating. Yes he didn't love his wife and wanted out, but then get out.

So everything was going along and it wasn't a bad story. I was enjoying it, but not absolutely loving it. It was good. Then suddenly it was over. Everything was resolved right away and it was just way too quick and easy. The book should have been longer and it would have been better.

Rating: 2.5/5
