Hot on the ice and tall in the saddle...

Rancher and hockey coach Logan Rivers' attempts to hire a housekeeper are hindered by women more interested in marriage than meal-planning. So when snarky Harper Evans arrives with zero romantic interest in him, he couldn't be happier. But as he gets to know her, he finds himself hungering for more than her cooking.

Down-on-her-luck single mom Harper Evans came to Colorado with one goal: to find her son and bring him home. Temporary work for a local rancher seems perfect, but to keep the job she has to deny her feelings for the hot cowboy who's heating up her kitchen.

Logan's secret learning disability has caused a financial mistake that could cost him everything. With the holidays approaching and a storm closing in, he and Harper have to save his ranch and fight for her son. But can Harper trust the cowboy who is offering her both a home―and his heart?


Wish Upon a Cowboy was sweet, sexy and filled with small town charm, friendships and second chances.  With holiday moments sprinkled throughout this story, my Christmas loving self was bursting with joy!  Especially in the latter half, I loved it so much.  With tons of heart, I found myself smiling long after I finished that last page.  So if you love Christmas miracles and happy endings for all, definitely add this one to your tbr!

She needed a star right now— needed something to guide her, to lead her to her deepest desire. She felt more lost than she’d ever been.
She stared into the lights of the tree and prayed for guidance and wisdom and for something to give her hope to hold on to.

Harper Evans was someone I instantly liked.  She was a kind hearted woman, yet her past cast a shadow on how she saw herself.  She made a mistake, went to jail and had to spend a few months away from her son.  She was desperate to get back on her feet and have her son in her life, so she traveled to the cute little town of Creedence, Colorado.  Within those first few pages we got to see how big Harper’s heart was and how she was always trying to help others.  I was so happy when she ended up getting a job working for Logan Rivers.  It looked like her luck was finally starting to turn around.

She set something off inside him, something that made him want to flirt with her, to win her over with his charm and coax that sexy smile onto her face.

I was already infatuated with Logan Rivers from Caught Up in a Cowboy.  And while this book can easily be read as a standalone, I definitely recommend picking up the rest of the books in the Cowboys of Creedence Series.  So Logan was sexy, strong and determined.  He worked on his family’s ranch and the hot cowboy even had me laughing out loud at his cheesy humor.  With just firing his house keeper and his ranch hand, Logan was in desperate need of some help.  Especially since his dad was out of town for an extended time.  The ranch was all on him.  Harper seemed like the perfect solution, she was effective, did an amazing job and helped take a load of stress off of Logan right away.

He lowered his tone as he looked into her eyes. “I think we make a good team.”
“We do,” she whispered, then looked away as if his words embarrassed her.

Logan and Harper were instantly attracted to each other.  Yet she needed to focus on her job, so she could get her son back.  Harper definitely didn’t have time for romance in her life.  And Logan made a huge mistake when it came to his family’s ranch, so he needed to focus on his job.  And with Harper leaving in a few weeks or so, he shouldn’t get attached.  While they both tried to ignore what was between them, it was impossible to do.  Especially when it felt effortless for them to form a friendship and anytime they were near each other, sparks were flying.

What was she doing? Her sole purpose for being here was to get Floyd and get out of Dodge, not to get involved with a smart-mouthed cowboy, no matter how hot that cowboy was or how delicious his mouth tasted.

Wish Upon a Cowboy had so much heart in the pages.  It was also a story about a mom and her son’s love.  Of friendships being formed.  Getting second chances.  And a community pulling together while Christmas was in the air.  And with adorable side characters like Nacho the mama cat, Star the wonder cow and Otis who I won’t say what he was lol, oh my goodness, this book was absolutely adorable!  It was topped off with a meddlesome grandma, peppermint schnapps and a winter storm!

Her breath came out in a harsh gasp. “I’m nothing. You deserve more than someone like me.”
“I don’t deserve you. But I want you. With every part of my soul.”

Wish Upon a Cowboy was a beautiful story about forgiveness, happiness and finding love. It was impossible not to have some happy tears towards the end of this book.   Plus I loved that we got to see some of our favorites from the previous books.  So if you love Hallmark Christmas movies because they’re smile inducing, give you all the feels and have the best endings ever, you definitely have to check this book out.  I’m so thankful that Logan got his own story and the fact that it was during the holidays made it absolutely perfect!

Maybe he believed in miracles after all.
