    2. I finished it last night and I loved it! I am a fan of her series and this is going to be another good one I can tell. She really touched me with her portrayal of Mariah. there was definitely a chemistry between Joe and Mariah. I like the way her characters developed and grew beyond their childhood hurts. Couldn't put it down last night and I had a way to go but I wanted to find out how she was going to give them their HEA. It was a very touching ending too.

    3. This was story telling at its best ! Mariah is a wedding planner in Chicago was now is out of work. Her world changes once she gets a call informing her that her estranged father has passed and left her his Ranch. Joe Daniels is one hot Cowboy, sweet, sarcastic, who is emotionally wounded and happens to be her neighbor. I won't give any details for finding out is the best part. But the chemistry is off the charts and the demons they have within are deep and tragic. This is my first book by this [...]

    4. "Has something happened?""Are you sitting down?""No.""Sit down," Joe commanded."Just tell me," Mariah said, bracing for the worst."Dutch is dead," he blurted.Mariah blinked, nibbled her bottom lip, felthollow. Hollow as a chocolate Easter bunny"You okay?""I'm fine. It's not like my life is going to change," she said quickly"Wait," he said. "Don't hang up."Her hand tensed around the cell phone. "What is it?""Dutch left you his ranch."When Miriah called back her father's number she wasn't sure wha [...]

    5. I thought I would like this book more but there was a decided lack of friendship between the two main characters that just allowed me to get bored with the book towards the end. Overall, it's not bad. It's just a bit more emotionally involved than I'm used to, but I should have expected that given that Mariah's father's passing is what drove her to Texas and Joe. I did get bored towards the end of the book, but that could've been because I just wanted to watch the NBA playoffs & not read. Th [...]

    7. Such a sweet book! I'm a fan or Lori Wilde and this book solidified why I enjoy her work. It goes to show that a person should never be judged by the cover of their book.

    8. This Two-Fer Review posted on Guilty PleasuresRhys's Thoughts:For Mariah Callahan, finding out that tragedy has struck her life and sent her spirally back to her childhood isn't something that she relishes. But it couldn't have come at a better time. With her life in Chicago in shambles, a chance to get away and hide from the world sounds like the best thing she has heard in quite awhile. With a mix up on directions, and a meeting with a half naked drunken cowboy be the thing that makes her chan [...]

    10. Good sense comes from experience, and a lotta that comes from actin' like a damn fool.-Dutch CallahanIn the first book of Lori Wilde's New Series, Jubilee, Texas, we meet Ex-champion bull rider-turned-cutting-horse cowboy, Joe Daniels, who wakes up to see this little blond spit-fire staring down at him while he is lying half-naked in a horse trough.

    11. Mariah Callahan was a big time wedding planner in Chicago, and then her boss fires her. She is at loose ends when she receives a call that her estranged cowboy dad has died and has left her his ranch. Not having a job or any prospects she heads to Jubilee, Texas. Joe Daniels is a horse man who was best buds with Mariah’s dad, Dutch. When Joe lost his wife two years ago, Dutch saved him from himself. Joe has some opinions about the daughter who never contacted her father. He doesn’t want to l [...]

    12. Received this ARC from Vine. This is an emotion packed book that will make you laugh and make you cry. Mariah’s plight comes right off the page and you can't help but love her. Her confusion over her feelings for Dutch and Joe tears her, and me, in two. Mariah and Joe come together, two people who never expected to find someone to love. Joe never thought he could have a permanent attachment to a woman, after the death of his wife. Mariah career driven attitude didn’t allow for a social life [...]

    13. Let me start by saying I am not a fan of Westerns, don't care for country music, and don't have a particular draw towards cowboys. However, this book was just very well written and I'm glad I read it. Annie has lost her job and found out that her estranged father has died and left her his property in Texas. She goes down there from Chicago to find that she not only has to deal with her own memories, but also the memories of people who knew him better. One of those people was his best friend, who [...]

    14. My FULL REVIEW here!!! Mariah learns that she has inherited her father's ranch, which is quite a shock since she hasn't seen him since he showed up and embarrassed her at school when she was 14 years old. Normally, she'd want nothing to do with the ranch her father owned, but since she is unemployed and pretty much broke, she doesn't really have any other options besides going to Texas and selling the ranch so she can start her own business.Joe lost his wife, and exactly 2 years later he loses h [...]

    15. Mariah's father left the family when she was seven. Now Dutch is dead and Mariah has inherited her father's land and a small cabin with a leaking roof.Last two years have been tough on Joe. He has lost both his wife Becca and his best friend Dutch. And now Dutch's daughter, who didn't want anything to do with his cutter father, has arrived to town.I liked the book a lot. The beginning was really good and humorous. I was laughing out loud when reading how the main characters met. I liked the town [...]

    16. Good book. I really liked both characters and the other people of the town. Mariah came to Jubilee after her father died. She was still feeling a lot of hurt from his abandonment, and planned to simply sell the land and go back to Chicago. Joe wanted the land but wouldn't have the money for a couple months. She agreed to stick around until he did, and decided to start up her own wedding planning business while she was there. Joe was glad she was giving him a chance to get the money needed. Joe w [...]

    17. This was a great book. The story was clear, straightforward, entertaining, and just downright great storytelling. There were no surprises in this book, but I enjoy the predictability of romances, so I'm not complaining. Joe was a great hero. He was a strong, reliable, and protective character who wanted the best for the heroine. Pure alpha male. Mariah was a terrific heroine. She was independent, reliable, and strong in her own way. I admired Mariah when she decided to leave the hatred for her F [...]

    18. A traditional romance where not a lot happens - the tension and drama between the characters comes from internal sources "If I could only learn to trust again." etc which is somewhat at odds with what's actually happening in the book. For example Mariah desperately wants to belong and doesn't feel a part of anything yet within a couple of months of moving to Jubilee she has people who are co-signing loans for her. The mishmash of what that characters feel vs. what's playing out made it hard for [...]

    19. I thought the book was just ok. I liked the beginning and I liked the end. It was all the things in the middle. That we're just meh for me. I found some things rushed and some things that just dragged on. And on. And on. The blurb for the next book looks good and is on my list now. I won't give up. I won't give up.

    20. I loved the small town of Jubilee and the way Lori Wilde brought these two wounded souls together. Funny, yet it had those moments that gripped your heart in a vice, causing me to wipe at my eyes discreetly as I read on the plane. I highly recommend this book to lovers of small town romance.

    21. I'm not usually a fan of Westerns, but this one was interesting and a lot of fun. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters. Very well done.

    22. Two-haiku review:Her dad leaves her ranchJobless, she goes to TexasMeets her hot neighborNicely done romanceBoth characters have issuesLove overcomes loss

    23. It was a solid three in some parts but it sorta failed for me with all the touchy feely over talkative male. That's just me. IT's a personal thing. Other people dig that.

    24. This is the first book in the 3 book Jubilee Texas series by Lori Wilde. I've already read a couple of series by Ms. Wilde so I was familiar with her writing style. Flowery prose with a little R-rated sex in the telling of a Hallmark Movie type romance. But hey, I've always been a sucker for Hallmark Movies so.In The Cowboy Takes a Bride we meet Joe Daniels a rancher who lost his young wife Becca 2 years prior in a tragic rodeo accident. Joe like most everyone in Jubilee Texas raises and trains [...]

    25. Joe Daniels is a cutting horse cowboy and he's in a bad way. Two years ago his wife died and just yesterday Dutch died. Dutch was his mentor and also his best friend.

Fighting the attraction he feels toward the blond-haired filly with the big, vulnerable eyes.When out-of-work wedding planner Mariah Callahan learns that her estranged father has left her a rundown ranch in Jubil [...]

    27. This was one of those heart string huggers. Nothing better than starting a story with a naked cowboy in a gold horse trough. Well, he did have on his boots. Mariah and Joe. . . two opposites that apparently had so much sizzle and attraction , any and everyone around them could see it in the air. It was a fun story that I enjoyed, even the part that made me cry. Something about these small towns where everyone knows and helps out each other. Coming from the big city after her estranged father's f [...]
