My Review: I thought this was a very sweet romance especially from Rye’s POV! I really liked Rye and thought he was the perfect Cowboy leading man. Seriously, he was the kind of man that most women would swoon over and I had no problem warming up to him. It took me a little longer to warm up to Austin but eventually she won me over. The small town, Rye’s Family, and her grandmother friends were just a hoot though sometimes a little to nosy. However, growing up in a small town—I realized it was pretty much true to the way small town gossip works. There were a few lulls in the story but Carolyn quickly has you laughing again with her brilliant comedic timing. I laughed out loud more than a few times! Overall Love Drunk Cowboy left me warm and fuzzy–exactly what I want from my Cowboy Romances.
Book Club View: We all thought this was a sweet story with a great leading guy. We all seemed to think a real-life Rye would not be a bad thing at all. Though in the beginning we all had varying degrees of warmness to Austin, by the end we were glad to see them together. We all thought there were laugh out loud moments and a few lull moments that felt like filler. We were all smiling by the end and thought it was a sweet Cowboy Romance. On a side note, we had a side conversation about watermelon wine. Has anyone ever tried it?
