Loving A Lawman by Amy Lillard

Loving a Lawman (Cattle Creek, #1)


Sheriff Seth Langston is head over heels for local wild child Jessie McAllen and has been for years. The trouble is she has eyes only for Seth’s rodeo star brother, Chase. Even though he considers Jessie his girl, Chase is an incorrigible ladies’ man with a wandering eye and no chance of settling down soon.
Jessie is ready to move away from Cattle Creek to put her feelings for Chase behind her, but after she shares a white-hot kiss with Seth, things get a little complicated. Jessie realizes her heart should have been his all along. And in the face of sudden tragedy, they’ll discover if their newfound passion will tear the Langston men apart or make the family stronger than ever. 


I really liked the book! it was certainly different than what I'm used to reading and I most definitely skipped the bedroom scenes (sorry Amy). But overall, the characters were certainly well developed and I loved the cover of the book. 
I like Jessie because in a way she reminds me of me if that makes any sense. I loved her stubborn streak but I also loved her sensitive side as well.
Seth was equally determined. I like a man who admits he's wrong and tries to make it right! 
I came from a small town so I know what it's like. Everyone knows your business before you do! that's really the only thing I don't like about a small town. 
There were some parts that I laughed at and wanted to cry because I can relate to Jessie so much. 
I just wonder sometimes about ppl why it takes them so long to appreciate what's right in front of them! 
Thanks Amy for a wonderful story. I will read this again. You truly made Seth and Jessie come alive. I can almost see them in a movie!!
I received a copy of this book from Amy Lillard in exchange for an honest review.


Amy Lillard
I'm a wife, mother, and bona fide Southern belle. Published author, expert corn bread maker, and Squirrel Princess.

I live in Tulsa, though I was born in Mississippi. I moved to the Sooner State when I was seventeen and met my soul mate and best friend not long after. I've retained a little of my Mississippi accent though most people think I'm from Texas. (?) Rob and I have been married for over twenty years and have a son--a mom proclaimed prodigy, of course!

I love homemade tacos, nail polish, and romance novels--not necessarily in that order. I'm a big fan of country music, a staunch proponent of saving the Oxford comma, and I'm shamefully obsessed with all things Harry Potter.

I believe that God is love. I guess that's why I adore romances. 

I have always been intrigued with the Amish culture, their gentle ways and slower-paced lifestyle. (And I love, love, love the fact that they stay married for their lifetime.) But until recently I never thought to blend this interest with my penchant for romance. Okay, okay, I'm a bit old-fashioned and even enjoy the gender roles that are present in this culture. I love to cook and take care of my family. Yes, that's me June Cleaver with a laptop.

I dislike people trying to convince me to read the Twlight series (I'll get to it or I won't, either way I'm good with it), gratuitous violence, and strawberry ice cream. (I know I'm alone on this last one, and again, I'm good with it.)

Favorite movies--(besides HP) French Kiss, Maid of Honor, A Lot Like Love, Just Married, and Sweet Home Alabama. Oh, and Miss Congeniality, Sabrina (both versions) and a 1940's movie called Dear Ruth. If you haven't seen it, you should! A-dorable. Anything with Doris Day and most all of Marilyn's and Audrey's.
