Synopsis from Goodreads
Wedding bells are the last thing on twenty-two-year-old Riley Bishop’s mind, but that’s exactly what he hears after waking up in Vegas next to a woman he just met—his new wife.
He never saw her coming, but she might be worth the risk.
Zoey Mitchell is high on life, free-spirited, and adventurous. However, learning she married a rowdy cowboy after a night of partying is not what she expected—even for her.
She’s risking it all, gambling with her heart.
Deciding to give their instant marriage a chance, Zoey moves from her big city life to a small town Texas ranch. She has to know if their connection is based on more than just a wild one-night stand before announcing to her family that she got hitched.
One moment changes everything—for better or worse—and a secret could destroy them both.
**This is a full-length stand-alone novel in the Circle B Ranch series and a spin-off from the Bishop Brothers series. You don’t need to read any of the other books beforehand to enjoy this one!**
Whoot Whoot there is a whole new generation of Bishop’s to fall for as they bumble their way through to their happily ever afters.
Hitching the Cowboy concentrates on the grown-up Riley, son of Alex and River from Taming Him. Let’s put it this way, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree where Riley is concerned. Just as his father, Alex, met his mother while on vacation; Riley winds up married following a wild weekend in Vegas. However, what happens in Vegas doesn’t stay in Vegas when his wife, Zoey, makes a trip to Circle B to find out if their wedding dare can turn into the real thing.
The romance is super cute and the man Riley has become is a wonderful reflection on his upbringing. I love the dynamic of the Bishop family and the respect their women command.
Zoey has had a very different upbringing to Riley, with privilege at a price of expectation. Never feeling as if she truly belonged into the life she was born into and as a result, believing she is a disappointment to her family.
Beyond the romance, there is the underlying narrative of finding who you are and where you belong with the love and support of those around you but especially the person closest/dearest to you. Ultimately, the decision to seek acceptance/validation from others or within yourself is the true test of Zoey and Riley’s relationship.
I adored the peripheral characters and the little glimpses into their stories and am so pleased Diesel’s story will be the next one to come out the Circle B 😍
