Momma Says: 4 out 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐
Country Nights is wonderfully written in first person, dual POV with chapters alternating between main characters, River and Leighton. It fits well into the Romance genre and features a cowboy and plenty of small town secrets. There are some disturbing scenes that may be triggers for some and with adult situations and a bit of steam, I recommend adult audiences. Now, check out the cowboy on the cover! Yum!

Only when I find her sleeping in her car a couple days later, I can't turn my back. I make her an offer: room and board in exchange for working on my ranch.
She agrees--not like she has a choice--and I open my doors to a girl who sings too loud, sticks her nose where it doesn't belong, and distracts me with her tight jeans and those full, f*ckable lips.
I keep her at an arm's length, and for good reason. I don't deserve happiness. And I don't deserve her.
But when those hot summer days melt into long country nights, I find it hard to keep my hands off of her, even when I know they don't belong there. My mouth on hers, her body on mine, that glimmer in her big brown eyes when she looks at me like I've hung the moon ...
For the first time in years, my frozen heart beats again. And when I look at her, I'm reminded that I'm still alive, that maybe all isn't lost. And when I kiss her, I'm not thinking about the past anymore, I'm picturing the two of us. A future.
But people around here like to talk and rumors are alive and well, and some folks are out to convince her I'm a monster with a sordid past.
And maybe I am ...
