Book Review: Annie Rains - Welcome Home, Cowboy

Hello Lovelies!
Today I will be reviewing 'Welcome Home, Cowboy' by Annie Rains, copy received from Netgalley via Loveswept in exchange for an honest review.

'Welcome Home, Cowboy' is a romance novel, it is 261 pages long and it took me about three hours to read. It is available at Barnes and Noble (NOOKBook) for $3.99



About The Book

Genre: Romance

Length: 261 Pages

Publisher: Loveswept

Release Date: April 26, 2016



Book Synopsis
After a bad breakup leaves Julie Chandler completely devastated, she comes to Seaside seeking a fresh start. A talented, compassionate yoga teacher, she has developed a program to help alleviate the effects of PTSD, but getting a bunch of bullheaded Marines into downward   facing dog might be impossible. So Julie's shocked when one of her first students dives in headfirst -- and almost tempts her to take down her walls with his easy smile and electrifying touch.

Ever since Texas cowboy turned Marine pilot Lawson Phillips lost a crew member in a helicopter accident, he hasn't been able to fly. When a psychologist orders hims to attend, of all things, a yoga class, Lawson's outraged -- until he finds out Julie is the instructor. She's beautiful, graceful, and completely guarded when it comes to his advances, but he's determined to find out what makes her tick. Because underneath Julie's hard shell is a woman Lawson knows he could fall for -- and he's not ready for the ride to end.


What did I think? 5 Stars

Like: The characters.
Dislike: Nothing.

Would I recommend it?
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for a sweet romance.  This is the first book I've read by Annie Rains and I really enjoyed it, once I started reading I was hooked and I couldn't wait to finish it.

I really enjoyed the characters and I think that the love story between them was very believable. Sometimes with romance novels I feel like I'm reading the same thing over and over again, but that wasn't the case with this book. I can honestly say I've never read a book with Marines doing yoga!

Overall, I loved the book, I would definitely recommend buying it to anyone who loves a sweet romance, but wants something a little bit different. I would definitely consider reading more books by this author.

Thank you Loveswept via Netgalley for providing me with this book in exchange for an honest review!

April Playlist

Hello Lovelies!
It's been a while since I last posted a playlist or shared any type of  music post with y'all. Honestly it's been a while since I've posted anything, but I decided to start with a music post. I want to start blogging again, but I want to try starting out slow so I don't get overwhelmed again.

So here's my first playlist of the year, I hope you enjoy!

Ways to Start Your Day Off Right

Hello Lovelies!
I've had this post in my draft box for years and for some reason just never finished writing it. I'm really trying to clean up my draft box and get some new stuff in there for days where I can't find the motivation to write or just can't get my words to come out the way I want them to.

The inspiration behind this post came from the fact that I have always struggled with mornings. I have a love/hate relationship with mornings. I want to stay in bed and rest, but at the same time I want to get up, get the day started and over with so I can come home and relax.

I've actually been doing good here lately I've been getting up around 8:30 - 9:00am and being ready to start my day by 10am, some days I'm up earlier, it just depends on my work schedule, I've been working a lot of late nights since I changed positions,

So here's a few things that have worked for me, I hope it helps you start the day off right!
