Marry me or walk...

Nate Hansen desperately needs a reboot to his playboy image that doesn't involve women, drinking and fighting. Rehabilitation and building a solid future proves elusive as he can't land a permanent job until someone mentions local widow Joy Mitchell who's advertising a full-time ranch job. Perfect.

Joy Mitchell is desperate for a ranch hand to help keep her dead husband's legacy alive out of the greedy grasp of her manipulative father-in-law. Nate's reputation precedes him, none of it good, but the ranch is running on empty, and Joy make the hard choice. Problem is the job she's offering isn't exactly what Nate had planned.

Nate knows what its like to lose everything, but seriously, become a mail-order groom? But Joy won't or can't compromise.

The reasons to marry and fight like they did in the book didn't always make sense. Watson brothers books were better.

A pleasure to read. The hero and heroine were real and lovable, the villain was dastardly and Toby was perfect. Frosting on the cake was lawyer Sadie : loved her!

4.5 Stars! I love marriage of convenience romances, and The Convenient Cowboy by Ann B. Harrison is a wonderful addition to the trope. This is a nicely-written book, replete with well-defined characters, some intense situations, and an adorable toddler who is mimicking his first words. This story focuses on ranch-hand Nate Hansen, and Joy Mitchell, a widowed mom with an organic ranch to run. Joy is on the verge of losing her mind as well as her ranch. Ryan, her father-in-law, is an ogre, and he wants the ranch that was bequeathed to her in her late husband's will. Although they both lost a loved one, Ryan's maliciousness knows no bounds. So after exhausting all of her options, Joy decides to hire a husband. Although Joy is strong and independent, running a ranch and raising a toddler without any help is impossible. Somebody legally bound to her will be much more productive than an employee, and less apt to being lured away by Ryan and his henchmen. Nash is finally leaving his days of womanizing, drinking and brawling behind, so he needs a steady job in order to begin his new life. He has no desire to become somebody's husband, however, he needs a job and no one else is hiring. In addition, Nash and Joy share an attraction, which makes his decision even easier. Nash's misgivings about being around a toddler are quickly forgotten, because Toby immediately latches onto him and it is fatherly love at first site. This is quite an entertaining book. Joy is a wonderful woman who is saddled with family members that are cruel, and only out for themselves. Her luck takes a turn for the better when she marries Nash. Nash turns out to be a wonderful husband and father, despite his bad boy past. He stands by Joy's side through thick and thin, which only makes their developing feelings more tangible. This is the second book from The Hansen Brothers series and it can be enjoyed as a standalone. Complimentary copy provided by the publisher via NetGalley.

The story was okay but lacking reason to marry. Plus fighting with themselves for making their decisions. Moving slow to get what Joy wanted. Needed more of a story. joy943

A marriage of convenience for both Nate and Joy. Nate needs to redeem himself from his past and Joy needs help saving her ranch from her father in law. I so enjoyed the development of these characters. N.ate will do anything to help Joy and her son, Toby (such a cutie) in saving the ranch. Joy will soon realize that she can open her heart again to Nate. This is the second book in the Hanson Brothers but can be read as a stand alone.

A great addition to The Hansen Brothers series. The Convenient Cowboy by Ann B. Harrison. I've enjoyed the storyline and character development in this book. Nate with his playboy image that he's trying to change. Joy a widow needing help with her ranch and her father in law wanting it. I really enjoyed Joy's son Toby he just added so much to the story. I look forward to reading the next book in this series.

The Convenient Cowboy by Ann B. Harrison The Hansen Brothers #2 Nate Hansen needs a job Joy Mitchell needs a ranch hand that won’t leave She’s at the end of her rope She’s a widow and mother of a toddler She’s running out of steam He might be able to help her on the ranch and keep it away from a conniving relative BUT Is a marriage of convenience really the only way to solve their problems? Read the book and see. I liked the dynamics between Nate, Joy and Toby. The romance was slow growing and by the time they truly sealed the deal they knew one another well enough to have a good chance at a future together. I have to say that I didn’t see them as a couple in the beginning or understand the reason for the marriage as I have in other marriage of convenience romances but it is also difficult to write a more modern day book of this genre with a truly convincing reason for the marriage...or so it seems. The villains were a bit over the top as was Joy’s sister. The plot was somewhat predicable and yet...I did enjoy the story and found myself hoping that Nate, Joy and Toby would get their HEA. Thank you to NetGalley and Tule Publishing for the ARC – This is my honest review. 3-4 Stars
