I purchased Cowboy Heat back in 2012 and have read it a few times since then I chose to revisit the book recently and realized that it is one of my favorites.
Libby has been sick for a long time but her Doctor has just given her a pass to go out and really live her life, he doesn’t know how long her remission will last but she is eager to run with what she was given. I have never experienced a terminal illness and I certainly hope that they find cures for all those illnesses soon because I know that it is heart wrenching for those who are going through it and their families.
I think my favorite part of the whole story was when Libby went to learn how to play pool and ended up in a bar fight, that whole chapter was worth reading twice. I would give you more details but I already shared a quote from that chapter and the last thing I want to do is offend and amazing author or giveaway a huge chunk of story, just saying this was worth reading the whole book for.
I didn’t like that Libby had to live with her FEAR hot on her trail. I think that her fear of NO TOMORROW made her a bit reckless and I also thought that Aron should have pushed a bit harder for answers but then the story might have ended before the bar fight if he had pushed harder and that would have ruined a great story line. It’s one of those damned if you do damned if you don’t kind of things.
Cowboy Heat made me want to laugh and cry sometimes even at the same time. I can understand why Libby didn’t want people to know she had spent half her life fighting for her life and I also think I understood the very real fear the drove her to keep her relationship with Aron on the track he had originally placed it on. I admire the author, Sable Hunter, for writing out the story with so much thought and care as well as strength, bravery and most importantly HOPE.
I need to apologize for one of my quote choices because it might actually be one of those teasers that gives something of the story away but I love it so much that I felt the need to share so I am truly sorry if I have given anything away.
“He has dyslexia, you baboon. I’ve heard enough from you! That’s it.” Libby handed her wine cooler to Isaac. “You’re going down, you loud-mouthed Jezebel!”—Libby—She was such a badass in this scene
“And as an American man, I am entitled to life, Liberty, (that’s you) and the pursuit of happiness.”—Aron
Book Cover Rating
As I stared at the models and thought about the descriptions of the characters from the story line I kind felt that even though the basics of the descriptions are covered there is still something off with the female model. Don’t get me wrong she has dark hair and almost as thin like the book says but some how I think the model is to tall or the male model isn’t tall enough to fit the story line either way its not an exact fit but it is one of the closest match I have ever seen and I haven’t seen many.

Aron McCoy has sworn off women – except for sex.
When Libby Fontaine arrives at Aron’s Tebow Ranch, she is determined to cram a lifetime of living into a few short months. The doctor has told her that she can’t count on her remission from leukemia being a permanent one.
Their attraction to one another is instantaneous and overwhelming. But when Aron finds out that Libby is innocent – he backs off. He has nothing to offer a girl who deserves white lace and promises. Then Aron catches Libby pleasuring herself in his stock tank and hears her cry out his name – and the heat is on.
