Today is my stop on the blog tour for Song For A Cowboy, the newest addition to the Kings of Country series by Sasha Summers.
Country star Emmy Lou King is singing the blues over the cowboy who got away…
Emmy Lou King’s whole family is legendary in country music. When she lands the opportunity to sing the American Football League anthem and serve on one of the AFL’s anti-drug charities, she’s sure she can handle working with Brock Watson. She was charmed by the cowboy once upon a time—and she’s never loved anyone else—but she can handle it. Right?
Brock Watson is feeling the pressure. From dealing with his father’s declining health, to keeping their ranch running, staying in game-ready shape, and his dedication to the charity that changed his life, there’s no time for anything else. Emmy Lou included. After six years, he’d like to think she couldn’t mess with his head anymore. But one look, one smile—and he knows she’s as dangerous as ever. He can’t resist her—he never could.
The more time Emmy Lou spends with Brock, the harder it is for them to keep their distance.

If you’ve read Jace, the first book in the Kings of Country series, you already know how complicated living in King family is. Krystal King and Jace do appear in this book too, but mostly it is about Emmy Lou, Krystal’s twin, and her first and only love Brock Watson. Song for a Cowboy can be easily read as a standalone.
Emmy Lou has always be the sweet one, the little ray of sunshine in her family. She is the one who wears the lightest and brightest colours and will smile her way through the Kings concerts, even though she may have a sprained ankle and a broken heart. She has been in the country music business since her early childhood and has an utmost respect for her fans. She is known for her professionalism and her discipline, but do they come at expense of her own personal happiness? Emmy Lou trusts people around her to be honest and have her best interests at heart. Perhaps, she needs to learn to be more independent and more cautious of people who are trying to manipulate her.
Her high school sweetheart Brock Watson is one of the best professional football players in their hometown team. Straightaway we get the feel that they got separated due to a misunderstanding. Brock has been through a rough period of his life and would like to give back to his community through working for a charity. Emmy Lou is also involved in this charity’s project and the star-crossed lovers are thrown back together in each others’ lives. This is a sweet second chance story where the characters have to work through their family issues and learn to communicate with each other.
The three King siblings are wonderfully close and I really enjoyed their banter. I loved the way they would come to each other’s defence and stick up for each other through thick and thin. There are some wonderful secondary characters in this book, including Brock’s Aunt Mo and Emmy Lou’s bodyguard Sawyer who may have a few secrets of his own. They are in total contrast to CiCi King, Emmy Lou’s mother, who any reader would find it difficult not to hate.
If you enjoy second chance love stories, country music, strong, reliable characters who know how to keep their word, despite being caught in crazy family drama and lovely,supportive relationshipsbetween siblings, you are going to love Song For a Cowboy.
