Review: The Virgin Cowboy Billionaire’s Secret Baby by Lauren Gallagher

You can’t thaw a heart that was never frozen.

Retired at thirty-five, billionaire Matt Coolidge should be enjoying the fruits of his workaholic years. Instead, he’s got migraines from butting heads with his mother. If Matt doesn’t get a matrimonial move-on, she’s threatening to will the family farm to his brother, who’ll turn it into a strip mall.

Then Matt’s childhood best friend rolls back into town, bringing a complication that’s not entirely unexpected—or unwelcome.

Years ago, with Matt’s help, Dara Marley froze several embryos before cancer treatment stole her fertility—and before a stupid argument tore their friendship apart. Now alone, she’s taking the most logical step to ensure the child she’s carrying has a father. Returning to Matt—and hoping bygones will be bygones.

Baby and all, Matt’s on board. And when Dara finds out Matt’s career kept him too busy for a relationship—even sex—she’s more than happy to bring him up to speed.

But a decades-old grudge between their families means keeping quiet about their good news—and the feelings they never knew went far deeper than friendship.

Warning: Contains a virgin who’s been waiting a long time for this and a woman who’s happy to show him the way. And they’ve both had it up to here with narrow-minded gossips and small-town grudges.

Isn’t that title a mouth full?  Not to mention a bit of an eye catcher.  I mean really?  A virgin cowboy billionaire?  And how does one get a baby out of that?  Needless to say, it was enough to catch my attention.  Add to that, I have read and enjoyed this author before, so I was willing to give this a chance.

I do have to admit that I find the whole concept of a virgin cowboy billionaire kind of unbelievable.  Don’t get me wrong.  I actually know a thirty year old virgin.  There is a reason (well, more than one) he is still a virgin.  He is not a cowboy.  Nor is he a billionaire.  I will leave it at that.  But a guy who is both a cowboy and a billionaire . . . why hasn’t someone snapped him up?

There was actually some very plausible reasons for this lovely man to still be a virgin at the ripe old age of 36.  But it sure was a shame.  Good thing he was a fast study.  Dara appreciated that too.

As for the “secret baby,” that was interesting too, and also plausible, not to mention rather noble.

I found I was pleasantly surprised to find a well done romance with some interesting subject matter rather than the eye-roller the title may have suggested.  This was actually a rather sweet romance, in spite of the Hatfield/McCoy type feud happening in the families.  That only added the required conflict and gave our couple a chance to show their moxie.

I found this to be a delightful story with interesting characters.  I think any lover of the contemporary romance will enjoy this.  Check it out.
