"The Texan's Surprise Son" [Texas Rodeo Barons Series, Book 5] by Cathy McDavid

Author's Book Description : Taken By Surprise

Jacob Baron is shocked to discover he's a father. But he's determined to do right by his son, despite the lack of strong role models in his own life. Jacob's a bull rider, and there's no halfway with him. He'll be the kind of dad his son needs...even if Cody's attractive aunt, Mariana Snow, seems to question his daddy skills at every turn.

Jacob cooks, cleans and has a nice touch with a two-year-old. He also has broad shoulders, gorgeous eyes and a mouth that can only be described as sexy. But Mariana's own part-time, no-good father was a rodeo star. She knows their charms can't be trusted. She's hanging around for Cody's sake, that's all. At least, that's what she keeps telling herself....

My Book Review : 2.5 out of 5 stars, a cowboy from a big family--who never thought he really fit in--gets the promotion of his dreams if only he can earn the championship title at the National Finals Rodeo, but months before the Finals his world gets thrown for a loop by a mesmerizing woman who informs him that her nephew is his son...

I really liked the storyline/plot for this novel. Because I feel the same way (though not for the same reasons), I liked that Mariana searched out Jacob to let him know about Cody, and I liked how the three of them built a relationship with each other. All together, they make a cute family.

Nevertheless, even though I liked the plot, it was hard to like Mariana and her mother at times. I understand that because of their past experiences it hard for them to trust men but the accusations they both gave and the level of trust Mariana wouldn't give was hard to read through at times.

However, even though this was the first novel I read from this series, it did make me interested in reading about the rest of the Baron clan. I'm also now interested to see where this series will go next.

Therefore, I do recommend this novel and series to anyone who likes contemporary romances about cowboys, and to those who are willing to keep an open mind by not letting Mariana's nuances annoy you as they did me.

Book Teaser(s) :
Before she quite realized what was happening, Jacob gave her cheek a peck. "For luck."
Her whole face instantly warmed. After that, he and Daniel sauntered off as if their entire worlds hadn't just tilted on their axis. Mariana's certainly had.
She watched Jacob's form grow smaller until he disappeared behind a metal building, the warmth spread until it reached all the way to her fingertips and toes.
"Cody, your aunt Mariana might be in a bit of trouble."
"Yeah, bye-bye good sense." ~ within Chapter 6
