    I was very excited to read this book because I looooovvvvvvve me some cowboys, and the author’s note at the beginning had me even more convinced that this would be a great read. As it turned out, however, I enjoyed her note more than I did the book itself. It’s not that it was bad, but it’s not the romance I expected. I’ll try to explain why this one just didn’t work for me.I’m going to start by saying that The Last Cowboy was really a difficult book to read and review. While it was [...]

    Part of the joy of reading is that it can take you places and impart knowledge that you couldn't realistically acquire any other way, and if that knowledge can be wrapped up into a romantic story, then I'm all for it. More than once I've been driven to to find out more from something picked up in a casual read. Unfortunately, this one, provided by netgalley, didn't do that for me. This book is set in the distinctely focused world of endurance racing. Not running, but horse racing over long dist [...]

    If I were a horse enthusiast, I'd had a field day reading this book. But since I'm not (and never would be in the near future) the book just about bored me silly. Slade was an endurance riding champion who ran an endurance school in Jackson Hole, Wyoming (the same location of LMK's other books). And Dr. Jordana, the town's emergency physician has always dreamed on entering the race so she went to Slade's class for the training. And the story just revolved around their mustangs, the race, the tra [...]

    Too simple. I could have written the entire story in two pages. There was not a thing in it that appealed to me. Written on a 5th grade level. I hate to think young readers reading something like this and then being turned off to Westerns. If you are new to reading such , please skip this and find any thing you can written by Zane Grey, He wrote real books. With real plots and real characters.

    This was awful and made me really wish more books had characters named Jordana because then I wouldn't have had to read this trash for my 2017 reading challenge.2017 reading challenge: A book with a character with your first name

    4 solid stars! I really enjoyed The Last Cowboy by Lindsay McKenna. I have always loved a good western romance, and Ms. McKenna definitely did not let me down. At one point she compared the leading man (Slade) to the "Marlboro Man." Who I remember very vividly from commercials when I was young -- that man was HOT!! The romance takes a while to get going, but once it does it is not only very sweet it is smokin' as well! I wouldn't have thought Slade and Jordana would have made a good couple, but [...]

    The Last Cowboy had all of the elements necessary to create the perfect feel good western romance. The backdrop for the story was Jackson Hole, Wyoming near the Teton Mountains. McKenna had me longing to see this picturesque country side. Next, she stirred in sexy, heart weary rancher, Slade McPherson. She introduced Dr. Jordana Lawton, a woman who could see through his stubborn exterior. Then, she sprinkled on a villainous neighbor, an estranged brother, disaster and a couple of beautiful horse [...]

    Okay read but was definitely bogged down by too much explanation of how to do things with horses and such. It didn't flow with the story as some other authors manage. The story was decent and the characters okay it just didn't feel very fleshed out. It was missing the spark that would make it a great read.

    Tracey Hawk
    Oh my. This was a crap book. The characters were blah. The writing was blah. I skipped chapters and missed nothing.

    Val
    Wow what a story! Emotional at times but action packed too.

    This book was pretty good! I loved the real life that was added into this romance book - the hardship of all times. Money - Slade had a hard life - he lost both his parents when he was 6, separated from his twin brother and lost his adoptive parents when he was 17, forced into hard work and labor to keep the family ranch on top.Just when things are starting to look up for Slade, he meets a woman, Isobel - after just one week of being together, they get married - Isobel is a rich spoiled and shel [...]

    I adore Lindsay McKenna's books and if I could shout it out, I would! But, of course, we have to be polite ~ LOL.Reading The Last Cowboy was a dream for me, considering my love of horses. Never having heard about competitive endurance racing, I was enthralled with this story. Slade McPhearson is a Wyoming rancher battered down by a life saddened by the death of his parents when he was a young boy through the intervening years as he struggles to keep his inherited ranch solvent. Financially strap [...]

    I picked up this book because it featured a cowboy and it was a romance.What I liked: Strong Female Character. She was smart (ER Doctor), she was athletic (competitive endurance riding and dressage), she was kind-hearted and tough. We need more strong woman in the romance genre;I also liked the descriptions of endurance horses and the race itself. I never knew that the sport existed. I don't read romance novels to learn stuff - but it was a nice touch.What I didn't like: Notwithstanding the stro [...]

    The slow pace of their growing relationship allowed me as a non-romance reader to appreciate the flow of the story. Had it been rushed and more forced I would have been turned off completely. Among the growing love story is a mix of horse training, ranch work and sibling rivalry. The attention to details, flowing descriptions and steady pace of the story kept me reading, which resulting in my finishing the book only a day after starting it. The author has a wonderful way of wording things that a [...]

    This book revolves around two characters and their involvement in endurance riding. Jordana was a doctor who enjoyed endurance riding as a hobby and dreamed of entering a race but knew she needed training first. She asked Slade, who is a champion endurance rider, if he would accept her as a student at his endurance school in Jackson Hold, Wyoming. He didn't want to accept her but finally did.Most of the story describes horses, their movement and endurance riding which the reader needs to know in [...]

    I can't believe I finished this. Far too predictable. You know essentially the entire story from the back coverd if that isn't enough, there's a two page synopsis inside the book!! There are no "twists". Too many conversations that went on and on that really could've been much shorter (or cut out completely because they had nothing to do with anything).Soooo many in-continuities!!! (is that a word?) Example: Jordana takes her horse to the bathing stall for one sentence, the next is cleaning her [...]

    Having read the second book in this series prior to this one I had heard the story of Griff so it was interesting to learn more about his story prior to his book. The book starts out with Jordana going to Slades ranch with her horse hoping he will take her on as a student in endurance riding.As the story continues you learn more about a Slades past and how he came to own the ranch. In addition you get to see when Griff arrives in town and how he will play in the next story. The other part of the [...]

    I learned a lot more about horses than I expected while reading this book. I liked the slow respect that grew between Slade and Jordana in this novel. They each had their own issues to deal with before they could deal with their ones together. I do wish Slade had been a little more open hearted with his brother. I was glad that Jordana had some warmth for his twin as well as Slade. Although I do understand why Slade was so angry with his brother too.Anyway I liked the way Slade and Jordana made [...]

    Susan
    Very good book. Slade was hanging on to his ranch by his fingers and needed all the paying customers he could get. Jordana really wanted his expertise to help her with her endurance racing. He had major trust issues because of his ex-wife, and really didn't want to deal with Jordana at all. I really enjoyed the information on endurance racing. I liked the way that she was able to reach Slade and soothe him when he got wound up. There was some suspense tension with the other rider, but it didn't [...]

    I found myself rolling my eyes a couple of times in this book. Started out okay. I felt like it rushed a bit to the finish. Real annoying conversational bits that just served as advertisements for the other books in the series. Nothing quite so bad as people telling other people things they already know so we can know them, too. I liked the characters pretty well, though, which is probably why I kept reading.Doctor comes to town, hires a cowboy to train her and her horse for endurance racing. Th [...]

    Decent storyThis was a decent story. It paced well with a good premise. I love a good cowboy story. This was a good escape for me. I was a little disappointed at the end. Slade and jordana seemed to circle one another most of the book. It was a slow building love the felt right, until the end. For some reason they went from hesitant friends to expressing their undying love. It felt forced, rushed and uncharacteristic. It kind of took the wind out the sails of this book. There are some great hors [...]

    Seriously Reviewed
    Touching, emotional, sexy. A complete package that was all wrapped up with a bang. I am a long time HQN readere I pretty much know what I am going to get when I pick one up. A solid story, good characters and a journey that will be well worth the time. No surprise, The Last Cowboy was no exception. I ripped through it and was almost sad when it ended. But in a good way :) This is not the first of Ms McKenna's works that I have read and you can be sure that it won't be the last. She is fast appro [...]

    I have always considered myself easily entertained ~ Extremely rare for me not to finish a book, but OMG how frustrating this book was. It read like a research paper with a random couple of sentences that would remind you it was a romance novel. Not only that, but it was an over the top research paper. It was like she was trying to impress you with all the info she knows - what or what not to do in the world of endurance riding. I’m sure if I kept going maybe I would eventually hit a story, bu [...]

    Another story about Jackson Hole and this book is about Slade McPherson who owns a ranch that he is having a hard time paying the bills on. He knows that if he can win the endurance race, he can put that money into the range and be ok but an accident puts him out of the competition. Dr. Jordana Lawton has decided that she can win this race and save the ranch and herself in the meantime. Interesting book about the training and the others who also want to win this long distance race. There are a l [...]

    A bit predictable, the characters were okay.But, why do many authors just have their characters jump into marriage straight away. I'm not against marriage, but with these two, they only shared a few kisses before the race, and one intimate moment after the race, then their getting married. How about seeing if they can stand to live with each other first. See if they actually have things in common. But that wouldn't make for a good story, would it?

    Leah
    I've not finished the book yet. I'm going to try to finish it, but it is a stuggle. I'll say it had potential but definitely didn't meet expectation. What drove me craziest is the author flip flopped between calling the character Jordana LawSon and Jordan LawTon. Also, at some point in the book the term "just desert" is used. lol Distracting!

    Bagus, penggambaran perjuangan Jordan untuk memenangkan lomba ketahanan dengan memakai kudanya Slade. Romance mereka juga oke. Walaupun yang agak aneh, Jordan ini kan dokter UGD kok ya staminanya kuat banget habis praktek masih bisa latihan berkuda berjam2.Baca di iJak

    I liked the overall concept of the story, but the execution was very poor. Changes in the point of view made it hard to understand, information that was already established was repeated multiple times, non existent characters were talked about in depth, etc Very disappointed.

    Jez
    This is only a three if you enjoy horses or horse sports (in this case endurance). I doubt I would of finished it if not for that. I got a little tired of the sexual euphemisms and the only actual sex was a blip at the end.

    Oh so good! There were many situations I could relate too that Slade tormented over. All I can say is never underestimate the power of a bull! Also the unveiling of Jordana & Slade romance tie it all together for a great kindle-read.

    I liked the slow development of the romantic relationship. The other characters in the story were a little choppy and not as well developed.
