I’ve read Anne McAllister before and she writes some nice and charming love stories no doubt. “The Cowboy And The Kid” is actually one of her better works than others.


Written from the point of view of a 7 year old, interwoven between Jones Taggert and Felicity Albright, “The Cowboy And The Kid” is really a charming love story as Becky tries to set her rodeo cowboy Dad with her teacher. Becky wants a mother and who better than her favorite and pretty teacher.


Taggert and Felicity try to resist each other against all odds as people throw them into each other’s paths. Between teaching Felicity bull riding and she warming her way into his heart with her kindness, resilience and persistence, it’s not too long before these two fall for each other and make one kid damn happy.

Anne McAllister did a pretty good job with this story and I actually enjoyed reading it. Taggert and Felicity did take their own sweet time getting together, but the narration kept it interesting along with the supporting characters and a glimpse into the world of bull riding.
