✱✱Book Review✱✱ Mother Bucker (Dirty Cowboy) by Elle Thorpe


Getting pregnant then realising your baby daddy is a cheating, lying, scumbag? That happened.

But then Abel James walks into my life. One hot look from the broad-shouldered cowboy and I’m ready for all the sexy fun I won’t be having once I start showing.

Only one problem. He’s my father’s best friend and almost twenty years older than me.

He’s off limits. I’m completely forbidden. Even if the spark between us is undeniable.

So I get on a plane to Australia. One last trip to visit friends and work on their cattle station before I come home and face my future as a single mom.

But when I get on the plane, Abel is sitting next to me, running away for reasons of his own.

So now we have three months. Three months of sharing a bathroom. Three months of seeing each other every day, while trying to pretend there’s nothing between us but friendship.

Three months of falling in love with him, while keeping the biggest secret of my life.

Mother Bucker is a forced-proximity, father’s best friend, age gap romance. It has all the small-town cowboy vibes you love, with all the spice and a happily ever after. It can be read as a standalone.

Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Elle Thorpe saved the best for last in the Dirty Cowboys series. They've all been great, but Abel and Callie take it up a notch. Part of that could be the age-gap trope, which is one of my favorite romance tropes (maybe because I had my own age-gap romance for close to 20 years). Then again, it could just be that Abel is an absolute swoony sweetheart and everything the feisty Callie needed in her life. Whatever the reason, I couldn't get enough of this couple. It's not hard to figure out where the relationship angst is gonna come from., and to be honest, I felt like the response was justified. Of course, that bit of angst makes for a big makeup gesture, and I'll just say that it was pretty darn perfect.
I hated to see this series come to a close, but I feel like this was a good way to finish it up. It was nice to get to visit with so many past couples. So, if you like age-gap romance or cowboys, I'd suggest giving this one a read. Even if you don't care for the trope, I'd say check it out anyway. I'm betting you'll not be disappointed.
