Jennas Cowboy (The Callahans of Texas, Book 1)
Sharon Gillenwater: List of Books by Author Sharon Gillenwater
With an emphasis on simple acts of love, Jenna's Cowboy gives romance readers what they want most: a love story with a Texas touch. Oh wow. Where do I start? I've read so many books about cowboys and ranchers, but this book really does sound more realistic than most books out there. Nate is a former serviceman, back in the States after serving in combat overseas. He is home, but his adjustment period is anything but normal.

It's a beautiful story. Jenna's Cowboy is emotionally-gripping and beautifully done romance. I think I ran through all of my feelings in a good way while reading Jenna's Cowboy. The characters of Jenna and Nate have been through so much, Jenna a divorce and Nate service to the country in Iraq and Afghanistan. The romance is set up from the beginning so the book is more about Nate's healing as the romance progresses. There are a few surprises along the way and the plot moves at a wonderful pace. There is never a dull moment and some moments you will feel tears in your eyes and some you will be laughing.
One other thing I really liked was the fact that they were both Christian from the start of the book, they were not perfect, but they both had a strong belief in God. So the Christianity was just there through the whole book and the whole book was a testimony to believing in God and trusting Him to know what is best for your life. The characterization is also stunning, Nate and Jenna who are fleshed out so well I feel like I am friends with the two.
Jenna's son Zack adds another interesting dimension to the story - I can just imagine this adorable little toddler and his speaking sounds so much like my boys when they were little ones.

I loved getting to know the Callahan family and look forward to getting to know them better in future books. Will and Chance are interesting as Jenna's brothers and Nate's friends and look forward to them finding women of their own. Sue and Dub are also great as the parents to the clan. I like how Dub is tough yet deep down he is a teddy bear. He also makes some mistakes but like Jenna and Nate, he makes good on them. Jenna's Cowboy should fit with anyone who loves the romance genre - Nate and Jenna are one of those perfect-for-each other couples and I enjoyed getting to know them for the time it took to read the book.
The small town of Callahan's Crossing is also wonderful - this is one of those Texas towns where football is king, but the family is still most important and neighbors help neighbors when they need it. This is also a book that will stay with me because of the subject matter it deals with. I knew little to nothing about Post-traumatic stress disorder and how it can affect our soldiers.
Now I feel a little more informed and it will make me pray each day for the men and women who are serving our country whether here at home or abroad fighting the war on terror. Thank you to Ms.

Gillenwater for highlighting this disorder and the love and support needed to get through it. This was wonderfully written. It is a touching story of friendship, first loves, and second chances.
He crossed his arms and leaned against the truck fender with a smile, his silver-gray eyes twinkling. How could his eyes have gotten even more beautiful? He scanned the jack waiting near the right rear of the pickup, the tire-iron still hanging on a lug-nut, and the spare tire lying on the ground. As he brushed a strand of light sandy brown hair off his forehead, his gaze flickered to the ice cream before meeting hers. Jenna hesitated for a second, then chided herself. This was Nate, her friend.
