Cowboys Down by Barbara Elsborg

Stockbroker meets stock breaker. But who’s taming whom?
London stockbroker Jasper Randolph flies to Jackson Hole with hopes as high as the Grand Tetons. Hope that the getaway will force him to let loose, get dirty, and overcome a deep-seated phobia about horseback riding.
He hadn’t counted on an attraction to the dude ranch owner’s son, a man with sun-tousled hair, eyes bluer than Wyoming skies…and a father who’d rather eat tofu than accept his only son’s sexuality.
The moment Calum lays eyes on the uptight, buttoned-down Brit, he’s lost. But with his own saddlebags full of emotional baggage, he knows he should be looking at anything but Jasper’s spotless riding boots and tight-fitting jodhpurs. Trouble is, Jasper makes his heart buck like a wild horse trying to break free.
Despite the differences that set them oceans apart, they fall hard and fast. Trouble isn’t far behind, and they’re in for a rocky romantic ride. Especially since there’s growing evidence that someone is willing to do anything—no matter how dangerous—to poison their love.
Warning: Mix one sun-bronzed cowboy with a yummy Brit who’d give Darcy in his wet shirt a run for his money. Mix gently. Try not to drool.

I'm thinking on how to describe this book, it was really good I liked the plot the whole yummy brit coming to america for vacation to a ranch where said brit meets hot cowboy was Awesome. The main characters, Jasper who has had more than his fair share of a horrible life, is just the sweetest most adorable person i loved him instantly, Calum the hot cowboy whose so confused and trying to make everyone else happy instead of his self took me alittle while to like but i got there eventually. I couldn't bring myself to like any of the secondary characters in this book not one, it seemed everyone had an arterial motive. What i really didn't like was all the drama almost to much drama, i mean if i was jasper i would have left right after i had got there and then the crap he went through i'd have sued the hell outta everybody. It seemed just too much for one person to have to go through and no one to really stand up for him I mean eventually Calum did but for me it was a little too little too late.
Still that being said i liked the ending and would recommend reading this book but with plenty of tissues.
