Synopsis:

ATTENTION: If you have been a victim of false advertising, you may be entitled to compensation. If you were ever hired to take care of a fourteen-year-old boy’s knee injury on a luxury ranch in the Middle of Nowhere, Utah, but that fourteen-year-old boy ended up being a tall, rough-and-tumble, muscular, one-hundred-percent all-man cowboy by the name of Rhett Jameson, you may have been put at risk for falling in love. Please seek counsel immediately.

Dear Counselor,

It was supposed to be simple favor for my very important boss, Frank Kaminsky of the Salt Lake Slammers professional basketball team—go to his good friend Tex Jameson’s luxury ranch and provide personal medical care for his recently injured teenage son.

I thought it’d be a working vacation of sorts—a chance for my city-girl self to experience something I would never otherwise do—but everything is upside down, and absolutely nothing is as I thought it would be.

For one, this patient is not a teenage boy.
He’s a real-life, blue-eyed, tough-as-nails, thirtysomething cowboy who is so darn strong he looks like he could lift a car just for the heck of it.

He’s also stubborn, rude, and we don’t get along…at all.

Add in the heart-melting vision of him as a single father to the cutest little girl on the planet, and I’ve found myself in a whole different dimension of trouble.

Lust. Feelings. A whole lot of enemies-to-lovers-style complication.

Please help me. My name is Dr. Leah Levee, I am a victim of false advertising, and if I’m not careful, this Grumpy Cowboy might just be the death of me.


Reading a Max Monroe book is one of my favorite things to do. I can always count on them to make me laugh. They definitely accomplished that with Grumpy Cowboy. This enemies to lovers romance was so much fun. Rhett Jameson, grumpy cowboy extraordinaire, put Leah through the rank ringer and it was hilarious. I felt sorry for her at times. She was just trying to do the job she was hired to do, but Rhett was not making it easy for her. I loved the way she handled it. Those two were perfect for each other. I also really loved Rhett’s daughter, Joey. She was so freaking adorable and added so many entertaining moments herself. This slow burn romance was a win for me.

    1. I think this one might be one of theirs you wouldn’t mind. It should be in KU.

    1. You would love this one then! I also just read Karla Sorensen’s Forbidden that has a dad with a little girl. Both are great books.

  1. I am laughing reading the synopsis! This sounds like it will be hilarious! Enemies to lovers is one of my favourite tropes and it sounds like this works out perfectly! 🙂
