My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Who doesn't love to read about a fish out of water? RHINESTONE COWGIRL is a great romantic comedy. Watching "Miss Beverly Hills" flourish in podunk America was extremely entertaining.

Poppy Dumphy looks like sex on a stick when she hops out of her rental car teetering on her stilettos and smelling good enough to eat. After taking in the view of her too high heels and too short shorts, Cale Hollander decides that Poppy looks like a whole lotta trouble that he and the little town of Rowdy, TX don't need right now.

Poppy is certainly out of her element--she is surrounded by strange people in a strange town and no one seems to like her much mostly because they can't get past her designer duds and posh zip code. "Pretty little princess", that's what everyone in town calls Poppy when they think she can't hear them, but she hears them and it hurts, but she is there for one reason and one reason only and it's not to win a popularity contest. On the outside, it might look like she has the perfect life of a princess but she is living proof that all that glitters is not gold.

The only blip in the story was how the events unfold with the former rodeo star, Kib. Honestly, it took way too long to get to the heart of the matter where he was concerned and I never quite understood why. I would have preferred that aspect of the story to have developed much earlier so the focus could be more on strengthening their bond and her relationship with Cale.

Cale and Poppy have great synergy. They stir up so many emotions in each other, but she really gets him going. It's like she is the red flag to his raging bull. When they finally give in to temptation, it's fireworks galore!

If you love cowboys and city girls, this is just the perfect book to rope you in for a weekend of fun and sexy romance.
