The Trouble with Texas Cowboys by Carolyn Brown

Book Description:
Can a girl ever have too many cowboys?
No sooner does pint-sized spitfire Jill Cleary set foot on Fiddle Creek Ranch than she finds herself in the middle of a hundred-year-old feud. Quaid Brennan and Tyrell Gallagher are both tall, handsome, and rich...and both are courting Jill to within an inch of her life. She's doing her best to give these feuding ranchers equal time-too bad it's dark-eyed Sawyer O'Donnell who makes her blood boil and her hormones hum...

My Thoughts:
This was an enjoyable romance read.  Jill Cleary has come back home and landed smack dab in the middle of a feud.  Sawyer O'Donnell has taken a job at the ranch the two families are feuding over.  Jill and Sawyer are caught in the middle of an old power struggle and the two families are determined to use their 'prime stock' (aka hotties)to lure them into relationships and land.  Quaid and Tyrell are after Jill and she decides to give each a chance.  The problem is, neither of their kisses make her feel what her bunk-mate, Sawyer's, do. I absolutely loved the way Sawyer and Jill met.  Add to that meeting that both were asked out by members of the feuding families within minutes of each other and the story is off.  The fact that neither was the other's type and they were supposed to be sharing a bunk house, you knew it wasn't going to be that simple!  The author does a good job with stringing you along with the romance side of it.  The pushier the hotties from the feuding families got, the more entrenched Jill and Sawyer became in not letting them get their way.  Some of the things that went on in the feud were crazy, some ridiculous and others just plain weird.
It was  a 3/5 for me.  I liked the quick romantic read, but some of it got to be a little much.
