My Review of Sunsets in Colorado by Milan Watson
Sunsets in Colorado is a fast-paced and short romance read. I like how the story started and how the emotions were played at the start. I must say I had the best moments when Lewis’ father expressed his apology to his daughters and when he talked about his late wife and their love story.
I would want to like Tanner because he is possessive of Lewis and he knows immediately that he loves her. I think I am just missing some more depth on the conflict and a bit of roller coaster of emotions to play more in the story because the author made me feel deeply at some point in the story. I would want to see more steamy adventures or just some kinds of adventure between the two in such a beautiful setting. The steamy scenes are not too explicit and in a way, I did expect more. I cringed at some of Tanner’s lines in the ending because I think it’s too mushy for my taste.
But, with these things aside, Sunsets in Colorado is a short, fun, sweet, and in some parts emotional read. I think I just expected more from Tanner as a cowboy hero. Cowboy romance is one of my favorite tropes and I like reading this kind of story. Overall, I love this kind of read and I’m giving it a 4.5 rating.
