Love Drunk Cowboy made the NYT Bestseller list AND the USA TODAY Best Seller List



"Humor and down-home charm make this a first-place prize winner. All the character quirks and small-town appeal are used to the fullest advantage. This is one book that you won’t want to put down for anything and wish would never end. Summary: Not a lot goes on in Cadillac, Texas, at least the Blue-Ribbon Jalapeño Society doesn’t know about. It’s time for the Society’s annual jubilee, and things get complicated. Aunt Agnes has declared war on Violet Prescott, the president of the Society. When the jubilee is over, and Cadillac is still standing, Four friends will stick together through ups and downs, marriages and divorces." 4 star review, RT REVIEWS

"This is Ms. Brown's first book in the women's fiction genre and I for one can not wait for the next installment. I'm sure I will be reading this one over and over again." -Fresh Fiction

"Ruthless gossip, philandering husbands, flawless makeup, hunky bartenders and true friendship bring Cadillac, Texas, into vivid focus. Brown (Just a Cowboy and his Baby, 2012, etc.) brings her cowboy-romance writing talents to bear on this hilarious tale of women in a gossipy small town. Fast-paced, the intertwined tales collide along a bumpy road toward a surprising calamity at the jalapeño jubilee. A high-spirited, romantic page turner. " -Kirkus

ROMANTIC TIMES: Don’t let this title deter you; Honky Tonk Chris tmas is not so much a holiday romp as it is a sweet romance that really stresses the chemistry that builds between two highly likable characters. Unlike Brown’s previous Honky Tonk series novels, it does not feature a whirlwind romance but a more mature, slower-paced relationship that continues to deepen. Readers with children or those seeking a more realistic, relatable romance will enjoy this cozy bright contemporary romance.

ROMANCE STUDIO:  I'm going to be rereading this one for years to come. This book makes me believe in Christmas miracles and long slow kisses under the mistletoe. So grab your holiday hottie and boot-scoot to the old jukebox.

BOOKLIST:  Brown concludes her country-music-themed, sassy contemporary romance series with happy endings galore for the owners and several regular customers of the bar, liberally lacing this pleasing novel with all the local color and humorous repartee her fans adore.


LONG & SHORT REVIEWS: Want a book filled with red-hot chemistry, a nasty antagonist, and a rollicking honky tonk? Then you need to read My Give a Damn’s Busted. I give this book 4.5 books.

ROMANTIC TIMES: Brown’s wit and humor shine in the third Honky Tonk novel, contributing to the zany and fast-paced tale and lovable characters. You don’t need to be a fan of country music, line-dancing and farming to enjoy the country fun.

BOOKLIST: The third tale in Brown’s sassy contemporary romance series (I Love This Bar, 2010) set at the Honky Tonk continues her home-grown, humorous, country-music-themed stories, with Jo Dee Messina’s popular song running throughout.

THE ROMANCE STUDIO: ... kick up those cowboy boots and enjoy another happily-ever-after romance from a lady who sure can cowboy up!


DREAM WORLD BOOK REVIEWS: Carolyn Brown makes her female protagonists incredibly saucy and dynamic, which I believe is the key factor behind really appreciating the wit and humor of all the novels in the Honky Tonk series. Despite being a city-girl myself, I love the bold country attitude of Larissa, which will please all contemporary romance readers no matter what your geographical preference. As with the previous Honky Tonk romance novels, My Give a Damn's Busted does contain exaggerated melodrama, but regardless is still tremendously fun and entertaining. Because this is a romance (and we all know they rarely ever end up being sad), we can count on the formula of a happily-ever-after ending, but it's the ride that counts. Carolyn Brown really does provide a feel-good novel that will make you smile and feel luckier in love!


COFFEE TIME ROMANCE AND MORE:  Rating: 5 Cups. Hell, Yeah is a fun, quirky read. One with entertaining characters, a steamy romance, and even a bit of mystery thrown in the mix. This is one series you will not want to miss out on. Add it to your bookshelf soon. Kudos Ms. Brown on an outstanding job with your latest release.

FRESH FICTION: What's a redneck girl supposed to do. The Honky Tonk is restocked with some fine new characters, lively dialog and toe tapping music. Oh right it's a book -- but I swear you can hear the jukebox loud and clear. If I Love This Bar didn't make you a fan of Carolyn Brown -- this book will certainly put her on your must read list. Hell Yeah you will love this book. Enjoy.


ROMANTIC TIMES: RT Rating: (4/5 Stars) The second book in Brown‘s Honky Tonk series is perfect for readers who love escaping into the dreamy and blissful flirtations this romance is sure to bring. City and country gals alike will enjoy this fun, sassy and fast-paced romance that stands strongly on its own even if you missed its predecessor, I Love This Bar. Brown does an amazing job creating a down-home atmosphere. 


CHERYL'S BOOK NOOK: Hell Yeah is the latest honky tonk novel from author, Carolyn Brown. The best thing about these books are the sexy cowboys. Carolyn Brown does for the book world…what wrangler jeans does for cowboys…they are both a perfect fit!



From Booklist

*Starred Review* Daisy O’Dell, owner of the Honky Tonk beer joint, is well liked in the community. Her skills as a veterinary tech are often put to use since no one else is qualified to take care of the pets and other animals owned by the good folks of Erath County, Texas. Tricked into a friendship with Chigger, the town’s “almost” prostitute, and pursued by handsome Jarod McElroy, Daisy finds her nice, predictable, orderly life thrown into a tailspin. How could she be good enough for Jarod, she asks herself. After all, what sort of man would be seriously interested in a bartender? Besides, she’s already escaped one abusive relationship. Jarod is only in town to help his elderly uncle with his ranch, and his list of tasks doesn’t include getting involved with a woman. Underlying themes of self-confidence and self-identity run throughout this sometimes humorous, sometimes touching story; and Brown’s fans will be pleased to reconnect with her trademark cast of quirky characters. Readers who enjoyed Pamela Morsi’s Red’s Hot Honky-Tonk Bar (2009) will also take to Brown’s latest. --Shelley Mosley
