    Another great book in the Sweetwater Ranch Series. Ryker is a millionaire and he has to throw a ball and marry the girl of his dreams during the ball. It's a stipulation in his contract, if he doesn't then he forfeits his inheritance. It's a Cinderellla story except instead of the evil stepsisters these are just lazy step sisters. They want and expect Nell to do whatever they ask her to do. She does whatever they tell her because if she doesn't her StepDa will threaten to throw her out.

The Narrator Jay Dyess does an excellent job with the voices and really makes you involved in the story. He does an awesome job. Looking forward to the next book in the series. So glad that I read a Jessie Gussman story.

    [BOOK 6 OF THE SWEET WATER RANCH SERIES: FORMERLY TITLED "COWBOYS DON'T BELIEVE IN FAIRY TALES"; NOW TITLED "THE COWBOY'S FAIRY TALE"] A Cinderella-flavored story I generally like Cinderella stories, but I have to agree with those who found Nell's story to be a bit too frustrating & depressing. Ryder comes across as overly passive at times, but at least by the end his armor really shines. I did really enjoy the fairytale ending *Clean romance level: sweet kisses, nothing graphic [BOOK 6 OF THE SWEET WATER RANCH SERIES: FORMERLY TITLED "COWBOYS DON'T BELIEVE IN FAIRY TALES"; NOW TITLED "THE COWBOY'S FAIRY TALE"] A Cinderella-flavored story I generally like Cinderella stories, but I have to agree with those who found Nell's story to be a bit too frustrating & depressing.

    Great story with some elements of Cinderella retold in a modern tale but with lots of differences as well. Clean and no swearing. Some former characters from a previous story make a brief appearance but this story can be read as a stand-alone. Since the start of this one I’ve been sooooo curious about “Preacher” and I can’t wait to read his story. This book does end on a bit of a cliffhanger with the intent for the reader to learn Preacher’s story next. I’m looking forward to reading it!

    Exciting A bit different, this story is a modern telling of Cinderella! And I was halfway through the book before I realized it! A very sweet story of love overcoming all! Great read!

    Overall, I enjoyed this as an audiobook. I have never been big into fairy tales (Snow White, Cinderella, etc) however, I did like the description of this story. The beginning was a bit too Cinderella (complete with evil step sisters) for my taste and I felt the main female character was very weak (although the reason for this was somewhat explained later in the book--making it a little understandable--although I kept wanting her to get more of a backbone early in the book).

However, as the book progressed, this Cinderella retelling took on it's own unique storyline and I ended up really enjoying the book by the end. The narrator is wonderful with a very smooth but a little rough quality at the same time. He really made the story come to life. I will look to listen/read other stories of this series. I received a copy of the audiobook for free from the author at my request and am leaving this honest review voluntarily.

    This book was well written with an interesting story line and likable, well developed characters. The audio was well done by the narrator. I really enjoyed reading this book - there was only one draw back for me. Some of the language. Now, this story was clean with no cuss words, per se, but there were what I would consider questionable words in the story. This might not bother some people, but if this were the first book I had read by Jessie Gussman, I probably wouldn't read any more.

He is a billionaire and he has to choose his wife in a formal ball with mask in his ranch Swet Water. Can they find each other and have a chance to love? the audioobook is great. Jessie's stories are awesome and Mr. Dyess tells them beautifully

    I loved the message and the sweet fairytale retelling of Nell, a woman who believes that we can all choose happiness, just like Paul and Silas did (Acts 16:25), even when we are sad and mistreated. This happiness calls to Ryder, who sees the true beauty of this Cinderella in green sockhat (beanie, toboggan, knitted cap, whatever you call it). Will his reluctance to give up the life he’s always known prevent him from letting go of his control and choosing happiness for himself?

    This book has elements of Cinderella in it. I really loved Nell’s heart and smile and choice to be happy and gracious. I think it’s something sorely lacking in our world today. I also liked Ryder and his reasonings and how things came along as he worked through his thoughts and feelings. I was excited to be introduced to a couple characters that we’ll see in upcoming books.

    Yep. A fairy tale. If the story of Ford and Morgan was North Dakota's version of Beauty and the Beast, this is a tale of "North Dakota Cinderella"! Definitely not the Disney version: no singing birds, no pumpkins. Nell, with her sweet nature and her ability to smile in the face of hardship and to serve others, reminded me of my precious grandmother.

    This is like a retelling of Cinderella except the stepfather is the mean one & the step-sisters are not so mean but are selfish. At least the billionaire is nice & get's jealous.

    Another winner for this rather unusual series. I had a hard time getting through parts of it just because I hate it when characters are deviously mean. This is very much a Cinderella story. It also thankfully includes some good old fashioned Christian principles tho is not at all preachy.

    Review I enjoyed this book although I had a hard time relating to main female character. In my defense I've never been that selfless or giving. However, I do believe in fairy tales and happily ever afters.

    A great spin on fairy tales! This is one of my favorites in this series so far! While rooting for a main character I’m also hoping for the horrible, hurtful ones to get their comeuppance.

    Ok read The Cowboy's Fairy Tale is based on the old Cinderella tale. Mean and selfish step sisters, a drunk step father, a rich rancher, and a will. Cleanly written, no surprises, and a happy ending.

    Definitely a fairy tale. It was interesting, kept up interest, and no issues with the writing, so I gave it 5 stars even though there was a lot about the main characters that annoyed me. He might have had a little more sense and backbone dealing with the harpy who was chasing him, and I did not find Nell all that admirable in some respects.

Yes, she was dutiful, loved and revered her mom, and wanted to do what her mom had advocated. But she could have done a lot of that and handled things and herself differently. I can understand that Nell was afraid to call her stepdad's bluff, although I am certain when faced with a period of time without her the sisters & their dad would have been at each other's throats and all of them begging her to come back, because they sure did not want to handle any of the work & neither sister had bothered or been required to learn to cook or take care of much of anything. But she was also stupid in other respects- she has a place to stay away from the home. She knows what her stepsisters, especially Beth are like. To have taken her gift dress to the family home or offered the shoes, even if she thought they would not fit was so dumb. Of course Beth is going to take it-she takes everything- even if she can't use something or doesn't really want it, she will take it to be mean, and bully Nell. Nell is apparently not the sharpest crayon in the box. Trying to keep the peace and be as happy as you can does not mean you have to throw yourself done to let others wipe their feet on you when there is an alternative. Nell should have kept her nice things in the room Ryder gave her to stay in while working at the ranch and zipped her mouth about them- if you didn't show Beth, there would be no problem, and certainly never told B Beth she could change there- throwing herself on the doorstep again. Offering things to people like that only encourages their abuse, it is not going to get them to be nice in return.

    Kept my interest As I read the first few pages I thought I wasn’t going to like this book, but as I got into more, it drew my interest. I have to say this was one of my FAVORITE so far out of this series. I actually laughed out loud though out the entire book. Like that it jumped right into the action.

Nell Ryder is a cynical, divorced businessman who has to follow his eccentric uncle’s instructions in order to inherit the business he has been running for years, along with other financial holdings. He must hold a masked ball and select a bride to marry the night of the ball. Not wanting to lose to lose the business and the wealth that comes with it, he reluctantly agrees to the ball and to live in North Dakota on his uncle’s ranch for a year. He believes he sees another divorce in his future. Nell is a hardworking and selfless woman, who puts up with the tyranny of her stepfather and stepsisters in order to keep her promise to her late mother. She promised to always take care of her young half-brother and she can only do that if she stays in her stepfathers’s good graces and does the work he tells her to do. If she doesn’t, she must leave the ranch that has been in her family for generations and her young brother who she loves as if he were her own son. Ryder and Nell meet when he stops to help change her flat tire. Seeing the fine clothes and his car, Nell doubts that he can be of much help, but surprisingly, he has no problem changing her tire without getting his clothes soiled. Before he leaves her to go on her way, he hands her a piece of paper and a box. Later, she finds a pair of beautiful glittery shoes in the box, that unfortunately seem to big, and the paper turns out to be an invitation to a masked ball. She also notices the note at the bottom of the paper that indicates a need for maids and servants to help during the ball. She decides to apply for a job so that she can put more money away. She is trying to save for a time when she can take her young brother away from the ranch. Her stepsisters always leave Nell to do all the work, and when they see the invitation and the shoes, they help themselves to both. Nell’s good friends buy her a dress for the ball to thank her for caring for their children, but that is also commandeered by one of her stepsisters. When Nell applies for a job to work at the ball, she once again meets the handsome man who came to her rescue. Ryder finds himself hopelessly drawn to Nell, just like the day he found her with a flat tire. He makes sure she gets hired not only for the night of the ball, but for the weeks leading up to the event to help with preparations. He even advocates for her young brother to spend time at his uncle’s ranch as well. As preparations for the ball get underway, Ryder and Nell come to know each other, and their mutual attraction grows into something neither expected. Both know that a future together is unlikely. He must marry to secure his inheritance, and she would not fit into his high society, wealthy world, or be happy in it. Yet, even though others conspire to keep them apart, they find themselves making plans for a future together that could make them both happy. Will they be able to attain their happily ever after or will their conspirators succeed in tearing them apart? This story is a modern take on the Cinderella fairytale with a few twists and surprises. It is sweet, thoughtful and perceptive, and offers a great deal of humour and lightness. Totally captivating and delightful! I received an ARC of this book and I am voluntarily leaving an honest review.

    Nell was worse than an indentured servant in her stepfather's house because she wasn't even paid. She was treated poorly by her stepfather and her stepsisters. Since her mother's death, she was determined to take care of her young stepbrother. And it was for that purpose that she put up with their treatment of her. One night on a lonely snowy highway in North Dakota, she had a flat and before she could change the tire, a handsome stranger stopped to help. He was dressed in expensive clothes and Nell was worse than an indentured servant in her stepfather's house because she wasn't even paid. She was treated poorly by her stepfather and her stepsisters. Since her mother's death, she was determined to take care of her young stepbrother. And it was for that purpose that she put up with their treatment of her. One night on a lonely snowy highway in North Dakota, she had a flat and before she could change the tire, a handsome stranger stopped to help. He was dressed in expensive clothes and drove an expensive sports car. He left her with an invitation to a fairytale ball to be held in a couple of months and a striking pair of fancy silver shoes that looked too big to fit her feet. Instead of going to the ball, she was determined to get hired as a server for the ball so she could make some money of her own. When she went to the Sweet Valley Ranch to apply for the job, she discovered her friend, Clay "Preacher" worked as the foreman at the ranch. He gave her a glowing recommendation and before she left, she met up with the handsome stranger from the tire incident, Ryder. She didn't know his roll on the ranch but he was sure nice to look at but completely out of her league. Nell was unlike any woman Ryder had ever met. She was kind, smiling, genuine and wholesome. She was guileless and only did things to help others, not to take advantage. I won't give away the rest of the story, but suffice to say, just like Cinderella, there is a happy ending but not an easy one to get to. I have read several books by this author, and several in this series. I love her style and the way she helps you to connect with the characters. You feel like you could be friends, and you are always cheering for the underdog. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants an uplifting, clean romance that give you all the good feels. I was given an arc copy of this book and I willingly ad enthusiastically offer my honest review.

Alt Money doesn’t buy true love… Nell Eastler is the unpaid help in her own family but if she complains her stepfather will throw her out and she won’t be there for her little brother, Vinton. Ryder Peterson has only a few short weeks left before he must choose his bride at a Cinderella-style ball, or else he will lose billions of dollars along with his company, because of the terms of his uncles will. They come together unexpectedly when Ryder stops to change Nell’s flat tire during a snowstorm. Although they have never met, Ryder is compelled to give her a flyer for his ball which includes an employment ad and a box containing a pair of shoes. When Nell applies for a job at Sweet Valley Ranch, she discovers that her friend Clay “Preacher” Stryker is working there as ranch foreman. Clay is able to convince her stepfather to allow Nell to accept the job as long as Vinton can accompany her as a playmate for Ryder’s nephew. Nell is sweet tempered and wholesome, unlike any woman Ryder has ever met but she would not fit into his busy world in New York and Nell understands that she can’t compete with Michelle, the woman chosen for Ryder by his sister. The story is a beautiful western romance with a happily ever after. I like that it has a clean, sweet plot with family values. I received an advance copy but my opinion is honest and voluntary. It is well written and I enjoyed reading it.
