Roping Melanie by Melissa Ellen is now live! + My Review

Single Mom? Nope. Not me. Ever.


Roping Melanie by Melissa Ellen is now live!


I didn’t have a lot, but what I had I was proud of.

I was raised to keep my head down and work hard.

I followed the rules, rarely straying off the straight and narrow path.

That’s why when the opportunity to get wild and have a little fun presented itself, I jumped on it—or more like on him. The handsome cowboy from the bar.

It was one night in Vegas.

Afterward, all I had was the memory of his body pressed to mine and the hotel room key I swiped as I snuck out.

I never expected to see him again.

I definitely never imagined he’d show up in my small hometown seven years later, only to discover the daughter he never knew about.

Swoon worthy goodness! I love this small town romance series with terrific town folks and lots of hot hunks and young beauties ready to fall in love. This features Melanie the fabulous single mom, new bar manager, loving daughter and all around sweetheart. She’s keeping it all together when the old adage “what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” failed her big time. That 21st birthday gift from the sexy bull rider was the gift of a lifetime. I love Mel and her sweet daughter Avery. I understand her reasons for her decision about Avery’s father but it’s 7 years later and it’s time to fess up when the handsome cowboy Nash shows up in Billingsley. Whew, he’s a hot hunk and a dream of a man. Almost too good to be true. The relationship he builds with his daughter is a thing of beauty. Plus that old chemistry between Nash and Mel is alive and sizzling. They’re one hot couple. A bit of drama at the end that wasn’t too much of a surprise and it got our couple to a good place. Loved the epilogue. Could be a peek of things to come with Nash’s 4 brothers. I could go for a series with sexy Wyoming cowboys. Shout out to Nash’s wonderful twin Meg and Mel’s bestie Olivia. They lookout for their loved ones. This is a quick, easy read with delightful characters and a wonderful small town atmosphere. I hope this isn’t the end of this fantastic series. I want more Billingsley’s love!


Meet Melissa

I’m an indie author that focuses on contemporary romance with a little bit of everything: humor, angst and sometimes suspense. A Reason To Stay, book one of the Blackwood Series, was my debut novel.

I grew up as a book worm, reading anything and everything and still try to read at least a book a week. I’ve always had an active imagination. Luckily, I now have time to put it to good use writing about characters that are constantly swarming around in my head.

I went from designing buildings to crafting stories. I’m a creative entrepreneur and coffee connoisseur.
