Julie's relationship with her ex-boyfriend was awful and that scarred her for life. She's strong and she's determined to make the best of the chances she gets. I liked that about her and I loved reading about her personal growth. A lot was taken from her, but she doesn't feel sorry for herself, she works on getting it back. I admired that and enjoyed reading about her progress.

Julie and Lawson are both wonderful and that is a big part of the charm of the story. Welcome Home Cowboy is a story about emotional boundaries, loss and hope. It's has many different layers and Annie Rains describes them all very well. Her writing is heartwarming and she makes the readers come close to her main characters. They know exactly what they thinking and feeling and I really liked that.

The descriptions of the yoga exercises and life as a marine are vivid and believable. I enjoyed reading about Julie and Lawson's passions very much. Their jobs are a big part of their life and they define their personalities. It was interesting to read about what makes them feel happy and alive. I genuinely hoped they would get that back. I love stories about second chances and people who deserve a break and Welcome Home Cowboy is definitely a good one.

It was hard to connect with not only the characters but also with the story line as a whole. Even though we met both Julia and Lawson in the first book and we get to know them better in this one obviously. But their connection was strange.

Julia as we already knew was running from an abusive relationship, a bad break-up and despe ARC kindly provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Julia as we already knew was running from an abusive relationship, a bad break-up and desperate to get her life back together again. Lawson is a marine who is suffering from PTSD but is unwilling to accept that he may need some help in order to get back to active duty. While waiting to hear back if she can finally start her PTSD yoga class, Julia needed an income but nothing seemed to be working out.

Both of them are dealing with their own demons and are reluctant to get together. Of course they do and we get some deliciousness out of them. Girl goes about her own life pinning after guy then guy realizes he wants girl and try to win her back. My biggest issue would have to be with how they both acted towards the end. I was shaking my head in confusion over some of their decisions.

So all in all it was a decent read. A little glimpse intp Julie and Lawson's trip to Hawaii. I loved the short story, super cute and loved seeing how Lawson is willing to 'sacrifice' for Julie, showing just how great he is to her and worth all the trouble they went through in 'Welcome Home, Cowboy'. Fun and sexy, a perfect little thing. Original Review: This was such a lovely read, just like the first book in the series. We have Julie and Lawson, meeting for the first time in Seaside. Julie plans on working there teaching yoga to marines, and Lawson happens to be recommended to do this. I loved both these characters.

And I was super glad that Lawson might have started kinda like that, and then he turned into her biggest cheerleader. Shelves: contemporary , cowboy-romance , military , series , arc-books. Two people both battling something that if they fail will alter their worlds. Julie is trying to get her life back on track after leaving a very abusive relationship of 3yrs.

Their first meeting doesn't go well to say the least but when Lawson is order by his base psychiatrist to take Yoga classes they begin to see who each other really is even though they both know that a relationship right now would be a mistake. Definitely recommended. I enjoyed this book as much as I enjoyed the 1st book in this series. I'm hoping that the next book is on Griffin another best friend of Lawson's because he's so cocky I can't wait to see him fall.

I loved these characters and also the side characters. I felt I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read.

I recommend this book. Dec 10, Kari rated it really liked it Shelves: , kindle. Welcome Home, Cowboy is the second book in the Hero's Welcome series. I enjoyed the first one and I can honestly say I liked this one even more. This is Julie and Lawson's story. Julie is Kat's sister from the first book.

She has returned home after ending an abusive relationship and is trying to focus on finding a job and new life. Lawson is fighting his PTSD that prevents him from getting back into a helicopter after a devastating accident during the war. I really loved this couple together. I liked how they started out as friends and it slowly built into love. Both of them were struggling, but gave each other the strength to go after what they wanted. I wanted to drop kick Lawson at one point because he was so blind, but he redeemed himself nicely!

I have never been a fan of yoga the couple of times I tried it, but after reading this book, I am wondering if I should give it another try. Maybe it will eventually help me with stress reduction. Just like Lawson, I can have my mind changed. This was a great addition to the series. I look forward to Val and Griffin's story coming up later in the summer!

Mar 15, Connie N. Thanks to NetGalley for an advance copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. The characters are very appealing--quiet, interested in helping others, with solid and loving personalities. But not only do they have strong characters and good work ethics, but they are also vulnerable and caring. They both have strong family ties and are just trying to reach their dreams. They are strongly attracted Thanks to NetGalley for an advance copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

They are strongly attracted to each other from the beginning, but neither is really looking for a relationship because they are both battling their own issues, overcoming traumas in their pasts. Lawson's problem is more obvious, but Julie had trauma to work through as well in her relationship with her ex. I liked how they reached out to each other even though that wasn't their first instinct, and they had to overcome their fears. I liked Rains's writing. It was smooth and easy, and the characters were interesting. She was able to promote a discussion of the work Julie was doing with PTSD and other stress-related military problems without it being preachy.

I will definitely look for more from this author. But then it got better and better and I really liked the two, especially together. I really liked the character's path in this book. Julie starting a new life after a bad break-up and then Lawson trying to settle back into life after his war experiences and a bad accident. I found the way the story was told and how the characters struggled very authentic.

I really enjoyed reading this sweet story and also enjoyed the author's writing style. I will definetely read more. It's not my cuppa tea. A little slow, and just couldn't connect with the story or characters. Arc received for an honest review, I couldn't fault anything terrible it's just wasn't what I was looking for in a story. If you want a second chance at romance and a military background this is for you.

Great story Wonderful characters who struggle with their own demons until they trust enough to let the other in.

But being back in Seaside and running a yoga program for Military men and women with PTSD, she finds it hard to keep resisting the gorgeous Lawson Philips. Especially when she discovers he's her newest student for her program; a program he doesn't believe can be of benefit for him. However, she's determined to change his mind. After a serious helicopter crash, Lawson Philips has A relationship isn't something Julie Chandler is looking for, not after what she went through with her last boyfriend.

After a serious helicopter crash, Lawson Philips hasn't been able to do what he does best - fly, and as a Marine pilot that is what's important, especially if he wants to stay in Seaside. Seeing a psychiatrist is bad enough, but what she orders him to do to help him further is something he'd never ever do unless forced. Yet, as soon as he learns that Julie is the instructor, he's all for giving the relaxation technique a try, if only to spend as much time with her as possible. Having absolutely loved the first book of this series, I was really looking forward to reading this one, and I've got to say that it does not disappoint.

Right from the beginning, it was very entertaining and fast-paced due to Julie being in a bind. Can she convince someone that her yoga program can do wonders for those suffering PTSD? As for the dialogue, I loved every moment between Lawson and Julie, even when she's stand-offish towards the hero. Not that I could blame her after what happened with her ex. However, Lawson is different. He'd never become her ex, and it shows through how kind and caring he is. Not just towards Julie, but everything he does for his sister and niece as well. However, the dialogue is also intense due to the main characters back stories, what Lawson has to go through to find his way back to flying again and when Julie finally confronts her past.

She surprised me the way she finally finds the courage to tell her ex off, to do what she did so he couldn't ruin the huge chance she was being offered when it came to her job. Both the main and secondary characters are fantastic, and I liked that Kat and Micah, the couple from the first book made an appearance in this one. The advice each of the secondary characters offers Lawson and Julie is good for them, as it forces both to realize how good they could be together.

More so Julie than Lawson, because she deserves to be happy after the disaster of her last relationship. Her ex is a total jerk that didn't deserve her. Julie is strong, brave, tenacious and I liked how she grew throughout this story. She's quite down in the beginning because of everything that's happened in her life, but once someone gives her a chance to prove herself, she begins to shine. Begins to find that she can do anything she sets her mind to without relying on anyone besides herself.

But what I liked most about the heroine is how hard she works to prove that yoga can help lots of people. While Lawson is strong, brave, and really struggles with his dream of getting back to flying. Indeed, I felt sorry for him. He's haunted by the accident, by the fact that he couldn't save everyone. It seems that no matter what he does, or how hard he tries to get past his demons that have been niggling at him since the accident, nothing works until the timing is right and someone in trouble needs his help.

Hot sex scenes heat up the pages at the perfect moments throughout this story. Moments that illustrate the intense chemistry that is between this couple from the moment they come face-to-face. Julie needs to be sure that she can trust Lawson before giving him a chance, and he does everything to prove he can be the right man for her. Overall, Ms. Rains has penned another really good story for this series with an engaging plot, great characters and well-written dialogue that has left this reader wanting to delve into the next book as soon as its released.

The way this story ended was incredible, as Lawson found what it takes to overcome his fears -- both in his personal and professional life. Then there's the epilogue that finally ties up whether Julie is getting a niece or nephew, and how Lawson wants to take their relationship to the next level. But what he has planned isn't at all what most would think it is. I would recommend Welcome Home, Cowboy by Annie Rains, if you've read the first book of this series, or if you enjoy a hero and heroine that need each other to heal from the hurts of their pasts.

Apr 22, Beth rated it really liked it Shelves: arc , romance , sweet-heat. It is a sweet love story between two broken people and how they help each other move on and heal. What you will get is heat and passion between Lawson and Julie, but its subtler and focuses more on their connection than graphic sex scenes. There are many feels in this book and there is a great supporting cast of characters. Julie Chandler moved back home to Seaside to be close to her family again after a very bad breakup with a controlling ex-boyfriend that was also her boss.

Julie is a yoga instructor with a passion to share the benefits of yoga not only for the body, but for the mind. She is trying to convince the Veteran Center to hire her to teach yoga to active duty and retired marines and their families. Lawson Phillips is a very sexy cowboy, but he is also the ultimate macho Marine with ideas that running and lifting weights is a better stress reliever than yoga, of all things. He is under the care of a Psychologist who insists he attends these yoga classes as Lawson is unable to be near helicopters without having panic attacks.

He is soon going to be evaluated to find out if he is fit to fly again and his commander is watching him closely. If Lawson is unable to get a handle on his panic attacks he will be sent to another duty station away from his sister, niece and the beautiful, talented yoga instructor that he has grown to care for deeply. Lawson has to work with Julie on her trust issues and just as things are going well personally between Julie and Lawson, his professional career was not improving. After some contemplation he makes a bone head decision. I wanted to throw my IPad at him!

Thank goodness his sister and niece talked some sense into him and he redeemed himself! I loved this story and the characters. If you want a book with feels, some heat but done tastefully, then this is the book for you. ARC kindly provided by the publisher via Netgalley for an honest review. View 1 comment. Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title. Review: This is a sweet story of letting go of the past. It is a military romance that takes place in the town of Seaside, North Carolina and the military base located there. This is part of the Welcome Home Series, but it is a stand alone novel that can be read independently of the other books in this series.

Plot-Julie Chandler has relocated to her home town of Seaside, North Carolina after a bad break-up with her abusive boyfriend. Trying to make a new life for herself, she has developed a yoga class to help alleviate stress and the effects of PTSD. Now to convince the Marines, and the owner of the rec center that this is a viable program.

What does a person do when all they ever wanted to do was fly and now even the sound of a helicopter causes you anxiety? Forced by his psychologist to take the new yoga class, Lawson comes face to face with Julie. The beautiful girl that he keeps running into. This is a well written story where both main characters must overcome their demons so that they can make the most of their lives. The chemistry is evident between Lawson and Julie from their first meeting.

The story is paced well bringing in other characters making this a believable story. This is a happy ever after story, so, yes I loved the ending.

I loved the two of them together, I was rooting from them from start, the moment that the two of them met one another. I fell in love with the story, the plot instantly. I fell in love with Julie and Lawson. I loved Lawson since he was introduced in the first book, and I was curious about Julie and what happened to her, to come back home. Lawson, how can you not love him? How could I not? Julie deserved someone who loved her for who she was, and did not try to control. Lawson too, he deserved someone who be there for him, no matter what.

Lawson and Julie, they belonged together. Did you see the cover? Just looking at the picture will make you smile. I am already eager to see what is in store for new couple in this heartwarming series. I only read two books by this author, and I am in love. Magnificent from start to end.

Julie Chandler, has returned home to Seaside, NC, hoping to make a fresh start pitching her idea of teaching yoga as a stress-reduction reliever at the Veterans' Center there. As she's getting out of her car, a truck pulls up next to her, splashing her with rain water and mud.

She soon discovers that the driver is Captain Lawson Phillips, whom she met a year ago when her sister began dating and then married his best friend. Although the job she was hoping for doesn't really exist, she manages to get Mr. Banks, who owns the center, to agree to let her offer her yoga class for a one-month trial basis, without compensation, to see how it goes.

In the interim, she then agrees to take a part-time job as a babysitter for 4-year-old Sabrina, only to discover that she's Lawson's niece. We soon learn that Lawson, a Marine, was piloting a helicopter when he was shot down, losing one of his crew members and leaving another minus a leg.

Although getting the 4 other crew members to safety, he's been on light duty at Camp Leon ever since, and has refused to see a psychiatrist with the Naval Mental Health unit. He can't even hear the sound of a helicopter without having an anxiety attack and since being a pilot is what he's always wanted to do, he's afraid of the PTSD label. Not only does his superior officer order him meet with the psychiatrist, the psychiatrist orders him to take the new yoga class as part of his therapy.

While attracted to Julie, taking yoga is the last thing he wants to do, and, at Julie's first class, he turns it into a joke, although he is attracted to Julie, and she to him. We soon learn that Julie has issues of her own. She moved back home after running away from her 3-year relationship with Daren, her former boss and lover who had become increasingly controlling and manipulative and who had eventually struck her. She doesn't trust her judgment about men, and doesn't really want to get involved Lawson, who is doing his best to change her mind. Their sexual relationship happens rather quickly, something that didn't quite ring true for this reader.

Lawson is very charming, but Julie's resolve to focus on her job and avoid relationships, something Lawson's therapist has also advised him to do, doesn't last long. While I'm usually a sucker for a wounded warrior story, especially if said warrior has PTSD, this novel simply didn't move me, and the behavior of the characters simply didn't ring true, nor did I feel particularly sympathetic toward either of them.

When Julie, who fears her ex-boyfriend but needs a glowing job reference from him, decides to go see him alone and then practically blackmails him into giving her that reference, also seemed off, and certainly not something a woman who has been controlled and battered would do. Although this novel is well-written, I found myself questioning the decisions made and the actions and behavior of the main characters, which is why, although wanting to really like this novel, I found it an okay if slow read, but not quite up to the standard of other, more intense and dramatic wounded warrior novels I've read.

Apr 25, Karen rated it it was amazing Shelves: netgalley. The main characters in this book initially appeared in the first book of the series, Welcome to Forever. This can be read as a stand-alone, but I would recommend reading the first book in the series, as well as any future releases. This truly is an amazing series, filled with great characters and interesting storylines. Julie Chandler is a yoga teacher that has recently moved to Seaside, North Carolina, after a devastating breakup. She is determined to start over and make a new life for herself, but is unable to find a job.

Out of options, she turns to the one thing she knows best, yoga. Julie wants to be able to help soldiers suffering from PTSD, and has developed a yoga program that will help them to better handle their symptoms. She pitches the idea at the base, and is given one month to see if her program will actually be effective.

The only thing standing in her way is how to get soldiers and veterans to actually try her program. Lawson Phillips is a captain and pilot in the Marines. He recently lost a crew member after a helicopter crash in Afghanistan, and hasn't been able to fly since. He continues to have reoccurring nightmares, and his PTSD is out of control. To make matters even worse, he is on the verge of losing his career as a pilot.

Lawson is skeptical at first, until he finds out the teacher is Julie Chandler. The two met previously when his best friend, Micah Peterson, married Kat Chandler Julie's sister.

The first time that he met Julie didn't go well at all, but he doesn't let that stop him from trying again. The last thing either character is looking for is a relationship The author does a great job in letting their relationship progress over time, even though the chemistry is there from the start. As the story unfolds, they end up helping each other to heal and move forward. Overall, this is just a great feel-good romance. The storyline is interesting, and held my attention from beginning to end.

I was able to connect to both characters, which is always a good thing. The supporting characters were written well, and I am hoping the next book in the series is about Griff. I also liked the whole yoga idea to help treat PTSD, and found this to be a unique addition to the storyline. The author brings the story to life, and that makes you want to see that happy ending for the characters.

I would strongly recommend this book, as well as any other books in the series.
