Summary

Wedding bells are the last thing on 22-two year old Riley Bishop’s mind, but that’s exactly what he hears after waking up in Vegas next to a woman he just met - his new wife.

He never saw her coming, but she might be worth the risk. 

Zoey Mitchell is high on life, free-spirited, and adventurous. However, learning she married a rowdy cowboy after a night of partying is not what she expected - even for her.

She’s risking it all, gambling with her heart.

Deciding to give their instant marriage a chance, Zoey moves from her big city life to a small-town Texas ranch. She has to know if their connection is based on more than just a wild one-night stand before announcing to her family that she got hitched.

One moment changes everything - for better or worse - and a secret could destroy them both.

This is a full-length stand-alone novel in the Circle B Ranch series and a spin-off from the Bishop Brothers series. You don’t need to have listened to any of the other books beforehand to enjoy this one!

Fabulous Story & Narration🎧 A Heartfelt Delight!

This book in an enjoyable delight and I loved everything about it, from Kennedy Fox’s wonderful writing style to the storylines and characters they created to the perfectly casted narration performed by the talented Lia Langola and Stephen Dexter. The story grabbed my attention right from the start and held it straight to end, it is the type of book once you start you do not want to put down. The characters are amazing, they are realistic and easy to connect with. I adored Riley Bishop, his friend Diesel was awesome too. The two head to Vegas for a Birthday celebration and when Riley dares Diesel to do a strip dance at a club he has to take him up it, neither one will back down from a dare because do not want to be a loser. Zoey Mitchell, is a hairdresser from Arizona is celebrating her sister’s bachelorette weekend. They are in a club to watch the amateur dances strip, the same place Riley and Diesel happened to be. Zoey captured Riley’s eye but they missed their chance to meet, that is until the next day when Diesel and Riley join the girls and party some more. Diesel gets his revenge by daring Riley to marry Zoey, so the two have a quickie Vegas wedding. The book flips back to before Vegas and takes you to after Vegas when Zoey shows up on Riley’s family farm in Texas. Riley was surprised to see but was also happy about it. The chemistry between the two is undeniable, they are great together and for each other but she holds back impertinent information about he life home in Arizona, how controlling her parents are and how unhappy they are with her career decision. I felt she should have stood up them from the start and was annoyed about that but sometimes it takes longer for others to speak up. I loved how everything plays out in this book, the story is beautifully plotted with plenty of drama, some great humor, lots of heartfelt and emotional moments and the start of a wonderful romance. Kennedy Fox, thank you for another fabulous story, I am looking forward to checking out more of your books and hot cowboys. I am also looking forward to Diesel’s story, I hope it comes to audio soon. 🎧📚🎧 And for the fabulous narration, Lia Langola and Stephen Dexter did an awesome job portraying the characters, giving each their own distinct voice. They truly grasped the characters’ personal, making each role their own and sounding just as I pictured them to sound. They also captured all of the characters emotions and projected them into their performance. They are entertaining storytellers and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another awesome listen.

Fun and seriously sweet story!!

Oh-Em-Gee!! Riley and Zoey are insanely perfect for each other. They wake up married to each other after a crazy night in Vegas! The saying might go... what happens in Vegas,  stays in Vegas but not for these two! Riley brings this big city girl home with him to the ranch in Texas! They both decide to give their snap decision nuptials a chance. What follows is exactly what we all expect from Kennedy Fox... amazing characters that seem warm and caring with some total fun sides to them. My heart was lost while Riley tries his hardest to get Zoey to love their possible life, his family and home, and hopefully him, as well. I could not have chosen better narrators myself and you know I'm a self-imposed audio snob... so not just any narrator will work with every book.  They need to fit with the characters and the personalities. Stephen Dexter and Lia Langola gave such personality and so much life to this story. This story is what I mean when I say narrators bring life to their characters.  You FEEL the humor, you FEEL that tepid love tight there on the threshold.  They were perfection!!

Zoey and Riley!

Riley enjoys working on the family ranch but he never thought that taking his buddy to Vegas to celebrate his birthday would forever change life as he knows it. Zoey is in Vegas to celebrate her sister’s bachelorette party but she never expected that after a few drinks and a dare that she would be the one that was returning home married. From the moment they meet the chemistry between them is electric but it is when they decide to see if what they have is destined to only be a fling or forever that the fun really begins! Filled with humor and heat there is no denying that this sweet and sexy cowboy has found his perfect match. I thought that the narrators did a great job of bringing out the humour and heat of the story.

Yeehaw!

I don't know where they get their ideas for stories, but Kennedy Fox has the right formula for their romances! I am in love with this fun, flirty, passionate book! Zoey and Riley meet in Vegas, and unexpectedly get married. Yes, they were both drunk, yes there was a dare, but now that the deed is done, there are decisions to make. When Zoey comes to the Circle B Ranch to see if the connection she felt with Riley is true, sparks fly and love is in the air. But is it enough for marriage? I fell in love with these characters from the first chapter. Zoey is ordinary and by that I mean she does not need to live in wealth. She sees people for who they are and loves with her whole heart. Riley is just so incredibly sweet, it is impossible not to fall for him. He has a fantastic family, a loyal best friend and a heart of gold. I not only loved these two, but the secondary characters add so much levity and fun, I can only hope we see more of them. This is the best kind of romance and look forward to book 2. Stephen Dexter and Lia Langola tell this story with an incredible narration. Dexter has a Texas twang to his voice, and he plays the perfect Riley. A little broody at times, but so lovable! Langola as Zoey gives us the emotional tugs and frustration she feels. I loved both of their voices, thought they complimented each other. I loved this team!

Who doesn't love a Cowboy?!

I 'read' this on audio and I've got to say that the team of Lia Longola and Stephen Dexter really brought this Texan cowboy's story to life. A story of insta love, a Vegas wedding and a ranch full of randy cowboys is a winning combination for me. I look forward to experiencing the other randy lotharios for myself in due course!

Loved it!

This book was fantastic to listen to. Lia and Stephen did an amazing job narrating this book. Riley and Zoe are so adorable. It's full of steam, a little drama, and a whole lot of love. I also adored Diesel- I can't wait to listen to his story!

4.5 Stars

Re-read on audio increased rating to 4.5 Stars I loved the Bishop Brother series and finding out there would be a spin off involving the kids always makes me happy. This was the first book in this series involving the first born child Riley who wakes up married after a trip to Vegas. Zoey decides not to sign the annulment papers and give their marriage a chance because their is definitely a connection between them, even if they initially only had that one weekend together. I love the writing of Kennedy Fox. The bishop brothers series is so incredibly cosy and funny, steamy and just the right amount of angst. I love small town/rancher romances, especially written by this incredible writing duo. This can be read as a standalone, but I definitely recommend at least reading Taming Him which features Riley's origin story? Stephen Dexter really brings Riley to life and I inhaled this story faster the second time than I did the first.

OMG I giggled more with the audio than ever!

I have to say, Lia Langola and Stephen Dexter NAILED it with the narration. I read the book when it first was released but hearing it on audio had me in complete fits of laughter, swooning at the right time and so much more. They elevated this book so much and gave it so much life! My feels on the story will follow but I can honestly say, this is one of the best audios I have listened to in a long time! This story is full of giggles and swoon moments that will keep you on your toes. I loved Riley and seeing how he has grown up. Then you have Zoey who was a wildcard in his life but their connection was so deep that you couldn’t help but root for them. Especially after waking up like they did in Vegas. But as they go through the paces, you find that these two are really meant for each other but there is always that monkey wrench tossed in. My heart broke for these two when that massive twist was thrown in. I understood what Zoey did. And I felt Riley’s reaction. Overall, this book is a brilliant addition to the Bishop family that it makes me excited to see more! I love the push and pull, the drama, and those sizzling moments! I loved everything about it!

So good

I loved Hitching the Cowboy! I am a huge of Kennedy Fox. These authors were perfect at bringing Zoe’s and Riley’s story to life. This book kept me up listening late into the night. If your looking a sweet romance with sexy cowboys, look no further. I will be reading or listening to the others in this series.

Getting Hitched on a dare

I loved this fun, spontaneous, hot, love at first sight, cowboy romance! The narrators did a wonderful job bringing the characters to life. Both Lia and Stephen were great to listen to. The Kennedy Fox duo one again wrote an enjoyable, fast paced storyline. Recommending this audible!

Now I have to go read the Bishop Bros. Series

So I’ve come to know and love the author duo behind the Kennedy Fox name throughout a bunch of duology books like the Roommate Duet series beginning with the Hunter & Lennon story which began in Baby Mine. I’ve followed along with this series and haven’t really had the chance to delve back into older books up till now. When Wildfire Marketing group offered to provide the audiobooks for review as they came out, I decided to sign up for this one. Now I need to read all of them, AND go back and read the Bishop Brothers series to see where it all got started! Of course we’ve got the sudden Vegas wedding at the beginning of this one, with Riley having to leave the next morning after with no extra time, and then we get a sudden letter of annulment sent to him with no explanation. So lots of stuff happening suddenly. Shortly thereafter, Zoey shows up and tells him she wants to see if there is anything actually there between them before she files the papers. So they do. And as you’d expect, things are great, it’s a perfect romance, kind of out of order, but still it all works out. Until the big surprise plot twist, that I didn’t see coming, even if I felt her sending the annulment papers with no warning was a shock at the time. Now, with the duets I’ve read by these authors, normally that big plot twist would be the end of book 1 and I’d know a whole second book was coming along with more twists and turns and emotions. However, this happened at almost the 80% mark in the story, so I knew we were going to get all of this taken care of before the book was over. And I liked the way it ended, it was perfect, we got a great epilogue, and now I’m also very excited to read on, or maybe listen on in this series. The narrators did a good job. I actually got nostalgic for my first college boyfriend when listening to this. He was a cowboy. I’m not really into that anymore, even as much as I enjoyed the story. But I decided maybe I just need a new cowboy love interested to get rid of those bad feelings and memories.

Sweet and Fun Romance!

This is the first book in the Circle B Ranch Series, the next generation of the Bishop Brothers Series. You can read this story as a standalone, but I guess it is better to read the entire Bishop Brothers Series in order, because the Bishop are amazing! I loved this sweet and fun story. Riley and Zoey are great character. Riley is handsome, hard working, caring, and loving. Riley is lovely, strong, and determined. I love the Bishop family! The secondary characters are great, and I would love to know more about them. The story has a great pace. Stephen Dexter and Lia Langola did an amazing job with the narration. I enjoyed it.

Loved the narrators

I love a good married in vegas story. Like I live for them. I know this is titled as an accidental marriage but this was like accidentally on purpose so idk if that really counts. Either way, we have a sweet cinnamon roll of a character in Riley and a fun and free-spirited heroine in Zoey. Hitching the Cowboy was just a fun and easy read. Well I mean there was this one part that wasn't so fun and easy but when Riley and Zoey were together like everything was right with the world you know. I actually listened to the audiobook of this and loved loved loved the narrators. They really brought the characters to life.

This fun story is audio perfection.

Instalove and Marriage of Convenience books aren't my favorite... but I've always enjoyed KF books, so I thought I would give this audio a try. The narration was perfection. They took on these characters as if they were Riley and Zoe and just nailed it. I really did like this story. Riley is a sweet rancher who was a breath of fresh air. He is loyal and devoted to his family. Zoe is carefree, fun and adventurous. I loved watching them explore the possibility of a real relationship. Riley's roommate and best friend Diesel is a wild, crazy daredevil sidekick and I am going to read his book too. There were some times where I found myself frustrated with Zoe but she redeemed herself. I'm not one that is into westerns, but I want to go visit that ranch because it sounds so amazing. :)

Hello Cowboys.....

I finally got around to listening/reading the first book in the Circle B Ranch Series and it was one that had me recalling some of Las Vegas adventures and the shenanigans you experience in sin city. This series starts of with Riley Bishop and Zoey Mitchell's story. A trip to Vegas and an drunken fun night lead to an accidental marriage thanks to the infamous Bishop antics that ensues. This listen/read is full of fun and surprises. Oh and be still my heart when it was revealed that they were willing to give their unexpected marriage a chance. That moment when they see each other again had my heart swooning for more. The challenge is whether two people who live two different lifestyles and class will be able to make it work living life on the ranch. Will it be enough for one to uproot their life into country living? Their chemistry is undeniably hot and intense; however, will it be enough? The narrations by Lia Langola and Stephen Dexter was a good combination when representing Riley and Zoey. They kept you constantly intrigued by their story and wanting more. This was a such a sweet and fun filled start into the series. Hello Cowboys...looking forward to more of your stories!

Awesome Audio Book

I read Hitching The Cowboy awhile ago so it was cool coming back to it so much later. I love this family so much and now the second generation of Bishop kids have got me so excited. Riley is definitely a chip of the old block. I love how there are so many similarities to Alex and River and Riley and Zoey’s story. Stephen Dexter was amazing as Riley and he is definitely going on my top narrator list! Lia Langola was great as Zoe as well. This audio book definitely made chores like laundry, dishes, and putting groceries away far more enjoyable!

Fun story!

Hitching the Cowboy by Kennedy Fox is book 1 in the Circle B Ranch series. I listened to the audio and really enjoyed the story, the narration and the characters. Riley is in Vegas with friends and they run into Zoey, who is there for a bachelorette party. The two hit it off and wake up married. Riley lives on a ranch and Zoe has always tried to please her parents. She is a hairstylist, but her parents wanted her to be a doctor. So now they want her to marry a doctor. Zoe takes off to visit Riley and falls in love with him, his life and his family. Riley falls head over heels for Zoe. They complement each other so well. When real life gets in the way, how will these two navigate the future? Will Zoe stay with Riley or return to life like expected? Hitching the Cowboy was narrated by Lia Langola and Stephen Dexter. I thought their overall performance was good, easy to listen to and portrayed the characters and story in a believable and fun way. I can’t wait for more in this series.
