Wedding bells are the last thing on twenty-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 read any of the other books beforehand to enjoy this one!**

    4.5 stars It feels so good to be back at Circle B Ranch especially when there are sexy swoony cowboys like Riley roaming around. *dreamy sigh* This next generation of Bishops are really holding their own. I loved this book. Hitching the Cowboy was a super sweet read with a lots of heart, small town charm, family feels and even a little bit of drama. Kennedy Fox hooked me right in from the start. I hadn't read a good waking up married story in a while. So this was just what I needed. After a wild weekend full of bachelorette parties and 21st birthday celebrations, Riley and Zoey find themselves married to one another. (Which I find hilarious because the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. This scenario is something similar to what Riley's Dad, Alex did. Those Bishop men and Vegas don't mix.) Instead of immediately annulling the marriage they decide to stick it out. I liked seeing them get know each other - take that intense initial red hot chemistry and slowly build it to a lasting love. Gah! So swoony. My heart is so happy after reading this book. It's cute and quick and I just adored everyone. It never gets old seeing some of my old favorites. And now, I'm very intrigued by some new faces. I can't wait to see what's next.
  • A Bishop Cozy Read!

    By Bookloverstrio
    I’m never surprised when I crack open a Kennedy Fox Cowboy Romance and immediately feel like I’m back at home. Which is ironic considering I dislike most Cowboy romances. But Hitching the Cowboy just proves how easily KF writes the best cozy reads! Zoey and Riley were the bees knees! This book definitely doesn’t have as much angst like their duets do, but it is just as much a page turner as every other book I’ve read by them! I love the instant yet genuine attraction between these two characters. The family aspect is forever string in the series and I may just love that the most! If you’re looking for the perfect read to curl up with my a fire while drinking hot apple cider with your dog in the late hours of the evening, Hitching the Cowboy is it!
  • So excited for the next generation!

    By Samantha B. Sokol
    So excited for the next generation! Riley and Zoey meet in Vegas and on a dare end up getting married! While there is definite chemistry between them, the realization of what they did the next morning hits them but there’s no time to talk about it because Riley has to catch his flight. Weeks later, Riley is served with divorce papers, and while reluctant to do so he signs them, only to be surprised when Zoey shows up at his doorstep wanting to explore where things could go between them. Zoey has always been the black sheep of her family, and even though her decisions have consequences, she wants to see where things go between them before calling it quits, so she travels to the Bishop ranch and gives things a go. This couple has such a great relationship it was such an easy book to read because of it! But when Zoey’s secrets come to light, it’s something that risks breaking them apart. Per usual with these authors, I loved the book and thanks to the secondary characters I can’t wait to get their stories either! I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
  • Like father like son

    By Weinersnitzle
    This was quick, fun and steamy read. I absolutely love that KF is continuing the Bishop legacy. Let me tell you, Riley most assuredly lives up to the Bishop name. Honestly I was hooked from the beginning of this one, an accidental Vegas dare wedding was so, hysterically, Alex Bishop. I loved reading about a sort of rebel female lead like Zoey, too. Zoey is refreshing in the “doesn’t fit the mold” kind of way and the chemistry sizzles off the pages. Another stellar read, another wonderful trip to Circle B
  • Love, Love, Love

    I have never read a series about the second generation family members from a series I’ve read and loved. I’m so grateful for this and the chance to revisit the whole Bishop family as time has gone on. Circle B Ranch will always hold a special place in my heart and I’m so glad we get to revisit it as well as everyone who lives there. Riley Bishop is everything! He is so much like his father, Alex, and I loved every second of his story. When he takes his best friend, Diesel, to Las Vegas for his twenty-first birthday, Riley ends up married to Zoey, the woman he just met. Riley is the black sheep in her family, never feeling approved of or encouraged to do what makes her happy. When Zoey makes a surprise trip to the ranch to see if they have something real, not just a quick marriage in Vegas, neither of them are ready for how real and immediate their attraction and feelings are. I loved how they took things slowly to find out more about each other outside of their insane chemistry. Their journey to forever was not an easy one and there are some major bumps in the road and I couldn’t read their story fast enough. I am so excited to get my hands on Rowan and Diesel’s story! They have both already stolen my heart and I can’t wait to watch them navigate to a happily ever after! I hope we get a million more books set in this world with the Bishop family. I don’t want it to ever end! Grateful to have received a complimentary ARC copy to honestly review.
  • This book was sooooo great! Highly recommend

    By Ashel05
    Welllll. We've heard the saying what happens in Vegas... Sometimes what you find in Vegas May Be exactly what you were looking for your entire life. Riley, River & Alex's (Taming Him) son... love his heart. Zoey, feels invisible in her own skin with a family that is constantly disappointed. Across a crowded club Riley sees who he thinks is the most beautiful girl in the world! Fast forward 48-hours... they're married!! Good Lord that was fast!! I simply adored this story!!! I love them. Highly recommend!!
  • “Their eyes met and it was like time stood still.”

    By Romance213
    I love the Bishop Brothers series by Kennedy Fox, and I was so excited when I realized their new series centered around the children of the brothers. In “Hitching the Cowboy,” we are propelled into the future to the Circle B Ranch where we find Alex’s son Riley, hard at work, and as handsome as his father. Riley had planned a weekend in Las Vegas with his best friend and roommate, Diesel, and we all know what happens there. Nothing good, and certainly nothing you want to talk about when you get home. Riley and Zoey were instantly attracted to each when their eyes met across the busy nightclub. Riley never thought he would see her again and he knew that lady luck was on his side when their paths crossed the next morning in the hotel. Zoey was beautiful and funny and he desperately wanted to get to know her. Zoey loved her job as a hairdresser and was lucky to have followed her heart in pursuing the career that she wanted. She hadn’t lived up to her parents expectations and she was using this weekend to relax and just live in the moment. She thought that Riley was handsome and sexy and she knew in her heart they had met for a reason. When you meet the right person you just know it, because love doesn’t follow any rules and can happen in an instant. What happens when Zoey arrives at the ranch? Will she adapt to ranch life or miss all the comforts of home? Will Riley welcome Zoey with open arms, and can he convince her to stay and make a life with him on the ranch?
