TRUST A COWBOY
Pete and Mary Jo are tiptoeing around each other. These friends shared a night of passion, which Mary Jo assumed meant more than it did to Pete. Now Pete knows that he wants to be with Mary Jo, but she won't let herself get hurt again. Judy Christenberry's Trust a Cowboy (2) is a disappointment. Pete consistently treats Mary Jo as if she doesn't know her own mind. He doesn't stick to their agreement to try to be friends, continually calls her by pet names after she asks him not to and touches her when she tells him not to. It's difficult to believe in a romance when one partner is disrespected so completely by the other.
