Jessie Knadler, transplanted from Montana, is living a less than satisfying life in the Big Apple. She’s just been laid off from her position as a magazine editor; she recently learned that her lover has a proclivity for (really) young girls; and she’s certain that her late nights spent drinking into the wee hours will not prolong her life. When she’s offered a freelance opportunity to return to Montana to write a story on a popular rodeo event, Jessie figures she’s got nothing better to do…plus there’s always the nagging fact of needing cash. In Rurally Screwed: My Life Off the Grid with the Cowboy I Love, Jessie’s trip back West will dramatically change her life. Jessie has been sent to cover is the Bucking Horse Sale where those brave (or stupid) enough are encouraged to mount and ride unbroken bulls and horses. She hopes to capture the epitome of the gritty Montana man in words and pictures. While there are plenty of characters who take the challenge, one person in particular catches her attention. He’s a tall blonde with a chiseled face and a timeless presence. She briefly interviews him for the article and they part with a half-promise to meet up at the evening street dance. And meet up they do—just as Jessie has almost given up hope of seeing her cowboy again. When Jake confesses that he had spent the entire night searching for her, Jessie realizes she’s found a man far different from those she’s encountered in New York City. His openness, honesty, and wholesomeness are such an aphrodisiac that she finds herself being—to use the cliché—swept off her feet. Apparently, the attraction is mutual. The two embark on a long-distance romance, but before they can make any definite future plans, Jake is deployed to Iraq. For the next year and a half, they have only letters to keep their connection strong. Can their love survive an eighteen-month separation? And, if so, can Jessie realistically make the transition from city slicker to country girl? To find out, pick up a copy of Rurally Screwed!

An enjoyable read. Intuitive on many levels.

Did you read "NOTHING TO GOOD FOR A COWBOY" or watch the CBC series? This is similar although a more adult read. The first several chapters are like "Sex In the City" as Jessie is a New York magazine writer with a wild lifestyle. I am giving nothing away about her back story/history. Hang in as this book becomes very funny and one I could not put down. Her adventures and feelings about about adapting to rural life are spot on.
