Where I got it: Kindle Freebie
Three-time world champion bull rider Rhett Allen has never been afraid to get his hands dirty. Hard work, sweat, and determination have gotten him where he is today—and that’s holed up in a hospital room, wondering how he let that damn bull buck him off. He’s also wondering why he thought it was a good idea to let his twin brother talk him into returning home to heal.
Rhett has a million reasons to come home to Heaven, Texas, and only one reason to stay away. That reason comes in the form of a sweet and feisty girl who stole his heart long before he ever thought to give it away. The only problem…that girl has turned into a stunning woman.
Monroe Gallagher is downright sexy with more curves than County Line Road. It’s been six years since he’s seen her, six years since he’s felt any form of peace, and six years since she gripped his heart in her delicate little hands and squeezed the life out of it. The longer he’s in Heaven, the more he starts to realize that the heart she took from him—the one she crushed into a million pieces—she also never gave back.
I haven’t read a book about a bull rider before, so this was kind of appealing to me. This is also a second chance romance, which is one of my favorite tropes. It added up to a good story.
Rhett was a tough guy. I think to be a bull rider, you have to be. He gets injured riding a bull and has to take a break, so he returns home to Heaven, Texas, where the girl who trampled his heart lives.
Monroe is an interesting character. I loved her because of her love of animals – she runs a no-kill shelter. She’s taking care of her father, who is ill, and puts the animals and her father ahead of herself. This part of story was a bit annoying. She’s a young woman not living her life, and nobody stepped up and told her “hey, live your life”. When Brett comes back into the picture, he finally does that, but I found it a little irritating that nobody else was able to do it before him.
Mo and Rhett had some great chemistry, and there are a slew of interesting characters that will get their own books (which I want, but realize I read one already).
If you love second chance, small town romances, this book is for you.
Overall, this was a good story and I would recommend.
