Author: Kelly Elliott
Rating: 3 1/2 stars
Where I got it: Kindle Unlimited
Longing to forget the pain of his wife’s death, Brock Shaw has immersed himself in the one thing that lets him escape the guilt. Bull riding. But life on the road means leaving his young son at home with his parents. They want him to give up his career and be a father to his child, but Brock needs the adrenaline to get through each day…or so he thinks.
Lincoln Pratt needs a fresh start. As a top interior designer in Atlanta, she has everything she could ever want, but she’s always at her father’s mercy. Something’s missing, and Lincoln knows she’ll only find it somewhere far away—like the rolling pastures of Hamilton, Montana, where she meets the irresistibly mysterious Brock.
In Brock Shaw, Lincoln sees the part of her that’s missing. In Lincoln Pratt, Brock sees the part of himself he thought he’d lost. But the pain of his past binds him. Can he let himself love again?
I have read many Kelly Elliott books, so when I saw that she had a new series with a bull rider, I was intrigued. Unfortunately, I got a hero I really couldn’t connect with.
Brock is a bull rider. It’s his passion. He’s a single father to a 5 year old son named Blayze. He leaves his son in the care of his parents while he’s on the road doing what he loves, and his parents need a break.
During this time, Lincoln Pratt buys Brock’s old house, which happens to be on the Shaw’s property, so she becomes friendly with the family. She doesn’t meet Brock right away, and when she does, it doesn’t go over well.
Brock was kind of a big dick throughout this book. He was so hot and cold, it made my head spin. He had a lot of guilt about his wife’s death, which I understood, but at 27 years of age, I couldn’t understand why he was so closed off to the possibility of love.
Lincoln wasn’t really looking for love either. She was starting a new job, but she had an instant attraction to Brock, and she was smitten with Blayze right away. Blayze was adorable.
There was also a side plot with Lincoln’s best friend, Kaylee, and Brock’s brother Ty. I’m sure the next book will be all about them.
The worst part of the story, in my opinion, was the story of Brock and his wife, and his best friend Dirk, who was also a bull rider. The whole story line just made no sense, and I didn’t care for it.
Overall, this book was pretty good but not great.
