Tanna Barker is a world champion barrel racer. But her personal life has been less of a success, and she’s feeling adrift. After her mother’s unexpected death, her father has remarried, and sold the Texas ranch she called home. Now a rodeo injury has left the restless spitfire holed up in Muddy Gap, unsure what her next move should be.
Until she meets her match in a wild, wild cowboy
Veterinarian August Fletcher has always put his job first. He’s never found a woman who could handle his on-the-road lifestyle. But when sassy, sexy Tanna blows into town, he finally finds the woman of his fantasies. And there’s something between them, but she claims she’s been burned by love ’em and leave ’em road dogs before. How can Fletch prove that he’s in it for the long haul, and that their sizzling relationship is better than winning any rodeo medal? It’ll take some sweet persuasion to convince Tanna that Muddy Gap is where she belongs.
Tanna Barker is pretty awesome, she made me laugh loudly from the moment I met her in this book. Her attitude and personality are amazing, especially considering how much she’s hurting and struggling with recovering from her injury.
August “Fletch” Fletcher is blown away by Tanna from the moment he meets her and I adored that about him. He dishes right back to her and is so caring and giving with his community, and I can’t help but love someone who is so kind to animals and skittish women.
When these two get together it’s explosive and I enjoyed watching these two dance around each other and try and make it work as more than just a fling. There were a few moments of misunderstandings between them where I wanted to shake them both and say talk to each other. That’s something I love about Ms. James’ writing, she not only brings the heat she brings the emotions that have me so drawn into the story that I let the rest of my life fall away and just become so interested in the journey.
Overall this is a delicious story between a cowgirl and a cowboy and a explosively hot ride that makes me want to run off to Wyoming to find my own cowboy.
