Who’s not a sucker for cowboy in chaps? This isn’t an earth shattering book by any means but it was quite enjoyable. Piper took 2 characters that were arch enemies and turned them into lovers. Pretty simple and straight forward so it was up the to author to make this book mean something to me and she did a pretty good job of it.
The characters Matt and Lance are both sex on legs, it is their sexiness that all of the heat in the book emanates from. Piper did an exceptional job of playing the characters against the other that brought a sense of reality to the book. I like it when the characters act and feel, REAL. One of the downsides to that is the author put words into their actions that felt contrived. When you have a couple of characters like Matt and Lance who are all Testosterone, words like squirting, splooge and discharge don’t work. Matt and Lance “came”, much better!
I’m going to say that this is an HFN, there isn’t a clear designation on whether they are going to keep their relationship a secret or come out as a couple.
The story is very interesting and I really enjoyed it. The characters were just my type so that added to the enjoyment and as I stated earlier the story felt real and not a fantasy.
It’s Rodeo Roundup time in Houston. Undefeated bull riding champion, Matt Stevens, runs into longtime nemesis, Lance Loskey. Matt is intense, his focus and drive sustain him, but seeing Lance with his carefree attitude rages a plethora of feelings to the surface. This mellow cowboy is in position for more than just the championship after a freak accident paves Lance’s way. This is an opportunity for bull riding opponents to embrace their destiny. Will they succumb to fate, or will stubborn pride end the 8 second ride in tragedy?
