Book Description:

Only one pair of boots—and the cowboy wearing them—can get Annie out of the mess she’s in.

Annie Wilkerson is Moose Creek’s premiere horse trainer and equine columnist for Montana Living. Money is tight as she tries to put her kid-sister through college and provide for her young nephew. When Annie’s column is cancelled, she’s given first shot at a new lovelorn column—and she can’t afford to turn it down. Only problem is . . . Annie’s never been in love.

Always resourceful, she reluctantly strikes a deal with the town’s smooth-talking ladies’ man Dylan Taylor: She’ll work with his ailing horse, Braveheart, if he’ll help her answer the reader letters.

Working closely with Dylan is harder than Annie imagined, and she quickly realizes she may have misjudged him. But her unwavering conviction that cowboys are nothing but trouble has kept her heart safe for years. And she can’t risk getting hurt now.

The more Annie tries to control things, the more they fall apart. Her feelings are spinning out of control, and her sister’s antics are making life increasingly more difficult. Annie knows she needs to turn the reins over to God, but surrender has never come easily.

When Dylan reveals his feelings for her, Annie doesn’t know what to trust—her head or her heart. The trouble with this cowboy is that he might just be exactly what she needs

My Thoughts:

When I picked this book I was really going for a light fun story. I had read the first book in this series a couple years ago and really enjoyed it. I had also read another of Denise’s books and really loved the way she wrote it and was impressed with her right from the get go. She did not disappoint me. It was a fun book with some drama thrown in.

It’s set in a small town where everybody pretty much knows everybody and their business. It’s a cowboy’s paradise, which Annie seems to have a problem with. That causes all kinds of drama for Annie.

Annie and Dylan have a pretty dysfunctional relationship. But, it’s only dysfunctional because of their own personal issues. One thinks they know the other because of a reputation but really doesn’t know them as well as they thought.  As their relationship grows they learn a lot from each other about themselves.  It’s a fun, witty and light book with plenty of romance to go around.

If you enjoy good clean romances then this is a great book for you. You can order this book by clicking on the image above.
