3.5 stars generously rounded up to 4 stars. A nice romance that gets a little sappy once in awhile, about a woman taking care of her younger spoiled sister who is a barrel race rider at rodeos. The woman and her sister are staying at a local ranch between rodeos so the sister can hook up with a studly young bullrider. The older sister manages her sister's career and takes care of her horse on the road and catches the eye of a 25 year old cowboy at the ranch (the woman is 35).

The woman turns out

Literary Sins
"Good girl" vs. "Bratty bitch" trope
everyone loves good girls trope
slut-shaming
pitting women against each other (could have been majorly fixed by making Val character a man instead of a woman)
instalove
almost relatable but don't be goddamn dramatic because you never what it feels like to have both of your parents hating you and loving only their only son, don't even mention self-guilt
it makes zero sense for a parent to love another daughter more, as previously stated, Val shou

Very nice fast read book. I like the story and both characters were lovely. The only thing I have a problem with not only in this book but with any book is when the characters fall in love in matter of days. Don't get me wrong I do believe you can be attracted to someone instantly but not in love. For you to love someone it takes more than a week .
Otherwise I really like the story.

Interesting book. The heroine is both mute and has a prosthetic leg from an accident.. I dont think I have read a book where the only way the heroine can communicate is via signing. And then we have our tortured hero who 10 years younger and on the 5th year of his 10 year parole sentence for something he did when he was 16. I have never seen two people that needed each other more then these two lonely souls. There is also a pet woodchuck and lots of sexy cowboys.. The title of this book is dead ...more

She now knows married life can sizzle and romance can be 'erotic,' even in her own home.

Now her writing has taken on a spicier flavor, and while hubby's off at work, she lets her imagination soar…
