Recommends it for: Fans of cowboy romance and enemies to lovers romance
Unexpectedly good (considering the heroine--sports physical therapist Tara Jenkins (22), was rather unlikable and immature in the previous book--Two Times as Hot, and the hero of this book-- bullrider Jace Mills (30) was just so-so and kind of weak in the previous book). But in this book, wow, Cat Johnson really redeemed them. Tara grew up, became less annoying and rather likable, and Jace grew a backbone and was rather sexy and commanding in this book.

Jace and Tara have annoyed one another for quite some time. Jace thinks his best friend's little sister is beyond annoying with her foul mouth and flippant attitude and Tara thinks Jace is overbearing and obnoxious and then they end up being traveling companions on the Central States Rodeo Circuit and the gloves are off... or are they on?

When the car that Tara purchases to help her complete her sports medicine internship decides to die, Tara is left at the mercy of Jace Mills who needs to get ou

From Joseph's fried bologna sandwiches, to following the rodeo circuit, to a crazy ex-girlfriend, to sweet, hot lovin' Cat Johnson's third entry in her Oklahoma Nights series, Three Weeks With a Bull Rider has it all.

I can't say that I "fell in love at first sight" with the two main characters, Jace Mills and Tara Jenkins. Both were secondary characters in Cat's previous book in the series, Two Times As Hot. Neither came across in that book as particularly lovable characters. Jace was annoying b

Three Weeks with a Bull Rider is the 3rd book of the Oklahoma Nights series by Cat Johnson. This series has captured me from the very first book. To be honest, I had my reservations about reading Tara's story. In the past books she struck me as a spoiled brat. I'm glad I gave this book a chance.

Tara Jenkins has always had a huge crush on her brother's best friend. Her crush is now married and has a baby on the way. Running from a broken heart she has decided the best wa

4.5 stars.

Three Weeks with a Bull Rider, the final novel in the Oklahoma Nights trilogy, is refreshingly unique, deliciously sensuous and full of surprises. In this outing, Cat Johnson effortlessly accomplishes what has to be one of THE most difficult things an author must do: transform a previously unlikable character into one that readers will not only love but one that they will root for 110 percent. Thankfully, in Ms. Johnson's talented and capable hands, Tara Jenkins becomes a heroine that

In the third book in her Oklahoma nights series…Cat Johnson delivers a book with a story that really surprised me. I didn’t know how the story was going to end so I was truly surprised to find out how much I really enjoyed it (and how much I came to like Tara).
Three Weeks With A Bull Rider focus on Jace Mills and Tara Jenkins. Two people that have been “friends” for the sake of Tara’s brother Tucker, who is also best friends with Jace. They have always traded insults with each other so imagine
Originally Reviewed For: Bodice Rippers, Femme Fatales and Fantasy

In Book Three of Cat Johnson's Oklahoma Nights Series, we find an unlikely couple. Unlikely especially since in book two Two Times as Hot (see review HERE) they were unlikable. And yet, these two individuals had some growing up to do, had some realizations to meet and just had to get away from their regular world. In doing this they discovered that there was much more to both of them than either had imagined.

I love cowboy romances whether they're contemporary or historical. I love the rodeo cowboy storyline and find it very interesting since I don't know the first thing about it. The risks they take with their bodies, their relationships and their families. That being said, I was super excited to read this book.

Jace Mills is a veteran rodeo cowboy on a somewhat of a winning streak. He's fairly successful because of his winnings and his normal job of landscaping. He has been in an on-again off-again
Jace is having big problems with his ex-girlfriend and decides to get out of town for a while and follow on the rodeo circuit. Tara is excited for her internship with the rodeo but when the car she just purchased breaks down, she wonders how she’ll be able to complete it.

Jace offers Tara a ride since they’ll be traveling the same circuit. Tara is beyond thrilled and despite her and Jace’s hate/hate relationship, she is thankful she can start her internship. However, the idea doesn’t sound so goo

Tara can’t believe her luck. She emptied her savings to buy a car so she could do an internship and finish her sports medicine degree and now she needs a new engine. How is she going to spend three weeks traveling the rodeo circuit and complete her internship? Jace can not take being in the same town as his ex-girlfriend any longer, one minute she wants him around the next she is throwing a lamp at him. To avoid her Jace suggests Tara and he be

I really have to work more Cat Johnson books onto my to-read pile. With Three Weeks with a Bull Rider she managed to take two characters I cared very little about from the two previous Oklahoma Nights books and give them a romance that I wanted to work out for them.
Let’s be honest here I strongly disliked the childish Tara from Two Times as Hot. It didn’t take me too long to really start enjoying her character this go round though. She’s young and trying to do things on her own, in her own way

I have been a fan of this series since the first books came out last year. In fact I wanted to hop a plane to Oklahoma and come and see all these sexy cowboys for myself, because they way Cat Johnson describes!!!

So this is the story of Jace and Tara. Jace is Tuck's best friend and Tara is Tuck's baby sister. Jace has been in a difficult relationship for the past couple of years with a girl who is rather unstable. Tara has been in love with Logan (Tuck's oth

Oh how I love this series. Cat Johnson did a great job with Jace and Tara's story. I loved the witty banter between them and the chemistry is off the charts.
These two do not automatically fall into the nearest bed like the couples from the previous books in the series did. They built up to it and formed a friendship of sorts first.
Although Tara was my least favorite character from Two Times as Hot, I really enjo

A great read, loved every minute of it.
Jace and Tara don't get along, they never have but when her car gives out he offers to give her a ride and be her travel buddy so she can finish her sports medicine internship as he has to get out of town and on the road away from a broken relationship that won't go away, and do some bull riding for a while.

I loved this book. It's the story of Tara, Tucks sister, who has always had a crush on Logan, Tucks brother-in-law. Logan married Tuckers wife Becca's sister Emma. Tara didn't take the news well.
Jace who use to bull ride with Tucker and are best friends, offered to take Tara with him for the three weeks while she finishes her internship with the rodeo doctor. Jace needed to get away from his psycho girl Jacqueline who for years they had a on again off again relationship.

one of the worst books I've ever read. completely unlikable heroine who won't take no for an answer and practically rapes the hero. Then there's anal sex all over the place. I couldn't even finish it because I couldn't skim enough to get clear of it. They were discussing it even when they weren't doing it. ugh. I need brain bleach.

How could the author take a nice charming romance series and turn it into this? Now I'm afraid to ever again read one of her books. going on the black list.

I had some serious issues with this book.

Tara acts like a spoiled bratty child more often than not. At the beginning of the book, she's upset & angry with her brother Tucker's friend Logan because he married Emma in Two Times as Hot. She's had a crush on him forever & right before his wedding, tells him she loves him & begs him not to marry Emma. He tells her he's never loved her that way & marries Emma anyway. Instead of growing up & realizing that:

Three Weeks with a Bull Rider was not what I expected. It was better. Ms. Johnson bleeds reality and fiction together for a wonderful story. Jace and Tara are enemies turned lovers but, more than that they healed each other in the process. What was once physical therapy to help them get over their respective heartbreaks turned into a deeper, and more seated relationship than either of them was ready for. This book was refreshing in so many ways- it was a nice break from the ever present angst in ...more

I thought that Cat Johnson’s THREE WEEKS WITH A BULL RIDER was a good addition to her Oklahoma Nights series, but I also have to admit that didn’t connect with these two characters quite like I had with the previous two books. Tara and Jace consider themselves to be more enemies than friends, so they don’t feel any attraction to one another at first. Instead the story is more focused on how these two try to overcome their pasts, and how they discover that with help moving on might not be so hard ...more

This book is my now my favorite by this author, as it was very entertaining. Cat Johnson gave her own unique spin on the familiar plot- Falling for your best friend’s little sister.
Though, Tara and Tace knew each other for years, they were certainly not friends and had tolerated each other only because of Tuck. Tuck is Tara’s big brother and Tace’s best friend. (Tuck is the hero from Book 1). Even though, Tace and Tara had nothing in common, they did find themselves in a similar position, as the

If you have been reading the Oklahoma Nights series by Cat Johnson then you are probably familiar with Jace Mills and Tara Jenkins. Both have been seen in previous books so some of their background is known. If not i think you can still figure out what's been going on with them enough in past books to follow along. Jace has a crazy ex girlfriend he can't seem to stay away from. She's a ex that still controls him in a lot of ways. He's finally sick of it and decides to go on the rodeo circuit for
Jace and Tara had a hate hate type of relationship for as long as they knew each other... but I'm thinking the hate they had for each other couldn't have been that strong cause no matter how important the situation is if you hate someone you HATE them... which is why when Tara was forced to spend 3 weeks with Jace to finish her Internship for school following the Rodeo it wasn't surprised that they're feelings for each other changed.

This story could have been better then it was... I think a lot
