Rodeo cowboy Teagan has inherited his father's ranch, and it's in a bad way. He needs to work the rodeo circuit hard to make enough money to pay the bills, so he starts looking for a rodeo partner.

Team roper Cash is just the ticket. He's not the friendliest sort, but he has a good seat and a better roping arm, so Teagan takes Cash on, and as they get to know each other, th

I picked up this book because it was listed on a "cowboy" theme of books and the premise seemed interesting. I have a soft spot for 'players' that turn around and become loyal.

It was...ah...okay.

I'll start with the likes:

* The characters were really interesting some/most of the time. I enjoyed how the main character had to struggle with money and his emotions.

* The horse bits all seemed on the up-and-up. This was a horse heavy book but it never poked me the wrong way. This is a great relief.

I mostly agree with the parts of Alex's review about Cash, and I've no one to blame - I somehow overlooked mentions of sleeping around in the summary and that thing usually pisses me off and here was no exception. Break up in the middle I don't like too and after all that the ending didn't satisfy me. I'd like at least one more chapter or the epilogue to see MCs happy together and to enjoy their HEA.

I want my money back! This was gross and traumatic for me. They were both immoral creeps who should have stayed away from each other. TOXIC relationship.

I have loved the other Tory Temple books I have read. I liked this one, but I didn't love it.

Teagan's father left him in debt when he passed away. He is trying to pull himself up. When his heeler gets hurt before the rodeo season starts, he goes looking for a new one. He finds Cash. A cowboy with a bad attitude.

They start on the rodeo tour, and start sleeping together. But what happens when one wants more than the other?

So what I liked first. The Characters had a good chemistry and were hot t

Perfect if you like cheating, abusive , promiscuous perverted pigs of heroes! HATED IT!!!
~ Lei ~ Reading Is An Adventure ~

Rancher Teagan needs to make money so that he can keep the ranch he inherited from going under so he's been on the rodeo tour and when his long-time heeler is injured, he needs to find someone quick. Cash isn't the nicest sort but he's a pretty good heeler and once they go on the road, things heat up.

Unfortunately, Teagan finds out he's not the only one in Cash's saddle and takes it badly [no relationship had been defined, so I don't consider it infidelity] and Cash cuts it off completely.

I liked the MC's but more background would have been nice. I don't think Cash gave Teagan a chance to explain why he kept information hidden. The ending was abrupt and didn't bring enough closure. I do like cowboy stories and most of this book was good.

A little disappoint with the ending but the charisma and relationship between characters were something enjoying.

Solid, enjoyable read. No heavy angst or overly sweet fluff.

I live in southern California, the land of no seasons. (Is wind a season?) I live with three dogs, two cats, and some tortoises. I'm married to a firefighter, which is great in the sense that some nights I get the TV all to myself, but not so great in the sense that some nights I have to figure out what to do when the washer starts leaking.
