Another winning series for Tule Publishing.

A woman who thinks the crush she's had since teen years is the man for her...she surprises him on the Bull Riding Tour only to discover... she wasn't his only woman. Tanner, another top rider sees the meltdown and from there is part protector/ part new friend.

These two are thrown together and from the beginning... it all works terrifically well.
She is a strong woman, no whining and he is a man

Holy crap! How did I miss a new Sarah Mayberry?!? For three whole months? I am a crappy fan.

Whatever, this story absolutely rocked. Tanner is made of win and Evie is just such a sweetheart. I fell for both pretty much immediately and enjoyed every moment of them getting to know one another. I could gush for thousands of more words, but I'll spare you. Suffice to say that I loved it and would eagerly give away copies on street corners because the world needs more happiness in it.

Tule Publishing has introduced a new series the American Extreme Bull Riders Tour and I am already in love with the series.

Strong, sexy down to earth hard working bull rider with a heart of gold, working his way to the top of this years ranks. Tanners heart of gold is about to come out when he finds himself confronted with Evie; Evie has come all the way from Australia to Tulsa. To surprise her boyfriend and ...more

ARC received for review

Tanner is a bull rider and intent on getting his second buckle, but fate and a bull named Hurricane Habit have other plans. Evie has arrived from Australia to cement her relationship with another bull rider, Troy. Tanner saves her from embarrassment, and she helps Tanner when he gets hurt. Lots of hot sex, drama, and some angst along the way to true love.
I liked this more than I expected given subject! I am really not a fan of the whole ranching aesthetic that Tule has cultivated for themselves, but Sarah Mayberry is a special writer and this was good.

This was an easy, enjoyable read, with likeable characters but it certainly wont be added to my list of Sarah Mayberry favourites, and I dont think Ill re-read it. Australian Evie in the US for 2 weeks when she meets rodeo star Tanner. Both start off thinking theirs is only a brief fling. Evie is a young, optimistic and slightly naïve 25 year old who has almost finished her vetinary studies. I really liked Tanner- he is a really decent, humble character. I also found the world of the rodeo ...more

Most of the time, "cookie-cutter" romances are bad. But there are fun shapes too and this book, while not doing anything new, is a cowboy-shaped cookie (yeehaw!). I enjoyed it. And I liked the details about bull-riding.

Ive read just about all of Ms. Mayberrys books which is a sign of how much I enjoy he writing but it seemed a while since I had read one of her books. So when I saw Tanner on Kindle, I snatched it right up. Did you ever see the movie The Longest Ride starring Scott Eastwood great movie by the way? If you have this book kind of has that kind of feel to it.

Tanner Harding is a bull rider on tour. Hes doing pretty where his is doing very well for himself.. He runs into Evie Forrester, a young

I really enjoyed reading the American Extreme Bull Riders series debut. I'm intrigued by the concept of each book being authored by someone different. I think it is going to be so much fun to read about all the different bull riders and it will guarantee they each have a unique voice.

The debut is a strong one. Tanner is an all around good guy who seems to almost always do the right thing. If you love the good guy you will want to pick this up. If you like a bad boy then Tanner might be a little
I'm enjoying this series so much that I went back to get the earlier books and this was the first.

Evie Forrester thought all her dreams had come true when her brother's best friend Troy Jensen finally noticed her at a family wedding and the two of them spent a spectacular night together. Since then the two of them have kept up a sporadic relationship via emails and texts while Evie studies veterinary science in Australia and Troy is a bull-rider on the American Extreme Bull Riders (AEBR)

Sarah Mayberry has this ability to write simply plotted stories and turns them into fantastic romances with deeply layered characters. Tanner is no exception and it's also because of her very likable, real and honest female lead, Evie. The developing relationship between Evie and Tanner is lightning fast but the way it is written a reader would not be hard pressed to think that this happens in real life. The plot device used to keep them in contact was dealt with very quickly, no added drama but ...more

That's it. That's the review. See my live-Tweet reaction thread if you want more garbled thoughts: here

TANNER is the first book in a new alternate-writers series from Tule Publishing, called American Extreme Bull Riders Tour and this first instalment is written by Australian romance author (and one of my fave-of-faves!) Sarah Mayberry.

Now, cowboys are not really my thing. Every romance reader has their trope-of-choice; and cowboys just arent mine. My bestie is all about the ice-hockey players, while Im more of a Scotsman in a kilt kinda gal but the whole Western Romance/Cowboys/Bullriders

As I'm sure I've mentioned many times before, I would read anything Sarah Mayberry writes (including the phonebook!) She has an innate way of bringing her characters to life and giving them real-life issues to overcome that leaves me either in need of a box of tissues, or a fan!

I loved the tough-as-nails Tanner with a heart of gold. When he finds down-on-her luck Evie holed up in a flee-bitten hotel after getting dumped by the love of her life, he makes it his mission to ensure she is safe until

I'VE MISSED YOU SARAH! It's been too long.

So one of my all-time favorite authors is at it again (seriously, if you haven't read Anticipation, GO READ IT RIGHT NOW and thank me later), with the first in a series she's collaborating with a bunch of different authors to write. Tanner is her entry.

So nice, loyal Evie flies to meet up with Troy, the childhood friend/bull-riding guy of her dreams that she (after a one-night stand) believes is just as into their relationship as she is. And here is the
I feel like this book is a bit short, but I like how the character developments and relationship buildups are not sacrificed because of it. The chemistry and connection between Tanner and Evie are present and boy are they strong.

Would 10/10 move across the globe for Tanner/Evie tbh.

It must be said that Sarah Mayberry is one of Australia's most talented writers. Yes, she's known for her 'Neighbours' writing talent but it's her romance fiction that I think most adequately displays her talent. That said, Tanner is a brilliant read. End of sentence. It. Just. Was.

Tanner is exactly the man that romance readers dream of and Evie is a wonderful character who is as strong as she is vulnerable, a delightful yet oft difficult combination for writers to master (but Mayberry does
Mayberry always delivers sweet, lovely contemporary romances. Tanner was no exception.

Tanner was such a sweetheart. I really liked how sweet he was to Evie, and what an all-around stand-up guy he was. He did what needed to be done and didn't complain about it. It was great how he rescued her, but then needed to be rescued in return. It made for a well balanced romance.

Evie was great, too. She was practical and down-to-earth. I really liked that she took responsibility for her part in the Troy

Tanner by Sarah Mayberry
American Extreme Bull Riders Tour #1

Going into the story, if you read the blurb, you know that Evie will not get the man of her dreams and that Tanner will rescue her and that they will more than likely find a HEA BUT the story is so much more than just that. Both Evie and Tanner are wonderful characters with personalities that leapt off the page. Their vigor and vitality, charm and character, humor and humanity, intelligence and so much more made them well rounded

Tanner by Sarah Mayberry is the first in the American Extreme Bull Riders Tour series, a multi-authored set of romances that looks at the life of rodeo cowboys who participate in this extreme sport and the women who lasso them in. While the theme of the series isnt something that normally peaks my interest, I have very much enjoyed all the books Ive read by this talented author in the past. I trust her to take a new-to-me topic and weave it into an entertaining and sexy romance and she has ...more

My Review:

Tanner Harding has a plan and so far, everything is going according to plan. Hes a successful bull rider and ranch owner who fully intends to retire with at least one more million-dollar season behind him. As the saying goes, we plan and God laughs.

Evie Forrester has plans of her own and not anywhere in those plans did she anticipate her boyfriend screwing another woman and

In retrospect traveling half way around the world to surprise a man youve loved for most of your life but youre not so sure he feels the same might not have been the best idea Evie ever had. But she had to know. Even if that doubt was well hidden, it was still there. Troy would be happy to see her, of course he would and hed erase all these doubts of hers. Well, things didnt work out quite the way Evie had hoped, not with a buckle bunny attached to the man she

4 stars -- I received a free copy through NetGalley in exchange for an honest and unbiased review/opinion.

I have made it no secret that I am a huge Sarah Mayberry fan. Back when I was reading Harlequins like they were going out of style, I found her to be a refreshing voice full of humour and sass, and always unique characters and situations. And I've read a few of her books outside of the Harlequins (she's had a few with Tule publishing), and she always

The only reason i'm not giving this a 5 stars, is 'cos it got too sweet toward the end and the characters did manage to annoy me with their lack of talking.

Why i would give this a 5 stars even thus it's a romantic novel and therefore junkfood for the brain, is 'cos i totally love Sarah Mayberry's works! i love her writing style like a LOT and i know for sure that i'll enjoy her romantic novels.

This one was not a disappointment at all! i actually had fun reading it, as it had plenty of funny
