God loves you so much. There's nothing you can do that would make Him leave you.~ page 126

When the opportunity to do just that comes up with an old flames younger sister, will she sacrifice her dream or will she put aside her hurt to help the little girl?

"He'd put the night out of his mind for almost twenty years. Refused to remember in case it broke him. Would it break him tonight?"

Jill Kemerer gives us book two in her Wyoming Cowboy series with Nash Bolton and Amy Deerson's story. Amy and Nash were an item ten years ago and she was sure he was about to propose. Then Nash just up and left town without a word. Not one word in ten years to explain his actions.

Amy has studied a long time to fulfill a desire of her heart: to mentor a child who nee

I loved this book! I have to admit that from a young age this city girl has been intrigued by rodeo even though I've only seen it in movies and read about it in books like this one. So when I saw the hero was a bull rider I was instantly interested. In fact, so much so that I neglected to pay attention to the beautiful child on the cover!

There was so much I loved about this book. The church's mentor program for kids, how the whole town supported Nash when he returned to town. And the rehab facil

Reunited with the Bull Rider is a Love Inspired Romance by Jill Kemerer. Jill did an excellent job writing this story. If you love, romance, cowboys, faith than this is the book for you. I loved reading Amy's and Nash's story. I received a complementary copy of this book. This review is my honest opinion. 4.5 stars!
Jill Lynn
My favorite of Jill's so far...
I've been reading Jill's books since the beginning, and this story just caught me. I love the little girl--she was a sweetheart. I love the theme of redemption. I love the characters. They were flawed and real and hopeful despite the past looming over them. Definitely five stars and two thumbs up to this happily-ever-after family. (I received an early copy of this book from the author.)
Jessica Patch
Kemerer's newest book in the Wyoming Cowboys series is like riding that bull for the full 8 seconds! It twisted and bucked my emotions in all the right places and gave me all the feels. These characters are three-dimensional and oh so relatable. Their struggles had me in knots. I cheered for their dreams and hopes. I cried for the pain. And goodness that sweet little girl stole my heart. I love that Love Inspired romances end in a HEA, and this one was magical! I can't wait to read what Kemerer ...more

A beautifully written, gripping novel from a superbly talented author! I love strong, inspirational messages from God, along with strong cowboys and perfectly chilled heroines. This book has those and more! Definitely worthy of a 4 Star shout out and high recommendations!

Amy Deerson loved Nash Bolton with every fiber of her teenage heart. Every dream she had centered around marrying him, until the day he walked out and didn't return. Thinking he must have died or something terrible had happened, she was shattered when she saw a news article stating that he'd won a bull riding competition miles away. Devastated, she tucked her heart away and made a life for herself in her hometown of Sweet Dreams, Wyoming.

I reviewed this for RT Bookreviews Magazine :

Reunited with the Bull Rider is part of the Wyoming Cowboys series. Numerous heart-wrenching scenes mix with heart-tugging moments to combine and create an emotional tale that will pull readers in. It is easy to feel drawn to Ruby and root for a happy ending for her, as well as for Amy and Nash.

Reunited with the Bull Rider has endearing characters and an emotional storyline which I absolutely loved and made this book a pleasure to read.

There was just enough friction between Amy and Nash to add realism to their story without either one of them to showing bitterness towards each other and I appreciated that given their past history. I liked that they were mature enough to try to put the past behind them to do what was best for Ruby. Speaking of Ruby, I adored her and her well-being becam

Can 2 people hurt by the past find family together?

What an incredibly sweet story of love, sacrifice, and second chances. I'm relatively new to Jill Kemerer's books, this is my second I think, but I am hooked on her trademark sweet romance tempered by flawed characters with difficult pasts. And I'm especially hooked on her Wyoming Cowboys series, of which Reunited With The Bull Rider is book 2.

When they were young Amy and Nash had something up until he split without a word. Now he's back with a child in tow and Amy seems like the mentor who can many help out this child. But its hard not to fall for eachother after what they have been through and they have to make sure to set things aside for the sake of the child.

I thought that this was a pretty good heart warming story. It was interesting getting to know of their relationship in the past, why things happen the way they did seeing the

Sweet Dreams, Wyoming is home to quilt shop owner and fabric designer Amy Deerson.

Retired bull rider Nash Bolton returns to his hometown with his four year old sister Ruby whom he cares for as a father.

Amy and Nash share a past of heartache and heartbreak after Nash left many years ago.

Sweet Ruby was my favorite character. The author did an exceptional job of bringing to life a little girl who suffered abuse and deals with many trust issues. Ruby will just tug at your heart strings!

Reunited with the Bull Rider is book two in author Jill Kemerer’s Wyoming Cowboys series. Although part of a series, Reunited with the Bull Rider can easily be read as a stand alone novel.

This book really tugs on the heartstrings and that tug comes in the form of a four year old little girl, Ruby, who has been traumatized by her painful past. It is up to her much older brother and now guardian, Nash, and Amy, a woman from Nash’s past to help Ruby heal from her painful wounds. This is a story fi

I really wanted to not like Nash for poor Amy's sake. He left her ten years prior without so much as a goodbye. He broke her heart and ruined her plans for a husband and a family and now he is back. Nash and Amy agree to tolerate each others' presence for the sake of Nash's little sister, Ruby. Ruby had been deeply scarred emotionally by her mother by her (and Nash's) mother. Amy is trying her best to mentor her so she can learn to trust again, as well as have a feminine influence in her life. M ...more

This wonderful story really touched my heart!

When Amy Deerson shows up at her church to meet the young child she's been asked to mentor, she has no idea she's about to come face-to-face with Nash Bolton, the man who broke her heart! But this story is so much more than just two young people trying to cope with the present, without letting the past destroy what they're working together to accomplish. Nash's young sister desperately needs Amy's help -- and friendship -- if she's to get beyond her o

This story of forgiveness and redemption is a delight. Nash and Amy thought they’d spend the rest of their lives together. Nash disappeared without a word. Amy has spent years dealing with the hurt until the Hurt arrives back in town with a traumatized little girl, Ruby, who Amy has been asked to mentor. If she mentors Ruby, Nash will also be in the picture. Can Amy put her feelings for Nash aside to help Ruby?

Author Jill Kemerer brings the well-developed characters to life through the real-life
So I was tempted to not admit to reading this, but I decided to not be a coward/snob, plus hey—it’s one more book toward my reading challenge and it helps counter balance those super long history books! I read a LOT of genres, and it’s not like this is a bodice ripper or something. I picked it up for a quarter at the library book sale and it was harmless and I was in the mood for a bubble gum read. It was mildly entertaining. It was definitely one of those plots based mainly on poor communicatio ...more

Amy's determination has helped her become a thriving businesswoman in charming Sweet Dreams, Wyoming despite the unexpected detour of her dreams. She has pulled herself up by the bootstraps and moved on (or so she tells herself).

Nash is such a sweet underdog hero. He's willing to move heaven and earth to protect a couple of special gals no matter how much it costs his big 'ol broken heart. Nash's closest friends and stand-in mother figure form an endearing ra

What a wonderful story! I like tension and this story had it. As I read, it was like peeling the layers of an onion. The further you got the more you began to understand where the character of Nash was coming from. Its a quick story (to me) so some things get sped up but it did not annoy me like some other stories do when it becomes unrealistic. This will definitely be one to read when it releases June 1st. Jill has been consistently good and I expect it will continue to be that way in her futur ...more

Jill Kemerer pens a thoughtful and sweet story in Reunited with the Bull Rider. At first read, there seems to be little that could keep Nash and Amy apart for so long. Once reunited, even the characters have to remind themselves why they shouldn’t immediately rekindle their relationship. But the hurt they’ve experienced is deeper than either one realizes.

Ruby is a great catalyst to bring them together, adorable, but raising the stakes. Ruby NEEDS stability, which made me root for a happily ever

Jill Kemerer writes a great romance, but what she writes even better is life. When Amy and Nash are faced with the chance to resolve their past and build their future, it becomes clear that it will be complicated. But little Ruby is worth the struggle, worth the journey and, in the end, worth the commitment. Kemerer weaves faith and forgiveness into their story with warmth and honesty. I found myself filled with a range of emotions as I became invested in this wonderful story.

I love Kemerer’s story and this was a Love Inspired Heartwarming Romance that really captured my heart. The story is on forgiveness, heartbroken, and trust. The story was well written and the characters were so real like. You will need to bring your kleenex for this one. This is Amy and Nash’s story. Can they forget the past and forgive? Little Ruby captured my heart right away.
