· “You can love someone without losing yourself in the process.” ·

*I got an ARC of this book through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.*

I must admit that when I requested an ARC of this book, I was mislead by the title and the cover and was actually expecting a more cowboy story and that . . . well, that didn’t quite happen. But my dissappointment was soon forgotten when I found myself turning the pages non-stop!

After Emma lost her husband to a war, the last thing she wants to do is

This 2nd book in the series does not disappoint, Emma is an emotionally scarred widow taking care of her grandfather with dementia & Marcus is an injured Army ranger struggling to heal and get back to his unit. The characters have depth which make them interesting with real life issues to overcome.

I've read both books in this series & now I'm hooked. Can't wait to read more by this author.

This series revolves around a ranch started by an Army veteran with the intend of matching service dogs with vets needing some type of emotional and/or physical support. Having loved book one, I knew this was a must read and it truly was.
This story belongs to Emma Stern and Marcus Talbott.
Emma, the sister of Adam, founder of the rescue ranch, is also a widow of a veteran that came back ill and addicted to pain killers. She has not recovered from her past and has no desire to get involved with

Big Chance Dog Rescue is having financial troubles. The vets pull out all stops to keep it running.

She first set eyes on him in the Big Chance Dairy Queen when she and her grandfather stopped in to get a bite to eat. There he was, a tall, well-built man who oozed sexuality and hotness. The guy with him didn't even register. Emma Collins Stern, emotionally depleted widow, was so discombobulated she couldn't even place her order. When she turned around to check on her grandfather who suffers from

Loved this book! The characters were interesting and had a depth that made them feel real and come alive on the pages. Emma is an emotionally scarred widow just trying to survive while surrounded by her husband's memories everywhere she turns. Marcus is an injured Army ranger who is struggling to heal and get back to his unit. Despite all the complications, they can't seem to stay apart.

I found myself deeply engrossed in this novel and hated to put it down. I loved the characters and their

I liked this story, specifically the premise of the plot - a rescue created to train dogs for veterans in need of canine assistance for whatever reason (and the reasons varied). Having worked with this population professionally, the plot was extremely important to me. Most of the details were accurate; a few were not, which impacted my overall rating. It also wasn't clear why the title referenced a cowboy when there weren't cowboys involved. Either way, Marcus and Emma were great characters with ...more

Big Chance Dog Rescue is a program to unite rescued shelter dogs with veterans who need them. Marcus hides the extent of his injuries, probably because he can’t accept it and the consequences it will bring. Emma, trains dogs and assists her brother Adam in running the program. She has her own baggage due to being a widow of a veteran that struggled after coming home. The characters are multifaceted and the concept is intriguing. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All ...more

Lucky Chance Cowboy is the second instalment in Teri Anne Stanley’s Big Chance Dog Rescue, and I thoroughly enjoyed the storyline and the plot. The author did an exceptional job of developing Marcus and Emma’s characters and outlining their individual backstories. But as always, the real winners in this story were the dogs! The references to the training and the funny moments were a breath of fresh air. I’m looking forward to the next in this series.

Emma kept making me mad. She was judging and thinking the worst of Marcus. On the other hand Marcus did nothing to try and change the opinion of what others saw in him. I'm not sure if it was pride or something else. These characters touched me in order to get these kinds of emotions out of me.
