Synopsis from Amazon
“To fulfill a sick boy’s wish, rodeo star Tucker Granger surprises little Owen in the hospital. But no one is more surprised than single mother Sierra Baker. She figures the carefree champion for a different kind of man. One who doesn’t spend hours talking “cowboy code” with a hospital-bound child. One who can’t have her dreaming of a second chance at love. Somehow, Tucker ropes her heart and fills it with hope. Hope that this country girl and her son can lasso the roaming bronc rider into their family forever.”
Gorgeous rodeo star Tucker Granger is the hero in this book. He’s a great guy, it just takes Sierra Baker until the end of the book to realize it. I read the back cover and thought this book would focus more on the health of Owen who is in the hospital at the beginning of the story, but it revolved around the budding romance between Tucker and Sierra.
I loved the characters in this book. I was pulling for Tucker throughout the whole thing because I could see his potential as a father and husband. It took Sierra about 200 pages to come to her senses as she tried to suppress her feelings for much of the book. The things Tucker did for Owen and Sierra made him the perfect guy. As much as Sierra pushed him away, he kept coming back. Realistic? Probably not. But you know romances.
I give this book five stars. There wasn’t much depth to the book, but it was a good story nonetheless. It was a Steeple Hill romance, a division of Harlequin. The books have no graphic sex scenes and often mention Bible passages and faith, but not an overpowering amount of religious talk.
Also, prepare for romance in some of the secondary characters as well. It really was a sweet story.
