Hope Trahan has everything she wants and everyone she needs…except her sister and someone who really is deserving of her. Who knew two separate events would turn everything completely upside down? When her best friend drags her down to the rodeo to help clear her head the last thing she expects is to meet a sexy, sweet talking cowboy. That’s not what she came for but fate had other things in mind.
Wesley Tyler owns two national titles and is riding his way to the next. The day he meets Hope, he knows there’s no going back. He soon learns Hope carries ghosts with her she can’t quite shake. She holds things she wishes she could let go of. Wesley just may hold the key to helping her overcome it all. Can he win her over and help mend her broken walls or will her past hold her down?
This was a very cute story with just enough drama to keep it interesting.. I have to say I'm not a big cowboy romance reader but this book kept my attention and I wanted to know what was happening next with Hope and Wesley.
Hope is dealing with the loss of her sister kaylee two years before, she engaged to be married in just 2 months but so,etching seems off. What's off was her fiancé Brad was cheating on her and she walked right in on it. To help her get over it and put Brad in the past her best friend Amber takes her to the rodeo. Well in walks a beautiful green eyed cowboy, Wesley, and sparks fly. Their relationship is filled with doubt and uncertainty from Hope's past but can Wesley help her overcome it and see where they lead, or will it fizzle out as quickly as it started.
I loved the relationship between Hope and Amber, they are true best friends that would do anything for each other. You really hate Brad and all the crap he pulls on Hope. But the thing I loved the most was the true gentleman Wesley was, sometimes you just need to see that in a story!
I’m a bundle of nerves as I step out into the night air. It’s hard to not see him. He’s leaning against his truck. His back is to me and I almost don’t think he knows I am coming until he turns around to face me. My heart drops in my chest as I look into his eyes. We say nothing for a minute. We’re taking this time to rememorize each other, this time without the loud music and bright lights of the club. His hand reaches up and brushes against my cheek. I shudder trying to control myself. I missed his touch so much. I close my eyes praying this isn’t some dream but I open them and he’s here with his hand still on my cheek. “I miss you Hope.” He whispers. I won’t cry. I’m telling myself that. I’ll kick my own ass if I cry. I won’t be weak. “I miss you too,” I whisper almost inaudibly. We go back to not speaking. I can’t believe I’m standing outside in front of him. In front of the man who completely melts my heart. “Can you forgive me?” He leans in closing his mouth over mine and takes charge blowing my mind. I kiss him fiercely. “I can’t think of you being anyone else’s but mine Hope.” He says between kisses.
