From this "fabulous storyteller" (Carolyn Brown, New York Times bestselling author) comes a sweet western romance between a rodeo cowboy and his best friend's ex-wife.
What's the saying, bad luck comes in threes? If so, Lily Green is due for something good. First, her divorce is finalized---on her birthday, no less. Then the first job she lands for her catering company turns out to be for her ex-husband's wedding. To top it off, she's stuck working the event with Luke Everett, the sexy-as-hell best man who's never been able to stand her. When can a girl catch a break?
For years, Luke has kept his feelings for Lily safely hidden. Hitting on his best friend's ex-wife would definitely break the cowboy code of honor. But ever since an injury sidelined his rodeo riding, the two of them keep getting thrown together. It's only a matter of time until his true feelings come to light. When that happens, it will either be the biggest mistake of his life, or a sign that his luck is about to change.
"Cross my heart, this sexy, sweet romance gives a cowboy-at-heart lawyer a second chance at first love and readers a fantastic ride." -- New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Ryan on Second Chance Cowboy
In this sweet and engrossing second Crossroads Ranch contemporary (after Second Chance Cowboy), a divorc e winds up in the arms of her ex's best friend. Chef Lily Green has sold her half of the restaurant she shared with her ex-husband, Tucker, but she can't bring herself to leave central California. Even accidentally accepting the job to cater his upcoming wedding doesn't faze her (too much), until she realizes she'll have to work closely with his friend Luke Everett, a rancher and rodeo rider. Luke and Lily have always been like "oil and water" despite a promising meet-cute at a line dancing joint three years ago. Once they set their bickering aside, Luke proves to be both protective and supportive of Lily, but she has trouble trusting their newfound harmony. Both are insecure and worried about the future, particularly Lily, who can't understand why an already injured Luke would risk his life for one last try at making the national bull riding finals. This series installment can be comfortably read as a standalone, and Pine makes it easy to care about the Everett brothers and the women they love.
