This ride is going to last a lot longer than eight seconds…
Female professional bull rider, Reece Hearst, graduated from the school of hard knocks. With honors. Because life is like bull riding—when it sends you to the dirt, you do whatever it takes to get on your feet, even if you have to crawl. After a rough senior year, she fixed Lonesome Point in her rearview, joined the pro circuit, and never looked back. But now a serious injury threatens to end her career and she’s back in Lonesome Point, living next door to the family that made her life a living hell.
After multiple tours of duty in Afghanistan, all Grayson Parker wants is to get his family’s cattle business back in the black and live a quiet life. But the return of Reece Hearst makes “quiet” impossible.
Though it’s hard to care when Reece makes chaos so much fun…
Soon, Grayson longs to be the man to show this wounded cowgirl that there is life after loss. But can two damaged people find their way to happily ever after? Or will the scars on their hearts keep them apart?

I think this is my favorite so far out of the series. I loved it.
Review: Lonesome Point, Texas #4: Glitter and Grit
Glitter and Grit by Jessie Evans is the fourth book in her Lonesome Point, Texas Series. This series is an awesome combination of romance and modern cowboy.
Reece's story was very moving. Prior to this book we only knew her as Tulsi's standoffish, professional bull-riding sister. Now we get the story behind the attitude and aloofness.
Grayson Parker is back. He's been gone from Lonesome Point for years. He enlisted after his mother died and has barely looked back. With his fathers recent and sudden death it's now down to him to take over the family ranch and help protect his sister Laney from her abusive ex-husband.
A chance meeting at a bar on Christmas Eve causes these two to cross paths and it's not until the next day that they realize the significance of who they went home with. Things only escalate from there.
The beauty of this series is that so far the stories have all intertwined and been about the people of Lonesome Point but have not been formulaic. Each story is unique to the characters and is a treasure to read.
This series just keeps getting better and better!
I love Jessie's Lonesome Point Texas series. So much. I want to know these people, I want to live with them. These small town people are full of life, emotion, sass and love. Jessie just gets better and better. I love the way she writes and I can't wait to read the next book because I know it will be amazing! She has given me more book boyfriends this year than any other author! She has this wonderful way of bringing her characters to life with their smart mouths, dynamic personalities and hearts of gold.
Glitter and Grit is the story of Reece and Grayson. Reece is Tulsi's sister and she's back in town after a rodeo accident. She meets Grayson one night and neither of them knows who the other is. It's the perfect scenario since she's only in town for a few days. Once she realizes who he is she runs, it's what she does best; runs to escape her painful past. Grayson isn't going to let her go without a fight. Reece decides she could use a friend, but Grayson feels like more than a friend. Can she risk her heart with this brooding stranger or when it's time to leave town will she run again. Will Grayson lay his heart on the line and ask her to stay? This is such a wonderful, emotional story that I could not put down. Grayson is smokin' hot, sweet and refreshingly thirty-eight years old! :) and Reece is a hilarious spitfire! I love seeing leading ladies that are tough, stubborn and can take care of themselves. Thank you Jessie for another book boyfriend and I can't wait for Cole and Layla's story!
She couldn't remember a damned thing about the body beneath his gray sweater and dark jeans. Which was a crying shame. Broody was even more handsome in the daylight with his blue eyes catching the dim light penetrating the shadows of the barn and his cowboy hat settled on his head.
Reece didn't really want to watch Die Hard, she wanted to crawl into Grayson's lap, straddle his thick thighs, and rub all over him like a cat in heat.
