Manager for Hart’s Horse Rescue, Lucy Lenoir, finally feels she has a handle on life after having worked hard to leave her old one behind. So hard, there are times she almost forgets what she escaped. Memories which suddenly come flooding back when she catches a glimpse of a familiar horseman in town.
What’s worse, he’s in the company of the unlikely cowboy she’s only just beginning to trust.
High Mountain Tracker, Bo Rivera, tries hard never to repeat his mistakes. A huge one changed the course of his life and made him particularly cautious, especially around women. So much so, he almost passed up on the best thing to ever walk into his life; the compact, blonde ballbuster in need of a gentle hand.
However, the more he learns about her, the more he realizes a soft touch alone won’t keep her demons at bay. Those will need a firmer hand…to keep the gun steady.
Hart’s Horse Rescue Manager Lucy Lenoir landed on Alexander Hart’s doorstep when she left her past behind after fleeing an abusive relationship. Knowing Lucy has a few demons to slay, Alex respects her privacy and does not want to press her for details. Alex realizes Lucy will talk when she is ready, knowing deep down, Lucy has a soft soul and always tries to help anyone who has been abused, sometimes landing her in trouble with the abuser. Having moved to the High Meadow Ranch with Jonas Harvey, Lucy is the main caretaker for the rescue now.
Already cautious where women are concerned, Bo Rivera has been waiting on the sidelines for the skittish Lucy to quit running from him. Not wanting to be dependent on anyone, it takes attacks on the rescue before she allows Bo to help. Unknown to Lucy, the past has now found her and it is up to Bo and the HRT team to work together to save her.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
I have been waiting for Bo and Lucy since they first met in this series. Finally we get to see them get their chance. No has been holding back from pursuing something with Lucy because of something that happened with a younger women in his past. Unknown to him, Lucy is older than he believes her to be. Lucy has a past and she has always been on the move to make sure it doesn’t catch up to her. But she has made friends and started to set up roots and Bo throws her off her game when trying to not let anyone all the way in. Learning more about these two and their part was great. I loved Bo’s mom as well. When Lucy’s past catches up to her, she believes running is the only way to save herself and most likely her new family of friends. I don’t want to give anything away as I loved it from start to finish and you definitely don’t want any spoilers. Just sad my time with the High Meadow Trackers has come to an end though it is a good one.
Yes!! Bo and Lucy are my favorite couple in the series to date! I loved every single thing about their story. Lucy is such a wonderfully rounded character and Bo is just dreamy. I was on the edge of my seat through this entire book.
