Lucky Chance Cowboy

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley and I am voluntarily reviewing it.

This is a story that I just got lost in. It is the second one in a series and can really be read as a stand-alone but I would highly recommend reading the first story "Big Chance Cowboy". It will really help to get a feel for the characters and the situation regarding the rescue mission.

Marcus is just the all-around "people-schmoozer". Due to injuries sustained during war, he was injured along with the rest of his team, he is on limited disability status. Marcus' back was severely injured but being a soldier was all he ever wanted. He is trying to get back to the teams and go to war again. He meets Emma and there is an immediate attraction between the two. Emma is a widow as well as the sister of his sargent. Her husband has been gone for two years and Emma can't get over the feeling that she failed her PTSD husband. Between the lying and drugs it was rough for her.

I adored these two characters and loved being able to read how they overcame their obstacles to get to their HFN ending. I loved the dual POV format that this book is written in as well. Getting that glimpse into the character's thoughts really helped me to connect with the character.

The plot just flowed beautifully. I couldn't wait to see what the author had in store for these two. Unfortunately that meant that the book was over before I really wanted to be! I just hope there are more stories coming about the rescue ranch.

This is a slightly sexy read. There was some action BUT the author I think did a great job in not having overly graphic detail. It was really all about the two characters and their story.

If you adore the wounded protagonists (especially a sexy Army Ranger!) and don't mind a slightly sexy read, then I highly recommend this story (actually the prior book as well) especially if you are over 18.
