Skylar Grey lost everything when her fiancé died. But her move back to her hometown, Billings, Montana is not the fresh start she seeks, as too many people know her tragic tale. But then she meets a bull riding cowboy who treats her like she's made of fire and everything changes.
Cody Galen joined the American Extreme Bull Riders Tour to make money, not friends. He enjoys whiskey, winning, and women and he doesn’t care who he pisses off while he pursues the hell out of all three. He figures he only has a few years left before his body gives out and he might as well go down hard in a blaze of glory. He knows the pretty thing he meets his first night in Billings is no buckle bunny, but if she wants to play that role, who is he to argue?
Neither one of them is looking for anything lasting. But there’s only one thing more dangerous than riding bulls—and that’s love.

Another great bull rider story.
Cody keeps everyone at a distance. Skylar is trying to rediscover herself two years after the death of her fiance. They both are the perfect balm for each other's souls.
Skylar really closed off her feelings, and was really good at acting how she felt she should be acting. She was being smothered with sympathy from everyone around her. It was to the point that she was no longer herself, she was just a "living shrine" to her dead fiance.
Cody was dealing with his own demons. His mother was in an abusive relationship and he was trying to help her and his half sisters, while also keeping enough of a distance to protect himself. He never let anyone on the tour get close to him.
I really liked both characters and how well they fit together. This was a very hot story, interlaced with some very heartfelt moments.
Cody by Megan Crane
Buyer beware! The story and characters were interesting. Enjoyed reading their open love saga and internal struggles. Then within one chapter, they declared their love, read a brief description that they were married, built a house, had children, helped family.....so terribly rushed. Not worth my payment of $3.99.
Bull Riders & Love
I truly enjoyed Cody by Megan Crane, the fourth book in the American Extreme Bull Riders Tour. Skylar Grey and Cody Galen were not looking for love or a lasting relationship when they meet. Skylar was still trying to find herself after losing her fiancé and Cody did not know how to love someone. Yet, somehow fates decided that these two needed each other; no matter their tempers, stubbornness, warts and all, in order to make sense of their lives.
I really enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting this book down, reading it in one day. Ms. Crane is a wonderful story teller and she seems to always draw me into her books, making me forget the world around me. I highly recommend this book to other readers.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
