New York Times bestselling author Lorelei James returns for another wild ride in Wyoming with a new Blacktop Cowboys® novel.
Years in the Army equipped Bailey Masterson for many things: target shooting, rappelling off cliffs, dodging grenades. She's lived through horrors that still give her nightmares. But nothing in Bailey's life-or-death training prepared her for caring for the tiny terror that is five-year-old Olivia Hale. Or how to control her raging attraction to Olivia's father, Streeter, the rugged, green-eyed cattle rancher who undermines her every move even when he stars in her dreams.
Streeter Hale has room for only two things in his life: his daughter and his job. He doesn't date. He doesn't get attached. Not anymore. So not only is Streeter stunned by Olivia's improved behavior after just a few days with Bailey, he's downright floored by his immediate attraction to the woman. But with secrets in her eyes and a body that doesn't quit, Streeter begins to worry that Bailey Masterson might just be the one woman to heal his fractured family and broken heart.
One thing's for sure--these two wrecked souls are spinning out of control as they desperately try not to fall in love...
This is an all feelings book. It gets down to the nitty gritty of some tough subjects. I laughed and I cried. It’s well written and enlightening. Streeter and Olivia have been through some hard times. Bailey has had some tough issues to work through and a future to thing about. We get to see how they work together and learn to love, trust and believe in each other.
Streeter and Bailey.....their story brought laughter, tears and WOW what a Cowboy. They are two people that life has thrown curve balls and as each are learning to cope them, they find each other. It’s not a beautiful gift, wrapped in a fancy bow...it’s life and you take the good with the bad and learn to live through the punches.
Streeter’s daughter Olivia is also a big part of this story and I just wanted to give her a great big hug.
I loved this book. As usual Lorelei has given us some hot love scenes mixed in with two people learning to navigate life as they have been handed it.
I highly recommend this book and all the other Blacktop Cowboy series. You cannot go wrong picking these to read.
If I could give this more than 5 stars, I would! I tried to read this book about Streeter and Bailey real slowly to savor it but, sadly, I couldn’t. I loved their story, very emotional. Sometimes sad but there was always hope inter dispersed throughout. I couldn’t wait to read it but I’m so sad that I’m done. Ms James still has that magic when writing. It doesn’t matter if it’s about cowboys, athletes, military, she can write them all. Another book that you need to RUN and buy! Oh, and love Olivia. It takes some special people to raise her.
