Mustang and Cowboy

Wild horses couldn’t keep me away from this story! It was original, thought provoking, hurtful, joyful....EVERYTHING you’d ever want in a romance! Melissa Foster excelled in weaving Brindle’s pregnancy into a meaningful, relatable story. Brindle is a wild, free spirit who doesn’t always think before she speaks. It took a lonely trip overseas to truly find herself. Even though her trip to Paris was a lonely one, she finally realized her love for Trace. Brindle realized she didn’t just love Trace, but she enjoyed his company and friendship. When she returns home, hurtful words are exchanged. Before she knows it, she and Trace have fallen right back into their same destructive behavior. Wanting the best for herself and her baby, Brindle vows to change her ways.

Trace was a wreck while Brindle was away. He was hurt she didn’t include him in her plans, but even more surprised when she returns pregnant. Brindle has ALWAYS been “it” for Trace, but he’s always been too afraid to pressure Brindle for fear she’d take off. Even though she’s hurt him more than words can say, he vows to stick by her and prove to her how great they are together.

Best story in the series! I gobbled it up in one sitting. Relationships are HARD work! They’re aren’t easy and they require a lot of compromise. You have to learn from your mistakes and break the hurtful patterns that can turn love into hate. I loved how Trace “took over” and started doing things his way. I also enjoyed the parallels between mustangs and Brindle. I can’t wait to see how the rest of the family’s lives unfold. I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.

Love this book universe!

I just love that Melissa can continue this series in multiple sub-series that all intertwine and keep the stories going! Picking up where the last book ends, we find that Brindle is pregnant and feeling unsure of her feelings towards Trace after their longtime relationship and how her life is going to change. After taking a longer than anticipated vacation to sort through everything, she arrives back home ready to talk to the father of the baby, Trace. What she doesn’t expect is that he assumes and accuses Brindle of being pregnant with someone else’s baby, taking all those feelings she sorted through moot point. The bulk of the book’s storyline is the two sorting through their feelings while also preparing for the birth of their child. Overall it was a really cute book, especially finally seeing the two of them end up together and happy after the back and forth for so long! Love this series, love this author and can’t wait for the next installment!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Trindle forever!

Always happy when a new Melissa Foster book comes out! I knew that Brindle and Trace was going to be a volatile couple and they didn’t disappoint! My emotions were all over the place right along with Brindle’s hormonal mood swings! I’m never disappointed in a when a Braden or Montgomery is involved in the story!
