Cowboy Luke Wilder only wanted a beer at Grey’s Saloon. Instead he ends up in a fight with a brother he never knew and dumped by a fiery red headed bull breeder he only asked to dance. So much for keeping a low profile. But Luke Wilder is stubborn, and no woman’s ever said no to him twice, in business or pleasure.
Tanner McTavish is more focused on breeding champion bucking bulls than in making out with cowboys, unless that cowboy’s Luke Wilder. She’s had a crush on him for years, and the Copper Mountain Rodeo could be her chance for a little romance except she needs Luke on her side for a new business opportunity. Flirting and kissing are off limits. Too bad Tanner’s never played by the rules…

Luke Wilder had avoided the Copper Mountain Rodeo for years for a very good reason. The first day he was in Marietta everything that could go wrong seemed to happen. He freaked-out a woman, got into a fight with a guy who turned out to be a brother that he didn’t know about, pissed off his mother and got thrown out of a bar. And that was just within the first few hours. Luke really needed to focus on the rodeo and didn’t need any distraction. What else could go wrong?
Tanner McTavish was back at her family ranch raising rodeo bulls while her father recovered from an injury. She had a masters in genetics and animal science and had started her PhD before putting it on hold to go help her father. Her dream was to have Triple T bulls on the IBR Tour.
Tanner had seen Luke on the rodeo circuit and secretly had a crush on him. He was the IBR representative who showed up on her ranch for the appointment about her bulls. Luke planned to spend a couple days after the rodeo at the ranch observing the entire operation and meeting the ranch hands. Things heat up when an attraction between Luke and Tanner grows. But Luke has a secret that he knows Tanner will be upset when she finds out. And Tanner does find out when her twin sister returns home and spills the beans. This was not what Luke needed right before the rodeo. Will anything go right for Luke in Marietta?
This book was a wild ride. There was a lot of family drama in the story on both character’s sides. But it was how they overcame the things that should have torn them apart that kept the book interesting. The author did a good job keeping the pace of the story and with the character’s backgrounds. There was an unanswered question, but I believe they will be answered in a future book. All around it was a good story.
