Review: Betting on the Bull Rider (The Elliotts of Montana #2) by Kaylie Newell

Opposites attract, and then they'll ignite

Alice Bloom plays by a book of rules that’s crushing her alive. She’s resigned to her safety-first lifestyle until she meets local heartbreaker Jake Elliott. Jake is everything she’s not – smooth-talking, fearless, and inconveniently gorgeous. She has every intention of steering clear, until Jake proposes a sexy bet. And then it’s game on.

Ride-like-there’s-nothing-to-lose bull rider Jake Elliott has nothing in common with the straight-laced, look-both-ways-before-crossing-the-street Alice Bloom. But when she tells him that he’s too wild, too reckless for her blood, he can’t get her out of his mind. Jake loves a challenge. And Alice might be his toughest one yet.

What have they got to lose? Problem is, nobody planned on falling head-over-boots in love.

My Review: 

Alice Bloom and Jake Elliott were as different as night and day.  Alice lets her fears rule her life.  Being a funeral director, she knows how precious life can be, so she refuses to take chances with anything dangerous.  Being a bull rider, Jake is an adrenaline junkie.  When Alice and Jake meet, there is an instant attraction, but Alice knows it can never go far because she couldn't handle Jake's risk-taking lifestyle.  But when they become friends and after a series of harmless bets, Alice just might realize love is worth taking the risk.

This was a fun book to read.  I enjoyed seeing how Alice and Jake's relationship fell in place and how they got their happy ending.  This is a second book in a series, but can be read as a stand-alone.
