April Grayson is the responsible one in her family of wild, barrel
racing rodeo stars. After years of keeping her sisters out of trouble,
she’s finally earned some time to let loose. She indulges in a one-night
stand with the cowboy she crushed on in high school. It’s as hot as it
is memorable, but the next day she finds out Cole works for her new
accounting client. He’s dead set against having one of the "Wild Grayson
Sisters" working on Three Sisters Ranch.
Last Stand rodeo youth director Cole Lockwood loves horses, kids, and cowgirls—not necessarily in that order. Even though his night with April leaves him wanting more, his parents’ medical bills have him working 24/7. He’s tempted to go back to his professional gambling ways and enter a high stakes poker game, but April warns that’s a loser’s bet.
Cole and April strike a deal: she’ll teach him about managing his family's finances if he helps her overcome her fear of horses and learn how to be a little more reckless. Can this cowboy make a cowgirl out of her?
Gambling on love.
April had a huge crush on Cole when she was in school, but
didn’t dare make a move on him. Years
later, they run into each other at a bar and things got steamy in the cab of Cole’s
pickup. Days later, they find themselves
working together and they pick up where they left off. But April and Cole are total opposites. April is the sensible one, when it comes to
money. Growing up poor taught her to
make wise choices with her money. Cole is
a risk taker, especially when it comes to poker. This starts to cause some tension in their
new relationship and it is going to take some work to get them on the same page
This was a fun, fast paced story. I enjoyed seeing how April and Cole's relationship grew, and survived, even when Cole goes a little crazy with his gambling. This book is part of a series, but can be read as a stand-a-lone too.
