QUICK NOTE...Update: 6/25/19

Still working through things. We were right in the path of Hurricane Michael (like so many others), and while the family is safe (pups, and parents), the house didn't fair as well. You'd think we'd be back in our home by now, since the disaster occurred October 2018, but nope. Things are very slow to progress towards normalcy...and every day presents a new headache/nightmare to deal with. Thanks for stopping by and sharing my bookish adventures. It helps remind me I'm not alone in this crazy journey called life.

About the book...
Dane Parker traded in his trailer-park roots for glory as a bull rider. But when a serious injury sidelines him for months, it’s the first time he can’t just pull himself up by his bootstraps. The last thing he wants to deal with is sweet family friend Bea treating him like one of her wounded animals—or the unexpected attraction that suddenly flares between them.

Beatrix Leighton has loved Dane for years, while he’s always seen her as another sister. When she enlists his help to start her animal sanctuary, she thinks it will give him purpose. Instead, it brings all the desire she feels for him to the boiling point. Bea’s father taught her early on that love means loss. But could her forbidden crush turn into a love that will last a lifetime?

Honestly, I was SO excited to see another book in this series, at first glance...I forgot who the story was going to be about.  I know, I know...read more carefully...but really, it's THIS series and THIS author; I knew I was in good hands!  At second glance, I was TOTALLY clued in (yay me!) and BEYOND ESTATIC because really, it's BEA and DANE!  If you've read the other Gold Valley series novels, you know how AMAZING these characters are and were dying to see what would happen...IF...yep, IF...I'll leave it at that.  *ahem*  After the last story ended with a particular (and painful!) splash of sorts, you were left with an unexpected cliffhanger...until now.

Rodeo superstar Dane Parker is down and out with a MAJOR injury thanks to a bull with a mind of its own.  Lucky for him, it didn't kill him...but, the path to healing just might, in more ways than one.  You see, he has a great nursemaid in long-time friend Beatrix Leighton...aka Bea...but she's not your typical caregiver.  She knows her way around injured animals like the back of her hand, so turning her skills on another person is as easy as riding a bicycle...she's a people pleaser, has been her whole life, always giving, never asking for more than given...even when it comes to unrequited crushes.  Yep, he's been her ideal for as long as she can remember, but she cares enough about him (or rather TOO much about him) to the extent that REALLY showing how deep her feelings run is scarier than facing off that bull that almost did Dane in.  Good thing chance and fate still exist because one of them is about to see things through new eyes while the other grabs the bull by the proverbial horns...

Seriously guys, this was SUCH a fun read.  You couldn't help but cheer Bea on in her quest to better her self, save all the animals, and get her man.  Grant it, the last was the least certain quest of the three, but with Bea anything is possible...even if it's an unknown area of expertise.  Really, we talk about which characters we'd like to be "best friends" with in the bloggy world, and I would totally count her as one on my list.  Then there's our man Dane, who despite his bada** persona, is really a good guy underneath it all.  He just needed a little help, a little sorting out, and enough personal drive/desire to get his personal history in the past, while really reaching for his future.  They BOTH had things to learn, feelings to process, and needs to be met, and while some had to be dealt with on their own, the rest of it was made for sharing...and oh when the fireworks fly, how they flew!


In summary, since you know I'm all about keeping the word count down (HAHAHAHA!), I leave you with my final reaction from GoodReads...




"OMG! I am SO internally squee-ing after finishing this one! I mean really...SO GOOD! I was REALLY worried for a bit because I just couldn't see how they were going to give what the other needed or take what the other was giving, but that ending? *sigh*"


Recommended for adult fans of the author as well as Contemporary and Western Romance readers.

About the author...


New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Maisey Yates lives in rural Oregon with her three children and her husband, whose chiseled jaw and arresting features continue to make her swoon. She feels the epic trek she takes several times a day from her office to her coffee maker is a true example of her pioneer spirit.

In 2009, at the age of twenty-three Maisey sold her first book. Since then it’s been a whirlwind of sexy alpha males and happily ever afters, and she wouldn’t have it any other way. Maisey divides her writing time between dark, passionate category romances set just about everywhere on earth and light sexy contemporary romances set practically in her back yard. She believes that she clearly has the best job in the world.
