Book Description

Champion bull rider Brody Caldera returns home after his stepfather’s accident only to discover things have changed big time.

When rancher James McKenna is critically injured in a riding accident, his wife calls his daughter and stepson home for a family meeting. Ironically, home is just where stepson Brody Caldera wants to be. He’s taking stock of his life—past, present, and future. Can the champion bull rider turn his life around and make up for his past mistake?

Single mom Stephanie Chambers hopes to keep her daughter away from the man who deserted them years ago. But the spunky ten-year-old is enamored with the famous cowboy, and Stef’s best intentions are sidetracked from day one. She’s made a life for herself and her daughter, but Brody’s return challenges what Stef knows about herself and that life she’s created.

One moment he felt contentment, but the next moments sent his life reeling towards home--a place he never belonged, a past he'd abandoned in favor of chasing his dreams.'s where you go when your past, present, and future collide.

When Brody Caldera left the McKenna family ranch in Montana, his dreams of becoming a champion bull rider took precedence over everything else, including the girl he'd impregnated and the step-family he'd never felt he fit into. That was pretty much all in the past until he entered his Chicago condo to find the woman he hoped to marry in bed with another man, followed by his half-sister calling him home to Montana due to a family emergency. Suddenly, a man who'd achieved his ultimate dream and who was at the pinnacle of his career had a long trip home in which to mull over the past, the present, the future, and his return to a place where he still didn't belong.

It had been less than two years since Stephanie Chambers had returned to the McKenna family's ranch in Montana, and the McKenna family had been good to her and her ten year-old daughter Olivia since her father had passed away. Steph had been trying to hold things together at the McKenna dude ranch since patriarch James McKenna's accident had left him comatose, but news that Brody Caldera was returning to be at his mother's side reignited the bitter memories of Brody choosing his rodeo dreams over her and their unborn child.

Yet, Steph knew the situation at hand would make it impossible for Brody to keep the promises she'd extracted from him when he'd made his fateful decision to put his dreams first.

4.0 out of 5 stars Reviewed by Cocktails and Books October 29, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
For a short read this book had a lot of depth and feeling in it and the author did a fantastic job of letting you get to know the main characters and coonect with them and the other characters in the story. The plot was interesting and kept you turning the pages to see what would happen next. Although the outcome was very predictable it was a sweet and romantic read and it showed just how families are everything that is important in our lives, and what we may miss out on if we turn our backs on them.

Brody left his family run ranch to become a professional bull rider leaving everything behind, including Stephanie. When he returns 10 years later he finds himself once again falling in love, or has he ever fallen out of love with her. Their story is one of learning to trust and love again, letting go of past hates and getting to know each other once again. Both Stephanie and Brody have changed but the chemistry and the love they had for each other is still burning. Learning to trust and love again is hard for Stephanie and she sure doesn't make it easy for Brody, add in what his family is living through and he has his work cut out for him.

I am looking forward to the next book in the series, the author did a great job with pulling you into their world and you just know what is coming next will not be easy. I would recommend this book, but be ready to read the next one as there are unanswered questions at the end of the book. I can hardly wait to read the next book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Life is more complicated than riding bulls. July 7, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Brody leaves his career as a champion bull rider to return to the family ranch after his stepfather is injured. He encounters the resentment of his siblings. He finds that his old girlfriend is living and working at the ranch, and she has a 10 year old daughter. The relationships are complicated but intriguing. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series. Each book will be about one of Brody's siblings.
