While I typically like lighter fare, once in awhile a book comes along that just grabs you by the neck and doesn't let up. SWEET ON YOU is one of those books for its realistic portrayal of a soldier fighting severe PTSD while trying to get back into active duty and return to her team.

Katya Smith is fighting some seriously ugly demons from her time as an Army medic in Kandahar, Afghanastan. Used to healing others, she's now got to focus on getting herself healed if she'll ever be cleared to return to her post. In the meantime, Katya accepts a job on the Pro Bull Riding circuit working with spoiled athletes that should allow her to get out of her head and focus on healing from PTSD.

Cam "Cool Hand" Cahill is in his last year on the PBR. Although his body is ready for retirement, his mind thought he'd have a wife and kids by now, something to look forward to once he's out of the game. After a rocky start, Cam begins falling for the newest medic on the PBR tour, captivated by both her exotic beauty and her Valkyrie strength. But as their feelings grow, so does the uncertainty of the future. After all, Katya is determined to make it back to her family in Kandahar and Cam is determined that his future is with Katya.

SWEET ON YOU is book 3 in the Sweet on a Cowboy series, and besides being sweet and sexy, it packed an emotional wallop for anyone with loved ones in the armed forces. Katya's PTSD was so realistic and gut-wrenching, I felt like I was getting an unsanctioned glimpse into a soldier's fear, and it was a distinctly uncomfortable feeling. It made me connect with her deeply, the scars that she carries both on the inside and out.

Format: Kindle Edition
Katya Smith returns to the states from her tour of duty in Khandahar, where she was injured in a suicide bombing that claimed the life of a fellow soldier. She didn't return by choice, the bombing made that decision for her. Katya mostly recovered from her exterior wounds, but it's the wounds on the inside that are taking a toll on this fiercely independent and strong willed woman. Katya's beloved Gypsy grandmother passes away leaving her bereft and confused. A short visit with her cool appearing parents shows her she doesn't belong in their world. Through a friend, Katya gets a lead on a job working as a medic for the PBR (Professional Bull Riding). Hopefully this job will help Katya alleviate some of the flashes of terror she gets after the bombing and help her get over her PTSD so she can return to active duty as a medic for the military in Afghanistan.

Cam Cahill is an aging bull rider trying to find out what to do with himself after his impending retirement. Nothing seems to fit and he's not ready to pack it all in, even if his body is telling him otherwise with all the aches and pains he deals with on a daily basis. The handsome bull riding champion bides his time while he watches the up and coming cowboys begin to take over. After a disagreeable run in with a seemingly prejudiced Katya at an event, Cam can't decide if the eclectic beauty will suit as a medic on the PBR trail.
Once they get to know each other better, Cam realizes there is so much more to Katya than her appearance.

Once Katya proves to be an effective PT and worthy of being the medic she was hired to be, she begins attracting a following of riders who are quite taken with the gypsy's homemade curatives and her knack for easing their aches.

Laura Drake always manages to put a smile on my face... I always learn something new when I read her books. In this book I learned about buckle bunnies. What in the world is a buckle bunny you ask?! Well, I'll let you read the book to find out... :)
All of the books in this series can be read as stand alones. Each one gives us something different but all take place in the world of bull riding. You really don't need to know anything about bull riding to enjoy these stories. I don't know ANYTHING about this sport but have thoroughly enjoyed this entire series. This author has a way of pulling you in and tugging at your emotions. I shed a few tears at the end of this book... but, my emotions are easily manipulated... I'm a big 'ole softy.
This book might just be my favorite in the series because it addresses and issue that touches close to home for me... PTSD. I have several family members that suffer from this and I thought the author did a fantastic job at helping us understand the depth of this condition through her character Katya.
I simply loved both Katya and Cam... they are both at an emotional crossroads in their lives. Katya is fighting to find herself again after experiencing a devastating trauma and loss of a friend while stationed in Afghanistan. Cam is having to face the end of his bull riding career and has no idea who he will be or what he will do now that he is facing a new life without the one thing that has always defined him.
Katya is a physical therapist and she comes from a family of gypsies. Healing has always been her specialty. Having lost her ability to heal due to the PTSD she finds herself working alongside these tough and fearless cowboys while she waits to see if she will be able to go back at some point to her military family.
