You can't help but sympathize with the heroine, Laney. She's such a strong heroine whose love and protection of her son make her tremendously endearing. From page one, she's such a force to be reckoned with, always jumping to protect those she loves with little regard for herself. I rooted for this character from the start.
The hero, Cody Utah (Ha, love the name), is a down-to-earth man who fought to bring himself up in the world and make a name for himself. And he did, as a professional bull rider. Having a horrible childhood, he's reluctant to settle and be part of a family much less start one.
To be honest, I even liked Justin. Might have popped him a few times for being a typical teenaged boy. However, I don't really care for kids, so there you go. Though, it's easy to empathize with his rebellious nature. Missing an important part of your family can definitely cause such behavior.
All in all, I loved this book. Once again, Ms. Lindun shows her expertise with horses and ranching, which I happen to enjoy reading. And she crafted a well-developed, emotional read that I couldn't put down. And I have to say the end result was so very rewarding for me. I even had a little tear in my eye when Cody answered one particular question Laney asked him toward the end of the story, which I have to share - '"Because you were watching," he said simply.' That one simple line made my heart swell for the heroine. One thing I've noticed and love about Ms. Lindun's heroes is while they may be men of few words and only say one plain or straightforward line of dialogue, there is a wealth of meaning behind that one little line.
by D’Ann Lindun
Laney is a mom who’s had a rough life. She only wants to care for her son, Justin and her farm. But when Justin begins to dream of being a bull-rider, Laney has to come to grips with her son growing up and the fear from her past.
Cody Utah is a famous bull-rider who wants to start his own bull-riding school. He’s Laney’s neighbor and the one person Justin runs to when he set his sights on bull-riding.
Ms. Lindun tells a heartwarming tale of a mom who will do anything to protect her son, even face her biggest fears. Cody is a sexy cowboy who is determined to not fall for a woman, let alone one with a child. Yet he can’t help falling for Laney. She’s a great mother and a cutie pie.
I love this book from the Cowboys of Black Mountain series. I’ve read many of the others but not in order of written, so you don’t have to read them in order. A Cowboy to Keep is also a wonderful stand alone book, especially if you love strong characters and a superb setting. A must read!
A very good read that I HIGHLY recommend.
