From the Author
This year, my sweet Billy was supposed to retire, then we were supposed to sell our house here in east Texas and move closer to home in central Texas. By now, we were supposed to be watching our new home becoming a reality, and by next late next month, we were supposed to be moving in.
Well, Billy retired April 8, and that's as far as we got.
In March, my mammogram showed a suspicious lump not bigger than the nail-bed on my pinkie finger, and the biopsy proved it to be cancerous. The pathology report said it was ER positive and HER2 positive. If you've had breast cancer before, you might be familiar with these terms. The positive reading on the estrogen receptors isn't too bad, but the HER2 protein being positive is scary. That's what makes the type of cancer I have more aggressive. According to the pathology report after the lumpectomy in April, 15% of the cells were reproducing. HER2 positive cancer is invasive and can come back anywhere in the body.

From the Back Cover
Talon Carlson is a rugged bull rider from Texas.
He thinks she's too polished.
She thinks he's insane.
Opposites aren't quick to attract when the lady who enters the cowboy's world is on a mission to sell the ranch. But a box of letters changes her mission-letters of unshakable faith and a love deeper than anything she's ever experienced.
Soon she finds his integrity appealing. Her spunk draws him in. He has the faith she craves; she may be the love he longs for. But faith and love aren't achieved in a single weekend.
To buy time to explore the possibilities between them, she issues a challenge: "Teach me to ride bulls."
From here on, they're in for the ride of their lives. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

First I found it beyond be, if that the two main male characters each had lost both parents in tragic accidents. Seriously! No other idea to bring them together could be found. Then both main characters had a dead spouse, or fiancé. Again, really. Pretty convenient but lacks imagination.
Pat, had a faith crisis and chose to test God to see if He loved her. I find that so juvenile that I shake my head. That is never what God is about and really I don’t feel people should be encouraged to think that way. God loves us because He created us, not because we can do something or prove anything. That is just not correct spiritual thinking.
All in all, this was ok as a book for summer reading but not something I would tell everyone to read.
This was a great story. One I thoroughly enjoyed from start to finish. This author was new to me so I wasn't sure what to expect but I knew by the cover I wanted to find out what was tucked inside. The author has an easy writing style that makes reading a pleasure. Her characters were larger than life and I enjoyed getting to know them all. There was a secondary story going on with Talon's 'brother' Chance and Patricia's best friend Marie which was extremely enjoyable. Both Talon and Chance were wonderful heroes and very romantic. I loved all the interaction between all the characters. The description of the bull riding scenes were so good I felt like I was watching a movie. This story contained some great little spiritual nuggets you gather alone the way which I really liked. I would love to see another installment. If you enjoy an easy-to-read contemporary western with lots of great characters then I suggest you try Give the Lady A Ride. I will be looking forward to other offerings by Linda Yezak.
out. Sell the ranch with little trouble and no strings attached.
Unfortunately for her plans, she becomes interested. Not only in the
beautiful country, but in the foreman of the ranch that used to belong
to her Uncle Jake.
Still, she's not about to interrupt her prosperous city life where she is
the daughter of a senator, and also his social coordinator.
Besides, after finding out how many of her friends in New York are
only her friends in order to be close to her father, she's not ready to take on any new
relationships. Especially risking her heart for the second time.
Talon Carlson was raised by Jake and thought of him as a father. His one hope now is that
Patricia might not sell the ranch.
Before long those hopes are dashed. Can he make it through the pain surrounding not only her
heart, but his?
Finally, Patricia issues a challenge to buy some time.
"Teach me how to ride bulls."
Can they get beyond the hostility that marks the beginning of their relationship, and find trust
and love again?
Linda Yezak pulls you from your surroundings, and places you in the middle of a Texas cow
town. Where men still hold the doors open for ladies, and cowboys ride bulls. Not to test what
kind of men they are, but just for the ride.
This book kept me reading. The heroine has enough uncertainty to make you wonder if there's
time in the book to make the decisions she'll be forced to, and the hero has the good qualities
with the quick temper to match.
I look forward to reading more by this author from the state of Texas, who isn't afraid to spin

I don't want to give away details, but I will say that I enjoyed the four main characters as well as secondary characters. There's spunk, determination, humility, and laughter combined in a good western story and I enjoyed it. I'd love to read a sequel!
If you enjoy Christian westerns, I recommend this quirky, fun read.
