"Sloan hits it out of the park with her first Coming Home contemporary western romance[.] Maverick is a perfect hero: multilayered, complicated, deeply damaged, yet blooming with the new promise of love. Leighton is appealing and real, as are a strong supporting cast of characters whom readers will be glad to follow into sequels. Sloan enhances the gripping story with country songs that open each chapter. This absolutely spectacular effort catapults Sloan to the top of her genre." (--Publishers Weekly (starred review))
“The first book in Sloan’s Coming Home series is a super-sexy second-chance read with a handsome ex-rodeo cowboy hero and the girl he left behind. The characters are well-written and the bedroom scenes are hot…Sloan does a wonderful job with portraying the secondary characters, and it looks like Quinn’s story, which is next up, is going to be a good one.” (--RT VIP Salon)
“Sloan brings plenty of heat to this otherwise very thoughtful, building love story." (--Booklist)

Lost Rider did not disappoint. Maverick Davis was the perfect alpha with a touch of brooding and damaged. He'll have you swooning with his Southern drawal and sweet Southern charm.
Then there's Leighton James. The sweet girl next door who falls for her best friend's brother. She's been a part of the Davis' lives since diapers and could never shake the crush she had on Maverick. She's tough, sassy, and independent even through the curve balls that life threw her way and losing her heart to Maverick. She's always remained the same, a true Southern girl to the core making it hard not to love her.
Yet Maverick and Leighton's relationship isn't easy, in fact it's complicated. There's a lot of unsettled tension after 10 years, but regardless their chemistry was so palpable you could feel it through the pages. They healed each other, fixed one another's broken parts, and above all else they loved each other through it all.
This book definitely leaned more towards the contemporary romance genre, but it was still funny, sexy, and full of sweet perfect moments with equally great secondary characters. Bring on Clay and Quinn's stories! I can't get enough of the Davis siblings and I'm dying for their books right MEOW.
If you're looking for a read full of heart, second chances, healing, forgiveness, love, and family, then you must pick this book up!
Lost Rider had me going thru multiple different emotions:: Hope. Anger. Angst. Peace. Forgiveness. And Most of All- Love. That is the theme that runs as a current thru this book. No matter what is going on, love is running throughout.
The main characters in this book are Maverick Davis & Leighton James. Maverick left Leighton 10 years before when they were teenagers, with plans to never come back. Now he is coming home, after too many concussions have taken him off the Rodeo circuit. Maverick has come home to his father’s death and to Leighton hating him. He didn’t remember her looking as sexy as she does now. She was once the only person he could talk to about anything, was one the only person he could share things with and now she doesn't even want to speak to him. WOW Times change. Maverick is determined to make Leighton talk to him ,to see him again but he doesn’t realize the depth of her despair and of her pain which means Maverick has a tough road ahead of him in proving to Leighton that he is home and he is back in her life.
Leighton is a woman who has had a hard road in life. She had this huge love for Maverick which he threw away when she was but 18 years old. It was done in a pretty cruel manner. She has had to grow up, and find her own dreams without the man she loved with her of her heart. When he left her, she was broken, and bruised. Her dreams didn’t come easy and her life didn’t come without fights but she is where she is now in life, by the drive she had to prove something and that was she could be something without him in her life and she is somewhat happy- she has her bakery and she has Maverick’s sister and brother (Quinn and Clay ) in her life as good friends. She doesn’t want him back in town, she doesn’t want him yet a part of her is happy he is back in town yet she fights those feelings.
There are deep and lacerating wounds that have to be healed before they can fully be together and not everything can be avoided which is what this story focuses on. That and what family really is. It’s a story about family and rediscovering those roots and making up for those you hurt. That is what this story also focuses on. Maverick and Leighton’s story will have you grabbing for tissues and rooting for their HEA. Their passion is deep and their love is one heck of a 2nd chance love story. It is so beautiful and the plot is fantastic, but it is written by Harper Sloan so yes, you will get that awesome plot, that beautifully written story. I look forward to reading the stories of Clay and Quinn.
My rating: 4.9 stars ****
"I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book in exchange for an honest review***
A book you won't soon forget is the first thing that comes to mind as I finish Lost Rider. I have read every book Harper Sloan has ever released so to say I am a fan is an understatement and this new series is another winner. She knows how to write suspenseful stories with gorgeous alpha men. Harper also perfects interweaving characters so you get blissfully wrapped up in a long series of books where all the characters mingle together so well you won't forget them for a very long time.
This beginning of her Coming Home series is a great start to hopefully a long series to come. In the past she has written suspense with lots of rescuing of the heroines and holding your breath to see what happens but this is a slight departure from that. I feel like a lot of books I have read seem to have a bit of fluff and make quick work of plot lines. This story definitely has a great depth to it.
Maverick and Leigh have known each other forever and definitely had a rocky start. The book looks back on them as teenagers and you quickly learn the heartbreak that tore them apart. Maverick is a famous bull rider while Leigh owns a popular Pie Shop. They come back together after awhile of being apart to instant chemistry. Lost Rider is set with a western theme and I have to say I loved it. Harper even named each chapter with a country song and it makes for a great playlist while reading.
While her other books are more action based Lost Rider focuses more on the characters and their struggle to overcome their past. While their is a heavy emphasis on emotion there is definitely a funny side as well as you get to know everyone. I highly recommend you go one click Lost Rider!!
