Only one pair of boots—and the cowboy wearing them—can get Annie out of the mess she’s in.
Annie Wilkerson is Moose Creek’s premiere horse trainer and equine columnist for Montana Living. Money is tight as she tries to put her kid-sister through college and provide for her young nephew. When Annie’s column is cancelled, she’s given first shot at a new lovelorn column—and she can’t afford to turn it down. Only problem is . . . Annie’s never been in love.
Always resourceful, she reluctantly strikes a deal with the town’s smooth-talking ladies’ man Dylan Taylor: She’ll work with his ailing horse, Braveheart, if he’ll help her answer the reader letters.
Working closely with Dylan is harder than Annie imagined, and she quickly realizes she may have misjudged him. But her unwavering conviction that cowboys are nothing but trouble has kept her heart safe for years. And she can’t risk getting hurt now.
The more Annie tries to control things, the more they fall apart. Her feelings are spinning out of control, and her sister’s antics are making life increasingly more difficult. Annie knows she needs to turn the reins over to God, but surrender has never come easily.
When Dylan reveals his feelings for her, Annie doesn’t know what to trust—her head or her heart. The trouble with this cowboy is that he might just be exactly what she needs.
This book was pretty good. Annie is amazing with horses...not so much with men. She has a boyfriend, John, and he is stable, dependable and NOT a cowboy. She had enough on her plate with her sister and nephew to care for without picking a man that will always leave. Dylan Taylor IS a cowboy and makes her heart beat wild. He also needs her help with his horse and she has always been a sucker for a horse in need...
I enjoyed most of the characters in this book. I'll start out by saying I had issues with Annie's little sister. She was irresponsible and ungrateful, but at least she was a good mother. Now, the characters I completely enjoyed were Dylan and Annie. Annie's issues because of her dad were understandable and after all she'd been through with her mother, who wouldn't have a complex? I was interesting in the fact that she judged Dylan just like everyone else seemed to but came to realize that wasn't her job. Dylan has his own issues and works through them well but there is more to this story than just their love.
I rate this a 4/5. It was a good continuation of this series!
