Summary: The story begins and continues throughout to be very atypical. It begins when one of the main characters (Luke) returns to his hometown to attend the funeral of his father. Luke had not spoken to his father in years and had a tumultuous relationship with the man.
Luke runs into ex-girlfriend (Shannon) and falls in love again. Shannon is drawn toward Luke now that he has grown and tries to fight her feelings. As he tries to pursue his dream of being in the rodeo circuit, he soon feels compelled to help Shannon at her animal rescue shelter. Soon he realizes that when he left town years ago, he left a piece of himself that he had long ago forgotten about. He soon misses the small town atmosphere and the heartfelt relationship of the townspeople.
He does get his shot at the bull riding championship, but is this what he really wants or does he want the life he could have with Shannon in their small hometown?
Review: This is a very sweet contemporary romance. It truly is a love story, but has no real surprises and no real mystery. As the story progresses, you can almost assume what is going to happen. If you like soft romances with a focus on family you will like this book.
