Hope Trahan has everything she wants and everyone she needs…except her sister and someone who really is deserving of her. Who knew two separate events would turn everything completely upside down? When her best friend drags her down to the rodeo to help clear her head the last thing she expects is to meet a sexy, sweet talking cowboy. That’s not what she came for but fate had other things in mind. 

Wesley Tyler owns two national titles and is riding his way to the next. The day he meets Hope, he knows there’s no going back. He soon learns Hope carries ghosts with her she can’t quite shake. She holds things she wishes she could let go of. Wesley just may hold the key to helping her overcome it all. Can he win her over and help mend her broken walls or will her past hold her down?

I want to start with this is a really good "Cowboy" romance. I am a sucker for a sexy man in tight jeans, a cowboy hat, and boots.  Not to mention a great body, and whose imagination just won't take off.  Well let me tell you, this book has it all.
Ashley Johnson grabs you by the heart right from the beginning with the hurt that Hope experiences.  She has to deal with loss more times than one person should have to. With the love and support from her best friend Amber, and both of her parents she has learned to cope with pain, loss, and heartache.  Hope's reality takes a flip upside down by her so called fiancee' Brad.  Amber being the best friend she is, jumps right in and stands beside Hope.  Amber convinces Hope to go to a rodeo with her, even though this is a very hard and even traumatic task for Hope.  Not wanting to let her best friend down, she agrees and is soon rewarded by meeting Wesley Tyler, a bareback bronc champion.

Even after just meeting Wes, sparks seem to fly between these two, and between their hearts and fate, they have no control over the feelings that develop quickly.  Wesley is just smitten with Hope and is willing to do whatever it takes to get the girl.  The question is will Hope be able to overcome her own personal demons and be willing to allow her heart the happiness is so deserves by accepting what fate has in store?

Sit back and enjoy this "8 second" ride between Hope and Wesley.  Will they be able to hang on, or will they get bucked off?  If Hope's ex, Brad, has his way they will fall.  Can love, a few unexpected events, and a little help from Hope's best friend help them reach the bell?
