Laney Beckett doesn't want anything to do with her late husband's rodeoing best friend, Slade Mckenna. She blames him and his rough and wild ways for her husband's accident.
Slade knows that Laney doesn't approve of him and his way of life, and that she blames it from the loss of her husband, but Slade sees a need, and figures that the least he can do is help her find her feet and teach her to take care of the ranch.
But what they find together may just surprise them both.
When this book started out it was a little tough to figure out what was going on, but once I had that straightened out it was a terrific read.
I loved that Slade just wanted to do his best to help Laney, and even when he over stepped his boundaries, he only did it out of purely noble intentions.
Slade is a new Christian who had recently accepted Christ along with Brody, Laney's husband, before the accident, and he struggles with what the "Christian thing to do" is, and instead of turning away from God in hardship, he finds his fledgling faith growing.He is hardworking, and changes a lot oer the course of the book,
Laney has been through a lot but she is determined to keep the ranch going like Brody would have wanted her to, and ever so slowly she begins to admire and respect the man that Slade ha become.
Overall, a well written western romance, sure to warm the heart, and put a smile on your face. I really like how Slade and Laney's relationship grew out of grudging friendship, and how they bot grow ad come to depend on each other. Definitely a great book for those who like cowboys in their romances :)
