Rodeo Standoff by Susan Sleeman ~ Review

Lucie's Review:

Deputy Tess McKade finds herself trapped in an arena with an angry bull when Braden Hayes comes to her rescue.

Braden is in Lost Creek doing PR for the rodeo, he is a former PBR champion, and he instantly recognizes her as one of the barrel racers even though they have never talked. Tessa and Braden both now work in law enforcement, as she is a deputy and he is a homicide detective.

Tessa works with her family, her father is the sheriff, her brother is an investigator, and her sister works with them too, she doesn't want her family to know how much danger she is in. Tessa is cool in a tense situation and she welcomes Braden's support as they work to unravel who is targeting her and wants her dead.

Tessa and Braden get to know each other while working together on the weekend, Tessa discovers that Braden isn't tha shallow flirt that she had him pegged as. Braden is determined, hardworking, kind, and too charming for his own good.  Braden admires her drive and dedication to see the case out to the end, and is impressed by her knowledge of forensics.

The McKade's welcome Braden to stay with them, and treat him like one of the family, which includes some matchmaking. Tessa and Braden are both believers, but they struggle with trust, a result of pain from the past. As they work together, they learn to trust each other in dangerous circumstances, and wonder if they might be able to give love a chance.

Overall, fantastic. It has a quick hook, lots of action, and great characters. Tessa is a strong resilient woman. Braden is a man of integrity, and is very quick thinking. Fantastic book I couldn't put it down. Full of twists  and turns with a suspenseful ending!
