In Gold Valley, Oregon, forbidden love just might be the sweetest…
Dane Parker traded in his trailer-park roots for glory as a bull rider. But when a serious injury sidelines him for months, it’s the first time he can’t just pull himself up by his bootstraps. The last thing he wants to deal with is sweet family friend Bea treating him like one of her wounded animals—or the unexpected attraction that suddenly flares between them.
Beatrix Leighton has loved Dane for years, while he’s always seen her as another sister. When she enlists his help to start her animal sanctuary, she thinks it will give him purpose. Instead, it brings all the desire she feels for him to the boiling point. Bea’s father taught her early on that love means loss. But could her forbidden crush turn into a love that will last a lifetime?
Unbroken Cowboy is a novel that reminds me why I read Maisey Yates’s books. This novel was hot, sweet, and fast-paced. Reading it was a pleasure. The beginning is funny. The middle was tense filled with explosive bombs that would or could go off any minute. As for the ending, that was perfect.
A young woman who cares for all creatures is treated a bit like a silly girl. All treat her like that except for her long-time crush, Dane Parker. Dane is one hot tough cowboy until he’s injured. He’s still hot but tought to deal with. Dane is dealing with a lot of his family and friends treating him like a piece of class. One bad rodeo ride ended up in the hospital and took his riding dreams away. Dane still falsely hopes to ride again. But deep down he knows that never will be. His father left him and so did his mom. Dane deals with family issues of not feeling like he’s worth something. But that all changes with one woman. Bea.
Bea works part-time at the vet clinic. She is going back to school to be a vet tech. But she’s not expecting to pass. School was tough for her. I really liked this character. She is a complete softie but has a tougher exterior than most think. With determination and a bit of a challenge, Bea can accomplish anything. But when it comes to seducing her crush, that’s where things get wild.
Overall, I loved reading Unbroken Cowboy. A story about healing and love. Believing in oneself was another major theme portrayed here. Family and friends were the other two. I enjoy a good romance with a lot of intensity and emotional factors. This book delivered in all those areas, as well as others. I recommend this novel to all contemporary and western romance readers alike.
