Tragedy had Coleman Garrison fleeing to the rodeo at the tender age of 17. Years of dedication and an I don’t give a f*ck attitude turned him into a champion. Then tragedy changed the course of his life once more.
Buying a ranch on the outskirts of a small town, he planned to spend the rest of his days training horses, removed from society and the temptation of letting anyone close.
And then he saw her.
Tired of substitute teaching and unable to afford to move from her parents home, Abigail O’Neal jumped at the chance to start a new life away from the big city in the small town of Jasper Falls.
Shy and socially awkward, she wanted the chance to be a different version of herself. But breaking out of her shell turned out to be harder than she thought.
Until she met him.
Who knew Abby’s resemblance to a dead woman would make her the target of someone’s sinister deeds.
Can a hardened cowboy and a shy little mouse beat the odds, preventing tragedy from striking again?

I enjoyed this one. It was sweet with no OW/OM drama. Cole was a likable character that didn’t come across like a man-whore. I LOVED his dirty talking (reminded me of a KA hero) Abby was sweet and thankfully NOT over the top annoying (a problem I had with the heroines in this author’s other books) The stalker storyline wasn’t that strong. It was pretty well advertised from first introduction who it was going to be. Plus it just felt underdeveloped and put in just to add a little angst and drama. Overall though this was an enjoyable way to spend a few hours.
SIDE NOTE: I LOATHE “Little Mouse” as an endearment. It isn’t sweet, it isn’t cute, it isn’t lovable. It’s DEMEANING! Especially when it is used on a person who is shy and has social interaction issues (as did the heroine in this book) Every time Cole uttered it, I wanted Abby to tell him to go shove it up his ass.
