Synopsis from Goodreads:

Pickup man Bridge Sullivan is the kind of cowboy everyone wants—as a brother, a friend, a lover. People think he’s straight, but Bridge isn’t one for labels, and when a sexy male paramedic jumpstarts his heart, he charges in with all guns blazing.

New York City transplant Eric Palmer grew up in foster care. While he always had a roof over his head, he never felt love or a sense of belonging . . . until he joined the California rodeo circuit as a paramedic and found a band of brothers who took him in as one of their own. Now, one in particular is making Eric’s pulse race.

When things heat up between Bridge and Eric, Bridge has to prove to Eric he’s not just experimenting with the rougher sex, while Eric must overcome his fears of being unwanted and cast aside. He knows that trusting Bridge may be the key to his happy ever after, but getting in the saddle is much, much easier than learning to let it ride.

Adult-content rating: This book contains content considered unsuitable for young readers 17 and under, and which may be offensive to some readers of all ages.

My Review:

This story is vivid and exciting. The author captured my heart and my imagination. Chase’s writing is straight forward and approachable while remaining entertaining and enticing. I thoroughly enjoyed how real everything was. Readers can easily picture the rodeo & the ranch. I was inescapably drawn into this story. Not only was it well developed and well written, but it was wrapped up with an extremely captivating storyline. Chase shows both the upside & the downside of her story and of human nature. Being the 2nd novel in the series, Chase does a brilliant job of giving just enough background information that new readers won’t feel lost without boring readers returning to the series.

The characters in this story were as unique and captivating as the storyline itself. I couldn’t help but fall in love with them individually and as a group. The main characters were quite well developed. I appreciated getting to know them, and that their development was in no way superficial. Their hopes and fears shape this story like no other.

As a whole this was a brilliant read. It was an approachable, enjoyable quick story that kept me coming back for more. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone who enjoys a sweet m/m romance with all the trappings.
