Synopsis from Goodreads:

Selah Davis loves her life as a journalist in Seattle (or so she says) but on a rare trip home to Marietta to cover the Copper Mountain Rodeo, she confesses to her best friends over drinks that her one regret in life is not sleeping with her high school boyfriend, Levi Monroe. Into the bar walks Levi, also home for the rodeo. When her friends dare her to proposition him for a one night stand, she’s at first appalled… but the more she thinks about remedying her one regret, the less she can get him and their electric chemistry out of her head. Selah’s always been her parents’ good daughter. Would it hurt just for one night to be a little bit bad?

Levi Monroe is ready to settle back in Marietta and start his own rodeo school teaching others the techniques that have made him a star. He doesn’t want any distractions during his last rodeo where he aims to win All Around Cowboy, but when his high school sweetheart – the one woman he’s never been able to forget – comes along and offers to rewrite their history, it might just be an offer too good to refuse.

My Review:

Johns has a very approachable, easy to follow writing style that draws you to the storyline, and allows for easy immersion into the tale itself. Not only that, but the fairly realistic (if sometimes stereotypical) portrayal of a rodeo weekend in a small town caters to those of us who grew up around the equine industry. Johns doesn’t make up her facts. She may not give an overly in-depth look at the life of a rodeo cowboy, but she gives a quirky and enjoyable portrayal of this one.

The history between the two main characters really made this story. The past hurts and grievances that led to their current insecurities are essential components of who they are. The fact that they were well developed entities in and of themselves made it even better.

This novella had my heart pounding & my emotions in my throat. Johns drew me completely into her world of rodeo and didn’t let go. It was a quick, racy read, perfect for those times you want something light and real.
