Now the new owner of the Turner Grain Corporation, Cole Reardon has one thing on his mind. That is to break the sponsorship the company offers to bull rider, Florentine McDougal as he doesn't understand in people who take unnecessary risks with their lives.

All Florentine McDougal wants out of life is to help young girls reach their dreams, and if getting on the back of a bull and winning her way to the top is the only way to do it then she'll do whatever it takes. Yet when the company that sponsors her wants to break the contract, she refuses to give up.

I love a good romance with a cowboy and a strong heroine and this one didn't disappoint. The plot was well-written, and completely entertaining in the way that Florentine wouldn't give in to Cole wanting to break the contract. The dialogue was great, especially between Cole and Florentine because both were so stubborn in getting their own way. And as for the secondary characters as a reader, the dialogue revealed how much love there was between Florentine and her sisters after everything that they'd been through since losing their dad. The sex scenes were hot, and I liked how they showed how creative the two main characters were in finding a place to be alone for their first time together. What I liked so much about Florentine was her stubbornness, and that no matter what Cole said about her career is that she kept getting back on the bull and proving to everyone that dreams do happen. While with Cole, I liked that he finally accepted Florentine's choices on why she wanted to get on the back of a bull once she told him why.

Overall, Ms. Kayn has done an extremely brilliant job of penning in novel which I will read again many times because this book proves that love can blossom when you least expect it.
