Series: Willow Bay Stables #2
Genres: Contemporary Romance
— SYNOPSIS —
Owen Daniels lives his life eight seconds at a time. The thrill of anticipation that comes with sitting on twelve hundred pounds of untamed power is unparalleled. The adrenaline rush that floods his system when the chute opens is one of life’s most unique and natural highs.
Ride eight seconds bareback on a bucking bronco—that’s his life.
When Owen’s stock horse, Remington’s Lady, is injured midway through the rodeo circuit, he trailers her back home to Willow Bay, Alberta, to remain in the care of the local vet, Ray Brookes.
Months later, with a truck bed full of buckles, Owen comes home to collect his Lady from the man he trusted to help her recover. Only Ray happens to be short for Rayne, and Rayne happens to be a woman.
And this woman wants nothing to do with a cowboy fresh off the circuit. As far as she’s concerned, he can take his buckles, boots, and spurs right back on out of her life.
Will Rayne keep them from holding on to their eight-second ride? Or will love buck out of the chute in time for a perfect score?

Holy hot alpha cowboy, Batman!!! Owen Daniels is DELICIOUS. He is an alpha with a soft side and to me, that combination is YUH-MEH. I DEVOURED this book!
After meeting Rayne, Owen knew he had to make her his girl, and despite Rayne's efforts, she could not stay away; not that he made it easy. You see, Rayne had a damn good reason as to why she had promised to never date a cowboy, and it was heartbreaking, to be honest. But Owen made it impossible for her to ignore him.
"I ain't just another cowboy, darlin'." He tucked me into his jacket, protecting me as best he could from the rain. "I'm your cowboy, as long as you'll have me."
After finding out Rayne had a little girl, he was shocked, but he sure made up for it. He made sure Rayne knew he was all-in. To me, seeing a man be a good dad is 1000000% swoon-worthy. Okay, so....seeing Owen be a dad to Rayne's little girl.... LAWD, HAVE MERCY!!! I was a goner! Owen Daniels was a KEEPER. He was there not just for Rayne, but for Ryley too. They were a family.
"Fallin' in love with you has been the best ride of my life, darlin'. Ain't eight seconds anywhere on this earth that compare to holdin' you in my arms at night."
Anne Jolin's writing was amazing. She had a way with words that allowed me to feel everything Rayne and Owen felt. I was right their with them on their journey. I felt Rayne's pain and fear. Loving a bronco rider was not easy and Anne portrayed that perfectly. I felt Owen's passion for the rode and his LOVE for Rayne and Ryley. All in all, I must say that this was Anne Jolin's best work to date!! SUPER excited to read the next installment, Rein In! FIVE STARS!

— ABOUT THE AUTHOR: ANNE JOLIN —
I was born and raised in Ladner, a small farm town just outside Vancouver, Canada. I grew up riding horses, shooting guns, and driving in trucks.
I never expected to be an author. A massage therapist? Yes. Take over the family construction company? Yes. But an author? No. Writing was something that snuck up on me and rooted itself into my life. It was beautiful to discover that love, and I’m truly grateful to say I’ve found my passion.
Since I’ve always been a creative person, it feels amazing to harness all of that energy and use it to tell a story I love. I enjoy incorporating bits of my real life into the stories I write. What parts are true? Hah. I’ll never tell—what would be the fun in that?
If I could leave y’all with one thing, it’s that life’s far too short to not live it out loud. Drown in your passions, hold on tight to the things that inspire you, and chase your dreams relentlessly. I can promise you without a doubt that you won’t regret it. I know I don’t.
