Review: The Bull Rider's Secret

The Bull Rider's Secret (Harlequin American Romance)

About the Book:
Brody Murphy lives one day—one ride—at a time. No home, no responsibility, no one depending on him. As long as the bull rider keeps moving, he can keep it that way. But when Brody meets Ricky Sovo and his mother, rancher Katarina, he finds himself lingering in one place for the first time in years.

Kat's unlike any woman he's ever known—feisty, stubborn and determined to make it on her own. But that independent streak has gotten her in trouble with a couple of local ranch hands. She needs Brody's help. Only, helping means sticking around, and that's not something Brody can do. For Kat makes him want more from life, more than he feels he deserves. She may be his only chance at accepting his past…but he's not sure he can ever stop running from it.

My Comments:
He's running from his past; she's trying to make a future.  She's a woman trying to make it in a man's world; he's a man  looking after a woman who needs help.  She has a son in the throes of first love (and lust).  We know how it ends, right?  

Let's see, what to talk about....well, they are intimate before marriage, and we watch, sort of...I mean that if you are looking for a how-to manual here, you'll only get part way there.  I liked her, but didn't like that she couldn't handle the "man's" job without a man.  I liked him, but think he needs to get his head together more before he is really ready for a relationship.  All in all I'd say a pretty average example of a short romance.  Since the best grade I give this kind of book is a B-, I'm giving this one a C--I've read better, I've read worse.

I'd like to thank the publisher for making a review copy available via NetGalley.
