The prodigal son is back. Ever since the terrible mistake he made in high school—a mistake that cost his best friend his life—bullfighter Luke Starr has stayed far away from Pecan, Texas, and his family. But with his twin brothers gone on their respective honeymoons, Luke is forced to come back to town to watch over Gramma and the family ranch. And he can’t wait to leave again. Because being home hurts more than being stomped on by a bull—and it’s only a matter of time until he messes up all over again.
Special ed teacher Jess Sadler will do anything for her students—even abandon her comfort zone to convince a reluctant rodeo cowboy to give “horse lessons” to a student she can’t reach. But when feelings for Luke blindside Jess, she knows she’s in trouble. The man in counting down the minutes until he can leave Pecan. Will he take her heart with him when he goes?
Then a little boy goes missing on the family ranch, and Luke must confront the ghosts of his past or lost the future he never dreamed was possible.
Firstly thanks to the publisher for my review copy for an honest review.
This is the third book in this series but could be a stand alone book. We have been hearing about Luke and the mistake he made as a teen but not the full story. This book we find out the exact story and why Luke feels so guilty and can't forgive himself and why he thinks everyone in Pecan blame him. He is back to help his grandmother while his twin brothers are on honeymoon but once home he's out of there. Jess is a special ed teacher with a heart for special need students. She sees that one student has a connection with horses and hopes Luke will agree to give him lessons in hopes it will help reach him.
While helping this child it is helping him also. I love how the story played out. I just wanted to know what was happening. A good story well worth reading.
