Chute Boss (Lost Creek Rodeo Book 2)


WESTERN: As a military vet, Eden Cooper has spent the past five years pouring her heart and soul into Vets 4 Life. When Reid Browning joins the Board of Directors, she isn't sure what to make of him, but she needs all the help she can get. Then a second encounter in Texas changes everything. Spending a month on a ranch is meant to help Eden heal from her time serving in Iraq. Reid admires Eden for her strength and drive, but wants her to be able to lean on him. When an accident forces him to reevaluate his life, the two draw closer together. As each shares past pain and future dreams, Eden recognizes there's a lot more to the handsome cowboy. But with her life in Washington, D.C. and his life in Lost Creek, Texas, can Eden and Reid find a way to happiness?

"Chute Boss" shines with an emotionally-packed romance between a female Army vet and a bareback rodeo cowboy! Eden stands out as a young woman who gave to her country through her military service and continues to work hard for vets afterwards. Reid's cowboy persona is harder to mesh with his D.C. upbringing and Harvard law degree. The medical impact of concussions and the rodeo backdrop add depth to the story. There's a heavy reliance on coincidences to set up the story, but overall "Chute Boss" draws readers in with its strong story line. Although this is book 2 in a series by different authors, it can be read on its own. "Chute Boss" delivers a sweet and touching tale of two wounded souls who discover the powerful healing of love!
