At the Ford family ranch, getting thrown from a horse is a part of growing up. But one cowboy is still learning the ropes when it comes to falling in love.
Tanner Ford has been riding bulls and busting broncos his entire life. So when he takes a hard spill—and sustains serious injuries—he refuses to believe his rodeo days are behind him. He’s determined to restore his body and revive his career. There’s just one problem: the finest physical therapist in town just happens to be the only woman he’s ever loved.
Lauren Lewis knows she made a huge mistake when she walked away from Tanner. But she was young, ambitious, and focused on her medical career. Now, after all these years, Tanner’s back—and, in spite of his injuries, looking better than she allows herself to admit. She agrees to work on Tanner’s big bruised muscles until he’s back in bull-riding shape again. But how can Lauren resist the smoldering attraction between her and her old flame. . .and find a way to live without him?
All Night with the Cowboy is a super cute second chance romance. All Night with the Cowboy follows the story of Lauren and Tanner. Lauren and Tanner fell in love at a young age and when these two fell, they fell hard. For reasons unbeknownst to Tanner, Lauren called things off. She obliterated his heart and Tanner never got it back. Now faced with an injury that requires physical therapy, he gets a blast from the past that he never expected….One of Lauren’s biggest regrets in life was walking away from Tanner. It’s been 12 years and her heart has never forgotten him. She’s tried to move on, tried to focus on her career and making a name for herself, but Tanner has never been forgotten. Fate has a funny way of giving you what you want when you least expect it. Forced to work together during Tanner’s recovery, these two will quickly learn that their past refuses to stay in the past. Will these two be able to move on and forget the past? Or will life hand them the second chance they’ve desperately needed? There’s only one way to find out….
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. I thought that it was a quick and easy read. Definitely is one that you can finish in just one sitting. I thought the plot of the story was fun. You could tell from the moment you met Tanner and Lauren that the two of them had a lot of unfinished business. The connection and angst was palpable. I really enjoyed watching these two try to navigate their way from the past to the present. The reason Lauren had for letting Tanner go, wasn’t what I was thinking it would be and I felt bad for all the years these two missed together. Yet, I think it’s just what these two needed. They were young and so in love and had so much growing up to do. This was the path they needed to take. They needed to find themselves and do what would make them happy. Sure, this path broke their hearts, but not everyone is lucky enough to get a second chance. And seeing these two learn to forgive and fight for what they want really made their romance all that more enjoyable.
All Night with the Cowboy is a terrific second chance romance that gave me lots of feels and pulled my heart into many directions. I really enjoyed Lauren & Tanner’s story and look forward to checking out more from this author in the future.
