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?
Eight Second Ride
ARC copy for honest review with no compensation.
This is the second book in the Willow Bay Stables Series about Owen (the brother of London in Change Rein Book 1) and Rayne (the town vet).
Rayne and her daughter Ryley returned to town after Rayne took the vet practice over for her father after he retired and she wanted a small town to raise her daughter. Rayne closed her life off from love a long time ago and not many people know why…..
Rayne takes care of Owen’s horse after it is hurt at a rodeo and is waiting for Owen to come get it after the rodeo season is over. When Owen shows up to get the horse the sparks fly between them but Rayne is determined not to fall for him no matter what. While Owen wants Rayne and her daughter to be his forever and he is willing to do whatever he has to do to make that happen.
There are many twist, turns, angst, laughter, tears and joy that you keep wondering what will happen next. Once you start the book you will not stop til you finish it. Cannot wait for the next book about London and Owen’s sister! !
Anne Jolin has done it again! ! Given us hope when we think there is none for us………
It will only take you about 8 seconds to fall for Owen!
Owen Daniels is a bron busting cowboy. He lives for the rodeo and loves his family. He's close to his younger sisters and his dad. He's had ladies warm his bed but nothing more than that. He thought some things would never change until he met Rayne.
Rayne Brooks doesn't date cowboys. Fate has dealt her a pretty rough hand but being the person she is, she adjusted to it and is doing the best she can. She finds herself at a loss when the handsome, down-to-earth Owen comes back to town. She wants to keep him at a distance but the more she's around him the more her resolve weakens.
Owen is completely swoon-worthy. His nature is calm and commanding all at the same time and his love is fierce. Rayne is admirable in her intentions. She is protective and somewhat hardened by the events in her life. I loved Ryley, too.. She was a scene stealer a few times.
I was intrigued by Owen when he appeared in Change Rein, the first book in the Willow Bay series. It isn't necessary to read the first book to read this one though it does help with some background and character information.
I loved this book from the beginning and found it very easy to read. The writer created a setting which was very easily envisioned. I have read all of this author's works and look forward to the next book.
Eight Second Ride is the second book in the Willow Bay Stables series. The sex is hot and steamy, so definitely 18+. While this book is part of a series, it can be read as a standalone.
The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I'm not going to repeat that info here. The author did a good job of giving depth, thoughts, and emotions to these characters. I got caught up in the story and couldn't put it down. You could really feel the turmoil Rayne was feeling regarding Owen, even if she hadn't told him the truth about why she felt that way. Will Owen stay with the rodeo circuit? Relationships require give and take on both sides. Will Owen and Rayne, along with Ryley, be able to be a family? I look forward to reading the next book in the series.
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
