A sexy cowgirl gives a rugged Texas loner the ride of his life in USA Today bestselling author Tina Leonard’s seductive new series.
Ava Buchanan dreams of a career on the rodeo circuit. Winning a spot on a one-of-a-kind team would be her ticket to the life she’s always wanted. Ava won’t let anyone stand in her way—not even a stubborn cowboy whose slow-molasses smile and red-hot swagger set her senses aflame . . . and whose talents as a trainer could make her a star. Rodeo might be a man’s game, but Ava knows the right woman’s touch can tame the wildest heart.
Trace Carter believes his mayor’s plan to raise the town’s profile has disaster written all over it, and he won’t allow the Hell’s Outlaws Training Center to be dragged into the fiasco. Yet watching Ava’s delectable body on horseback proves too much of a temptation, and his fantasies stray to her riding skills outside the arena. Soon Trace is fighting like hell to rein in his unbridled desire for the petite brunette before it becomes a passion hotter than the Texas sun.

This book is FANTASTIC!!!
This book is FANTASTIC!!!
First of all, I'm guessing two more books will be written in is series, and I would ABSOLUTELY read both of them. This book did not end in a cliffhanger, but it left the door wide open for subsequent books.
The actual STORY was gripping. It was a book I couldn't stop reading because I had to see what happened. I even abandoned my vacuuming to find out what happened to Ava and Trace!
Both Ava and Trace were wonderful characters. Ava is very rational and level-headed, and it's easy to imagine her as a real person.
Trace sure was a red-hot cowboy. His history as a war vet is endearing, and a good part of the story is written from his point of view, which is my favorite to read.
The tension between Trace and Ava is nothing short of delicious. Again, since chunks of the story are told from Trace's point of view, it's adorable to read how he handles it.
The love scenes were VERY hot and sprinkled perfectly throughout the story.
This was an all-around well-written book. I really liked the tone and the dialogue, and I would absolutely read more by Tina!

What happens when Mayor Judy Jasper of Hell, Texas brings to town three women to make up the Hell's Bells a bullfighting team. She wants the Hell's Outlaws to train them. Trace Carter is the so called leader of the Outlaws and wants nothing to do with training women to do a mans job. Ava Buchanan wants to be a bullfighter and she'll do what she has to to make that happen. But all is not what it seems and the Mayor has something up her sleeve. I loved all the characters and secondary players in the book. I enjoyed the book and the story line but it fell short for me.
I do want to read about the other Hell's Outlaws HEA though.
This is my favorite line from the book: "Nothing, absolutely not one thing, is the same without your smile. I'm head over heels in love with you. As I told you, I'm no hero. But I'm a lot closer with you in my life." - Trace Carter
