Stetson Major and Curtis Traynor are about as opposite as two cowboys can get. Stetson is a rancher, tied to the land he loves in Taos, New Mexico, while Curtis is a rodeo cowboy whose wanderlust never could be tamed. But now Stetson’s momma is dying of Alzheimer’s, and she can't remember that Curtis hasn't been Stetson's boyfriend for a long time. Curtis's absence makes her cry, so Stetson swallows his pride and calls his ex-lover. To Curtis, Stetson is the one who got away, the love of his life. And Momma is his friend, so he’s happy to help out. Yet returning to the ranch stirs up all sorts of feelings that, while buried, never really went away. Still, the rodeo nationals are coming up, and Curtis can’t stay—even if he’s starting to want to, especially to support Stetson when he needs it most. Stetson and Curtis want to find a place where they both fit, to be there to catch each other when they fall. But family, money problems, and the call of the rodeo circuit might end their second-chance romance before it even gets started.
A heartbreaking story about family and a sweet reunion of two men that truly belong together.
I struggled with the beginning of this book. It was a slower start than the author's other books I’ve read. It wasn’t bad, just slow paced while the author knitted all the pieces together for these two men to be reunited. And to start the process of getting their second chance.
Both of these men are wonderful characters. Curtis comes running when he’s asked by his ex all because of the love he still has all the years later for Stetson’s mother. That’s sweet and a kind-hearted gesture to make. Stetson is struggling and it’s easy to see that he’s heartbroken over the condition his mother is in and that he can’t do more for her. Right from the start through action and dialogue the author made it easy to see and love who these men were.
This is one of those books that gives you a range of emotions and I can tell you from previous stories that I’ve read of this author’s that is something she excels at. She gives her guys life and makes that feel alive for the reader.
