Blurb: As a teenager, Dalton Jakoby made Tank an offer—one Tank turned down gently. It was still embarrassing as hell, so when Tank returns to the Jakoby Rodeo Company after a big-time bull riding tour, Dalton decides polite but distant is the best course of action.
Tank is hurting from some tough injuries and ready for a lighter workload. He’s also ready to admit Dalton is an adult now, one he wants to get to know much better. While Dalton’s past makes him suspicious of Tank’s attention, he can’t stay standoffish for long… not with Tank.
The new romance burns hot, but problems inside and outside the arena threaten what Tank and Dalton might have together.
I LOVED THIS BOOK SO MUCH! I was sucked in right from the start and couldn’t put it down once Dalton and Tank saw each other for the first time after having not seeing each other for a couple of years. I loved that Dalton was still hung up on Tank, even if he didn’t want to admit it, and I loved that Tank was finally able to admit that he’s attracted to Dalton. I really loved the chemistry between them but I especially loved that Tank didn’t confuse Dalton with his twin, Dustin. They were both such endearing characters and I couldn’t get enough of the little side trip they had with just the two of them. I just adored these two soooo much!
I really loved this book but once Dalton and Tank got together, I felt like they had sex more than they should have talked. In fact, because they didn’t talk, it meant Tank felt left out in certain situations and had no idea how to help Dalton when the time came. Add to that, I wish the ending hadn’t been tied up so neatly and quickly, I felt like it could have been a little more dragged out with a bit more dialogue and action.
All in all, I absolutely adored this book. I loved Dalton and Tank as characters but also as a couple. It was interesting to see them get to know each other after so many years. I wished they had talked more, instead of just resorting to sex but, as it was, I had a blast reading this one. I hope there’s a sequel because I really want Dustin’s story!
Overall Impression: I really liked it!
