A heart can live a lifetime in eight seconds.
Ever since his father caught him with another boy and threw him out at the tender age of sixteen, Dustin Lewis has been fighting his way up the national bull-riding rankings. He’s on the brink of qualifying for the National Finals when he draws Diablo, a notoriously rank bull—and the ride goes bad.
When bullfighter Shane Rees frees Dustin from the rigging of the same bull that nearly destroyed his face, he comes dangerously close to dropping his guard. Shane knows the potential consequences of being gay in a sport loaded with testosterone-overdosed cowboys, and the resulting scars of mind and body have left him with little self-worth.
Their near-death-by-bull first meeting sparks an attraction that awakens every last one of their personal demons. Yet as the National Finals draws closer, so do they. But they’ll have to overcome emotional highs, near-tragic lows, and bone-crushing danger before love can bust out of the chute.
Warning: Contains man-on-man boot knocking, rawhide and raw emotions, badass cowboys and even badder-ass bulls. This ain’t your old man’s rodeo.
I love a cowboy story, bull riders especially. Dustin was thrown out of his home by his father when he was found with another boy, Dustin worked hard getting to be top of his profession of bull riding until he gets Diablo and thanks to Shane doesn't get off much worse then he could have. Shane is a scared from being thrown too many times to count riding bulls, he's there for Dustin and as they get closer the Sparks fly but when your around Bullriders who are straight it's hard to let your feelings show. I liked Dustin and Shane's characters, I felt for them both and love how they got closer. Emotional in parts, high energy and action in others, this book was well written with great characters. I don't want to ruin anything by saying to much but it's a great read if you love Rodeos, Cowboys and sweaty men...lol 4 stars
