Trish is a champion barrel racing competitor and that is all she ever wanted but lately she has been feeling a longing for something more.  Could love be what she is missing? She always thought she was happy with what she did in that department.  Trish does not have time for a relationship let alone love. Yet when Jake made an appearance in her life she never forgot him and when fate brings him back into it she must make a choice. Will she try for a happy ever after or will she let it slip through her fingers?

Trish and Jake are good together; they play well off of each other. The sparks are there right from the start and soon that attraction begins to turn into something more.  I enjoyed watching the two work through everything. Jake is a good man and he is more than ready to fight for Trish and what they could have if she would only let herself go. Loving someone does not mean you must give up your dreams and aspirations and Jake fights hard to show Trish just that.  Trish is a strong and independent woman who longs for love but is too afraid to let go but when it comes to Jake it gets harder and harder for Trish to hold out against love.  As the two work through their emotions Trish must also deal with a jealous competitor who is out to ruin her. 

This story mostly revolves around Trish and Jake’s relationship. The jealous competitor is always a threat throughout the story and when that threat finally rears its head it is over quickly. There seemed to be a big build up towards a problem coming with the jealous competitor and when we finally get it the result is very anticlimactic.  However I did enjoy seeing the relationship between Trish and Jake take shape. The love between the two shines through in everything that they do. Their love is strong and cannot be denied.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
