Tanner Ford was the high school bad boy—smoking, riding his motorcycle and stirring up trouble when the mood hit.  And while he was a hard riding and successful bull rider, he loved something – or rather someone – more than the thrill ride. 

Good girl Lauren Lewis won his heart in high school and no one has come close to what he had with her.  Lauren loved Tanner with all her heart but she had goals, serious career goals.  And her parents played on those goals to pull her and Tanner apart.  One day she just ended it.  Without a word, she broke things off and broke Tanner’s heart.  Her action left Tanner somewhat bitter and he was determined to hate her with a passion. 

And then the inconceivable happened.  A bull didn’t just throw Tanner.  He went after Tanner, almost killing him.  Now, on the road to recovery, he needs not just a good physical therapist, he needs the best because he plans to get back on a bull as soon as he can.  His sister, Mia, finds the best of the best for him.  But the best of the best happens to be on her way to Fiji for a well deserved vacation.  It just so happens the best of the best is none other than the woman Tanner hates beyond words…and who is also the only woman he’s ever loved.  If he wants the best chance of recovery he needs to go to romantic Fiji…alone with the woman who got away. 

I’m not sure how the title ALL NIGHT WITH THE COWBOY played into Soraya Lane’s latest River Ranch story, but I have to say there were a few nights I was up all night reading Tanner and Lauren’s story.  While the trip to Fiji and the events there didn’t seem all the plausible to me, I did enjoy the background on bull riding.  And Lauren is a pretty terrific character.  She’s smart, determined, independent and compassionate.  She’s someone you’d like as a friend. 

I read the book during a particularly hectic time at my day job and while I couldn’t take the time to go to Fiji myself, doing is vicariously with Tanner and Lauren made for a fun read.  ALL NIGHT WITH THE COWBOY is definitely a “get away from it all” read.

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