Publisher's Summary

The sixth book in the number-one best-selling Three Rivers Ranch Romance series, Eight Second Ride takes you beyond the ranch...to the rodeo.

Ethan Greene wants no part of the rodeo circuit he left six years ago. Instead, he's spent the last year reinventing himself, trying to become a man he can be proud of. But when feisty, champion barrel racer, Brynn Bowman, shows up at Three Rivers Ranch to recruit him to be the second part of a two-man roping team, Ethan finds himself saying yes - but only for one year, just to help out a friend.

Brynn's been riding horses since childhood, but she has a secret; she really wants to quit the rodeo circuit. Under pressure from her father and brother, Brynn keeps her desires to herself and promises she'll win the World Championship.

Brynn feels drawn to Ethan, though the two come from opposite ends of the universe. She wonders if she can trust him with her secret. Ethan, thinking Brynn to enjoy her career in rodeo, considers joining the circuit permanently. Can they find common ground upon which to build their relationship?

Love is better than winning the Rodeo

*I received this audiobook in exchange for my honest review* Story: 5 stars Ethan has a good life as a cowhand at Three Rivers Ranch, but is terribly lonely. Along comes the beautiful Brynn to try to talk him into rejoining as a favor to a mutual friend, Tanner. Ethan is trying to reinvent himself as a better man, NOT the man he was the first time he was a roper/bull rider. But God tells him he can be happy following this path and so he leaves. Brynn feels like the only reason she is a champion barrel racer is to please her father and is disillusioned about the rodeo and cowboys, in particular. She is ready to put aside her rule not to date cowboys, though, when she meets Ethan. An interesting switch takes place during the story and I felt invested in what these two would do and how they would work things out. Narration: 4.5 stars Ms. Doughty is such a good narrator! I love listening to her voice! The cadence, the accent, the expression...she is easy to listen to over an over! *poor, **ok, ***good, ****very good, *****something special

A must to listen to

Such a feel good story with several twists & turns thrown in. Wouldn’t be a great story withhout the, Liz Isaacson delivers another dynamic story and Becky Doughty does a phenomenal job bringing the characters to life.

Rodeo versus romance

A sweet and charming cowboy/cowgirl love story. Some family issues. A change of venue from Three Rivers Ranch. So nice to catch up with the familiar couples there even a little. I haven't listened to the books in order, but that certainly hasn't distracted from my enjoyment. I am eager to read or listen to more. Thanks to the author for providing a copy. My review is voluntary.

Beautiful story

I've REALLY enjoyed this series, loving the way the narrator's performance brings the stories to life, be it for a financially successful (sports) couple finding their way to their happily ever after, or as in the previous story, a couple that's barely making it on their 2 small full-time incomes. I learned a thing or two about 8-seconds in the rodeo (Ethan) and women's barrel racing (Brynn), neither of which are well-known in Germany. I had previously (6/17) written a glowing review but for some reason it's not showing up.

Great clean story

I really enjoyed listening to Eight Second Ride. This is the story about Ethan and Byann. I love this whole series, but I think I liked this one the best, so far. This story has some ups and downs, and some misuderstandings. I highly recommend for everyone.

Wonderful installment in a great series

I loved this story, even though it doesn't have too much to do with the ranch, it still was fun to see some familiar friends. A great story and fresh take! Grab it and enjoy!!

Rodeo Drew Them

The love of the rodeo circuit, is clearly shown in this story. It is the sixth in the THREE RIVER RANCH series, and hopefully not the last. They can be read separately, but the whole series is great. We meet Brynn, a barrel racer, still doing it, for her dad. She wants to retire, dates now and then. Dated a few times with Tanner, and when he wants her to convince and old friend to join the rodeo. She comes wearing old clothes, so much for following orders. Sparks flies, between her and Ethan, and surprises all, when he agrees. To be part of the two man roping team for a year. The love of the rodeo, love between Brynn and Ethan, this is another winner for Liz Isaacson. Given ARC for my honest opinion, of which I have given

Sweet & hopeful (clean not steamy)

Love, love, love the Three Rivers ranch series. Having the books come out on audiobook is even better. Enjoy reading about/listening to the interconnected events in the lives of characters you quickly begin to care about. Good people trying to do the right thing. Highly recommended if you enjoy character-driven romance without gratuitous scenes.

This is my favorite in the series

This book had the right amount of up and down drama to make it really interesting and draw you into the story.
