Publisher's Summary

He thought his life was over...

Justin Michaels is not your typical college kid. For one, he's 27 and the other students seem like kids to his jaded eyes. But after suffering a career-ending injury, the former bull rider has to do something to get his life on track.

She's got big plans...

Valri North is only a few credits away from completing her pre-med degree. Her life is consumed by helping care for her big family and trying to keep her grades up. The last thing she needs is a distraction...and the cowboy seated next to her in class is a major one. There's something vulnerable behind the cool exterior he shows the world...

One flat tire, a snowstorm and a disastrous in-class presentation later, and Justin admits he's fallen for the girl. But a failure with his track record is sure to hold her back...isn't he?

Sweet Opposites Attract Romance

Justin is a bad boy former bull rider recovering addict trying to figure out what to do with the rest of his life after a career ending injury and Valeri is a premed student with way too many responsibilities and jobs focused on her education and getting into med school. They are attracted to each other, but he's too jaded and pulls her in and then pushes her away thinking he'll never be good enough for her. There are funny, sweet, and some exasperating moments in their rocky path to romance. I feel the same way Valeri does about public speaking and don't like it when I have to do presentations, although I was never so nervous that I dropped my notes. She has a wonderful large group of siblings, the younger ones she pitches in to help her parents with, and will make a great mom someday.

The narrator, who is also a wonderful author, has a smooth clear accented voice with voice changes and inflections in all the right places.

A Sweet Cowboy Story

Loved this sweet Christmas story. Although I think you could enjoy this fun story any time of the year. I enjoy Lacy Williams stories because I know it will be a fun, sweet romance with no unwanted surprises. I enjoyed the Audible version. It's fun to listen while painting, quilting or crafting.

It’s time to take chances again

Justin is a washed-up bull rider whose last fall was horrendous causing pain, depression and addictions. When he finally dug himself out of his hole he started taking classes at the college. There was the cute girl from the coffee drive thru that he had been flirting with sitting next to him. She was beautiful and pure and had no business making him feel the way he did. This is a fun trope and Lacy Williams does a great job in this relatively short story. So many reasons they shouldn’t/couldn’t be together but the heart says something different.

Enjoyed the love story of this young student

What can I say? I truly, truly like listening to this narrator, Becky Doughty. Her performance makes this sweet clean story a pleasure to listen to. I'll listen again to this Redbud Trails audio novella, having read the entire series and enjoyed it.

Very Good!

This novel had a lot of good moments, a lot of sweet moments; BUT it also had lot of just okay moments and just a sliver of the romance that the title implied. However, even though there were times when it would lull, I never pondered choosing another novel for immediately something would grab my attention again. There was always something slightly spicy or mysterious which would  reel me back in to stick by the side of this author. In the end, though, I'm glad I finished reading this novel.

Wonderful Story

Any additional comments?

This is the story of Justin that we met in a previous book. He had a career ending injury as a bull rider and is trying to figure out what to do with his life. He has met Valri at the coffee drive thru and has a connection but won't act on it. They meet at a night college speech class, sit next to each other and begin to learn about each other through the class. He still fights his attraction to her because he doesn't think he's good enough for her. They have to work through some misconceptions of each other but there is a great ending. I received this book and am reviewing it with my own opinions. I think it's worth the credit.

Justin and Valri!

After an injury ended his career as a bull rider Justin is trying to find a new direction in his life even though he is back home helping out at the family ranch and attending school. Valri is a woman who has a plan for her future but between her multiple jobs, attending college and helping out with her younger siblings she comes a distant second.

The bright spot in their day is their interactions with each other at the coffee shop but it is when they find themselves in the same college class that they get to know each other. These two couldn’t be a better match as they give each other exactly what they didn’t know they needed. I enjoyed the performance of the narrator and thought she did a great job portraying the emotions of the characters.
