Rowan Harper has traveled the American Extreme Bull Riders tour circuit with her stock-contractor father since she was four years old. She’s seen the best rides and the worst wrecks. And then there’s TJ who impressed her most when he didn’t ride at all.

T.J. Casey walked away from his rightful place in last year’s bull riding finals in order to bury his father. His sponsors are gone, but he’s back to stake his claim. He wants the buckle, sure, but he also wants the woman who treats her bucking bulls like lambs.

Can T.J. really score the championship and the girl? Or will he have to choose between the two..once and for all?

Casey is a story that will take your breath away, there’s no easier or more subtle way to say it.  In a series full of handsome, sexy, rugged cowboys Casey stands out for a few reasons – those would be Casey and Rowan.  This isn’t an expected rodeo cowboy type of story, it’s more about growth, learning exactly who you are, who you could become if brave enough.  It’s about living in one man’s shadow for far too long, and finally having the support, the belief that you can step out on your own, in your own right.  It’s about a son making a different decision from his brothers.  A man willing to go to the wall for what he wants and believes in.  It’s about two people discovering in a series of highs and lows, missteps and a firm standing of how they complete each other’s dreams, reality and lives.  Neither is stronger than the other, they each have their own unique skills.  Put them together and they could accomplish anything they undertake – as long as they believe in themselves.

The temptation to say too much right now is very real, so I’m simply going to conclude with this.  Casey and Rowen have such a unique outlook on life, forged through their separate lives.  They do truly complete each other.  While rocky at some points, they always turn once again to each other.  This story is full of interesting secondary characters, and we’ve met a few before in other stories, other series.  I have to admit that I’m hoping that we’ll see more of one of Casey’s brothers for he so deserves a wake up call about what is truly important in life.  I believe this is a story that will capture your attention, pull on your heart a bit and leave you with a satisfied smile at the ending.

I would definitely recommend Casey or any story in this series to any Romance reader who enjoys a good story, likable and believable characters and a love that shines through the pages quite easily.
