Another LI romance. Willow is tired of everyone telling her what to do, so she goes to the place where she considers home and decides to raise bucking bulls. The hero, Clint is used to always taking care of everyone, his family, friends, and his twin nephews that have to live with him. Willow is afraid to trust another man after a terrible divorce. Clint just can't let her go after he gives her his heart.
This was a nice one. Willow is hearing impaired, and with years of people treating her like she's disabled is why she acts the way she does. Clint's mother died when he was a child and his father was a drunk and he had to take care of his sister. It was Willow's aunt, who helped them both. I liked that this book wasn't the typical "Sweet" kind of story, not that it was raunchy, it wasn't, but there were real life situations in the book. Willow's hearing problem, and Clint trying to restart his career as a rodeo star, but injuring his arm in the process, and his sister having to go back to serve her country, etc. Willow always had a crush on Clint, but her always being stubborn, standing on her own is a great conflict, and it's always hard for her when she a bit grudgingly accepts his help. Both of them have to bend in order for them to have a fulfilling life together. Good read.
