The Bullriders: Book Three
Aspiring orchestra conductor Marshall is exhausted after months of auditions without a single job offer. Marshall’s friend, Terry, recommends a change of scenery and points Marshall in the direction of a dude ranch run by former bull rider Indigo Santana. Marshall is understandably skeptical, but his friend is convincing, and Marshall needs a break, so he agrees to go.
Indigo captures Marshall’s attention but leaves him confused. Indigo’s confidence is shot after an injury ended his rodeo career, and he walks with a slight limp. He hasn’t been anywhere near a bull since he was hurt, and he’s not the most accommodating host. After all, the only reason he keeps guests is because his family ranch is all but bankrupt.
Marshall’s attraction doesn’t go unanswered, which leaves him with a huge dilemma. He’s torn between the possibility of love, something he’s searched for all his life, and the career he’s worked toward for as long as he can remember, which is miles away. From his side of the fence, Indigo doesn’t see how the ranch could ever be enough.
The Blurb covers what this book is about. Marshall is exhausted and discouraged, and a relaxing week at a dude ranch sounds just like what he needs…BUT who knew it would change his life forever?
Indigo is new to having guests on his family ranch but he will try anything to save his ranch and provide for the people who live there.
The attraction between these two men began at first meeting, but they both knew they belonged in different worlds. They only had one week to be together before they would have to let go and go on with their lives.
Andrew Grey writes a believable love story that pulls you in. I wanted these two sexy men to be together, but I could not see how that could happen without one of them giving up their dream.
Indigo shows Marshall the beauty of the stars and the land. It was touching to see Marshall discover the music inside of himself through the man, and the wonder that surrounded him.
Marshall shows Indigo that he is more than a ex-bullrider, and he helps him find a brother that was long lost to him.
These men were made for each other and the love scenes were just beautiful! I also
loved catching up with Dante and Ryan from, A Wild Ride, the first book from this series.
A Courageous Ride is a wonderful, heartbreaking and a realistically told love story as only Mr. Grey can tell it.
I recommend this series. If you love a good cowboy story as I do, it is a must buy! Please check out Andrew Grey’s other works. I’m sure your library will fill up with his stories as mine has.
