About the Book:
Darlene Panzera continues her heartwarming Western series with a roughed-up cowboy, the feisty girl next door, and the deal that brings them together

If it wasn't for an injury to his leg, Luke Collins would be riding rodeo broncos all day, every day. Until he heals, he's determined to help his family's guest ranch bring in money any way he can. But when a cranky neighbor gets in the way of his goal, Luke turns to the only person he knows can help: the gorgeous, rodeo-barrel-racing spitfire next door.

It's no secret: Sammy Jo's father is a pain in the neck. But if anyone can persuade him, it's her. So when Luke asks for help, Sammy Jo is more than willing to make a deal with the handsome cowboy. The cost? He's gotta get back up on that horse—with Sammy Jo's help, of course.

As teamwork reveals a deeper connection, Luke finds himself falling for the beautiful girl next door. But to win her heart? He'll just have to do whatever it takes.

This is the second book in the Montana Hearts series and Panzera writes another story that made me fall more in love with this series.

Luke returned home injured from a motorcycle accident but still wants to help with his family's ranch. Lately Sammy Jo has been making advances towards him but he doesn't know if he could trust her. When things start happening around the ranch again it brings these two closer together but will there families break them apart?

I highly suggest reading the first book in the series before this one. Normally I would say this could be read a standalone but to get the full effect of the characters and the sabotages that happen well it all starts in book 1.

I enjoyed the guessing game on who was sabotaging the ranch and why. Of course it's more then one person but it was a great entertaining read that will go over into book 3 since their are more mysterious things going on.

As far as the characters I enjoyed each and everyone of them in there own way but I thought some secondary characters didn't need to be mentioned.

As far as the romance between Sammy Jo and Luke well it was good. They have known each other forever, Sammy Jo used to tease and make fun of Luke but when he left for war she began to realize she loved him. Now it's her chance to win him over.

I really liked that these two didn't fall in bed. They started out with simple flirting and sweet kisses. It made this book all that much sweeter to enjoy!

As of right now I can't wait to read the 3rd book in this series in hopes that the people who are arranging the sabotages are finally caught. The next book will be about Luke's sister who is a single mom and I hope she ends up with Ryan's brother.
