Tasty Book Tours Spotlight + Review + Giveaway: Her Lucky Cowboy by Jennifer Ryan

Her Lucky Cowboy
Montana Men # 3
By: Jennifer Ryan  
Releasing August 25, 2015


Champion rodeo rider Dane Bowden is eight seconds from winning under the Vegas lights, one last hurrah before reluctantly returning to his family's Montana ranch. But his bull has other plans. When Dane wakes up, he's sure he's died and gone to heaven . . . because the doctor who comes to his aid is the same girl who saved his life and disappeared years ago.

Bell would do anything for Dane. He's the fantasy that always kept her going. A child genius hidden away by her family, Bell was the secret no one talked about, the girl no one wanted. Despite finding success as a young surgeon, she's still the awkward girl who's never had a boyfriend. So why does Dane, a notorious playboy and sizzling-hot cowboy, insist on taking her on a real date?

Bell is the only woman in Dane's heart. When a rodeo rivalry turns deadly, it's his turn to save Bell's life—because he sure as hell won't lose his guardian angel again.

My Thoughts: 
What an emotional ringer Her Lucky Cowboy happen to be. When I started to read this I didn't expected to be an emotional wrecking ball. Yes, Miley Cyrus Wrecking Ball popped in my head. Rough doesn't begin to describe what I went through as I read through the story. A lot of it stems from Bell's backstory. Oh my, I don't know if we could give an even more tragic backstory. Basically, she's the bastard daughter of Dr. Warwick, who made a mistake when he younger. Too prideful to admit he made one, he decide to hide Bell at his parent's home never look back. While there Bell didn't get a chance to feel love, because she was raised by crazy religious nut job called grandma. Seriously, she was horrible. There were times I wanted to crawl into the story to scream at the grandma and say, "You call yourself a christian. Oh my god you are a horrible person. Do you really think Jesus would be proud of you." Yes, I totally felt that way. I mean grandma would tell 
"Bell every day that she was nothing but a sin, a spawn of evil, something to be hidden away from civilized, God-fearing people. Even her own parents had recognized the evil in her and cast her out."
Heart breaking to see those hateful words. Bell just needed someone to standup for her. Good thing Dane stepped up to the plate. 

Dane is an awesome character. However, he's kind of a manwhore. I mean he had no problem with women chasing him, but when it came to Bell he had to change his game. Of course, when he hears about Bell's past, he really has to up his game. After all Bell has been told most of her life that she was evil and no good, even though she's a doctor. I love how Dane steps up and prove time and time again that he wants to be in Bell's life. It takes him a while to get her to understand. 

Beside Dane chasing Bell, there is trouble a stirring. We see that one his friends is in trouble and he doesn't know how to save her. Another heartbreaking moment. I don't want to go into too much detail about that situation, but it does get a little hairy towards the end. We know there is a happy ending, but getting their is a big challenge. However, I do love this line that was towards the end:

"You have filled up my heart and my life with everything I never knew I was missing until I found you. I'm the lucky one."
Yes, you may melt. Loved this story, but you will need a box of tissue. If you aren't crying at some point Her Lucky Cowboy, you have truly been desensitize. This is story that truly is about overcoming the past and finding a new hope and start. I can't wait for more from this series. There will be more to come with the next lucky bachelors. 

I leave you with my all time favorite quote from the story which made me think of Aqua's Barbie Girl
"He's like a one of those bug zapper lights. He attracts every blonde in a hundred-yard radius," Bell commented.
