TLC Book Tours Spotlight + Review + Giveaway: Out Rider by Lindsay McKenna

Out Rider
Jackson Hole, 11
Lindsay McKenna
April 2016


With her return to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, New York Times bestselling author Lindsay McKenna shows how love can find a way out of the darkness…

A fresh start—that’s all Devorah McGuire wants. As a former Marine and current Ranger with the US Forest Service, she’s grown accustomed to keeping others safe. But when the unthinkable happens, she can only hope that a transfer to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, will allow her to put the past behind her for good.

Dev’s mentor at Grand Tetons National Park is fellow canine handler and horseman Sloan Rankin. He shows Dev the spectacular trails, never knowing the terror that stalks her every move. Despite her lingering fear, Dev feels an attraction for Sloan as wild as their surroundings.

With Sloan, Dev can envision a new life—a real home. Unless a vengeful man fresh out of prison succeeds in finishing what he started…

My Thoughts:
The great thing about this series is if you haven't read the previous books you don't have to worry. Always a plus. Yes, you will see characters from the previous stories, but the focus is on Dev and Sloan. 

Like the blurb says, Dev wants a fresh start, and who wouldn't after the ordeal she had been through. Little does she know her past has a vendetta on her and wants her to pay for what she has done. The dude sounds like a real winner. With her past situations with men, she's a bit leery when Sloan comes along to help her. Now Sloan has his own set of baggage. He plans to never marry again after the ordeal he went through with his last marriage. At first I thought it was infidelity, but boy was I wrong. I would never guess what was going on with his ex-wife. Fortunately she doesn't make an appearance in the book, I think that would have been too much drama. 

Anyway, these two kind of sense something special, but don't want to truly acknowledge. The romance between them is a bit slow. It's completely understandable for them to be bit gun shy. Sloan and Dev actually get to know one another well. 

Basically, I liked Out Rider. I thought it was a pretty good story. I did like how these two characters got to know each other. I liked how Lindsay had Dev's past always in the background and watching. It was a little predictable towards the end, but I kind of wish he had an alternate outcome instead the one that had happen. Besides that it was a pretty good read, and it actually had me wanting to checkout the previous books.
