Kenleigh Briggs suffered debilitating depression at the age of twelve after losing both parents in a tragic house fire. Her aunt assumed guardianship and forced Kenleigh to learn how to horseback ride. She soon developed a bond with the horses that helped her work out and deal with her depression.
Seven years later, young Kenleigh is now a sophomore at the University of Texas, San Antonio. During summer break, she arrives at Serenity Falls, a horse ranch devoted to helping children with disabilities learn to ride. She loves watching the kids build the same healing bonds with the horses that she did. She really finds satisfaction in paying it forward.
Wesley Adams, the son of the ranch’s owners, is a professional bull rider who lives in Dallas. With his blond hair, Caribbean blue eyes, and tattooed muscular body, he is the epitome of every woman’s dream. Wesley is good guy, but he harbors a past he's not proud of.
Kenleigh has learned to take life head on. Content with the way her life is going, Kenleigh never expected Wesley. He takes Kenleigh on the ride of her life, but will she accept him faults and all? As Kenleigh and Wesley discover a love like they have never known, will they also discover the best parts of life they are missing?
I have a really bad habit of Not looking at a synopsis of a book, I find that it sometimes is a good thing and sometimes it is a very bad thing. I'm also one of those readers that judges a book by its cover, in which case I probably would not have picked this book up. but honestly I did not see either and had NO idea what I was getting myself into when I read this book, which in this case is a really good thing. From the moment I picked up this book I could not put it down.
Kenleigh is one of those girls that is hard not to love, she is one of those genuine sweet girls with a lot of tragedy in her past but has overcome it girls. Its not hard to see why every character in the book has fallen in love with her, especially not Wes.
Wes is one of those cocky cowboys that honestly has a rocky background but has a very good heart, he is the first guy ever to make Kenleigh's heart flutter and honestly its not hard to see why...HE IS HOT!!
Wes and Kenleigh meet while they are both working on Wes' family farm that holds a summer camp for children with disabilities, from day one they are drawn to one another and the quickly fall into an easy relationship. The begin to open up to one another, and they share the deepest darkest parts of themselves with each other, it really is heartwarming. They quickly fall in love, but with love generally comes some complications, which they work thru....but their biggest problem is what will happen between them at the end of camp, she is in school and he is a professional bull rider.
Wes thinks he knows the answers, he LOVES and wants to spend the rest of his life with Kenleigh but does she feel the same way??? My heart broke at the answer, will she change her mind, is there a happily ever after for these two??
