I have not read the first book in the Rocky Mountain Riders series, however this did not affect my enjoyment of book 2.

Comeback Cowboy, as the title probably gives away, is a sweet, contemporary second chance romance.

Naoim and Lucas' relationship is beyond complicated. Throw other people - especially in a small town - into the mix and it could be a down right mess.

However Naomi takes them all on head on and holds her head high, for herself and her daughter Gracie - who is just too cute for words. I love that she doesn't ask or want help - but is not so stubborn to reject help that is offered.

I get the small town vibe of this book - I live in a town where if you sneeze, the next day the gossip mill has you on your death bed, so I could completely empathise with how the characters felt.

Whilst the plot of the story is nothing new - good guy, bad luck, loses the girl, wants the girl back - the execution of Comeback Cowboy that kept me anxiously turning each page.

I love the secondary characters in this book, particularly Lucas' brothers, and now can't to see where the series goes next - and I will go back and read the first book!


A yellow Volkswagen Beetle blitzed toward Lucas, picking up speed. Yep, hed know that car anywhere. Naomi.
He watched her draw closer and closer, and just like it always did when Naomi got near, his heart picked up. Would she stop and give him a lift to the ranch? They hadnt exactly been alone since hed come back to Topaz Falls. Shed made sure of that.
As the yellow car sped around the curve, he lifted a hand to flag her down, but the car didnt slow. Maybe she hadnt seen him. Waving his arms, he stepped onto the shoulder
Shit! The car was coming right for him! Adrenaline fired through him and sent him rolling into the ditch just as the cars brakes screeched. The thing skidded and fish tailed, likely taking out half of the tires tread.
Breathing in the scent of burnt rubber, Lucas stared up at the sky. Well, thatd been one hell of a close shave.
The car door opened and out Naomi flew, stumbling down the embankment in her polished red heels, to where he lay on the ground.
God, Lucas. I was so distracted I didnt even see you. Her delicate hands covered her face. My god, I almost hit you. She staggered a few steps.
That got him off the ground. Hey. He hurried over to her, brushing the gravel off his ass. Im fine. Hed been through a hell of a lot worse than a tumble down into a ditch. See. No blood. Im good.
She nodded, but seemed to be on the verge of hyperventilating. Which meant she was in no condition to get behind the wheel of that car.
Why dont I drive you back to the ranch? He slipped an arm around her waist to support her, and he couldnt resist drawing her close to him, closer than shed been in ten long years. She still smelled like carefree summer afternoonsa subtle hint of lemon along with the coconut oil she used to use to soften her hands. That scent, the feel of her leaning into his body, roused a sudden overpowering greed. Hed never hungered as desperately for something as he hungered for her. To turn her fully to him. To feel those breasts he used to kiss so intimately against his own chest again. He knew that body, remembered every curve and bend, every fine detail
Im okay, Naomi whispered, shaking him off. I can walk.
Of course she could. But she did hand him the keys before hurrying to climb into the passengers seat without his assistance.
Lucas folded himself into the drivers seat. All right, then. Were off. He started the engine and backed up, then turned carefully out onto the highway.
He stole a glance at Naomi. Her soft lips twitched as he studied her. It wasnt her full, bright, beautiful smile.
But it was a start.

Sara Richardson grew up chasing adventure in Colorado's rugged mountains. She's climbed to the top of a 14,000 foot peak at midnight, swum through Class IV rapids, completed her wilderness first-aid certification, and spent seven days at a time tromping through the wilderness with a thirty-pound backpack strapped to her shoulders.

Eventually Sara did the responsible thing and got an education in writing and journalism. After a brief stint in the corporate writing world, she stopped ignoring the voices in her head and started writing fiction. Now she uses her experience as a mountain adventure guide to write stories that incorporate adventure with romance. Still indulging her adventurous spirit, Sara lives and plays in Colorado with her saint of a husband and two young sons.
