Bucked by Jess Bentley
Posted by brriske
I thought I had it all: a new husband, a baby on the way, and a love that was meant to be. At least, everyone kept telling me my life was perfect.
When it all came crashing down, I ran. As far as I could.
Who’d have thought the one thing to save me would be bucking a cowboy called Wrecker?
It’s lonely at the top.
Especially when you come from rock bottom.
I gave up on a love that lasts a lifetime. Gold diggers, fame wh*res, I just took what I was offered.
At least until I met the girl with the sweet curves and the kind eyes. The one who accepted me for who – and what – I am, not for the fame or the money. The one who might give me my second chance.
Or will she run away again?
Bucked is a steamy standalone novel with a HEA ending, a satisfying epilogue, and NO CLIFFHANGERS!
Kanen has never trusted anyone. Growing up being poor and promising his mother that he would be successful, he has never been treated well by anyone unless they knew about his money. When he meets Chastity and falls for her innocence and beauty, has not sure he can fully trust her or himself and just may have to walk away.
Can either of these two set aside their issues to really get to know one another and accept the feelings that are there or will they both walk away from a love that could be?
I liked this short novella, but almost a little too short for my liking. The author had a good basis to the story but I felt at times I was riding a bull and getting flung from one thought of a character to another. The background of the characters was kind of loose and there wasn’t anything of the secondary characters. I felt a little lost at time with who was butting into whose business. The overall story I enjoyed but had some holes. I would give this read three stars.
