IT’S HERE! IT’S LIVE!
From the moment you begin reading, Anne Jolin ropes deep emotions around your heart as you hold your breath through an intense prologue that sets the path for our main heroine, Rayne, aka. Ray.
A single mom to an adorable, spunky girl (Riley), Ray comes home to be the new veterinarian and has sworn off cowboys. Enter sexy and persistent cowboy, Owen Daniels. Rodeo bronco rider is coming back home to check on his leading lady in his life, Remington’s Lady, his injured horse who he left in the care of Ray Brookes, trusted family vet. It just turns out, he wasn’t expecting a woman; a beautiful woman who looked nothing like the old man Ray he remembers. This was Rayne “Ray” Brookes, the daughter.
These two begin a game of cat and mouse. Owen is denied a date but he’s not used to being told no. He likes a challenge. But, ladies, this isn’t some brooding alpha who aggressively tries to get what he wants; nope, this man is all cowboy gentleman and oh, my word, did he make me swoon. He pursued the woman he wanted to get to know. He instantly took a liking to her daughter and their growing friendship was one of the most precious things ever.
I fell in love with these three together.
Then….then, Ray finally had her walls pulled down and she became owned by Owen and it was wonderful!
“Every kiss we shared before was rivaled by this kiss, because with this kiss, he owned me. I was owned by Owen.”
This story has so much heart. You’ll start with a lump in your throat, you’ll laugh at the wonderful antics at the Willow Bay Stables family dinner table, you’ll swoon, you’ll get teary eyed and you’ll find yourself smiling with a happy sign in the end. Another Anne Jolin book that I loved. Her characters suck me in and stay in my heart. I loved reading Ray, Owen, and Riley’s story and I can’t wait for Rhys and Aurora’s next which we get a sneak peek of at the end of this book.
I highly recommend this! Snuggle up with cozy socks, a warm drink in hand and get lost in the Canadian countryside for a bit. Get Owned by Owen! ❤
Owen Daniels lives his life eight seconds at a time. The thrill of anticipation that comes with sitting on twelve hundred pounds of untamed power is unparalleled. The adrenaline rush that floods his system when the chute opens is one of life’s most unique and natural highs.
Ride eight seconds bareback on a bucking bronco—that’s his life.
When Owen’s stock horse, Remington’s Lady, is injured midway through the rodeo circuit, he trailers her back home to Willow Bay, Alberta, to remain in the care of the local vet, Ray Brookes.
Months later, with a truck bed full of buckles, Owen comes home to collect his Lady from the man he trusted to help her recover. Only Ray happens to be short for Rayne, and Rayne happens to be a woman.
And this woman wants nothing to do with a cowboy fresh off the circuit. As far as she’s concerned, he can take his buckles, boots, and spurs right back on out of her life.
Will Rayne keep them from holding on to their eight-second ride? Or will love buck out of the chute in time for a perfect score?
