Synopsis:

No, prima donna ballerina Jessica Carmichael isn’t interested in the rough-and-tumble rodeo cowboy she met in physical therapy. In fact, she’s actively uninterested in his cocky smile, and his go-with-the-flow attitude, and how his silly little bets make her work harder than ever to fix her knee. She’d like nothing more than to strangle him, if she wasn’t so busy thinking about kissing him.

Matt Walker’s best hope of getting back in the saddle is charming Jessica into teaching him ballet. He needs to get back on the bronc…even if he has to get there in tights. Only the uptight ballerina lives in a completely different world, one he wouldn’t touch with a ten-foot mechanical bull. But maybe the one thing she needs more than control is to lose control for once—with him.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was my first book by Robert Tate Miller. I enjoyed it and would like to read more from this author. I describe this book as a low angst, clean romance. The story was entertaining and the characters were fun and witty, with the exception of Jessica, one of the protagonists. Jessica was not the friendliest. I would describe her as standoffish and pretentious. She is a ballerina brought up in a wealthy household so this has shaped her character. I was not her biggest fan for most of the book however, I appreciated how her character grew and developed into someone I could like as the story moved forward.

Matt was fun and witty, if not stubborn, from the beginning. While he was the complete opposite of Jessica in personality, they had good chemistry and I enjoyed watching their relationship develop. If I’m honest, which I am, Matt was the true hero of the book. It was Matt that helped me to enjoy this story. As I mentioned earlier, Jessica was not very personable as well as difficult to like. But by the end my opinion changed.

Briefly, I’ll tell you that both Matt and Jessica injured themselves doing what they each loved. Both ended up with similar knee injuries and at the same rehabilitation center. It was here they first meet. I won’t go into details because you should experience their relationship without any spoilers from me. While their friendship started off slowly, I enjoyed watching them together. Each had something to teach the other and this helped grow appreciation for their respective careers and what shaped them to be the people they are.

There were times, I wondered how Matt and Jessica would work in the end. They both had completely different personalities; completely different lives. In addition, they lived 2,000 miles from each other. Thankfully, though, they did work it out in the sweetest happily-ever-after.

As I understand it, this trope was new to this author. I want to say, I think he did a great job and I would love to read more, especially regarding cowboys. 😉

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂
