Rough and Ready (More Than A Cowboy Book 2) by Vanessa Vale
When a rough-edged bad boy takes on a straight-laced college professor, can they both win the fight of their life?
Reed Johnson grew up on the streets rough and ready with his fists to survive. These days, all his fighting now is done in the ring. With The Outlaw as his coach, he’s way more than a cowboy. That was enough for him, until he meets his new neighbor.
Harper Lane’s running from a dangerous past, but no matter how hard she tries, it follows. This time, she’s not alone. She runs right into the arms of Reed. She’s his now. His to protect. His to save. To do so, he’ll have to return to the life he’s left behind. But the brainy PhD is worth the fight and with her, he’ll be ready for anything. Even something he never thought he deserved. Love.
This book was emotional. And amazing. And kinda hard to read in some parts. Don’t get me wrong, I devoured each page, not wanting to put the book down, but their story was harsh. Harper and Reed both had a past that made me want to weep for them. I’m all over the place with this book. But in the end, their story is full of hope for a life of happiness, even for the most damaged souls.
Harper is a runner. She runs to escape. She runs to forget. But her past is about to catch up with her, and this is something she can’t outrun on her own. Then, at her lowest point, Reed becomes everything she never knew she needed! However, no matter how perfect they seem to be for each other, there was so much standing in their way!
This book was awesome! A roller coaster of up and down emotions, but still plenty of chemistry and an amazing connection between the main characters. I’m absolutely in awe of how great this book was! Definitely one that I will read again!
