Book Review: 'The Bull Rider’s Keeper' by Lynn Cahoon


I really enjoyed the opening scene to this book! The hero, Jesse walks in on the heroine, Taylor, wearing just her bra and panties and he’s smitten from there on out.
Jesse is a likeable character, and I although I liked Taylor too, when the two come into conflict over the art gallery, I was cheering more for Jesse. The dialogue in this story is natural sounding and I liked the setting too. There’s art, a gallery, bull riding, and of course, the West which I felt Ms. Cahoon did a great job describing.
Although this story is only 98 pages long, it packs a lot of plot. The secondary characters were also well-drawn, and once again for such a short read there are a lot of them but each has his or her own thing to add to the story, and the developing tension between Jesse and Taylor.
Bottom line is although it’s a classic romance plot of two people attracted to one another but in conflict over a common goal, if you’re looking for a quick romance story to read on the deck or by the pool, this might be a good one for you.
