WOW, I have decided I must be a prude. I have the same issues with this book, that I had with Becky Wade's other book I read. The characteristics portrayed by the characters leave me wondering?? Gambling, carousing, and more. Characteristics and actions I don't enjoy reading about. I do understand the rodeo circuit is a rough scene, but there are also other sides to that scene, I wish Ms Wade had taken that approach. As a series book it can stand alone, there is enough back story provided for that. Ms. Wade has wonderful writing skills, I just haven't enjoyed the character development. 3 stars from this reviewer.

About the book:
Ty Porter has always been irresistible to Celia Park. All through high school---irresistible. When their paths cross again after college---still irresistible. This time, though, Ty seems to feel exactly the same way about Celia. Their whirlwind romance deposits them at a street-corner Las Vegas wedding chapel.
The next morning they wake to a marriage certificate and a dose of cold reality. Celia's ready to be Ty's wife, but Ty's not ready to be her husband. He's a professional bull rider, he lives on the road, and he's long planned to settle down with the hometown girl he's known since childhood.
Five and a half years pass. Celia's buried her dreams so that she can afford to raise her daughter. Ty's achieved all of his goals. Or thought he had, until he looks again into the eyes of the woman he couldn't forget and into the face of the child he never knew he had.
How much will Ty sacrifice to win back Celia's trust and prove to her that their spontaneous marriage can still become the love of a lifetime?
