Hank Blaze
Eight Seconds... That’s all it took to win my spot on the pro rodeo circuit. The dream was mine, and I was taking it. Only problem: chasing my dream meant leaving home and Cass Wyatt behind. I left her with a promise and my heart. Turns out the dream needed more than eight seconds to keep going—it took all my time, leaving me none for anything else.
When a tough break sends me home to Paulson, Montana for some R&R, it’s finally my chance to get back to Cass. But according to her, my months of silence proved my promise wasn’t worth the dust on her boots. Can I win her back before everything is lost?

My Thoughts:

I’m afraid I didn’t really enjoy this story. It just didn’t seem realistic.
Cass has been left heartbroken by Hank when he up and left her 14 months (and change) ago. He left without looking back, he never contacted her or let her know she was no longer required. However, he has returned, and she’s determined to stay strong and keep her distance.
This all changes when his future is snatched away from him, and he realises the error of his ways. However, to me, it just seemed like she was second best, and she was stupid for even contemplating taking him back. I understand love trumps all, but he’d proved to her that he couldn’t really love her to treat her the way he did. If someone loves you, you are their everything.
Cass rolled over and let him stroke her belly way too fast for what he’d done. It gave the story no credit; it lost its sincerity.
I know it was just a short story, with only 48 pages. So, there wasn’t a lot of room to develop the story nor allow Cass the chance to come around more slowly, but I think it would have been better if she could have moved on and met someone more deserving of her!
