    Duke McGraw learned the hard way that life can change in the bli

    Duke McGraw learned the hard way that life can change in the blink of an eye. Waking up from a coma, he wants nothing more than to ride back into his life—but nothing is the same, not even Lila Sinclair. With pride the size of Texas, Duke builds a wall of anger. Bent, not broken, he climbs back into the saddle to see where the rocky trail leads him. 
    Lila loves Duke—always had, always will—but the wounds of tragedy run deeper than physical. Confused by Duke’s emotional barriers, Lila is at the end of her rope but refuses to lose hope. Tough and determined, Lila’s out to lasso her cowboy. But will her nurturing heart be broken again? A man like Duke comes with risks. When playing with fire someone is bound to get scorched. 
    Some flames never die, and Duke and Lila’s connection is hotter than hell. Temperatures rise on the ranch and horses aren’t the only thing being ridden. When the future is at stake, choices must be made. Beyond the scars and tragedy, will love rise again or will the second chance be the last

    This book is definitely a 5 star book. I can't remember the last time I sat down and was able to finish a book completely in a matter of a few hours.
    Duke's character was very rough around the edges and to be completely honest with you, who wouldn't be after 1. being a cowboy, 2. he's been in a coma for 18 months and 3. he wakes up from that coma thinking that his life around him has changed. 
    When he wakes up, he can't use his body like he used to, he thinks the woman he loves is engaged, plus the scars from the accident. He's darn right pissed and rightly so. Now the question is, can he get through all of these obstacles to come back to the woman he loves

    Lila is a very loving and caring person. She stands by his side while Duke is in a coma. Visiting with him, hoping that he will wake up. On her last visit, she thought she was saying goodbye to the one that she loves, but received the wake up call. 

    Then we have Dr. Lucas who wants to marry Lila, but she is not sure she shares the same feelings. 

    When Duke wakes up, he doesn't feel that things can ever go back the way that it used to. He feels his relationship with Lila is over. Then he finds out he's a Daddy. 

    Once Duke is ready to be discharged from the hospital, Lila is ready to take on the responsibility of caring for Duke while he recovers, and gets his strength back because of her love for him. 

    Once he is stronger he gets back out on the ranch, leaving before dawn and coming home at sundown. 
    Their communication isn't exactly the best. They both bicker all the time, they both love each other, but are to stubborn to admit it . especially Duke. 

    This book is a great read, was well written, great format, I really didn't feel the romance, but it was there along with some steamy sex. 

    I will be happy to read current and future books from this author.
