Overview

Sydney Thomas may be the newest Rodeo Queen on the circuit, but she's more than just a pretty face and fabulous horseback rider. If only her new boss could see it! But the frustrating, bossy, drop-dead gorgeous man seems bent on pushing her away every chance he gets.

Scott Chandler learned at an early age that he needed to "cowboy up" and take care of his family. The one time he let his guard down, his heart got trampled, and he's not about to let that happen again. He knows Sydney's type: rodeo queens who hide their manipulative ways behind good looks, tight jeans, and glittery tiaras.

But just as Scott and Sydney are finally realizing there might be more to their fiery relationship than scorching kisses and passionate nights, secrets from their pasts come back to haunt them. Will the cowboy and the Rodeo Queen ever be able to ride off into the sunset together?

This is a great book. I loved reading it... Didn' t want to put it down. Stong plot, a lot of twist and turns to keep it interesting and strong characters. Highly recommend! Well worth the $2.99 for 240+ pages. Looking forward in reading more by this author. Great Job!

Reviewed by Anne Boling for Readers' Favorite Rodeo Queen by author T.J. Kline is a deliciously romantic tale that is sure to make readers' heart beat a little faster as they watch Sydney and Josh’s love blossom. The couple literally ran into each other at the rodeo where Sydney had just been crowned queen. Scott couldn't help notice how attractive she was but he wanted no part of rodeo queens; one had already broken his heart and he wouldn't allow that to happen again. Sydney had her own nightmare to face. After seeing how she could train and handle horses, Sydney was hired to work on the ranch where Scott was part owner; her mere presence keeps Scott's heart racing. When an ex-girlfriend, Liz, with evil intentions arrives, so does a nightmare from Sydney’s past. How far is Liz willing to go to come between Sydney and Scott? Will Sydney survive the nightmare from her past? It is T.J. Kline’s fault that I have been up all night reading. I know reviewers often say they cannot put a book down, but I literally could not. I was so caught up in this story that I read it through to the last page in one sitting. It was fun watching Sydney and Scott spar. I became very frustrated with Scott and his inability to say those three magic words. The writing was superb. T.J. Kline has cleverly created a female lead that will inspire women. Sydney is beautiful, intelligent, self-confident, yet vulnerable. Rodeo Queen is one of those books that draws out the reader's emotions: one moment the reader will be laughing at some of the antics between Sydney and Scott; the next moment brings fear and even tears. All in all, this is a great read. Fans of contemporary romance will not want to miss Rodeo Queen.

This book pulled me in from the very first page, all the way through the last. Sydney is smart, beautiful female lead character, and a talented horse trainer. Her passion and love for horses is truly admirable. As a horse owner, the author instantly pulled me in with her beautifully written knowledge of horses. Scott is a sexy cowboy who finds himself drawn to her, even after trying his hardest to resist her at every turn because of his past experience with Rodeo Queens. Scott and Syney's attraction and chemistry is off the charts! I found myself laughing and swooning over this book well into the morning hours just to reach the ending. Then, I was sad it was over. I can't wait to see if the author continues on with other characters from this book. You will fall in love with this story. It's steamy moments, suspense, secondary characters, make for a well developed plot and excellent read! I highly recommend it!! Alici

I have always been a fan of cowboys; I mean seriously now think about it, what’s not to love?? The men have the muscles, the boots oh and the hats! *swoon* But back to the book at hand! I really enjoyed this book, quite a bit more than I had thought that I would to be honest. The characters were very likeable, and the story flowed extremely well in my opinion. I was completely drawn into the story and I couldn’t put it down once I had started it. The way that Sydney and Scott would go back and forth was very fun to watch their interactions. With this being the first book that I have read from this author, I was very happy with the way she was able to write such a sweet romance. Even with all the drama that was happening, and the way the characters were able to overcome what had happened to them in their past, I completely enjoyed this story. I would recommend this to people who are looking for a new romance to read!

T.J. Kline's Rodeo Queen was a mix of New Adult and Contemporary that I enjoyed! The trope is enemies to lovers and watching the antics of Scott and Sydney as they fall in love had me laughing out loud! There were some suspenseful parts and some heart breaking moments that had me cursing my watery eyeballs, but the author has woven a fantastic love story about two damaged people that overcome their pasts to find happiness. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a sweet romance with a sexy cowboy and a feisty heroine!

RODEO QUEEN by T.J. Kline is a sweet story set in, you guessed it, rodeo land. With cowboys, horses, cattle and all the rhinestones and glitter you can handle, it’s a fun read even after two years. The plot is simple, a young woman wants to prove herself in a man’s world, finding love along the way. Our heroine Sydney proves she’s no slacker despite our hero Scott’s belief that she is. The characters are drawn well with great supporting characters that add much and don’t overpower. It’s a story of the backstage of rodeo with the promoters, stock contractors and the people who plan and run the show, an interesting twist on the rodeo cowboy story. It’s hard to believe it’s T.J. Kline’s first book, it's that good. So if you are looking for a fun story RODEO QUEEN is a good bet.

Sydney just won the Rodeo Queen title and landed a new job.  Scott has a grudge against all ROdeo Queens- whether he has met them or not. When Scott and Sydney meet, sparks fly and not just the good sparks. Between Scott's dislike of Rodeo Queens, his true feelings for Sydney, His brother Derek, his ex-girlfriend Liz and Kurt who has a grudge against Sydney. Lots of things happening in this book that make it seem like a longer book. But that is a good thing. I personally like a longer book, or a book that makes you feel like you are reading a longer book. I loved Scott and Sydney together.
