Enjoyed this trip back to Blue Thorn Ranch! I felt sorry for Luke at the beginning. I admired Ruby for accepting and sticking by her difficult patient. By the end, I liked how the story turned out. I received an advance eBook from the author. The review is entirely my own. Can't wait for the print version to come out so I can add this book to my library.

Author Allie Pleiter makes her characters come to life in this enjoyable, charming story about overcoming adversity in a small western town. You’ll enjoy watching Ruby become a strong woman in the Lord, while Luke learns that God has a different plan for him as he grows spiritually. The sparring between these two is quite entertaining as you wonder who will come out on top. I really enjoyed this book and recommend it as a clean, entertaining romance. I received a complimentary copy of this book but was not required to leave a review.

Luke is a bull rider and nothing will stop him from getting back on the bull. He has come home to heal and he gets the last person who wants to help him to try and help him. Ruby was left six years ago by her high school sweetheart and now he's back in town and he wants her help. She needs this as boost for her business but will they be able to keep things professional or will he push her for more? I really super enjoyed this book. I loved this fun read. I had a completely love hate relationship with Luke in the beginning I wanted to choke him. Luke and Ruby through out the whole book were determined to fight for what they wanted and to help bring closure to a relationship that needed it. I love this cowboy, small town everyone in your business but everyone loves you no matter what, feel too in this book. I really enjoyed the back in forth but also how important no matter what Ruby held family and God and the center. This is a clean romance and you can't go wrong with this book.

The Bull Rider's Homecoming was my first Allie Pleiter book and even though it's book four in the Blue Thorn Ranch series, I was not lost at all. It can totally standalone. Luke's rather surly after reluctantly coming back home after suffering a bad injury. He's bristly and has a bad temper, but hiding behind that facade are his fears and insecurities. I didn't know what to think about Luke. He's not super likable in the beginning, but I did completely understand his frustration with his current situation. Ruby's a strong woman. I admired her ability to stand up to Luke when he was being a bit of a jerk. They were high school sweethearts until he abruptly left town and left her behind. So, you could say they have a complicated history, but their chemistry was still great. I really liked the whole Buckton clan and am really interested in reading the first three books in this series. I absolutely loved this book! I read it as fast as I could and didn't want to put it down. I was instantly sucked into these character's lives and sad to leave them behind when I finished. I'm definitely going to be checking out Allie Pleiter's other books! I highly recommend this book for anyone who loves swoonworthy romances! I received a complimentary copy of this book and voluntarily reviewed it. All thoughts and comments are my own honest opinion.

Will the drive for fame and fortune ruin his future happiness? Luke Buckton’s plan to return to his hometown of Martins Gap, Texas, is derailed by one fateful ride. The only person he trusts to get him back in shape and ready to ride again is the one person who has the most reason to hate him—Ruby Sheldon. When an injury brings her a new client in the form of the man who broke her heart, Physical Therapist Ruby Sheldon is set on proving she’s over him. Luke always had a special hold on her. But he also left without a backward glance. There are a lot of connecting themes woven throughout The Bull Rider’s Homecoming—family, seeking fame and glory instead of God, healing, love, and letting go of one dream to realize a greater one. And Allie Pleiter handles each one brilliantly while giving readers glimpses into the excitement and danger of Luke’s chosen profession as well as the tension between two people bent on protecting their bruised hearts. The Bull Rider’s Homecoming is an enjoyable and thought-provoking ride.
