Shhh . . . whisper and you might find true love! Abby’s best friend was Bridget. Their families were close, too, and had been throughout their childhood and school days. Most of them still are, six years after the prom to which Abby should have been taken by Bridget’s older brother, Wolf, but he’d not shown up and had gone off to become a rodeo star instead of her date. He’d hardly been home since - but he’s coming back to help celebrate Abby’s Dad’s birthday. Abby went away to train to become a vet but left after a couple of years as she preferred a more non-medical approach and is now making a name for herself as a horse whisperer. Maybe she can use her sills to take Wolf now they’re both older? The chemistry between them is as volatile as ever but should she risk heartbreak yet again? I was going to write my own synopsis but decided it would give too many spoilers away, so restored to the publisher’s version for once. I think mine was too revealing because I really enjoyed this Bliss romance. The characters are great - warts and all. The setting is superb and the author engages the reader into the dilemmas and action so you feel totally immersed and involved in this fantastic romance. Another great book to get lost in and totally enjoy - highly recommended! Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley, too, for letting me read this book in exchange for an honest review.

Abby Macready is a horse whisperer. She's had the hots for her best friends brother, Wolf Olsen, since she was a teenager. Wolf had broken Abby's heart six years ago in high school and after letting her down by doing it again, he'll have to come up with an outrageously romantic grand gesture to ask her for another chance. Will Abby give Wolf a second chance or will that be one too many? Love cowboys and horse whisperers are pretty amazing. This is a heartbreaking, sweet romance with beautiful horses and sexy cowboys. Who doesn't love a groveling cowboy? I really like how there were problems that real families go through and as the children become of age, they are forced to help out financially too. I absolutely LOVE how the characters on the cover resemble the main characters in the story. That doesn't happen very often. Thank you Farrah Taylor for a great read!

The prom bit in last chapter was a bit much...i would have thought it too late for that; a reminder of the humiliation and disappointment that Wolf caused her. No matter reason. First time reading this author.

This is a quick read and a good story line.  However, there is something about men like Wolf that makes me wish the heroine would find someone else for their happily ever after. I loved all the other characters especially Bridget and Abby's mom.  But, I did not like Wolf. For one thing, who would actually name their child "Wolf"? When I read the blurb, I had assumed it was a nickname but sadly, it wasn't. I also felt Wolf never seemed to treat Abby more like a sister than someone he was interested in. There was no flirting or tension leading up to their being together. For me, there was no chemistry. I thought Abby could find someone better. It wasn't like she was in her 40's. It was way too soon for her to be afraid of being alone. She was only in her 20's!  ARC provided by Entangled Publishing in exchange for an honest review.

Abby Macready works with horses. To be specific, she dropped out of vet school to take a more holistic approach to her work. Horses usually respond better to her than to other means, especially when physical, emotional, or psychological damage is suspected. The others in her close-knit hometown often call her the "horse whisperer," and not without derision. Including, at first, Wolf Olsen, rodeo cowboy, known womanizer, older brother of Abby's best friend, and the first one who broke Abby's heart when she was a teenager. Now she's grown up, and Wolf is back in town for a family occasion when he runs into her. He never expected the shy teenage girl to turn into such a stunning, self-possessed woman. Never expected to need her help with his own beloved horse. And never expected to have to mend longtime fences with her before he can admit that he's falling for her. DANCES WITH WOLF by Farrah Taylor, just released this month by Entangled Publishing's Bliss imprint, is a sweet, soft romance between the unlikeliest of characters ... and isn't that what makes the best romance story, when two people who should never be able to make it work somehow make it work? One of the most fascinating aspects of the novel comes from the well-researched and seamlessly portrayed career options espoused by each of the main characters. The behind-the-scenes portrayals of Wolf's work on the rodeo circuit is eye-opening, to say the least, in a contemporary world of corporate types. Abby's work with horses, especially, proves the read worthwhile. Taylor is to be commended for writing eloquently about such an intriguing and, well, different career choice. What intrigues even more is the numerous dimensions of insight "horse whispering" opens up into Abby's character: her heart, her patience, her Native American heritage, her fierce loyalty, her dedication to work, and more. As a sweet romance, you won't find heavy sexual content in DANCES WITH WOLF, but the attraction between Abby and Wolf is evident, regardless. And sometimes, it's refreshing to read a feel-good love story in which the sex doesn't take center-stage. Prepare for an inspirational read. # # # Author: Farrah Taylor Title: DANCES WITH WOLF Publisher: Entangled Publishing (Bliss) ISBN: 978-1-63375-175-0 Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this work from the publisher via Net Galley in exchange for an honest, though not necessarily positive, review.

**I received an ARC for this story in exchange for an honest review** Abby Macready was better at horse talk than talking to people, especially men. Three days ago, Jesse Olsen called her about his new mare. Bridget, Jesse's oldest daughter, was Abby's oldest friend. Jess and his wife Karen, were equally close to Abby's parents. Abby wanted to stay clear of Wolf, the Olsen's son, as he had already hurt her when she was younger. Bridget still held a grudge against Wolf for hurting her best friend. At one time he had been her playmate, her friend, her idle. While she's checking out the new mare in the barn, she runs into him again. Abby is very sensitive to animals and absolutely loves them. She's very loyal, but can't seem to fight her attraction to Wolf. Wolf is a very determined young man. He tries to act rough and tough but really has a good heart. He's a true cowboy and really loves his family even though he's not home very often. I enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anybody that enjoys a little cowboy romance!

I loved this book! Firstly, because I love books with animals, and cowboys and such.  Abby is young but is known as a horse whisperer and Wolf is the one that got away. This was an emotional and wonderful read and I am so glad I was given the chance to read this author.

Such a sweet book.  I loved Abby's character. For such a young woman, she was very strong, independent and knew what she wanted.  I enjoyed her interactions with the horses.  So soothing.  Then there was Wolf.  Hello cowboy!  I was thinking about their situation, how he stood her up years ago and left her.  She believes she has.moved on and I think she has to the point that it is out of sight out of mind.  But as I have experienced in my own life, when that person reenters your life, it can totally mess with your head and heart. I like the way they were both mature about their situation and finally came to terms with their feelings.  And the epilogue was so sweet and heartwarming. I received this book in exchange for an honest review from the publisher.

Great Opposites Attract Story-If you like reading stories of that type, read this, if you dont, still READ THIS.PHENON CHEMISTRY ***A gifted copy was provided by the publisher for an honest review*** A “Dance with Wolf” is a sweet romance that is about not being able to move past “the past” when the past comes back into your life again. Abby is in love with her best friend’s older brother, Wolf. He knew she was in love with him & Wolf knew he broke Abby’s heart many years ago. He had his reasons. Reasons he could not share even with his sister. Abby threw herself into her vet training. She is a smart woman who is determined to make something of herself . Abby’s main love is horses and she has moved back home to start her own business Same time Abby is back in town, Wolf has come back to town as well. Will he have his chance with Abby? Wolf is home off the circuit and he knows after seeing Abby he has to have her. When the truth comes out, will they be able to survive the fallout? Will the peanut gallery stay in the background and not interfere ? You have to read to find out. I will say the epilogue was so sweet and heartwarming. I found myself rooting for them to make a go of their relationship from page 3 of the book. My heart broke for both of them and I love second chance romances and this is a book that is a second chance romance story. I loved this story because it is great to read a story that has a positive outcome and doesn’t dwell on the negative. Kudos to the author for writing such a great story. My rating: 4.2 stars ****

Abby has been in love with Wolf since she was young. When he asked her to the prom, she was over the moon and then he cancelled without an explanation and broke her heart. Many years later, she's moved back home to work as a horse whisperer. Wolf is home from the rodeo for Abby's father's party. He has been in love with Abby for years but knows he's messed up in the past. This was a sweet read. *I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.*

One of my favorite troupes best friend's brother/ sister's best friend. I really loved the characters in this book. What's not to like about Wolf the rodeo cowboy. Abby and Wolf have a second chance after Wolf make probably the most regrettable decision long ago. Problem is can Abby have the courage to trust Wolf to do what's right especially when most everyone is set against them to being together. See if Wolf can woo Abby and prove everyone wrong.

 4.0 out of 5 stars I enjoyed reading this romance, March 10, 2015 By Anna Lenhart This review is from: Dances with Wolf (Entangled Bliss) (Big Sky Love) (Kindle Edition) This was a pleasant read that featured Wolf and Abbi. They were high school friends, and he broke her heart when he canceled their date tot the prom. They grow apart as he left to compete in the rodeo, to support his family and she graduated high school and went to college. Fast forward a few years, Abbi has dropped out of vet school to become a homeopathic horse whisper/therapist who lives at home and Wolf is a rodeo star struggling with injuries and a sick horse. Fate brings them together, and they remember their attraction to each other. Abbi must overcome her past pain to have a future with Wolf. I enjoyed reading this romance, because it was steamy with out being sexual. It feature well written, supporting characters and a realistic plot. I would recommend it to fans of second chance and western romances.

I always enjoy 2nd chances at love. Wolf and Abby practically grew up together since Abby was his sister's best friend. However, Wolf broke Abby's heart and it's been 6 years. Abby has since grown up and moved on choosing to be a horse whisperer. Despite it being 6 years, the Olsens and Abby's parents are still tiptoeing around her when it comes to Wolf. And it seems that Wolf is back in town. An unexpected situation with Bullet, Wolf's horse came up resulted in Wolf seeking Abby's help. As they worked on Bullet, the feelings for each other returned stronger than before. But will Abby risk her heart again? This is my first book by the author and I must say it was an enjoyable read despite the fact that the story was predictable and kinda common. I feel that the Farrah has written well showing the emotions of two people and showing that some love doesn't change despite the time that has gone by. It also talks about forgiveness, working at love and earning the trust of the one you love. The epilogue was just so sweet, heartwarming and couldn't have been more fitting. Many thanks to Netgalley and Entangled Publishing for an advance copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.

Another first read on the list for me is Farrah Taylor’s “Dances With The Wolf” (Big Sky Love Series #2). Rodeo career’s got a very short life span and staying on top of the game is no easy task. Wolf Olsen is back on a break from the rodeo circuit, back to family and back to Abby Macready, the girl he left waiting for him to take her to prom. Leaving veterinarian college behind, Abby Macready is back home with her parents making a name for herself as a horse whisperer, her love of animals running very deep into her soul. As much as she understands animals, her understanding of the opposite sex sure is a puzzle for her. But then again her heart had always belonged to Wolf Olsen. Abby has several questions unanswered and Wolf has answers to them that he’s not ready to give. But as they are thrown together with family gatherings and working with injured animals, the attraction that had sparked years ago burst into fierce passion that both cannot deny. Now all they have to do is put the questions of the past to rest and see if they can make a future with each other. “Dances With Wolf” has a good story line going, though at times it was a tad bit too long. As much as I liked Wolf and Abby, there were times I felt the story was not moving at all. I definitely did not find it boring, yet it was not holding my interest hundred percent. I felt that there was too much of a monologue than action. Given the chance, yes I would definitely read Farrah Taylor again. Considering that she is pretty fresh, I sure hope she only becomes another great writer as she progresses in her writing experience.

Loved this book!! A hot rugged cowboy, a horse whisperer, and an unrequited teenage crush and broken heart all make for a great reunion story that sizzles with chemistry. Wolf Olsen let home suddenly without ever having the chance to let Abby McCready know how he really feels. But all of that was years ago and as his sisters best friend she is off limits! Abby never understood why Wolf left without a goodbye but all that's water under the bridge. Now if her stupid heart would just get on board with the fact that he's not the one for her! This is a great read and I definitely recommend it!

Opposites attract. I have heard that saying many times. Never has it been more true than when describing the characters within this story. I received an ARC of Dances with Wolf by Farrah Taylor for an honest review. Two unique people developing feelings that they aren't sure how to respond to. Do they act on them and destroy a lifelong relationship or do they ignore them and miss out on the love of a lifetime? A cute story about the wonders of love.

Originally posted on my blog: Tangled Up In Books I received a copy of this book, from the publisher, in exchange for an honest review. In no way did this sway either my review or my rating! There were a few things that initially had me instantly wanting to read this book. For starters there's the best friend's older brother trope, which happens to be a personal favorite of mine. Then you add to that fact that said best friend's older brother is a cowboy, a rodeo cowboy in fact. I'm not exactly big on the rodeo part, but sign me up for the cowboy! Plus his name is Wolf. Seriously a cowboy named Wolf! I could already feel the swoons and I hadn't even read a word yet. The last thing that piqued my interest was the fact that Abby was a horse whisperer. Horses have always been one of my all time favorite animals so I figured between rodeos and horse whisperers I'd get my fill of them with this book. Having said all that I have mixed feelings upon finishing. There were things I liked and things I didn't like but I'll start off with the things I liked. Like I said Abby being a horse whisperer had me intrigued. I also liked the fact that people were skeptical about her career choice, even Wolf. It was fun to watch her prove herself and work her magic. The fact that she was so passionate about what she did and the welfare, health and happiness of the horses she worked with and just animals in general was something I admired about her. Even though I'm not really a rodeo person, I feel like the moments we were in Wolf's POV and he was actually competing the description was done really well. I could picture everything perfectly. If you took away the whole cowboy aspect, I would still love Wolf's character. He was very sweet and I loved how much he cared for and took care of his family, even though the responsibility he felt ended up costing him in the past. He may be a bit cocky about his cowboy skills but I actually found that sort of endearing. Plus you gotta love a man who loves animals! One of the biggest things I didn't like was all the puns. They tapered off towards the end, but before that happened I counted at least 5 or 6. And the thing about puns is that generally they are worthy of an eye roll and an exasperating sigh. Which is exactly what I ended up doing every time. I mean one I don't mind, I'll probably even chuckle at it. Two, fine, I can deal with that. But pun after pun just gets old because they're never truly that funny. I had been very excited by the fact that we had the best friend's older brother trope going on here, the only thing is I didn't really feel the romance until the very end. There was no heavy flirtation or really any flirtation at all. It was mostly just them thinking about the fact that they were attracted to one another or the possibilities of what could have been in the past. I felt the friendship, but there wasn't any spark. Things just sort of happened with them and I was left feeling like, "This is it....?" which was sad for me because I really wanted to feel so much more with this book. It was still a very fun and quick read. It may have been lacking in passion in the beginning but the same couldn't be said about the end. The grand gesture that Wolf comes up with to win Abby over at the end was extremely swoon worthy. The cowboy definitely knows how to woo! In the end it was just okay for me but I feel like had there been more passion and sexual tension in the beginning it could have been great. I realize it's a Bliss book so it's all about the sweet romance, but the thing is you can keep things sweet and tame and still ramp up the sexual tension and flirtation. Thanks to Entangled Publishing for the opportunity to read and review this book!
