Overview

At Big Chance Dog Rescue, everyone can find a forever home

Marcus Talbott is a soldier through and through, and he's not going to let an injury keep him from his Army unit. Sure, his last mission nearly broke his back, but that's nothing his positive attitude and work ethic can't fix, right? In the meantime, he's got a place on the board at the Big Chance Dog Rescue, and flirting with his friend's sassy sister, Emma, is a welcome distraction.

Emma Stern is barely scraping by while working and caring for her elderly grandfather, but she's running out of options—and hope. The last thing she has time for is Marcus and his flirting, sexy as he might be. But every time Emma thinks she's reached the end of her rope, Marcus is there to lend a hand. Maybe there's more to the handsome playboy after all...

First book that I have read from this author. Second book in the series. It was an ok read for me. Marcus and Emma were a good couple. Good story line. I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley and I am voluntarily leaving an honest review.

Lucky Chance Cowboy was an interesting read. It had endearing characters but, the dogs won my heart. I love reading stories about dogs and especially rescue dogs. Overall, this was a great read and I would recommend it.

Sexy soldiers with loads of heart! With the second book in her Big Chance Dog Rescue series Teri Anne Stanley delights with another wounded soldier finding love in LUCKY CHANCE COWBOY. If you read the first book in the series you will recognize and reconnect with most of the characters quickly. Marcus is an enjoyable character. He is a good guy trying to heal enough from his back injury to get back to active duty with his team. He doesn't want to admit the pain he's truly in on a daily basis, and the distraction of flirting with Emma is too good to pass up. Emma is easy to connect with. She's in over her head trying to take care of her cantankerous grandfather, work at the feed store and find time to help her brother Adam with the dog rescue here and there ... the last thing she has time for is a man. Too bad Marcus seems to get to her more than anyone ever has. I recommend this book and the entire series to anyone who enjoys a heartwarming yet sexy read about former soldier's helping rescue dogs with some romance thrown in as they each stumble across their happily ever after.

This is the second book in the Big Chance Rescue series that centers around a group of army rangers starting a dog rescue providing service dogs for vets. Marcus Talbot was hurt by an IED and is trying to heal enough to go back into the service. He is staying at his fellow Ranger Adam’s ranch and dog rescue. There he meets Adam’s sister, Emma Stern. Emma is a widow who’s husband was emotionally broken from his service in the army. Both of these characters have a lot of issues they have to work through is get to their happily ever after. Both characters were compelling and the plot generally enjoyable. There were several things that kept this from being a five star read. First this is NOT a cowboy story. While it takes place on an old ranch, there is no cowboying going on (yea, I know it’s not a word). Second, the cover art has almost nothing to do with the story (no cowboy and the person on the cover was white and Marcus was African-American). Overall this was an enjoyable read. I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley for my honest review.

A wonderful second book in this series. Marcus Talbott is positive with time and rehab his back injury will heal so that he can rejoin his unit. Emma Stern, Adam’s sister, has survived the tragedy of losing her military husband to PTSD. Although attracted to Marcus, when she realizes that he might be depending on the drugs the doctors prescribed, she just can’t get involved. Adam, founder of the Rescue, relies on Emma to handle some of the rescue operations while she works full time and takes care of their granddad who is suffering from dementia. A heart wrenching, yet uplifting story that deals with the possible end results of military service while offering hope to the veterans who can be helped by trained assistance dogs. Loved this story, the bluntness of granddad’s remarks and hoping for a story for Jake. I received an advance review copy at no cost and without obligation for an honest review. (by paytonpuppy)

This series revolves around a ranch started by an Army veteran with the intend of matching service dogs with vets needing some type of emotional and/or physical support. Having loved book one, I knew this was a must read and it truly was. This story belongs to Emma Stern and Marcus Talbott. Emma, the sister of Adam, founder of the rescue ranch, is also a widow of a veteran that came back ill and addicted to pain killers. She has not recovered from her past and has no desire to get involved with another soldier. Marcus was injured in the same mission that ended Adam’s career, and is at the ranch while he recovers from his injury. He’s determined to get well and go back to war. But fate has a way of changing their lives both personally and career wise. While the characters were complex and likable, the story was engaging and at times heartbreaking. Once again, thanks to this talented author we are reminded the effects of war on the troops. The need to help, not only as a nation but also as individuals these brave men and women who risk their lives for our freedom. Another wonderful story in this series. I was entrusted a copy of this book by Netgalley and Sourcebooks Casablanca. The opinions expressed are solely my own.

Loved this book! The characters were interesting and had a depth that made them feel real and come alive on the pages. Emma is an emotionally scarred widow just trying to survive while surrounded by her husband's memories everywhere she turns. Marcus is an injured Army ranger who is struggling to heal and get back to his unit. Despite all the complications, they can't seem to stay apart. I found myself deeply engrossed in this novel and hated to put it down. I loved the characters and their story, especially how it was set in a vet/dog rescue. The vet/dog program is such an integral part of the story that it almost became a character in its own right. Add in the quirky grandfather other characters, and this book is a winner. If you enjoy the genre, you will love this book.

Veterans helping veterans and rescuing dogs? Yes, please. We met Emma and Marcus in the first book in this series and now we get to learn so much more about both of them. Prickly cactuses both. They try to keep people at arms-length, but with the addition of a few furry friends they realize that prickly doesn’t create meaningful and sometimes when you think you aren’t helping you really are in ways you don’t even begin to know. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this novel.
