Book three in The Cowboy Way series by NYT and USA Today Bestselling author Becky McGraw.

Heather Morrison wants to become a country music star, and she is not going to let any man get in her way. She'll gladly take their money as a dancer at the Crazy Cowgirl, but has no use for them otherwise. The night she sees her dreams finally coming true, the best night of her life quickly becomes the worst, when a stagehand catches her unaware outside the arena. The last man on earth she wants to save her, moody and judgmental Zack Taylor, her best friend’s brother, a man who once called her too hot to trot, is the one who comes to her rescue.

Zack Taylor has life by the balls. He's at the top of the game as a bullrider, owns a rough stock herd which is his retirement plan, and has a life plan which includes riding two more years, then settling down with a good woman on his own ranch. Those plans go straight to hell when he puts on his white hat for a woman who has caused him nothing but problems as long as he's known her. Not minding his own business costs him a lot, maybe even his career.

When Heather insists on being the one to help him get back on the bull, Zack is leery, but soon sees he has no choice but to accept her help. Being close to her, he realizes there is a lot more than meets the eye where sexy Heather Morrison is concerned, and there could be reasons she appears to be the fastest girl in town. Zack soon wants to know all of her secrets, but could knowing them change his opinion about her? And with that change could helping her become more important to him than his plan, because he wants to keep her in his life for good?

This is the third book in this series however each book is a standalone. In this book you read about how Zack and Heather fall in love. If you have read the other books in this series you have read a little bit about them. This book was heartbreaking at times. I wanted to cry for Heather and everything she went through. Zack was amazing with how he was there for her and helped her through everything. This book has romance, heartbreak, violence, at more. Zack is injured while trying to save Heather from being attacked after her performance at the rodeo. Heather says that Zack can stay with her while he is recovering because after all it’s her fault he was even hurt. At first Zack and Heather are at odds. There is lots of bickering and misunderstandings on both their parts. Zack is quick to judge and Heather is worried about letting anyone close enough to find out the truth about her. They are both fighting their feelings for each other which doesn't make it any easier. Will Heather let Zack in? Will Zack give Heather a chance to show him the real her? I really love this series and this book doesn't disappoint. There were some really hard parts for me to read about Heather and her past. I really felt for her and what she was going through. Zack is quick to judge but once he stops and starts seeing Heather for whom she really is and not the front she puts on he can't help but love her. Heather is an amazingly strong character; she finds a way to survive. It may not be the best way but she survives. She loves Zack almost immediately. She keeps her feelings to herself and is always waiting for the other shoe to drop. How could he really have feelings for her, he could have anyone he wanted. She isn't the type of girl he normally goes for. I couldn't put this book down and can't wait to see if there will be another one in the series. I love the characters in these books. Becky is a fantastic author and I love her books. I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.

4 stars This story will have you wrapped up in the country scene from the beginning.  Heather and Zack were great characters to fall in love with although Zack was a bit hard headed.  The chemistry between the two of them makes the pages sizzle. Heather Morrison is just living a lie.  She has been trying to keep a low profile while pursuing her dream of singing.  She has been fighting her way since she was a teenager.  And man she is a strong woman on the outside but still needs to be loved.  As her dreams become a reality one night, it is shattered.  But here comes cowboy Zack Taylor to save the day as he has been it seems each time she needs saving.  But at what cost? Zack Taylor is on the track to become the best bull rider around.  It has been his dream to win the championship and make it two more years on the circuit before retiring to take over the family farm.  But when his sister asks him to check on Heather after her performance singing at the rodeo, it will change of the course of his future.  But is he ready for the ride of his life? As Heather and Zack try to co-exist, secrets between them start to come unraveled.  Will Heather allow Zack to know the real Heather?  And when the past shows up to find Heather, will Zack be the hero and save her again?  Can these two unlikely foes become each others future or will the secrets and past stop them dead in their tracks? I always enjoy Author Becky McGraw’s way of writing.  She is able to create characters that could be your next door neighbors and a world that you want to be a part of.  I always grab her books on release day.

4 star The story has laughs, secrets, pain, suspense, and heartbreak.  If you have not read the below I would recommend reading those books(s) first Just Shoot Me (Cowboy Way, #1) Cowgirl Crazy (Cowboy Way, #2) This is Heather and Zach’s story. Zach has always thought the worst of Heather.  When he gets injured saving her she jumps up to take care of him. He learns things about her he never knew.  He wants her but keeps putting her down with his comments.  When she asks him to leave he returns home.  She gets into a bit of trouble but never calls him.  When he finds out can he convince her he can help and wants her forever?  Or will she turn him away? I loved these characters and also the side characters. There was a lot of back and forth between the two of them. But all in all I felt I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read.  I recommend this book.

Becky McGraws cowboys never disappoint, and Zack Taylor is no exception. He is sexy as sin, protective, possessive, and did I say sexy? He is a champion bullrider at the top of his game and has his future all mapped out, or he feels that is it. Ok, so I guess you are wondering what is wrong with him? Other than being very, very quick to judge other people, and speaking before he thinks, absolutely nothing! His sisters best friend, Heather is singing at the rodeo. When Zack finds a man trying to hurt her, he thinks nothing of coming to her rescue, even though he thinks Heather is trouble with a capital T. What happens between him and Heather's attacker could possibly cause him to have to decide on a new path in his life. Although he is jealous of her relationship with BOB, and wonders why she chose the path in life that she did, Zack cannot help being attracted to Heather, or wanting to protect her from everything life throws her way. This book made me laugh, and it made me shed a few tears, because truly Heather chose the only path in her life that she could. Zack learns a valuable lesson in not being so quick to judge. When he gives of himself, to allow Heather to do something that she would not have done otherwise, it becomes the hardest thing he has ever had to do.  If you love hot cowboy romance then you will not want to miss this great addition to the Cowboy Way series, it really is a must read!!

Beautiful Bullrider This was a hilarious and great read from beginning to end. One thing that Becky can do is write a hot cowboy and the sassy but fierce heroine who tames him. Zach is at the top of his game in bullriding and has a game plan for after he retires in two years after saving up enough money. Heather who has had a devastating childhood but did what it takes to survive is having the best night of her life. Unfortunately one wrong encounter leads to changes that neither is expecting. Deciding to look after Zach when he's injured saving her a connection grows between the pair, and an intense chemistry burns brighter. Before you know it, Zach and Heather's sarcastic and humorous banter turns into something so much more intense, raw, and steamy. These characters can take what they can dish out. The back and forth, the love/hate relationship that these two had, kept a smile on my face the whole way through. Compelling, sexy, and intriguing, TOO HOT TO TROT is a must read you will not be able to put it down.
