Overview

Troy by Amy Andrews



Cocky, young Aussie bull rider Troy Jensen has been busted down to the pro-circuit. He needs wins and points to get him back into the big league and a shot at being crowned champ but an injury forces him off the circuit and into the arms of the woman fate keeps putting in his path.



The first time local Doc Joss Garrity meets Troy, she’s brandishing a lug wrench. The second time, he’s dragging her delinquent teen son home. The third time, he’s in her ER. How he ends up convalescing at her house she’s not quite sure. But it does make it hard to ignore him and their simmering attraction.



As Troy gets to know Joss, he starts to see a life after bull riding for the first time. But can Joss risk her heart on another man who may not come home one day?

An immensely hot romance between a bull fighter and an ER doctor, whose lives and emotions turn into a roll-a-coaster ride upon meeting each other. Seriously, this is a scorching hot, sexy as can be tale between an older woman and a younger man. The sexy times are intense, detailed, and there are several of them, yet they are built cleverly showing how the emotions get involved, hot the walls around Joss Garrity's heart dumble down, and how the young Aussie bull rider Troy Jensen finds a woman who he wants to be intimate with, share his life with, and chance his exit plan for. I was curious about the age difference between Joss and Troy, how it would play out, how Joss's son would mix with the tale, and what kind of importance was put in the few years of age difference. But honestly, Troy turns out to be a mature, kind, considerate man with a solid head on his shoulders, and the age difference is more of a number than an issue. Troy had learned his lessons the hard way, and grown up, matured, maybe faster than most. He is fun, witty, and gorgeous, yet loyal, trustworthy, and reliable. Joss is over-worked, exhausted doctor, widow, and a mother of a teenage son. She is holding onto her walls around her, to her routines, to the mold she has built around herself after her husband died. It feels like the familiar is what holds her together, and the routine is what keeps her safe. Troy challenges everything she has built around herself to keep her safe, and makes her take a look at herself, about her life, and what she wants from the future. The chemistry is amazing, sizzling, between Joss and Troy. But Troy is easy to get along with, everyone likes him and wants to hang around him. He has charisma, and it is backed by an honest character, who makes no apologies for the things he wants out of life. The development of the relationship is mostly mirrored by the development of their physical connection, the sexy times their share. I would have liked that there would have been a little bit deeper mental connection between Joss and Troy, or, that the soulmates connection would have been shown, not just assumed. But regardless, delightful, likable, delicious, fun, entertaining, enjoyable, and most definitely pleasurable story! ~ Four Spoons

ER Dr Joss Garity is a widowed single mom who is living with her father in law after her husbands death. Aussie Bull rider Troy Jensen has been drifting around the U.S. from one event to another filling his downtime celebrating with women. When a dislocated elbow brings them together for a third time Troy finds himself recuperating at Joss's house for a night. The only problem is one night turns to a couple weeks and neither of them can stop thinking about the other. Can Troy settle for one woman and can Joss deal with Troys dangerous profession? I absolutely loved Joss and Troy's story! There was an instant chemistry from the first time they met on the side of the road. I could not put the book down till i finished the last page.

Australian extreme bull rider, Troy seems to be everywhere when it came to Joss. They first met when Joss had a flat tire on the side of the road and Troy stopped to help her. Next, Troy caught Joss’s son trying to steal from his truck and brought him home (not knowing he was Joss’s son at the time). But the time when Troy got hurt in the rodeo and ended up in the ER with Joss as his doctor, they finally got to know each other better. Troy was from out of town and didn’t have anyone to help him while he recovered from his injury, so Joss decided he could stay at her house. That’s when the temptation started. And it just escalated from there. They couldn’t keep their eyes off each other at first. Then they couldn’t keep their hands off each other. But Joss fought her feelings for Troy thinking it wasn’t right because of their age difference and him always being on the road. Troy kept trying to convince her to give in to what she was feeling. A couple times I thought their love story wouldn’t happen. But just when I started to have my doubts, the author surprised me with renewed hope for them. I liked how descriptive the scenes and characters’ backgrounds were. The story was fast paced and kept me glued to the pages. Normally I don’t really get into romance books with an older woman and younger guy. But I heard some good things about this one and needed to see for myself how good the story really was. I have to admit, I was impressed. It is a fantastic love story. And the age difference really wasn’t too drastic. There are also a lot of steamy scenes in this story.

Save a Horse Ride a Cowboy! Yee Ha! “Sweet Baby Cheese” one of my new Favorite sayings, I loved this story and it’s crazy, sweet and loving characters. It’s fun loving, sexy, and seductive but most of the time it’s romance with a heart. 
Troy Jensen is “The Wonder From Down Under”, a famous Bull Rider in the Bull Riding Circuits who had been ranked in the top 10 for the last five years and one big, young, sexy Australian cowboy. After meeting Jocelyn “Joss” Garity on the dark, back roads of Texas, he is taken by this strong, beautiful woman.
Joss Garity at 34 years of age, has not been having a very good five years, with a dead husband, a teenage son who hated her, huge student loan debt and almost astronomical orthodontic bills, sleep deprivation from working her emergency room shift as a doctor and to add to it a flat tire on the back roads at midnight. But when a tall, muscular, cowboy offers her his help and flirts with her, maybe her luck, just might be changing. 
When these two cross paths again and again, is this fate throwing them together? When Troy is hurt and is unable to move on for a few weeks Joss’s father in law invites him to stay on their property. Troy uses their crazy and unfathomable, wholly undeniable chemistry, as well as seduction, to pursue and to entice Joss, to give into temptation. And bad had never felt this damn good before for both of them. But when it’s time to hit the rodeo circuits again will he be able to move on or will his feelings for Joss be all that he needs to settle down? 
This story had my swooning big time. It definitely got me hot, bothered, and stirred up, with laugh out loud moments and all the feels in this fantastic romance. This pulled me in from the beginning and rode away with my heart!

This story has an older woman reluctant to give in to her attraction to a younger man. In  this case the woman is a single Mum, Doctor Joss Garrity, who lives with her recalcitrant and rebellious son, Damien, in the home of her father-in-law, Gus. She’s move there when Damien started getting into bother following the tragic accident which killed his much love father and her husband. She is trying to change the tyre on her car when she first meets the Australian Bull Rider, Troy Jensen. The chemistry is there between them from the very start but she’s determined not to give in to it, no matter how tempted she feels. Fate is, however, determined to push the two together and there are other meetings which result in him staying in her home to convalesce after dislocating his elbow. She’s a widow, 34 years old, with a 15 year old son and believes she’s too old to attract the 27 year old . . . actually, at times, I thought Troy was the more mature of the two! Having said that, when you learn about his childhood and early teens, his attitude to life and living become more understandable. There are plenty of obstacles along the way for this couple but the ending and their future plans make this a great read that I thoroughly enjoyed escaping into. If you enjoy your romances with steamy encounters, reluctant attraction and a younger strong bad boy turned good, you'll love this one! I requested and was given a copy of this book and this is my honest opinion after choosing to read it.

I’ve enjoyed every one of the Extreme Bull Riders books and Troy by Amy Andrews is no exception. Joss is a widow with a fifteen year old son and isn’t particularly looking for romance. When her car breaks down on a country road a young cowboy stops to help her out. There is an instant attraction between Joss and Troy despite the fact he’s seven years her junior. Bringing her son home after catching him in a nefarious position and then later needing her attention in the emergency room, destiny seems to be throwing these two together. Joss is family driven, strong and yet hesitant to take the step that would put her directly in Troy’s path and his bed. She’s lost her husband and has her son to think of so a snap decision to sleep with Troy is not something she can do. Troy is just trying to make his way up the pro circuit and back to the extreme competition. He’s not looking out for how his career will end, he’s just in it for the ride, the comradery and the lifestyle. Joss is an unexpected surprise along the way. I’m usually not a fan of stories with widows but this one worked for me. While Joss’ husband’s death did affect both her and her son and it does come into play some in the story, it was not heavy with angst. This book was fast paced and well written. The steam factor was incredible with a dirty talking but not really vulgar hero making sure the heroine knew exactly what he wanted. I totally need me a Troy!

I truly enjoyed Troy by Amy Andrews, the fifth book in the American Extreme Bull Riders Tour. Troy Jensen is a young bull rider from Australia looking for wins and points in order to return to the big league of bull riders. Doc Joss Garrity has three encounters with the younger Troy before she is willing to admit fate keeps getting the together. The off the charts, sizzling sexual chemistry doesn’t hurt either. However, after losing her husband, she is not sure she can risk loving another man who might not come home one day. I really enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting this book down. Ms. Adams drew me in and did not let go until I read the last page. I recommend this book to other readers and while I for one look forward to the next book in this wonderful series I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book

Troy by Amy Andrews, book #5 in the American Extreme Bull Riders Tour series. A great addition to the series. I'm totally recommend this series be read in order. Each book I've enjoyed the characters and storylines. Looking forward to reading more in this series and more by this author.

Holy Heck this was HAWT! The sexual chemistry between Joss and Troy was intense. I'm pretty sure I blushed in a few spots. I give major props to Amy Andrews for turning up the heat! These two meet for the first time when Troy pulls over and helps Joss change her tire. He hits on her, she declines. She's a 34 year old doctor and single mom. Troy's a 27 year old bull rider. As much as she is drawn to him, she thinks he isn't for her, but fate seems to keep stepping in and bringing these two together. This had the right mix of push/pull that didn't get overwhelming. In fact, some of the push/pull was part of that intense chemistry. This had a serious side to it as well. Joss lost her husband 5 year prior and her 15 yr old son is angry at the world. Troy is the furthest thing from a role model, yet he knows something about being angry and turned out he wasn't so bad of a role model after all. I would highly recommend this, especially if you are a cowboy fan! ARC provided by NetGalley.

Love this series and loved this book – I have been waiting for Troy’s story since the first time he appeared in the serie and knowing he found love and a HEA made my day! Troy is The Thunder From Down Under – An Australian Bull Rider that was bumped down and is working his way back to the top again when he sees Joss on the side of the road with a flat tire. After stopping to help her he suggests, as he usually does, that they hook up later but she flatly turns him down. By the third time they meet it seems Fate has something in mind for the two of them…if they are willing to get to know one another better. Well, there are a few things to overcome before love can flourish and a HEA can be attained but in keeping with such stories, and this series, all comes right in the end and a swoon worthy book it was in deed and indeed. Thank you to NetGalley and Tule Publishing for the ARC – This is my honest review.

Amy Andrews is skilled at coaxing her readers to read between the lines. Her characters are well versed in the art of seduction. Their mouth says no, when the heart is most definitely screaming "Yes!" At first meeting Troy and Joss are laying down some ground rules. I see you is the message that is conveyed loud and clear. The second meeting goes a step toward the "You drive me crazy" category. By the third time, all bets are off. When the heart becomes involved the stakes are high and the heat is on. Troy is a story of second chances in life, in love and at happiness. Hello, proves the most powerful introduction becomes the goodbye will leave a lasting impression.
