Momentum (Buckin' Bull Riders #3)
*Submitted for review by publisher*
Genre: Contemporary/Erotic Romance
Marco D’Allesandro has a destiny he wants no part of—running his family’s Italian olive oil empire. Against his family’s wishes, he moves to America to pursue his dream of becoming a professional bull rider and is at the pinnacle of his career, but his family wants him home. Things only get more complicated when he meets Natalie Webster, a blonde-haired, blue-eyed angel who’s got problems of her own.
Their chemistry is explosive from the beginning, and both find themselves in a situation they never thought they would—they’re falling in love. Natalie has had a rough time of it lately, and it’s tempting to let naturally protective Marco take care of her. Both in and out of bed. Marco discovers he relishes the role and wants to keep Natalie close. Really close.
But Natalie’s situation in life and Marco’s continued battle with his family threaten to tear them apart. Neither of them was looking for forever, but might have found their true destiny in each other.
You can never really go wrong with a Cassandra Carr read. I had never read one of her Buckin’ Bull Riders reads however and I wasn’t sure if it was going to be my thing, but I very much enjoyed it. The characters had personality and even the supporting characters leapt of the page without intruding on the main storyline.
I liked how Natalie set out to make amends for the way she felt she treated her father in the past before his death, she is very determined and head strong. The way her mother came searching for her just because she needed money was horrible and Natalie sure showed her that she wasn’t about to be taken for a fool by someone like her.
Marco was admirable for sticking to his guns when it came to protecting Natalie, even when she didn’t want it and didn’t think that she needed it. He had strong values and he stood up for what he wanted, even if it meant being cut-off from his family fortune, Marco went after his dreams and a life he wanted for himself.
Even though this is part of a series, I would say that you could read the books out of order as they stand alone nicely and you aren’t confused or missing any information to affect your understanding of what is going on. I would give this particular installment four and a half stars.
