Maverick Austin Davis is forced to return home after a ten-year career as a rodeo star. After one too many head injuries, he’s off the circuit and in the horse farming business, something he’s never taken much of a shine to, but now that it’s his late father’s legacy, familial duty calls. How will Maverick find his way after the only dream he ever had for himself is over?

Enter Leighton Elizabeth James, an ugly duckling turned beauty from Maverick’s childhood—his younger sister’s best friend, to be exact, and someone whose heart he stomped all over when she confessed her crush to him ten years back. Now Leighton is back in Maverick’s life, no longer the insecure, love-stricken teen—and Maverick can’t help but take notice. Sparks fly between them, but will Leighton be able to open her heart to the one man who broke it all those years ago?

This may be my first Harper Sloan book, but it definitely won’t be my last. Lost Rider follows two souls that were meant to always be together and their journey finding their way home. Makerick the rodeo king left town as soon as he possibly could. He wanted nothing tying him back home, other than his brother and sister, and if that meant shattering a girl’s hope and dreams then he would have to do it. Even if it hurt like hell to do so. Leighton, heart broken by the crush of her life, decided to make some changes after some life altering events, they may have helped in the time, but never enough to mend her broken heart over the one that got away. But what happens when the one that got away moves back? Can she actually get over the hurtful things that were said? We’re they truly meant to be?

Lost Rider has been one of my favorite audiobooks so far this summer, I know it just started, but it was a good way to start it that’s for sure. I was completely enthralled from the very beginning. I couldn’t wait to get back in my car to listen and I hate driving. I even made my husband listen to it, poor guy. The angst between these two and their love/hate relationship in the beginning was the best! Leighton was one tough chick and if I were Makerick I would’ve been shaking in my cowboy boots. I may not be a fan of country music, but I am most definitely a fan of country boys. My only small grievance with this book was the relationship seemed to move a little too fast for my taste, but I guess when you’ve known and loved the same person over a decade, it doesn’t seem fast. More like a long time coming. Sloan also gets you really excited about what’s going to come up in the next books as well, I can’t wait to see Quinn, Makerick’s sister and Leighton’s best friend get knocked on her butt with love. And then Makerick’s brother, hello, give me that book now please. Sloan has badass men, and tough chicks in this series and that is something I have really come to love when reading a romance. I don’t need a damsel in distress, I need a badass chick just looking for an equal, someone to make her stronger than she already is and Sloan delivered.

For any cowboy lovers, romance cravers, and anyone inbetween, Lost Rider by Harper Sloan is the book for you. Count me in as a forever fan. I’ve already added all Sloan’s books to my already mile long TBR list.
