ROUGH ROAD HOME
Rachel Hill, a burned out stockbroker, realizes she’s sacrificed too much for her career and is searching for God’s direction in her life. Champion bull rider, Nick Davidson, reasons God abandoned him first, so what’s the point of seeking Christ’s will in his life? When Nick suffers a concussion, the road trip to the next rodeo becomes the ride of a lifetime for Rachel and Nick. Secrets revealed; lies exposed. Can the power of love heal even these deepest wounds?
Take one brash (and injured) cowboy, add one burnt out stockbroker, put them in the cab of a pickup truck and send them on a road trip with a few catastrophes thrown in for good measure and what do you get? The perfect recipe for an amazingly funny, feisty, feel-good crazy kind of read. I LOVE Rough Road Home!
Have to admit to being partial for a good stick-foot-in-mouth first meet -- especially when it's at the expense of the hero. And this one is a doozy. Nick just keeps chomping on that foot making the first time he meets Rachel one gigantic comedic mess. When she's finally had enough she neatly puts him in his place: "Forgive me, I forgot I was talking to a bull rider who couldn't tell the difference between a come-on and a come-along if it jumped up and bit him in the seat of his Wranglers."
Nick is truly swoonworthy -- in that macho, know-it-all, ornery, proud, COWBOY kind of way. We'll give him some grace since he's just been bested by a crazy bull and is worse for wear and stupefied on painkillers. Snort. There are so many great lines in this book, I could quote the whole thing.
Rachel isn't about to let Nick cow her. She maintains that bull riders have mush for brains. No two people are less suited for each other than Rachel and Nick. Let the games begin!
She's just spent some time getting her priorities straight, including her faith. He's given up on God and doesn't set much stock in hope and trust either. They both have gross misconceptions about the other based on erroneous snap decisions which leads them to constantly leap to wrong conclusions. The result? Snappy dialogue that zips this story along at such a fun pace.
A touching, funny captivating read.
