The Cowboy's Last Rodeo by Jeannie Watt

Title: The Cowboy's Last Rodeo
Series: The 79th Cooper Mountain Rodeo #4
Author: Jeannie Watt

Publisher: Tule Publishing
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 11, 2018


Shane Marvell‘s
career as a rodeo rider is ending far too soon. He doesn’t have a plan B, so
during his last season, he’s all in, determined to win as much prize money as
possible–even if it means riding injured and taking more risks than he should.

Ella Etxeberri has
always played it safe, so when her life still takes a bad turn despite her
caution, she wonders if if isn’t time to see what she’s been missing. While
researching risk behaviors in rodeo riders, she meets Shane Marvell, a cowboy
who merits additional study of the personal variety.

Just as Ella is
hitting the point to embrace risk, Shane is pulling back. He knows Ella’s
all-in approach is born of curiosity and whim. He’s not what she wants forever,
and perhaps Ella is one risk he can’t allow himself to take.

They stopped at
the door of his trailer, then Shane took the big leap and said, “Do you want to
come inside?”
He saw Ella’s
throat move as she swallowed. “Yes. I would.”
He stepped back
to allow her to enter first, then followed her in, grimacing as his knee did
its best not to cooperate. He set his rigging and his chaps on top of his gear
bag next to the small kitchenette unit, then reached behind him for the door
“I…um…” Ella
smiled nervously. “What’s the deal with your shoulder?”
Not what Shane
had been expecting. “Partial tear of the labrum.”
“Do you tape
“When I have to.
It’s awkward, but the sports guys aren’t at some of the smaller rodeo.” Shane’s
heart beat a little faster as he said, “Want to see?”
Ella sat down on
the bench she’d slept on less than a week ago. “Yes.”
Shane shrugged
out of his protective vest, tossed it on top of the rest of his gear and
unsnapped his shirt. Ella swallowed again, making him wonder if she’d spent
much time with guys in intimate situations.
Or if it was a
matter of her being nervous around him.
He shrugged out of his shirt and stepped closer so she could see the wrap
job he’d done. She got to her feet and inspected the front, then put a light
hand on his shoulder to turn him, so she could see the back, too. “How many
rolls of tape on your elbow?”
“More than one. I
don’t want to hyperextend.”
She ran an exploratory
hand over the thick layers of white athletic tape covering the area from his
bicep to the middle of his forearm. Then she made the mistake of glancing up.
Their gazes locked and it was suddenly very clear to him what needed to be
done. Ella was of the same mind. They leaned closer at the same moment, their
lips meeting. Her hand tightened on his taped forearm as she welcomed his
tongue into her mouth, teased it with her own.
 Ella dropped her hand away from his
arm and smoothed the hair from her forehead as she pulled back. “Just so you
know, I didn’t ask to see the tape job as an excuse to have my way with you.”
 “You can’t imagine how disappointed I am.”
