Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Series: American Extreme Bull Riders Tour #5
Title: Troy by Amy Andrews
Author: Amy Andrews

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.
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?
