Please keep in mind, these are our opinions, and books we like to read.

Today I'm sharing my review of Rope A Falling Star.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Only the best stars fall...
Three time bronc-riding champion Tom Colton’s dream of a fourth title ends when he draws Wooden Nickel, a mean little bronc with more twists than a maze. With his heart no longer in rodeo, he figures it’s time to go home to the Triple Star Ranch, the PTSD therapy ranch he and his dad founded to help others with trauma in their pasts. Tom just wants a little time to nurse his hurts and consider his next move.
Amber Hillcrest started out as a Triple Star client and stayed on as a massage therapist. Her dog Nimbus keeps her PTSD in check, but her heart remains bruised. She knows she’s too old and too broken for love, especially with the son of her boss, but he’s hot enough to fill her fantasies for years to come.
Amber tries to keep it professional between them, but Tom proves too irresistible with his big heart and charm. But someone is sabotaging the Triple Star and the neighboring Fantasy Ranch, and an ex-girlfriend keeps coming around, trying to reconnect with Tom. Tom’s hands are full of problems instead of the luscious massage therapist. But when Amber gets kidnapped, Tom will move heaven and earth to get her back and tell her how he truly feels.

REVIEW: * * * * *
Sometimes dreams take us where we never thought to venture. Hunky Tom Colton may not be able to follow the rodeo circuit and win another bronc riding title, but he finds he may have a future at the Triple Star Ranch where his father started a PTSD therapy ranch for those in need. Tom's friendship with Amber Hillcrest, a former PTSD client and now the massage therapist at the ranch, starts to take fruit and with it a chance for a future he hadn't imagined possible.
Amber really likes Tom. However, she fears being ten years his senior and the difficulties she faces each day with her PTSD will ruin any chances for a lasting relationship. As if their budding friendship doesn't already have its challenges, there's someone who seems to be targeting Amber as if they have a grudge against her.
Rope a Falling Star definitely roped this reader right in. I fell in love with Tom and his caring ways. He proved a true match for Amber. I couldn't help but cheer for Amber and her courage to face her fears head on. I especially liked how Ms. Muir took on the issue of PTSD and explained how recovering from PTSD is a process and something that is not cured but dealt with understanding and patience. Amber has a service dog that helps her cope with her PTSD. Makes me want to know more about this service. Rope a Falling Star is Book One in the Triple Star Ranch series. I look forward to reading more adventures at the ranch and falling in love with more of Ms. Muirs' engaging characters.
