    A random act of generosity leads to romance

    Three and a half stars. Cody Starr has a reputation on the rodeo circuit as a bad boy, tats, drinking, stupid stunts, love 'em and leave 'em. He's the youngest son in a family of businessmen and over-achievers, content to waste his rodeo winnings on booze and gambling. Then one day he takes pity on a struggling waitress in a diner with a sick son and hands over his $65,000 winnings (prize money plus a lucky streak gambling) to help pay for her son's heart operation. When his family ask how he's going to invest his winnings he lies and says he blew it all gambling. Single mom Kelly Reid can't believe the change that Cody's generosity has made to her life and the life of her son Ricky. The two of them have travelled to Marietta to the 79th Copper Mountain rodeo to say thank-you in person, but soon one gossipy old woman creates a media storm about Cody's generosity and suddenly he might not be the no-good, unreliable bad boy that everyone thought he was. Cody's harshest critic is himself - can he see himself the way that Kelly and Ricky do? Can he take a chance on himself? I liked this but I had conflicted feelings about Kelly and Cody. I get that Cody is the youngest son and has never really grown up, even though he has been supporting himself since he was 16 years old, but his constant need to run away got tired. Kelly on the other hand was the romantic stereotype of the perfect single mom, except she dragged her son backwards and forwards on a whim following/ leaving a man and putting him and out of different schools. I think, maybe, I would have liked this better if Cody had had his epiphany earlier because neither of them came out of the last few chapters well (in my opinion). But overall I still enjoyed this, there was more of the rodeo which I appreciated, no point in a series set around a rodeo if there's no bull-riding! I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

    Very enjoyable

    I really enjoyed this story as the Copper Mountain Rodeo continues. Cody Starr has a reputation as a bad boy on the circuit and most think he's nothing but trouble. After what he did for her and her son, Kelly Reid completely disagrees and is determined to change his opinion of himself and prove he's a man worth of all the good life has to offer. These characters definitely found a place in my heart and I loved watching their relationship develop over the course of the book. I highly recommend this one.

    Sweet Cowboy Romance

    I enjoyed reading The Bull Rider's Return and found it an entertaining installment in the series. Cody is a nice guy with a bad boy reputation that he doesn't seem to know how to shake. Kelly is a single mom struggling to keep it together for her son who has serious health issues. Both characters are very likable and I felt like they belonged together and would make each other happy. The only thing I had an issue with is that I found it hard to believe that there were no charities or government services that would help Kelly's son with his potentially fatal condition, but since this is the entire set up to the book, I can accept it and move on. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys contemporary romance. I received an ARC in exchange of my honest review.

    Loved this Story!

    The Bull Rider’s Return is Book number two in the 79th Copper Mountain Rodeo Series by Joan Kirby. This is Cody Starr and Kelly Reid’s story. This story got my attention right away. Cody may not have the best reputation but there was just something that I liked about him from the beginning. His character just makes you want to hug him and let him know that he is important and special. As a mom Kelly was easy to feel a connection to. She is raising her sick son alone. Cody and Kelly’s paths cross and their lives will never be the same. I loved this story! FYI, contains mature content. I reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
