One woman wants to win a bet. One man wants to become a rodeo champion. One little girl may give them both something even better--from USA Today bestselling author Nancy Naigle.
"A commitment-phobic rodeo star and a divorce with secrets find love in this wholesome romance. . . . As uplifting as it is sweet."--Publishers Weekly
Working at a little shop on Main Street in a small town is exactly the break that executive Merry Anna Foster needs following her divorce. She's made a bet with her ex-husband that she can live on the amount of money she's giving him in alimony. If she can do it, then Kevin will have to stop complaining and leave her alone. But after three months of this new life, will she even want to leave Antler Creek?
Adam Locklear, bull rider and owner of the local feedstore, is having the best year of his rodeo career. He's also a bit distracted by the pretty new neighbor living in his old bunkhouse. But Adam has no time for matters of the heart. He's got his future all mapped out, and that future doesn't involve a woman just yet. It doesn't involve parenting a little girl either. However, Carly Fowler still suddenly leaves five-year-old Zan--the daughter Adam didn't know he had--in his care.
Is it possible that the future holds a life even better than what Merry Anna and Adam had each dreamed of? One that includes both tenderness and even love--not just for each other but for Zan too.

Those of your who follow our reviews regularly, will know that romance is not our thing. But there was something about this book that just grabbed my Mommy’s attention. It might have been all the pink backgrounds, but I strongly suspect the ‘one woman wants to win a bet’ part had a lot to do with this. My Mommy also can’t let a good bet slide.
We were pleasantly surprised with this lovely romance with an inspiring Christian undertone. Although it followed the typical boy meets girl, they soooo don’t plan on falling in love, longing stares and aching bodies plotline – there was so much more to this book. The characters felt as if they could walk out of the page and bump into you at the local market. Real people out there with real human emotions, thoughts and actions. My Mommy says she hates it when romance heroes and heroines tend to be a bit too perfect. Or if the idea of the book is how the other person change them for the better. Reality just doesn’t work like that.
Both Merry Anna and Adam were characters with flaws, insecurities and behavioral problems that many humans out there can easily relate to. My Mommy would never fall for the likes of Adam, but I think the match between him and Merry Anna were quite fitting and even though there were a few misunderstandings and twists, fate still won with a 8 seconds hold out.
This was a sweet and easy read and we will definitely recommend downloading it on your phone and read a chapter or two as you go through your day. We did that and it was a rather perfect day!

I enjoyed this one but felt the ending was rushed.
This sounds lovely and I adore that cover. It looks like such a cozy house!
It was quite lovely yes and the house is almost like an estate I would say? An old manor house with a barn. Very cowboy feel.
I’ve enjoyed Nancy Naigle’s books before (I love her Christmas-themed books) and this one sounds wonderful. Thanks for sharing your review!
This was my first Nancy Naigle, but I did enjoy her writing style and will probably try her books again.
