Title: Three Weeks with a Bull Rider
One Broken Man…
Cowboy Jace Mills has suffered fewer injuries from bucking bulls than he has from his ex-girlfriend. Following his best friend Tucker’s advice, Jace is convinced it’s time to move on. But with his ex’s tight rein on him, easier said than done.
One Broken Heart…
Tara Jenkins learned a lot in her sports medicine courses, but not how to fix her broken heart. So when her brother Tucker suggests using her skills on the rodeo, it gives her the perfect opportunity to ride off into the sunset—or at least run away.
Three Weeks Together…
Only problem is, Jace and Tara have had a hate-hate relationship for over a decade, putting up with each other for Tucker’s sake. With their long history as frenemies, they know sparks will fly, they just never expect them to flare into scorching passion.

I really have to work more Cat Johnson books onto my to-read pile. With Three Weeks with a Bull Rider she managed to take two characters I cared very little about from the two previous Oklahoma Nights books and give them a romance that I wanted to work out for them.
Let’s be honest here I strongly disliked the childish Tara from Two Times as Hot. It didn’t take me too long to really start enjoying her character this go round though. She’s young and trying to do things on her own, in her own way of independence. Some of her decisions show her age. She is still discovering who she is, she is also getting over what she sees as a huge heartbreak. Diving into her studies while getting far away from the source of her perceived heartache is really a win win. The problem is her lack of transportation.
I can’t say I disliked Jace. I thought he made some really bad decisions in the previous two books. His decisions cost him the possibility of something with Emma. It all turns out for the best in the end though. It makes him finally see that he has to get away from his ex-girlfriend. He may not know exactly how to get her out of his life but he knows how to get away from her, his truck and a series of rodeos. He even has a travel buddy lined up. Tara needs a ride following the same circuit.
I knew I would enjoy this read even going into it with two characters I had little feelings towards. Tara and Jace turned out to be exactly what the other one needed. How they went from constant stinging barbs to fixing each other’s problems then to lovers really worked for this book. Oklahoma Nights is a seriously hot series. Cat writes ridiculously hot cowboys. I never doubted her ability to give her fans a great romantic read.
