Big Chance Cowboy by Teri Anne Stanley

At Big Chance Dog Rescue,
Even humans get a second chance.

After a disastrous mistake disbanded his Army unit, Adam Collins has returned home to Big Chance, Texas. He just wants to sell the family ranch, set up his sister and grandfather with the funds, and then ride off into the sunset.

Lizzie Vanhook has landed back in her hometown, heartbroken and jobless. Adding to her troubles is the unruly stray who's claimed her as his own. Lizzie knows she's in over her head. Enter Adam—not only does he work with dogs, he's also tall, dark, handsome, and the one who got away...

Adam wants nothing to do with other people, much less dogs. But when his old flame asks him to help her train her scruffy dog, he can't say no. As his reluctant heart opens up, the impossible seems possible: a second chance with the woman he's always loved in a place where he, his friends, and the other strays who show up can heal and call home, Big Chance, Texas.

This was a completely unexpected reading treat. I was hooked by the idea of veterans, cowboys, and dogs, but I really didn’t expect such complex, beautifully written characters and a story I couldn’t put down.

Lizzie is a fabulous heroine. Back in her small town, she’s nursing a broken heart and taking care of her family business when she finds herself suddenly saddled with an enormous dog to care for. I love Lizzie’s heart and the way she chases her passions. Adam is an equally wonderful leading man – even if he spends the first half of the story being as miserable as he can and chasing away anyone who tries to get close. His military experiences feel real and raw and when we meet him, PTSD is breaking his spirit. I loved Adam’s journey in this book, and I love the animals who force him to feel again.

Even though this book tackles some tough topics sensitively and thoughtfully, it isn’t a dark or a heavy read. The wonderful dogs in this book keep the story relatively light and the motley mix of oddball characters that congregate on Adam’s ranch kept me smiling. I love Adam and Lizzie’s town and I love the quirky mix of characters. This is a low heat romance with great sexual tension between Adam and Lizzie. I love the little bit of action at the end and I love the way Adam and his friends slowly grow into a sense of purpose on the tumble down ranch.

When Teri Anne Stanley isn’t writing sassy, sexy, love stories from her home, she’s probably doing some sort of arsty-crafsty thing and hanging with Mr. Stanley, her three favorite children, and the dogs. Sometimes she’s masquerading as a day job science geek. She’s definitely not cooking or cleaning. Teri Ann lives near Sugartit, Kentucky (which is between Beaver Lick and Rabbit Hash. Seriously).
