THE BULL RIDER'S BABY by Brenda Minton

The last thing Keeton West ever expected was his ex-wife to come by and drop off a baby he didn't even know existed. Now what? He can handle riding even the meanest bull but what will he do with a baby? He returns home to Dawson to fix up his old family homestead. It's hard returning with the memories of one tragic night that changed a lot of lives. Especially his and Sophie Cooper's. He wants little Lucy to have a home and family but Keeton needs help. Sophie helps Keeton with Lucy but she's finding her heart is getting involved. Sophie is stubborn and independent. She won't allow her carefully built walls to come down, especially for another bull rider. Keeton finds his feelings for Sophie haven't changed at all. Can Sophie and Keeton put the past aside to find a unexpected future?

This was another good addition to the Cooper Creek Series. I must say that I absolutely feel in love with Keeton. He easily fit in with the other Cooper men, even though he's not! He was strong yet tender and it was fun to watch him with little Lucy. I had a little trouble liking Sophie. She didn't really feel like a warm person to me. But, that would be characteristic of someone who has put walls around their heart. They're emotionally distant. This story also has a little mystery to it as well as a little suspense, which was fun. You really feel apart of the town of Dawson while you're reading and even when you finish you'll find your mind wandering back there. It's like going home to visit with old friends! Looking forward to more!
