Blurb: Once comfortable on stage in front of thousands, Joely Crockett is now mortified at the thought of walking—or rolling—down the aisle at her sisters’ wedding. Scarred and wheelchair-bound, the former beauty queen has lost more than the ability to walk—she’s lost her fire. But when one handsome, arrogant guest accuses her of milking her injuries and ignites her ire, Joely finally starts to feel truly alive again, and soon it’s impossible for her to resist her heart’s desire.
Alec Morrissey knows a little something about loss. A famous rodeo cowboy before he was injured in Iraq, he’s managed to create something of a normal life, even if it’s not the one he always imagined. Encountering stunning but damaged Joely, he sees a kindred spirit who can learn from his mistakes.
As these two healing souls begin to fall in love under the Wyoming stars, they must discover if they are willing to give in to the tragedies of life or fight for a future together.

Review: Great story, enjoyed the twist about why Alec was egging her on to get over the roadblocks. In the beginning the girl seems very “oh poor, poor me” and winy but after a while you can read her growing. Loved the learning how to drive session that made me chuckle, there was a few other chuckle worthy scenes. It was pretty cool to see the girl lampshade about how in all romance novels the guy always seems to kiss the scars the girl has. The end felt a bit rushed but her eureka moment felt very true and well-written. Think it was just due to the unedited proof but some scenes on who was talking was confusing, as one scene sounds like Alec is but the text is saying she is talking.
I do not get paid for my review via edelweiss.
