A game of pretend with the highest stakes of all in the latest novel of breathtaking romance from USA Today bestselling author Caitlin Crews

Ty Everett ran off to the rodeo when he turned eighteen and has been riding bulls ever since…until his last fall causes partial amnesia and he must return to Cold River Ranch to figure out what comes next. But how can he pick his next move when he can’t remember how he got here in the first place—much less the beautiful woman who appears at the ranch, claims she knows him, and warms his cold heart for the first time since he woke up in the hospital?

Rodeo Queen Hannah Monroe gave up her crown for Ty Everett, and her innocence. What she wants from Ty now is a divorce. But Ty can’t remember her—or their secret wedding, or even the son she never meant to hide from him—and Hannah is torn. How can she leave the man she can’t forget and still loves despite herself? And even if she’s willing to start over, what will happen when the truth comes out? (Goodreads)


Ty has been riding bulls since he left home and joined the rodeo when he turned eighteen.  But when he falls and gets injured, the life he has known is over. And the worst part is that he cannot remember the last couple of years.  His fall caused amnesia and those years have not come back to him. One of the things that he has forgotten is Hannah. He does not know who she is and what history there is between them.  When he sees her again, it is like he is seeing a stranger.

Hannah was a Rodeo Queen who had it all.  But she gave all of that up when she met Ty.  She fell for him hard and when they secretly married, she was so happy.  When he had his accident, that all changed. Her life fell apart as completely as Ty’s.   She goes to Cold River Ranch to confront him and ask for a divorce. When she realizes he does not even remember her, things get more complicated (if that is even possible).   Ty and Hannah have lot of hard work ahead of them if they are going to figure things out and get their lives back together (either together or apart).

 I felt that the writing style was a little stiff and did not flow as smoothly as I would have liked.  It may have been the amount of inner monologue that went on through the book. Some is okay but I think this went way overboard.  That is only my opinion and others may not agree with me.   

The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and I felt that I was at the ranch, watching all of the action taking place.  She is also very talented in her emotional writing and there were a lot of heartfelt moments in this book. The author took me on an emotional roller coaster, which is not a bad thing.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted women’s contemporary romance.
