#WOTR24 #MM #Cowboys – Falling Hard, Eight Second Ride book 1 by Sandy Sullivan

Falling Hard (Eight Second Ride, #1)

Meet two champion bull riders–macho, muscled Marlboro Men, confident, cocksure cowboys–from their struggle for survival in the rodeo arena, and 8 seconds of fame on the back of a 2000 lb bull to their most private encounters behind closed doors where their world is about to explode…

Levi Bond is a seasoned pro, competing for the World Championship. Bull riding is what gets his adrenaline pumping, his heart racing, and makes him feel like a million bucks. That, and the idea of getting it on with Curt Walsh, one of the up and coming stars of the bull riding circuit. Powerfully attracted, Curt’s confused and unsure which way he wants his life to go. Will Levi still be around, available and interested when the final decision is made?

Get set for a wild ride in this cowboy romance, sizzling with intense desire, unbridled passion, and unexpected emotion as Levi and Curt, drawn together like mega magnets, battle not only life threatening, white knuckled action in the arena, but cruelty and bias outside it. The prospect of falling in love is as terrifying as staying on the bull without it killing them!



Review by Twinsie Angie

I received this book to beta read from the author.

I have read a ton of Sandy’s book and have enjoyed them all. However, I have to say, this book is my favorite of all. I love the story she created with Curt and Levi. I loved the fact we got to see this couple form a solid friendship while also developing a lasting love. I cannot wait for more from this series and to see where Curt and Levi go because at the end there will still one big lingering questions!!!

Levi is a very well respected bull rider. He is the older guy on the circuit that is kinda the “good guy”. He will help out anyone that needs it. He is also a loner and known to be gay on the circuit. He is ok with that but also doesn’t flaunt his sexuality in the faces of the guys who DONT approve with his lifestyle choices. Levi has watched from afar Curt. Curt is fun and easy going BUT he likes the ladies….or does he???

Curt had heard that Levi is into guys but wasn’t sure. Soooo what’s a guy do when he is interested? He asks to room with Levi. He figures , if he is GAY then he is super close to get to “knowing” him better!!

The guys really get to know each other while they are also “getting to know each other”. Levi is so strong but loves that Curt is super alpha. Curt who loves to take charge loves allowing this other man to sometimes spin on him and take over. The jealousy they each have over the other one having someone else liking them was great. I loved seeing them both get angry and claiming the other man….plus its super hawt right???

Levi is very shy and about his relationship with Curt. He doesn’t want to rock the boat or upset anyone. Curt on the other hand could care less about what people think about him and his lifestyle except when it comes to his parents. But Levi wants permanent and Curt isn’t sure he cant settle down with a guy since he also enjoys the ladies as well.

Their love story is wound through them riding the bull circuit and loving each other hard. When Levi asks for more Curt cant seem to make a decision. Then there is an accident and the men realize that they could lose it all with one bad ride. Decisions are made and choices are told……This falling in love stuff is really hard on everyone no matter who you choose to love.
