The Bull Rider’s Secret by Jill Lynn
goodreads | amazon | bookdepository | christianbook | bookbub
“Mackenzie Wilder didn’t want to kill her brother in the true sense, just in the what-were-you-thinking, cartoon-wringing-of-the-neck sense.”
From the opening line to a satisfying conclusion, I love this book and all the delicious banter within! This story is for everyone and especially those who have lived the expected life or taken the assumed path. Second chance romance is one of my favorite tropes and Jill Lynn does it right!
The Wilders have quickly become one of my favorite fictional families! Mackenzie is a strong character with complex layers but her tough exterior doesn’t eclipse her compassionate heart. Jace is noble, hard-working, self-sacrificing, a tad misguided, and all kinds of determined. The way these two clash and yet perfectly fit one another’s imperfections is a beautiful thing.
The Bull Rider’s Secret certainly has me reexamining the whys in my own life and I deeply appreciate fiction which challenges my perspective, inspires me and spurs me into action. I highly recommend this story and I picked up a print copy to add to my all-time favorites shelf!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and was under no obligation to post a review. The opinions expressed are my own.
Enter the giveaway and check out Jill’s q&a here and go to Hoarding Books to find more FLF bloggers!

“I clutched the edge of my seat and rested my forehead on the shuddering train window.”
Hope you have a great weekend. Happy reading! ???
I’m a fan of the Love Inspired line!
Today on my blog I’m sharing the first few lines from An Informal Affair by Heather Gray, which is the book I am currently reading. I’m on chapter 17 so I’ll share that chapter’s first line here. “Lia awoke to sunshine and blue skies.”
I hope you have a nice weekend!
My first line is from Finding Lady Enderly:
I do not wish for all my dreams to come true. After all, nightmares are one type of dream. -Diary of a Substitute Countess
Spitalfields, London’s East End, 1871
For one blessed moment, I was beautiful.
On my blog, I’m featuring The Trail Boss’s Bride by Erica Vetsch. Since it’s my current read, I’ll share the first line from Chapter 9. “Kitty had never seen so much rain.” I hope you will have a wonderful weekend.
Today on my blog I shared the first line from King’s Shadow by Angela Hunt but it’s also my current read so I’ll share the first line from chapter 23 here: “Anyone who studied Herod in the days following Aristobulus’s death would not doubt his deep and sincere grief.” Happy reading!
Happy Friday! Today I’m sharing the first lines from You Belong With Me by Tari Faris: “Was she really the only one left who cared about this town?”
On my blog, I shared the first couple of lines of a book I recently finished – The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang. Here, though, I’ll be sharing the first lines of one of the books I’m currently reading – Wild Savage Stars by Kristina Perez.
“The waves mocked her.
Discordant laughter swelled in Branwen’s mind and twisted her heart. She couldn’t remain on the ship one moment longer. Her skin itched.”
Wild Savage Stars is the sequel to Kristina Perez’s Sweet Black Waves, which is a Tristan & Eseult retelling. I’m enjoying it so far and I hope you liked the first few lines I shared.
Hope you have a great weekend!
I’m sharing on my blog the first line from Grace in Deep Waters by Christine Dillon.
