Seven Brides for Seven Cowboys #3
Lizbeth Selvig
Releasing on February 9. 2016
Avon Impulse

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.

. 5 stars!!!
This was one of the most inspiring stories that I have read in a very long time. Both of the main characters are disabled and learn to find their way back to what they love doing by relying on each other. I got lost in this story and did not want it to end. Alec was a lovely cowboy that was not afraid to speak his mind and Joely is a young lady that is used to being in the spotlight, but now does anything and everything she can to stay out of it.

Joely is a former rodeo queen that has been dealt a bad hand in life. She had an accident that left her with many emotional and physical scars that she has not gotten over yet. Joely is hesitant as to what everyone will think about her when she wheels herself down the aisle at her sisters double wedding. When Joely is waiting for her family to finish last minute preparations for the wedding, she meets Alec and she know immediately who he is. Alec was a famous bareback rider in the rodeo years ago. Alec is nothing but a gentleman and has never lost his manners. I loved how these two immediately hit it off, even though they did not know each other previously. 

Alec is suffering from his own scars. He was left without one of his legs when he was involved in an accident overseas while serving in the military. Alec has been able to move on a little more than Joely has. He is in a better place of acceptance, even though by no means has he forgotten what all he has gone through. Alec is determined to help Joely and she is not so sure about that. Joely had no idea that Alec had lost his leg but can relate to him so well once they start talking about everything. 

You get lost in this story and are captured by the journey of Alec and Joely to conquer some of their fears that they still have after their accidents. I have to say that there was never a down moment in the story line for me, everything just flowed so freely and kept moving. I was sad to see this story come to an end. You need to read this one to see what happens to Alec and Joely. Do they let their pasts ruin them and their chance at love or do they conquer their fears and learn to depend on each other for everything? Such a great read!
