Ridin' Hard (Behind the Chutes 1) by Ree Alexander

Bullrider and all around hunk, Mitchell Sorenson is seeing stars and not the good kind. After taking a hoof to the skull from a randy bull, he wakes up in the back of an ambulance to the most amazing set of blue eyes he's ever seen.

Kyle Matthews is a huge fan so when he'd working his shift as a paramedic during the rodeo and has to care for his bullriding idol, he's in awe. Training kicks in when Mitchell is disoriented, but can he put aside his own feelings for the sexy bullrider to tend to his wounds?

Can two ships passing in the night find love in the arena of the local rodeo?

 Reviewer: RedDragonfly

Mitchell has been riding bulls for years, he lives and breaths the  adrenaline rush he gets from it. At the start of the novella he takes a hoof to the head because he hasn't replaced his last broken helmet and has to be taken to the hospital. The paramedic taking him there is named  Kyle and he is a huge rodeo fan and happens to think that Mitchell is the best of the best and has harbored a crush on him for 5 years. 

This novella was enjoyable and I'd recommend it, but it's pretty average as far as cowboy romances go. There was nothing new or different  and there wasn't any major conflict for our two leads to overcome so nothing really stands out in this story. It was simply a hot love at  first site story that if you are looking for something that isn't really developed you should enjoy, but if you are looking for deep character development or undying love (there's a chance for that in the future but this story takes place only over two days) you might want to skip this.  Also, on a side note that has nothing to do with the quality of the  story, the model on the cover is pretty hot. I'm giving this story 3.5  stars.
