A Cowboy's Second Chance
The last person cowboy Joe Gallagher thought he'd see on his ranch was high school sweetheart Rebecca Anshaw Simpson. Twelve years after she married another man, she's back as his physical therapist. But healing his body is nothing compared to guarding his heart from the woman he never forgot. There's much the single mom would rather forget, but Becca won't let regret and a surly rancher get in the way of her job and the chance to start over with her little girl. She has only a few weeks to make peace with her past. But Becca never expected she'd fall all over again for her first love."
Meg's Minutes5 Stars Out Of 5Great ReadMay 4, 2017Meg's MinutesQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is the second book I've read by Tina Radcliffe. The story is set in Paradise, Colorado. In the first story I read, Dan Gallagher was the main character. It's in that book that I first met a secondary character named Joe Gallagher (Dan's older brother and the the star of this book). Since first being introduced to Joe, I've been counting down the days for his story to be told/published. When it finally came I was super happy and excited!
The story was fantastic. The characters were fun and Tina's humor is subtly woven throughout - awesome! Joe is a character I will not forget anytime soon - he also helped me with some of what I'm dealing with too (His perspective and coping with how things turned out after the accident). I can highly recommend this book - it's totally worth the shelf space and would make a great gift book as well. No profanity, and also contains clean behavior on-par with a classic Hallmark movie. It ended happy (a must for me) and it stands on its on.
P.S. The first story I read, where I first met Dan and Joe was: Stranded with the Rancher (Also Love Inspired)
Just Commonly5 Stars Out Of 5With humor and realism, this one is a keeperFebruary 1, 2017Just CommonlyQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Rocky Mountain Cowboy by Tina Radcliffe is simply REAL. What do I mean by that? I mean the themes, the relationships and the authenticity of dealing with loss. Our cowboy in the story Joe, lost an arm in a farming accident that he blamed himself for, and continues to find the loss of a limb humiliating. He's self conscious of it, and doesn't think he's worth two ounce of love because of it. He thinks his "bionic arm" defines him. Does it? What do you think?
"The integral person inside is what people imprint in their minds when they define who you are..." (34)
How many of us can relate to that? How many of us find one flaw in ourselves and believe that's all anyone will see in us? Rocky Mountain Cowboy is real.
I love this story, this book and this cover. The story isn't just about a cowboy's second chance in life and in love, but also for a former cowgirl to find home. It's her second chance too, as long as their equally stubborn selves don't get in the way.
I love the simple truths scattered throughout, as well as the typical humor we've come to expect from the author. When life hits you hard, will you close up, resent or will you try to look past and move on? Sometimes a book will open your mind, and make you reflect. Rocky Mountain Cowboy is that kind of book.
"I have made a commitment to the Lord to stop looking at how far I have to go. I need to focus on how far I've come instead." (27)

KavRCanadaGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Captivating romanceDecember 14, 2016KavRCanadaGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Why am I reduced to mush by a brooding cowboy nursing a broken heart? That's the perfect description of Joe Gallagher and the reason my heart is hammering a mile a minute just thinking about him. His independent-bordering-on-foolish nature gives Becca plenty of trouble and brought me hours of reading enjoyment. :-) Stubbornly clinging to past hurts, he's determined to get the pesky woman out of his sight as fast as possible. He just didn't bargain on her equally stubborn nature -- not to mention her cute-as-a-button daughter with hero worship in her eyes. There's angst and laughter, tenderness and heartache and the sweet promise of happily ever after. The kind of story guaranteed to sweep a reader away into romantical bliss.
My thanks to the author for gifting me with a copy of this book.
