Bullet Simmons never rides shotgun, but there is no question, Tristan McCullough has taken control of the wheel.
Bad boy, bull rider Bullet Simmons has a good heart. He just has trouble in the decision-making department, which helped him develop his well-earned reputation on the rodeo circuit. That reputation was cultivated before his son’s mother died, however, leaving him a single parent. Bullet was a different man now, a man determined to become a world championship bull rider, to make a better life for his son. To do that, though, he needed money, or more specifically the coveted Lost Cowboy sponsorship.
When he meets the keeper of that gold and holder of his dreams, Tristan McCullough, owner of Lost Cowboy, Bullet turns on the charm to win her over. But he quickly finds out Tristan is unimpressed and is going to be a tough nut to crack. Why? Because his reputation has preceded him with her and her brand has an image to uphold, which according to her, he doesn’t fit. Bullet sets out to prove her wrong, but has no idea how to do that.
He is just about to give up hope, when he hears that Lost Cowboy has teamed up with the Flying R Rough Stock Ranch to co-sponsor the sponsorship. He hires on there hoping, if he works hard enough, he can prove to them he has changed and is the right man for the job. But Tristan is still resistant, even under pressure from the men at the Flying R who have become his friends.
Fate sends him a last chance, a golden opportunity, when he finds himself alone with Tristan for a week at a dude ranch in the Colorado Rockies. Bullet vows to pull out all the stops, even his old ways, since the new ways weren’t working.
But would those moves get him the money or a swift kick in the nuts? Or would his life be further complicated by falling in love with a hardheaded rich girl who’d sworn off loving bad boy bull riders?
