Review: The Cowgirl Meets Her Match

The Cowgirl Meets Her Match 
by Kristin Vayden

My rating:  4 Stars

Kindred spirits Captain Sterling Garlington (what a name!) and Harper Matthews are working closely together. Sterling is now an honorably discharged US marine forced to now take orders from equine therapist Harper. Sterling is a broken man, as his military career was his whole world, and now a permanent injury has changed his life forever. Harper was seriously hurt in a previous relationship and is rebuilding her life.

Sterling is terrified for his future, and Harper is terrified of her past. Will the two of them be able to move forward when an undeniable attraction blossoms between them? Harper is a strong woman who had endured a horribly abusive relationship. Although she just might realize that giving Sterling a chance is a risk that may very well be worth it, there very well be a certain measure of angst.

The relationship that develops between Sterling and Harper is absolutely wonderful, and grew at a nice, relaxed pace. Meanwhile, the story is enhanced by the description of equine training and how it helps not only the body, but the mind. Sterling needs to heal and Harper needs to trust. One thing that stood out in this book is that Sterling wasn't injured one day and healed the next. It was a real battle, and went a long way into making this a very sensitive read. The sweet romance in this engaging in this story is quite enjoyable. For a quick read, pick up this third book in the Elk Heights Ranch series.

Many thanks to Kensington Books and to NetGalley for this ARC to review in exchange for my honest opinion.
