Blurb: The toughest ride of his life is all in his head.
Bull rider Scott Gillard has a reputation for quick fists and harsh words. What no one knows is where that anger comes from. After a shocking incident sends him into a tailspin, he knows he needs help: he’s been fighting a battle he could never win. Now he’s trying to navigate a new life and embrace his true self, but some days are easier than others.
Pickup man Cory Ackerson has suffered his share of harassment, but his light still burns bright. He doesn’t let anything or anyone keep him down, so when he meets the rugged cowboy with a battered chip on his shoulder and regret in his dark eyes, all he wants to do is help.
As their unlikely friendship grows into something deeper, Scott must overcome his past to be the man Cory deserves, or lose his best chance at his own happily ever after.
Review: Our very own Jackie did an awesome review of the e-book for Pulling Leather, so this audiobook review is going to be an add-on to it.
I love the Pickup Men series! And I can’t decide whether it’s Pickup Men or Pulling Leather that is the winning favorite. I mean, you can’t read one without the other, but Pulling Leather exceeded my expectations in how Scott Gillard was going to redeem himself after being such an ass in book one.
Dorian Bane’s narration immediately pulled me into the world of rodeo cowboys, especially when Scott and Tripp were talking with each other and Tripp let it be known that he knew what Scott had done the night he was so badly beaten. I loved how Cory turned out to be the type of person who looks at both sides of a story, and was able to make his decision on how to judge a person instead of listening to all the gossip or hearsay. He made himself the type of person I would love to hang out with.
L.C. Chase and Dorian Bane have both pulled off telling a story that I really was engrossed in, and I was kind of sad yet happy when it ended. What can I say? I don’t like to let go of a book that’s captured my imagination with an unforgettable voice like Dorian Bane’s. I now hear his country drawl and voice characterizations in my head when I think back on this series.
All in all, Pulling Leather is a wonderful finish to the Pickup Men series. Now, if L.C. Chase decides to add to it…I would be all ears and eyes towards another story.
For me, this is a 5 Stars worthy performance!
