Tanner Ford has been riding bulls and busting broncos his entire life. So when he takes a hard spill—and sustains serious injuries—he refuses to believe his rodeo days are behind him. He’s determined to restore his body and revive his career. There’s just one problem: the finest physical therapist in town just happens to be the only woman he’s ever loved.
Lauren Lewis knows she made a huge mistake when she walked away from Tanner. But she was young, ambitious, and focused on her medical career. Now, after all these years, Tanner’s back—and, in spite of his injuries, looking better than she allows herself to admit. She agrees to work on Tanner’s big bruised muscles until he’s back in bull-riding shape again. But how can Lauren resist the smoldering attraction between her and her old flame. . .and find a way to live without him?

I love a second chance romance, and I’ll always hop on-board with a cowboy romance – good thing for me they combine in the intriguing All Night with the Cowboy.
Once upon a time Tanner and Lauren were sweethearts who might have gone on to live a happy life together… or may have ended up hating each other for the dreams they never fulfilled. It’s hard to tell now in hindsight, but Lauren made her choice. She was driven to heal and her passion was to become a physical therapist. Breaking up with Tanner was the hardest thing she’d done, but she also didn’t tell him all the reasons for that breakup.
Years later Tanner has become a successful bull rider, and also has the first major injury of his career. One that requires time and an expert to get him back into riding shape, leave it to his sister to find him the perfect physical therapist.
I enjoyed Tanner and Lauren’s second chance romance. Yes, there are issues and anger, most certainly hurt on both sides to work out. But it’s easy to fall back in love while staying in paradise with the one you never stopped loving at your side. I think Tanner and Lauren make a better, more realistic couple as adults. They’ve lived their dreams, they have some wisdom and experience that was lacking before. The love is still there, maybe buried down under some hurt at first but it only takes an ember. I enjoyed my time with this couple, and I’m always gong to love when people get that second chance to make things right. Although I usually believe in starting a series at the beginning, if you cannot do that then All Night with the Cowboy can be read on its own just fine. If you love cowboys, second chances, and determined women then you’ll enjoy this romance.
