Her Heart for the Asking

HER HEART FOR THE ASKING                LISA MONDELLO
Posted: June 26, 2013

Her Heart for the Asking (Texas Hearts, #1)Mandy Morgan swore she’d never step foot in Texas again after Beau Gentry left her for life on the rodeo circuit eight years before. He once promised he'd love her forever. But he'd abandoned their love for the rodeo and she hadn't seen him since. Now she's back in Texas. Her uncle’s heart is failing and Mandy has to convince him that surgery will save his life. She never dreamed the first thing she’d see when she stepped off the plane would be her biggest nightmare...the one man she’d never stopped loving.

Beau Gentry had the fever for two things: the rodeo and Mandy Morgan. But for Beau, loving Mandy was complicated by his father’s vendetta against her uncle and a promise he'd made to an old friend. Hank Promise, Mandy's uncle, was more like a father to Beau than his old man had been. The hardest thing Beau had ever done was leave Mandy behind for the rodeo. He can still see the bitterness and hurt on her face. It has killed him all these years to think Mandy had forgotten him...maybe even in the arms of another man. But now they’re both back in Texas, and Beau's going to do all he can to win back her love.

MY REVIEW:

Mandy was madly in love a bronco rider & cowboy Beau at sixteen. They had met at her uncle & aunt's ranch that she went to every summer from the age of 7. She went with Beau to a few of his rodeo gigs & loved it. Mainly she just loved being with him since she loved him with all of her sixteen year old heart. Beau was 4 years older & bronco riding was in his blood like it had been in Mandy's uncle's who trained Beau. So, all that summer of her sixteenth year she talked to him about her hopes & dreams for the future & yet at the same time running away with him when he was leaving that same summer. Beau made a decision that he couldn't let her do that. So, he tells Mandy he doesn't love her, never did & was not taking her with him. She was crushed. Her world felt like it was coming to an end. As much as she loved her aunt & uncle she could not go back to the ranch.
Nine years have passed when she gets a call from her mother saying she must drop everything & go check on her uncle something is not right. She says she can't since now she is working for her hard Ass dad who she is always trying to win his approval. Then her mom says those dreaded words no child likes to hear no matter how old you are..."I'm not asking you I'm telling you." What could a girl do. When her flight ends guess who's there to pick her up? Oh yeah! Life is about to change forever for everyone. What a great short story highly recommend. Several twist & turns.
