Wrangler's Challenge (Wind River Valley #4)


For Noah Mabry, it’s easier sometimes to relate to the dogs and horses he trains than to other people. Ever since his marriage became a casualty of the war in Afghanistan—torn apart by the PTSD he brought back with him—he prefers to be on his own. At the Bar C Ranch, where he works with a crew of fellow military vets, his gentle patience helps tame even the rowdiest mustang—but he’s about to meet a woman who needs a healing touch he’s not sure he can give.
Dair Wilson, a half-Comanche ex-Marine who lost a foot to an IED, has been hired on to assist Noah, but her deepest wounds aren’t visible. Growing up in an abusive home, she learned not to trust men, even ones who seem nothing but kind. After a wild horse sends her sprawling, the attentive care she receives from the Bar C family—and especially from Noah—is enough to convince her she’s found a place she can finally breathe easy. But one angry, damaged man poses a threat not only to Dair and Noah, but to everyone who’s built a new home at the Bar C . . .


This is the fourth book in this series, and for me, I was disappointed in this one. You are back at the Bar “C” Ranch and all of the other characters are the same, but after the beginning when you are introduced to Dair Wilson the book seems for me to drag. I really was looking forward to the story with Noah and finding more about him but other than his parents and his animal training you really don’t. I also felt at times that the author who had Dair being around animals and training horses since she was a teen with her grandmother at times being a novice, but then with the experience she talked about with her grandmother and the time spent with the man that trained Noah that she had to ask for permission. Maybe that part was just me but it seemed like it did not make sense and therefore my mind could not wrap around her just giving up power and control so easily when she was looking for that with the animals. The other parts of the book had the same characters and for the most part was the same. But for me, this story was just lacking something. I did think it was good having a female vet with a war wound. Losing her foot and dealing with her emotions about that. I guess I was expecting more as from the other books. I got this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 3 stars. Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com
