A Cowboy State of Mind (Creedence Horse Rescue #1)

COWBOY STATE OF MIND                          JENNIE MARTS

Scarred and battered loner Zane Taylor has a gift with animals, particularly horses, but he's at a total loss when it comes to knowing how to handle women. Even though he's sworn off love, he can't seem to stay away from Bryn Callahan. He's known for being a horse whisperer, but can't seem to find his voice at all where Bryn is concerned.

Bryn Callahan has a heart for strays, but she is through trying to save damaged men. She vows to only date nice guys, which is a category that does not include Zane Taylor. Too bad he's the only one who sets her pulse racing every time she's around him.

Starting a horse rescue ranch wasn't in Bryn's plan, but try telling that to the assembly of abandoned animals that have found their way to her doorstep. And when a chance encounter with a horse headed for slaughter brings Zane and Bryn together, they find themselves given a chance to save not just the horse, but maybe each other...


The first book in a new series and I thought this was a really fine story. You have Zane Taylor who has been verbally abused by his father forever, and even physically with a scare on one side of his face from a beer bottle that his father used. After going to Afghanistan and being injured there his hopes of staying in the military are gone. He is now going from ranch to ranch working with horses. People call him a horse whisper though he does not look at himself that way.
Bryn Callahan a waitress at the dinner is walking on the side of the road after her car broke down, Zane stops and gives her a lift into her work and after she settles in along with her three-legged dog, she focuses on the horse that they past coming in that was in the unkept trailer. The two men saying she can have the horse but she turns them down they then offer the horse for $100.00 Wouldn’t you know it she just got a tip of one hundred dollars form, Zane. Together they get the horse to her ranch and later the town has come together to help for the feed for it. She also gets another horse and slowly she is becoming a horse and animal rescue ranch which she did not plan.
She also di not plan on having feelings for Zane but she does, the problem is the guy she took in actually took from her. Money, her truck, her grandfather's champion belt buckle, and her self-esteem. Even after Zane helps her in getting some of those items back and he wants to be with her he does not feel worthy of her. She wants him but she is tired of fixing men or trying to. So, starting with her brother she is done. You see the growth with the characters and you root for them throughout the book. You just don’t know if Zane will see what she does. A good book with wonderful characters, very much worth the read. I received this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 5 stars Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com
