Cassidy Greer knows that cowboys are nothing but trouble. But when her childhood crush comes riding into town, she starts to have second thoughts. Levi's a world-class bull rider now, and more handsome than ever. It's a good thing she's headed out of town soon or she just might be tempted....
As a famous rodeo star, Levi Cortez could have his pick of any woman on the circuit. But when he reconnects with Cassidy, sweet memories come rushing back. Levi knows Cass doesn't want to get roped into a relationship. Not with a cowboy. The only question is, can he convince her he's more than just a renegade cowboy before the summer's over?
REVIEW: RENEGADE COWBOY (ROCKY MOUNTAIN RIDERS) BY SARA RICHARDSON
Renegade Cowboy by Sara Richardson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Levi and Cass are an anomaly. What once was a strong friendship has become a chasm of painful memories and hopeless regret. Mistakes of the past leave Levi atoning and Cassidy mourning what was and can never be. Love, loss and immaturity had a hand in breaking a bond that could have been something more. Will fear, regret and the factors of life ruin their second chance? Sara Richardson is not afraid to tackle the tough stuff. Renegade Cowboy is a moment of redemption for a love that almost was but has yet to be. From alcoholism to life's greatest regrets and ever expanding moments of weakness, heartbreak is right on the sidelines pulling them in, but optimism is an even stronger contender at the finish line and refuses to let fear win.

An excerpt from Renegade Cowboy:
The house lights dimmed, hushing the crowd. On the other side of the arena, the bulls were led into the chutes.
Even under the layers of her polyester-blend uniform, a chill prickled across Cassidy’s skin.
The loudspeaker crackled. “Welcome to the first rodeo in the brand
Cheers and hoots rang out. Molly even clapped and hollered beside her. But Cassidy couldn’t move. Instead of clapping, her hands squeezed into fists.
Hank waited until the noise died down. “For our first event, one of our own homegrown cowboys—Levi Cortez—will be riding Ball Buster.” The crowd went crazy again, people jumping to their feet, chanting “Le-vi, Le-vi!”
Cassidy crept closer to the action, stopping just outside the corral’s steel fence.
It’s time to party. That had been her brother’s phrase before every ride. She could still hear his voice, the anticipation, the fire. Levi had it too—the same drive, the untamable spirit. He always had.
Over in the bucking chute, Levi slid onto Ball Buster’s back.
Her heart competed with the crowd’s noise, drumming its own erratic beat. She gripped one of the fence rails tightly as a restless energy rushed through her legs. She wanted to run over there and tell him not to do it. It wasn’t worth a life. But the chute opened and Ball Buster charged into the ring, snorting and kicking and bucking. Dirt flew in clumps. The crowd’s applause muted into an awed hush.
Fear barricaded itself into Cassidy’s lungs as she watched Levi ride.
He looked so broad up there, so fully in control. Even underneath his helmet, she could see that wide, cocky grin, his eyes glistening with passion. He’d rolled up his shirtsleeves enough to show off his bulky forearms, which strained as he held on with one hand and whipped the other freely over his head.
Something caught in her chest. The same girlish flutter she used to get when she’d watch him out on the ranch training with her brother. He looked boyish and free. Unburdened. And something in her wanted that so badly…
The crowd praised his showy ride—his arm lifted over his head, waving as he passed the south side of the stands. The bull stampeded past, and Levi turned his head. He looked at her and flashed an even brighter smile.
She hated the way it warmed her through, the way it sent the sting of anticipation straight to her heart. I don’t want you! she screamed in her head. She couldn’t want him. She wouldn’t. It didn’t matter how much he flirted with her, how much time he forced her to spend with him, he was reckless just like her brother.
