    Rodeo Summer is part of the Camden Ranch Series by Jillian Neal. This book was generously provided to me in exchange for an honest review by the author.Austin Camden loves his life on the Camden Ranch. But after a tragedy when he was sixteen years, he has always felt like he was searching for something. Something he could never quite reach. Ever since he was a boy, he has loved rodeos. He and his friends practiced on anything they could get their hands on. Now, Austin is a champion bull rider and is currently having the best season of his life. If he continues on, this will be his year to finally win that elusive PBR Championship. But even with winning, he still felt like he was searching for something. Then, one night in a bar, he found just what he was looking for, Summer Sanchez. “On the bull, he was alive, heart thundering in his chest, blood surging through his veins, conviction in his soul. The rest of the time he simply existed, desperate and anxious for something he couldn’t seem to find.”Summer’s life has never been easy. A father that never wanted her and manipulated her into marrying Brant Preston Jr. Brant was a low life, abusive bully that Summer left just a few months into their marriage, and her pregnancy. The only good thing that came out of it was her beautiful little baby boy, J.J. But now Brant and his mother were trying to take custody away from Summer so she was forced to follow them around the rodeo circuit for their one week on, one week off custody arrangement until the court date. She was at her wit’s end that night in the bar. Who knows what she would have done to Brant if Austin hadn’t hauled her out of there, and saved her.Summer swore she would never again fall for a cowboy. But falling is just what she is doing for this handsome man. He is everything she envisioned a real cowboy would be. But, she has to save her son. Nothing else matters. Still, Austin convinces her to give him a chance. To give him time to prove to her that he can be the man she needs, her hero.Austin and Summer had chemistry that smoked up the pages. They had no problem at all with compatibility both in the bedroom or out of it. Austin never thought he would want an instant family but he fell for little J.J. as fast as he did for his Mama. He felt a completeness that he had searched for his entire life. All he wants to do is take them back to Camden Ranch and make a home for them. But, there is more going on here than just the custody issues. One of the bulls that Brant’s family is providing is off the rails crazy and has severely injured every rider that has been put on his back. And then there is Brant’s mother. She is a whole higher level of crazy.This is a very sexy, steamy book with plenty of sweetness as well and also suspense. I enjoyed a little glimpse of Brock and Hope from the previous book and some of Austin’s brothers as well as the Camden family closes ranks and does whatever is needed to protect their own. And Summer and her little boy are instantly accepted into their family as one of their own. I love the Camden family and their ranch and look forward to the next book, Forever Wild, when we will get Austin’s brother Luke’s story.“Hold on to what is good even if it is a handful of dirt.Hold on to what you believe even if it is a tree that stands by itself.Hold on to what you must do, even if it is a long way from here.Hold on to life even if it is easier to let it go.Hold on to my hand even if I have gone away from you.”

A modern day Western romance, electrified with bold sexual innuendo, thoughts and actions, Rodeo Summer makes riding a bucking bull for eight seconds seem tame.

Grab your hats, boots and Daisy Dukes, as the rodeo circuit becomes a hotbed for trouble of both the good and bad kind.Summer is struggling to get full custody from the conniving, down low father of her little boy. As soon as that happens, she is so outta there, no more horny cowboys, no more grit and sand of the arena as a follower.

    Love the CamdensAwe Summer and Austin...what an amazing couple! The suspense, romance and sexy times were great. The book moved quickly the characters were all well written and the storyline pulled you into it. Why I gave four stars? Well with everything the Brants put Summer and J.J through then Austin, when they finally get what is coming to them, it's super anticlimactic and well just boring. I mean come on these people care only about themselves, what they want and what they deserve, that when they are busted for their crimes it was just ho hum!! Easy good romance book with all the Camdens making an apperance, HEA , no ow/om and no cliffhanger.

    I’ve always been a fan of Jillian Neal, but her new Camden Ranch series is going to be HOT!Austin Camden is a champion bull rider on a mission. Nothing will stop him from winning the next PBR buckle, but no one knows the demons that he fights on a daily basis. Summer Sanchez was a champion barrel racer, but now she is chasing down her scumbag ex to gain custody of her son. When Austin and Summer meet, the sparks ignite!I loved reading this new series from Jillian! It is HOT! Austin is a true cowboy, raised on a ranch and knows how to treat a woman. On top of that he is a total hottie. Who can’t resist a hot, cowboy alpha male? I loved the story of Austin and Summer. Watching how he was willing to help Summer no matter what, and watching as Summer healed Austin and rid him of his demons was amazing. There were so many parts of this book that had me swooning and smiling! I can’t wait until the next book in this series! Congratulations on another amazing book Jillian!!

    I had mixed feelings about this book. The story line was good and kept me interested, but some of the dialogue made me cringe at times. Plus the "showdown" that's hinted at throughout the book, isn't as dramatic as it's built up to be. Basically it's the story of a down on her luck mom trying to get custody of her son from her douchey ex and the rodeo cowboy who helps her. As they travel from town to town along the rodeo circuit, they fall in love.Austin is supposed to be this alpha cowboy who is haunted by his best friend's death years ago. But the author tries a little too hard to make us believe he's this all knowing, alpha, bad ass. I think he could have said a whole lot less and we would have gotten the picture. The conversations just drag on and on just so he can prove that he is the alpha and he knows all. Not to mention he turns just about every conversation into something sexual. There are also scenes that really go nowhere and don't enhance the story at all.Summer is supposed to be this strong but down on her luck woman. But we only get to see hints of her strength. She's overshadowed by non-stop talking, take charge Austin. I would have liked for her to at least stood up for herself more than once or twice. Plus the ending, to me, was a letdown for her character. Everything was just tied up in a nice little bow. She didn't get to confront anyone. I gave the book 3 stars because I finished it and if you take out the extra stuff, it's a decent story.

    Hot, steamy, dirty and free!A great book, well written with strong characters that bring an instant reaction from the reader.....lust, passion, hate, fear or intrigue, each and every cast member you meet brings a response from you.Austin is a strong, confident, cocky bull rider and why wouldn't he be? He is top of the rankings, unbeatable, he can almost feel the PBR buckle in the palm of his hand.....his only focus for the last ten years of his life. But in the blink of an eye he falls and that focus changes, the second he touched Summer he knew, she was his future and he must keep her safe no matter what the cost, even if that means walking away from PBR.Summer relies on no-one, trusts no-one and most definitely doesn't want another man in her life trying to control her, but can Austin prove he doesn't want to control her - he wants to worship her, protect her and provide for her but can she trust her heart or will her head keep her running?I enjoyed this book with one exception, Austin repeatedly calls Summer 'doll baby' I am assuming this is supposed to be a term of endearment but it irritated me each and every time as it just felt cheap and cheesy and has resulted in the 4.5 stars rather than 5, however this is my one and only complaint with this book and it didn't stop me buying the second in the series - I loved meeting all of the Camden's and joining them on their ranch. As a free download you have to give it a try, there is nothing to lose!

    Austin Camden was at the top of his game and he knew this year he was going to get the buckle he had been aiming at. His whole life had been the rodeo and getting further in the game. That was until he helped a damsel in distress or maybe saved her from the big bad wolf of an ex. Either way he ran into Summer and life changed for him in that instant. He didn't realize it at the time but he just ran headlong into his future. Summer lives her life for her son who she shares custody with her ex Brant. A big wig with his fathers company. She has been following him from rodeo to rodeo trying to live up to the custody agreement set for them. See money talks when your Brant. She knew she would have to bide her time until she could find something on him so she can regain full custody of her son J.J. Then she met Austin and he jumped right into her life and wanted it all with her and her son. Many ups and downs through the story but wow I was mesmerized by their story. They find love in each other that knew no bounds.

    I’m a huge fan of Jillian Neal! She writes amazing stories and it’s so easy to follow what is going on in the book. When you’re reading any of her books, you can just picture each scene in your mind, like watching a movie! I love to reads book that are written like that. She also gets the rodeo scenes, bull ridding, barrel racing perfect! So much action, romance and drama! Just be ready to read this book all at once!

    Adrenaline rushI thought Brock was going to be my favorite Camden, BUT oh my Austin has blown my socks clean off. If only I could have met my Austin a long time ago. But I did meet my own cowboy. I LOVE this family. Family is first but they are able to welcome each new spouse with the same shoulder to shoulder protection.

    Pleasantly surprised. I thought this was a short erotic cowboy novel, but instead it was a contemporary romance with a hot alpha male. Summer got on my nerves with her wanting to run away so much, but Austin was able to keep her focused. Loved the flow of the whole story, but the last 4 chapters felt forced into tying up loose ends and catching the protagonist. Now that I realized this is part of a series, I will go back and read the other stories. This is a stand alone, but I want to see how Brock and Hope meet. Worth reading.

    Meeting Austin, the Rodeo Hero, and Summer, the former Barrel Racing Star, was such a pleasure. Getting to know them and seeing them interact with their family, or lack their of was greatly put together in the chapters of this novel.This book had me fighting for the cowboy something fierce. Jillian did a great job of putting you right in the scene before you and not backing down one bit. The emotions in this were just like I would imagine bull riding would be, unpredictable with a hard landing with your ass. Austin Camden... holy Rodeo Cowboy. He does nothing half way, not bull ridin', not friendship, and now with Summer in his sites, not her either. The things this man does for his family and hers is breath taking. He lets it know what he is thinking and feeling all of the time, he does not hold back, ever. Summer has been fighting her whole life, even out of the rodeo circuit. She has a lot to fight for and a good reason to feel as if the world if falling apart at the seams. Her past is hot on her heels and she is trying hard to keep her feet planted firmly on the ground and not fall into the quick sand piles plotted to take her down. I loved this book. It was pretty long compared to what I have been reading, but that didn't deter me one bit.

    One last ride? He was thinking this could be his last year if only he could make his goal. He owes it to him, then he sees her and keeps her from making a big mistake. The problems begin anew as he keeps her close but not only do they go through his things they try to kill him. This goes deeper and they're both about to find out just to what lengths they'll go to and why.Great written characters, some of them had you guessing their true intentions yet others where just themselves. Really enjoyed. I voluntarily received a complimentary copy for an honest review.

    I don't know what it was about this one but I couldn't get into it. I really really tried because I loved Austin (at first). I forced myself to get to 75% but then just couldn't bring myself to care what happened in the last 25%.

    This is a lovely story of finding your perfect mate and knowing it immediately. Austin knew Summer was the one for him but he has to convince her that he is not going to let her down. They also have to overcome a number of hurdles before they get their happy ever after.

    A very good read. Not exactly fast paced but not slow either. An enjoyable story line & I will more than likely read others in the series. Ex cowgirl meets cowboy & they fall in love & overcome the odds to stay together & become a family. Emotional with passion.

    Oh friends. Be jealous. Be veeeerry jealous. I just finished reading my favorite book of 2016, and even more important, my favorite book ever written by author Jillian Neal. Those of you that have read her previous Realm and Gypsy Beach series, know that this is quite the proclamation for me to make… but I say this with whole- hearted truth: Rodeo Summer freaking ROCKED!We were first introduced to Brock Camden’s cousin, Austin, in Coincidental Cowgirl. Rodeo Summer is Austin’s story and boy-oh-boy is it a story to read. Austin is a pro bull rider, so need I say more? Chiseled, ruggedly handsome, charmingly cocky, and a gentleman to boot. Then in walks ex- barrel racing champ Summer Sanchez. Summer, along with her little boy JJ, quickly steal Austin’s heart and soul, giving him a glimpse into the future that he’s always dreamed of having. Standing in the way of this HEA, is a ‘colorful’ cast of characters that add depth and intrigue to this thoroughly romantic (*read* HOT!) tale.I refuse to offer spoilers in my reviews, so lets just say that Austin and Summer are a match made in bookie heaven. Her sassy, stubborn, devotion are a perfect match to his manly, slightly chauvinistic, yet completely endearing ways. They literally jumped out of the pages upon their first meeting, and the pairing only got stronger as the pages read on. It was around the 60% mark when their insanely HOT relationship took a turn. Not only did we get to witness their devotion to each other, but we also got to see them come together as a partnership, fighting for the one thing that means the most to both of them… JJ. Heart wrenching!! Perhaps one of my favorite parts of this entire book though, was the gentle spirit of Austin’s friend Max, guiding the steps of this fated pair. Book drunk… that is me, right now. A bittersweet, yet amazing feeling that only happens occasionally at the hands of a masterful writer. Go friends- pick up this book, and prepare to get lost in a world of luscious cowboys, familial charm, and a huge heap of dang-good story telling!

    This story had me completely drawn in by the end of the second page. I couldn’t get enough of the twist and turns and unexpected loops that this story took me through. The sexual tension and passion between Austin and Summer is palpable and practically explosive, and when they finally give in to sexual tension it is like a bomb went off. Holy hell is the sex intense and HOT HOT HOT!Austin is what we like to call a true southern gentleman. He is very family oriented and loves Summer with his heart and soul. He does everything in hi power to make sure Summer is safe and taken care of (whether she likes it or not) . I love how Austin is not deterred by the presence of little J.J. and how he immediately accepts him as soon as they meet. The deal that Austin makes with J.J. is beyond precious and melted my heart. Summer is so sweet and 100% devoted to J.J. and making sure he is safe while he is with her overbearing dill-hole of a Ex and his pretentious bitch of a mother (whom reminds me of Deloris Umbridge from Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix).This book will keep you on your toes and wanting more. I can’t wait for more from Camden Ranch group.

    I have read all of Jillian Neal's novels and this book is at the top of my list! Austin and Summer's story is one I couldn't put down. I read this book in two sittings. I could not put it down. Jillian has this ability to take a simple love story and add meaningful plots and side stories and she makes you fall in love with her characters. You become invested in their plights and emotions and you root for them from beginning to end. I also love the fact that Summer, the female lead in this book, is a divorced mommy who is fiercely devoted to her child. Few love stories tackle such a complicated, yet real-life story. Summer's priority is her son and in the aftermath of her rocky divorce and in trying to get away from her clingy ex, she ends up finding true love in the one type of man she swore off forever, a cowboy. This was Jillian's first erotica novel and believe me she does not disappoint. Her love scenes sizzle off of the pages. Hot!!If you haven't yet read any of Jillian's works, this is a perfect place to start!
