    Meet Evan Taylor; Rodeo rider, ranch hand, and someone who has made jumping from bed to bed an art. It's his twenty-sixth birthday, and it's a day that he vows will be different than the rest. Terrified of turning into his father; a man known for collecting buckle bunnies, not trophies, he wants to separate himself from the stigma that is his last name once and for all. It's time to be known for his skills at riding and his achievements in the arena, not who's in his bed that night.He decides on two things: One, flipping to the opposite sex is going to be the fix.And two, his best friend's brother, Spencer, is going to be his good luck charm. So he does what any reformed player does when he's serious about turning his life around - In front of everyone, and without permission, he kisses Spencer. For luck, of course.Spencer wants nothing to do with the cowboy. He's despised Evan for years out of disgust for his playboy ways and maybe a bit out of jealousy as well, but there's no denying there was something with that kiss that has him reliving it again, and again.Evan is determined to prove to Spencer that he's committed to being different, and eventually Spencer agrees to a date. But to the reader, this date feels an awful lot like something Spencer does to spite his brother. Because his brother knows Evan, and monogamy, commitment, and serious are not words used to describe him. For the most part, there are some very sweet moments between these two cowboys. Do I buy their chemistry and feelings? Not really. Mainly, because it all seems so rushed. Love comes quickly for these two men, despite the stubbornness, their quick to anger attitudes, and their jumping to conclusions.It feels like every moment is an obstacle for them. From refusing to give up independence over something as simple as one taking care of the other due to injury, to their worrying over the physical distance of their relationship (which was a mere 30 minutes away), these guys are all or nothing, and move fast. Yet... there's something so earnest and likable about Evan - He's the main reason why I liked this story. He lays it all out there, wears his heart on his sleeve, and sees something special in Spencer that he's determined to cherish. (If Spencer lets him) These two battle for control the entire way, and there's an undercurrent of Dominance that runs beneath their relationship; "When we're alone, you know who's in charge... right, Spence?" It felt out of place and unnecessary. I get that it was meant to reinforce that these two men are manly men, but they already had stubbornness and that whole rugged cowboy thing going for them, they didn't need more.And I realize as I'm writing this, that there was no resolution to their need to eliminate that 30 minute distance that was weighing so heavily on them. So... there's that too. Oh, and a TON of spelling errors as well.I see what the authors were trying to do with this story - They tried to make a short read with some feel good love and a HEA. Do I believe that it was a little out of the realm of believability? Yeah. But it's fiction, and it kept me entertained enough. It's a little sweet, a little romantic, and a little sexy (even though some of the smexing was totally off page *grumbles*)Recommended for those who don't mind the drama, and like their men with a stubborn and gruff outside and a teddy bear interior.

    Evan's Luck is a feel good, low-angst story that will put a smile on your face. The backdrop of the story surrounds the rodeo where Evan has made a name for himself as one of the top bull riders. However, once the ride is over, he has made another name for himself as a player with the buckle bunnies and how many he can bed within a week-end. Evan's not happy though and his biggest fear of turning into his father haunts him daily. Evan wants to make a change in his life for the better and he knows it will be hard but he's willing to prove to not only himself but to the one man that makes his head spin that he can change.It's also time to admit that women have never made him feel anything what one look from Spencer Quinn makes him feel. Now he just needs to win the man's affections. Easier said that done, considering Spencer can't stand Evan. Spencer hears all the stories about Evan from his brother Ross who also happens to be Evan's best friend. So he's caught off guard when Evan tries to kiss him and it makes him furious. It's not easy being gay around the rodeo but fortunately for Spencer his family accepts him and so far he hasn't had any problems, but he doesn't flaunt it anyone's face either. He's been so busy with school and working that he hasn't had time to date either, but that's all about to change. I really enjoyed the story from these two authors who kept the premise more on the lighthearted side. I felt like there were some parts of the story missing especially with Spencer being so concerned about homophobia around the rodeo but as this was a novella I also considered this more a prequel to a bigger story in the future. The banter between Evan and Spencer was really funny and they played off each other really well. It was really a joy to read a family dynamic as incredible as the Quinn's. The power play between Evan and Spencer was also fun and hot and made me smile. Overall, I enjoyed the story and the ending was really sweet. 4 Stars

    My Review:Spencer works for the family ranch bringing in stock for the rodeos. He's very well respected for what he's been able to do with the family business although not everyone approves of him since he's gay. He's grown up with Evan hanging out as his brother's best friend. And knowing all that he knows about Evan means that he's well aware of Evan's reputation as a buckle bunny chaser. He has a different girl every night while out on the circuit. What Spencer doesn't realize is that Evan sleeps with so many women because he's not truly happy going to bed with them. They leave him strangely unsatisfied. Something that doesn't make a whole lot of sense until Evan realizes that he's EXTREMELY attracted to Spencer. While he's flirted with guys before, it's nothing like the attraction he's suddenly feeling toward Spencer. Now Evan has to figure out how to get Spencer to take his interest seriously. I liked the premise of this story a LOT. I also really liked the characters...both the main ones and Spencer's family which play fairly heavily in the story. I also really loved how much Spencer's family supports him even though being gay on the rodeo circuit could possibly cost their business some money with the homophobes. With all that being said though, the story felt a little shallow in its execution. It was almost too easy for these two guys to connect. And after they did there were whole weeks especially early on in their relationship that were completely skipped over in the story. I missed that time because as a reader I needed it to connect and feel fully invested in the long-term success of the two of them together. The story really could have used more conflict especially since it was set up beautifully with the attitudes toward gay men in the rodeo circuit.But even with that, it was an enjoyable read. I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.

    A Joyfully Jay review. 2 starsEarly on, this book went off the track for me and it never did recover. Evan wakes up from another one night stand and feels awful. His father was a womanizer that cheated on his mother and he hasn’t been able to outrun his father’s name on the rodeo circuit. He doesn’t want to be like his father and decides every year he is going to change his ways and this year is no different. Evan sees Spencer and decides he’s exactly what he needs to change. Evan has never been with a man as he says he has never found one that held his attention before Spencer. To make his point, all of a sudden, after not having seen Spencer for years, Evan forces a kiss on him completely out of nowhere out in the open. He gives no thought to Spencer or that Spencer tries to keep a low profile in front of the other men. It’s all about Evan.Perhaps the typo in the blurb should have been a sign of things to come. This book took several themes and unsuccessfully tried to link them together. There are much better rodeo books, much better relationship building books, much better romance books, and overall, much better books out there.Read Michelle's review in its entirety here.

    I have to admit a certain favouritism to this kind of story .. not only one hot cowboy but two! The cover is enough to pull the reader in.It may not be to everyone’s liking, if you don’t appreciate MM stories then this isn’t for you but overlooking that aspect it’s a cute story of finding love after being a ‘love em & leave em’ type. It’s relatively short at only 110 pages and I would like to see a longer version to really expand on this story.There are a lot of homophobes around the rodeo circuit so this quite a brave theme. Follow the awakening of Evan and Spencer’s relationship (think Brokeback Mountain!) love is never simple and it involves give and take. Quick and easy to read, I enjoyed it but suspect my prior knowledge of cowboys aided that! First in a series so it has potential.I received an ARC in exchange for my personal opinion.

    It's a nice quick m/m read. Evan is known in the rodeo circuit for sleeping with all the buckle bunnies, but he wants to change he ways. Spencer his best friend's little brother may just give him the motivation to do just that. Evan and Spencer have some things to work through because the stigma of the old way of thinking and Spencer's trust that Evan can change. It was cute to watch Evan woo Spencer. Over all a good story.

    Independent reviewer for Divine Magazine, I was gifted my copy of this book.Evan has an epiphany on his birthday. He does not want to become his father and decides he's had enough of the buckle bunnies and wants to better himself. When Spencer crosses his path, he knows that the brother of his best friend won't even give him the time of day. But something about Spence calls to Evan, and he knows, deep down, that this needs careful planning and he cannot mess this up.This is a nice book. A nice easy read, not complicated, without much drama. And I mean that in a GOOD way!It's only 40 pages, so a bath tub read, a lunch break read, a very solid hangover cure and waiting for a hospital appointment book!Both Evan and Spencer have their say and it's told in the third person. So we get Evan's sudden but powerful attraction to Spence, and we get Spence's reluctance to let Evan in, but it also gives us the main reason I star this book 4 stars.There is a lot, and for a little book, I really do mean A LOT, of misunderstanding here. It goes back and forth between the two men and it did make me dizzy at points.The other reason was Evan himself. For years, he's done the FEMALE buckle bunnies on the circuit, then, suddenly he wants Spencer, who is male. There was no soul searching on his part, at this sudden flip, no explanation but I needed that explanation, I needed to hear from Evan about why that happened.A nice introduction into book 2 at the end of this one. I'd like to read that as well. The first I've read of this pair of authors, either together or alone, I would like to read more.4 solid stars**same worded review will appear on Goodreads, Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble and Kobo**

    So excited about this new series!From the first scene where Spencer and Evan reacquaint themselves in a most epic fashion, I knew readers were in for a wild ride (insert gratuitous rodeo pun here, if you wish…) I loved the intense dynamic that develops between these two headstrong men as they struggle to forge a new relationship. When we first meet Spencer, he’s trying to live up to his family’s legacy as rodeo stock contractors in an industry still coloured by old school biases. Evan is his brother’s best friend, a rodeo star trying to shake off his father’s legacy of being indiscriminate and irresponsible while he builds a life beyond the circuit. Having done his fair share of living up to that legacy up until that point, it’s not a surprise that Spencer is suspicious of Evan’s intent when he makes his intention to change his hard living ways clear. That hesitation and Spencer’s resistance to relinquishing control are only the beginning of the obstacles Evan faces to get what he wants, and I found myself wanting to sit Spencer down and give him a speech or two of my own about being stubborn. The banter between these two characters is spirited and entertaining and I loved how frustrated I got as these two men proved to be their own worst enemies while learning to be each other’s strongest allies. With a playful narrative style and a quickly moving plot, the heat that simmers between Spencer and Evan kept me reading late into the night. I can’t wait for the next installment in the series.Please note that I was provided with a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    Jennah Scott & H Sterling’s Evan’s Luck, Book 1 in their Riding the Circuit series is a Sweet, Great read. This writing team gets you hooked in the first chapter and you quickly keep turning the pages. I was given a fun cowboy story.Evan Taylor is trying to out run his father’s rotten legacy on the rodeo circuit. Here at his 26th birthday it hits home again that he is not doing well with this objective as his best friend and fellow rodeo circuit cowboy, Ross Quinn is happy to point.This Birthday brings a surprise Evan did not expect-- “Somewhere along the line, Spencer Quinn had grown up and he f**king called to him. The heady knowledge hit Evan square upside the head from out of nowhere.” Spencer Quinn is Ross’ little brother and now the manger of the family stock contracting business, Loveland Rodeo Company. He is a College Grad with double Masters Degrees and the hardest worker in the company. He has to be for several reasons; not the least of which is he prefers men.Spencer is more than confused because “The Evan Taylor I’ve gotten to know is a man I can’t imagine not being with.”If you love Rodeo Cowboys, Evan’s Luck is for you. Jennah Scott & H Sterling has the start of a Rodeo Circuit that is going to offer a variety of Rides not only for their main characters but for their readers. They have fun secondary characters that added to this story. Evan’s Luck was an easy, enjoyable read for me. I so think you will enjoy Evan’s Luck too. I can’t wait for Book 2.Thanks Jennah Scott & H Sterling & Good Writing

    Evan wakes up the morning of his birthday in bed to yet another nameless “Buckle Bunny”. Afraid of becoming his father, something he's vowed never to do, Evan decides once again he needs a change. It’s time to get his life together and grow up and part of that change comes in the form of his best friend’s younger brother Spencer Quinn. Spencer has always thought of his older brother’s best friend as a womanizer. Everyone on the circuit knows Evan’s time is spent chasing the next buckle and his next conquest just like his late father had. Spencer and Evan could not be more different and while Spencer could never deny his attraction to the man there is no way he would ever act upon it, especially since as far as he knows Evan is straight.After reading the blurb I was extremely excited to read Evan’s Luck. I love a great Cowboy romance. However, while I enjoyed Evan and Spencer and their fight for their HEA/HFN, it wasn't all I’d hoped for. The premise was good, but the book didn't deliver. Evan accepted his newfound sexuality without much question and this made the story less believable. The story reached the end much too easily for me and I was looking for more drama and angst. All in all, it was an entertaining read, and I'm anxious to see what the future holds for these two in future books.3 Stars! *copy provided to Bayou Book Junkie by the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review*

    Original Blog Post: Review Tour & #Giveaway: Evan's Luck ( Riding the Circuit #1) Jennah Scott & H. SterlingReview by: multitaskingmommaMy Rating: 3.5 of 5 Stars Hmm...I'm a little torn on this one. I like Evan's Luck a lot, but not enough to give it a four stars although I can honestly say, I am looking forward for more of this series. The premise is not original, friends to lovers, rodeo, cowboy and horses, angst, and whole lot more, who hasn't read all those before? The execution of this is done well, but it is not well done. I am hoping the next story would go through a more thorough process for truly, I really liked the story of Evan and Spence. It has all the right romantic thrills that caught me giggling silly and a moronic smile on my face throughout the read, but then again I met some things here which jarred my reading process and found myself having to go back several pages to make sense of the why and how. If it were not for the last part, I would most have definitely given this a 4.5. Yes, this story is that romantic and good.Which is why, I will cut this review short. One, I don't want to spill and spoil, and two, I really do recommend this to those who love a fast, romantic read to while the afternoon coffee or tea away. Yes, this read is meant for those who love a good romance and boy, was Evan a romantic loon when it came to Spence.

    I’m a big fan of cowboys so Evan’s Luck looked like a good read. The plot sounded cool as well but something in the execution just didn’t work. I didn’t dislike the book, instead it was just kind of meh.The authors did well in creating the characters. Not only are the main characters, Spencer and Evan, original and likable, but the supporting characters are as well.The story of a man trying to make up for his slutty ways with his best friend’s brother is an interesting one and there are parts of their relationship I liked. However, it felt rushed at times, especially Evan going from horny goat to dedicated lover. Also glossed over was Evan’s preference of men over women.There were sweet parts of the romance, such as when Evan and Spencer have a quiet lunch together. But there were scenes that didn’t feel as sweet, such as some of the sex scenes.Seconds before his orgasm rocketed through his body, Evan shoved a finger into his ass.Shoved? That doesn’t sound enjoyable or romantic at all.Though it didn’t really work for me, I’m sure there are many readers who will enjoy the short, sweet romance.http://www.prismbookalliance.com/2016...

    This was my first time reading anything by Jennah Scott and H. Sterling and I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed this sweet story. Jennah Scott and H.Sterling has given us a story that will suck us in and keep us there from start to finish ,and then will leave us wanting more from these authors. The characters are well written and we were given a good sense of their personalities by the authors .This is Evan Taylor's and Spencer Quinn's touching story. Evan's a womanizer and he's always takes advantage of the buckle bunnies, their the women who always hangs out at the rodeo's waiting for the cowboy's .It's his birthday and he really wants to change , he doesn't want to turn into his father who he hates. So he decides to set his sights on Spencer,who's his best friends little brother.But Spencer can't stand Evan or anything he standsfor .But Spencer is shocked when Evan lays a kiss on him ,but Spencer just can't deny his attraction to Evan after that. Will Spencer want Evan and will Evan get Spencer to love him? The secondary characters are fun and lovable and makes this story flow smoothly,they just add to this story.I could tell you more about this touching story ,but that would spoil it for you . I highly recommend that you read this touching story ,you won't be disappointed.

    Evan's Luck was a good, quick read without a lot of angst. The story moves quickly and did keep my attention through the whole book. I liked both main characters, Spencer and Evan, and even though the story is not that long, I still got a good sense of the characters' personalities. Evan is a bit flirty, and is at a turning point in his life where he wants to make changes-something he's said before but never really stuck with. Spencer is dedicated, smart and a bit hesitant with Evan. I think they do make a good pair, though a longer story would have served to help better develop the relationship.My only beef with Evan is the point at which the only real drama enters the story, since I felt he flew off the handle way too fast without talking things out with Spencer instead. Personally, I thought Spencer was more than gracious with his reaction, and he showed a lot of patience and understanding with Evan.Evan's Luck was a 3.5-star read for me, and is a good book for a quick read that will make you smile. I'm hoping to see more of Evan and Spencer in the future to see where their relationship heads as they both grow in their professional roles. Recommended for M/M romance fans 18+ for adult language and some M/M sexual content.

    From the blurb you gather that Spencer is coming home to run his father’s business. He’s graduated and ready. Spencer is actually a really wonderful guy and I liked him immediately!Evan is a womanizing, rodeo riding cowboy. But, he wants to change his ways. He doesn’t like the life he’s living and when he sees Spencer, and feels all the feels, he wants it more than ever. Trouble is he has to convince Spencer and Spencer’s brother he’s a changed man.This is a sweet romance. I mean cowboys hello! There isn’t actually a lot of conflict in this story. There were many times I thought we’d venture into great romantic suspense but it just never happened. In actuality I’d label this story in the fluff category as there wasn’t any serious drama, angst, or suspense. Fluff is great if that’s what you love to read.In Evan’s “reinvention” I found he wasn’t really thinking beyond himself. But, I realized this is new to him. He doesn’t know what he’s doing. It’s like fumbling in the dark. I gave him a pass for that but it did affect the feel of the book for me. All in all this is a sweet love story. Though entertaining I felt slightly off at the end. Something incomplete. I can’t put my finger on it.

    *copy provided to Bayou Book Junkie by the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review*Evan's a womanizer, always taking advantage of the buckle bunnies hanging around the rodeo. It's his birthday, and he's decided he wants to change. He doesn't want to end up like his father, whom he hates. He sets his sights on his best friend's little brother, Spencer. Spencer despises Evan and everything he stands for, but when Evan lays a kiss on him he can't deny he's attracted to Evan. I loved the premise of this book, and the blurb made me want to dig right in, but the execution didn't work for me. While the writing was good, the story moved too fast and didn't feel realistic. I wish the author had stretched the out the courting/getting to know one another portion of the story, so it would have felt more like a natural progression, and not so rushed. Truthfully, neither of the main characters were all that likable, and the author didn't redeem them enough to make me like them. This was a fast paced and steamy story, with a gorgeous cover, that just needed to be fleshed out a bit.Even though I didn't enjoy it, doesn't mean others won't.

    Spencer has returned from college ready and is learning to take over his father's business when he retires. Evan is ready for a change in his life. He just had a birthday and is tired of waking up with a different woman every day. He is unsatisfied and ready to find someone and decide his future, knowing he won't be able to ride the rodeo forever. When Spencer shows up all grown up feelings come forth Evan didn't know existed. Now he has to prove to Spencer and, SPencer's brother which is his best friend that he can be the man Spencer needs , not some screwed up, playboy cowboy.Reading the blurb, this story had so much promise. I love a good cowboy book, especially the rodeo, rough and tumble type. I was a little disappointed. Don't get me wrong. The book is very good. It is a perfect sweet romance where the bad boy tries to change and win over the man he wants. There just was no real conflict or action to the story. I did enjoy it and am curious to see what book two holds.If you like cowboys and a sweet romance you should like this.I was given a free copy for an honest review.

    There is nothing better than a cowboy. Except for two cowboys. What makes it even better is when they overcome fear and self doubt to be together.Evan is the stereotypical womanizing jackass...or so it seems. Spencer is the all around great guy who has it all...or does he?This is the journey of two guys who realize they are missing the most important part of happiness. Someone to love and call their own. What I enjoyed most about this journey (this may seem weird) was the fumbling and stumbling Jennah allowed us to witness. One step forward two steps back for these cowboys. She showed that love requires work...lots of work. It's not all sunshine and flowers. Thankfully Evan and Spencer find out that hard work really does pay offI was lucky enough to receive this as a gift in return for a honest review. This has been one of the best reads I've had in awhile and I look forward to more.

    This is a heartfelt story of two totally different men who find love. Evan was a rodeo bronco rider who has been known for being a straight player with women. But he is realizing that he is not happy and wants to change the way he is. Evan has known Spencer Quinn since they were kids. Spencer's brother, Ross, is Evan's best friend. On the circuit one weekend, he sees Spencer, who is charge of most of the things on his dad's ranch, including the prize rodeo animals that go on the rodeo circuits. Evan is very much attracted to Spencer and to Spencer's surprise Evan kisses him right out in public. Now Spencer has heard all the rumors of Evan as a player and shuns him, pushing him away. Will Spencer see the real, new Evan? Can they work it out between them and see some kind of future. A Great Read. Highly recommend it.
