Sometimes love is right where you left it.

Sadie Hart has a plan: return to her small town of Hope Springs so she can regain her confidence—and bank account—before giving one more shot to her country music dream. The dream that means more to her than anything. The dream she chose over her high school sweetheart, the brooding and sinfully handsome Royce Dixon.

Royce has moved on from his memories of the beautiful Sadie. Now he’s focused solely on running Second Chance Ranch, where he rehabilitates troubled teens through ranch work. But when he needs a new employee and Sadie’s the only one to volunteer, he has no choice but to offer his old flame a job.

Whether riding a horse with the wind in her hair or mucking out the stalls, Sadie can still get Royce’s heart beating like no one else. But Nashville is her dream, and Royce can’t settle for second best.

Second Hand Ranch by Cindi Madsen is a story about second chances at the life and love that one leaves behind for ambitions of fame.  Sadie Hart left her small hometown of Hope Spring, Wyoming for Nashville, for a chance to make it like the country singers whose posters graced her walls in high-school.  Seven years later, out of money and maybe even out of hope, she returns home to regroup before she tries again to make her dream come true and then she runs into him, Royce, the love of her life in high-school and she begins to wonder what dream she really wanted; the dream of becoming a country music star or the dream of working at the ranch side by side with her cowboy Royce.  This book was a 3.5 star read for me and I would recommend it to other who enjoy a good light-hearted cowboy book with a happily ever after.

Royce thought that he got over Sadie Hart years ago.  She broke his heart when she declined his marriage proposal and left for Nashville without a word.  He thought he whole world had fallen apart and he threw himself into his work, taking care of the ranch and the camp like nothing else mattered.  That is until she walked back into his life.  Royce tries with everything in him to not fall for her again, but he fails at every turn.  Remembering the past; her easy smile, her infectious laugh, the way that everything feels right when she is near.  Although he tries to stay far away from her until she up and leaves again, he gives her a job at the ranch and remains indifferent to her presence; or so he thinks.

Sadie is grateful for the opportunity that Royce gave her working at the ranch; she loves being outside, taking care of the animals, being with the kids and of course silently watching Royce and the man that he has become.  Her feelings for him never left her, they were simply buried deep down.

Do Royce and Sadie rekindle their romance?  Do they have their happily ever after?  You will have to one-click this book to find out.

Cindi Madsen sits at her computer every chance she gets, plotting revising, and falling in love with her characters. Sometimes it makes her a crazy person. Without it, she’d be even crazier. She has way too many shoes, but can always find a reason to buy a new pretty pair, especially if they’re sparkly, colorful, or super tall. She loves music, dancing, and wishes summer lasted all year long. She lives in Colorado (where summer is most definitely NOT all year long) with her husband and three children. She is the YA author of DEMONS OF THE SUN & ALL THE BROKEN PIECES, and the adult author of FALLING FOR HER FIANCE, ACT LIKE YOU LOVE ME and CINDERELLA SCREWED ME OVER.
