Championship bull rider Nick Wilde is the face of Montana Pro Rodeo, with all the acclaim and fans he can handle. But is that enough? Contemplating his next career move, he’s come home to his family’s cherry orchard—and to his childhood crush, helicopter pilot Harper Stone. But Harper’s not quite the sexy, badass girl he once lusted after. Recently widowed, she’s broken in two. Wanting to help her move on, Nick finds himself aching for the kind of stability he never had as a child.
True love comes once if you’re lucky, and Harper already had her shot. An accident took her husband eighteen months ago and left only pain and guilt in his place. Now Nick is waking up her body and heart to everything she might still have to gain…or lose. A second chance is more than she thinks she deserves. But with a man like Nick doing the persuading, maybe it’s time to try.

I truly enjoyed this well written second chance romance.
For Harper, reconnecting with Nick was a second chance at love. Ms. Law crafted a heroine that was sympathetic and strong at the same time. For Nick, not only was his relationship a chance at love, but a chance to realize what he really wanted in life.
Montana Rescue is the second in the Wildes of Birch Bay series, but it is a stand alone effort. The important pieces of the backstory from book one are woven into this book as well so everything makes sense. Harper and Nick are a couple that you can't help but like and cheer for while they deal with their demons. They are a fantastic balance for each other and are surrounded by a fun supporting cast.
I think this is a book anyone could pick up and enjoy, but it would be truly enjoyed by anyone who has also read the first book in the series.
