Jocelyn Garrity was not having a very good day. In fact she’d not been having a very good five years. Dead husband, teenage son who hated her, boss who thought he was god’s gift to vaginas, astronomical student loan debt and almost as astronomic orthodontic bills. Not to mention a sleep deficit she’d never make up even if she slept from now until the end of the decade.
And, this just in, a flat tyre. With the stubbornest set of wheel nuts she’d ever had the misfortune to tangle with.
What was your favorite part of writing for the American Extreme Bull Riders Tour series?

Where did you get the inspiration for this book?
My inspiration really came via Troy, I knew I wanted him to be a bit of a man-whore. The guy on the circuit who’s always flirting and getting lucky and I knew at the root of all that was a terribly damaged guy with an awful childhood culminating in a brush with juvie. So essentially he’s a really reckless guy with little regard for his own life. I didn’t know anything about my heroine other than she was going to be one of the few women who’d ever said no to him. Then, late last year, Kelly Hunter and I met up in Sydney to watch an Aussie PBR rodeo and were chatting about our characters. After that brain storming session I knew my heroine was going to be an older woman – an ER doctor – a widow, with a teenager who has community and connections and commitments. Someone anchored – the complete opposite to Troy.
Did you have a “dream cast” in mind while writing your story?
As always I had a Pinterest page for my book https://au.pinterest.com/amyandrewsbooks/bull-rider-wip/ This is where most of the Googling hot cowboy pics comes in!
Describe your favorite scene in the book in just one word.
My favourite scene is when Troy is in hospital having his dislocated elbow popped back in by Joss. He’s high on morphine and funny as hell and Joss starts to wonder why the universe keeps throwing this cocky, young bull rider at her.
