Wild Horses by B.J. Daniels…Blog Tour Stop & Review


It took only one impusive moment on an empty two-lane highway to cost her everything.

A man’s responsible for his own prosperity—especially if he’s Cooper Burnett, the most determined cowboy in the West. No one knows what he sacrificed to claim a piece of Beartooth, Montana, for himself and his beautiful fiancée, Livie. No one knows what he’s willing to do for love…until a stranger’s twisted vendetta threatens the happy ending they should’ve had long ago.

One fateful mistake isn’t the only secret Livie Hamilton is keeping from her fiancé. Victimized during a treacherous blizzard by a man she thought she could trust, she’s pregnant…but unsure who the father is. With an unknown blackmailer threatening to expose her, she must confess to Cooper and trust he’ll still protect her. But when the truth falls into place, she may lose the only man she’s ever loved—or worse.


My review:

Wild Horses is the first book in author BJ Daniels’ The Montana Hamilton’s Series and kicks off this new series with one of the most suspenseful and amazing stories I’ve ever read. I loved every nail-biting second!

While this story primarily focuses on soon to be married senator’s daughter Livie Hamilton and cowboy and horse trainer Cooper Burnett, there is much more brewing in the small town of Beartooth, Montana.

Cooper never really believed he deserved the beautiful and kind senator’s daughter, Livie. Of course, she did everything she could to convince him otherwise. He was everything she wanted in a man and future husband. He was hard-working, handsome, caring, and loyal. But those niggling feelings were always in the back of his mind. Those feelings led to an argument one evening and Livie leaving the house angry, upset, and as it would turn out, head-on into a situation that would threaten their future together, lead to blackmail, and possibly even threaten the future of her father and his bid for president of the United States.

As is that wasn’t enough on the Hamilton’s family plate, the mother Livie and her sisters thought they lost 22 years ago shows up with no memory of the time she lost with them. Where had she been?  Had she left them and never thought about them for all this time? Do they want to include her in their family again?

Being a wealthy and politically prevalent family, you would think they would be used to people looking for an angle to take advantage of them…or worse, letting jealousy spur plans to ruin them. To an extend, they were. But things have never gotten to this level and when it all comes entirely too close to home and involves old feelings of hatred and jealousy, no one is safe from the evil it brings.

Holy HELL! This book was amazing. Packed with mystery, murder, suspense, envy, greed, and high emotion, I was hooked. Add to that a cast of characters who had my guessing on the extent of their shadiness and I was kept on the edge of my seat from the very first chapter. Author Daniels did a phenomenal job with dropping breadcrumbs along the way that kept me satisfied but still hungry for more. I loved every angle that was introduced and was a nervous wreck for Cooper and Livie and wanted them to get the happily ever after they truly deserved. Adding to that was the sudden reappearance of this long-lost mother and blackmail letters coming from a mysterious man, and I was devouring pages to see what would happen next. I love experiencing a read with that impact!

Now, I can’t give anything away here in regards to how things end up for the entire Hamilton family and with so much packed into this book I certainly don’t want to ruin even one moment for a fellow reader, so you’ll have to grab a copy and see the outcome for yourself (insert evil laugh)

Thank you, Ms. Daniels, for taking this reader on one of the best roller-coaster rides I’ve read. I can’t wait to see what you have in store for us next!
