The second installment in the “Closed Circuit” series, after The Wildest Ride, follows the fictional reality TV series for another season of fighting, loving, and bull riding. Latine and Black, Diablo Sosa was named for the devil himself, and it was the CityBoyz who rescued him from his anger and made him a rodeo star in the process. As a favor to his old mentor, he agrees to participate in the rodeo reality show, Closed Circuit, despite not being on a bucking bronco in 14 years and now being busy as a full partner at his law firm. Sierra Quintanilla is the Closed Circuit reigning Rodeo Queen and host of the reality show’s second season. With determination and perfection, Sierra, like Diablo, has proven that the face of rodeo does not have to be white to be the best. They are drawn together, yet contractually forbidden from a relationship and will have to decide what matters most.
VERDICT A welcome treat for romance readers with a little country in their step or anyone wishing to take a ride with a cowboy. Fans of the series will delight in another trip to the rodeo.
