Mandy Morgan swore she’d never step foot in Texas again after Beau Gentry left her for life on the rodeo circuit eight years before. He once promised he'd love her forever. But he'd abandoned their love for the rodeo and she hadn't seen him since. Now she's back in Texas. Her uncle’s heart is failing and Mandy has to convince him that surgery will save his life. She never dreamed the first thing she’d see when she stepped off the plane would be her biggest nightmare...the one man she’d never stopped loving. Beau Gentry had the fever for two things: the rodeo and Mandy Morgan. But for Beau, loving Mandy was complicated by his father’s vendetta against her uncle and a promise he'd made to an old friend. Hank Promise, Mandy's uncle, was more like a father to Beau than his old man had been. The hardest thing Beau had ever done was leave Mandy behind for the rodeo. He can still see the bitterness and hurt on her face. It has killed him all these years to think Mandy had forgotten him...maybe even in the arms of another man. But now they’re both back in Texas, and Beau's going to do all he can to win back her love....

Her Heart for the Asking Reviews

    Silly..Eight years, eight years, eight years. Those two words were said 35 times, according to my iPad, in this 182 page story. I guess Ms. Mondello thought her readers were just too dense to remember that Beau and Mandy were apart that long so she felt the need to repeat it again and again.And Mandy is still mad at him for leaving her when she was 16? Really? She’s mean and hateful at every turn, until 75% of the story, and she’s still acts like she 16. You’d think that in eight years she would have a more grown up attitude. This was a G-rated book. No sex and no swearing, no OMG moments, no nothing. Just a simple love story. I’m probably done with Ms. Mondello. As to the narrator: Love, love, love Eric G. Dove. He does a fantastic job when he reads BUT not even Eric could help this book that much.

    I'm about two thirds of the way through, and the thing that sticks with me the most is that the author has great potential..IF she found a competent editor! There's random words thrown in sentences throughout the book, misspellings, grammar mistakes, etc. It's a great story, and she's very good at describing scenes to make you feel as though you are there. That is all thrown off by the appearance of errors just when you're really getting into it.I haven't looked at the other reviews, I hope a lot of other people caught this as well. Please, Mrs. Mondello.. find a better editor (or even a friend that will look over your manuscripts for you) and I will be back to read more!

    No suspense... No 'build up' to anything... No steam... You do get a HEA, but pretty blah, in my opinion. I like this author but lately I'm becoming bored with her books. :(

    Mandy was madly in love a branco rider & cowboy Beau at sixteen. They had met at her uncle & aunt's ranch that she went to every summer from the age of 7. She went with Beau to a few of his rodeo gigs & love it. Mainly she just loved being with him since she loved him with all of her sixteen year old heart. Beau was 4 years older & branco riding was in his blood like it had been in Mandy's uncle's who trained Beau. So, all that summer of her sixteenth year she talked to him about her hopes & dreams of the future & yet at the same time running away with him when he was leave that same summer. Beau made a decision that he couldn't let her do that. So, he tells Mandy he doesn't love her, never did & was not taking her with him. She was crushed. Her world felt like it was coming to an end. As much ad she loved her aunt & uncle she could not go back to the ranch. Nine years have passed when she gets a call from her mother says she must drop everything & go check on her uncle something is not right. She says she can't since now she is working for her hard Ass dad who she is always trying to win his approval. Then her mom says those dreaded words no child likes to hear no matter how old you are..."I'm not asking you I'm telling you." What could a girl do. When her flight ends guess who's there to pick her up? Oh yeah! Life is about to change for ever for everyone. What a great short read story highly recommend. Several twist & turns.

    One of my favorite themes in romance has to be the one about second chances. There's just something about them, ya know? This is probably the reason why I enjoyed reading about Mandy and Beau so much.If you love cowboys, you'll definitely love Beau. He's sexy, wild, passionate about what he likes and loves. And I could really see he truly loved Mandy, enough to sacrifice himself to keep her safe. That's one of the reasons I liked him. The other one is that he is a man of his word. He made some promises to Hank, Mandy's uncle, and he never broke them. Besides that, he is funny.Mandy never really got over Beau. She might think she did, but she really still loves him. She has some hurt bottled up inside, not just over Beau, but her family also. I felt like she would to... explode or something. I don't know, I was expecting her at some point to scream, kick, yell, whatever. But she didn't act like a brat, she acted like an adult the whole time and I respected her for that. She sacrificed herself and her dreams to work for her father, a job I don't really think she wanted or enjoyed.I loved the fact that it wasn't some "oh, we've been here before, let's hook up again for old times' sake" kind of story. Both Mandy and Beau had some growing up to do before getting back together and they both needed to say and hear some things.I really enjoyed reading Her Heart for the Asking and I can't wait to read the other books in this series. You should try it out, the book was good.

    I really liked this book but there are a few things missing for me. First it's just a lot more chaste that what I usually read there are a few kisses but that's it. When they got caught in the storm I was thinking this is it they are gonna be stuck and sparks will fly and I was very disappointed when it didn't happen. There's just nothing in here to convince me they are really in love it feels like a lot is missing, they just don't spend that much time together everything that happens just comes out of the blue there's no build up to anything just bam there it is. That aside I do love the story line and characters enough that I just might buy the next book in the series. Side note in case Ms. Mondello reads reviews please get a proofreader, the random extra words and things don't bug me as much as they do others my brain just kinda skips over them but a good proofreader and editor would be a really good idea.

    While I liked the characters and the plot isn't bad either, the story didn't have much sexual tension. That can be there even if the story is clean, which this one is. The hero and heroine only a couple of kisses that lacked any fire. There just wasn't much depth to this story and it's not because it's short. The second chance romance can be a great one for a novella, but this one just lacked any spark. I will say the book is free of grammatical errors, and the pacing is good. It's an easy book to read in one afternoon. If you enjoy super, clean western romances, then you will enjoy this one. Happy reading!

    Nice story but no sexI like sex in my romance. I've outgrown sweet stories PG13.That disappointment aside, the story was interesting. I am not hooked enough to finish the series though.

    A lady returns to the ranch where she spent summer holidays, because her uncle is ill and has asked her to visit. The family background includes a lot of tension and unhappiness among various relatives so this has overspilled into her life and she is not looking forward to the trip. I did think that the lady spends far too much time and effort thinking and talking about how she dislikes and refuses to converse with or spend time with the young man who collects her from the plane. This part seemed very padded. Also if it's that hard to make ends meet ranching, and the town is closing businesses, would it not be sensible to explore options - besides the standard one of selling land for housing? No mention of the bugbear of fracking which is providing some weary ranchers with returns. How about trying to rear animals organically, rear alpacas for wool, train champion horses, run a nature reserve and dude ranch, design websites online from the ranch house? Other romances are far more creative. The outcome has some surprises for our characters which are well considered but the no-surprise romance falls apart for me as they don't discuss how they'll manage to keep earning or whether she'll return to marketing in the city. This is a very emotional story which will suit some readers more than others. This is an unbiased review.

    I enjoyed this story very much too. It is about Mandy Morgan and Beau Gentry. They were childhood sweethearts. He had promised to always love her; but he had suddenly upped and left her for the rodeo. Told her he didn't love her. She was just 16; but she had kept the hurt and pain all these years. However as much as she tried she never could get past the pain of their break up. However it wasn't that Beau didn't love her it was the fact that their were secrets about Mandy and her Uncle Hank Promise that he had promised to keep, mainly because he didn't want Mandy hurt. However eight years later they are brought back together after her Uncle Hank Promise is diagnosed with Heart Failure. They find they each had never really stopped loving the other.It is amazing how long people can hold onto hurt feelings. This book is kind of about that. Also, its about the problems that are caused by keeping secrets. Secrets don't always stay secret.

    .The characters were likeable, the content was captivating, and the story moved at a good pace. It was clean, sometimes difficult to find in a romance story. Forgiveness is a big step, but must be taken before these two can overcome pain from the past.Happily, I only remember 1 typographical error that stood out! However, there were some words that were used incorrectly.Ending was abrupt after a great lead in..

    This was a good story and had good potential but it never pulled me in, I had a hard time finishing this book. It jumped around a lot and I guess we were suppose to fill in between the lines. I felt like the author had a deadline and just hurried to get this book finished and the editing was not so good either lots of mistakes.

    SurprisedThis is not my normal reading usually it has a military background or something to do with lots of action mystery and suspense. So I was very surprised at how much I enjoyed reading this and I'm looking forward to reading 2nd book in this series

    As always, Lisa Mondello delivers a romance that has a great story line, sweet and sexy moments, total delivery of a good book. I know when I pick up something she has written that 2 things are guaranteed, 1) that I am going to ignore the laundry so I can just read and 2) I won't be disappointed.

    Not a rodeo fan. As far as I understood the wild horse, Beau just couldn't resist getting on wasn't supposed to be a future rodeohorse? So why just get on it for "fun" without preparing the poor horse and getting thrown off?

    Great bookI only give five stars to books that I would read again. This is one I of them. It is well written, romantic and has enough intrigue to keep the reader interested.
