Title: Driven to Distraction
Author: Cassie Decker
Category: Holiday, Western
Cowboys Wyatt and Brady are competing in a team-roping event in Missoula, Montana’s annual Christmas Eve rodeo. Christmas is Wyatt’s favorite time of year and nothing is going to dampen his holiday spirit, not even his surly, no-nonsense roping partner. They’ve only been riding together for a week, but Wyatt has already secretly fallen head over bootheels for Brady, though it’s painfully obvious Brady only has eyes for the rodeo’s grand prize purse.
When Brady is distracted during a crucial moment in the night’s first roping run and nearly disqualifies them, Wyatt is almost certain he is going to be another of Brady’s many rejected partners. Will Wyatt and Brady be able to sort out their differences and work together to win the grand prize? Maybe, if Wyatt can show Brady that Christmas really is a time for miracles.

Wyatt has been lusting after his new partner Brady, not that there seems to be all that much hope for him with the nonsense attitude of the other cowboy. When Wyatt messes up during a roping event, almost getting them disqualified, he's sure that this will be the end of their partnership, only to discover a few things about Brady instead.
This was a sweet, short read with two likable characters. I really liked the twists the author managed to include in the story, which turned upside down what Wyatt had been thinking before and gave it a bit more depth. Well done, Ms. Decker!
