Kenleigh Briggs suffered debilitating depression at the age of twelve after losing both parents in a tragic house fire. Her aunt assumed guardianship and forced Kenleigh to learn how to horseback ride. She soon developed a bond with the horses that helped her work out and deal with her depression.

Seven years later, young Kenleigh is now a sophomore at the University of Texas, San Antonio.  During summer break, she arrives at Serenity Falls, a horse ranch devoted to helping children with disabilities learn to ride. She loves watching the kids build the same healing bonds with the horses that she did. She really finds satisfaction in paying it forward. 

Wesley Adams, the son of the ranch’s owners, is a professional bull rider who lives in Dallas.  With his blond hair, Caribbean blue eyes, and tattooed muscular body, he is the epitome of every woman’s dream. Wesley is good guy, but he harbors a past he's not proud of.

Kenleigh has learned to take life head on. Content with the way her life is going, Kenleigh never expected Wesley. He takes Kenleigh on the ride of her life, but will she accept him faults and all? As Kenleigh and Wesley discover a love like they have never known, will they also discover the best parts of life they are missing?

Words cannot express how attached to this book that I have become. I waited for like what seemed forever to get to read it, and it was completely worth the wait to me. I came into Serenity Falls expecting the same cookie cutter romance, but I was surprised by something completely different. Kenleigh Briggs is not your typical girl, a traumatic experience in her past lead her to want to help kids who are disabled, suffer from depression or other developmental disorders. Instead of spending the summer after her Freshman year of college partying she works her second year as a volunteer at Serenity Falls. Then there is Wesley "Wes" Adams the sexy, blue-eyed, Bull Riding Champion, who has returned home after battling his own demons of getting caught up in a celebrity lifestyle.

Both Kenleigh and Wes are each damaged, and hurting in their own ways, but through each other they begin to see that life is about more than pain, that together they can have what they have been missing in life, that they can both be happy with the person that completes them. Of course things aren't always that simple and in one scene my heart goes from being completely happy to being ripped out and stomped on by some cowboy boots with spurs! I was completely gutted, and ugly cried for what seemed like hours. Will two broken, wounded souls find their happily ever after or will fear end it before it even starts? These questions will be answered when you read Serenity Falls.

In the end, Serenity Falls is a heart warming, emotional love story where two lost souls find each other and with each passing day they piece each other back together. Finding a love neither think they deserve or thought they would ever find… an all consuming love. This book evoked every emotion imaginable, and had me hooked from the first chapter. Serenity Falls stole my heart and hasn't let go.
