 ‘Tripp was treading dangerous water with his daughter’s heart. And he’d never gamble with that.’

We’ve just read another new to us Author and we loved every single minute of The Rancher and the City Girl by Joya Ryan. As always we pick our next read on what kind of reading mood we’re in and this time it was wanting a sweet, fun and sexy standalone without too much drama, and that is exactly what we got. It was fabulous. So well written, so addictive and so swoon worthy! It was such a feel good read! A sexy single dad Cowboy and a sweet and sassy city girl suddenly finding herself deep in country life. We are very excited about this series of standalones!

“I don’t want to bring stress to your situation.”

“Oh, you’re far past that, darlin’. You stress me out exceptionally on a daily basis.”

We fell head over heels in love with Tripp, the luscious cowboy and fantastic dad, friend and rancher; he has all the qualities that make us swoon. Raising his daughter, Gracie on his own with the help of his two best mates he’s wary of letting women in, not wanting his daughter to be hurt again nor his heart broken. So when he meets Charlotte, who looks like a fish out of water in their town, he knows it’s got to be a one night deal only. It just can’t be anything more.

‘Was this how cowboys got their ladies in Wyoming? Lay them out in their truck behind a historic building and eat them for dinner? If so, she could get on board with how things were done around these parts.’

Charlotte has come from the big city to help her injured Grammy. She’s got no clue what’s involved in running a farm but Grammy being the only family she’s got and loves she doesn’t want to be anywhere else until she’s no longer needed. Meeting a sexy cowboy was not part of her plans but she cannot say no to one night of passion with the sexy Stetson wearing stranger. ‘Charlie’ was so adorably clueless but not afraid to muck in. She cut a lonely figure, sweet and likeable, we were rooting for a budding gorgeous romance with her cowboy with scorching heat thrown in!

“Daddy gets grouchy when he’s hungry,” Gracie said to Charlotte.
‘She looked the man over, all six-plus feet of sexy, looking at her like she might be his last meal and he’d die happier for it. “I bet he does,” she whispered.

This story was such a great read and we highly recommend it for readers wanting a couple of hours of pure romance with steamy passion. We absolutely loved it to the point of wanting more not only story but time with the characters too. We have to mention Bo and Cash who live with Tripp, too. They had us in stitches and we look forward to their stories!

“Well, when you decide to be happy all the time, I’ll be here to celebrate with you,” Grammy said.
