‘I was too cold. Too hungry. Too tired. I couldn’t afford to get off this line, no matter how much I wanted to.’

Don’t you just love when you start a book and you’ve never read anything by this Author before nor have you got any idea where the story is going to take you?  A book that takes you so completely by surprise you actually have to stop and think why did I not read this sooner and how fast can I go find everything out about this new to us Author. Well this was us when we read The Line by Amie Knight. This story was not what we expected, it was so much more. The synopsis grabbed us but the characters even more so and their story stole our hearts. We love our cowboys but what we love even more is a beautiful love story just like this. Sometimes the best stories are the ones you least expect.

‘It had only been four years, but it could have been an eternity and I’d never forget my cowboy.’

What you put out into the world comes right back; no more so than kindness, respect love and compassion. Do you believe in soul mates? We do, and from page one we knew that this was a romance with two people who without question were fated to be together no matter the obstacles and tragedies separating them.

‘His voice. His stories. They were like listening to the deep timbre base of my favourite song. And I didn’t want to miss a beat.’

Our emotions were all over the place as we learnt of Everly’s story and how she came to be where we met her, we felt overwhelmed with sadness yet inspired by her big heart, her strength and the love she had when she recognised kindness and compassion from an unlikely source. She was a brilliantly written heroine that showed real resilience and gratitude despite the little she’d been given in life.

“You’re so terrified you’re gonna lose them that you’ve already thrown them away, and that’s no way to live, Little Bird.”

Cole is one of the most gorgeous cowboys we’ve ever encountered. He’s all man yet he has vulnerability and a strong sense of empathy that shines through the male ruggedness. A man with passion and heart he sees something in Everly that compels him to look out for her, despite unanswered questions and his reluctance to give up his heart. Until he does give his heart and it is quite simply stunning. There came a point in the story were he wore his heart on his sleeve and we read with tears in our eyes at the beauty of the words. He’s been through a betrayal that crushed his heart so it really would take something incredibly special to put the pieces back in their rightful place.

‘Everly was fireflies and freedom. I couldn’t resist her.’ ‘Everly was the sun. Her light shining on me. Her heat searing through me. Forcing me to wake the fuck up. To live again. And, God, I wanted her sun. It felt so good to stand in it. I couldn’t resist her I never stood a chance. And I didn’t want to anymore.’

We fell in love and were completely captivated by this wonderful story that had everything we love in our romances. We urge you romantics to go pick it up and be swept away by Amie Knight’s words.

“Play me a memory, Peaches.”

THE RANCHER and the CITY GIRL (Tempting the Rancher #1) by JOYA RYAN

Standalone in a series – sweet, sexy and swoony with a gorgeous single Dad!

SYNOPSIS

Rancher and single father Reed Montgomery is a master at French braiding and princess tea parties. He’s also the most eligible bachelor in Cheyenne, Wyoming. So when he stumbles upon a flashy, sexy city girl, he knows two things: 1) she’s a walking disaster, and 2) he needs to stay far, far away.

But she needs him more than he wants to admit…

Charlotte Gram knows what it’s like not to be wanted. She’s in Cheyenne for the summer to help her grandmother heal after surgery, but the farmhouse “chores” are proving much harder than she thought. If her day couldn’t get any worse, the sexiest man she’s ever seen strolls up to save the day…

 ‘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.
