Review: Down Home Cowboy (Copper Ridge #8) by Maisey Yates
Down Home Cowboy: A Western Romance Novel (Copper Ridge) - Maisey Yates

 

 

 

 

This Texas cowboy has come home to Copper Ridge to put down roots…but will he risk his heart again?

Asked where he'd be at this point in life, Cain Donnelly would have said anywhere but Copper Ridge, Oregon, living with his estranged brothers. But since his wife abandoned them, both he and his daughter, Violet, are in need of a fresh start, so he's back to claim his share of the family ranch. Local baker Alison Davis is a delicious temptation, but she's also his daughter's mentor and new boss. That makes her off-limits…until she offers a no-strings deal that no red-blooded cowboy could resist.

Alison has worked tirelessly to rebuild her life, and she won't jeopardize her hard-won independence. Especially if it also complicates Cain's relationship with Violet. But with Cain offering a love she never thought was possible, Alison has to find the courage to let her past go…or watch her future ride away for good.

 

 

 

3 ½ ★

 

This is the 8th book in the Copper Ridge series but it can be easily read as a standalone. I have not read any of the previous books and did not feel like I missed something. Which is always good. Most know, that I enjoy Cowboy books among Rockstar and Hockey books , when it comes to romance books, so it was really way to like this book. This was the first book I read by Maisey Yates but I plan on reading more of her books. I liked the writing style it had a nice flow to it and was easy to follow and get lost in. I did enjoy the story and the characters for the most part, some parts were a bit annoying but nothing major that made me want to stop reading. I l liked the back story of the characters and it made us really see why they are the way they are. While most of the story was easy to predict it still was very enjoyable to read. I enjoyed all the side characters as well even if I did not know that from the precious books. I thought they had just the right amount of page-time not too much or little. Overall. Great read and looking forward to read more by this author.

I rate it 3 ½ ★

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Maisey Yates lives in rural Oregon with her three children and her husband, whose chiseled jaw and arresting features continue to make her swoon. She feels the epic trek she takes several times a day from her office to her coffee maker is a true example of her pioneer spirit. In 2009, at the age of twenty-three Maisey sold her first book.

Since then it’s been a whirlwind of sexy alpha males and happily ever afters, and she wouldn’t have it any other way. Maisey divides her writing time between dark, passionate category romances set just about everywhere on earth and light sexy contemporary romances set practically in her back yard.

She believes that she clearly has the best job in the world.

Dark and fabulous
A Cowboy's Home (Montana) (Volume 3) - RJ Scott

This is, without a doubt, the darkest of the Montana books so far. If The Rancher’s Sonwas at times hard to read, this story made me want to read with my eyes closed at times. Justin broke my heart time and again. The hopelessness of his situation, and his determination to not endanger his family and friends, his certainty that he doesn’t deserve to be loved or that he’s incapable of feeling an emotion like love ever again; all of it made my heart ache because it was so very understandable. And yet, through all of Justin’s pain, while he’s fighting doubt and feelings of guilt and inadequacy, the one thing that keeps him grounded and stops him from falling apart altogether—or giving up and dying for that matter—is the presence of Sam. With Sam’s fingers in his hair, Justin can go on for another hour, another day.

 

So yes, this book made me feel all the feels, even if they were dark emotions for a large part of the book. They couldn’t be anything else. Nobody goes through what Justin has been forced to endure only to shrug it off again. So while I’m no good with angst and found it hard to live in Justin’s head at times, it all made perfect sense and I found myself grateful that the author had not given a miracle ‘love heals all’ sort of resolution to Justin.

 

In the two previous books we got to know Sam as a flirtatious and cheeky chap. This book shows there’s a lot more to the man. Underneath his lighthearted attitude hides a painful past he can’t completely shake. And that is probably the reason he is so good for Justin. Sam is not inclined to discuss his personal history with others and is willing, up to a point, to accept the same from Justin. When he does insist on answers it is because he thinks Justin needs to give them rather than a result of a personal need to know. All he knows is that he feels a connection to the man who was all but dead when he found him.

 

I’m not going to reveal exactly what Justin went through and had to do just to stay alive and keep himself from completely losing his mind. All of that should be revealed, as it is in this book, slowly and by Justin himself. Suffice to say that while there were moments when I wanted to shake him and tell him to just trust Sam and relax already, I spent most of my reading time wanting to wrap him up in my arms and keep him safe.

 

Overall this was an at times very hard to read, heartrending but ultimately fabulous and very satisfactory story that kept me on edge for longer than I’m usually comfortable with, only to lead me to the happy but not too perfect ending it needed. I can’t wait to read book four and spend more time with all of the Montana gang.

Review: A Cowboy's Home (Montana #3)
A Cowboy's Home - R.J. Scott

I really enjoyed book 2, and I couldn’t wait to read the next book to find out what happened to Justin.

There were parts I really enjoyed, but somehow the pacing of this story felt off. The first 60% Justin is [either unconscious or delirious from a high fever. (hide spoiler)] There is practically no relationship development at that time. And after that everything gets solved so fast I couldn’t keep up.

I really did like Sam and Justin together, and what small romance we got was good and sweet.

I wasn’t really happy with the fact that Justin kept to himself what happened all those years ago. I got that he wanted to protect Adam, but I didn’t like that it never came out (not even at the end of this book). I was also pretty shocked to learn what did in fact happen with Adam when I started this book. I kind of wanted Adam and Ethan having to deal with this in their own book. Now I felt like things with Adam weren’t all that solved (since he didn’t get back his full memory), even though his book was long over.

I still liked this and I was happy to see Justin have his happy end, but on the other hand, it could have been a great book and not just a good one. It was a bit all over the place.

If you’ve read the second book you will want to read this, since you’ll find out what happened to Justin, and to Adam from book 2.

Review: A Cowboy's home (Montana #3) by R.J. Scott
A Cowboy's Home - R.J. Scott

Yeah, I enjoyed this series very much. Great plot and character development.

Adam and Justin had been missing for 12 years. Been torn away from their homes and family.
Adam was found in previous book and left with a big memory loss. What happened to him and Justin during all these years. Last book ended with a quick peek of Justin.

This installment starts that Justin is hurt and has come home to Crooked Tree, not to his family but in the envirement of his home and he expects to die, peacefully knowing he has kept his whole family safe for all these years. Sam, owner of the ranche's restaurant finds him in a cabin and insists geting help for Justin.

And so the big discovery of Justin starts. Justin, afraid of letting go of his fears, trying to trust again. Sam grounds him, sooths him, is the barrier between him and his family when the emotions get too high....

“I need you,” Justin said, his lips only inches away from Sam’s own. “To make things right in my head, to balance my life, to be my everything, to give me hope.


The romance was not that consuming as the other installments but geeez the emotions. What Justin went through. My heart was breaking for him.
Worked perfectly for me. Sam and Justin were perfect for each other.

 

 


I'm happy to learn that there will be another installment.

Justin had found something in his heart beside the compassion he'd thought gone forever.
