In Deep Trouble (Triple-D Ranch #2) by Terry Odell
In Deep Trouble (Triple-D Ranch) (Volume 2) - Terry Odell

Cecily Cooper is a dispatcher for the Sheriffs Department. She knows all to well of the angst in peoples lives. She has decided to open a pilot program on her brother Derrick's ranch called Healing With Horses. She wants to give deserving people a second chance. She feels that some hard work and responsibility will help turn lives around. 

 

Her first client is 17 year old Grady. Grady has been arrested for shoplifting and is a runaway. He's super smart but doesn't want people to know. He loves to read as well. He has had a rough life. Mom has brought home countless men home until it was almost a revolving door of men. Mom finally married one, yep he has money but he is also a child molester. When Grady turned 17 he ran away. After being arrested his social worker signs him up for Cecily's program. Reluctantly he goes.

 

Bryce Barrett is an Ex- Army Ranger who is a hand at the ranch. He prefers the animals to people but he has a thing for Cecily. It's ore of a love hate relationship though. To his grief Bryce is put in charge of Grady. Being as Grady knows nothing about horses or ranch life Bryce has his work cut out for him. 

 

All is going pretty good until they start finding mutilated cows on the ranch. After they catch the cow killer, Grady goes missing. Trying to find out if Grady just ran away or if he was taken. Cecily and the gang decide to take it upon themselves to find Grady which proves to be dangerous when she is also kidnapped.

 

I really enjoyed this book. It has some romance, some mystery, and some danger. All things I enjoy in a book. There is very little strong language and actually only 2 hot sex scenes and 1 of the 2 are interrupted. 

 

Pamela Almand has done a great job narrating. She carries the story through very well. She lets you feel the emotions portrayed in the book with her voice. She does a great job with the voices for each character as well.

The return
Cracked But Never Broken - Kari Holloway

Damien comes home to the ranch, after military service.  He has to adjust to being home, and all that it entails.  There are just so many changes....

 

Lexi thought he would never come back.  He seemed to like staying away.  What was once a promise now actually may be a possibility.  Only danger lurks....

 

This story caught me off guard!  There is action, humor, heat, and more.  I found that there were some character I really liked, and some I just wanted to off myself!  The main characters are easy to root for, only theirs is a more complicated story.  Fun and quick read.  I give this book a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Fantastic!!
The Last Good Cowboy (Morgan Ranch) - Pe... The Last Good Cowboy (Morgan Ranch) - Pearce Kate

The Last Good Cowboy by Kate Pearce is a phenomenal read.  Ms Pearce has given us a well-written book and furnished it with amazing, lovable characters.  Ry and Avery's story is full of humor, drama with bits of suspense, action and sizzle.  This story has it all. I love the way the author had the story unfold.  I enjoyed reading The Last Good Cowboy and look forward to reading many more books from Kate Pearce in the future.  The Last Good Cowboy is book 3 of the Morgan Ranch Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

 

 

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book that I received from NetGalley.

Good Story and Characters
The Reluctant Cowboy (Morgan Ranch) - Pearce Kate

Chase Morgan has avoided the Morgan ranch for years. When his grandmother calls him home though, he can’t turn her down and takes a much needed break from his job, while trying to convince his grandmother to sell the place. January Mitchell is staying at Morgan ranch, helping with the chores while researching it’s history. She and Chase butt heads while she’s determined to help his grandmother turn the ranch around and he just wants to get rid of it.

This was a pretty straight-forward story about a former cowboy-turned business workaholic coming home and dealing with his ghosts. There were some pretty hot scenes between Chase and January. There wasn’t a whole lot of drama, except for trying to change Chase’s stubborn mind. Pretty good read. I recommend.

Sale Blitz - In A Ranger's Arms
 
No amount of training could’ve prepared him for her.
 
 
 
IN A RANGER'S ARMS
The Men of At Ease Ranch #1
Donna Michaels
Entangled Lovestruck

 

 
No amount of training could’ve prepared him for her.
 
Former Army Ranger Stone Mitchum doesn’t have time for relationships, let alone a one-night stand. He’s too busy running a ranch that helps transition veterans back into society. But when his curvy new tenant falls into his arms, his libido snaps to attention.
 
Jovy Larson has four weeks to prove she’s worthy of taking over the family business. She’s up for whatever ridiculous task they throw at her, but selling vegan food to a bunch of cowboys in cattle country, Texas? Not half as tough as fighting her attraction to her sexy, surly landlord.
 
 
Good thing she’s stubborn. Then again, so is he…

 

 
 
 
 

Excerpt:

 

Amusement danced in the stranger’s eyes, and the smile that had threatened claimed a set of kissable lips she had the sudden urge to taste. Her heart rolled in her chest. Dammit. He needed to stop doing that or she was never going to catch her breath. An instant later, his gaze dropped to her mouth, and what little air was left in Jovy’s lungs took a hike, leaving her with a racing pulse and fluttering stomach. No man had ever affected her this way, especially a stranger. But at the moment, she didn’t care. An odd, new, tangible current coursed between them.

 

If the heat entering his gaze was any indication, the stranger felt it, too. Good. She’d hate to be the only one stuck in this crazy-ass haze. The good-looking Texan was hard. Deliciously hard. And dead sexy. Heaven help her, it took all of Jovy’s willpower to fight the impulse to press him onto his back and check his body for injuries…with slow and very thorough precision. That would be foolish. So damn foolish. Need trembled through her like a rampaging cow, but she continued to resist. The urges were so far out of her character she remained stunned.

 

And completely at his mercy. All the cowboy had to do was make a move, one little move, and she would lean forward and accidentally catch his lips with her mouth.

 

Is everyone all right?” An older man approached, rope dangling from his hand…on a tractor?

 

She wasn’t in Pennsylvania anymore.

 

He was a welcome interruption. Her heated, sensitized, need-filled body wholeheartedly disagreed.

 

The cowboy blinked the desire from his eyes before he turned his attention to the newcomer. “Yeah.” He gently pushed the cow back so he could stand. “We’re okay, Skeeter.”

 

Skeeter? There was a name she didn’t hear every day, but it fit the senior citizen’s friendly, weathered face. Her sexy rescuer turned and held a hand out to help her up, but before she could grab on, Lula Belle rushed forward to shove between them.

 

Possessive much?” She scooted backward on her butt.

 

Skeeter chuckled and passed the rope to the cowboy, who quickly fashioned a loop and harnessed the cow. “Don’t mind Lula Belle. The old gal is sweet on Stone.”

 

She smirked. “Never would’ve guessed.”

 

Nor would she have guessed the cowboy’s name was Stone. Although whether it was his first, last, or nickname, it was 100 percent fitting, considering the rock-hard body that had just covered hers on the sidewalk.

 

Still chuckling, the older man held out his hand, and this time, the cow didn’t interfere as he helped Jovy to her feet.

 

Thank you, Skeeter. I’m Jovy.”

 

Welcome to Texas, Jovy.” He smiled and released her hand.

 

She glanced up and down the street. “Are there any other rampaging cows or livestock I need to worry about?”

 

Not unless you count cowboys as livestock.” He winked, then grabbed the rope from Stone. “Come on, Lula Belle. Let’s get you home. I bet Mr. Rawlins isn’t even aware you’re gone.” With a nod and a few hard tugs on the harness, Skeeter led the protesting cow away.

 

She was definitely not in Pennsylvania anymore.

 

Jovy turned, intending to thank the stranger for saving her, but he was busy affixing her dangling sign to the hooks above the door. Without the use of the ladder.

 

Jeez. Just how tall was the guy?

 

Small” was not a word used to describe Jovy’s five-foot-nine-inch frame. Tall. Sturdy. Curvy. Heck, despite her dark hair, she’d even been nicknamed Marilyn by several guys back in her college days. But tiny, delicate, and small were all antonyms.

 

Until now. Compared to this man. He had almost a good half a foot on her, with broad shoulders and muscles bulging under the rolled-up sleeves of his denim shirt. The lean Texan made her feel delicate…and feminine. Not an easy feat.

 

He finished hanging the sign, stepped back, and frowned. “V-Spot Café?”

 

For a small, stupid moment her mind heard G-spot and her body responded with another damn tremor. Bet he knew where a woman’s…

 

Stiffening, she gave her head a small shake to get her mind back on track before thrusting out her hand. “Thank you for catching me.”

 

Warm and strong, his fingers curled around hers and tiny tingles of heat skittered up her arm. She glanced from their hands to his bewildered gaze.

 

That was new.

 

He cleared his throat and released her. “It was nothing.”

 

Unsure if he was referring to his heroic act or the current flowing between, she pushed both thoughts aside. It didn’t matter. She wasn’t staying in Texas any longer than necessary. This crazy, weird attraction was best ignored.

 

Well, I appreciate what you did. Thanks for your help.” She glanced at the shop and shuddered. “Man, my jackass of a landlord would’ve had a cow if that window had smashed. I’m sure he never would’ve believed the cause. Heck, I’m beginning to wonder if he’s even real. He won’t give me a phone number. I have to do all my dealing with him through emails. He even made me come down here a few days early or he threatened to give the place to someone else. Talk about difficult. And strange.” She turned back to face him, noting that the amusement had disappeared from his eyes. “Oh, wow. I take it by your sour expression you’ve had dealings with S.B. Mitchum, too. I bet the S stands for ‘stubborn.’ Or maybe it stands for ‘strange.’”

 

Again, she was alone in her merriment. The cowboy didn’t crack a smile. Nothing. Zilch. In fact, his expression turned as hard as stone. Ah, crap. This was a small town. He probably knew the guy. She sighed. Great. Now she had to backpedal.

 

Well, we’ve all been called stubborn and strange. Even me.” She shrugged. “Speaking of called…we haven’t been officially introduced. I’m Jovy Larson. And you are…?”

 

His chin rose a tick, and he leveled her with a cold gray gaze. “Stone Mitchum. Your jackass of a landlord.”
