Publisher's Summary

A fist fight, a snowstorm, a stolen kiss in the barn and a second chance at love.

Ford Nixel has two law offices, two fancy condominiums, and all the right connections. In short, he has everything he wants.

The last thing he needs is his Uncle Ty's stake in the Leaning N, a ranch that's been in the family for generations. Ford hasn't even been to the ranch in over a decade, not since he left his boyfriend Stoney behind and headed back to college alone.

Ford arrives at the Leaning N to find Stoney, now a single father, right where he left him. A fist fight, a snowstorm, and a stolen kiss in the barn later - Ford knows none of the heat between them has dissipated.

Fun way to experience this western love story

I think this book has just a few too many people and a few too many story threads to work really well.

BA Tortuga excels at giving us “real” people with strong “country” backgrounds in rural setting. In this case, Colorado, on a ranch.

Geoff, the chef (ha-ha) absolutely steals the show as the most interesting character in this story, but he’s not one of the MCs, unfortunately.

While I thought Ford got the shaft from his uncle and Stoney, he didn’t much move me as a character. I also think Stoney needed to have done more to earn Ford’s forgiveness than what we saw.

I’m a fan of the author’s unique, more stream-of-consciousness writing style, but this one seemed a bit all over the place. There were a few too many characters and side stories and the main romance sort of got lost in the shuffle.

I’m not a big fan of “second chance romances” but I like single-father stories and Quartz is a good kid. The cowboy part will definitely be attractive to some readers and, obviously, fans of the author will want to check this out.

I like BA’s The Release series better, but this wasn’t a bad read, and it has a lovely epilogue – which I adore.

Audio

UGH! First crack out of the bag: it’s pronounced like the metal – lead – Leadville, not like the verb – to guide (leedville). Sorry, but that bugs me. John Solo’s accent on the Spanish words aren’t great either. But, I like his female voices, though. In general, I like his “Western” accent. He’s got a lovely slow drawl for Stoney. Quartz’s voice is… okay. It’s hard to do children and he makes a respectable attempt. Ford and the many other “cowboys” are all voiced well. I think Geoff is hysterical and I like the voice he chose for him.

I think that this is a great way to experience this story, and to me, made it more fun. The author’s dialog is her best feature and John’s narration showcases this. There are so many characters and John does a really nice job of differentiating them all. His voice is easy to listen to and he has a great sense of timing and emotion.

Good story BUT narration can make or break it

narrator makes up good voices for TY and is okay for Stoney. But Fords voice is cringy. Takes me out of the story. Something sounds so... ugh I don't even know... phony. Doesn't sound like someone who grew up on a ranch but in the middle of a city who wears loafers and has a giant grin on his face as he goes to the mailbox, then complains that his neighbors garbage cans are to far from the curb before he blushes and gets offended when he hears a swear. a douche! he sounds like a douche.

Nice story of second chances

A realy enjoyable story of love and cowboys and the getting together with a lawyer and there is a lovable young lad in the mix and it's all held together by the narrator who with the texan drawl makes it perfect 🥰
