An adorable cowboy romance from USA Today bestselling author Cindi Madsen featuring:
•A cowboy hero who's too busy to notice his perfect girl lives next door
•A heroine who is determined to take the path of least resistance
•And a love story the whole town has been waiting years for
Brady Dawson grew up in the Colorado heartland running the Turn Around Ranch with his parents and his brothers. The Turn Around offers safety and rehabilitation for troubled teens, and doesn't leave a lot of downtime, so it's lucky his best friend is the girl next door, Tanya Greer. Everyone tries to label them as more than friends, but they've never crossed that line. Well, except that one time…
Tanya's family's dude ranch isn't attracting a crowd any more. Tanya would love to turn the ranch into a summer riding camp for city kids, but her parents refuse to consider her idea. They still seem to think of Tanya as a kid herself. So when they get an offer from a slick businessman, it looks like they're going to sell. And when Tanya is offered a well-paying job in the city, she knows it's time to forget her dreams for the ranch, and her hopes of being more than friends with Brady.
Brady doesn't want Tanya to go, but he doesn't want to hold her back either. The thought of losing Tanya has Brady's cowboy heart in knots. He realizes he'd better take his own advice, cowboy up, and confess his feelings. He only hopes it isn't already too late.
Best friends wrangle troubled teens, a friendly rodeo competition, and their newfound feelings for one another in Madsen's rowdy second Turn Around Ranch romance (after A Cowboy Never Quits). In Silver Springs, Colo., rancher Tanya Greer falls for her best friend and neighbor, Brady Dawson, but can't find a way to share her feelings. Brady, who helps runs Turn Around Ranch, his family's rehabilitation center for troubled teens, returns Tanya's feelings, but after a botched attempt to make things romantic years ago, he's wary of crossing the line. Tanya's parents still treat her like a child, denying her real responsibility on the ranch, so when she gets a job offer that would require her to relocate to the city, she strongly considers it—and the opportunity forces her and Brady to confront their emotions or risk losing each other forever. Meanwhile, love blooms between bad boy Maddox, the newest teen arrival to Turn Around Ranch, and good girl Harlow, the ranch's youngest employee. Tanya and Brady have a fairly easy transition from friends to lovers, leading the teens' more tumultuous romance to consistently steal the show. Both rollicking and sweet, this is sure to please fans of cowboy romance.
Hope on the Range
I feel like I got a double story, a two for one in this book. It was friends to much more for both couples. Cindi kept the story going steady though and worked both in so well. Really enjoyed this book.
Hope on the Ranch
Enjoyed this book a lot. Hope this story will continue on in a 3rd book to complete the story.
I really enjoyed reading this second book in the Turn Around Ranch series. Tanya and Brady have been best friends, neighbors, and competitors for years. Tanya wants more than friends, but Brady doesn’t have a clue. Brady loves working on the ranch and helping at risk youth. He takes a special interest in their newest resident, Maddox. Tanya wants to start a horse rescue at her parent’s ranch, but her dad shuts her down. When Eric Richmond comes to stay, he has a proposition for her that would take her away from Colorado. She’s seriously considering his offer. Will her parents finally come around or will she leave? Will Brady finally see what’s been in front of him all along or will he lose Tanya? No spoilers so grab your copy and see what happens. I also loved the side love story of Maddox and Harlow, so sweet.
I received an advanced reader copy of this book from NetGalley and this is my voluntary and honest review.
