Cam Miller has spent his life shouldering responsibility. But now, with his sister off to college, he was ready to live his own life away from Granite Junction, from ranching, and from people who couldn't separate him from the sins of the father.
Too bad it also took him away from the one woman who might have been the right one for him.
Molly Brennan was living her best life as a rodeo trick rider until a failed marriage forced her from the arena. Now she's perfectly fine running her own hair salon and raising her daughter solo. She doesn't need a man, but what could it hurt to indulge in a little no-strings fun with a sexy cowboy?
When Molly realizes she's pregnant, she knows she can do it alone, although she's finding it isn't so easy to let Cam go. Finding himself torn between a woman who feels like home and his need to break free, where will Cam's heart lead him?
The Restless Cowboy
I received a complimentary copy of this book and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
I adored this book. Granite Junction is a spin-off from the Redemption Ranch series. While it is not necessarily to read the prior books, the characters make multiple appearances. Cam was a secondary character in the first book of this series but it is also not required to read BUT I would definitely recommend it as it was a wonderful story.
Cam Miller is finally able to sell the family ranch. He inherited the ranch basically at an early age. His father was still alive but became so depression as the passing of his wife, that he hit the bottle pretty hard. Cam had to learn the ranching business and raise his younger sister. When Cam’s father was coming home one night from the bar, he hit another car and killed a local teenager. He died shortly after going to prison and some town folks transferred their discontent to Cam. Now that Cam’s sister has graduated high school, she is off for culinary training. Cam is now free of the heavy burden of the ranch and can finally move away, eight hours away to Casper, WY. He purchased a leather works business from his mentor.
Right before his going away party, Cam is informed by Molly that she is pregnant with his baby! Molly is a divorced woman with a young daughter, Reilly. Molly’s ex really isn’t in the picture. Molly has raised her daughter on her own and she can raise the new baby as well. She doesn’t need Cam but she thought he needed to know before he left.
This story is one that just draws you in right from the beginning. I fell in love with the characters especially young Reilly. It was written in my favorite dual POV format. That really helped me to get a clearer picture of what the characters were thinking and feeling.
This book is sexy in some parts so I would only highly recommend this to someone over the age of 18.
Just when Cam Miller thinks he’ll make his way out of Granite Junction for good, an accidental pregnancy has him torn between the life he’s finally going to make for himself and responsibilities in a town he wanted to leave in the rear view mirror. I didn’t think I was going to be a huge fan of Cam but he’s definitely my favorite Granite Junction character so far.
I love it when a writer has a strong independent woman as a main character. So many times a character like Molly is written as, not really a weak person, but someone who moans about what life has thrown at her. In this case, Molly has struggled for so long as a single parent that she can’t accept Cam’s love. She just doesn’t trust it to be there long term.
Cam is a man that has always stepped up to take care of of others. He’s stayed in Granite Falls to take care of his sister & make their ranch profitable. Now is supposed to be his time to travel & leave his hometown behind. When a fling with Molly leaves consequences, it takes him a while to accept it. Now he has to show Molly he’s serious.
