When disgraced bull rider Ty Sloane agreed to take a job as foreman at Falcon Ridge Ranch, he didn’t count on having to share his job or his cabin with twenty-one-year-old rising star barrel racer Maybelle Johnson. She tests his patience by day and drives him to distraction by night, but she’s off limits—too young and innocent for the likes of an ex-con like him.
As far as Maybelle is concerned, Ty Sloane can go jump in a lake. The cocky bull rider is a thorn in her side, both at the ranch and on the road. But he makes her feel things no man has ever made her feel, and as she learns about his past, she can’t help but develop a soft spot for him.
When trouble finds Maybelle on the rodeo circuit, Ty puts it all on the line for the sweet young woman who’s captured his heart, even though it may cost him his freedom.

ARC for honest review with no compensation
Ride Hard is book 1 in the new Roughstock Riders series by Tessa Layne and a great way to start this new series! Even catching up with old friends.
Ty Sloan, disgraced bull rider and Maybelle Johnson, a young up an coming barrel racer are a thrown together when he takes a job as foreman on the Falcon Ridge Ranch after being released from prison as part of his parole only to find Maybelle had been given the same job by her Uncle.
What happens next with this May/December couple is about pushing buttons, learning to trust, work as a team, keeping her safe, understanding feelings, staying on the right side of the law and maybe finding their HEA...
Ty and Maybelle’s Story
Ride Hard by Tessa Layne is book number one in the Roughstock Riders series. This is Ty Sloane and Maybelle Johnson’s story.
Ty and Maybelle’s characters are one of a kind. You wouldn’t think these two would fit together but they are ideal for each other. Ty and Maybelle’s journey had some bumps and twists but end up with their HEA.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
A Win in the Money
Ty is an alpha sweetheart! Maybelle is a determined "firecracker." They are so much fun together - opposites, age gap, stubborn and intense attraction make them irresistible. I love them. They are a romance lover's dream couple.
I don't know how Tessa Layne does it. She manages to write incredible stories with characters that are so authenic and likeable. The drama is fresh, interesting and engaging. I am never disappointed is her books!
