Single mom Peyton Brooks’s first Friday night out—with adults—in forever isn’t exactly going the way she’d expected. She can line dance at the local dive bar with the best of ‘em, but she can’t shake the feeling she’s completely out of her depth. Then the first man she ever loved walks in the door, bringing chaos, especially since the handsome cowboy’s the father of her daughter. This definitely calls for whiskey…
Ryder Marks’s homecoming isn’t going how he’d planned. After years of working hard and finding success in Alaska, he’d thought returning to Fly Creek, Wyoming would feel different, more triumphant. Instead, he finds a daughter he knew nothing about, a father who still harbors anger and resentment toward him, and a former love he never forgot and who still warms his heart. Now he just has to convince Peyton he intends to stay and be the man she deserves, even if that means letting her go.

The Cowboy's Homecoming Surprise
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Entangled Publishing via NetGalley and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
This was a wonderful read. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story of Ryder and Peyton. Ryder left home for Alaska at 19 as he and his father had a contentious relationship. Ryder wanted to prove that he was worthy of his father's love and his inheritance of Sky Ranch. He doesn't tell Peyton, his girlfriend, or his mother that he is leaving. Unfortunately several days after he leaves, Peyton discovers that she is pregnant. Ryder makes it impossible to locate him in the intervening years. Coming home after 10 years, Ryder discovers that he is a father. The road to Ryder and Petyon's HEA is full of heart-break, tears and strife.
I adored having a dual POV here. Seeing Ryder's thoughts really helped connect me, the reader, to him. The emotions that he goes through really made the story one that kept me glued to my e-reader. I was on an emotional roller-coaster ride with this one. I truly felt one with the characters.
This is a story that I would highly recommend to anyone. Be prepared for possible tears here.
