Rancher and single father Tripp Montgomery is a master at French braiding and princess tea parties. He's also the most eligible bachelor in Cheyenne, Wyoming. So when he stumbles upon a flashy, sexy city girl, he knows two things: 1) she's a walking disaster, and 2) he needs to stay far, far away.
But she needs him more than he wants to admit…
Charlotte Gram knows what it's like not to be wanted. She's in Cheyenne for the summer to help her grandmother heal after surgery, but the farmhouse "chores" are proving much harder than she thought. If her day couldn't get any worse, the sexiest man she's ever seen strolls up to save the day...
...and he definitely doesn't seem happy about it.
I think I'm becoming a fan of cowboys! This is a first read of Joya Ryan for me and I like her writing style. This was a shorter read but a perfect length for the story.
I was worried I wasn't going to like Charlotte. She's a city girl heading to the country to help her grandma's farm while she recovers from ankle surgery. Usually a city girl attempting farm work is disastrous. I really liked that the author gave her a backbone to learn the work and accomplish it successfully. Her use of YouTube videos to learn how to do things was hilarious and brilliant.
I loved almost everything about Tripp. He was a great single dad, very protective of his daughter. When he wasn't trying to keep Charlotte away from his daughter, he was charming and hot. I can't really blame him for trying to keep Gracie from falling for random woman, so he gets a pass for that. When he failed keeping them apart, the interactions with Charlotte and Grace were adorable.
Overall a shirt, cute and fun read. ARC provided by NetGalley.
This is book one in Tempting the Rancher series and it features rancher, Tripp Montgomery and city girl, Charlotte Gram. This is a fun, sizzling romance with a sexy cowboy and his adorable daughter. I know this is a romance but I think the relationship between Charlotte and Tripp's daughter Gracie stole the show.
This book has a great story line that never got boring and a fabulous cast of characters. I can't wait until book 2 comes out.
Loved this story! I have so many adjectives running around my brain to describe Reed Montgomery. Sweet, sexy, rugged, sexy, loving....and did I mention sexy??? He's a single dad running a ranch with the help of his two friends (yep I see more awesome cowboys in the future!). That pretty much takes up all his time so dating isn't high on his must do list. Yet when he meets city girl Charlotte Gram in town he knows he needs to make time just this once. One amazing night is all they get, or at least that's what they think until Reed finds Charlotte talking to his daughter and learns that Charlotte is in town for the summer helping her grandmother and Reed's neighbor after surgery. Looks like more than the weather will be heating up this summer!
I highly recommend this one!
