Publisher Description

Return to Montana as a tough-talking cowboy meets his match in Jennifer Ryan’s newest Wild Rose Ranch novel.

Ex-Army Ranger Drake McGrath has come home to Montana, locked in a battle with himself, lashing out at those who love him most—driving away his ex-fiancée and alienating his family. But Adria Holloway sees beyond Drake’s tough talk to the raw pain beneath.

Raised with her twin sister Juliana by a neglectful mother at the Wild Rose Ranch, Adria also struggles to put the trauma from her past behind her. To help them both, she makes Drake a shocking deal—a no-strings relationship that’ll help them both face down their demons. Maybe it’s a way for her and Drake to heal each other, one sizzling night at a time…

The heat between them is instant and incredible. But the biggest challenges are yet to come. With Juliana battling her addiction and Drake working on his issues, Adria realizes she can’t save everyone. But Drake and Adria discover love can survive tragedy and loss—and they can have the life they never thought possible if they just hold on.

Wonderful and truly heart wrenching.

First I would say this book deals heavily with addiction and veteran related PTSD I really appreciated the attention,paid to detail of the character Drake’s PTSD. And the effort to express the horrors that our military men and women suffer ,and the time and effort it takes to heal from those invisible wounds.
The subject of addiction is a sensitive one and Jennifer Ryan deals with it so well.
This book draws in the reader and book is nicely written and is a great story.It hits right in the feels. I would recommend it to a friend.

Tough Talking Cowboy

This book had me on the edge of my seat. It is so beautifully written. Ms. Ryan helped us understand what our brave military men/women go through with PTSD. But with the help of a supporting family, therapists, Doctors and the love of a good women anything is possible. Adria needed Drake’s love and support as much as he needed her. Together a powerful love grew.
