    Cowboy Romantic Suspense

    Cowboy Tough by Stacy Finz Dry Creek Ranch #2 Jace and Charlotte probably would never have met if her miscarriage had not sidelined her on the road in Jace’s territory. And even though he played good Samaritan they would not have had seen one another again if this that and the other thing had not serendipitously happened to keep them together longer than that ride to the hospital. The reasons he offered her shelter and she chose to accept the shelter make for a good story. Add in the backstory of both, the sons of Jace and both eventually falling for one another and you have a fairy tale HEA come true. Now...what will happen in book 3? Will Sawyer find his sister or will he find a woman of his own or will all of that happen and more? What I liked: * Charlotte/Charlie: beaten but not entirely broken, smart and courageous once she made her move, knows what she wants and reaches out for it, creativity aplenty, a good partner for Jace * Jace: a good father, tied to the land, excellent sheriff, a bit clueless regarding his election campaign, looking toward the future and a good partner for Charlotte * Cash & Sawyer: Great cousins and support characters in the story * Aubrey: a good friend and assistant to Charlotte * The way the story was told * The relationship between Jace, Cash & Sawher * The reality and grim reminder of farms going under and the cost to those who lose their livelihood * The closeness between Jace & Charlotte and how it grew slowly * Travis and Grady – Jace’s children * The series What I did not like: * The abusive boyfriend – he, hopefully, will get what he deserves * The Beals losing their ranch (maybe?) * That politicians can win elections even though they don’t have a clue what to do if/when they win * That I have to wait to read the next book in the series. Did I enjoy this book? Yes Do I want to read the next book in this series? Definitely Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington – Lyrical Shine for the ARC – This is my honest review. 4-5 Stars

    A gentle man, a woman finding herself

    Stacy has another winner with Jace and Charlie’s story. They meet when Charlie is at her lowest point, and Jace can’t seem to help going above and beyond to help the beautiful, sad woman. She ends up staying with him and his boys and amazingly, is the first caretaker Travis and Grady have not united to run off the place. It’s a match made in heaven except for her reticence and the danger that’s lurking. This second book of Stacy’s Dry Creek Ranch trilogy does not suffer from middle-story syndrome; it’s clearly the setup for the third book, cousin Sawyer’s story, but that in no way takes away from Jace and Charlie’s love story. The continuing story arc involves an ongoing mystery, and we get Cash and Aubrey’s wedding here as a connection to the first book. My only small complaint is that with the mystery, there’s not much room for an epilogue, which I found a bit weak. However, the rest of the tale was told with typical Finz style, characters so real and wounded you want to take them home, and relationships that are complicated and difficult and glorious. Supporting characters make the town of Dry Creek come to life. This could be read as a standalone, but it’s better to read Cowboy Up first. Content warning for domestic violence and loss of pregnancy. I received an advance copy in return for my honest review.

    Great Fast Paced Cowboy Romance

    Couldn't put it down! Started out strong and continued throughout with intrigue, drama and suspense. Charlotte or Charlie, was in trouble, and Jace brought her to his house. They fell for each other, so there's a bit of good heat here, along with two boisterous typical boys just being themselves. All goodness, but there's always the feeling that things can change in the blink of an eye, and boy did it! I loved reading this, keeping me in the thick of things to the end. A stand alone with it's own romance, tho it is part of a series. I received an advanced reader's copy thru Netgalley and am giving my honest opinion voluntarily.

    Emotional and riveting

    COWBOY TOUGH Jace and Charlie are two people who have been betrayed and hurt by their exes. Jace’s ex wife couldn’t wait to leave the ranch life behind even though it also meant leaving him and his boys behind too. Now she travels the world giving no thought or care toward the two sons who desperately miss her. Jace hasn’t forgotten the betrayal, but he isn’t holding on to the hurt as much any more. Charlie is on the run, trying to escape her abusive, rich lawyer boyfriend. He has taken control over life, isolating her from everyone else, including her family, and Charlie is now fleeing from him to protect the child she carries. Unfortunately, when she first meets Jace, the county Sheriff, she is having a miscarriage. Jace’s compassion for the beautiful and scared Charlie, leads him to giving her a place to stay at his family ranch. A series of events lengthen her stay, and she offers to help take care of his two boys, at least temporarily. Jace knows she is running from trouble, though she refuses to give him any information rather than a trumped up name, she owned a home decor store, and she is passing through. With his two cousins, the co-owners of the ranch, warning him not to get involved with Charlie, and even knowing she is only staying temporarily, Jace can’t stop his attraction to the resilient, compassionate and caring woman who has taken her sons under her wing. He helps her with legal matters in an effort to protect her from her ex, lets her use his barn for her design projects and generally falls in love with her. Charlie is not immune to Jace or his boys, and while their relationship soon includes passionate late night encounters, she is waiting for trouble to find her. She has grown to love the handsome rancher/Sheriff, and his two rambunctious boys, has started a growing business on the ranch, but she is still not the person she once was. When trouble does come to the ranch, will she stay and fight or go on the run again? Can she be the woman Jace and his boys need? Can Jace convince her to stay and accept his love and protection? This story tugs at the heartstrings, evokes a variety of emotions and is riveting from the first to the last page. The characters have a vivid depth, a realism that snares the reader and fosters an investment in their well-being and happily ever after.
