    Loved it

    Loved this story! Starts out with full on excitement and gets better from there. Jennifer Ryan has definitely become one of my must read authors. In this book Gillian Tucker finds herself in a ton of trouble. No home, no job, hurt, and the only way to keep her little brother out of foster care is to move to Montana to live with the Grandparents she has never met. Blake Bowden is blown away by the strength and bravery of the young woman who shows up on Three Peaks Ranch. Since she is his co-owner's granddaughter she should be strictly off limits but the draw to her is undeniable. If you love rugged overprotective cowboys and strong women, this book is for you! I highly recommend it.

    New beginnings, romance, & hope

    Gillian has spent her life barely getting by, just trying to protect her little brother Justin from their violent, drug-addicted father. So when she has to pull the trigger to save them both, the last thing she's prepared for is an invitation from her grandfather to live a better life on his ranch, surrounded by the kind of family she's always dreamed of. Slow to trust, Gillian finds herself with no other option, and she apprehensively begins to settle into a life without fear and violence. What she didn't count on, though, was the sexy, patient cowboy who is willing to do anything to keep her safe and happy. But... The character of Ken was not only unnecessary but also detracted from the story. Too often, romances resort to these two-dimensional, would-be rapists to add drama where it's lacking or, as in this case, where it's not even needed. There was simply no point to his part. Gillian's past was plenty to overcome, and Blake proved himself time and time again. Ken served merely as an unneeded threat, and resolving his role didn't do anything to further the plot. Without him, the story would have been perfect, and I don't understand why the editor didn't nix him at first read. The Verdict: While I'm not too thrilled with the fact that Ken even exists, I have to say I'm still in love with this series. Gillian is a tough girl, having survived a lifetime of fear and abuse at the hands of her father. She's been doing odd jobs since she was fourteen to make sure her baby brother Justin has enough to eat and a roof over his head, but until one awful incident changes everything, she's been unable to secure their escape to a better life. Her final moments with her father leave him dead and her severely injured, and if she doesn't have help, she's going to lose Justin to the foster care system. Bud's always wondered what became of his granddaughter, but she disappeared years ago with her father, leaving only her mother's ashes behind. A fortunate twist of fate has Bud seeing news about the girl who killed her father in self-defense, and he immediately reaches out to help his long lost granddaughter. Gillian is, of course, reluctant. She knows nothing about her estranged family, and she's wary of walking Justin into a situation even half as dangerous as the one in which they lived for so long. But she's facing eviction and fees for property damage, is too injured to work, and has no choice but to take a chance on the man who leaves money with a simple note, Please come home. Everything about Gillian's reclaimed family was wonderful. Bud's a gruff old cowboy, but it's clear he loves his granddaughter, and Dee is simply amazing. They're shocked to meet Justin, a boy they didn't even know existed, but they welcome him just as easily as if they'd raised him themselves. The awful life that Justin and Gillian have lived is apparent, though, in their interactions with everyone around them, and while it's heartbreaking to witness, it's certainly understandable. Blake is just wonderful, too. He immediately feels protective of them both and vow to make sure they are always protected and safe as they start their lives over. He's attracted to Gillian from the start, but he's not foolish enough to try anything except being a friend, and it's clear his every word and move revolves around making sure they're both comfortable and happy. The romance that bloomed between Blake and Gillian was slow to develop, with good reason, but once it really sparked, they were on fire. It was great to see Gillian open up and let go of her fear — and finally get a chance to live the life she always wanted. Blake's patience and consideration for her was admirable, and I loved the way Justin still had a central role in everything about their lives. In a pretty big way, it was Blake's attention to and care for Justin that really revealed to Gillian just how worthy of a man he was, and it made any declarations from him that much more believable. When It's Right is quite a bit different from the first book in the series, At Wolf Ranch, but it's no less entertaining. In this one, we get to see a lot more secondary characters, and they all (except that damned Ken) add something integral to the story. From Dee to Jeff to Uncle Lumpy, they add a great extra dimension to the story and keep Gillian and Blake from existing in an unrealistic bubble. Despite the initial dark premise, When It's Right is a story about new beginnings, romance, and hope for a brighter future. ***FicCentral received this book from Harper Collins (via Edelweiss) for free in exchange for an honest review.

    Very Emotional

    While At Wolf Ranch was all about the gripping suspense, When It’s Right is heavy on the emotions and had me tearing up at the first chapter. Gillian Tucker has suffered long-term physical and emotional abuse at the hands of people she should have trusted with her life – her parents – and she does not trust easily. Gillian has taken care of her younger brother, Justin from birth and when faced with danger, she protects him and her decision leads her to her grandfather’s ranch in Montana where she meets Blake Bowden. Gillian has never had anyone do anything good for her and is wary and distrustful of the motives of both her grandfather and Blake but is forced to accept help from them due to her physical injuries and the fact that she hopes that the ranch would be a chance for Justin to have a normal childhood. Blake Bowden is a horse-trainer, partner with Gillian’s grandfather in the Three Peaks Ranch and is also the younger brother of Gabe from At Wolf Ranch. Blake has been a little envious of his brothers, Gabe and Caleb’s relationships and when he meets Gillian, he wants the same with her. However he realizes that her experiences have made her skittish and he has to work on getting her to trust him. Gillian is a great character. My heart just about broke for her in the beginning, but her strength and her will are remarkable. She fights hard to heal inside and outside, to trust in basic human goodness and to love. And Blake. How can’t one fall in love with Blake and where can I find one of him? He was so patient with Gillian and so protective of her. He didn’t demand more than she was willing to give and as much as he wanted her, waited for her to come to him. When It’s Right is a deeply moving story about learning to trust in humanity and love and worth reading. *I received this book for free from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    When It's Right

    Good book. I felt in love with Blake Bowden. He has the patience and endurance to keep going & not give up for his love to Gillian. As it says "Love is worth risking everything." I admire Gillian for her resilience & her toughness to take the best and make a choice to meet the inevitable obstacles and inequities of life. I am looking forward to the next book of the Montana Men from Jennifer Ryan. Thanks to Jennifer for her beautifully written story.

    Wonderful story about the healing power of love

    When It's Right starts off so tragically, but ends just right. Gillian is so broken in the beginning, but with the love of her family and Blake, she slowly heals both physically and emotionally. Blake is so patient and gentle with her, you can't help but fall in love with just a little bit. Wonderful story about the healing power of love. 4.5 stars ARC via Edelweiss
