Ut They stand for each other even when they barely now one another Yes they have a few bumps in the road mostly caused by Austin s father but they learn to talk about them and understand them These two are wonderful to read about and I totally enjoyed their story I like how it all trued out in the end and how it got there There are a few surprises along the way that I enjoyed too I think you will too Even though you can read this as a standalone do yourself a favor and read Dirty *Little Secret First It *Secret first It where both Austin s and Sonya s stories start It s also a darn good book on its own Follow me on ARC received for an honest review Coffee Dates with Restless RancherFirst Date Austin Hubbard has spent every penny paying the back taxes on the land and home he inherited from his grandfather after his own father turned his back on him Roxy has offered to a silent partnership and things are looking up but a setback in the form of his ex fianc leaves hi 15 starsI received this book for free in exchange for an honest review This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review Yes he d been humbled going from living large with money overflowing his bank account to scraping by Second in the Wild Rose Ranch series the troubled Austin is trying to get his life together I haven t read the first book and I think that really hurt my enjoyment of this I had no idea who these people were and our heroine Sonya with her sisters and family dynamics seem to be play a big part in the underlining theme and emotion in the series I think background nowledge on Sonya s family and Austin as a character would have helped my attachment to these characters This starts with Austin trying to reform his party boy ways because his rich father has cut him off and his girlfriend has dumped him Austin inherited a ranch from his grandfather but it is dilapidated and needs a lot of money and repair Sonya comes into the picture because her sister heroine from book one is bankrolling Austin s ranch and she is there to manage and run the books for the ranch Numbers made sense to her Everything lined up People the things they did their capacity to hurt others and inflict such cruelties boggled her mind This was a honestly a mess of storylines for me the beginning focuses for a while on how Austin s grandfather was a hoarder and lingers on the emotional whys of it Austin s father badly wants the ranch and now his ex girlfriend is engaged to his father and his father wants the ex to trick Austin into impregnate her and Austin working on trying to get his act together Sonya has her own issues with her family a mother who lived a harsh life a job that passed her over for promotion and dealing with her sisters and childhood There
was a scenea scene Sonya gets angered and in one paragraph spouts a plethora of trigger warning issues that happened to her mother and it felt like heaping awful traumas on a character just for shock or forced emotional value because of the lack of emotional foundation She d stand by whoever she loved She d be a true partner Adversity challenged her it didn t back her down The romance between the two is fairly instant and not something I completely believed in because of the lack of solid relationship groundwork They have some good back and forth moments made better because of the don t back down attitude of Sonya but the constant fluttering between story threadsplots didn t leave enough time for them to develop The main plot of Austin s dad wanting his ranch so bad could have worked but Austin s forced mishandling of the situation he didn t seem too curious as to why his dad would want the ranch in the beginning and him never checking deeds or information about something inherited and carried so much aboutIf you read the first you d probably enjoy this then me but I felt disconnected from the characters there were too many messy storythreads and the romance moved too uickly without a strong enough foundation I ve other Ryan works before and enjoyed them I m going to just count this one as a one off. Raised by her mother at Nevada’s notorious brothel Wild Rose Ranch only dreamed about But working with the long lean cowboy shows her that Austin is honorable to his core Together they slowly grow to see what the love between them might bringBut then Austin’s powder eg of a family feud explodes exposing long buried secrets and threatening their new found love. ,
