About Round Up
Broken Heart? Check. Ranch retreat? Check. Handsome cowboy? …Check.
The rules at Broken Hearts Ranch are pretty simple: no romance between staff and visitors. Ryan Prosper, rodeo has-been and ranch manager, hasn’t had a problem with that. His sister runs the therapy side of the place while he handles the ranch itself, and the balance has worked well. But when Talia James shows up for her turn at the retreat, things get a little more challenging.
Talia needs this therapeutic retreat badly, and hopes that it will be just what she needs to get unstuck after her tragic loss. The charming cowboy brother of her new therapist is a ray of sunshine she hadn’t anticipated, and spending time with him seems to do as much good as her sessions. But is her still broken heart ready for romance, and does she really have the heart to resist him?
I love the sports romances written by the authors of the Swoony Sports Romance Facebook page. This series features rodeo. And I’m really excited to read them all.
I loved Talia. She’s just lost in the brain fog from when her son died. And it makes everything in her life hard. That’s when she finds Broken Hearts Ranch. It’s a therapeutic ranch set up for women to go, have some therapy, and work out their troubles while working on the ranch. What a great idea! I loved the way Talia was able to grow through the story. She had plenty of help from Kellie, the owner of the ranch. But also from her brother Ryan as well.
I loved the lengths Ryan was willing to go through to help Talia move beyond her grief. And that was even before he actually knew what her grief was coming from. He’s just a great guy. And he’s where the rodeo part comes in. He wants to save the Lost Creek Rodeo that seems to be having problems, so he brings his rodeo friends.
One of my favorite things about this one were the cameos from Grizz and Clint. I love seeing characters again from books I’ve loved.
Reading more of this series is on my list of goals! Next up, Chute Boss.
I was sent an e-copy of Round Up as a gift from the author. All opinions are my own.
