Have you been to Tucker Springs yet? This was my sixth visit there and I love it every single time I go! Now that I have read all of the “Tucker Springs” books I feel like I really know the town and some of its residents. I look forward to each time I get to visit, and this time it was with that spitfire Nathan and newcomer Ryan.

From the Publisher:
After years of saving every penny, Nathan has finally managed to buy the horse of his dreams. He’s looking forward to a summer of exploring the Colorado mountain trails above Tucker Springs with Tsarina. But on their very first ride, a motorcyclist makes a wrong turn, scaring Tsarina into bolting and leaving Nathan with a broken leg, a broken hand, and a ruined summer.
Ryan is a loner and a nomad, content with working odd jobs before moving on to the next town. Feeling guilty for causing the accident that leaves Nathan in two casts, Ryan offers to keep Tsarina exercised until Nathan heals.
Despite their bad start, Nathan and Ryan soon become friends . . . and then much more. But with a couple of nasty breakups in his past, Nathan doesn’t want feelings getting involved—especially knowing that Ryan will never settle down. But since when do feelings ever listen to reason?
It’s kind of funny because I really do spend about a few weeks each summer in the high Rockies. I adore the small mountain towns of Colorado, and if a place like Tucker Springs really existed I would definitely be hanging out there.
The “Tucker Springs” books are all unique despite being part of the same universe. No doubt due to the fact that different authors are writing them. I love that! It’s great to get a variety of flavors all in one store. I have discovered different things to enjoy about each story, and have found all of them to be very entertaining. What a great collection of M/M Romances!
So, we finally get to see Nathan take a chance at love – but will he be willing to give his heart away after getting it bruised so much? And speaking of bruising he gets his fair share of it when he meets Ryan – literally – bruised and broken too. I think their initial meeting is one of the more creative ways I’ve seen an author introduce men.
The most enjoyable things about this story are that it is easy to read, and that it brings another nice installment to the Tucker Springs collection. There wasn’t a huge amount of drama (unless you count having your horse fall on you) but enough to give it some spice and keep me entertained.
The story is told from Nathan’s point of view, but I really liked Ryan and would have enjoyed getting to know him a bit more. I hope that I will see more of them in the future “Tucker Springs” books. That is my way of saying there better be future Tucker Springs books because I do love this place!
