Book two in the Saddle Up and Ride series.

Ethan Griggs is quite happy living on Justice River Ranch. He spends his days as head wrangler, tending to the horses he loves and the guests he’s learned to tolerate. When Bridger Collins arrives at the ranch, Griggs’ world is turned upside down. Despite his usual hands-off policy with the guests, he’s immediately drawn to the younger man.

Bridger thrives on the cowboy way of life. The son of one of the richest men in the country, Bridger would rather fix a fence than sit behind a desk counting his money. The sexual chemistry he seems to share with Griggs is simply icing on the cake.

With his week-long stay coming to a close, Bridger is forced to choose between the life he wants with Griggs and the life planned for him since birth.

My View:

I enjoyed this story even more than the first. I loved Griggs and Bridger and I truly felt their connection and love for one another. I enjoyed visiting the ranch and am looking forward to coming back again in book 3.

My biggest complaint was that this book was too short and felt extremely rushed. While I felt the love once it started, it was fast and I never understood the pace. I also would have loved to see more of the ranch operations and how they incorporated the new LGBT guests. There was so much potential that was missed here due to the word count. If Ms. Lynne were to expand this story in the future I would snap it up in a heartbeat because what was written was good, but there was so much more room for this to be great.
