You can take the man out of the ranch, but never the ranch out of the man.
Lutherton is one of my favourite places on literary earth. Our third outing to the ranch has all the characters we love plus new ones, a captivating storyline, humour, touching moments, romance and drama. It's a wonderful addition to the series.
Mitchell Granger, ahhhh Mitch (that's my appreciative sigh). I feel I have cheated on Carson and Zach. The man is like an easter egg; crack through the exterior and you discover the hidden treats. Sexy, stubborn, defensive, witty and proof that foot and mouth isn't just limited to the animal variety, he's also vulnerable and a ranch-outsider having fled 10 years previously. Sabrina, who we met in the first book, is Rory's fabulous flirty and funny best-friend, with an absolute heart of gold that remains secretly shattered after her childhood sweetheart abandoned her. So, two ex-lovers, one month and one lie to benefit both sides. Redemption or revenge?
I loved every page (except the last one; didn't want it to end). I laughed, I swooned, I fell utterly in love and my heartstrings were well and truly pulled. In fact tears threatened. With plenty of emotion, banter, flirting and sexual tension, there was never a dull moment and this is my favourite book so far. Would I recommend? Without a doubt, it deserves every star and I can't wait for #4.
I received a copy of this book as an ARC from the publisher for an honest and unbiased opinion

I was offered an ARC of this book by Entangled in exchange for an honest review which was great for me since I was stalking the authors page looking for release date updates. Once I start a series, I read all of them. I originally ignored Amazon's recommendation of Three River Ranch. It wasn't until His Reluctant Rancher popped up on the list that I took notice. My O.C.D. made me start with the first book and I've been hooked since although you could read this as a stand alone.
The book starts out with Mitchell Granger, the brother of Carson Granger in book 1. In Three River Ranch Mitchell was vaguely mentioned as the brother who left town. You don't get any info other than that the brothers aren't close at all. Mitchell left long ago to make something of himself so he could show everyone in town. He's done it, but still isn't happy. While trying to win a contract from an old rich lady, he gets the feeling that she's attempting to make a match with him and her step-daughter by telling her he's off the market.
Sabrina, who was the first woman Mitchell could think of, was still living in the town that Mitchell left. She was Rory's midwife in The River Ranch. She runs a birthing center in need of many upgrades. She see's Mitchell's proposition as the key to getting the upgrades and a little revenge for his leaving her so many years ago.
Out of the 3 books so far, I think this one was the best. To me, this book went much deeper than the previous two. There were so many different layers to it with all the side characters and each other their intertwined stories. Now it looks like I'll be back to stalking the author's website to find out about the next book in the series "The Forbidden Rancher".

This is a fabulous story showing us that it is possible to go home again. We finally get to know Mitch and all his reasons for leaving!

Fake Fiance, Real Revenge is the third book in the Three River R
Fake Fiance, Real Revenge is the third book in the Three River Ranch Novel series by Roxanne Snoper. This was a wonderful story about lost loves and second chances. The heart of this story is about Mitchell Granger and his former high school girlfriend Sabrina Becker. Mitchell broke Sabrina's heart and abandoned her when she needed him most. Ten years later he is needing Sabrina to help him seal an ultimate business deal and she is more than willing to help and in turn get some good old fashioned revenge. Along the way, the realize there was more to their story and their feelings for each so many years ago and maybe what they were both hoping to gain by this new arrangement isn't exactly what their hearts want.
I really enjoyed this uplifting, easy to read romance. The other characters help to build the story and the relationship for Mitchell and Sabrina. What I loved about this story was that it seemed real. I felt Sabrina's pain and I appreciated Mitchell's desire to be successful in other's eyes.
While this book is part of a series, I believe it could easily be read as a stand alone. I never read the first two books prior to reading Fake Fiance but I do believe I may have connected even more with the story if I had read them. As a new Roxanne Snoper fan, Three River Ranch and His Reluctant Rancher are definitely on my TBR list.
