    I love this series.

    Reviewed for Read Your Writes Book Reviews by Kim

    I will be the first to the beginning this book did not grab my attention and keep me captivated. But when I finally got sucked in, it truly became a page turner. If you read the first book in the series, THREE RIVERS RANCH, then you know there was an attraction between Desiree and Zach. This is NOT the story I pictured for them. Roxanne has taken Zach to the brink, just stopping short of pushing him over the edge.

    Desiree Burke and Zachary Gamble are the MOST unlikely couple. She’s a city girl with a fancy little sports car, who’s addicted to Starbucks, and considers not wearing her Louboutins pure torture. Zach, on the other hand, is a pickup driving kind of guy. He’s single-handedly taking care of his family’s farm. Zach wears old denim jeans, cowboy boots, and let’s not forget about his chaps.

    These two do have something in common...They love their best friends Rory and Carson Granger like crazy. But Des and Zach have more in common than just their friends. Each bares the scars of being orphaned as kids. Des’ mother died when she was eight. Zach was adopted by Marnie and Joe Gamble as an infant, when they thought they couldn’t have children of their own. Des bounced from foster home to foster home. Zach went on to become the older brother of Cale and Celia, the Gamble’s biological children.

    Des’ mouth and attitude gets her in trouble at work and she is forced to take some time off. During her “sabbatical”, Des returns to Three Rivers Ranch to help out Zach’s father, who is in desperate need of a physical therapist, after a deadly car accident.

    Desiree and Zachary butt heads like no one else. Their battles eventually become love. But in the midst of everything, Des manages to help heal the broken Gamble family, including its beloved son. Zach and the residents of this small town offer Des the one thing she’s wanted her whole life....a family.

    I’m going to have to warn you, the book will make you cry, if not pull at your heartstrings. So be prepared!

    This is a good heartfelt romance. I haven't read book 1 and still got they story. I found myself cheering Des and Zach on throughout the book. There were times I wanted her to smack him for being hard headed. He made it difficult for her to love him. Even with the stress and his bad moods Des found herself feeling more at home on the big ranch. She realized she was fighting to save it as much as the family who owned it. 

    Thank you to Entangled Publishing and NetGalley for allowing me to read.

    His Reluctant Rancher is an enjoyable and entertaining romance.

    His Reluctant Rancher is an enjoyable and entertaining romance. Roxanne Snopek does an excellent job of taking the struggles in life, mixing it with sizzling chemistry and sexual tensions, adding a little sass, humor and drama, and coming up with an amazing story. A story of healing, family, responsibilities, physical attraction, and love. Her use of characters throughout the book, both main and secondary, adds depth and richness to the storyline. She takes situations that usually travel a dark path, and steers them in a direction which brings out the good that comes of them.

    The heroine, Des, a woman with patience, compassion, and plenty of sass, has to deal with not only her commitment issues and insecurities, but the hero’s insecurities as well. The hero, Zach, a man with a strong sense of familial obligation, has to deal with his errant sense of guilt while trying to fight his attraction for Des and find justification for his actions. The characters are believable and well-liked and draw you into the storyline as they struggle on their path of falling in love.

    The story is well-written, the plot solid, and the writing flows. It kept me thoroughly entertained from the first page to the last. This is a love story that anyone who likes romance should not miss. 

    I received a copy of this book from Entangled Publishing in exchange for my honest review.
