3.75 stars--TOBIAS is the sixth installment in Emma Lang’s (Beth Williamson) historical western Circle 8 romance series focusing on the men and women of the Graham family owned Circle 8 ranch. This is Rebecca Graham and Tobias Gibson’s story. Although this is the sixth book in the series, it can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information, from the previous storylines, is imparted where necessary. Told from third person point of view, the storyline focuses on Rebecca Graham –a healer or the ‘doc’ as she has come to be known. When she is called to aid a wounded ranch hand she is stunned when the man that she once loved comes along for the ride. Tobias Gibson’s brother has been gravely injured and he is lost as to know what to do. The premise follows a second chance relationship between Tobias and Rebecca. Five years earlier, following a forgettable one-time act of sex, Tobias walked away from Rebecca, never looking back. There is a history between Tobias and Rebecca’s family one that years earlier compelled Tobias to set fire to the Circle 8 ranch and the resulting loss of life has eaten away at Tobias ever since. Tobias is a shell of his former self. Alone and drunk, Tobias has been separated from his family and those that he has loved for years but when what appears to be an attempt on his younger brother’s life, Tobias will find himself in need of Rebecca’s medical knowledge, as well. The years have not been good to Tobias and, his personal and private life have all gone to h*ll. He is a man who is wracked with guilt, self loathing and personal doubt. His is unable to forgive himself for the sins of his past. The relationship between our leading couple is one of attraction and love. Rebecca and Tobias have never stopped loving or wanting one another but there are too many years and heartbreaking secrets for our couple to begin anew. It is only when Tobias finds himself in prison for a crime he of which he has no recollection does he realize that Rebecca is the only woman in his heart. The world building continues with the inclusion of most of the previous storyline couples. We are re-introduced to the people at the Circle 8 ranch and get a glimpse at the next generation of family and friends. Emma Lang pulls the reader into a compelling historical western storyline of betrayal and trust; loving and loss; family and friends. It is a story about two people who have suffered with the knowledge that life as it once was will no longer be the same. There is also the introduction to the next couple-James Gibson and Cat Graham’s story. TOBIAS: Circle 8 is a story of family sacrifice and finding love. If you love an historical, western storyline with a broken hero and a second chance at love then TOBIAS is the read for you.

Tobias feels like he is the bad boy and no one but his pop's loved him. He turns to the bottle and feels he is alone his brothers moved on. When his pop's died five years before he walked away from Rebecca Graham and she promised herself never again. Rebecca became a healer and took care of anyone that needed her help little did she know Tobias and his brother would be her patients and he would steal her heart again. I loved this book and can't wait to read the next one.

The Circle Eight Series is one of my favorite series by far. I have enjoyed each of the stories of the Graham's adventures and finding their true loves. I have to say Rebecca and Tobias' story is my favorite. In the previous book you find out that Rebecca has fallen for Tobias and thinks of him as her Hero and sees him as her future husband. In this book she has not seen Tobias in 5 years because of the way they exited each others life. Time has not faded her love for Tobias, but she has given up on her hero and dream of marriage to him. She is brought back into his presence when his younger brother has been injured and needs her help as a healer. Time has not been good to Tobias as he has fallen into the bottom of a bottle and cut ties with everyone and everything he loved. The chemistry between the two is still alive, but they are both denying its presence. I enjoyed the back and forth banter of these characters. They are two sides of the same coin, both to stubborn to see the love that is still in their hearts for each other. When Rebecca confides her secret to Tobias and the way that he reacted is heartbreaking and beautiful. The love that Tobias has in his heart for his brothers after they are reunited is wonderful to watch. This book is full of adventure and intrigue. The villains are cruel and deputy is just as devious. I hope you will pick up this story and get lost in the adventure and emotion of The Circle Eight Series. You will thank yourself later!!!
