An intriguing set up in the story, with the ex-wife approaching the ex-husband with a proposal that blew me away. Wyatt Colton had his heart shattered by Bailey Norton when she walked away from him and their home, their marriage without an explanation. Now, out of the blue, she's back, with an outrageous request. I admit, at first, I could not understand how Wyatt let Bailey even inside into his home, not to mention let her present the request she did. I wasn't sure if I admired him for it or not. But I got over that quickly, and I was looking forward to a deep, edgy, emotional reconciliation, completely forgetting that this was romantic suspense by the halfway to the book, when the mystery of a dead woman was brought into the picture and all the marital and relationship problems were forgotten. I wish the story would have stuck into the romance, and not tried to dip into the suspense that felt flat and unnecessary. Because with Wyatt and Bailey, there was a chance to built the emotions and angst, making it into a great, passionate love story. Now the reconciliation between the exes felt rushed, almost as an afterthought, to get to the end. And the different aspects of the suspense and mystery -- it felt discrete, like two stories put together to make one ensemble. A love story with great potential to be made into an epic romance tale interrupted by murder, mayhem, family drama, and vindictive townspeople. ~ Three Spoons

3 1/2 STARS! With the first book in The Colton's of Roaring Springs series, Marie Ferrarella brings us Wyatt Colton's story. He lost the love of his life, but now she's back asking for his help. They find themselves knee-deep in trouble when things start happening around the ranch that no one expected. Overall, the story was an entertaining read. There were several plot holes that could have made for a more developed story had they been filled in, but the underlying story was laid to carry forward into the series. I enjoyed it. Rancher Wyatt Colton can't believe his eyes when he opens his door to find his ex-wife standing on his doorstep. She up and left him six years ago with no explanation, but here she comes calling when she needs a favor ... if you can even call it that ... it's a life-changing request! Bailey Norton left the Crooked C to chase the dreams she left unfulfilled when she married Wyatt, it wasn't because she didn't love him anymore. Now time is running out on her and she is here to ask the best man she ever knew if he will help her with the final thing she's missing in her life ... having the baby she always dreamed of!

Years after ending her relationship with her husband, Wyatt Colton, Bailey Norton shows up on his doorstep with an unexpected request: to father her child. Unresolved passion sets off sparks between them, but Bailey must resist Wyatt’s undiminished allure—and show her true grit when the Colton ranch is mysteriously sabotaged. Can this Colton cowboy lasso the culprit and a forever family? This story definitely had an interesting plot. It was pretty quick to get through. I totally understood why Bailey left. However, my problem is how quick forgiveness came and everything was based on lack of communication. Then again, that’s why I don’t read too many second chance romances. Overall though, it was a quick and enjoyable read. **I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

Colton Cowboy Standoff Marie Ferrarella Six years ago, Bailey Colton left her husband Wyatt without telling him why. Now she has returned because she wants to have a baby and wants him to be the donor. After Bailey left, Wyatt found the bottle. Now he is sober and working on the ranch. To say Wyatt was shocked when Bailey shows up is an understatement. When she tells him that she wants him to father her child, he is even more shocked. Bailey had left because the ranch became Wyatt’s primary focus. He had to prove himself to his father. Bailey always wanted to be a vet but put her life on hold to help Wyatt. Both are now different people. Bailey is more self assured and her skills as a vet are invaluable on the ranch. Wyatt is still leery of her but soon comes to admire and fall in love with the new Bailey as they try to figure out who is sabotaging the ranch. I gave this story a 3. I had a hard time with the characters. When Bailey shows up after not hearing from her for six years, Wyatt doesn’t ask her why she left. I had other issues with his character as well. Someone is harming his cattle and he automatically said it is the neighbor who wants to buy him out. He goes over to confront this neighbor with no real proof instead of going to the Sheriff. Bailey is the better character of the two. She now has a sense of self that confuses Wyatt, she is no longer in his shadow but still helps and supports him. It does have a HEA because Bailey and Wyatt end up together but I don’t know if I would read the next Colton book in this series.

I can't keep up with the large Colton family and don't remember if I have read about the Roaring Springs Coltons, or if this was the first in the series. It is a second chance story, which is one of my favorites. Bailey Norton left her husband, Wyatt Colton, 6 years ago, without an explanation and sent him signed divorce papers (Is that legal? Don't they both have to sign them?) Now she is back, with a request. She wants him to father her baby. When they had been married, she had wanted to have children and go to veterinary school, but Wyatt had told her to wait until their ranch the Crooked C was more stable. She felt like she was loosing herself- but never shared that with her husband. Now she is a veterinarian and wants a baby, and Wyatt is the best man that she knows. She broke his heart when she left and he has since closed off his heart and trust. Will he open his heart again to the only woman that he has ever loved? She still loves him; will she have the courage to tell him so? Meanwhile, who is sabotaging the ranch? The author creates appealing characters and provocative scenarios, in an action packed adventure. However, it does end with a cliff hanger. I received a free advanced copy of this book from NetGalley.com. This is my unbiased and voluntary review.
