A new beginning . . .
A fresh start. That's exactly what Ally Shaw needs and what she's found in Glacier Ridge, Montana. Creating a simpler life with her young son and reconnecting with her only remaining family-it's all part of Ally's plan to chase away the pain of her past. But when a dangerously irresistible cowboy rescues her little boy, Ally can't deny she's excited about what else the future might bring.
Reed Malloy was a wild horse who wouldn't be broken. Devoted to his work on the land at the expense of everything else, he'd never met a woman who could hold his interest . . . until Ally. And now, beautiful Ally and her fearless, freckled child have this cowboy wanting more. This isn't Ally's first time at the rodeo, though, and convincing her to trust him isn't easy. But there isn't anything he won't do to keep her safe . . . and make her his.

Received an ARC for my fair review for netgalley. Sweet love story for Ally and Reed, Ally is a single parent, and when she least expects it, she falls in love. Reed has grown up with his grandparents along with his brothers, after his parent died. You read about the the relationship with his brothers, grandparents and friends, he is a sweet guy..
Reed Malloy has everything he could possibly want, a flourishing ranch, a job he loves, and working alongside his family... well except maybe love, but that has never really been a concern of his, until now. The moment Ally and her curious child stumble onto his property he is taken with them, finds himself wanting to be near them more and more, and before long he starts to consider the possibility of adding love to his life. But as with everything else in his life, it isn't going to be an easy addition... Ally packs her and her son's belongings and leaves the city behind for a calmer and simpler life in Glacier Ridge, Montana, and once they are there she can't imagine a better life. When they left the city she also hoped to be leaving her demons behind, but soon after landing in their new city she learns that the demons have found them. Good thing she has found herself in the company of the Malloy family, they welcomed them in with open arms, and she has never felt safer... especially in the company of certain sexy cowboy!! Ms. Ryan has done it again!!! What a wonderful addition to the Malloy's of Montana series! I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Reed and Ally! Their story was the perfect blend of everything needed for a great romance story... it had tender moments, romantic moments, and some suspenseful moments that kept me on the edge of my seat! I do believe this has been my favorite Malloy story to date, and I think it is because of the connection between Reed and Ally, their relationship had a very realistic quality to it, they had me in their corner right off the bat! Definitely a read that can't be missed, highly recommend you meet Reed, he is sure to charm his way into your heart!! I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this title.
Reed is like a cinematic buffet. Ms. Ryan provides imagery, heart pounding action and emotion that is as complicated as the story itself. Heartbreak and a dangerously painful past, lead Ally to the rugged terrain and beautiful landscape of Montana. Beautiful scenery and family connections aren't all that Glacier Ridge has to offer a girl with a wounded soul. How about a pair of strong arms as a safe haven? Will she trust her heart to show her the way or allow fear to destroy a chance at forever? The Malloys are an edgy family with strength of character and a family bond that helps them overcome life's darkest moments. There are no victims, only survivors. The legacy of Reed and the entire Malloy family is that united they can conquer whatever comes their way. That's the definition of family.
