The Rancher and the City Girl by Joya Ryan

Rancher and single father Tripp Montgomery is a master at French braiding and princess tea parties. He's also the most eligible bachelor in Cheyenne, Wyoming. So when he stumbles upon a flashy, sexy city girl, he knows two things: 1) she's a walking disaster, and 2) he needs to stay far, far away.

But she needs him more than he wants to admit...

Charlotte Gram knows what it's like not to be wanted. She's in Cheyenne for the summer to help her grandmother heal after surgery, but the farmhouse "chores" are proving much harder than she thought. If her day couldn't get any worse, the sexiest man she's ever seen strolls up to save the day...

...and he definitely doesn't seem happy about it.

The Rancher and the City Girl it is a great story in which two different world collapses. It is really good written story with two strong characters. Charlie and Reed are great they both think that they will never meet again but faith has its way and they become a neighbor. Attraction is still very strong between them but Reed was left behind once and he is scared that will happen again. After a few they off pure bliss fear drive him in chasing Charlie away. I was glad that he man up and went looking for her. I really enjoyed reading the book. It was funny and hot and enjoyable to read. I volunteered to review an ARC of this book for Netgelly

Tripp Montgomery and his two best friend are raising his daughter and taking care of his ranch. He leads a very structured life and protects his daughter as best he can. When he sees Charlotte Gram, someone obviously not from around there, he suddenly remembers he’s also a man. Even though she knows she’s there for her grandmother while she recovers from surgery, Charlotte is still trying to figure out what she’s doing in Cheyenne, Wyoming. When a handsome cowboy helps her with her faulty rental car, she learns a whole new appreciation for cowboys. This was a cute and quick story. I loved all of the interactions between Tripp and Charlotte. The supporting characters were also well written. Tripp’s daughter was adorable and I really hope to read HEA books for his best friends. Very sweet read. I highly recommend. **I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

This is book one in Tempting the Rancher series and it features rancher, Tripp Montgomery and city girl, Charlotte Gram. This is a fun, sizzling romance with a sexy cowboy and his adorable daughter. I know this is a romance but I think the relationship between Charlotte and Tripp's daughter Gracie stole the show. This book has a great story line that never got boring and a fabulous cast of characters. I can't wait until book 2 comes out.

Talk about some serious heat in a book! Tripp and Charlotte were explosive. From their first meeting to the very last page, they were scorching. I loved all her reactions to him. She never knew which Tripp to expect and she called him on his behavior. Charlotte was so vulnerable as far as family goes. Her inner thoughts and dialogue broke my heart. She was such a giving and loving woman, especially to her Grammy. Tripp was hot and cold, and overprotective of his daughter. Who by the way almost was totally adorable. She unknowingly and unintentionally messed up all Tripp's plans. God bless her, she was a sweetheart and took an instant liking to Charlotte. Their story was so good that I had to keep reading, needing to know how it would all unfold. And I loved it. Now just need a whopper of a story for both Cash and Bo, who were hysterical in this. I received this book in exchange for an honest review from the publisher through Netgalley.

Sweet and Sassy Contemporary Romance Read The Rancher and the City Girl is a sweet single dad romance read by Joya Ryan. This is Tripp and Charlotte's story. Tripp is a divorced man who stays at his ranch with his daughter Gracie and two friends. Tripp doesn't do relationships, and he doesn't want to expose his daughter to someone who isn't willing to stick around . Trip’s thoughts are - If Gracie's own mom could so easily walk away what’s to keep a perfect stranger from doing the same then? Charlotte is a city girl heading to the country to help her grandma's farm while she recovers from ankle surgery. She met Trip on her way back to visit her grandma when her car got her stranded. He helps her with her car and gets her to go on a date. One thing leads to another and they have a one night stand. They never thought they would run into each other again. But they did and still kept running into each other again. They then find out they are going to be neighbors for several weeks. You feel for Charlotte because she is a city girl in the country and she has no clue what she is doing but she does her best and you will root for her. You see her fall in love with Trip’s little girl and how her heart falls for Trip while his heart is harder to crack. Trip really gave me a lot of grief with his hard headedness. Will they or wont they get that HEA? There are a great cast of secondary characters and I did like this story for it was sweet and sassy. I loved the cowboy feel to it. The ending was light , did wish it had more of a finished feel to it but overall was nice. My Rating: 4.0 stars ***** "I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book in exchange for an honest review***

Received an ARC for my fair review for netgalley. This was a cute story. I liked Charlotte, Charlie as her grandmother called her. She needed to work on her insecurities, however you could not blame her, everyone she ever loved had abandoned her, besides her grandmother. Charlie and Tripp meet on a whim, when her rented car breaks down on her, and it was instant attraction,. They both decide to give in to a one night stand since they both have circumstances that will not allow them to be able to deal with more. But as you and I know, things change. I loved Gracie, and her Gram, Bo was cute too. Now, the others annoyed me, for being a small town they were not very nice. Now I understand that Trip did not want Gracie to get attached to Charlie, because of what he had previously went thru, but he went about it wrong, and I am happy Charlie spoke up about, she wins in my book. enjoy, I sure did. I am hoping we read about Bo.

I loved this one!! I gobbled it up in one day because I just couldn't put it down. I loved all the main cast of characters. How could anybody not swoon over hunky single father rancher Tripp. Just the way he is with his daughter will make anyone want to snap him up. He does have a grumpy disposition though, but he has his reasons. Having Charlotte in town to take of her grandma throws Tripp off his game, because there is just something about that city girl that gets Tripp's motor running. My heart melted with the moments between Charlotte and little Gracie. Gracie is too adorable with a kind heart. Things get quite steamy between Charlotte and Tripp, but can Tripp let down his protective walls enough in order to let Charlotte in? Or is he too closed off at the possibility of more? The epilogue was the perfect touch to end this one in my opinion. It left me with a happy heart and a smile on my face.

4.5 stars I loved The Rancher and the City Girl by Joya Ryan. This book was just what I was in the mood for, the storyline was engaging, the characters were likable, frustrating and their chemistry was off the charts!! Charlotte and Reed had me laughing and swooning one minute and wanting to slap them the next lol For me, Charlotte made this book such a joy to read. I admired her character and her determination to get things done. She wasn't going to let the farm get the better of her. She made me laugh so many times, one example was her googling on how to milk a cow :D This girl meant business and no sexy rancher was going to get in her way ;) Reed's character took me a little longer to connect with. While I understood Reed's fear of letting his cute and smart little girl get too close to Charlotte after being hurt in the past, some of his comments were a little hurtful and my heart went out to Charlotte. Then he'll go do something sweet and all was forgiven. Reed truly had a good heart and only wanted to protect his daughter and his heart. By the end of the book Reed had won me over and I knew without a doubt he had found his soulmate in Charlotte. Overall, The Rancher and the City Girl was a very entertaining & steamy read with likable, relatable characters that will bring out all the feels. What an awesome start to the Tempting the Rancher series.

What a sweet, hot, steamy read! I absolutely loved this book. Tripp’s wife left him when their daughter was just a baby and he’s been determined to never let another woman come into his life. They will only leave again and he refuses to expose Gracie to that kind of pain. When he has a one night stand with Charlotte he never expects to see her again. Of course if he didn’t, the story would end there, but he does and each time they meet the sparks fly and their connection grows stronger. Charlotte and Tripp are two people who have built up walls to protect themselves against those that would leave them. It was interesting that they both suffered from the same fears. I was curious how the heck either one would ever overcome their past and step into the future. The solution was perfect for both of these characters and I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect ending. There was one moment when Tripp played the alpha-hole card and I wanted to smack him with it. However, Bo, a great secondary character, set him on the path to finding the answer. I will absolutely be looking forward to his story. Because really, Bo. It must be written. If you’re looking for a nice, rather quick read that is full of fun, laughter, sexy times and some angst, this is the most perfect book.

Funny, sexy romance. Charlotte Gram builds websites in L.A., until her grandmother, Wilma Gram, has ankle surgery and needs help with her small farm in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Tripp Montgomery lives on the farm next to Wilma Gram with his two brothers and his six year old daughter Gracie. On a visit into town Tripp sees a beautiful woman kicking seven bells out of her car and cursing like a trooper, after helping her with her overheating problem (pnarr pnarr) he gets Charlotte to agree to a date. This leads to one of the best lines ever when Tripp's brother walks into the bathroom and says: “Smells like senior year in here,” Bo said from the doorway of the bathroom. “Scratch that, it smells like prom night senior year.”They have a torrid one night stand never thinking they would see each other again, only to discover that they are going to be neighbours for several weeks. Of course, as a city girl, Charlotte doesn't know what to do on a farm and Tripp as the closest neighbour needs to help, but he is wary about Gracie getting too close to women, especially after her mother left, and tries to keep Charlotte at arms length. This is a super sweet, funny, sexy novella about opposites attracting. Loved it. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

the rancher and the city girl is the first book in joya ryan's tempting the rancher series. tripp montgomery is the aforementioned rancher and charlotte grams is the city girl who blazes into town and shakes his world up. tripp has been busy, running his ranch, raising his daughter, avoiding difficult emotional connections. it's pretty easy to keep a distance from things when there isn't a lot of new coming into cheyenne, wyoming. there's nothing to shake him out of his routine. but when he comes across charlie, cursing up a storm at her rental car, he's compelled to help her and intrigued enough to risk one night of something more. it's when he realizes that she's around for a while and that she will be his neighbor that he panics. he doesn't bring women around his daughter willy-nilly. they've already been abandoned by her birth mom. why would he risk her heart as well as his? these are some pretty big walls that charlotte has to scale. and she often doesn't get where he is coming from. mostly because in her life, everyone leaves her behind. sometimes she wonders if there is something essentially unlovable about her. tripp doesn't think she is unloveable. he's actually worried she is too loveable. he doesn't want his daughter to fall in love with charlie if she will leave. he doesn't want to fall in love with her if she's only planning to go back to the city. but it's too late. how can he stop himself from loving her, when she's already wormed her way into his heart. and how this conflict resolves itself is totally worth the read. **the rancher and the city girl will publish on june 12, 2017. i received an advance reader copy courtesy of netgalley/entangled publishing (brazen) in exchange for my honest review.

The Rancher and the City Girl is the first book I've ever read by Joya Ryan and I was not disappointed. I was hooked from the very beginning and could not stop reading it. Charlotte and Tripp may have thought that their night together was only a one night stand with two people just having fun. But they couldn't have been more wrong. They both might have thought they were both just looking for a no strings attached relationship but the heart wants what the heart wants. It also couldn't hurt that Charlotte is the perfect mother for Gracie and that they both clicked and bonded from the very beginning. The little family that Gracie, Charlotte and Tripp make is so cute and adorable that they couldn't have been more perfect for each other. If your looking for a book that has comedy, steamy scenes, romance and family then this book is for you. I was given this was given this ARC by NetGalley and Entangled Publishing as an exchange for an honest review.

4.5 out of 5 stars So fun, sweet, and sexy! This was a charming, fast paced read that had a lot of heart and the perfect amount of heat. Loved it! Tripp and Charlotte were so great. I loved them meeting and connecting. Awesome chemistry. As things unfold, there is great animosity and banter that's super entertaining between the two. I loved watching that heat and need grow between them. Charlotte was stubborn and feisty and I liked her fire. She was a bit lost in life and was searching for her place. Tripp had serious swagger and was swoon worthy. I loved how he was completely devoted to his daughter. This is pretty fast paced and they do have an instant connection but I totally rolled with it because somehow it just worked perfectly for me. It was a quick and light, but a full story that I couldn't put down. I loved the storyline. This one had me at single father. Add in cowboy and it was like icing on the cake. There's enough details to keep things moving along at a brisk pace but I never felt it was rushed, just enough to keep everything moving along perfectly. Love the sparks flying. It was entertaining and sexy, and there was a nice bit of emotion and playfulness too. It made for an excellent afternoon read! Loved it. Hot cowboys for the win! Complimentary copy received for honest review.

I think I'm becoming a fan of cowboys! This is a first read of Joya Ryan for me and I like her writing style. This was a shorter read but a perfect length for the story. I was worried I wasn't going to like Charlotte. She's a city girl heading to the country to help her grandma's farm while she recovers from ankle surgery. Usually a city girl attempting farm work is disastrous. I really liked that the author gave her a backbone to learn the work and accomplish it successfully. Her use of YouTube videos to learn how to do things was hilarious and brilliant. I loved almost everything about Tripp. He was a great single dad, very protective of his daughter. When he wasn't trying to keep Charlotte away from his daughter, he was charming and hot. I can't really blame him for trying to keep Gracie from falling for random woman, so he gets a pass for that. When he failed keeping them apart, the interactions with Charlotte and Grace were adorable. Overall a shirt, cute and fun read. ARC provided by NetGalley. (less)

Ms. Ryan proves there's more to romance than a sexy romp. It's the story behind the romance that delivers that microburst of emotion. That powerful blast that hits like an arrow to the heart. The Rancher and the City Girl is more than the story of an opposites attract relationship. It's travels into the uncharted territory of bromance and fatherhood. There can be nothing more adorable than a besotted dad and his irresistible bond with his little girl. All of these elements merge into a second chance expedition that will bring on a lot of laughter, a few tears and the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

Loved this story! I have so many adjectives running around my brain to describe Reed Montgomery. Sweet, sexy, rugged, sexy, loving....and did I mention sexy??? He's a single dad running a ranch with the help of his two friends (yep I see more awesome cowboys in the future!). That pretty much takes up all his time so dating isn't high on his must do list. Yet when he meets city girl Charlotte Gram in town he knows he needs to make time just this once. One amazing night is all they get, or at least that's what they think until Reed finds Charlotte talking to his daughter and learns that Charlotte is in town for the summer helping her grandmother and Reed's neighbor after surgery. Looks like more than the weather will be heating up this summer! I highly recommend this one!

RATING 4.5 STARS The Rancher and the City Girl is the very first book I’ve ever read by Joya Ryan. I have to admit that it’s the cover that drew my attention at first. It’s pretty widely known that I can’t resist a sexy cowboy story and when combined with a cover like this, how could I resist. Being a new to me author, I was apprehensive but oh my gosh, I fell in love with this one. First, we have Tripp Montgomery. He is a single father and his adorable little six year old daughter, Gracie, is his world. He runs his ranch along with his two best friends, Cash and Bo, who also help him with Gracie. Gracie’s mom left them when Gracie was a baby. Tripp will never put his baby girl in that position again to be abandoned by a woman. So, he doesn’t date. Tripp is everything you might fantasize that a real cowboy is, well mannered, wears a Stetson, and of course, those sexy wranglers. But he is so much more than a cowboy. He’s a daddy, and thinks nothing of watching Frozen over and over or flipping pancakes in an apron for a fund raiser for his daughter’s girl scout troop. He’s perfect. Well, almost. Charlotte Gram is a freelance web designer and is living in Los Angeles. She hasn’t been able to get hired on to a large company yet so is having trouble making ends meet on her own. Her grandmother lives in Cheyenne, Wyoming and has a small fifty acre ranch. But her grammy has broken her ankle and requires surgery so since Charlotte is her only relative, she is going to spend the summer helping her grammy run the farm. But, Charlotte doesn’t know a single thing about country living. This woman was amazing. She tackled every job with gusto with a little help from YouTube. Picture if you will Charlotte sitting in front of a cow that needs milking with her phone running a how to video showing her what to do. Not only did Charlie succeed though, at helping her grammy, she excelled. She was even making lists of things she wanted to improve on. She felt a sense of peace on the farm that she didn’t feel in the city. It felt like home. And the sexy cowboy who’s land was adjacent to theirs and his adorable little girl might have had something to do with that. On her first night in Cheyenne, Charlie and Tripp met and agreed to a one night stand, no strings, no regrets. And oh my gosh, was it ever a night to remember. So both Charlie and Trip were shocked to realize that they would most definitely be seeing each other again, that it would be hard to avoid each other. Soon, though, they didn’t want to avoid each other. Their attraction grows and deepens, as does Charlie’s feelings for little Gracie. But Charlie has no idea about how to be a mother. Her own parents abandoned her. So how could she ever be what Gracie needs? This book just stole my heart, both Tripp and Charlie both were so afraid of their feelings but they were perfect for each other. Their chemistry was hotter than hot. They were both longing for a family, for a happy ever after, it just took them both a bit to realize it. “Was this what happiness felt like? A calm easiness with another person? She liked it. Liked that Tripp, and his home, and his bed, were warm. All the time. That felt like home.”

Ryan's novel is a short but pleasant read. I was pulled into the characters, especially little Gracie. I wish the story had been a little longer. There are several places where she could have examined the character's motivations and feelings. One particularly quick behavior change would have been less jarring had the motivations of the character been examined more closely. Joya's treatment of farm life was a little off to me. I grew up on a farm and there were a few things that didn't quite ring true. Still, I enjoyed the book and it held my interest. I received an advance copy in exchange for an honest review.
