The Winter Cowboy will grab a hold of you and keep you reading to the very end looking forward to the next in this series
This story is an intense, emotional read, with lots of angst, anger, tragedy, and betrayal. There is also devotion to family, love, healing, and redemption, as two boyhood friends separated by a tragic accident meet again. Can they get beyond past hurts and learn to love and trust again? This book has some dark times when you think the sun could never possibly shine again, but it is well worth it. P.S.: You might want to have tissues nearby. P.P.S: When you are finished having your heart wrung out by Winter Cowboy, I recommend reading R.J.’s lighter tale Love Happens Anyway.^^ I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
My heart hurt for Micah and Daniel. The love and hurt between these two clung tight for years but finally once together the love/passion was explosive. It could not be denied these two definitely moved up my favorite character list. This is a must must read I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
I was captivated with this great story from the very first page and the characters were so well detailed that I had a very hard time putting this book down!
When Micah Lennox promised the man he loved he would never return he intended to keep that promise but now he has to protect his pregnant sister and nephew. Whisper Ridge and the family ranch is the safest place he can think of to do just that. Dr. Daniel Sheridan has returned to Whisper Ridge after a hostage situation has him living with PTSD and a certain level of survivor's guilt. The last thing he wants to hear is that his former lover has broken his word to stay away. Will Micah and Daniel be able to leave the past where it belongs and find a new future living in the same community or will the heartache and pain of long ago win out? First, I just want to say a huge thank you to RJ Scott. Not only is the book amazing but because of its awesomeness, I had an amazingly entertaining and relaxing trip to the Mayo Clinic. It turned one of those "routine" days with Mom's doctors(you know the kind where you have to be there at 7am for blood, than 9 for an x-ray and then sit around till 4pm for the doc) into . . . well like I said it was just relaxing and entertaining, I got more than a few sideway glances when I gasped or grinned like a chesire cat but I loved every minute of it, so once again Thank You, RJ for making a long strung out day not so long and not so strung out. Now as for the story, don't think because I used the term "relaxing" that its all sunshine and unicorns, oh no quite the opposite really. Winter Cowboy is full of drama, heartache, and tears BUT its also jam packed to overflowing with amazing characters, incredible settings, second chances, and heart. I'll admit that Daniel grated on my nerves at times with putting all the blame on Micah for the past, which I won't spoil, but I am going to say as a reader hearing both sides if I was in Daniel's shoes I would like to think I would be more honest about the situation but I can't say for certain I would do it differently. Sometimes fate has their own clock, we may not agree with how its set but it usually gets us where we need to be and when. I will admit I loved how both Micah and Daniel had issues to deal with and accept, more often than not it comes down to one character with the problem and the other "dealing" with it but not these boys they are both looking for a second chance. I just want to finish by saying I have read many books and many authors over the years, both as a blogger and my personal reads and I have a small list of authors who continually ingratiate the secondary characters into a story to make them more than just window dressing, page filler, or fodder for the bad guys and RJ Scott is at the top of that list. Whether its a character that will probably be at the center of a future tale(hint, hint at Neil), family that gives the main characters reason to return, or that judgmental couple you really want to knock on their ass. They all add something that makes the journey better and has left me hungry for more from Whisper Ridge, Wyoming. I can't wait to see what RJ has in store next for this ranching community.
A great start to a new series! Winter Cowboy tore me up and then put me back together again. It's no secret that I love books by RJ Scott. Her backlist is huge so I haven't read all of them yet – but I'm working on it. Winter Cowboy is a very moving story about two young men who were torn apart by a horrible accident. Daniel and Micah were so much in love with each other until the unthinkable happened and Daniel told Micah to leave Whisper Ridge and never come back but Micah returns 9 years later to help his sister. The story is told in first person alternating between Daniel and Micah. While this isn't my favorite POV, I'm beginning to appreciate it a bit more; especially when done by my favorite authors. We first learn what happened in 2009 and then jump to present day. Throughout the story we get glimpses of Daniel and Micah's past in the form of memories that they have. During the time that Micah's been away from Whisper Ridge he's grown into a man and made a life for himself training horses. Daniel has been to medical school and worked as an ER doctor; he returned to Whisper Ridge after a tragedy struck the ER where he was working. Like nearly all of RJ Scott's books, Winter Cowboy had me in tears more than once. Sometimes they were sad tears for the things that these guys were going through and sometimes they were happy when things started working out for them. Winter Cowboy is a strong start to the new Whisper Ridge series and I can hardly wait to read the next one. An advanced copy of this book was provided to me but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author. ***Reviewed for Xtreme-Delusions dot com***
