Wild Rose Ranch
By Jennifer Ryan
My Review of Restless Rancher:
Austin Hubbard may have one day been looked upon as a spoiled little rich kid that had the world by the tail. Then his world fell apart. He was down on his luck, he was losing his grandfather's ranch and life was just about as low as it could get for Austin. His father wants something that Austin has and he will do anything and I mean anything to get what he wants. There is a lot of drama in Austin's life right now and he sure can use some really good friends by his side.
Sonya Tucker has led what some may say was a very unconventional life but she was raised with love, care, and "sisters" that would do anything for each other. You see Sonya grew up on the Wild Rose Ranch where her mother worked for a living in a brothel. Sonya and her sisters, daughters of the other ladies that worked in the brothel, grew up together in a safe environment, were looked after and were loved.
Austin is in need of help to save his ranch and his friends think that Sonya just might be the lady to put in charge of the project. I have to say their first meeting was off to an... interesting start might be the right words. I won't spoil it for you but Sonya has a way of getting Austin's attention.
Austin and Sonya click after that first meeting though. The chemistry is there, the friendship is growing quickly, and these two may have a whole lot more in common than meets the eye. I loved watching Austin and Sonya get to know each other. Their romance was fun and intense all at the same time. There are so many things that could stand in the way of these two being able to complete their project and there is a danger that is out there too. So many many things to handle and so many many fabulous pages for me to flip through quickly to see what might be around the next corner.
This is the second book in the Wild Rose Ranch series but it will stand just fine on its own. If you have had the pleasure of reading the first book, Dirty Little Secret, then you are going to love the chance to catch up with Roxy, Noah, and Annabelle. This is an intense series that shows what can or could happen to children of women that are in this profession. It also shows how these ladies end up being a professional at Wild Rose Ranch. Some of the stories really break my heart and it fills me with joy to see that some of these girls are able to get out there and get a job and make a great life for themselves. I truly love this series and I can't wait to see what Ms. Ryan comes up with for the next book in this series.
So if you enjoy a great Cowboy Story then you really must grab this one, if you love Ms. Ryan's work as I do, then you need to grab this book, if you love a great story with plenty of drama with some tough issues then you need to grab this book! Grab the first book while you are shopping, you are going to love them both!
I was given the opportunity to read this fantastic book and it has been my pleasure to share my thoughts with you.

About Restless Rancher:
One minute down-on-his-luck rancher Austin Hubbard slept soundly, the next, a sassy spitfire dumped a pitcher of water on his head and woke him up—in more ways than one. Hired to help him rebuild his ranch, Sonya Tucker ends up helping him put the tattered pieces of his life back together. The capable, all-business accountant is on a mission to get the ranch up and running, but can he convince the temptingly beautiful woman to take a chance on him?
Sonya was dismayed that Austin had lost it all: money, family, respectability. Things she—who’d been raised by her mother at Nevada’s notorious brothel Wild Rose Ranch—only dreamed about. But working with the long, lean cowboy shows her that Austin is honorable to his core. Together they slowly grow to see what the love between them might bring.
But then Austin’s powder keg of a family feud explodes, exposing long-buried secrets, and threatening their new-found love…
