“Change is the end of something you know and the beginning of something you don’t.” ― Kholoud Yasser
Jayden Sullivan is a marketing expert who is out of work and trying to support his sister and her children. After being downsized from his job the only offers he receives are one from his cheating ex and the man he cheated with, or a ranch in Montana that needs to build their brand to save their way of life. It really isn’t a tough choice to make, and soon Jayden has packed up his sister and her children and moved across country into the great unknown.
Nathaniel Todd finds out that while he has been doing his part of running the family ranch, other parts of the business have been slipping. When he and the other partners decide they need to build a brand to save the ranch, he has no idea this will change not only his life but everyone else on the ranch too.
Nate has spent his life running the ranch and occasionally stealing a night for himself at a dingy biker bar, for a quick “wham bam, thank you man”. When Jayden Sullivan and his brood show up on Nate’s doorstep, he thinks he must have been crazy getting a city boy on the ranch, especially such a damned good looking city boy. He and Jayden have a rough start, but eventually they begin to work together when Nate shares what he loves most about the ranch.
Jayden is still trying to figure out what he got himself into by moving his entire family out to the Middle-Of-Nowhere, Montana. Soon he starts to see the ranch through the eyes of the people who love it the most, and he finds himself falling in love with the land and one tough-as-nails cowboy.
Jayden and Nate make a connection, and it seems to only grow stronger as they get to know each other and their respective families. RJ Scott has once again written a solid love story with a wonderful family connection. If there is one thing she seems to know, it is family. These Montana men might not be perfect, but there is so much love between them that Jayden and his family can’t help but get sucked right in with them.
With this being the first book in the series, there seems to be a lot of foundation building and character introduction, and that sometimes makes the story slow down. One of the things I loved was that Nate and Jayden didn’t just hop into bed five minutes after meeting. They actually got to know one another. I think this makes the romance more believable and gives them something great to build on.
As I said, this is the first book in a new series, and I can’t wait for the next one. If you haven’t read RJ Scott before, this would be a great place to start. If you have, then you know you won’t be disappointed.
