**I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review**

After taking a job on a quiet Montana dude ranch, ex-cop Rylan Frederickson finds herself surrounded by unbelievably sexy cowboys. Too bad the one she wants is her boss...and the single dad of a four-year-old. It doesn't matter anyway, because after a recent tragedy, there’s simply no more room in her heart.

Letting a new woman into their life is the last thing Cole Haywood wants for him and his daughter, Birdie. But as Rylan’s presence at Paint River Ranch breathes new life into his family he can’t ignore his growing attraction.

When the sparks between them turn into fireworks in bed, Rylan’s torn between the family she’s lost and the one she may have found. Now she must decide if something that feels this good is worth the risk.

Well, this has only been my second Cowboy story, and I have to say that I will be reading more of them, lol. At least if they are all like Mr. Haywood. ;)
Both Rylan and Cole have difficult pasts which makes it hard for them in their current situation to trust and let their guard down. Rylan moves to Paint River Ranch to get a fresh start and  to try to let life happen. When she meets her future boss in, what I would say is quite the first impression lol, she's instantly attracted but her brain works overtime to tamp it down. Same goes for Cole, though from his interpretation of their first encounter he's a little fuzzy on the details. They both try to, not really deny that they are attracted to each other, but to not give in to temptation. But when they do, woohoo! It was so sexy!  As they try to keep things casual, feelings start to develop and they both start getting antsy. Cole & Rylan  have to let go of their past in order to move forward, a job a little more difficult for her than it is for him. But that's what being there for each other is anyway, right? 
I thought it was a great read and I loved all of the characters as well. And I'm especially looking forward to Tucker's story, he's the funny layed back one so you know its going to be good. lol
