In the New York Times bestselling tradition of Linda Lael Miller and Diana Palmer, comes the final book in RC Ryan’s heartwarming series about the Malloy brothers, Montana cowboys who find love while uncovering the dark secrets of their family’s past.

A new beginning . . .

A fresh start. That’s exactly what Ally Shaw needs and what she’s found in Glacier Ridge, Montana. Creating a simpler life with her young son and reconnecting with her only remaining family-it’s all part of Ally’s plan to chase away the pain of her past. But when a dangerously irresistible cowboy rescues her little boy, Ally can’t deny she’s excited about what else the future might bring.

Reed Malloy was a wild horse who wouldn’t be broken. Devoted to his work on the land at the expense of everything else, he’d never met a woman who could hold his interest . . . until Ally. And now, beautiful Ally and her fearless, freckled child have this cowboy wanting more. This isn’t Ally’s first time at the rodeo, though, and convincing her to trust him isn’t easy. But there isn’t anything he won’t do to keep her safe . . . and make her his.

Reed is a pretty standard romance, but I do have to admit that I enjoyed it immensely. It was a great take on a single parent romance, and I did like the huge family that Ally ends up getting brought into. I thought they were such a great cast of characters, and if I had started this series with the first book I might be compelled to continue reading. As it is, I really enjoyed this book it had all the twists and turns I love in a romance.

It was obvious early on that there was going to be a secondary story line at play which probably spanned the entire series I’m guessing, as it involves the brothers early life and their parents. I was glad that it got a resolution, because there was so much foreshadowing that what happened wasn’t really an accident that I felt bad for the 3 boys.  I did love the great grandfather in this story although calling him “Great One” was a little weird, but he was pretty awesome, full of snark, sassiness, and wisdom.  He was probably my favorite character in this book, just because he had the loving family patriarch down. This was a solid romance read, and I recommend it for anyone who loves romance, 3 out of 5 stars.

3/5 – Worth Reading
