Guilt ridden for the past twenty years over tragic events from his past, Ezra James hid behind the hard work of running his ranch The EZ Does It.  As a big man, Ezra knew he could come across as intimidating but when store owner Palmer Wynfield showed flat out fear towards him, Ezra retreated even more into himself.  Six years later, Ezra couldn’t believe his ears when he’s awaken by a phone call from Palmer asking for his help.

Palmer, known to his friends as “Wyn” seems to attract the wrath of abusive men and couldn’t help his reaction to seeing someone of Ezra’s size entering his clothing store.  Even though Ezra didn’t deserve such an reaction from Wyn, Ezra insulting Wyn by calling him ‘Mr. Fancy Pants’ was very hurtful, and it took six years for Wyn and Ezra to move past it.  When faced with bullies from his hometown, Wyn took the advice of a friend and called Ezra to come help him.

Away from Cattle Valley, Ezra and Wyn see a different side of each other and explore their attraction to one another.  Will their newfound relation last once they return to their lives in Cattle Valley?

Rough Ride is another sweet installment in the Cattle Valley series.  I’ve been waiting for Ezra and Wyn to wise up and admit their attraction to each other and it is well worth the wait.  Ezra actually has a personality, and an awesome sense of humor.  I adore Ezra and Wyn together and love how they bring out the best in each other.  I like this series and I enjoyed reading Rough Ride. Ezra and Wyn’s story takes place simultaneously with Kyle and Gill’s from Sweet Topping and even though the books can be read as stand alones I strongly recommend reading this series in order.
