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.
