Book Description

Mossy Glenn Ranch:

The Mossy Glenn Ranch used to be a successful spread, but two demented owners in a row put an end to that. Although it was sold out from underneath them, three siblings re-purchase as much of the property as they can, and hire three men, Carlos, Will and Troy from Where There’s a Will, to bring the ranch back to the productive state it once was in.

Will convinces them to make the ranch a haven for those cowboys and cowgirls who can’t be themselves on other ranches. He wants a home for not only him and his men, but he wants a family for them, too.

The different people who live and work at the ranch bring something special to it. Their lives are as twined together as their stories.

Chaps and Hope by Bailey Bradford

Book one in the Mossy Glenn Ranch Series

It’ll take hard work for Carlos, Troy and Will to turn the Mossy Glenn Ranch into the successful business it used to be, and even more challenging will be making the place their home.

Carlos, Troy and Will met in Where There’s a Will. They found each other and a love not many people could imagine. It worked for them, and they’ve been handed a chance at a new life and a home of their own.

The Mossy Glenn Ranch, owned by three siblings, Nick, Rory, and Annabelle, used to be flush with success. Then the previous owners destroyed almost everything, selling their heritage right out from under the three.

They bought part of it back, and asked Carlos and his partners to make the place successful again. It’s a chance he grabs with both hands once his guys agree, but there are challenges for all of them, and Will’s desire to make the place specifically LGBT-employee friendly and safe may cause more trouble than they already find when the get to their new home.

From a situation in town that reminds Will all too much of his own abusive past, to the surprising support of many of the townsfolk, the trio find themselves facing new challenges and reaching for the love and support that grows stronger between them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Read! September 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
'Chaps and Hope' is book one in Bailey Bradford's new series, Mossy Glenn Ranch, and is, essentially, a continuation of Carlos, Troy and Will's story whom I met in 'Where There's a Will'. The guys have moved to Montana to take over the running of the Mossy Glenn Ranch for the three siblings who own it, Nick, Annabelle, and Rory. I loved coming back to my guys because I knew this would be a wonderful story and that the sex would be out of this world hot. I wanted to watch Carlos, Troy and Will settle into their relationship and for each of them to find their niche.

The guys get to the ranch and discover a mess. Someone graffitied the barn and house, fencing has been torn down, the house was broken into and garbage and dead rodents are all over. Yuck. They get to work on the fixing up, although Troy has a bit of a run-in with the local bigoted hardware store owner. Will has a great idea about advertising for hands in GLBTQ friendly publications, ensuring they get employees who aren't fazed by Carlos, Troy and Will's relationship, plus the ranch could offer a haven to anyone who is down on their luck in an unfriendly situation. I have to admit that when the author introduced Drake, the guy who said he knew nothing about animals or ranching but he sure could ride a cowboy, I had high hopes I would get to see more of him!

Settling in and getting the ranch up and running takes more work than even they thought it would. They hire some ranch hands and, of course, Drake as the cook, but since someone keeps graffitiing the barns, they have to keep stopping regular work to repaint. Then Troy discovers the hardware store owner having beaten the hell out of his son, and Troy calls the police while trying to keep himself from being attacked by the crazy bigot.

5.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 Stars all the way! June 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
After the end of the Love in Xxchange series, I had HUGE hopes that Bailey was going to continue on with the characters. Her series had pulled me into the world and I wasn't ready to let it go yet! So I was really excited when I found out that she had sorta continued the series, but with a new town and state.

So then Mossy Glenn Ranch series started, and it starts with Carlos, Troy and Will. The 3 men who we were left with in the Xxchange series. This story is how they got settled in their new lives, and new roles in life.

I was excited to find out that how their lives were going to change with starting over together. During the course of this book, they are faced with the prejudice of a small town. I did like that part because in the Xxchange series, there wasn't that much prejudice in town. The men work together to try to get the ranch back up to par, as well as hiring help.

There is sex in this book, of course like all of Bailey's books, but there is more to the story than the sex. We are able to watch as Troy comes into his own, as Will "tries" to calm down his hyper self, and as Carlos tries to watch out for them all.

During the course of this book, we can see some of the characters that we hope will be in future books. There is the drama, the fighting, the confusion and of course the love between the men. For this being the first book in a new series, I think it was done very well and I can't wait to read more from the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Multiple Hot Cowboys April 2, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story makes me want to go back and read the 1st one to find out how these delicious boys got together. I enjoyed their rapport, and their hot, hot, hot chemistry. It was an interesting story too about the challenges the GLBT community face. Overall, a great story, and after I get the 1st one, I will be waiting for another!

2.0 out of 5 stars well March 19, 2013
By sdal
Format:Kindle Edition
I normally enjoy this author's books but this one was not at the same level and I really should have only given it one star. it was really just a bunch of not even hot sex scenes with a very loose story wrapping them together. If the author had focused more on the auctual story line the book could have been very good.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not What I Expected from the Preview March 31, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Mostly just sex scenes, and not all that interesting as erotica. There might be a story somewhere in here, but it's difficult to determine where it is. The story line jumps from one person to another with little announcement or transition.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good story, what there was of it June 1, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
More story please, less stereotypical horny gay men. The story, what there was of it was really good. Lots of possibilities, humour, and a cast of very different and engaging characters. Please give the readers some substance.
