This is about the blending of 2 families. Jay, his Sister, Niece and Nephew are from the city. When Jay is forced out of his job due to downsizing and the possibility of finding employment in the city is extremely difficult. Jay decides to expand his search parameters in the job search, he runs across a dude ranch in Montana that is looking for a full time marketing director. The job comes with a home, minimal compensation and a horse. This is how Jay and his Family find themselves at the Crooked Tree Ranch.
Nate and his Brothers run the Crooked Tree Ranch and they are losing market share to competing dude ranches in the area. The Ranch needs someone to market them and that is where Jay comes in.
This is a non angsty story as the reader knows what is eventually going to happen. The pacing of the story was well done, it kept my interest throughout the whole time. The reason I liked the pacing so much is that it felt real, a possible real time sequence of events that felt natural as the family from the city melded with the family in the country. This is also a feel good story due to the nature of the acceptance that is shown for everyone. We say on a daily basis that what 2 men or 2 women feel for each other is as natural as heterosexual relationships and that is a strong point in this story. One of my favorite scenes is when Jay is giving Nate a BJ in his office and Luke (that is Nate’s youngest brother) comes into the office after knocking and says “You do know this office has windows”, I think I snorted, it’s actually one of my favorite lines in a book.
If you noticed I gave the book a 3.5 star rating and you are probably wondering why. This book had everything for a 5 star rating until the end. The ending rushed up on me so fast it felt like a herd of mustangs running from a pack wolves. Once Nate and Jay accepted the need for each other the ending came up suddenly, I would have really enjoyed seeing them spend some time together as a couple, I felt like I was denied that privilege. Whether or not I’ll get the ending that I needed in book 2, I’ll just have to see when I read The Rancher’s Son.
This book is great, a really good introduction to the start of this Montana series. RJ Scott writes the best books! The characters in all of this author’s series so far have been well developed, and the books usually have a sweet, interesting and fun feel to them without a whole lot of unnecessary angst. And I feel like in this book specifically, we get a definite family vibe included as well since we learn about all of the extended family members, too; it’s not just focused on the two main characters. I liked this series enough after I read the first few books that now the audio is out for the first few in this series are out I had to add those to my library too so I can listen to this series as well as read them.
Nate and his two brothers (Gabe and Luke) own one-third of Crooked Tree Ranch. They end up needing some extra help getting the word out about the ranch in order to increase their revenue to keep from losing the ranch and everything they’ve ever known. That’s where Jay comes in. Jay and his Sister Ashley, and her two kids decide to make the move to Crooked Tree when Jay gets laid off his previous job. It’s hilarious to see how they move from the “Big City” to experiencing ranch life first hand. Jay and Nate have a really funny and awkward first and second encounter with each other creating some instant dislike. But it’s fun watching them trying to work together, navigating their relationship, thoughts and feelings and then bending to each other’s ideas of what would work best in bringing the ranch into the future to make more sales. This book is pretty short with how much is packed into it. We get the background story for the main characters in this book. We get a cute added bonus watching the relationship of Gabe and Ashley grow without taking away from Jay and Nate’s story. As well as getting set up with the backstory of some of the smaller characters we will see in the next few books as well. Overall, I really liked this one and think it was decently paced with a good premise and storyline. From previously reading these (to now listening to the audio) we get a really solid series with this set of books.
Jay lost his marketing job and because he supports his sister, niece, and nephew, he takes a job on a dude ranch in Montana. It comes with a house and a horse, how could he pass it up.
It also came with Nate. His boss, the man who ran him over with his horse, broke his phone, was surly, and gorgeous. They didn't exactly hit it off. Once they got past the animosity, the very real attraction between them needed to be explored.
Family is the center of this story. What people do to protect those they love and fall in love with. What they sacrifice to keep them safe. How blood isn't the only thing that creates family.
This was a nice story about people falling in love. Slow burn, relatively low key drama. It was slow in places and there were a few unanswered questions but I assume they will be answered in the following books.

It was well written and I loved the characters. There was a good story, good support characters and not all based on sex. The sex happened as the relationship developed naturally.
No problem recommending, looking forward to reading more from Crooked Tree Ranch.
