Everything’s bigger in Texas, including weddings. And misunderstandings.
Colorado wedding planner Mason O’Reilly lands a major contract: a two-hundred-guest wedding at the Leanin’ N Ranch, where his friends Ford and Stoney are working to provide a safe space for GLBT events. The Wright/Preston ceremony is a destination wedding, and as the grooms are from Texas, everything is done over the phone and email. There’s no way that could lead to trouble, right?
Oil tycoon Noah Wright isn’t happy about the impending disaster, but he admires Mason’s quick thinking and grace under pressure. And that’s not all he likes about the out-and-proud wedding planner. Even though Mason’s interested in Noah, his Mr. Right can’t possibly be a rancher from Dallas.
Finding Mr. Wright, the second story in the Leaning N series by BA Tortuga, involves wedding planner Mason O’Reilly, a secondary character from Commitment Ranch. I had wanted Mason to get his HEA and here he does. Though it takes a while.
All the wonderful characters from the original story are here, Stoney, Ford, their kid and the various ranch hands including their chef (who needs his own story). They form a wonderful foundation along with the Leaning N ranch for Mason and Noah Wright to meet, clash and learn to love. Of course, there are Texans, lots of mad Texans, transplanted to Colorado with a side trip south for good measure. I have to admit, that was the part that threw me here for a little while.
Normally I love the Texas influence in BA Tortuga's stories but when it went upscale (how I love me BA Tortuga's redneck cowboy lovers) as it did with Wright's family, especially with Noah's mother who I sort of despised, part of the heart went out of this story and it went cold. I understood that we needed to see where Noah was coming from and how much he had to work through. Totally worked. Still think his mama owes Mason a huge apology.
It took at trip back into the snow, up into the mountains of Colorado to find the warmth and heart of this series, for Noah to realize where his future was, as well as the fire and romance that pours out of this series. The Leaning N Ranch and all the come out of there are special. BA Tortuga creates these little villages of people that form unique families, ones you never get tired of reading about. All sort of quirky and wonderful. There are lesbian partners, chefs with a past who make up incredible concoctions, tattooed hulks who show up and never leave only to become indispensable in the kitchen, and of course Stoney and Ford and their kid. Now there's Mason and Noah.
Can't wait to see who's next. Yes, I love this series. Yes, I recommend it. Pick up the first one and head to this one next. I'm already eagerly awaiting the next installment.
Cover Artist: Bree Archer. I like the cover but wish it was just a little more detailed
The wedding activities and descriptions were pretty fun and it's the first time I've ever heard of a donut wall. At around midpoint in the book, after the wedding is over, it follows their progress, or lack thereof, as a couple but it fell flat for me at this point. I couldn't see them as much of a couple at all. I get the long distance thing but neither were shown making a whole lot of effort to be together. Mason did, more so than Noah, but there was too much telling about what they did while apart and not enough showing them spending time together. In one instance when they were together at Noah’s home, there was an episode that I thought would create some conflict or tension to spice things up, but that mostly fizzled out.
The characterization was strong enough, yet both Noah and Mason were rather bland. There just wasn't enough emotion or substance in the relationship building to make a strong impression on me. I can recommend it as a slightly humorous, light-hearted, escapist story with a strong western theme. It also ties in characters from book one and I'm sure other secondary characters will appear in planned sequels. If the Dreamspun Desires stories are among your favorites, you should enjoy this one.

For me, there was too much telling and not enough showing when it came to the development of the relationship between Mason and Noah. We saw them together and yes they had chemistry but when at 60% one was thinking they loved the other I had no idea why I couldn’t feel it or hadn’t seen it. Since the two spent so much time apart just texting more of those conversations should’ve been shown to the reader and not just told. It was those places, those times that apparently (I assume) these two fell for each other.
There were many inconsistencies as well. Noah’s sister was this nice-ish spoiled brat of a woman getting married at her brother's expense (ok he’s a billionaire but damn with the greedy) who on top of getting everything she wanted for her wedding she asked for more and off Mason and Noah to get it. She had times where she was so needy for her brother’s attention she took him away from Mason; even once arguing with him that he shouldn’t be “canoodling” since he’s paying him for the event. Then all of a sudden she’s telling him not to let Mason go and blah blah blah. It felt so out of character for her to suddenly be responsible and given that, it threw me. Then the fact that his mom was a total douche canoe to Mason and Noah did nothing, said nothing to her. He said he should. He thought about it. But in the end he said nothing. So for me it felt inconsistent with who he was and turned out to be unresolved.
I loved the two guys and I think the story had great potential but there were too many things that took me out of the story and irritated me and I was unable to move past them. I’m not giving up on this writer because she has written some wonderful stories that I absolutely love such as Best New Artist.
