I will admit that there's a family story that went on each of the books. The Part was about the possibility of their Mom being alive so they could have their questions answered. The Author chose for her not to be alive. I have to say I'm disappointed in that decision.
Avery had plans to be a pro barrel racer, but that dream ended when she was badly injured years ago. It took years for her to recover, and her family still coddles her, but she has moved on, despite still being afraid of horses. She also can’t forget the humiliation suffered in high school when HW pretended to be Ry and kissed her. But Ry insists he’s grown up and he wants her forgiveness. It takes some patience and persistence, but they’re soon dating. Ry is being helpful to Avery and encourages her to broaden her wings beyond working in her parents’ hotel, but after the painful recovery from her accident, she’s hesitant. But the deeper their relationship grows, the more that Avery wonders if Ry is taking on the responsibility of her, rather than letting her stand on her own two feet.
Before Ry’s mother mysteriously left the boys years ago, she told him to take care of his twin. Ry has always been there for HW, but now he’s feeling smothered, especially since his twin doesn’t seem to have a care in the world for Ry’s feelings. At least by returning home to work on the ranch he’s doing something that his family will be grateful for, and he gets a second chance to reconnect with Avery. She is like the one that got away, and now he’s going to reclaim her. She is leery of Ry at first, mainly because he is such a charming lothario and she’s afraid of losing her heart to him again, but being around him has her relaxing, and it feels so right being with him. But Avery’s family thinks she still needs coddling. Can she convince them that she’s now a grown woman?
Avery’s injuries were the result of a horse landing on her and have left emotional scars on her long past the healing of the physical scars. Of course, being on the Morgan Ranch means there are horses around, and Ry tries to get Avery to trust horses again in hopes that one day she’ll ride one. Avery isn’t the only one with emotional scars: Ry may have only been five years old when his mother left, but he still remembers the pain of her favoring HW over him. He still has unexplained nightmares that he hasn’t yet deciphered, but after experiencing one around Avery while they’re in bed one night, he begins to talk about them in order to sort it out. In THE LAST GOOD COWBOY, some answers are found to what happened to the brothers’ mother and sister, which has been the ongoing mystery in the Morgan Ranch series. While this tale can be read as a standalone without too much of a problem, it’s helpful to have read the others (THE RELUCTANT COWBOY and THE MAVERICK COWBOY) to get a sense of the other characters.
A reunion that turns into an emotional journey for Ry and Avery in THE LAST GOOD COWBOY makes their story both entertaining and sizzling.

Event planner Avery Hayes and rancher Ry Morgan have been friends since childhood, and more than liked each other during high school. After years of being on the road, Avery as a very successful barrel racer and Ry on the pro rodeo circuit, they are both back in their hometown of Morgantown, California. Since surviving an almost deadly fall and many surgeries, Ashley is finally looking forward to the future. Ry wants permanency, a little serenity, and a break from shepherding his twin brother, the rodeo superstar. Avery and Ry rekindle the old sparks while dealing with Avery's fear of horses, Ry's memories about his mentally ill mother, and Chase's wedding. Chase is Ry's brother who happens to be a millionaire.
This is an interesting story and the plot developed at a nice pace. However, with the introduction of so many characters in the beginning, it took me a little while to get everyone straight in my mind. I instantly bonded with Avery and Ry because they were extremely genuine and honest personalities. Their sexy times were replete with desire and caring. If you are in the mood for a cowboy-themed romance with a little bit of intrigue, some unique situations and fun, then pick up a copy of this book.

Avery Hayes has also left the Rodeo circuit, but only because her life was shattered (literally) when her barrel raising horse fell on her and shattered her leg and hip. She now works at the family hotel in Morgantown.
Through a series of events Ry and Avery will be drawn together. He will help her overcome her fear of horses, and she will help him find meaning in life after the Rodeo.
But it isn't that cut and dry. There are personal stories at work here that are much more painful and deep than either Ry or Avery can understand. Ry's mother ran away when he was just a kid and that has left a world of hurt for him. But his other brothers want to find mom and reunite, but they don't fully understand why Ry doesn't want to do that.
As the story unwinds the personal side of each persons pain comes to light and healing has to take place. The raw tension of the relationship between Ry and Avery is very profound and you wonder at times whether they can survive it or not.
I enjoyed the tension of the relationship, the drama of past life and the working through of family turmoil that both Ry and Avery must face in regards to their relationship with their siblings.
But as with most books like this everything works out in the end.
