Leo and Cy were broken by past experiences, but somehow they knew they couldn't let their chance pass them by. Love isn't all cookie-cutter and perfect. JC reminds of that. Best surprise!
Told from the heroine’s POV, city girl Leo reluctantly agrees to go on a Wyoming adventure retreat with her best friend Emrys. The trip was aimed to help Leo get over her broken heart. At the ranch they encounter 3 hot cowboy brothers, so different in personality that they compliment each other well. Along with a misfit group of other tourists, they all take off on a wilderness adventure led by the aforementioned attractive Warner brothers. When the planned excursion steers into dangerous turn, it tests the strength - both physical & emotional - of the each member of the group.
“Little did we know then how those experiences would ultimately shape the rest of our lives. Those experiences would change the women we were and the way we loved. There was no running from any of that either.”
At first Leo appears as a snarky petulant city tourist who is emotionally vulnerable. She’s witty, super observant- especially of the behavior of those around her- and aware of her shortcomIngs. Yet l found Leo’s character growth in strength the most refreshing, inspiring, and real. Her journey in overcoming so many things: her physical limitations, her fears, her heartache, and Cy Warner’s constant scowl and disapproving looks - all made me want to wave my pom-poms at her each time she faced and pushed through - especially pushing the buttons of the very stubborn Cy Warner.
“You’re a smart woman, Leo. You know what he wants and you know that he’s not going to stop until he gets it. Gotta admit, it’s gonna tickle me pink watching you try and outmaneuver him for the next few days. Cy’s really good at getting his way.”
I know I was more than trickled pink watching Leo and Cy argue in a haze saturated attraction that both were trying to dance around.
Who says you need to hop on a plane to experience the WILD WILD WEST? Crownover delivers vivid descriptions will transport you into the open fields, big sky, and wild adventure. She paints a scene that not only included the “big picture”, but also the smallest details that transported me into Leo’s shoes, making me feel like I was touching, tasting, and seeing the same things!
“I got closer and closer to the striking and imposing house. There was a wide porch which circled the entire front of the house, with several wooden chairs covered in what looked like horse blankets spread across the space. There were antique-looking lanterns burning with a soft glow, and someone had taken the time to scorch the brand that was associated with the property on each of the pickets of the wooden railings. The setting was straight out of an old western movie but nice enough and welcoming enough toappeal to a wide range of visitors. Whoever was in charge of the setting and staging of this ranch had put in painstaking time to get things just right, with no detail missed. The line between working ranch and vacation property had been traversed perfectly, and I was having a hard time seeing any of the men I’d met so far being responsible for that kind of knowing touch.”
This was definitely a 5 Star read for the strong heroine, sexy cowboys, and edge-of-my-seat suspense !

Cy is Mr. Personality, at least that’s how Leo calls him and honestly that’s the best description ever. Cy is the oldest of 3 brothers, we also get to meet Sutton (“grumpy”) and Lane (“smiley”), they run a ranch in Wyoming and that’s exactly where Emrys, Leo’s bestie, booked a week-long wilderness retreat. But Cy is not exactly a picture perfect cowboy, with his styled hair, biker boots and no Stetson… Leo is a little thrown off about it and her insane attraction to him isn’t helping. At all.
Leo is as feisty as they come, she got her heart broken by a scumbag boyfriend and she’s still dealing with trust issues which means her walls are sky high. So, Leo is definitely angry and bitter at first, which kind of makes the banter between her and Cy amazing, but she’s also healing and pushing herself out there. I kind of loved the moments when she pushed her bitterness away for Emry’s sake.
The character growth is insanely perfect, the plot is flawlessly balanced, with amazing suspense, a lot of steam (the shower scene is one of my favorites!) and action packed but the damaged characters and how they grow through the story is definitely what I loved more about Retreat.
It’s a story about love, yes, but there’s so much more to it, it’s also about an amazing friendship between two strong girls, a journey about trust, self-growth and self-discovery. If you haven’t read Retreat yet, you’re definitely missing out! Highly recommended for anyone who loves a romance with cowboys or “not really cowboys”.
In an attempt to help Leo cheer up after an embarrassing lapse in judgment, her best friend Emrys talks her into going on a week long wilderness retreat. The minute she and Cy meet, you can feel the chemistry between them. He’s a broody sexy man that makes Leo feel things she’s never felt before. Leo with her fiery red hair, has the same effect on Cy and when it’s time for her to leave, they know it will be difficult to say goodbye.
Cy and Leo realized pretty quickly that it wasn’t worth the effort to fight their feelings, and it made more sense to just give in and enjoy the short time together they had. Both had been hurt in the past and they knew what they were getting into and had their eyes wide open. In addition to watching these two fall in love, there’s some action that happens in the mountains resulting in an incident that affects everyone.
I enjoyed this book and liked all the characters. If I did have a complaint it would be Leo’s fascination with the stereotype of what a cowboy is or should be. The word cowboy was used by her over seventy-five times and drove me a little crazy. I just didn’t see what that big deal was.
The next book in the series is entitled Shelter and is about Emrys and Sutton. Their story is set up nicely and I hope they’ll be able to help each other heal from the terrible ordeal they went through.
