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”.
Love me a cowboy!!
One of my dreams, or bucket list destinations has always been a week at a dude ranch. Ok, a week might not be enough. Watching those guys wrangle calfs, ride horses as if they were born in a saddle, ogle their backside – naughty me.:-)
So, reading Retreat made me think about all that. Wishing it was me, going on a cowboy retreat. Ha, and I’m from the San Francisco Bay Area as well.
Cyrus Warner was such a grump. He rarely smiled and usually scowled, especially at Leora “Leo”. Cy didn’t look like a cowboy, styled hair, muscled, motorbike boots, and NO cowboy hat, at least Leo thought so and let him know in no uncertain terms. For Cy, Leo looked like someone that expected to be catered, too. A girl from the city that wanted to play cowgirl.
What awesome beginnings. Sexual sparks and animosity galore.
Leo instantly rubbed him the wrong way, from the very first moment he laid eyes on him, but he also couldn’t help being attracted to her.
For Leo the retreat was a way to leave the misery behind, and let nature cleanse her abused soul. Leo just ended a relationship with a guy that turned out to be married to her boss. She was still licking her wounds and had a hard time believing people after being deceived. But for her best friend Emry she gave this idea of a cowboy retreat a chance.
For Cy meeting Leo was a distraction he didn’t expect or want. His priorities were his brothers and his family’s ranch. But nevertheless it didn’t take long for Leo and Cy to succumb to their attraction.
Both deserved a break. And Cy was exactly what Leo needed to get back some of her self esteem.
Cy and Leo, were fantastic characters. She, a city girl, snarky, successful and and a bit damaged. Him, a guy that never really wanted to be a cowboy, but had it in his blood. He lost his wife to a divorce when he moved back to Wyoming and took over his father’s ranch. The timing of their meeting was not the best for Leo and Cy, but they both acknowledged that whatever time they got was better then nothing.
I loved both Cy and Leo. But especially Cyrus. I thought he was a wonderful. Strong, commanding, and a take charge kind of guy. He liked what he saw in Leo. He believed in her and gave her back the confidence and faith in people that she lost. He wanted her exactly the way she was. I wouldn’t say no to a cowboy like that. Apparently Leo thought the same…
All in all Retreat was a wonderful and fast paced novel. The beginning was a little slow but picked up very fast and turned into a thrilling ride. All of the characters in this book were wonderfully depicted and layered. I loved Cy’s brothers, especially Sutton. There was so much pain in him. And I can’t wait to read his and Emry’s story.
Cy, who is a cowboy but isn't a cowboy, is all that and more. He is not too young (big bonus in my opinion!), pure male, and knows what he wants and isn't afraid to speak his mind.
Leo is an outspoken city slicker chic being drug on an outdoor adventure with her bestie after sustaining quite the heartbreak and rude awakening. This vacation turns out to be just what she needs and opens her eyes to all she's been missing out on in her life. Cy, the not really a cowboy, has a little to do with it but is also just another awesome part of the trip.
But this vacation turns out to be not all fun and adventure, it suddenly gets scarily dangerous. All hell breaks loose. But Jay always takes care of her readers, right?
And I cannot wait for more Jay Crownover cowboys....OMG!!!
