The antagonist was made of cardboard and the couple of scenes with her provided mixed signals. (Example: antagonist is confronted, told ancillary character is safe when that was not clear. Antagonist (who we are assured is made of two scoops of hell with extra devils) looks momentarily relieved before reverting to evilhood. Why? Is there some reason for the antagonist's behavior we are not privy to? We never find out; it just hangs out there.)
The ending was jarring and unsatisfactory, and the resolution didn't feel like one.
Jeannie Watt is one of my favorite romance writers. Her use of language is terrific, her dialogue crisp, and her protagonists three-dimensional. Save this book until you've read her better works (like MADDIE INHERITS A COWBOY.)
Wrangling the Rancher is a wonderful romantic story. Cole is great at what he does. He loves working on a ranch, being outside is what he likes best and he enjoys his newfound freedom. His past is still bothering him though and he knows he eventually has to do something about it before he can find real happiness. Taylor enters his life at an inconvenient time, but she doesn't have a choice. She worked hard for her career and it's gone in an instant. She tries to find a job in a big city, but it's tough to be hired somewhere. She isn't a quitter and I loved her strong and resilient personality. She and Cole are constantly challenging one another and that kept the story interesting from beginning to end. They have plenty of sparks, but the situation is complex and I couldn't wait to find out where that would lead.
Jeannie Watt has chosen a fantastic rural setting for her story. I immediately fell in love with the ranch and enjoyed reading every single description of the countryside. The vivid writing makes the surroundings come to life incredibly well and I could easily picture the buildings and the land. The fact that the main characters seem to be opposites gave the story a fabulous powerful vibe and the dialogue kept making me smile. Wrangling the Rancher is dynamic, charming and very entertaining.
The aggravation Cole and Taylor feel when in the same room, even the same stall (!) is both funny and a way of hiding their undeniable attraction, which neither wants, but can't seem to escape. And the inevitable occurs at about the same time that Taylor begins to realize that working outside instead of crunching numbers is something she enjoys. She also has some ideas about how Cole can help his sister and maybe even get his ranch back from the clutches of his step-aunt. But how is any of that going to happen when--wonder of wonders--after 3 months of rejections, Taylor finally gets another job. In Seattle. Yes, it's only part-time, but it could become full time. Which she takes and then finds herself miserable.
How this story ends is too good to give away. Enjoy it as you prepare for fall.
