review Crooked Tree Ranch

Nate Todd knows things have to change for Crooked Tree to survive He just doesn’t know how much of an effect Jay Sullivan will have on his lifeOn the spur of the moment with his life collapsing around him Jay Sullivan answers an ad for a mar. Considering its short length this book was amazingly well developed with solid characters Nate and Jay felt real to me They both had deep loyalty to their families and knew what they wanted There wasn t a lot of angst here just tension a slowly developing love story and two guys wanting a forever swoon on cue here A few plot points were seemingly dropped What happened to Justin Did Henry have something to do with it but I m assuming they ll be further developed in book 2 which I would happily read And of course ride me gay cowboys are always a boonsaddle up

Crooked Tree Ranch

Keting expert on a dude ranch in Montana With his small family he moves lock stock and barrel from New York to Montana to start a new lifeForeman and owner of a third of the ranch ex rodeo star Nathaniel ‘Nate’ Todd has been running Crooke. Jay city boy extraordinaireJay was recently laid off from his marketing job in New York He s desperate to find work so he can support his small family He s taken on the role of provider for his sister and her two kids After many unsuccessful attempts at landing a new job in the city he answers an ad for a business manager and marketing director at a dude ranch in MontanaNate gruff cowboy alpha maleNate is co owner of Crooked Tree Ranch a dude ranch that has been in his family for generations After a meeting with one of his partners in which he s informed they are on the down slope to going under he agrees to hire someone to come in and revamp the ranch and hopefully garner business He never expected someone like Jay to answer their adJay and Nate were simply adorable together After a few false starts they eventually agree to become friends with benefits in order to avoid any feelings developing Yeah right Like that ever works out Both want but is afraid to voice it Finally they decide to cut all the bullshit and just tell each other how they feel I love it when honesty prevails and we don t have to trudge through all the angst to get to the HEAThere are two things RJ Scott really excels at The first is the slow burn I m not normally fond of the slow burn I m of an insta love fan I have the patience of a four year old who was just told they were going to visit Disney World soon When I come across a slow burn while reading I usually end up saying something like When are they going to get together or Just hurry up and fuck already But with Ms Scott s books I get drawn in and find myself invested in the story than the sexy times Don t get me wrong I m all for the sex but I like everything else that goes into one of her books just as much The way it is drawn out is not angst ridden It is of a natural progression something you would see or experience yourself in real life Funny thing is this is the fastest I have ever read of her MC s getting together Usually it takes months or even years with her characters This time it only took three weeks But it felt like a lot time was spent with them getting to know each other It felt realistic and naturalThe second thing that RJ Scott is aces with is the portrayal of children and family In this book in particular Josh who is six acts just like a six year old would He s excitable and exuberant and so completely normal and just an all around joy to read about Kirsten is a sullen 15 year old who is hiding behind her goth persona and bad attitude until she figures out who she is I can relate to every bit of it It just makes the book all the believableI was thrilled at how the secondary storylines played out The portrayal of the secondary characters was thorough and fully fleshed out The time was taken to explain why some characters acted the way they did Take Henry for example When you first meet him you get the idea that he is just an intolerant hate filled bastard As you get to know him you see there is way to his story than simple hate There are reasons why he is the way he is That doesn t excuse his behavior but at least you have some understanding as to why he acts as he doesWhile the story does have a satisfying HEA there are a few plot lines that are left open ended This excites me because it means there are books to come I can t wait I m eager to read about these families and how their lives mesh together ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review

D Tree Ranch His partners in the business convince him that he needs to get an expert in to help the ranch survive He knows things have to change but when the new guy turns up with a troubled family in tow he just isn’t prepared for how much. Another RJ favourite for meCrooked Tree Ranch is the first book in the new Montana series by RJ Scott and let me just say I adored it I m a huge fan of cowboys so this was definitely my thingI loved the build up to everything Nate and Jay don t meet straight away But that gives us a nice bit of background and character introduction Two things that I really loved in this book We also had a chance to get to know the characters Everything started out really well which was a really good thingIt s unusual for me to adore kids in books Here though I adored them Kirsten and Josh were really great Kirsten the teenager definitely won me over straight away She wasn t the perfect preppy kid Josh was adorable and I felt both he and his sister complimented Jay He was such a dad to them It was definitely cuteThe romance was really sweet I liked the two together Both men had their issues in a sense But those issues seemed to make them perfect for each other And I hope we get to see of them in the series
