Round Up (Lost Creek Rodeo #1) by Rebecca Connolly, Sophia Summers, Heather B. Moore


Broken Heart? Check. Ranch retreat? Check. Handsome cowboy? ...Check.

The rules at Broken Hearts Ranch are pretty simple: no romance between staff and visitors. Ryan Prosper, rodeo has-been and ranch manager, hasn’t had a problem with that. His sister runs the therapy side of the place while he handles the ranch itself, and the balance has worked well. But when Talia James shows up for her turn at the retreat, things get a little more challenging.

Talia needs this therapeutic retreat badly, and hopes that it will be just what she needs to get unstuck after her tragic loss. The charming cowboy brother of her new therapist is a ray of sunshine she hadn’t anticipated, and spending time with him seems to do as much good as her sessions. But is her still broken heart ready for romance, and does she really have the heart to resist him?

Welcome to Lost Creek Rodeo!

Best friends at a small college in Texas, six cowboys rise to become pro-rodeo stars. Follow Ryan, Reid, Westin, Ford, Eric and Lars in these six swoony sports romances.

I think this is the third series that these three authors have written together.  Baseball first.  Then hockey.  Now cowboys.  It's some fun stuff!  I loved how a couple characters from those previous books made an appearance in this book.  The community and family is growing!

 Ryan Prosper must be the sweetest man ever.  He is kind, perceptive, and genuinely wants to support and help Talia.  He says and does the sweetest things.  That's my adjective for Ryan.  Sweet.  I loved how his own hurts and insecurities lessened as he helped Talia with hers.  There is strength and healing in sharing and helping.

You can't help but feel for Talia.  Her loss is great and overwhelming.  I can't even imagine.  It was so good to see her find some peace and healing and yes, love as she and sweet Ryan connect.

This was a good introduction book and set things up nicely for the books to follow.  I sure do love a good cowboy story!
