Tasty Book Tours Guest Post + Review + Giveaway: Stone Cold Cowboy by Jennifer Ryan

You are all in for a treat, Jennifer Ryan is going to gives us the low down on why Montana Men are hot. 

What Makes Montana Men so HOT

When I think of the rough, rugged land in Montana, I think of the even tougher guys who live and work there. After all, there’s something about a cowboy. Their strength of character. That rock solid guy, who knows who he is and what he wants. Under all that grit lies a man who’s got down-home charm and manners any mama would approve. Their loyalty runs bone deep, as deep as their love for home and family.
Cowboys are wild at heart. They work hard and play harder, that wild streak taking them from the ranch to the rodeo circuit where there’s no fear or hesitation to get on a giant bull or ride a bucking bronco around an arena, chasing the thrill of the ride.
Let’s not forget how damn good they look in those tight jeans. Or even better, sitting atop a horse. All it takes is one cocky half grin and a sexy as hell narrowed gaze from under their cowboy hat and any woman would melt in their strong arms. Oh yeah!
With such an iconic image and the beautiful Montana landscape to draw from, it wasn’t hard to imagine these gorgeous cowboys.

If you’re looking for sexy cowboys with wild ways and big hearts, look no further than my Montana Men in AT WOLF RANCH, WHEN IT’S RIGHT, HER LUCKY COWBOY, and out now - STONE COLD COWBOY. HER RENEGADE RANCHER will be available on 9/20/16.

Stone Cold Cowboy
Montana Men #4
By: Jennifer Ryan
Releasing February 23, 2016

The last thing rancher Rory Kendrick expects to find when he’s searching for his missing cattle is a genuine damsel in distress. After rushing to help, he can’t help wanting to do anything he can for this lovely but damaged woman. But even his kind deed won’t get Sadie to tell him who’s responsible for hurting her.

Sadie is trying to hold onto her family, and her life. With an ill father who’s refusing treatment and a younger brother who has fallen in with a dangerous crowd, she’s beginning to feel like she can’t save anyone, least of all herself. When her brother owes money to the wrong people, Sadie tries to pay off his debts, but she doesn’t have the cash. The one person who might be able to help her out is the last person she wants to involve in her family drama, but Rory won’t take no for an answer.

Rory is all about family, but sometimes you’ve got to let go. If you can’t save them, save yourself. Sadie’s been dealt a bad hand she refuses to fold. Because he loves her, he’ll do anything to keep her safe and give her the happy life she deserves, even betray her trust to take down her brother.

My Thoughts:

I have enjoyed all the previous Montana Men books, and I was excited to find out that we were going to get more of the Kendrick boys and their grandfather. YAY! In Her Lucky Cowboy we got to meet them at the auction, they seem like a hoot. Today we get to meet Rory, the serious one. Being the oddest he naturally wants to watch over his family and make sure they are all taken care of. Completely understand. Plus, he comes off as gruff and scary at times, or at least to Sadie. Now Sadie is trying to hold everything together. She has a lot on her plate, like keeping her brother out of trouble (which is a lost cause) and making sure her father is taken care of (after all he's dying). The idea of fun and things for herself is a bit foreign to her. 

Now Jennifer knows how to make a dramatic beginning to a story and I think Stone Cold Cowboy is probably most dramatic to date. When people think of Montana they think of mountains, national parks, and bears, normal people do not think that Montana has huge meth problem. By the way it does have a Meth problem, not something you think about. Part of the story reminded me of Breaking Bad. Sadie's brother is with some bad dudes that will kill anyone that will get in the way. Sadie is extremely lucky Rory happen to stumble upon her otherwise it would look to good for Sadie. We have Sadie feeling indebted to Rory and his family, because her brother. However, Rory doesn't see it that way. Rory is a good guy, but he lacks communication skills when it comes to Sadie. You can see why he kind of scares her. They have a few things to work on, which is lull time. You know bad things are happen, but that's in the background till we get closer to the end when a lot of things go down. Fortunately, Sadie has Rory's big strong arms to keep up and safe. 

Overall, Stone Cold Cowboy is pretty good read. It's like Breaking Bad comes to Montana. You have some bad guys and DEA lurking around. As you read you hope that it doesn't get too ugly, but you never know when drugs are involved. However, Rory is a hero you can count on when the going gets tough, and I can't wait to read his brother's story. One of the hardest thing for Sadie in the book is letting her brother go, because she's use to saving him. Yet, there comes a time where you can't save someone who doesn't want to be saved.
