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.
“I really want to kiss you right now.”Her gaze dipped to his mouth. If he wanted to kiss her, she needed to kiss him. She slid her hand up his shoulder to the back of his neck and pulled him in. She stared into his eyes and saw a hunger there that matched her own. She’d never felt this overwhelming urge to be close to someone, let alone a man, but something about Rory drew her in and made her want to stay.“Did you change your mind, or are you just trying to kill me?”His deep voice resonated through her. She pressed her lips to his, thinking it just a test. A way to see if they fit, connected on a deeper level than the pull she already felt toward him.The second her lips touched his, fire lit through her system. She pulled back surprised that such a simple thing could spark such deep and overwhelming need. The same fire she felt flashed in his golden-green eyes.“Once wasn’t enough.” This time, Rory pulled her back and kissed her, wrapping her in his strong arms.

For me it's always a happy day when I get to read anything by Jennifer Ryan. From the first book I read of hers I've been hooked. She just writes the type of books that I like to read. She writes a mix of suspense along with heart breaking moments that can make you cry.
You won't be able to help yourself you are going to LOVE her alpha men. They are so strong, yet also sweet and gentle with the ones they love. They will go to the ends of the earth to protect those that are near and dear to them.
Just what you want in your romance hero!
I am so glad that Ryan took the time to include the Kendrick brothers in her Montana Man series. For the second they showed up I knew they would be something special. Their grandfather too! And I was right. I love them all but I will admit Rory is my favorite. I just love when you get to know a character and find that there is more to them then what you thought.
Rory is one of those characters. He comes off very cold and uncaring and right away you see that that's not true. He does have a heart and feelings he's just careful with who he shows them too. Right way you see that heart when he with Sadie. It might seem like they fall for each other to quickly but I think for them it works. Both have past issues and being together really helps with them.
From the first page I couldn't stop reading this. The story just jumped off the pages! Now I have to wait for her next book, Her Renegade Rancher which is out on 9/20. OMG!!!! The wait is going to kill me.
If you've read Stone Cold Cowboy or any other book by Jennifer Ryan I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading!
