"The Maverick Cowboy" by Kate Pearce
This is the second in this series...Morgan Ranch # 2 that features Blue Morgan and Jenna McDonald and a few other wonderful characters that will keep you turning the pages. Yes, this will definitely be on of those reads that will have plenty of romance along with some real steamy hot sex scenes. Even though this is a series this novel can be read as a standalone but I do recommend that you read the first series too for even a better understanding of this series.
The author gives us a good story with Blue Morgan returning home from the Marines[of twelve years] who was trying to find his way back as a civilian and working together with his brother Chase and grandmother Ruth. Blue's his job was to care for the horses which put him into close situations with Jenna the local vet. How will this closeness affect them?
Jenna is a veterinarian in her uncle's practice where she spends a lots of time at the Morgan Ranch taking care of there livestock. We find Jenna having had a hard life being adopted and was fighting with her family[who were over achievers] due to her career choice. Even many of the locals [old schoolers] who thought that she couldn't perform her job due to the fact she was a woman. But will things chance as Jenna began to see Blue in a different light? What will happen as Blue become protective of Jenna? Well, before these two can get to an HEA [military guy & veterinarian] will they be able to make it through "[the gray areas of their life], survive Jenna's family, with her secrets and surprises from Blue's past and that crazy drunk rancher who didn't know when to stop." Now, how will this story all plan out as this family history that is so loaded with drama, mystery, suspense, secrets, hope, humor, friendship, redemption and love seems to continue that started in the first series. There is so much going on in this story line with all of its twist and turns that you will just have to pick this novel up and read it for yourself to see how well this author presents this entertaining and thought provoking story to the readers.
I found all the characters [Blue, Jenna, Chase, Ruth,Roy, January, Maria] to name a few who were all all well developed, portrayed, likable, believable that will definitely keep your attention to the end. The author gives this series a wonderful writing style that will definitely get you ready for the next series with involves another brother...Ry who is a twin.
