Heartbreak Ranch by Anastasia Ryan - Book Tour, Book Review, Giveaway


Heartbreak Ranch
Anastasia Ryan
Release Date: 10/15/13
Publisher: Swoon Romance
New Adult 17+
Recent college graduate, Graysen Beaufort, resigns herself to two weeks of boredom at a dude ranch honoring her parents’ wishes for one last family vacation.

She doesn't plan on meeting Colt McCord, an irresistible cowboy who threatens to bring disorder to Graysen's ordinarily ordered life.

Dodging an overprotective family, an unwelcome suitor, and certain heartbreak, Graysen struggles to break free of her limitations and submit her heart to Colt’s love. But learning to let go isn't easy, even with a man like Colt.

Colt McCord, White Pine Ranch’s head horse trainer, loves the busy, back-breaking work of a cattle ranch.

But when he meets a beautiful and spirited woman from Iowa, she makes him forget everything he'd known before, and he risks everything to be with her.

Colt is accustomed to breaking horses, but can he tame Graysen’s wild heart before it is too late?

MY REVIEW -


Graysen wanted to go to Paris and experience going to the Louvre with her friends for the summer before she starts her masters. Instead, she was forced to go to some-ranch with her family and siblings before they all start to part ways. Her parents wanted them to bond, and spend time together – how is she to get out of it? She was looking forward for two weeks of boredom – until she caught a glimpse of one hot cowboy – Colt McCord. 
 Colt McCord is one hot cowboy. Who doesn’t want their own cowboys???! He’s the head horse trainer, and he’s the best in taming difficult horses, he loves his getting his hands dirty and hard labor. But the first time he saw her - he was attracted to her. 
The total contradiction of Graysen. She was through and through a city girl, who doesn’t know how to ride horses or doing much labor. Her family treats like she’s sixteen rather than twenty, some jerk wants to get into her pants, and of course, there’s the what-happens-after-the-vacation-is-over-anxiety. 
 While she tried to fight the attraction off, he wanted to pursue her. Two weeks is a short time, if he wanted to act, he’s got to make his move now. Colt may have been the best in town when it comes to breaking horses, but can he break Graysen’s barriers? 
 I had fun watching the two of them get together, Graysen learning how to ride, and finally admit that there is something between them.  It started with the sneaking around until finally Graysen had enough courage to stand on her feet, and yes, acted like a responsible 20-year old adult. It was not out of disrespect, or to spite her parents for letting forcing her to go with them, but it was to show them that she was capable of making her own decisions, she was standing by it and is willing to suffer the consequence (if it has any). I think this was the most beautiful part of the novel (plus all those steamy, hot scenes that will make you wish for your very own cowboy).  It was a short, sweet read – sorta breather after all those emotional turmoil I have been through with my past reads. If you want something light, romantic, and sexy – you have to read this one!
