A fist fight, a snowstorm, a stolen kiss in the barn... and a second chance at love.
Ford Nixel has two law offices, two fancy condominiums, and all the right connections. In short, he has everything he wants.
The last thing he needs is his Uncle Ty’s stake in the Leaning N, a ranch that’s been in the family for generations. Ford hasn’t even been to the ranch in over a decade, not since he left his boyfriend Stoney behind and headed back to college alone.
Ford arrives at the Leaning N to find Stoney, now a single father, right where he left him. A fist fight, a snowstorm, and a stolen kiss in the barn later—Ford knows none of the heat between them has dissipated.
If a sweet, feel-good romance about a big city lawyer and a cowboy sounds like your kind of thing, then you don't need to look farther than B.A. Tortuga's Commitment Ranch. Throw in some drama, likable characters, and a too cute for words little boy and you've got yourself the makings of a book that will make you smile. Commitment Ranch is part of Dreamspinner Press's Dreamspun Desires line so you know going into this book what you're going to get. A bit of sexy times, a strong romance, and an HEA that will leave you all warm and fuzzy.
Ford Nixel has been called home the Leaning N ranch by his Uncle Ty. Ty is dying and he needs Ford's help in order to ensure that the ranch keeps going. Ford is all willing and able to help, only problem is his ex, Stoney, still lives and works on the ranch, and owns almost half of it. Oh, and his son lives there, too. Ford and Stoney's parting was not sweet, it was messy and ugly so you know there are going to be heaps of unresolved issues between these two guys. In true B.A. Tortuga style, these issues are handled rather quickly and without a whole lot of depth. Even though this book is over two hundred pages, there is a lot that is left unsaid. And there are parts that dragged and seemed rather unnecessary. The family dynamic on the Leaning N was really nice though, and all the secondary characters were pretty fabulous, especially Geoff and Quartz. I mean we have a vegan cook on a ranch full of people who love their meat and potatoes. I enjoyed the setting and the whole family dynamic. The dialog and phrases were a bit hokey at times, but mostly felt genuine and authentic.
This is the start to a new series, and I'm already looking forward to the second book and catching up with all these people. Commitment Ranch is a quick, easy read that will definitely make your heart full and happy. Give this one a chance!
